"Now I Run" is a song by Australian singer Shannon Noll. Released in 2006, it was the third single from Noll's second album, Lift.
The song is written in honour of Noll's father, who was killed in a tragic farming accident. Their close relationship is clearly evident, with the lyrics of the chorus including the words: "Everything that I am, comes from a better man." It was praised by music critics, with influential Australian music reviewer Cameron Adams naming "Now I Run" as one of his top singles of 2006, describing it as "So soaked in raw emotion you can imagine the goose bumps on his arms as he's singing".
The single peaked at number six on the Australian Singles Chart. Noll performed the song during a special episode of the Nine Network's The Footy Show in Beaconsfield, Tasmania, to celebrate the rescue of trapped miners Todd Russell and Brant Webb.
