Midnight Hour – Running Away lyrics

Don't lie and say that it's ok.
It's alright here, there's
nothing more to say.
So I'm running away.
I'm leaving this place.
Yeah, I'm running away.
I'm running away.

Don't tell me I'm the one to blame.
It's too late for you to make me stay.
No, I won't stay.
So I'm running away.
I'm leaving this place.
Yeah, I'm running away.
I'm running away.

And faster than you can follow me from this lonely place.
And farther than you can find me, I'm leaving
Yeah I'm leaving today.
And I, I'll never let you find me.
I'm leaving you behind with the past
No, I won't look back.
And I don't want to hear your reasons.
Don't want to hear you tell me why I should stay.

And try, and try to understand me
And try to understand what I say when I say I can't stay
I, I'm moving on from this place
I'm leaving and I won't quit running away.

I'm running away.
I'm leaving this place.
Yeah, I'm running away.
I'm running away.

    I love, love, love this song and listen to it often. The lyrics can involve other people, but I think it is a battle that we all face within ourselves. When faced with decisions, we go back and forth between our needs and the needs of others. Our actions affect those close to us, however, when we follow our hearts, our dreams, and our passions, those that pursuits can and do affect others. Parents worry about children moving forward. Siblings worry for us and the choices we make. Friends are concerned for our well-being. "i'm running away" means I'm running from the here and now. And not going back.

    I don't know if I'm right but I think he's in a relationship with this girl and they've broken up, the relationship isn't working anymore or she cheated on him and he's running away, moving on and finally getting away from the pain of having to be together. Maybe she's trying to make him stay but he knows he can't pretend that everything is okay between them so he's just going to forget her and make sure that she doesn't drag him back so he's just going to continue running away from her.
