Abstractions About the Lyrics
The song shows a man who used to run all his life. He has all the reasons to do such. But the moment he fell deeply in love with someone, he thought that he finally found what he’s looking for. All of those that kept him on the go paused for a while. Suddenly, everything around him including his restless heart had slowed down.
With the love that he and his partner have started, he realized that he’s running out of reasons to run.
Not being in a hurry, he wants to treasure each moment spent with his significant other. Also, the narrator stated that he no longer need to chase down the setting sun since he has finally found where he is supposed to be – beside the love of his life.
