"Runaway" as written by and Joel Dowling Matt Corby....
She speaks like the rain,
But she howls at the moon.
She runs like the sun in the winter,
She's not coming home soon.

She follows the rain,
She runs like the water.
She revels in all his pain,
She hits like her father.

She speaks like she wants,
Words dripping with disdain.
She tells you she loves another,
But she keeps you in awe, keeps you insane.

'Cause she don't give a shit about you,
She will let you run away,
So just run away, run away.
No she don't give a shit about you,
She will let you run away,
So just run away.
No she don't give a fucking shit about you,
She will let you run away,
So just run away.
No, she don't give a shit about you,
She will let you run away,
So just run away.

    General CommentThis is my personal interpretation
    It seems its a message from him to the girl who he is interested in. Matt seems almost heartbroken and he just wants the girl to notice him, just him. Almost like a cry, for the girl to care. He has convinced himself that the relationship will go nowhere so he's giving himself a pep talk. In a way he is sabotaging the relationship himself as he doesn't fight for the girl either, he rather 'runaway'. It feels like they are both emotionally in love but don't seem to work it out when it comes to real life.

    PS when I first heard the song I thought the line 'But she keeps you in awe, keeps you insane.' When i first heard the song I thought it said 'but she keeps you warm keeps you safe.' hehe

    Amazing song.
