Ready To Run

Album: Four (2014)
Charted: 44 77

Songfacts®:

  • This folksy tune finds the guys realizing how much they love their girlfriends, and hurrying to them before it's too late:

    Wherever you are is the place I belong
    Cuz I wanna be free and I wanna be young
    I'll never look back now
    I'm ready to run


    Louis and Liam penned the song with regular 1D collaborators Jamie Scott, Julian Bunetta and John Ryan. The same quintet also penned together several songs on Midnight Memories including the title track.
