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
