Run To You

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: COMPARISONS

Ooooh – Jim ! I did not know where to start. In the end I settled on two songs with exactly the same title but from different artists, two huge music stars. I like them both, and I don’t have much to say in comparing them both.

The title of both songs is “Run To You”. The first track is from Bryan Adams and second from Whitney Huston. I was surprised to find that neither of these songs topped the charts (although Adams reached the top of the US Rock Charts with his track). Yet they received so much radio play over here in the UK. I remember hearing them many many times when I was a child. I loved both songs.

Which “Run To You” do you prefer?

She says her love for me could never die
But that’d change if she ever found out about you and I

Oh – but her love is cold
It wouldn’t hurt her if she didn’t know, ’cause…

When it gets too much
I need to feel your touch

I’m gonna run to you
I’m gonna run to you
Cause when the feeling’s right I’m gonna run all night
I’m gonna run to you
She’s got a heart of gold she’d never let me down
But you’re the one that always turns me on
You keep me comin’ ’round

I know her love is true
But it’s so damn easy makin’ love to you

I got my mind made up
I need to feel your touch

I’m gonna run to you
Yeah! – I’m gonna run to you
Cause when the feeling’s right I’m gonna stay all night
I’m gonna run to you

Yeah! – I’m gonna run to you
Oh when the feeling’s right I’m gonna run all night
I’m gonna run to you

Oh when the feeling’s right now

Oh! – I’m gonna run to you
Yeah! – I’m gonna run to you
Cause when the feeling’s right I’m gonna stay all night
I’m gonna run to you

Oh! – I’m gonna run to you
Yeah! When the feeling’s right I’m gonna stay all night
Oh when the feeling’s right now

Oh yeah when the feeling’s right now
I’m gonna run to you
Oh, oh

Yeah, I’m gonna run to you
Yeah, I’m gonna
Oh, I’m gonna run to you, run to you
Oh, I’m gonna run to you
Oh
Oh, I’m gonna run now

Ooh, I know that when you look at me
There’s so much that you just don’t see
But if you would only take the time
I know in my heart you’d find
Oh, a girl, who’s scared sometimes
Who isn’t always strong
Can’t you see the hurt in me?
I feel so all alone

I wanna run to you
I wanna run to you
Won’t you hold me in your arms?
And keep me safe from harm
I wanna run to you
But if I come to you
Tell me, will you stay
Or will you run away?

Each day, each day I play the role
Of someone always in control
But at night, I come home and turn the key
There’s nobody there, no one cares for me
Oh woah, what’s the sense
Of trying hard to find your dreams?
Without someone to share them with
Tell me, what does it mean?

I wanna run to you
I wanna run to you
Won’t you hold me in your arms?
And keep me safe from harm
I wanna run to you
But if I come to you
Tell me, will you stay
Or will you run away?
Run away

No, I need you here
I need you here to wipe away my tears
To kiss away my fears
No, if you only knew
How much I wanna run to you
Know I wanna run to you
Won’t you hold me in your arms?
And keep me safe from harm
I wanna run to you
But if I come to you
Tell me, will you stay
Or will you run away?
