"Run to You" is a song by Third Day, featuring Lacey Sturm, for their album, Revelation. It was released as a single on September 16th, 2008. The song was written by Mac Powell and produced by Howard Benson.

Revelation also features the two-time Grammy nominated song, "Born Again", which also features Sturm.

Background Edit

During production, Benson felt one recording session with Sturm went beyond the ordinary to the point where he left the recording room and told Powell "You have to go out there, and you and her do this because you're coming to God right now in front of my eyes. You guys handle it". According to Benson, both he and Sturm were moved to tears by the session. Benson felt something like that does not happen often in a recording studio. In a separate session with Sturm, bassist Tai Anderson said that, after recording the end of the song "Run to You", Sturm said she could not believe she was recording with the band. Concerned that Sturm might have been pressured by her management team into doing the collaboration, Anderson said they told Sturm that she didn't have to do the recording. Sturm assuaged their concerns by telling the band that she was actually excited to be able to perform on their album as the band's music had helped her during a difficult period in her teenage years.

Lyrics Edit

(Powell)
I was tired of waiting
Playing all the games and
Living in a place that was not for me
So I thought it was time
For me to get what's mine
And to do it all, everything I dreamed
What I thought was the best of me turned to be
All the worst I could find

If I run to you
Will you hold me in your arms forevermore
If I run to you
Will you hold me in your arms forevermore


(Powell & Sturm; alternating)
Now I got a feeling
That I've got to leave and
Find a way back to where I came from
Though I don't deserve it
I know it's unheard but
Living here without you, my life is done
I confess that I shouldn't have run from you
Now I know I was wrong


(Powell & Sturm)
If I run to you
Will you hold me in your arms forevermore
If I run to you
Will you hold me in your arms forevermore

(Powell)
Nowhere to run to
And no one to turn to
I'm dying out here on my own
(Powell & Sturm)
Long before I even thought of returning
Your arms are wide open
Waiting for me to come home

(Powell & Sturm)
If I run to you
Will you hold me in your arms forevermore
If I run to you
Will you hold me in your arms forevermore
If I run to you
Will you hold me in your arms forevermore
If I run to you
Will you hold me in your arms forevermore

(Sturm)
Come here, come here
Will you hold me?
Oh, I need you
Will you hold me?
Will you hold me?

(Powell)
If I run to you [2x]
