Ludacris ft. Mary J. Blige – Runaway Love

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 3:20 pm by LynxLee


Ludacris brings forth a darn good song & rhyme for the hard lives of the young girls all around the world who’s having a hard times with family, friends, relationships, looks or even studies. The girls in the lyrics are so young, they need to be loved properly & not be exposed to all this.

Control is important, yet.. too much control brings up so much tension that the girls get real screwed up to “Anything is possible” state.
Parents; wake up & smell your children (not literally). Love them & not mess it.
Kids; don’t make your parent’s life a living hell.

Mary J. Blige doing what she does best. Darn good vocals there.

This song is a keeper for a bit. Real nice if you know what it means.Though.. don’t love it too much, it’s not good knowing everything’s always not right.

I mean.. Let’s face it; Life Sucks!

On a personal note;
It’s all ups & down. Usually I’ll write from the oldest to the current. This time, I wanna write the bad stuff first & the good stuff for the end.

Bad Stuff

“Minor” Car Accident
(at least I felt like a Minor)

Last night, I had a car accident. Just leaving my apartment to grab some bit with my girlfriend, I drove to the guard house, ready to cross the road. I drove in front because there was no car, just a motorbike; plus.. the car had to drive past a bump, so I thought he’d be slow… Guess not.. So, since I’m in front; I had sorta drove to the front of the main road a bit & is kinda blocking traffic.

So, I decided to reverse. Looking at both my right & back mirror, the coast was clear. I reversed & BANG!. A Honda Car! It happened to be my girlfriend’s neighbour! I was in my car, still very shocked; the guy got out of the car screaming; “FUCK!”, “FUCK! FUCK! FUCK!”, “FUCK YOU! WHAT THE.. FUCK YOU!”, “GET OUT OF THE CAR!! FUCK YOU!!!”.

I was totally BANGED UP, erm.. u know what I mean.. so.. I got out of the car & it turns out my car’s bumper was on top of his car’s bumper. Hmm.. I told him to reverse because I can’t go in front, as it’s the main road. He cursed me & told me to drive forward instead. I messed up. I was so fucked up. So I drove in front & backed up to a parking space.

Her wife & kids were in panic & kept shouting “Get IN the CAR!”. He was huge & very intimidating. I mean, the car was practically new. Honda? New? Oh, I’m in deep shit! So I calmed the guy down & admit it was my fault. As a matter of fact, I thought it was partly his fault because he hadn’t turn on his light in the night & he surely had drove close to me for me to be able to bang his car in reverse.

He mentioned that he didn’t drive in front, I was the one reversing to banged his car. So.. yeah.. I’m a 24 year old kid who’s not working & still “Mama, Papa” & stuff.. the car that I couldn’t afford. The fuel, even.. So.. I got struck to how “useless” I was.. No matter what anyone says, it kinda sucks to be in a position like that. I’m lucky it wasn’t any worse, but at the same time; I wished it hadn’t happen.

So.. my bro came (it’s his apartment that I bunked in) after I called my mom & bro.. He discussed with the guy & agreed to go with him tomorrow to a workshop to get an estimation on the damage cost. My bro calmed me down & stuff & said he’ll handle it.. as a matter of fact, I think he’s in the workshop with the guy now, as I’m typing this.

So.. after that situation, he drove off & I drove off to feed my girlfriend. While driving, I had so much thinking & shared my feelings with my girlfriend. Of course, also feeling ups & downs… The way life is.. As a matter of fact, I’ll share my feelings & thoughts at the end of this blog.

Other bad stuff

  1. There are multiple car scratches (& dents) that happen to just “appear”!
  2. I feel like quitting religion (spiritual faith? close to zero). Just “be” in this world.
  3. I fought with my mom the fact that I wasn’t in the mood to talk but she does.
  4. I brought the dog (I used to call him “Pepper”) out & he bruised my knee & arm.
  5. I treated everyone badly in the house today as they tell me to do things but I told them, later.
  6. I fought with my girlfriend also, she told me to be nice & not scold anyone; I replied, “Whatever”.
  7. Oh yeah.. the last resit that I took? I failed.. another one subject to my trash days!

You know what.. I’m not in the mood. I’ll drop the good stuff after everything shifts back on track. I’m babysitting the house, my grandmas, the bloody dog & my small brother. I’m so not in the mood for anything now.

She’s tryna figure out why the world is so cold
Why she’s all alone and she never met her family
Mama’s always gone and she never met her daddy
Part of her is missing and nobody will listen

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

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

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

Open your eyes

 

 

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(love
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
Why she’s all alone and she 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 (or fucked) up in the kitchen
Bringin’ home men any 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
There’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 her 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 Erica 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
Erica’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 will run away with you
I 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.
