  • Shouldn't have to cry
    For you to make me smile, hey
    Talking down to me
    Like I'm your child, oh boy

    Shouldn't have to beg ya, oh
    To hear me out, no
    Shouldn't need another reason
    For me to shut you out
    Put my heart and my mind are in battle

    Lovin' you's like running, running on the line
    It's like I'm chasing down the lovin' there's no finish line in sight
    I just keep on running, running on the line
    And you wonder why I'm so damn tired all the time

    I keep on running
    (keep running, I keep running, keep running, I keep running)
    Feels like I'm running, running on the line
    (keep running, I keep running, keep running, I keep running)
    I keep on running
    (keep running, I keep running, keep running, I keep running)
    And you wonder why I'm so damn tired all the time

    What's a little laughter, ooh
    When he comes with so much pain
    I'll be here for-ever
    If I wait for you to change, uh uh oh

    I don't know if I can do it
    Cuz I'm running low on fluid
    Can't believe you brought me to this
    Open my heart, you straight abuse it
    What's it gonna take
    For me to break away
    I really don't know, hey
    Cuz my heart and my mind are in battle

    Lovin' you's like running, running on the line
    It's like I'm chasing down the lovin' there's no finish line in sight
    I just keep on running, running on the line
    And you wonder why I'm so damn tired all the time

    I keep on running
    (keep running, I keep running, keep running, I keep running)
    Feels like I'm running, running on the line
    (keep running, I keep running, keep running, I keep running)
    I keep on running
    (keep running, I keep running, keep running, I keep running)
    And you wonder why I'm so damn tired all the time

    Yeah, Yeah
    You got that chrome and purple love
    Running and waving
    Saying nothing can keeps us from it
    That's my woman, but you might fall in love with the youngster
    Hipster, someone taller, baller, richer, and locked down
    Maybe someone of a different, infinite, background terrific
    I wish ya the white gown
    The God, a white veil, rings and roses
    Tiara in your hair like a queen
    I toast ya, told ya, lately I'm bingin' on Mercedes Benzes
    Lot of my lady friends is getting older
    Looking for somebody to cuff em
    Rush into a husband, don't even truly love them
    At they best friend's bridal ceremony
    Jealous and they're lonely, Cryin', but they're phony
    Yo, Fiona, you know me
    Yo we still got time to find real L.O.V.E
    Like the lyrics in the real love songs, the oldies, so keep runnin' fo' me
    If you're out there listening, so Nas don't need a trophy, I need a misses
    Trying to get with that "wife and kids" business
    No just arm candy, my dream is to have a family

    All I ever wanted was a love on top
    All I ever needed was a love that's mine
    Did you ever really love me or is love so blind
    Uh, here I go I'm 'bout to cross the line

    Lovin' you's like running, running on the line
    It's like I'm chasing down the lovin' there's no finish line in sight
    I just keep on running, running on the line
    And you wonder why I'm so damn tired all the time

    I keep on running
    (keep running, I keep running, keep running, I keep running)
    Feels like I'm running, running on the line
    (keep running, I keep running, keep running, I keep running)
    I can't keep running
    (keep running, I keep running, keep running, I keep running)
    And you wonder why I'm so damn tired all the time Writer/s: MELANIE F. HALLIM, NASIR JONES, PRISCILLA RENEA, SALAAM REMI
