P!nk – “Run”


This is another song off of P!nk’s newest album.  She wrote this for her baby daughter.  I was listening to it yesterday, thinking about a mother singing this song to her daughter and it made me sad.  Well, sad and rather impressed with P!nk.  I always get sad when I think about mothers actually loving their children and being nice to them.  When I think about love in a family I am either incredulous and SURE that it’s total bullshit, or I am sad that I didn’t have that with my birth family.  P!nk didn’t have a very good relationship with her parents growing up.  I think that is what makes her so fiercely protective and loving toward her own daughter.  The lyrics to this song are really touching.  She talks about wanting to keep her daughter safe from the hurt of the world, but knows she can’t protect her from everything, so when she hurts, she can run back to her mother’s arms.  She also talks about how she is going to treasure every smile, and how she won’t waste their time together.  There isn’t a music video to this one, and I’m guessing there probably won’t be.  The lyrics are included in the video I posted, but I am still putting them below.  Enjoy!

 

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh [x18]

Remember make believe in you
All the things I said I’d do
I wouldn’t hurt you, like the world did me
Keep you safe, I’d keep you sweet
Everything that I went through,
I’m greatful you won’t have to do
I know that you will have to fall
I can’t hide you from it all

[Chorus]
But take the best of what I’ve got
And you know no matter what
Before you walk away, you know you can
Run, run, run,
Back to my arms, back to my arms
Run, run, run, back to my arms and they will hold you down
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh [x4]

See, here’s the bloody, bloody truth
You will hurt and you will lose
I’ve got scars you won’t believe
Wear them proudly on my sleeve
I hope you’ll have the sense to know
That sadness comes and sadness goes
Love so hard and play life loud
It’s the only thing to give a damn about

[Chorus]
But take the best of what I’ve got
And you know no matter what
Before you walk away, you know you can
Run, run, run,
Back to my arms, back to my arms
Run, run, run,
Back to my arms and they will hold you down

All this time I swear I’ll never waste it
All your smiles I’m always gonna save them
Put it in the back of my mind
Whenever I’m away from you [x2]

Run, run, run
Back to your arms, back to your arms
Run, run, run
Back your arms and they will hold you
Whoa, whoa, whoa
Back to my arms, back to my arms

All this time I swear I’ll never waste it
All your smiles I’m always gonna save them
Put it in the back of my mind
Back to my arms, and they will hold you down
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh [x2]
They will hold you down
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh [x2]

  1. I love P!nk for all that she is, what she rights and the passion she shares.

    • Me too! I could listen to her all day long. 🙂

      • Totally! When my ex and I were splitting up I played “You Make Me Sick” 24/7 I swear! But you know something, it got me through that patch of time in my life.
