Running Back To You

Album: The Comfort Zone (1991)
Charted: 18

Songfacts®:

  • The first single from Williams' breakout 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. >>
