06. The Runaway

For the Love of the Game
by Pillar



 

Six o'clock on Friday
You thought you heard a little voice try to say
Time is running out
So why you looking out
For yourself
Later on that Sunday
You're looking for a little bit of leeway
You say I'll give it a try but
I don't got the time for you now

I tried to figure you out
I tried to figure you out
There's just no telling why

Why you wanna run away?
I think maybe you should stay right here
And maybe you'll appreciate
All that He's done for you
Everything He has for you
It’s all you wanted

Nine a.m. on Monday
You hear a little voice again try to say
What's it gonna take
How am I gonna break you down
You say it was bad day
Maybe it was just a bad mistake
Don't give up and quit
Make the best of it
Right now

Behind the Song:
“The Runaway” challenges those who’re on the fence in their faith not to run away from God. It’s written from the perspective of a believing friend who’s trying to help them take the next step, even though they’re hesitant to do so. “Why you wanna run away?” the chorus asks. “I think maybe you should stay right here/And maybe you’ll appreciate/All that He’s done for you.” Rob comments, “This song is written as if I’m talking to one of my friends—maybe a young person from my church, maybe somebody at one of our concerts, or just someone struggling with faith—and I’m trying to encourage them to give God a chance as they struggle back and forth with life decisions. That’s ultimately what it’s about.”
