Background[]

RunWild

James Maslow co-wrote "Run Wild" with Damon Sharpe and Eric Sanicola, who together have helped write other Big Time Rush songs such as "Elevate" and "Love Me Again", as well as Matt Nyberg, who co-produced the track with Sanicola and Sharpe.[1] "Run Wild" was considered to become the title track for the band's then-unnamed third studio album but lost favor to "24/seven".[2] The song also has two brief appearances in Big Time Rush, in the fourth season episodes "Big Time Break Out" and "Big Time Dreams". In "Big Time Break Out", James attempts to record the song for his solo project. In "Big Time Dreams", the song plays while the band is running from the villains.

Lyrics[]

Run wild and never look back

Break out, get a little loud
Shout it from the rooftops now
Wake up, even if you're down
Yeah we gonna run this town
Don't wait, time is running out
Can you hear it ticking, let the music kick in
Break out, get a little loud
Shout it from the rooftops now

People say play it safe
But I don't want to live that way
Take a chance, change the game
And show 'em that we're not afraid

Run wild and never look back
Never look back, the night is waiting
Stand up and don't shut up
The world is for the taking, taking
Run wild and never look back
Never look back, no hesitating
Stand up and don't shut up
Tonight is what we make it, make it

Earthquake, gotta shake it up
Gonna make the whole world jump
Stop signs, think I've seen enough
I'ma leave 'em in the dust
Right now, breaking down the doors
Can you hear me knockin', get this party rockin'
Earthquake, gotta shake it up
Gonna make the whole world jump

People say play it safe
But I don't want to live that way
Take a chance, change the game
And show 'em that we're not afraid

Run wild and never look back
Never look back, the night is waiting
Stand up and don't shut up
The world is for the taking, taking
Run wild and never look back
Never look back, no hesitating
Stand up and don't shut up
Tonight is what we make it, make it

Run, run, woah
Find the fire deep inside ya
Live your life tonight, tonight

Run wild and never look back
Never look back, the night is waiting
Stand up and don't shut up
The world is for the taking, taking
Run wild and never look back
Never look back, no hesitating
Stand up and don't shut up
Tonight is what we make it, make it

Run wild, run wild
Run wild, run wild
And never look back
