"Run" as written by Robin Hannibal Moelsted Braun and Jessica Lee Hansell....
Why do you run why do you hide oh don't you know I
Just, just want to be with you, to be with you

Looking down from above as you watch TV
Wondering why, oh you're ignoring me
Do you remember, remember when I came to you
And you loved me
And I'm waiting for you
And I'm waiting for you

Why do you run, why do you hide oh, don't you know I
Just, just want to be with you, to be with you
Hey, why do you run, why do you hide oh, don't you know
I just, just want to be with you, to be with you...

Whatever happened to the love, the love you had for me
When you first came to me
Don't you know that I died, died so I could be with you
Forever
And I'm waiting for you
And I'm waiting for you

Why do you run, why do you hide oh, don't you know I
Just, just want to be with you, to be with you
Hey, why do you run, why do you hide oh, don't you know
I just, just want to be with you, to be with you...

Find a place of solitude, and I'll speak to you
As you pray to me
Don't you know I'm waiting here, waiting for you to
Read and hear my words
I'm waiting here missing the time the times we shared
Oh, please come to me

Why do you run why do you hide oh don't you know I
Just, just want to be with you, to be with you
Hey, why do you run why do you hide oh don't you know
I just, just want to be with you, to be with you

    General Commento my goodness!! I cannot believe anyone hasn't commented on this song yet!!! What's wrong with you people???!?? I just heard this song yesterday for the first time and I sit here in complete awe. This is such a talented band and I cannot believe that no one has really heard of them...(yet). I feel this song cause not only is the music amazingly beautiful, not only because I love the violin, but seriously now. Listen to the song and then read the lyrics...I am completely blown away. "Find a place of solitude, and I'll speak to you
    As you pray to me.
    Don't you know I'm waiting here, waiting for you to
    read and hear my words
    I'm waiting here missing the time the times we shared
    oh, please come to me"
    this bridge is awesome. ahhh, I can't say enough about it. God waits for us and He justs wants to be with us but we are always so busy-too busy to stop and find quiet time or go on a holy walk and just be in His presence. Oh my gosh people. I'm sorry for freakin out but this song really touched my heart because I am soo guilty of forgetting to pray sometimes and this and that. We need to spend time with Our Lord. It's so important guys.
    Serenity Always,
    me

    General CommentWhen I first heard it... I imagined God up above...and a man. The man was kiding from God...may have had something going on in his life, but none the less, hiding from God. All God wanted to do is Love and help...

    General CommentI love this song! I saw them in concert when they were opening for Audio Adrenaline, before that concert i had never heard of them, but they were so amazing! And they still are! I heard that song for the first time at that concert and i was so awestruck! I was like "Why DO i run?" And the line that says "wondering why you're ignoring me" gets me every time. I'm totally guilty of that. When i watch TV or play video games, i'm not thinking of him, i'm kind of like "Go away, i'm trying to watch something" i don't know why i do this because he's so compassionate, and loving and is just amazing to me, who would ever want to ignore that?

    General CommentThe lyrics to this song just blew me away. Kutless is just amazing for being able to stand up there and sing about God and their beliefs. Not everyone can do that. Besides they have amazing vocal and instrumentals and it SOUNDS good, unlike alot of worship music out there, that have amazing and deep lyrics but no sound to go with it.

    General CommentYeah, I love this song to! This was the first song I heard by Kutless and the lyrics are awsome, they have a clear message about how God wants to be with us, and yet so many times we run away and hide from him.

    General CommentI honestly love this song to death, one of my personal favorites. I honestly don't know why anyone would want to run from the peace and joy that God can bring you through a devoted life to him? I don't know why I run?

    General CommentMan this song brings back memories, the first time I heard it was when I was just about to lose my faith. I'm normally the strong guy who doesn't let out his emotions at all and by the end of this song I was almost crying.
