About Run to the Sun

"Run to the Sun" is a song by British synthpop duo Erasure, released as the second single from their sixth studio album I Say I Say I Say. An uptempo dance music track, the song displays signature synthesizer programming by band member Vince Clarke. "Run to the Sun" was written by Clarke with fellow Erasure member Andy Bell. The track peaked at number six on the UK singles chart (Erasure's fifteenth UK Top 10 hit). In Germany, "Run to the Sun" stalled at number forty-nine and in the U. S. it reached position twenty-four on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart. On the U. S. Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart, it climbed to number fourteen. The UK 7" single of "Run to the Sun" was issued on yellow-coloured vinyl and featured a fold-out poster of the single's cover artwork. The single's B-side, a ballad entitled "Tenderest Moments", was later re-recorded by Erasure in an acoustic version for their 2006 album Union Street. The video for the song, shot at the World Clock in Alexanderplatz Berlin, features an early appearance by Jason Statham as a silver-painted background dancer.

For the first time in my life I'm up to run away
It's not a choice that I made easily

It's not that I'm ashamed to face the light of day
It's really just a case of self-delusion

And I know it ain't easy
I know it ain't easy
I know it ain't easy
To see the truth

So run the sun, here's one for the road
And may God's love go with you
My tears are starting to show
Whoa

That I should fall from grace implies a twist of fate
But I'm open to the joys and woes of passion

And who shall take the wheel when it's time for overkill?
There's no release when destiny is calling

And I know it ain't easy
I know it ain't easy
I know it ain't easy
To see the truth

So run the sun, here's one for the road
And may God's love go with you
My tears are starting to show
Whoa

So run to the sun, here's one for the road
Though I'll never be lonely
Are you so high above me?
Whoa

Run to the sun
Run to the sun
Run to the sun

And I know it ain't easy
Somebody reach me
Willing to teach me

So run to the sun, here's one for the road
And may God's love go with you
My tears are starting to show
Whoa

I'll run to the sun, here's one for the road
Though I'll never be lonely
Are you so high above me?
Whoa

So run to the sun, here's one for the road
And may God's love go with you
My tears are starting to show
Whoa
So run to the sun, here's one for the road
Though I'll never be lonely
Are you so high above me?
Whoa
