All Time Low – Runaways lyrics

[Verse 1]
Only a quitter, would let it go,
I'll be your fool and one man show.
I was so bitter, till' you came along,
You set my sails when the tide was low.

[Pre-Chorus]
We're going down this road,
With tears in our rear-view mirror.
Far from home, but in the dark you know,
With me you've got nothing to fear.

[Chorus]
So let's run away!
They will have to find another heart to break.
Why don't we just run away?
Never turn around, no matter what they say,
We'll find a way.
When the sun goes down,
On this town there'll be no-one left but us.
Just like runaways!
They will have to find some other hearts to break,
Hearts to break.

[Verse 2]
Out in the distance, lost in the fold,
We trace our steps to a great unknown (great unknown!).
Bury our toes where the ocean meets the sand,
We hide ourselves right where we stand.

[Pre-Chorus]
We're going down this road,
With tears in our rear-view mirror.
Far from home (far from home), but in the dark you know,
With me you've got nothing to fear.

[Chorus]
So let's run away!
They will have to find another heart to break.
Why don't we just run away?
Never turn around, no matter what they say,
We'll find a way.
When the sun goes down,
On this town there'll be no-one left but us.
Just like runaways!
They will have to find some other hearts to break,
Hearts to break.

[Hook]
They won't catch us,
In the dark.
Roll like thunder,
Burn like stars.
They won't catch us,
In the dark.
Roll like thunder,
Burn like stars.

[Bridge]
Run away,
They will have to find another heart to break,
Heart to break.

[Chorus]
So let's run away!
They will have to find another heart to break.
Why don't we just run away?
Never turn around, no matter what they say,
We'll find a way.
When the sun goes down,
On this town there'll be no-one left but us.
Just like runaways!
They will have to find some other hearts to break,
Hearts to break.

    I feel like this is not just a song about love but that even someone with no love interest can relate to this, like leaving behind negativity and people that have hurt or betrayed you, maybe fake friends or troublesome families, people who hurt you. Sometimes you need to runaway from the pain and move on to something better, stand up for you and be strong.

    To me the line "With tears in our rear-view mirror" symbolises getting away from the pain that has been brought to you that's what gives the line "So let's run away,They will have to find another heart to break." shows that if you move on and throw the negativity out of your life they can't hurt you and will have to find someone else to hurt.

    I can see the love/relationship side to it as it can signify standing together despite what others have to say, but at the moment this song I can relate to due to losing friends who only hurt and belittled me, I'm "running away" by getting rid of their negativity and being strong and leaving the "tears in the rear view mirror" and moving on to a better new beginning.
