"Run To You" as written by Allan Dennis Rich and Jud J. Friedman....
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
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 (oooh)
I wanna run to you (oooh)
Won't you hold me in your arms
And keep me safe from harm
I want to run to you (oooh)
But if I come to you (oooh)
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
What's the sense of trying hard to find your dreams
Without someone to share it with
Tell me what does it mean?

I wanna run to you (oooh)
I wanna run to you (oooh)
Won't you hold me in your arms
And keep me safe from harm
I want to run to you (oooh)
But if I come to you (oooh)

Tell me, will you stay or will you run away
I need you here
I need you here to wipe away my tears
To kiss away my fears
If you only knew how much

I wanna run to you (oooh)
I wanna run to you (oooh)
Won't you hold me in your arms
And keep me safe from harm
I want to run to you (oooh)
But if I come to you (oooh)
Tell me, will you stay or will you run away

    General CommentTo me this song is the whole Bodyguard movie in a song, Run To You tells how she is lonely, and how Rachel Marron (the actress Whitney plays), is sick of being an actress playing people who have fulfilled controlled life filled with love and people when she comes home, whereas she only has her son.

    General CommentI absolutely love this song!
    And as big as the soundtrack was, I think it's often overshadowed by other great tracks.
    This song is the classic "who can I talk to?" song. The singer is insecure and alone and lonely. And they're asking someone to stay with them and be with them and to not run away like everyone else has.
    Great song. Perfect song.
    This song makes me tear up all of the time. I always think it won't, but it does.
