“Running Towards a Place” by The Killers
The logical deduction would be that the singer is addressing his significant other in “Running Towards A Place”. And fundamentally, what he is doing is idealizing the notion of the two of them striving towards a edifying existence together. We can say he is convinced that they stand a better chance of overcoming “the sadness of this life” in each other’s embrace. So the verses themselves are based on the vocalist asking the universe, if you will, to give him the wherewithal to be the best partner to this lady. And it can be said the choruses center on him trying to convince her to adopt a likeminded disposition.
Summary: This is fundamentally a love song in which the singer is idealizing him and his partner unifying towards an edifying life.
