Runaway Love Lyrics

 
 

Runaway Love lyrics by Ludacris follows the lives of three young girls in bad home situations. Mary J. Blige is also featured on the vocals as the two weave a tale about three young fictional girls, Lisa, Nicole and Erica who are 9, 10 and 11-years-old respectively, who try to deal with situations of rape, physical violence, gun violence and unwanted pregnancy in relation to parents who are either absent or un-protective.

Runaway Love is a single from the Ludacris Release Therapy album and was performed at the 2007 Grammy Awards with Mary J. Blige and Earth, Wind and Fire. The protagonist in the song unveils the young girls' ordeals and then tries to offer some comfort and protection to the girls by the end of the song.


Runaway Love Lyrics

Yeah, and it go a little something *scratch* like this

[Mary J Blige]
Runaway Love(love, love, love, love) Runaway Love(love, love, love, love)
Runaway Love(loooove) Runaway Love(ooooo)
Runaway Love(ooooo) Runaway Love(ooooo)
Runaway Love(mmmmm) Runaway Love(runaway love)

[Ludacris]
Now little Lisa's only 9 years old
She's tryna figure out why the world is so cold
While she's all alone and ain't never met her family
Mama's always gone and she never met her daddy
Part of her is missing and nobody will listen
Mama's on drugs gettin' high up in the kitchen
Bringin' home men at different hours of the night
Startin' with some laughs... usually ending in a fight
Sneakin' in her room when her mama's knocked out
Tryna have his way and little Lisa says 'ouch'
She tries to resist but then all he does is beat her
Tries to tell her mom but her mama don't believe her
Lisa's stuck up in the world on her own
Forced to think that Hell is a place called home
Nothin' else to do but get some clothes and pack
She says she's bout to run away and never come back

[Mary J Blige]
Runaway Love(runaway, runaway) Runaway Love(runaway love)
Runaway Love(loooove) Runaway Love(runaway love)
Runaway Love(aahahah) Runaway Love(runaway, runaway, runaway)
Runaway Love(loooove) Runaway Love(runaway love)

[Ludacris]
Little Nicole is only 10 years old
She's steady tryna figure out why the world is so cold
Why she's not pretty and nobody seems to like her
Alcoholic step-dad always wanna strike her
Yells and abuses leaves her with some bruises
Teachers ask questions she's makin' up excuses
Bleeding on the inside crying on the out
It's only one girl who really knows what she's about
Her name is little Stacey and they become friends
Promise that they'll always be tight till the end
Until one day little Stacey gets shot
A drive-by bullet went stray up on da block
Now Nicole's stuck up in the world on her own
Forced to think that Hell is a place called home
Nothin' else to do but get her clothes and pack
She says she's bout to run away and never come back

[Mary J Blige]
Runaway Love(runaway) Runaway Love(runaway love)
Runaway Love(runaway don't keep runnin) Runaway Love(oooooooh)
Runaway Love(ooooooooh) Runaway Love(runaway love)
Runaway Love(aahaahah) Runaway Love(runaway love)

[Ludacris]
Little Ericka is 11 years old
She's steady tryna figure out why the world is so cold
So she pops X to get rid of all the pain
Plus she's having sex with a boy who's sixteen
Emotions run deep and she thinks she's in love
So there's no protection he's using no glove
Never thinkin' bout the conceqences of her actions
Livin' for today and not tomorrow's satisfaction
The days go by and her belly gets big
The father bails out he ain't ready for a kid
Knowin' her mama would blow it all out of proportion
Plus she lives poor so no money for abortion
Ericka's stuck up in the world on her own
Forced to think that Hell is a place called home
Nothin' else to do but get her clothes and pack
She says she's bout to run away and never come back

[Mary J Blige]
Runaway Love(runaway) Runaway Love(runaway love babe)
Runaway Love(don't keep runin girl) Runaway Love(aaaaahaah)
Runaway Love(runaway, runaway) Runaway Love(runaway, runaway)
Runaway Love(runnin, runin, runin,runin) Runaway Love(aaaaaaahhh runin)
Running(x3)
Runaway Love, Runaway love
Runaway Love, Runaway Love
Runaway Love, Runaway Love
Runaway Love, Runaway Love

Don't you keep on runnin away
Don't you keep on runnin away
i know how you feel
ive been there
i was runnin away too
I'll will run away with you
I'll will run away with you
Runnin runnin runnin away love

run away run away love
dont keep runin away
i'll run away with you
if you want me too
La Ahhahhhaha

[Ludacris]
Yeah, I can only imagine what you're going through, ladies
Sometimes I feel like running away myself
So do me a favor right now and close your eyes
And picture us running away together and
When we come back everything is gonna be OK

(whisper) Open your eyes.
