[Hook - Mary J. Blige]
Runaway love (run away)
Runaway love (run away)
Runaway love (run away)
Runaway love (run away)
Runaway love (run away)
Runaway love (run away)
Runaway love (run away)
Runaway love (run away)

[Verse 1 - Ludacris]
Now little Lisa is only 9 years old
Shes tryin to figure out why the world is so cold
Why she's all alone and they never met her family
Mamas always gone and she never met her daddy
Part of her is missin and nobody will listenin
Mama is on drugs gettin high up in the kitchen
Bringin home men at different hours of the night
Startin with some laughs usually endin in a fight
Sneak into her room while her mamas knocked out
Tryin to 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 is 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.

[Hook - Mary J. Blige]
Runaway love
Runaway love
Runaway love
Runaway love
Runaway love
Runaway love
Runaway love
Runaway love.

[Verse 2 - Ludacris]
Little Nicole is only 10 years old
Shes steady tryin to figure 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
Bleedin on the inside, cryin on the out
There's only one girl who really knows what she's about
Her name is little Stacy and they become friends
Promise that they'll always be tight til the end
Until one day lil Stacy gets shot
A drive by bullet went stray up on her block
Now Nicole 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.

[Hook - Mary J. Blige]
Runaway love
Runaway love
Runaway love
Runaway love
Runaway love
Runaway love
Runaway love
Runaway love

[Verse 3 - Ludacris]
Little Erica is 11 years old
Shes steady tryin to figure why the world is so cold
So she pops x to get rid of all the pain
Cause she's havin s** with a boy whose 16
Emotions run deep and she thinks she's in love
So there's no protection he's usin no glove
Never thinkin bout the consequences of her actions
Livin for today and not tomorrows satisfaction
The days go by and her belly gets big
The father bails out he aint ready for a kid
Knowin her mama will blow it all out of proportion
Plus she lives poor so no money for abortion
Erica is 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 say she's 'bout to run away and never come back.

[Hook - Mary J. Blige]
Runaway Runaway [repeats til end]

Don't keep runnin girl
Running, running, running
Don't keep on running
Don't don't keep running
I know how you feel I been there
I was running away too
I will runaway with you
I will runaway with you
Running running running
Runaway runaway love
Don't keep running away
Ill run away with you
If you want me to

Yeah I can only imagine
What your goin 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
Open your eyes

    My meaning too runaway love is, young people getting beat & hurt, not getting the love that they need like happy love not beatings, this is sad because half of the girls try too tell their mom but dosen't believe them also how one girl gets pregnant & don't no what too do with it her boyfriend doesn't want nothing too do with her, its all about how young children running for freedom of getting beat.
