Songtekst

How many times have I felt down inside
The need to be loved by you
I wanted to show you how good it could be
If you would only show a little interest in me
But you run, you just won't show love
That's the thing you're frightened of

He's a runner

You came into my life and tuned my head around
And just as quickly you put me down
Now you don't wanna know what I'm going through
'Cause just like I said, it means nothing to you
So you run, you just won't show love
That's the thing you're frightened of

He's a runner

He's a runner, he's a runner

I've got this need eating away at my soul
An insurmountable need that I just can't control
You created this fire, when the flame got too hot
You turned and walked away, just leaving me on the spot
Yes you run, you just won't show love
That's the thing you're frightened of

There's little hope but the fool that I am
Still holding on to this dream of a man
The taste of his skin, the gentle touch of his hand
Is worth waiting for, so I must understand
Yes you run, you just won't show love
That's the thing you're frightened of

He's a runner, he's a runner

Running away, running away, running away
He's a runner, just running away

He's a runner, he's a runner
He's a runner, he's a runner

Songinformatie

Na de succesvolle periode van 1973 t/m 1977 met de phillysound van Kenneth Gamble en Leon Huff stapten The Three Degrees begin 1978 over naar de Italiaanse discosound van Giorgio Moroder en Pete Bellotte, die o.a. succes hadden met Donna Summer. Het 1e album van The Three Degrees bij Ariola was getiteld "New Dimension" om het nieuwe geluid te accentueren.
