David Archuleta ~ “Don’t Run Away” Live

Posted by djafan on Monday, April 13, 2015

dont run away 1

All drawings by Kylie Malchus

While David was away on his mission he released two albums; “No Matter How Far” and “Begin”.  From “No Matter How Far”, we have heard Wait, Everything And More, and Love Don’t Hate performed  live.  I’ve always wondered if I would have the opportunity someday to hear some of the others live too.  For example, Nothing Else Better To Do, Tell Me, Heart Falls Out, Notice Me and Don’t Run Away.  Don’t Run Away being at the top of my list.

dont run away

What a surprise when he performed it live at Rootstech.  David’s simple introduction, “I’ve never sung this next song live before, but here we go”.  I recognized it immediately and just couldn’t believe it.  It’s the performance I watch the most from that day.  It’s David singing from his soul, the passion and cry in his voice reaching out to all.

 

A music video was also released while he was away which had a million views.  A simple but beautiful sequence of drawings by Kylie Malchus fit the song perfectly.  I was saddened that she wasn’t able to get into the conference hall at Rootstech especially since little did she know that “Don’t Run Away” was going to be performed live.

 It currently has 943,801  views!

Don’t Run Away Lyrics

When something’s wrong
And too much to handle
Try to find some peace of mind
Let it go.
Wait a minute, you know this road
It’s gonna leave you on overload, yeah
‘Cause somebody cares, yeah

I can see you hurting (turn around)
I will be right there
Don’t run away, don’t run away, don’t run away
When I reach out to you, look around
I will be right here
Don’t run away, don’t run away, don’t run away
Tonight

Don’t make a sound
I’ll be your voice
You don’t need to be afraid
Anymore
I’ll shine a light out in the dark
Guide you here no matter how far

Oh, yeah
‘Cause somebody cares, oh yeah

I can see you hurting, (turn around)
I will be right there
Don’t run away, don’t run away, don’t run away
When I reach out to you, look around
I will be right here
Don’t run away, don’t run away, don’t run away

Open up, let it all out tonight, yeah
Open up, and everything will be alright

I can see you hurting, (turn around)
I will be right there
Don’t run away, don’t run away, don’t run away
When I reach out to you, look around
I will be right here
Don’t run away, don’t run away, don’t run away

Turn around, don’t run away, don’t run away
I will be right here, oh
Tonight, tonight

dont run away 2

    It’s my fav from that day also, Dfafan.
    I just love it.
    It was a revelation.

    That is why I say that DA will hear his own music for the first time – when he performs it. It is going to be amazing for more than just the audience. ^_^

    Bluesky, You are so right, I didn’t think of that. First time for him and us, how exciting! Did you notice at the end how it took him a few seconds to get back? November can’t come soon enough.

    Can you elaborate on the revelation?

    When David sang this song at RootsTech he had the audience under a spell. I don’t think I breathed for about 4 minutes. When he got to the away, away, aways…. dang, I nearly passed out. This ‘old’ song suddenly had a rebirth and it was beautiful. David delivered this in true David fashion… a quirky little smile… catch the notes of the tune… go into the zone… deliver your soul with the words and notes of the song… end the song… slowly come out of the zone… another beautiful smile that says, ‘did you feel that?’… yes, David, we felt that!! We. felt. that!

    Thanks for bringing this song back into the light, dja. ♥♥

    Bluesky… a revelation?

    One of my favorite songs by David and when he sang it on Rootstech it was even better than the recording. Especially when he got to the away,away, away…I agree Tawna! He sure has a way with words, smiles and humming! It was a shame that Kylie didn’t get in. She should have been part of it. Her drawings for the video was so perfect.

    Ahh, November…..those concerts will be so great! How can I be so lucky?? 🙂

    Hope to hear David sing all the songs from “No Matter How Far”, too! But the way he does his signature run on the word “awaaaaaaaay” in “Don’t Run Awaaaaaay” takes my breath away!

    Don’t Run Away is one of my two faves from that album. I go to that one and HFO first, always. 🙂

    It’s not my fave from RootsTech, I liked Mirrors and Nunca Pense (love that voice in Spanish!) just a little better. David’s live performance of Don’t Run Away took a little getting used to for me because of the change ups. But once I did, I loved it! It’s still number three, if you can even number them when they’re soooo close but I really love all three and, like Bebe, I hope we get to hear live performances of all those songs. 🙂

    Yes Tawna, that is what I’m talking about!!! I felt it and I wasn’t even there!

    Jans,

    “Especially when he got to the away,away, away”

    Away Away Away, loved that.

    Bebe,

    “awaaaaaaaay” in “Don’t Run Awaaaaaay” takes my breath away”

    I know I kept talking about Don’t Run Away to you and just had to highlight it 🙂

    MT,

    “if you can even number them when they’re soooo close but I really love all three”

    I number them, renumber them several times while they all take at turn at #1 lol.

    24 hours until David. Yayy!

    Dja, I always enjoy your positive attitude towards everything David. Appreciate all your digging to bring us stats and quotes.

    Tawna, thanks for reminding us of that beautiful time spent at Rootstech. Your writing of David’s performance was so perfect. Yep, you get him. And like Bebe says, Away, away, away away goes our breathing capabilities

    MT, impossible for me to rank those songs. And how about the Jump performance?

    Jan, have you marked your calendar for 11/6 & 11/7? Don’t want to forget.

    Dayzee and I just spoke and we have a plan in place. ^_^

    You may wonder why we need a plan? Well, the weather here has been wonderful: high 60’s for weeks. But not today. Today we have had winds up to 80+ miles per hour, cars getting blown around, big accidents on the free-way. Dust storms to where drivers could not see….And now snow. Lots of it!!!

    And.. it is supposed to continue through tomorrow. Whew. The venue is a good 45 to 60 minutes away by freeway, (depending on traffic) and we will be going at the beginning of rush hour.

    So Dayzee has determined that we should go early. I can’t figure out why!? (ha, ha!) We may have to wait a while (it begins at 7.30) but I know how to pack granola bars!!

    I don’t have a phone with a good camera. I do not know their rules for cameras, etc.
