Running away through the nights so black
The stars on my shoulder are pulling me back
Whispers of you ringing through my ears
Trying to forget all the wasted tears
And all your lies in your blue eyes
Another day goes by
And all I can say is Oooooo
Wish I could forget you ohhh
But you keep coming back
You're running away through the nights so black
The stars on your shoulder are puliing you back
Maybe you can forget but I just can't
One day I'm here and one day I'm there
Somedays I wake up and I just don't know where
I see the lights on the city streets
I'm wide awake while the world still sleeps
In all my dreams the picture freezes
And every night it's always the same Oooooo
Wish I could forget you ohhh
But you keep coming back
You're running away through the nights so black
The stars on your shoulder are puliing you back
Maybe you can forget but I just can't
No I just can't x2
I just can't
Running away through the nights so black
The starts on my shoulder are pulling me back
Whispers of you ringing through my ears
Trying to forget all the wasted tears
Wish I could forget you ohhh
But you keep coming back
You keep coming back Ooooooo
Wish I could forget you ohhh
I just can't

    Running away is about lauren. He still thinks about her. So he currently dedicated this song for lauren. He can't forget about lauren, but she keep running away. :(

    Greyson means by this song... Not love... His songs aren't about that usually... This song is about his fears and nightmares and him running away from them and finding hope and dreams instead of nightmares and fears! It means alot to different people but thats what he truly wrote it about!
