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 is on drugs gettin high up in the kitchen
Bringin home men at different hours of the night
Startin with 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 some get some clothes and pack
She says shes bout to run away and never come back.

[Hook - Mary J. Blige]

Runaway love [Repeat 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 lil stacy and they become friends
Promise that they 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 some get some clothes and pack,
She says shes bout to run away and never come back.

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

[Verse 3 - Ludacris]
Little erica is eleven years old,
Shes steady tryin to figure why the world is so cold,
So she pops x to get rid of all the pain,
Plus 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 [Repeat till end of song]
