    on the run

    Hello!

    What does “on the run” mean in this lyrics?

    I found three definitions of this phrase in Dictionary.com, but it seems none of these definitions fit this lyrics. Could you have a look for me? Thank you!

    174. on the run: a. moving quickly; hurrying about. b. while running or in a hurry. c. escaping or hiding from the police.

    This song is called "As Long As Long You Love me" from Backstreet Boys, you can see the full lyrics here, http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/backstreetboys/aslongasyouloveme.html And the verse I offer is the third one.


    Every little thing that you have said and done
    Feels like it's deep within me
    Doesn't really matter if you're on the run
    It seems like we're meant to be

    Re: on the run

    Let's look at two stanzas:
    I don't care who you are
    Where you're from
    What you did
    As long as you love me
    Who you are
    Where you're from
    Don't care what you did
    As long as you love me

    Every little thing that you have said and done
    Feels like it's deep within me
    Doesn't really matter if you're on the run
    It seems like we're meant to be


    The person is 'on the run' from their past life -'what you did': what happened back there that this person probably wants to forget about.
