Lifehouse – Runaways (audio-only video)

“No past or mixed emotions.”

One For The Pain was good, but Runaways is the song that made me sit up and take notice. And that’s saying something, because this track comes right after Flight, and I was totally blown away by Flight when I first heard it. Reminiscent of Coldplay’s Midnight off their latest studio album Ghost Stories, Lifehouse made the sound their own by turning it into a full rock song: layered, textured and airy — the last adjective meaning it would be quite suitable for open-air concerts. Should I have said breezy? Yes, maybe I should have. While Midnight is soothing, this one is breezy — both winners in my book.
