Run On Love - Tove Lo and Lucas Nord



The Experience: We can run on love for a while... You are my quick fix. I can feel it fade away... You gave up on being loved, and settled for being used...



Music video: Tove Lo and boyfriend alternate between sharing - music, food, bed - and harassing one another. In the end, the whole relationship is a failure: the watch that Tove Lo gives him at the beginning ends up abandoned on the sidewalk.

The Meaning of Run On Love: Run On Love is an anthem to love as a quick fix that you can run on until it fades away. Life like that is one fix after another... and begs the question: why? Why do that over and over? The music is drifts between happy go lucky and nostalgic, but never matches the profound failure that lurks behind the lyrics - I had one mission but I committed treason... I caved... trapped... it dies again... we fall... quick fix... I can feel it fade away... I always go back to you. Using others ends trapped in endless abuse.

Ask yourself: Are you content with an endless series of failures?

LYRICS:

I had one mission
But I committed treason
I can't believe I caved for you
So I am now a failure
Everything I gave ya
Let's elope and live like you

Trapped inside each other
We don't even bother
Naive, say it's a beautiful thing
Hope we live forever
Doesn't sound too clever
Works as my protective wing

We can run on love for a while
We can run on love for a while
We can run on love 'til it dies
'Til it dies again

We can run on love for a while
We can run on love for a while
We can run on love 'til it dies
'Til it dies again

And together we fall

I had one mission
But I committed treason
Promised I would stay away
From you and your bad tricks
You are my quick fix
I can feel it fade away

Suddenly the day came
We started to place blame
Driving us right out of our heads
You say it's my error
I say look in the mirror
The reason why our flame is dead

We can run on love for a while
We can run on love for a while
We can run on love 'til it dies
'Til it dies again

We can run on love for a while
We can run on love for a while
We can run on love for a while
'Til it dies

I always go back to you
I always go back
I always go back to you
I always go back
I always go back to you
I always go back
I always go back to you

Together we fall
