Eric Benet - Runnin' Lyrics




Runnin used to be the way I pass my time
All over town just to see what I could find
Every now and then I find some company
But every kiss...
I try to tell myself that it was just a game
I'd run again to try and ease that lonely pain
No matter where I travel there I'd be stuck in those walls of skin call me

And I was just runnin' to find somethin true
And I just be runnin with nothing to prove
And I can't go runnin and nothing to show
They all saw me runnin and said there he go

You cut my eye one day when I was on a run
So how you make me feel my life had just begun
I've seen the last of all my roamin and days
'Cause I grew from you I've never run oh babe

Now you got me runnin to get home to you
And my heart keeps running when I think of things you do
And I full be runnin to the one else no one
They all see me runnin and say that love is for sure oh yeah
I'm not hesitating no and as soon as work is done yeah
As fast as my legs can carry me yeah
Mhmh yeah life ain't complicated oh no
When you got only one, one heart one joy
One place to be

And now I'm watching people runnin all around
Chasing after things I will just run them down
Life is so much better if they change their way
I wish I could tell them but you know I can't stand

'Cause I gotta get runnin and get home to you, gotta get home
And my heart keep runnin when I think of things you do,
Think about the things you do
And I won't be runnin, no one else, no one no more
And now see me runnin and say that's love for sure

I gotta get runnin and get home to you, gotta get home
And my heart keep runnin when I think of things you do,
And I won't be runnin, no one else, no one no more
And now see me runnin and say that's love for sure
And all see me running and say that's love for sure
They all see me runnin and say that's love for sure

  22. Glitzycutz

    Runnin used to be the way I pass my time
    All over town just to see what I could find
    Every now and then I find some company
    But every kiss, temporary
    I try to tell myself that it was just a game
    I'd run again to try and ease that lonely pain
    No matter where I travel there I'd be, stuck in those walls of skin called me

    And I was just runnin' to find somethin true
    And I just be runnin with nothing to prove
    And I kept on runnin and nothing to show
    They all saw me runnin and said there he go

    You caught my eye one day when I was on a run
    Somehow you made me feel my life had just begun
    I've seen the last of all my roamin days
    'Cause I knew from you I'd never run again

    Now you've got me runnin to get home to you
    And my heart keeps running when I think of things you do
    And I won't be runnin to no one else no more
    When yall see me runnin, say that's love for sure oh yeah
    I'm not hesitating no and as soon as work is done yeah
    As fast as my legs can carry me yeah
    Mhmh yeah life ain't complicated oh no
    When you got only one, one heart one joy
    One place to be

    And now I'm watching people runnin all around
    Chasing after things that'll just run them down
    Life is so much better if they change their way
    I wish I could tell them but you know I can't stay

    'Cause I gotta get runnin and get home to you, gotta get home
    And my heart keeps runnin when I think of things you do,
    And I won't be runnin, no one else, no one no more
    When yall see me runnin, say that's love for sure

    I gotta get runnin and get home to you, gotta get home
    And my heart keep runnin when I think of things you do,
    And I won't be runnin, no one else, no one no more
    When yall see me runnin, say that's love for sure
    when yall see me running, say that's love for sure
    They all see me runnin and say that's love for sure
