To every girl that I meet here, this is what I'll say

Overall Meaning

In "Runaway Baby," Bruno Mars sings about the player lifestyle, warning a woman to run away from him before he breaks her heart. He starts the song by noticing a "pretty thing" who he plans on holding onto at the end of the night. While he tells her that he loves her, he also admits that he'll never stick around, telling each girl he meets that they better run away from him because he's a "rolling stone."


Throughout the song, Mars encourages the woman to run away from him before he puts his "spell" on her. He reiterates that she'll end up alone if she gets too close to him. Despite all of this, the chorus of the song is upbeat and catchy, experimenting with a variety of instruments to create a throwback sound.


The song's message is somewhat controversial, but it showcases Bruno Mars's range as an artist. He's able to take a darker subject matter and pair it with a fun and energetic melody that's sure to get people dancing.


Line by Line Meaning

Well looky here looky here ah what do we have?
I see someone attractive, let me try to seduce them


Another pretty thing ready for me to grab
There's always someone new to flirt with


But little does she know that I'm a wolf in sheep's clothing
I pretend to be someone trustworthy, but I'm not


'Cause at the end of the night it is her I'll be holding
I'll use my charm to get what I want from her


I love you so
I'll say whatever it takes to get her to like me


That's what you'll say
She'll believe my lies and think I really care


You'll tell me baby, baby please don't go away
She'll beg me to stay with her


But when I play, I never stay
I'll never commit to just one woman


To every girl that I meet here, this is what I'll say
I say the same things to every girl to get them to like me


Run run runaway, runaway baby
You should leave now before I hurt you


Before I put my spell on you
Before I manipulate you into falling for me


You better get get getaway, getaway darling
You need to escape from me before it's too late


'Cause everything you heard is true
I'm as bad as people say I am


You poor little heart will end up alone
I'll break your heart and move on to the next girl


'Cause lord knows I'm a rolling stone
I can't be tied down to just one person


So you better run run runaway, runaway baby
You need to run away from me as fast as you can
