I just wanna run, hide it away
Run because they're chasing me down
I just wanna run, throw it away
Run before they're finding me out
I just wanna run

I just wanna run
I'm out here all alone
I try to call your house
Can't reach you on the phone
I'll gather up the nerve
I'm packing up my bag
It's more than you deserve
Don't treat me like a drag

I'm feelin' like I keep on talking
I'm repeating
Myself, my words lost all meaning
I keep talking
I repeat myself

I just wanna run, hide it away
Run because they're chasing me down
I just wanna run, throw it away
Run before they're finding me out
I just wanna run (run, run, run)
I just wanna run (run, run, run)

Like a game of chess
I predict your move
I think I know you better
Better than you do
I'm sick of feeling cheap
Cheated and abused
Sick of losing sleep
Thinking about you

I'm feelin' like I keep on talking
I'm repeating
Myself, my words lost all meaning
I keep talking
I repeat myself

I just wanna run, hide it away
Run because they're chasing me down
I just wanna run, throw it away
Run before they're finding me out
I just wanna run (run, run, run)
I just wanna run (run, run, run)
Throw it away

I just wanna run, hide it away
Run because they're chasing me down
I just want to run, throw it away
Run before they're finding me out (out, out)
I just wanna run (just wanna run, just wanna run)
I just wanna run hide it away
Run because they're chasing me down
I just wanna run throw it away
Run before they're finding me out
I just wanna run (run, run, run)
I just wanna run (won't finding me out, won't finding me out)
I just wanna run

    It means you just want to run away from all the stress and drama going on and just be free from it all. It especially means that you are sick and tired of waiting for that special someone to say i like you or just to treat you right. This is a song about being free from everything that ties you down.
