The Runner Lyrics

Kings Of Leon - The Runner

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 train come back

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 train come back

Awful sick and tired of the gang
And it's cold and it's cold and it's cold and it's
cold when you're near
Cold when you're near any bottle
And it's cold and it's cold and it's cold when you're
near
Cold when you're near any bottle
And it's 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
