Musical Monday: Love Runs Out by OneRepublic

I recently took my nine-year-old daughter to see OneRepublic. When it appeared the concert was over she turned to me and said, “But they can’t be done! They haven’t played Love Runs Out!” I smiled and told her to be patient.

The band didn’t disappoint. A few minutes later the familiar beat of one of her favorite songs echoed throughout the amphitheater and she squealed with delight.

“Love Runs Out”

I’ll be your light, your match, your burning sun,
I’ll be the bright, in black that’s makin’ you run.
And we’ll feel alright, and we’ll feel alright,
‘Cause we’ll work it out, yeah we’ll work it out.I’ll be doin’ this, if you had a doubt,
‘Til the love runs out, ’til the love runs out.I’ll be your ghost, your game, your stadium.
I’ll be your fifty-thousand clapping like one.
And I feel alright, and I feel alright,
‘Cause I worked it out, yeah I worked it out.I’ll be doin’ this, if you had a doubt,
‘Til the love runs out, ’til the love runs out.

I got my mind made up, man, I can’t let go.
I’m killing every second ’til it saves my soul.
(Ooh) I’ll be running, (Ooh) I’ll be running,
‘Til the love runs out, ’til the love runs out.
And we’ll start a fire, and we’ll shut it down,
‘Til the love runs out, ’til the love runs out.

There’s a maniac out in front of me.
Got an angel on my shoulder, and Mephistopheles.
but mama raised me good, mama raised me right.
Mama said, “Do what you want, say prayers at night,”
And I’m saying them, ’cause I’m so devout.
‘Til the love runs out, ’til the love runs out, yeah.

I got my mind made up, man, I can’t let go.
I’m killing every second ’til it saves my soul.
(Ooh) I’ll be running, (Ooh) I’ll be running,
‘Til the love runs out, ’til the love runs out.
And we’ll start a fire, and we’ll shut it down,
‘Til the love runs out, ’til the love runs out.

Oh, we all want the same thing.
Oh, we all run for something.
run for God, for fate,
For love, for hate,
For gold, for rust,
For diamonds, for dust.

I’ll be your light, your match, your burning sun,
I’ll be the bright, in black that’s makin’ you run.

I got my mind made up, man, I can’t let go.
I’m killing every second ’til it saves my soul.
(Ooh) I’ll be running, (Ooh) I’ll be running,
‘Til the love runs out, ’til the love runs out.
And we’ll start a fire, and we’ll shut it down,
‘Til the love runs out, ’til the love runs out.

I’ll be your light, your match, your burning sun,
I’ll be the bright, in black that’s makin’ you run.
And we’ll feel alright, and we’ll feel alright,
‘Cause we’ll work it out, yes, we’ll work it out.
And we’ll start a fire, and we’ll shut it down,
‘Til the love runs out, ’til the love runs out.
‘Til the love runs out.

    1. Thank you. It was a sweet memory. She would stand in front of me, watching the stage and listening. Then she’d lean back against me, grab my hands and we’d dance to the music. Love that little girl of mine. 🙂

Don't be shy! I'd love to hear from you.
