Kings Of Leon - The Runner

KINGS OF LEON


The Runner Lyrics

Hard times as we go, we know what times will change
I talked to Jesus, Jesus says I'm okay
Pushin' and jumpin', jumpin' the mountain range
And in a railroad, railroad from hell to Maine

While she says she's on her own
I'll be pacin' on the phone
Sneakin' on the stake of clam
Awful sick and tired of the gang

She comes from nothing
Hopin' for a taste of fame
She's got a birthmark
A birthmark the shape of Maine

While she says she's on her own
I'll be pacin' on the phone
Sneakin' on the stake of clam
Awful sick and tired of the gang

And it's cold and it's cold
And it's cold when you're near
Cold when you're near any bottle

Cold and it's cold
And it's cold when you're near
Cold when you're near any bottle

Hard times as we go, we know where times will change
I talk to Jesus, Jesus everyday
(Hard times as we go)

I felt the song wasn't just about a mans love for a woman with drinking problem, rather about the insecurities of both the man and the woman. the woman has an acute drinking problem, which has prompted the man to turn to a semi-delusional religious fervour (forgive the flowery language, its simply more fun!), as exemplified in the songs references of talking to Jesus.

I feel it's about a guy who can't get over his lover. He references to her as Maine for Maine is both very far away and also cold which gets even colder once he drinks. Hes trying to be the runner and let her go but he can't. Not sure though just like the rest of us lol

how about a woman that has a very important job in her destiny, but she keeps running away from it, drinking her fears in alcohol instead of pursuing it?

I don't know, I was wondering the same thing. The impression I get is its about unrequited love for a girl who has an alcohol problem. But I'm not 100 per cent. what do you think?
