Run Girl

My song “Run Girl” was the first song to come together with a beat maker. It’s also the first true EDM-track I’ve done.

My totally home made music video for “Run Girl”

Lyrics

VERSE:
You’ve been seeing this love unfold
Through the eyes of a stranger
You’ve been watching his heart turn cold
You’ve been loving the danger

PRE-CHORUS:
You’d better run girl
It’s not the end of the world
To never say his name again
You’d better run girl
It’s not the end of the world
To never see his face again

CHORUS:
‘Cos you gotta get up and get out of these love chains
You better shake ’em off
You gotta get up and get out of these love chains
Shake shake ’em off

CHANGE:
You’ve been watching this love go under
Don’t let it drag you down

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS

REPEAT CHORUS

(musical break)

BREAK:
You’ve been seeing this love unfold
Through the eyes of a stranger

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS

REPEAT CHORUS

The Story Behind The Song

How Did The Song Come About?

At the time, I was in between jobs and decided to spend 31 days working on my music. I blogged about it on a few platforms. About midway through, I was checking out these beat stores – online shops from producers. They mostly offered hip hop tracks and trap beats back then, but I found a few hidden pop-dance and r&b tracks. Among them, was this beat which became “Run Girl”.

Inspiration

I don’t recall having a specific song as inspiration, but I knew I wanted to double the vocals to get a particular sound. My goal was to turn it into a really nice EDM track.

What’s The Song About?

It’s kind of a warning to yourself. Sometimes, you see a relationship not work out and you still want to hold on to it. This is like holding up a mirror and reminding yourself that it’s okay to walk away. Or run away, in this case.

What About The Video?

It wasn’t my intention to make a video for it, but one day, I had such a cool light coming through the blinder. That set the idea off to just start filming for as long as the light allowed it. It’s such a home made video, but it’s always nice to put something visual to the songs for YouTube. Beats uploading it as an audio video there.

Release

The song was released to streaming services world wide in September 2014. It was pulled in 2018, because the song is part of the upcoming album, “Looking Back Then Moving On”. All vocals have been re-recorded for the album. Some minor changes have been made to it. So, it will be back on the streaming services.
