"Whenever I Run" as written by Keith Lionel Urban, Shelly Peiken and John M. Shanks....
I've seen that darkness on the edge of town
The sun come up and the rain fall down
And I've been a fool, yeah I've been around

And when the world got too much for me
I took off and left a memory
Thinking I'd find something better for me somehow
Oh but now

[Chorus]
Whenever I run
Instead of running into the blue
I follow my heart
And there in your arms
Is where I find the love I need
And the best is yet to come
Baby you're the one I run to

I used to quit when it got too tough
Throw in my cards when I was down on my luck
But baby you mean too much to me
So now

[Chorus]

I never could stay in one place too long
I never could stand that still
Ah but you changed so much in me
And now I know I will

I'm gonna stay where the love is right
I'm so tired of being a bird in flight
Good love takes work
Ah but that's alright
That's alright

[Chorus]

Instead of running into the blue
I follow my heart
And there in your arms
That's where I find the love I need
And the best is yet to come
Baby you're the one I run to
The one I run to
The one I run to

    General CommentThis is my all-time favorite Keith Urban song. I imagine this as how love will be. You find that one person who makes you turn your back on all the bad to be with the good. It will definitely be my wedding song. I love this song so much.
