Runaway [Part 1] - Roniit



The Experience: I fade away into the unknown... You can lose a lot of things and still survive. Real grief only happens when you lose the person who defined who you were. That tragedy, the loss of who you loved, is the loss of who you are. And it's is the hardest tragedy to survive...



Music video: Roniit is dedicated to her visuals supporting the emotions behind her music. And that's what runaway does perfectly. She's in the dark, wrapped in dark netting, struggling but getting nowhere, surrounded by the shattered glass of her broken life. The video ends by playing that tragic moment backwards: the glass shards collapse back into the center of her chest. Her heart is what shattered. Runaway is part one of a two video series. Through The Night [Part 2] is an attempt to deal with the grief of Runaway [Part 1].

The Meaning of Runaway: Grief. Nothing's here anymore. Roniit dives deep into the sorrow that follows the loss of a loved one. She complains - why don't you runaway with my heart - but in the end there's no hope for a new dawn. They can't ever come back because they didn't leave. They were taken by death. And that's why there's no sunrise after this nightfall. Roniit makes us feel the pain of true loss.

Ask yourself: Having you ever felt the pain of truly losing someone? Is there hope for a new sunrise?

LYRICS:

Nothing's here anymore

I don't feel the light you shine 

My smile hides behind my empty eyes 
I don't feel anymore
 
Waiting for the afterglow
 
I fade away into the unknown 

Runaway 

Runaway with my heart 
Why don't you runaway 
Runaway with my heart 

Draw me in like a flame 
Yielding fast into the undertow 
Sentiments we try to show 
Quiet desperation grows 

I confide in you until I know
 
The road not taken's where I'll go 

Runaway 

Runaway with my heart 
Why don't you runaway 
Runaway with my heart 

I see the setting sun I’m running from my shadow 
I see the waves have come I wait for them to shatter 
I see the setting sun I’m running from my shadow 
I see the waves have come I wait for them to shatter 

Runaway
 
Runaway with my heart 
Why don't you runaway 
Runaway with my heart
