"Run To You" as written by Desmond Child, Pauli Rantasalmi and Lauri Johannes Yloenen....
Tomorrow's taking me away from you
Like a jealous lover
Kiss me one last time
Before I go down this broken road I follow
You will leave me torn
And sting me like
A thorn from a dying rose
The saddest scent of you will cling to me
I know

I will run to you
When my journey's over
Wait for me
Keep our love alive
I will dream of you
Till I reach the sun
Then I'll turn around and run
To you

If I stay with you and linger here
Another moment
I will fade into the scenery
You wouldn't even see me
I've got nothing left to offer you
It's not that I don't care
All I ask is that you think of me
I swear


I hate to see you cry
The way you look away
Makes me wanna die

    Song MeaningThis song is quite simply about taking a break in a relationship in the promise that you will return to them because you will always have feelings for them.

    He is leaving, metaphorically or not, but will return when the journey is over - perhaps the journey is discovering what he really wants or maybe it's giving himself some time to think.

    "If I stay with you and linger here another moment
    I would fade into the scenery; you wouldn't even see me
    I've got nothing left to offer you, it's not that I don't care..."
    He's basically saying that the novelty of the relationship has worn off and he feels invisible to his other half, as she's more preoccupied with other things. He feels as if there isn't a point in staying where he's not really needed at that moment.

    "Wait for me, keep our love alive"
    He still loves her and wants to be with her but they both need some time and space.
    He doesn't want her to meet anyone else while he is away.

    General CommentI get the feeling that this song is about Finland. Not about a person, but his native country that he loves and desires.

    General CommentI believe it's a song about a woman waiting for a man to arrive. He has both the beauty and cover of darkness with which to greet a tiny porch complete with the sound of owls and a stuttering woman...all to make it do-able. He really just needs to bring a good book, a smile, and some wit 'cause she already has the wine. She sings (off key, of course) "Put one foot in front of the other."...'cause once you're there, all the worry disappears. (Does that rhyme? Ah, close enough:) GOOD SONG.
