"80's Comedown Machine" as written by and Fabrizio Moretti Nick Valensi....
It's not the first time
That I've watched you
Passing by
I've tried too hard
To get back there
But, you never try
Anymore

Tried to get in with you
For a second time
You said the world closed down
But, you caught it

Get back inside

So please
Run away
So please
Run away

I tried to believe in it
For a second try
It's there in the safe
Why don't you
Close the blinds

For the night?

So please
Run away
So please
Run away

So please
Run away
So please
Run away
Run away
So please
Run away
Runaway

    My InterpretationTo me it's about trying to get back together with an ex. Recapture what you used to have. When you look back on a relationship long after it's over you generally remember the best times. You come back only find out that ship has sailed and you don't want to face it. It's hard to leave it behind so you'd rather the other person run and eliminate the possibility for you. "Close the blinds" so I can't see you anymore. "Please run away"

    My InterpretationRad song. Julian's perspective toward Albert Hammond Jr. perhaps? Watched you passing by. Not on time anymore. To be honest I'm unsure what exactly this song is about. But there were no comments on this song and I wanted to be the first. First comment WHAT UP?!?!?!?!
