"Time To Run" as written by and Ben Schneider....
It's time to run, they'll string me up for all that I've done
I'm going soon, gonna leave tonight, gotta
I did it all for you, well I hope you know the lengths I've gone to
What's a man to say? They'll be looking for me, should be on my way

(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
I wanted everybody else in the world to know
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
I wanted everyone to know that you're the girl for me
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
I wanted everybody else in the world to know it
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
That I ain't ever gonna let 'em take the life from me

I've no regrets, I will not ask for your forgiveness
Lower your defense, run away with me and it'll all make sense
I did it all for you, don't spurn me after all I've gone through
No time to rest, I'm gonna find me a life

(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
I wanted everybody else in the world to know
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
I wanted everyone to know that you're the girl for me
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
I wanted everybody else in the world to know it
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
That I ain't ever

How do you run but I know that I will be there beside in my favorite ideas
I will run but I know that I will be there beside in my favorite ideas

It's time to run, well I hope you understand what I've done
Run away for you, I'm gonna count the days 'til you make it through
I did it all for you, well I hope you live the life you want to
My time is spent, baby please don't tell 'em just where I went

(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
I wanted everybody else in the world to know
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
I wanted everyone to know that you're the girl for me
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
I wanted everybody else in the world to know it
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
That I ain't ever gonna let 'em take the life from me
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
I wanted everybody else in the world to know
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
I wanted everyone to know that you're the girl for me
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
I wanted everybody else in the world to know it
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
That I ain't ever

    General CommentI have no evidence for this, but I like to think he robbed a bank, took a huge amount of money, and in the process killed someone. He gave some of the money to his girlfriend, but he has to run to save his own life. He invites her to come with him, but if she stays, she's financially set, and he will always be with her in spirit.

    General CommentAlthough all very good interpretations, I think you guys are being to literal to the meaning. I think it's about the foolish things a man will do for a girl, but after even all that happens, even if he knows he's done and caught, he still doesn't regret based on his love for the girl
