"Run Wild" as written by and Bernard (gb 2)/hook Sumner....
Open hearts
Empty spaces
Dusty roads
To distant places
But all the time
When I'm alone
I think of you
And how you've grown

Far and wide
Sweet and simple
Jehovah knows
That I've been sinful

But if Jesus comes to take your hand
I won't let go, I won't let go

I'm not cruel
And you're not evil
And we're not like
All those stupid people
Who can't decide
Which book to read
Unless the paper
Sows the seed

You're the kind of person
That I've always wanted to be with
Well you're really cool
And you always say the right things to me
But now I'll tell you something
For my heart beats for you deep inside
You'll never be a burden
And my love for you will never die
Never die, never die, never die, never die

But if Jesus comes to take your hand
I won't let go, I won't let go

But if Jesus comes to take your hand
I won't let go, I won't let go

Good times around the corner
Good times around the corner
Good times around the corner
I swear it's getting warmer
Good times around the corner
Good times around the corner
Good times around the corner

I'm gonna live 'til I die
I'm gonna live to get high

    General CommentI can't believe no one has yet commented on this one!

    Run Wild is one of the most hopelessly romantic songs ever by NO. It's about how much he loves his significant other, to the point that he'd die with that person to be with them forever and never have to live life without them.

    This song brings a tear to my eye everytime I hear it.

    General CommentVery heartfelt and sincere. Pretty sure everyone could relate this song to their loved ones at certain points of their lives. FYI: This is a very personal song to Bernard Sumner, according to the man himself, and he always regrets that they didn't put this out as a single.
