This song was inspired by my time in Hong Kong. I could not believe how image driven the youth culture was - like NZ, but on steroids. I just wanted to scream at so many young people to break the shackles of this image slavery. This is not about not caring about how you look. It's about not being governed by what other people define as 'beautiful', 'acceptable' and 'valued'. It is about connecting with people who value you for what lies beneath the skin. It's about running from the pressure and the lies about conforming and running towards truth.


Run To Me by Evan Rhys

Time has left you standing
In the pouring rain
Caught between the crowd and a lie
You find your feet are moving
But your head doesn’t even know why
Squeeze me just to show me
That I’m not a fake
Whisper words into these ears
Sing a song to make all of these lies

If you can run, run
Run to me
If they won’t run, run
Let them be

Beauty only happens
When you take the time
Ugly comes with one vain glance
Keep your gaze fixed straight ahead
Don’t give them the chance

If you can run, run
Run to me
If they won’t run, run
Let them be
