Take it on the run- REO speedwagon Report Abuse
the last thing to do is listen to songs that remind you of the heartbreak you are going through. This song is great for that, your heartbroken and vulnerable but you know that you never want that again. never want that pain again, especially from the same person. this is song is pretty much saying if your doing it, go and never look back because i wont be there.

Simon's song is strikingly original with lyrics like "She said it grieves me so to see you in such pain I wish there was something I could do to make you smile again."
