[Hook:]
Run-run-run away, lost-lost-lost my mind
Want you to stay, want you to be my prize
Run-run-run away, lost-lost-lost my mind
Want you to stay, want you to be my prize

[Verse 1:]
And now you standing there, holding out our promise ring
You're crying but you feeling not a thing
'Cause it dawned on you like a new day that your man's not a king
He a parasite and your life's really got up in
And all you got is him but he got everybody
You a working woman and he a busy body
You had big dreams but he had a little hobby
And you had the feeling you could change a nigga city probably
And now here we are, dinner table flipped
Cell phone open, text message six,
On the floor like the tell tale heart
She ask do I wanna be this? I'm like oh hell start
'Cause I'm at the point of giving in so we can begin again
Fresher than the prince in them Bel-Air parks
But I can tell by the look that I get from her eyes
I took everything she had and now she empty inside
I try to reverse roles, if it was me in her place
I'd be putting someone in hearse mode and I don't feel like a stranger
She looking at me like I raped her, all of the sudden
The memory of what I used to be drifting through the air like a vapor
And it breaks her, she don't got nowhere to go
We don't even know the neighbors so I tell her...

[Hook:]
Run-run-run away, lost-lost-lost my mind
Want you to stay, want you to be my prize
Run-run-run away, lost-lost-lost my mind
Want you to stay, want you to be my prize

[Verse 2:]
But I was never one to fight but we would argue
How I would never be the type of guy that her mother likes
So what do I do? Go and prove her mother right?
I'm too embarrassed, I don't even want the rights
Show up at her door with flowers like poor Nate
What I do? And then I'm blocked at the doorway
I could see her in the kitchen with her head down
Wishing she could put it all behind her and call me
We was too close and it's been too long
And the memory of what we had is too strong
She had some genuine feelings but they was used wrong
And now the only decent thing to do is move on, as she watched me
It took her every ounce of willpower not to stop me
And accept my apology, all of a sudden, heard some footsteps from behind me
Think she wanted to hold me but she only told me...

[Hook:]
Run-run-run away, lost-lost-lost my mind
Want you to stay, want you to be my prize
Run-run-run away, lost-lost-lost my mind
Want you to stay, want you to be my prize
Run away, run away, run away
Run away, run away, run away
Run away, run away, run away
Run away, run away, run away
