Run to You

Notes

First conceived as a somewhat standard mid-tempo FM-rocker, “Run To You” unexpectedly got a new life thanks to Clarence Öfwerman’s and Anders Herrlin’s brilliant arrangement. Per says he’s especially fond of the middle-eight, the “Take a walk inside my dreams” part of the song. “A middle-eight isn’t as important in today’s pop music as it used to be. But for me the greatest songs always had a great middle-eight, taking you somewhere else before building up to the chorus again… it’s almost like a song within the song”. “One of my favourite Roxette tracks… recorded during those wonderful sessions in Capri”, Marie says.

Per: This was recorded in December 1992. The arrangement got a complete make-over in Capri when we recorded it for the Crash! Boom! Bang!-album. I think it was Anders Herrlin who had some brilliant ideas at the time. It certainly wasn’t me…

Roxette – Original Version 3:39

Baby sometimes I feel like dying
Driving while I’m closing my eyes
Moving in and out of hiding
Trying to catch some truth in my life
Watching your stars and your moonlight
Come tumbling down from the sky
Take it now!

I’m gonna run to you
I’m gonna come to you
I wanna find you
In everything that I do
I’m gonna run to you
I’m gonna count on you
I’m gonna follow
Baby what else can I do?

Sunday morning my town is sleeping
Lying all alone in my bed
There’s not a sound I can’t help but listening
Wishing I was somewhere else instead
But sometimes they’re too hard to handle
Those voices inside my head
Listen now!

I’m gonna run to you
I’m gonna come to you
I wanna find you
In everything that I do
I’m gonna run to you
I’m gonna count on you
I’m gonna follow
Baby what else can I do?

Take a walk inside my dream
A church, a lonely road
All the people come and go and come and go

Do it now!

Roxette – Directamente a tí [Original Version] 3:30

Oye, a veces me siento mal
Es una cuestión personal
Tengo un corazón para nadie
Nadie se lo quiere quedar
Pero si lo parto contigo
Yo vivo de tu mitad
Tu mitad

Voy directamente a tí
Directamente a tí
Para encontrarte
Yo puedo llegar hasta el fin
Voy directamente a tí
Directamente a tí
Aunque no quieras voy
A caer sobre tí

La ciudad parece tan triste
Todo está: en silencio total
Deseo que algo pase en mi vida
Pero nada pasa de verdad
Voy a buscar la salida
Me marcho de la ciudad
Hacia tí

Voy directamente a tí
Directamente a tí
Para encontrarte
Yo puedo llegar hasta el fin
Voy directamente a tí
Directamente a tí
Aunque no quieras voy
A caer sobre tí

Un paseo por el sol oir tu voz y
Mi vida marcha bien
Mucho mejor

Directamente a tí
Voy directamente a tí
Directamente a tí
Aunque no quiras
Ah, ah

Voy directamente a tí
Directamente a tí
Para encontrarte
Yo puedo llegar hasta el fin
Voy directamente a tí
Directamente a tí
Aunque no quieras voy
A caer sobre tí
