  • I'm sittin on my porch watchin' the law
    As they ride past in they patrol cars
    So tell me why I feel like the enemy
    They supposed to be here protectin' me
    I might have went too far
    Helpin' to contribute to makin' their job hard
    Servin' fiends like these people ain't no kin to me
    I can't believe I'm out here killin' my community
    If you knew how far I came (far I came)
    From where I am and where I used to be (where I used to be)
    I don't want it, you can tell by the look at me
    This gangsta life ain't no longer in me

    And I'm tired of the runnin', tired of the runnin'
    Tired of the runnin', runnin' from the law
    Baby you gotta believe me
    Said I'm tired of the runnin', tired of the runnin'
    Tired of the runnin', runnin' from the law
    Baby ya gotta believe me

    I know there's things I could've changed girl
    I know there's things I could've done a lot better
    Instead I'm in the streets tryin' to make that cheddar
    Thinkin' in my mind that you gon' be there forever
    I know I could've let it all go (let it all go)
    But I was thinkin' it would make life better (make life better)
    Instead I'm sittin' in this cell writin' this letter
    Thought I wouldn't get caught cause I was way too clever
    I learned there's no one to catch ya when ya fallin'
    And they'll be no one to hear you when you're callin'
    Do you know what it's like to wake up in the mornin'
    While you're starvin' you're hearin' bugs crawlin'
    Reminiscin' on them days you was walkin'
    With pretty women on your arm while you're flossin'
    Thankful that I didn't end up in a coffin
    Somethin' we see too often

    And I'm tired of the runnin', tired of the runnin'
    Tired of the runnin', runnin' from the law
    Baby you gotta believe me
    Said I'm tired of the runnin', tired of the runnin'
    Tired of the runnin', runnin' from the law
    Baby ya gotta believe me

    Said I'm tired
    Said I'm tired
    I said I'm tired
    So tired, yeah

    And I'm tired of the runnin', tired of the runnin'
    Tired of the runnin', runnin' from the law
    Baby you gotta believe me
    Said I'm tired of the runnin', tired of the runnin'
    Tired of the runnin', runnin' from the law
    Baby ya gotta believe me
