"Getaway" as written by Scott Michael Underwood, Charles Colin, James W Stafford, Pat Monahan and Robert S Hotchkiss....
If I could ride this slide into forever
What would I give to getaway
That pain, that stain,
Seems like forever
What would you give to getaway

I know this is how I could be over you
You know this is not another waste of time
All this holding on can't be wrong
Just come back to me and I am not alone

You had your man your fan but not forever
You should have let him
You should have let him getaway
But your pride made you ride on this slide by his side till hislies
Seemed like forever
What would you give to getaway

I know this is how I could be over you
You know this is not another waste of time
All this holding on can't be wrong
Just come back to me so I am not alone
To getaway
To getaway
To getaway
To getaway

I know this is how I could be over you
You know this is not another waste of time
All this holding on can't be wrong
And I know this is how I could be over you
You know that I am not another waste of time
All this holding on can't be wrong
If you come back to me so I am not alone
To getaway?

    General CommentThe Drops of Jupiter album is such a great break-up cd. That's all I've got to say.

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful. It's about wanting someone to come back into your life...like you can't live without them. You know you would be good for that person, and you just want to be with them.

    General CommentWhen you can't stand being without that person. It's worth taking the chance again, just to avoid the pain that comes with separation. It's really a great song, like how you feel when your trying to get over someone.

    General CommentI think that this song is about knowing that you need to be with someone, yet also knowing that it is going to take alot for you to be together and sometimes it may be easier just to get away from the whole ordeal, but the love is still holding you there. Anyways, thats what I get from it,

    My InterpretationI think this song is also about the grief that comes with losing such a special person or relationship. In this song, there is a real refusal to let go and move on. The persona of this song knows that they have to be able to 'getaway' in order to heal. However, this would force them to realise that the relationship is truly over which they are not prepared to do. In fact, the persona seems quite determined to stay in a place of emotional pain and grief so they can stay connected to the person they have lost.
