Behind the Songs With Runaway City…
Drummer Chris Burrow shares the inspiration behind “Daybreak,” from Runaway City’s June 22, 2010, debut release, Armored Heart:

“At the time we wrote this song, a friend of ours was wandering down the wrong path and struggling with making bad choices. The lyrics are a plea to him to wake up and come back to the place he needed to be. It’s a great metaphor for God’s guidance. Every time we mess up, God is that beacon directing us back home.” Chris Burrow
