I'm sitting on my porch watchin' the law
As they ride past in their patrol car
So tell me why I feel like the enemy
Who's suppose to be here protecting me

I might have went too far
Helping to contribute to makin' they're job hard
Serving feels like these people ain't no enemy
I can't believe I'm out here killin' my community

If you knew how far I came
From where I am and where I use to be
Don't want it, you can tell by the look at me
This gangster life ain't no longer in me and I'm

Tired of the runnin', tired of the runnin'
Tired of the runnin'
Running from the law, baby you gotta believe me
I said, I'm tired of the runnin', tired of the runnin'
Tired of the runnin'
Running from the law, baby you gotta believe me

I know there's things I could've change girl
I know there's things I could've done a lot better
Instead I'm in the streets, tryna make that cheddar
Thinking in my mind that you gon' be there for ever

I know I coulda let it all go
But I was thinking it would make life better
Instead I'm sitting in my cell writing this letter
Thought I wouldn't get caught 'cause I was way too clever

I learned there's no one to catch you when you're falling
And there'll be no one to hear you when you calling
Do you know what it's like to wake up in the morning
While you're starving you hearing bugs crawling

Reminiscin' on them days you was walking
With pretty women on your arm while you're flossing
Thankful that I didn't end up in a coffin'
Some see too often

I'm tired of the runnin', tired of the runnin'
Tired of the runnin'
Running from the law, baby you gotta believe me
I said, I'm tired of the runnin', tired of the runnin'
Tired of the runnin'
Running from the law, baby you gotta believe me

I said I'm tired, said I'm tired
I said I'm tired, so tired, yeah

I said I'm tired of the runnin', tired of the runnin'
Tired of the runnin'
Running from the law, you gotta believe me
I said, I'm tired of the runnin', tired of the runnin'
Tired of the runnin'
Running from the law, you gotta believe me, said I'm tired
