"Run To The Sun" as written by Pharrell L Williams and Chad Hugo....
Thinking about the time we share
And how I wasn't there
It hurt me
These people overwork me
Then I heard maybe soon you'll leave
Excuse me lord if you have tricks up your sleeve
I'm not ready to be bereaved
I know I'm always asking for something
Or another
But this time, it's just time
'Cause I love her
But baby if he don't change his mind
Or fate or time
Yo I want to leave you with this line

Chorus
It goes while you're here
I want to tell you something
It's that I love you girl
Yeah, and I wish we could run to the sun
And never come back
Yeah

Yesterday I tied two rocks together
That symbolize our lives
And threw them in the ocean
Now they're on the ocean floor coastin'
'Til they stop rollin' so far
That no sonar would list them
To the point that no one would even believe that we existed
I know that may sound twisted
But my neglect is killin' me
I feel so guilty
Please have faith in if you feel me

[Chorus: Repeat 2X]

Though you're probably feelin' blue
And you'll do what you must do
I hope you know
I'd hand the skies to you
I'm so embarrassed for mankind
They have the nerve to let their weapon shine
They're so stupid
Do they not know you're about to fly high
Away
With the wings that god will give you someday
I'm not jealous
I just can't take it
S.O.S. to your ears, the only thing I ever feared was this day
And having to say

[Chorus:]

    General CommentThis song is about Pharell's grandmother. She has leukemia. He wants to run to the sun with her. Then, they will no longer be on earth and will no longer have to accept the idea of time. that way, she won't die. Also, he's apologizing for not having been in her life as much as he should have. And, he's in denial about her leaving. He's just professing his love for his sick grandmother.

    General Commenti think this song is about a guy telling the one he loves (that apparently is sick and going to die) that he loves her and how he wishes none of it was happening. he wishes that they could forget everything and run away, and have no worries. how sad :(

    General CommentI agree with inygma and *Dizzy* mostly inygma because I believe Pharell grandma was sick and died around this time
