"Runaway" from Scott Darlow is a song that tells an incredible story as Scott explained to Australian Country Radio.
“'Runaway' is a song I wrote about a 14-year-old boy I met after a school performance in Melbourne. His mum and dad were living in Iraq and married at 18 and 19. They fell pregnant straight away, and shortly after, things changed politically where they were living and they were in danger and had to get out. So they sold all their possessions to fund their escape.
They sold everything including their shoes, and walked barefoot, pregnant and 18 from Iraq to Turkey, eating what they could find along the way, eventually finding their way to Australia via a refugee camp. This song is about courage, survival, perspective and love.”
