Song lyrics
Yeah and it goes a little something like this

Runaway love
Runaway love
Runaway love
Runaway love
Runaway love
Runaway love
Runaway love
Runaway love

[Verse 1 - Ludacris]
Now little lisa is only 9 years old
Shes tryin to figure out why the world is so cold
Why shes 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's 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 shes bout to run away and never come back.

[Hook - Mary J. Blige]
Runaway love [x8]

[Verse 2 - Ludacris]
Little nicole is only 10 years old
Shes steady tryin to figure why the world is so cold
Why shes 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 makin up excuses
Bleedin on the inside, cryin on the out
Its only one girl really knows what she about
Her name is little stacy and they become friends
Promise that they always be tight til the end
Until one day little stacy gets shot
A drive by bullet went straight 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 some get her clothes and pack
She says shes bout to run away and never come back.

[Hook - Mary J. Blige]
Runaway love [x8]

[Verse 3 - Ludacris]
Little erica is 11 years old
Shes steady tryin to figure why the world is so cold
So she pops...to get rid of all the pain
Cause shes havin sex with a boy whos sixteen
Emotions run deep and she thinks shes in love
So theres no protection hes 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 outta 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 shes about to run away and never come back.

[Hook - 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 Ahhh..

[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...

I'm really impressed. It rarely happens these times to listen to such a song, with such a meaning. You keep thinkin then 'yeah, what the hell is goin on on this world??' Amazing song.

You know, I really don't listen to hip hop,
but this song....it's gotta something to say, real meaning.
Something to wake up this generation.

jessalee, i agree with you, partially. this song is ludacris' way of doing something. not many people realize what teens go through in a broken home. by bringing the word out to the masses, ludacris is trying to get as many people as he can involved, and he seems to be doing a good job with it

tortured tears, I agree, this song is great, and I have heard of worse than a 16 year old sleeping with and 11 year old. I know a girl who was raped by a 22 year old when she was 14. this song is very true, and it stricks a chord in all but the hardest of harts. This song is amazing

This song is so sad. It did give me goosebumps when I was listening to it and I almost cried. The only thing sadder is that this is real life. People need to wake up and realize what's going on out there. You wish there could be a happy ending, but sometimes...there isn't.
