Nike running commercial/love story



Charming commercial for Nike running about a long distance relationship:

"I Would Run to You" Lyrics:

Woman: You're so far away.
Man: You're so far away.
W: Ain't got too much pride.
M: Want you back by my side.
W: Well baby I want that too.
M: And baby I would run, run to you.

W: I would run to you.
M: I would run to you.

W: The first time you talked to me.
M: I knew we were meant to be.
W: And when we finally embraced.
M: Baby, I can't keep this pace.
W: I love you. There I said it.
M: I think I'm gonna need a medic.
W: You filled the hall with flower petals.
M: Why does my mouth taste like metal?
W: Baby I might die without you.
M: Baby, I might die.

W: I would run to you.
M: I'm not as strong as you.
W: I would run to you.
M: I (unintelligible heavy breathing) to you.

W: Love is a speeding comet.
M: I'm in a pool of my own vomit.
W: Love is a perfect vision.
M: This was such a bad decision.
W: Love makes everything serene.
M: Give me all of your morphine.

M: (Spoken)
Baby, I know we said we'd run across the country to be together, but I thought we were being symbolic. Why can't we fly, and meet somewhere in the middle? Like Kansas City? It's the Paris of the Plains...

W: Baby I love you so much that I would run to you.
M: You would run to me? You would run to me!
W: Baby I love you so much that I would run to you.

Together: I (you) would run to you (me).
