He is like fire, burning through time
As old as forever, but fast in his prime
I saw his blue spaceship materialize
He looked out and said to me "Run for your life!"
I don't know why I never thought to ask for his name
But I really don't think he'd have told me the truth anyway
But that's ok

It's completely terrifying, but it's so, so exciting
He said I was brilliant and I could change the world
So many places I've been; there's so much more to see
We've got galaxies and planets and moons
And an awful lot of running to do

As a full-time companion he gave me a key
And a phone with a signal in every galaxy
As we fell through the vortex I felt so free
Please don't let this danger just be another dream
'Cause my life before you was unreasonably mundane
I've never been happier although we face death every day
I wouldn't have it any other way

It's completely terrifying, but it's so, so exciting
He said I was brilliant and I could change the world
So many places I've been; there's so much more to see
We've got galaxies and planets and moons
And an awful lot of running to do

And you know you can fix that Chameleon Circuit if you try hot-wiring the Fragment Links and superseding the Binary Binary Binary Binary Binary Binary...

It's completely terrifying, but it's so, so exciting
He said I was brilliant and I could change the world
So many places I've been; there's so much more to see
We've got galaxies and planets and moons
And an awful lot of running to do

    This touches on the experiences of the companions, but a lot of the good lines are from donna's time. The title of the song even comes from one of donna's lines: he saves planets, rescues civilizations, defeats terrible creatures. And runs a lot. Seriously, there’s an outrageous amount of running involved. And jenny echoes that when she leaves "oh, i’ve got the whole universe! Planets to save, civilizations to rescue, creatures to defeat… and an awful lot of running to do! "

    I think it's about donna's view :"fix that chameleon circuit if you try hot-wiring the fragment links and superseding the binary..... "

    This song is about doctor who. And the adventures with the doctor from the point of view of the campanions. I think it may be rose's point of view but i am not possitive about that..

    This is totally from rose's perspective. This even has bits of the first episode in it, where he tells her to run for her life, and then a later episode where he gives her a tardis key. It's about rose, no one else.
