Ready To run Lyrics

There's a lightning in your eyes, I can't deny
Then there's me inside a sinking boat running out of time
Without you I'll never make it out alive
But I know, yes I know, we'll be alright

There's a devil in your smile,...

    This song reminds me of an ex-boyfriend I broke up with to move to the city. It’s somewhat of an apology, they can’t seem to leave the girl behind. They regret the loneliness that comes from the city and being away from the girl and they’re ready to break free from that life and get back together because they’re better that way.

    I personally think this song is similar to a story in the bible. There was a city called jarecho where all the sinners lived. There was a man and his wife who were not sinners. An angel came and told them he would destroy the city and the had to RUN. And he said to not look back or else they would tun into sand, sadly his wife couldn't resist and died. It makes total spence to the lyrics saying, "This time I'm ready to run." (The couple had many opportunities to leave jarecho, but didn't) "Escape from the city, and follow the sun." The sun to us moves forward, also meaning not to look back. "I don't want to be left in the dark of the night" They're basically saying they want to leave so they're not left in the dark with everyone else. So my theory cones to an end, I think it ties exactly to the bible story and that was 1d's intention.

    To me this song is both an apology and an invitation. "This time I'm ready to run" means that there were other times where he let the other down by not being ready.
    "There's a lightning in your eyes, I can't deny
    Then there's me inside a sinking boat running out of time" he sees his hapinees when he looks at his lover's eyes,but his real situation is a "sinkin boat",he feels that if he doesn's try to reach for his hapinees now maybe he'll lose the oportunity.
    To run means to be with his lover and forget all that rest that kept him from doing it.

    I think this is about Louis (louis and Liam did write it) being ready to come out as gay. I think he's writing to harry saying he is ready to come out now.

    I feel like its some type of saying that they will love the boy/girl no matter what and they want to be loved unconditionally.

    This song is talking about being in a place that isn't right for you. It's about one of their girlfriends holding them back from being themselves, or someone that they have always wanted to be. It's time to make up your mind, and, well, run.
