Joji

Run

in Nectar

LYRIC

[Verse 1]
I fell for your magic, I tasted your skin
And though this is tragic, at least I found the end
I witnessed your madness, you shed light on my sins
And if we share in this sadness, then where have you been?

[Chorus]
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'll 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 (Ooh)
[Verse 2]
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

[Chorus]
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'll 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

[Outro]
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

About "Run"

“Run” is the second single released by Joji after his debut album BALLADS 1, and is the second single off of his sophomore studio album, Nectar.

Like the rest of Joji’s discography, the lyrical content of “Run” has a distinct melancholy tone. The track features Joji in disarray over his feelings for someone who is now in a new relationship. He feels as if he has no choice but to just “run” from his feelings, which is represented in the track’s accompanying music video, which was unveiled 10 hours after the song’s release on February 6, 2020.

Joji consistently uses sad themes in his music, best exemplified by his debut album, BALLADS 1. This song serves perhaps as a change of pace for Joji, as the prestigious producer Justin Parker, known for working with the likes of Rihanna and Lana Del Rey, is enlisted to collaborate with him for the first time.

This track was first teased on January 27, 2020, with a tweet from Joji featuring a short video of lava flowing — Joji later revealed the release date and cover artwork and confirmed track’s title with another tweet.
