Vampire Weekend - Run

Every dollar counts
And every morning hurts
We mostly work to live
Until we live to work
She said, "You know,
There's nowhere else to go. "
But change in rows
It struck me that the two of us could run.

(Horns)

Worlds away from cars
And all the styles and bars
Where a little bit of competition means so much
And a little bit of change is all your little fingers touch
I said, "You know,
There's nowhere else to go. "
But change in rows
It struck me that the two of us could run.

(Horns)

'Cause honey with you
Is the only honest way to go
And I could take two
But I really couldn't ever know

Honey with you
And a little powered radio
We could try.

So lead my feet away
'Cuz all they do is stay
And I don't think your eyes
Have ever looked surprised.

She said, "You know,
There's no where left to go. "
But we have found
It struck me that the two of us could run

'Cause honey with you
Is the only honest way to go
And I can take two
For I really couldn't ever know

Honey with you
And a little powered radio
We could try.

(Horns)

“Run” is essentially Vampire Weekend’s take on the themes of Drake’s “Over” (“I know way too many people here that I didn’t know last year–who the fuck are y'all?!”), which may be why Drake singles resonate with the band so. It has been described by Ezra Koenig as a deliberate companion piece to “Hannah Hunt,” which also involves a dying relationship, escape, and puns about young money
