She says her love for me could never die
But that'd change if she ever found out about you and I

Oh - but her love is cold
It wouldn't hurt her if she didn't know, cause...

When it gets too much
I need to feel your touch

I'm gonna run to you
I'm gonna run to you
Cause when the feelin's right I'm gonna run all night
I'm gonna run to you

She's got a heart of gold she'd never let me down
But you're the one that always turns me on
You keep me comin' 'round

I know her love is true
But it's so damn easy makin' love to you

I got my mind made up
I need to feel your touch

I'm gonna run to you
Ya - I'm gonna run to you
Cause when the feelin's right I'm gonna stay all night
I'm gonna run to you
Ya - I'm gonna run to you
Oh when the feelin's right I'm gonna run all night
I'm gonna run to you

    General CommentStormgirl's intergpretation is the obvious one of course, and the first to come to mind when hearing the song. But when I saw the videocip for this song I was surprised to discover he is actually talking about music/guitar! The clip shows him running for most of the song and at the end you think he'll find the girl but no, he stops running, picks his guitar from the ground and starts playing! If you think about it it makes sense, a lot of musicians think of their music as their "other" lover and approach the playing of an instrument as making love.

    General CommentThis song is all about his woman and his guitar. I think its all about having an escape from his reality. He loves his woman more than anything but when he needs a escape he goes and plays his guitar because its easy for him and it sooths and comforts him. Its brilliant of him to have kind of a double meaning to this song though!

    General CommentIt's about the affair that this guy is having with another woman. He knows that it's wrong because his girlfriend looks after him, is good to him and loves him unconditionally, but he doesn't get the satisfaction from her

    General CommentMarieC is correct. The song's about his guitar and his music!

    Although Stormgirl's interpretation is the one most people make; and it's pretty easy to do so! But yeah, for him it's personally about his guitar. But I think he wrote it with other people in mind.

    General CommentOkay but a lot of video clips are irrelevant to the meaning of the song. I think as well that it must be about an affair. How do you explain "it's so damn easy making love to you"? Metaphorically, sure it would work...
