    LYRICS:
    Jimmy used to run through the streets at night
    To escape from all the fighting
    He was always told that he wasn’t right
    So he just kept on writing
    Writing to a dad that he wished he’d had
    That he didn’t know he needed he said
    We should run away but today we’ll stay
    And I haven’t seen him since that day now I got
    Jimmy on my mind felt like yesterday but I don’t see him anymore, anymore
    Jimmy he got tired so he couldn’t stay now I don’t see him anymore, anymore
    Nah nah, no no
    I don’t see him anymore
    Nah nah nah
    Jimmy would come over after school sometimes
    And we’d dance around the garden
    He would never talk but when he would try
    It would never come out right and
    One day he had to go when his mum called him home
    And he looked at me a smiled and he said
    We should runaway but today we’ll stay
    And I haven’t seen him since that day
    Now I got
    Jimmy on my mind felt like yesterday but I don’t see him anymore, anymore
    Jimmy he got tired so he couldn’t stay now I don’t see him anymore, now I got
    Jimmy on my mind feels like yesterday but I don’t see him anymore, anymore
    Jimmy he got tired but he couldn’t stay now I don’t see him anymore, anymore
    Nah nah, no no
    I don’t see him anymore
    Nah nah nah
    And I pictured you back in the day when we were nine
    We said that someday we would leave this all behind
    And I pictured you back in the day when we were nine
    We said that someday we would leave this all behind
    Now I got
    Jimmy on my mind felt like yesterday but I don’t see him anymore, anymore
    Jimmy he got tired so he couldn’t stay now I don’t see him anymore, now I got
    Jimmy on my mind feels like yesterday but I don’t see him anymore, anymore
    Jimmy he got tired but he couldn’t stay now I don’t see him anymore, anymore
    Nah nah, no no
    I don’t see him anymore
    Nah nah nah nah
    I don’t see him anymore
    Nah nah nah
    I don’t see him anymore
    Nah nah nah

    I got the feeling that this song is from Jonny's perspective; even when his dad warned him to run away from his feelings, he still wanted to be friends with Jimmy and be close to him, and maybe that went on for a little while, they played and danced together, but Jimmy couldn't scape from what going on in his homelife, and at the end, even with Jonny there for him, his little heart had enough.Jonny kept thinking about him as he grew up ,about the first person he loved, and then Pete came into his life and, well, guess you've heard how the rest of that song goes.

    I can relate to Jimmy so much. I used to wander the streets at 3 AM to get away from my home sitch, and my friend and I have always talked about running away together and starting a new life. I got overwhelmed and ghosted everyone I knew and now she and I don't talk anymore.

    Unexpectedly moving - half the times I listen to this song, it puts a smile on my face...
    😍 Childhood playtime, the innocent dream of running away and having an adventure
    The other half of the time, I well-up uncontrollably...
    😭 The quiet child, trapped in a world where he doesn't fit, desperate to be free, but never gets his chance

    Jimmy and Johnny ran away, but not far because they got tired. Both happy that they didnt have to live with fighting, they fought for a better future . In high school they met Pete, and Johnny professed his love for him. Now I dont see them anymore...

    "Jimmy got tired so he couldn't stay."
    Does that mean he passed away? :(

    • Loretta Tonzing
      Loretta Tonzing 4 days ago

      I think the meaning is obviously family problems but I think jimmy took his life , that's why she doesn't see him anymore and he was probably running from his problems

      He may have taken his own life. I get the image that his plan was to run away, but after he told her that they would stay and went home that night he just couldn't fight that feeling of getting away while he's parents were fighting and possibly him getting abused
