This is gonna hurt, this is gonna hurt like hell,
This is gonna damn near kill me,
Sometimes the truth ain't easy

I know that you're scared of telling me something
I don't wanna hear, baby, believe that I'm not leaving,
You couldn't give me one good reason

Love don't run, love don't hide,
It won't turn away or back down from a fight
Baby, I'm right here, and I ain't going anywhere
Love's too tough, won't give up, no not on us
Baby, love don't run

Let's lay it on the line, I don't care if it takes all night,
This is gonna make us stronger,
It's gonna make forever longer,
I know it'd be easier walking away but,
What we got is real, and I wanna save us,
Baby, we can do it, baby, we'll get through it

Cause love don't run, love don't hide,
It won't turn away or back down from a fight,
Baby, I'm right here, and I ain't going anywhere,
Love's too tough, it won't give up, no not on us
Baby, love don't run
Baby, love don't run

So come over here and lay down in my arms,
Baby, tell me everything that's on your heart,

Cause I won't run, I won't hide,
I won't turn away, I just wanna make things right
Baby, I'm right here, and I ain't going anywhere,
Love's too tough, it won't give up, no not on us
Baby, love don't run
Baby, love don't run
Baby, love don't run

Song facts

"Love Don't Run" is a single from Steve Holy, released in December 2010 and the first one released in four years. The beautiful power ballad is penned by Rachel Thibodeau, Joe Leathers and Ben Glover.

"We wrote this on a songwriting trip down to Rosemary Beach," Thibodeau tells Taste of Country. "Joe has an amazing house there, and it's such a special place to get away with great friends and write songs. It's one of my favorite places to go. I have a coffee mug that I bought at shop in Rosemary Beach, and every time I make a cup of tea or coffee, it makes me think of all the special songs we've written and awesome memories we've made on our trips there."

"We really wanted to write a relationship song about sticking it out when times are tough … being brutally honest about how you feel and knowing that the other person will not leave, no matter how difficult times are," she continues. "The three of us are all married, so we had a lot to pull from about long-term relationships."

"I feel so honored and thankful that Steve recorded it and put it out as a single, and I'm thrilled that people are responding so positively to the song," Thibodeau says. "Joe, Ben and I all feel very blessed."
