My New All-Favourite Song: ‘Runaway’ by Aurora

I first heard a part of this song in the season finale of “The Following” and I fell in love with it.

“Runaway”

I was listening to the ocean
I saw a face in the sand
But when I picked it up
Then it vanished away from my hands (Darling)
I had a dream I was seven
Climbing my way in a tree
I saw a piece of heaven
Waiting, impatient, for me (Darling)

And I was running far away
Would I run off the world someday?
Nobody knows, nobody knows
And I was dancing in the rain
I felt alive and I can’t complain
But now take me home
Take me home where I belong
I can’t take it anymore

I was painting a picture
The picture was a painting of you
And for a moment I thought you were here
But then again, it wasn’t true (Darling)
And all this time I have been lying
Oh, lying in secret to myself
I’ve been putting sorrow on the farest place on my shelf (La-di-da!)

And I was running far away
Would I run off the world someday?
Nobody knows, nobody knows
And I was dancing in the rain
I felt alive and I can’t complain
But now take me home
Take me home where I belong
I got no other place to go
Now take me home
Take me home where I belong
I got no other place to go
Now take me home
Take me home where I belong
I can’t take it anymore

But I kept running for a soft place to fall
And I kept running for a soft place to fall
And I kept running for a soft place to fall
And I kept running for a soft place to fall

And I was running far away
Would I run off the world someday?
But now take me home
Take me home where I belong
I got no other place to go
Now take me home
Take me home where I belong
I got no other place to go

Now take me home, home where I belong
Now take me home, home where I belong
Now take me home, home where I belong
Now take me home, home where I belong

I can’t take it anymore…

Aurora Aksnes is a Norwegian songstress with an amazing powerful voice. And to think she is just 19 years old!
Here is something interesting that I just found:
Runaway This almost reminds me of the “Dictionary of Obscure sorrows”.
