Run Away With Me - Carly Rae Jepsen



The Experience: Carly's new pop single shows us what the Album Emotion has to offer: a fun-filled voice that still sounds very young, filling this pop single with a feeling (or Emotion?) that wants you to Run Away With Me. This single promises fun and excitement as Carly runs away with the beat, but where is she headed?

Video: The first-person video follows Carly dashing through Tokyo, Paris and New York. Her promotor David Kalani Larkins basically filmed Carly as she went along. We see her having fun, chasing bubbles and dancing in fountains, as well as stuck in traffic and flying planes. The lo-fi feel to the video makes all the fun more real, and makes Carly seem more real too.

The meaning of Carly Rae Jepsen Run Away With Me is all about Running Away With... feelings. It's not so much a song about love as a song about feeling in love. Love feels intense, and Run Away With Me wants her lover to "take me to that feeling." Carly's on the hunt for intense feelings, and her lyrics describe more what she wants to feel than what love is. 
Questions go unanswered: will this last or just be a one-night-stand? She doesn't say. Does she want to feel the power of love because she loves him... or because she just wants to feel love?
It almost feels like Run Away With Me is a single about chasing feelings, trying not to think too hard... because if you did, you'd realize it wouldn't work out. The song seems to say "please don't think, just run away with... that feeling." 

Ask Yourself: I know that feelings are intense, but come and go.  Do I run away with my feelings, or do I hold on to something that will last?

LYRICS:
You're stuck in my head, stuck on my heart, stuck on my body, body
I wanna go, get out of here, I'm sick of the party, party
I'd run away
I'd run away with you

This is the part, you've got to say all that you're feeling, feeling
Packing a bag, we're leaving tonight when everyone's sleeping, sleeping
Let's run away
I'll run away with you

Cause you make me feel like
I could be driving you all night
And I found your lips in the street lights
I wanna be there with you

Oh baby, take me to the feeling
I'll be your sinner, in secret
When the lights go out
Run away with me
Run away with me
Oh baby, every single minute
I'll be your hero, I'm winning
When the lights go out
Run away with me
Run away with me

Up in the clouds, high as a kite, over the city, city
We never sleep, we never try, when you are with me, with me
I wanna stay
I wanna stay here with you

Cause you make me feel like
I could be driving you all night
And I found your lips in the street lights
I wanna be there with you

Oh baby, take me to the feeling
I'll be your sinner, in secret
When the lights go out
Run away with me
Run away with me
Oh baby, every single limit
I'll be your hero, I'm winning
When the lights go out
Run away with me
Run away with me

Hold on to me
I'll never want to let you go
(Run away with me, run away with me)
Over the weekend
We can turn the world to gold, oh oh
(Run away with me, run away with me)

(We can turn the world to gold)
Over the weekend we can turn the world to gold
Oh oh, oh

Ooh my baby, take me to the feeling
(Take me to, take me to it)
I'll be your sinner, in secret
(Oh when the lights go)
When the lights go out
Run away with me
(Just run away)
Run away with me
(With me)
(Oh yeah yeah)
Every single minute
I'll be your hero, I'm winning
When the lights go out
Run away with me
Run away with me

Run away with me
Run away with me

Run away with me

Run away with me
