“Run, run, run all you do is run,
But you’ll never run away from yourself.
I know it’s hard but you’ve been there before,
and you know you’re gonna be there again.” – Dear Sergio, Toh Kay
This phrase works, because of the repeated use of the word “run”. The repetition emphasizes the compassionate yet frustrated tone of the song. I also noticed that the use of “I know” and a contrasting “you know” to create the sense familiar rhetoric that helps create the serious mood. I would say that this sentence is also meaningful, because it seems to imply that the friend is too far gone to come back from the mess that they had gotten themselves into.
