Better Run
Nasty Cherry Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

We could chill under the warmest covers
And be nothing but the coldest lovers
All my blood is turnin′ blue, it's stopped rushin′
Are you okay?

The closer we get, the more I get scared for you
The more I confess, the more I get scared for you
I think you should run, run away from my heart
I'll break you up, stop blaming yourself
You gave enough, but I'm occupied
Better run, better run

Introduce you to my darkest demons
The kind you say you want but don′t really mean it
When the truth comes out and you really see me
It′ll be too late

The closer we get, the more I get scared for you
The more I confess, the more I get scared for you

I think you should run, run away from my heart
I'll break you up, stop blaming yourself
You gave enough, but I′m occupied
Better run, better run

Would you run away from me?
You better run
Would you run away from me?

Would you walk away
If you could see my mind?
Would you run that far
If you could see inside my heart?

I think you should run, run away from my heart
I'll break you up, stop blaming yourself
You gave enough, but I′m occupied
Better run, better run

I think you should run, run away from my heart
I'll break you up, stop blaming yourself
You gave enough, but I′m occupied
Better run, better run

Would you run away from me?




Would you run away from me?
You better run

Overall Meaning

The verses of Nasty Cherry's song Better Run describe the singer's emotional turmoil regarding a romantic relationship. She expresses her fear of hurting her partner and warns them to distance themselves before she causes any damage. The lines "We could chill under the warmest covers, And be nothing but the coldest lovers" suggest that while their physical connection might be strong, emotionally, they are incompatible. The metaphorical use of "blood turning blue" symbolizes her emotional numbness and inability to feel the warmth and vulnerability required for true intimacy. She asks, "Are you okay?" implying that she recognizes the potential impact of her emotional distance on her partner's well-being.


The chorus "I think you should run, run away from my heart, I'll break you up, stop blaming yourself" reinforces the idea that the singer feels she is not equipped to handle a relationship and does not want to hurt her partner. She asks them to "run away" as a precautionary measure, to avoid any pain that might arise from their relationship. This conflict is further emphasized in the line "Introduce you to my darkest demons, The kind you say you want but don't really mean it," suggesting that while her partner may claim to be accepting of her flaws, there is an underlying lack of understanding that may cause further trouble. The lines "When the truth comes out and you really see me, It'll be too late" further implies that her partner may not truly understand her, and this will lead to disappointment.


In summary, Nasty Cherry's song Better Run is a raw and honest expression of internal conflict in a romantic relationship. The lyrics paint a picture of one partner struggling with their own emotional issues, and ultimately urging their lover to leave before they end up causing any pain.

I believe it would be best for you to leave me and our relationship, as I am not capable of providing the emotional connection you need.


I'll break you up, stop blaming yourself
I know that if our relationship fails, you might blame yourself. But it's not your fault; it's my emotional unavailability that's the problem.

It'll be too late
If I reveal the worst parts of myself to you and you leave, it will be too late for me to change your mind and save our relationship.

@dogteethuglyboysx6338

Can we also take a moment to admit our hearts weren’t prepared for blonde Gabi!!!!!

@NiecyEnMediasRes

I’m saying like 😩

@saselc1

Seriously obsessed!

@israelrios997

Okay. But Georgia has grown so much as a bassist. Holy shit! Nastyyyyy!!! Love it!

@trianna4975

I love everything about this, the aesthetics , the lyrics, Gabi's vocals... Such a vibe and makes me even more excited for new music!

@mateofinessi1973

Stop asking for the other members, this is their only MV in which they don't appear and it's because they clearly wanted the music video to show a love story between two people. Gabbie did an amazing job, and so did Debbie, Georgia and Chloe behind the scenes. Amazing song and EP, keep it up!

@JackMSpreaker

Don't forget about corona too haha

@purexisdelirium6895
