Xscape - The Runaround Lyrics

But you been sleepin' and you're creepin', babe,
But you been creepin' and you're sleepin', baby.

[Verse One (LaTocha):]
It's Friday night and I've been freakin' out,
900 times, I know I called your house,
So many times your momma cursed me out,
But I'm not sorry.
Saturday morning, I ain't slept at all,
I smelled her perfume and your alcohol,
They say that you and her have had a ball,
Don't you dare lie to me.

I know I'm gettin' the runaround,
I know that you sleep around,
So don't try and play it down,
I know you're givin' it, I know she's gettin' it.
[Repeat x2]

[Verse Two (Kandi):]
I grabbed my keys and I jumped in my ride,
I may be hurt but I ain't gonna cry,
Just wanna find out what you did last night,
Before I leave you.
I found her number and I know her name,
I gotta front this girl, make her explain,
I can't believe she dipped into my thing,
Yet she's getting over.

[Repeat Chorus]

[Bridge (Kandi):]
It took a lot for me to give you all my loving, yeah,
And just to think I gave you everything for nothing.
I tried my best to satisfy you,
All the times that I stood right by you,
I think that I'll be better on my own, baby.

Oh baby,
I know your givin' it, I know she's gettin' it.

But you been sleepin' and you're creepin' babe
But you been creepin' and you're sleepin' baby

[Repeat Chorus to fade]

[Break (LaTocha):]
Now I can't believe that you did this to me,
Well, you better leave.
You go tell what's her name that it isn't a game,
Boy you messed up your thang.

  51. Q Gee

    After their reality show last night. I️ was saying this should be first on the set list. My bf was like what song is that. Omg I’m getting old. Lol


    I was thinking the same thing thing. They opened the door with "Feels So Good" (awful choice..)..thye shouyld have opened it with The Runaround or I Will First. Some artists will take chances and perform songs they havent performed live before to enhance the audience.

  52. Khalalah Aye

    Good album

    LaTocha Scott tried so hard to outsing Kandi..but she couldn't. she could never could.

    Mocha S

    Eriq7001 nah tocha could sing better than kandi

    China Johnson

    Eriq7001 she can sing better than kandi tiny and tamika but they usually make the songs they sing second lead on for me I think tosha thinks all those all over the place runs or having the last line in the song makes her out shine the other girls but they always come through in the parts they got

    General Cornrow Wallace

    😆Girl,That Part!

  79. Ciara Fulton

  84. Ms Iam Everythang

    The Run Around doesn't only apply to somebody creeping it also can be that person giving you the run around about being with you, caring for you, wanting you...ect

    Niama Cathey

    Ms Iam Everythang rs ,ppl play games too much

    Ms Iam Everythang

    +Niama Cathey yep

    Simone Tyson

    Women do the same itsh thou, am one long enough to know, "Imma call you", "I do like you, but I be working and going to school, and church, so you know " Lies!!! When someone really likes you, everything else goes on pause, same thing with a man. Do not give people the run-around, be honest.

  85. Sha-Li Perkins

    This is just one of those songs that you can relate to because I fell at some point in ur life you have gotten the runaround.

  86. Hassan Bell
