Runnin – Pharrell Williams lyrics

Lyrics Pharrell Williams – Runnin

Summertime in Virginia was a oven.
All the kids eating ice cream with their cousins.
I was studyin’ while you was playing the dozens (dozens).
Don’t act like you was there when you wasn’t.(runnin)

Runnin’ from the man (man) runnin’ from the badge (badge).
Don’t act like you was there when you wasn’t.
Runnin’ toward our plans (plans) and the judges hands (hands).
Don’t act like you was there when you wasn’t.

I know they say you crawl for your own.
But in my mind I already jog.
If I stand still I cannot get far.
They want the Moon, I’m on Mars.

Sometime my mind dives deep.
When I’m runnin’.
I don’t want no free ride.
I’m just sick and tired of runniiin’.
Some nights I cry.
Cause I can see the day comin’.
Together we fight.
Oh, but no more runniiin’.

You and I are not different from each other.
Shut our eyes, when we slumber I see numbers.
Black and white, we’re computers, I am colored.
Don’t act like you was there when you wasn’t.

From runnin’ to exams (exams) to jobs for a man (man).
Don’t act like you was there when you wasn’t.
In the law of the land (land) the women were often banned (banned).
Don’t act like you was there when you wasn’t.

I know they say you crawl for your own.
But in my mind I already jog.
If I stand still I cannot get far.
They want the Moon, I’m on Mars.

Sometime my mind dives deep.
When I’m runniiin’.
I don’t want no free ride.
I’m just sick and tired of runniiin’.
Some nights I cry.
Cause I can see the day comin’.
Together we fight.
Oh, but no more runniiin’.

I know they say you crawl for your own.
But in my mind I already jog.
If I stand still I cannot get far.
They want the Moon, I’m on Mars.

Sometime my mind dives deep.
When I’m runnin’.
I don’t want no free ride.
I’m just sick and tired of runnin’.
Some nights I cry.
Cause I can see the day comin’.
Together we fight.
Oh, but no more runninnn.
