Day 46: I Run To You

Most of the greatest songs ever sung and written are those that tell a story, and there is no better genre for such than country music.

As a fan of stories, books and novels–and as someone who likes to read and write–I suppose country music really does matches with me.  I don’t see how some people would associate country as for “old” people.  Of course, since we now have Taylor Swift and singers like her who manages to blend country and pop into one, people are starting to put behind the notion that country isn’t that great.

I suppose my love for country music makes my song choices seem biased, but hey, I did say that I’m selecting songs that have meaning.

Today’s song is another country song, and it is from Lady Antebellum.  It’s a song that I found on the Songs for Japan 2-CD compilation and is entitled “I Run To You“.

It’s a pretty upbeat song and the lyrics is just so good.  It really speaks to you, you know, as long as you listen to it with an open mind.   I don’t suppose I need to dissect this song since it’s pretty much self-explanatory.  The question is: who do you run to when the going gets tough and the tough gets going?

Anyways, below are the lyrics to the song.  I hope you guys enjoy listening to this song as much as I did.  Until the next post, dream on; fly on!

I run from pain
I run from prejudice
I run from pessimists
But I run too late
I run my life
Or is it running me
Run from my past
I run too fast
Or too slow it seems
When lies become the truth
That’s when I run to you

This world keeps spinning faster
Into a new disaster so I run to you
I run to you baby
And when it all starts coming undone
Baby you’re the only one I run to
I run to you

We run on fumes
Your life and mine
Like the sands of time
Slippin’ right on through
And our love’s the only truth
That’s why I run to you

This world keeps spinning faster
Into a new disaster so I run to you
I run to you baby
And when it all starts coming undone
Baby you’re the only one I run to
I run to you

This world keeps spinning faster
Into a new disaster so I run to you
I run to you baby
And when it all starts coming undone
Baby you’re the only one I run to
I run to you

There is nothing more that I enjoy doing than reading books and writing. I’m kind of a nerd like that, XD. I have been writing for 7 years and am the author of the YA novel “Winged: The Awakening” and “Winged: The Unraveling”. Also, a YouTuber dealing with video games and gaming.
