When the lights go out
Will you take me with you
?
And carry all this broken bone
Through six years down in crowded rooms

And highways I call home
Is something I can't know till now
Till you picked me off the ground
With brick in hand, your lip gloss smile
Your scraped up knees and

If you stay
I would even wait all night
Or until my heart explodes
How long?
Until we find our way
In the dark and out of harm
You can run away with me
Anytime you want

Terrified of what I'd be
As a kid from what I've seen

Every single day
When people try
And put the pieces back together
Just to smash them down

Turn my headphones up real loud
I don't think I need them now
'Cause you stop the noise out


If you stay
I would even wait all night
Or until my heart explodes
How long?
Until we find our way
In the dark and out of harm
You can run away with me
Anytime you want

Anytime you want
Anytime you want

Don't walk away (x3)

'Cause if you stay
I would even wait all night
Or until my heart explodes
How long?
Until we find our way
In the dark and out of harm
You can run away with me
And you can write it on your arm
You can run away with me
Anytime you want

    I think its about gerard's wife lindsey. Because they dated in the summertime and she was active (not like she isn't now) on stage so she had scraped up knees and she wrote on her arm "run away with me' and gerard answered with 'anytime you want'

    The girl gave the boy hope, in the face of desolation and helplessness. She was his light, his way out. Now, he'll give his all for this girl

    In an interview, Gerard says how the producer Rob Caballo told him to get a little more personal and so on. If you look a little bit closer, Gerard and Lindsey met apparently in the early MCR years, correct? He said he had become good friends with Lindsey, and during that time, Gerard was dating Eliza Cuts. After him and Eliza broke it off in early 2007, he and the guys went on the Projekt Revolution headlining with Linkin Park, and MSI and a supporting act. That's where he met up with Lindsey again, and they would hang out all the time, later on they dated throughout the tour, and they would write on their arms and body ect. and many of them were meant for each other. One famous one was, "run away with me" - Lindsey, "Anytime you want" - Gerard. The "pick me off the ground," I feel means how Gerard felt horrible after he and Eliza cut off because they were together for years, and once he reconnected with Lindsey, he felt better. "Scrapped up knees," Have you seen Lindsey on stage?! The woman jumps, falls, dives, so on, she is bruised up and scarred all over her legs and arms. "Terrified of what I'd be, as a kid from what I've seen," Gerard said once that he never thought to have make it past thirty, never mind marry and have a kid. Frank also stated that Gerard was "the kind of kid who said he'd never get married and never have kids." "I don't think I need them now, 'cause you stop the noise" Lindsey took up all of his time in a good way. In conclusion, this song was for and about Lindsey Ballato. I hope the best for them and Bandit.

    I think it means... That the guy loves the girl he is hoping to be with, but, now he is gonna let the girl he loves to give him the signal on if she really likes him or not... As the guy will wait for no matter how long, whether it is to stay awake all night for her or not... He will always wait for her, cuz he loves her with all his heart. He believes in that tiny thread of hope... He has tried his best into letting her know that he loves her, now its up to her, and she can run away with him anytime as he is always.. Always ready, he waits patiently, sacrificing his work, the things he likes to do, just for her... This is how i feel for a girl i really love. I love her for her personality, she is dazzling.

    Basically a guy that really likes a girl, but hes not sure if she really want him for ever, or just for now. And hes trying to tell her that she is safe with him and will be loved
