Run
Joji Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I fell for your magic
I tasted your skin
And though this is tragic
At least I found the end
I witness your madness
You shed light on my sins
And if we share in this sadness
Then where have you been?

I know you're not in love
Like you used to be
Guess I'm not the one
Like you used to think
So you just run
I know that I'm stuck
In this misery
Guess I'm not enough
Like you used to think
So I'll just run

You bathe in your victory
You blew out on my fuse
And if I took on the planet
Will I pay my dues?
Your love was a mystery
Yeah my love is a fool
And I traveled the country
Just to get to you

I know you're not in love
Like you used to be
I guess I'm not the one
Like you used to think
So you just run
I know that I'm stuck
In this misery
Guess I'm not enough
Like you used to think
So I'll just run

(And I traveled the country)
(And I traveled the country)
(Just to get to you)

I know you're not in love




I know you're not in love
I know you're not in love

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Joji's song Run appear to be about a failed relationship. The song opens with the singer admitting to falling for their ex-partner's charm and being physically attracted to them. However, despite this chemistry, the relationship ultimately came to an end, which the singer refers to as "tragic." The person they were with was able to bring to light some of their flaws, but they are not alone in feeling sadness because of the relationship’s ending- they are not the only ones who are mourning its loss.


The singer then goes on to address the fact that their ex-partner is no longer in love with them, as they used to be. This revelation seems to be the driving force behind the chorus, where the singer repeats that the other person just runs away from the situation- they are not willing to confront their feelings. The singer then admits they're stuck in their misery and feeling like they're not enough for their ex-partner.


Towards the end of the song, the singer describes their ex-partner's behavior as arrogant and destructive. They insinuate that their ex is manipulative and that their love is non-genuine, unlike their own. The song closes with the same chorus from before, emphasizing that the other person's love is gone.


Overall, the lyrics to Run are quite melancholic, with themes of heartbreak, disillusionment, and the pain that comes from losing someone you love.


Line by Line Meaning

I fell for your magic
I was taken in by your charm and illusions


I tasted your skin
I got close to you physically


And though this is tragic
Even though it's sad


At least I found the end
At least it's over now


I witness your madness
I see your emotional instability


You shed light on my sins
You made me realize my mistakes


And if we share in this sadness
If we both feel this way


Then where have you been?
Why did you only show up now?


I know you're not in love
I know you don't feel love


Like you used to be
Like you did in the past


Guess I'm not the one
I suppose I am not the person


Like you used to think
Like you believed before


So you just run
So you leave and don't look back


I know that I'm stuck
I am aware that I am trapped


In this misery
In this unhappy state


Guess I'm not enough
I guess I don't meet your expectations


So I'll just run
So I will also leave


You bathe in your victory
You revel in your triumph


You blew out on my fuse
You pushed me over the edge


And if I took on the planet
And if I accomplished great feats


Will I pay my dues?
Would it still be worth it?


Your love was a mystery
Your affection was perplexing


Yeah, my love is a fool
My feelings for you are foolish


And I traveled the country
I went all over to be with you


Just to get to you
To finally reach you
