About the songEdit
I went to see The Runaways movie earlier this year. And I just kept that idea in my head for a while: these incredibly young teens, going mad in Japan; and the uncomfortable side of that, a 15-year-old on her own in a country like that.
It’s very Beatlesy, I think. We wanted to give the girl the story, make it from her point of view.
Duran Duran are:

At the door blowing a kiss She’s careful not to wake her sister Knowing that she will be missed It feels a little bad girl On the corner engine running Taxi driver sees her coming Chilly in the morning sun She seems a little sad Say goodbye, she’s not afraid of leaving No-one by her side, nothing to hang on Wave goodbye, to everything familiar There’s a world to find Runway runaway just run away Looking back she sees the pattern Hidden princess in the attic Realise this picture that Is more than she will hope for Happy when her heart is jumping Desperately seeking something Trying to be strong enough To choose another road Say goodbye, she’s not afraid of leaving No-one by her side, nothing to hang on Wave goodbye, to everything familiar There’s a world to find Runway runaway just run away Runway runaway just run away Runway runaway… run away Runway runaway just run away
