Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current guest host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is Around/Down/Sideways/Up.

I added a direction – back – just so I could use this song! 😀

I’m a big Vanessa Williams fan and Running Back to You was the first single from her breakout second studio album The Comfort Zone. This uptempo song is about a woman who’s still in love with a man that takes her granted, lies all the time, and perhaps cheats. In spite of that, she’s only giving him one more chance, and if things don’t change, she’s walking out and never coming back.

The single became one of the biggest hits of her career; it topped Billboards Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for two weeks from October 5 to October 12, 1991 and reached number eighteen on the Billboard Hot 100.

A colorful music video, directed by Ralph Ziman, was shot for the single.

Enjoy!

    I love Running Back to You! I only know “Dreamin'” and “Colors of the WInd”, so I don’t much about `The Comfort Zone` album. But I have to check this because this great. It has the new jack swing sound, which I like, and also feels like there is some sort of a freestyle element in “Running Back to You”. I love the high-pitch synthesized piano diddy during the chorus (and after the sax intro).

    I love this song! Thanks for introducing me to my new favorite this week!
