Run Boy Run — Woodkid

Woodkid’s infectious ‘Run Boy Run’ tells the story of a boy who is different from the other kids–and what kinky person can’t relate to that?–who is trying to find a safe place until he can get away to be his own person.

Musically, there’s a rushing beat, urging the listener on, to get away. Then a melodic break, hopeful for a future and being able to be yourself, whomever that may be.

‘Run Boy Run’

by Ambroise Willaume, Yoann Lemoine

Run boy run! This world is not made for you
Run boy run! They’re trying to catch you
Run boy run! Running is a victory
Run boy run! Beauty lays behind the hills

Run boy run! The sun will be guiding you
Run boy run! They’re dying to stop you
Run boy run! This race is a prophecy
Run boy run! Break out from society

Tomorrow is another day
And you won’t have to hide away
You’ll be a man, boy!
But for now it’s time to run, it’s time to run!

Run boy run! This ride is a journey to
Run boy run! The secret inside of you
Run boy run! This race is a prophecy
Run boy run! And disappear in the trees

Tomorrow is another day
And you won’t have to hide away
You’ll be a man, boy!
But for now it’s time to run, it’s time to run!

Tomorrow is another day
And when the night fades away
You’ll be a man, boy!
But for now it’s time to run, it’s time to run!
