⁣"Runaway" is a song by Norwegian singer-songwriter Aurora, included in her debut extended play (EP) Running with the Wolves (2015) and debut album All My Demons Greeting Me as a Friend (2016). It was released on 16 February 2015. The song was written by Aurora with Magnus Skylstad and produced by the latter with Odd Martin Skålnes. Musically, "Runaway" is a downtempo folktronica, synth-pop, electronic, and electropop song with influences from Nordic-folk music. Its lyrics, which were inspired by the grief the singer experienced when being far from her family, express escaping reality and realizing the need to return home.

The accompanying music video for the song was directed by Kenny McCracken and was released on 27 February 2015. It shows Aurora walking through various landscapes of Bergen while singing the song. The video effectively captures the essence of the song, which is about longing for a sense of belonging and a home. The narrator is searching for a place to call home and is running away from the pain and sorrows that she experiences. The chorus reflects upon this, with "Take me home/ Where I belong/ I got no other place to go."
