You're past tense

Pretty sure it's run, though, as I googled it.

It's perfect past here therefore it's run, it's only ran when it's the imperfect tense.

My vote goes to ran
Some people just wanna watch the world burn. Wanna join me when I take my turn to pour the gas, light the match, see your world flip upside down and drop until it's inside out?

You ran. You have run. Not you have ran.

Just like you did/you have done. You don't say you have did.

Run.
So - "Run like you've never run before."

Ran would be acceptable if you altered the sentence to be:
"Run like you never ran before."
But... the first still sounds better, in my dialectic opinion.

(There's your past tense, Jackal The 'have' acts as a kind of modifier requiring the present tense verb to be used in past tense context, for example transforming "I ran" into "I have run". I think it might be called a 'transformative verb' or something?)
(I know, those are not the correct terms, don't attack me. I know my language, I just don't know what it's called. Blame the Australian Curriculum Board.)

EDIT: Make that conjugated. Thank you, madbasslover.

Ran. It just doesn't sound right at all with run.


"But why does proper grammar sometimes sound wrong!?"




Terrible reasoning.

Meh, English is boring.
