need help with late 80s (I think) song, but I don't know much about it...
I remember hearing it again while in college (1996-ish) on a "flashback lunch hour" radio show. I don't remember much about the song except it was slow and sounded a lot like OMD (to me). Anyway, the only line (or part of a line) I remember is : "...run, but don't walk." or maybe "...you can run, but don't walk."

I think this was the last line of the chorus, but I'm not sure about that either.

I have been trying to figure this out since the day I heard it on the radio, and thought it would not hurt to post it here. Thanks!

CARL WILSON - Run Don't Walk


(Carl Wilson/Phil Galdston)

There is a light filling the dark
That shines across your pillow and pierces my heart
Pick up the phone holding you tight
But I don't know your number that'll bring you home tonight

You say you're coming
But I need something more than talk
So if you're coming
Run don't walk
Run don't walk
Run don't walk
Run don't walk
Run don't walk

Look at the sun alone in the sky
I know it shines upon you across the lonely miles
But when it is gone the night is so cold
The light across your pillow is nothing I can hold

You say you're coming
But I need something more than talk
So if you're coming
Run don't walk
Don't keep me wondering
Give me something more than talk
And if you're coming
Run don't walk
Run don't walk
Run don't walk
Run don't walk away
Don't walk away
Run don't walk
Run don't walk
Run don't walk away
Don't walk away

Now you say you're coming
But I need something more than talk
So if you're coming
Run don't walk
Don't keep me wondering
Give me something more than talk
And if you're coming
Run don't walk
You say you say
Give me something
And if you're coming
Run don't walk
Run don't walk
Run don't walk
Run don't walk
Run don't walk
Run don't walk
Run don't walk

Run don't walk
Run don't walk
Run don't walk
Run don't walk
Run don't walk
