Songfacts®:

  • The follow up to OneRepublic's "Counting Stars" single was a brand new track that didn't feature on their Native album. Speaking to Capital FM, frontman Ryan Tedder said: "The very short back story on the song was when we were working on Native I originally thought this was going to be the first single and it's called 'Love Runs Out' and I wanted it to be the first single, a few of us in the band did, but I could not finish the chorus. And you can't have a song without a chorus."

    "It took me about a year," he added. "We finished it in Paris."
  • The video was directed by Sophie Muller. The British director has also worked on music videos for Sade, Björk and Katy B.
