The Oracle on I Ran Away
June 7, 2011 - submitted by Lisa, United States of America
Q. Hey this might be an impossible thing to ask of you, but could you please please please ask the band or someone who can speak with them if they would be willing to play I Ran Away immediately after they play Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall in their live setlist? The drums at the end of ETIAW reminded me of I Ran Away, so I figured that unless there was some hidden reason why they can't or are unwilling to play the song, that they could play it (using the drums outro at the end of ETIAW as an intro to I Ran Away.That might be hard to do if the guitars aren't tuned right though.
Please please try to do this, even if it seems impossible or out of place (since they're debuting new music not old). It would be appropriate to play the song because it would be a new thing, since they have NEVER played it live.
Thanks to the infinitum power!
The Oracle replies:
Hmm, that is never going to happen Lisa. I know what you're saying, it's a slightly similar drum pattern granted but way slower. ETIAW is a pacey, upbeat song and is the perfect set closer, there is no way that I Ran Away would fit straight after as it would be an energy stealer if I'm honest.
They're playing some old tunes as well as new but I Ran Away isn't a likely choice. I know fans have been almost campaigning to hear this song live since 2008 and maybe one day... but not one in the very near future. I'd put money on it.
(One, two, three... Will) I ran away from you That's all I ever do And though I started here I ran away from you I'm gonna come on in And see it through I ran away from you That's all I ever do And when I heard you call to Come back to me And though I should stay I don't have the stomach to Everyone I know Says I'm a fool to mess with you Everyone I know Says it's a stupid thing to do I have your love on call And yet my day is not so full There might be nothing left to do So I ran away from you I'm gonna come on in My eyes are closed I can feel it there The sun's so close I'm gonna come on out And burn the sky A star arose in my own cage I'm stuck in line And in a cage Just a single star I sing for Everyone I know Says I'm a fool to mess with you Everyone I know Says it's a stupid thing to do I have your love on call And yet my day is not so full And I did not know what to do And so I ran away from you
