Play “No Distance Left to Run” by Blur on repeat, over and over. Blur was the band you knew with that video with people magically being thrown against walls.* Yes, apparently they are capable of being sad, very sad.
In my experience, any time someone mentions they’ve got no distance left to run, it normally means one of two things:
1) It’s a cry for attention. I used to fall for this sort of thing. I’d call the girl or guy on the phone and make sure they’re ok. They’d then complain and explain how depressed they are about not getting ice cream or something. Blah Blah Blah. Nowadays, when someone says they’ve got no distance left to run, I just tell them to stop running. Case Closed. Nine times out of ten it’s just a cry for attention. I don’t play that game anymore. Granted, there’s that faint one out of ten chance it really is…
2) A cry for help. In which case, if you don’t actually hear him or her out, he/she might just jump off a bridge. If that happens, then no matter what anyone says, it really is YOUR fault. But honestly, play the odds. Call their bluff and roll the dice. You’ll be happy you did, unless the person kills himself, in which case you won’t be.
*= If you were wondering, that song with that video with people being thrown against walls is “Song 2”. Check it out. It was part of the whole British Music Invasion in the mid-90s.
