Verse 1 (Tina)
When you speak to me
I have direction
But I woke up today and you ain't said nothin' no
Which way do I go and tell me what do I do
But I will never know, if I don't get to you

(Chorus)
So I'm runnin'
If I can't walk then I'll crawl
And I'll get up if I fall
Gotta get to where you are
So I'm runnin'
And I won't stop for nothin'
It's hard but it's worth it
When it's you Lord that I want

Verse 2 (Erika)
Lookin' and lookin'
Said I'm just tryna find you
Feels like a dead end
I'm so lost without you
But I'm feelin' desperate
And I don't wanna feel this
I need a solution
And walkin' just won't get it

(Chorus)
So I'm runnin'
If I can't walk then I'll crawl
And I'll get up if I fall
Gotta get to where you are
So I'm runnin'
And I won't stop for nothin'
It's hard but it's worth it
When it's you Lord that I want

Bridge (Together)
As the deer pantith for the water
So my soul longeth after thee
You alone are my hearts
Desire and I long to worship thee

(Chorus)
So I'm runnin'
If I can't walk then I'll crawl
And I'll get up if I fall
Gotta get to where you are
So I'm runnin'
And I won't stop for nothin'
It's hard but it's worth it
When it's you Lord that I want

(Tina)
And I want you Lord

    I most definitely love this song. Its such a blessing and encouragment to people. I'm running to make it to jesus if it cause my life. I love this song soo much. It has great meaning to it. It tells me that i cant run unless i have jesus right by my side and that he is leading and guiding me.

    It means that god wants you to keep on running and finish your journey. You not only have to speak it you have to want it for yourself! May god bless you all!

    I'm running means a whole lot to me both spiritually and physically. It tells that there's no excuse to reaching god and reaching our dreams. If you can't run, u can crawl; get up whenever you fall and continue till u get to your destination. The whole message for me is 'keep moving', don't stop the movement for any reason.

    Means that i am running to god my personal savior, he's all tht i need. Also that i need to run to him, when ever i am in trouble. That's what i think i'm running means to me.
