from RUNAWAY (single)

written by Jim, Caroline, Sharon & Andrea Corr

Released in the fall of 1995, “Runaway” was the debut single by The Corrs. It was taken from their David Foster produced debut album, “Forgiven Not Forgotten.”
“Runaway” was written by The Corrs, beautifully sung by Andrea Corr and offered international audiences the group’s winning blend of traditional Irish music with catchy pop and sweet vocal harmonies. It became a Top Ten hit in Ireland and Australia and had good success in the U.S. where it reached #68 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and #20 on the Adult Contemporary Chart. Foster’s work was very respectful of the group’s musical roots while obviously adding his golden touch with the polished production and high-tech sounds. In 1999, after The Corrs big break with their partially Foster produced sophomore album, “Talk On Corners,” “Runaway” was re-released in a remixed version by Tin Tin Out. The new version skyrocketed to #2 on the UK singles charts and went on to sell more than 200,000 copies. Both the group’s Foster produced albums became smash hits in several countries and overall sold more than 16 million copies worldwide to date.

Lyrics

Say it’s true, there’s nothing like me and you
I’m not alone, tell me you feel it too

And I would run away
I would run away, yeah, yeah
I would run away
I would run away with you

‘Cause I am falling in love with you
No never, I’m never gonna stop
Falling in love with you

Close the door, lay down upon the floor
And by candlelight, make love to me through the night
(through the night)

‘Cause I have run away
I have run away, yeah, yeah
I have run away, run away
I have run away with you

‘Cause I am falling in love (falling in love) with you
No never, I’m never gonna stopv
Falling in love with you
With you

And I would runaway
I would runaway, yeah, yeah
I would runaway (runaway)
I would runaway with you

‘Cause I am falling in love (falling in love) with you
No never, I’m never gonna stop
Falling in love with you

Falling in love (falling in love) with you
No never, I’m never gonna stop falling in love with you

With you, my love, with you
(With you, with you, with you, with you)
