Running Low Lyrics

Weeks on end, I'm on the road
I start to lose my sense of home
I should've called so many times but I,
I just sat next to my phone

Just know it takes it from me
To end this darling, oh

And I know you'll find someone who

    Basically this song is about how he had to break up with Lauren cuz he sadly had no time while going on tour and taking care of his career, he didnt want to hurt her more later by going to far into their relationship so he decided to break up so that she could find someone better. He did it for only good causes, he didnt want to hurt her too much cause he loved and cared about her.

    This song is about how (hypothetically) he wasn't a good boyfriend, wasn't there for her, because he was on tour.This is a (hypothetical) breakup song saying "Hey, I'm sorry, this is too much. I don't want to keep doing this to you. I'm sorry but I have to leave you."

    He didn't have enough time for Lauren when he was on tour, so here he is telling her to find someone else so that she can be happy and he can also have time to focus on his own career. He didn't want to hurt her, but he just didn't have enough time for her. He is hurt about ending their relationship, but he has to choose either Lauren or his career.

    It means he is done for good and doesn't want them together ever again and telling her to find someone else.

    I think this is just abt a guy that is that enough time for his girl and doesn't want her to be hurt in the long run so he tries to end things between them.

    The song is about him not having enough time while on tour for his girlfriend and when he tries to make time to call and text her his battery (phone and time) are low so he is telling her he has to go and find someone better who has time bc he doesn't want to hurt her.

    The song is about a guy who thinks he's not giving enough time for his girlfriend. He's telling her to break up with him and find someone else, someome who can give enough time for her.
