惠妮官網經典MV倒數-"Run To You"


Whitney Video Countdown - Part 11 "Run To You"

本週官網經典MV回顧為"Run To You",收錄於(1992) The Bodyguard OST。

The Bodyguard is still one of the best selling movie soundtracks of all-time and the next video on our countdown, "Run To You," was Whitney's fourth and last single to be released from this worldwide smash. Like the other videos from The Bodyguard, "Run To You" is predominantly compiled from clips of the movie, but it also devotes plenty of time to stunning close-ups of Whitney herself. As she sings, Whitney takes on an angelic bearing while reciting the song's deeply romantic lyrics, and is later shown running towards the viewer out of a sea of clouds, in reference to the song's title, naturally. "Run To You" would make it to #10 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary Chart and #15 on the UK Singles Chart, and was later nominated for a 1992 Academy Award for "Best Original Song," along with the third single from The Bodyguard soundtrack (and video 8 on our countdown), "I Have Nothing".

Whitney Houston - Run To You



Lyrics:
I know that when you look at me
There's so much that you just don't see
But if you would only take the time
I know in my heart you'll find
Oh, a girl who's scared sometimes
Who isn't always strong, can't you see the hurt in me?
I feel so all alone

Chorus:
I wanna run to you hoo hoo
I wanna run to you hoo hoo hoo
Won't you hold me in your arms
And keep me safe from harm?
I wanna run to you hoo hoo
But if I come to you hoo hoo hoo hoo
Tell me will you stay or will you run away

Each day, each day I play the role
Of someone always in control
But at night, I come home and turn the key
There's nobody there, no-one cares for me
Oh, what's the sense
Of trying hard to find your dreams
without someone to share it with
Tell me what does it mean

Chorus

Run away no
I need you here
I need you here to wipe away my tears
To kiss away my fears
If you only knew, how much I wanna run to you

Chorus

  1. 這首歌真的非常好聽,但也極難唱!
    是我覺得他眾多高難度歌曲之最,融合了音高、真假氣音轉換、轉音,超難唱的。
    會不會因為太難唱了,所以她都沒live過。
    但我之前看youtube這首歌底下的回應,有人說這首有現場,對她來說輕而易舉,但就是沒流出的影像。
    好像看喔,這首她如果唱live,一定比那些模仿她的東南亞歌后更有靈性許多!

  2. To Rico:
    這首歌真的是好聽+耐聽!
    Live版沒唱過,我想是因為惠媽太懶了~
    期待那傳說中的Live版能早日重見天日。

    應該要多弄!
