Kanye West - Runaway (Video Version) ft. Pusha T





I love this video, mainly because I've been in 3 weddings this year and the last one, I was the maid of honor and I would have loved to stand up and raise my glass to the douchbags!

The music video and the lyrics match as far as setting is concerned. He's making a toast about what he wishes he could say to her.

What's bizarre about this video is the random ballet dancers. I know Kanye has a love of classical dance and the ballet dancers resemble those in Swan Lake, but I don't understand why they were specifiaclly chosen for this piece. It does, however, create a nice counterpoint between the song and the video, which I enjoy.

Lyrics:

And I always find, yeah, I always find somethin' wrong
You been puttin' up wit' my shit just way too long
I'm so gifted at findin' what I don't like the most
So I think it's time for us to have a toast

Let's have a toast for the douchebags
Let's have a toast for the assholes
Let's have a toast for the scumbags
Every one of them that I know
Let's have a toast for the jerkoffs
That'll never take work off
Baby, I got a plan
Run away fast as you can

She find pictures in my email
I sent this girl a picture of my dick
I don't know what it is with females
But I'm not too good with that shit
See I could have me a good girl
And still be addicted to them hoodrats
And I just blame everything on you
At least you know that's what I'm good at

And I always find
Yeah I always find
Yeah, I always find somethin' wrong
You been puttin' up with my shit just way too long
I'm so gifted at findin' what I don't like the most
So I think it's time for us to have a toast

Let's have a toast for the douchebags
Let's have a toast for the assholes
Let's have a toast for the scumbags
Every one of them that I know
Let's have a toast to the jerkoffs
That'll never take work off
Baby I got a plan
Run away fast as you can

Run away from me, baby
Run away
Run away from me, baby
Run away
When it starts to get crazy
Just run away
Baby I got a plan
Run away as fast as you can

Run away from me, baby
Run away
Run away from me, baby
Run away
When it start to get crazy
Why can't she just run away
Baby I got a plan
Run away as fast as you can

(Pusha T)

24/7/365, pussy stays on my mind
I-I-I-I did it, all right, all right, I admit it
Now pick your next move, you could leave or live wit' it
Ichabod Crane with that muthafuckin top off
Split and go where?
Back to wearin' knockoffs... haha
Knock it off, Neiman's, shop it off
Let's talk over mai tais, waitress, top it off
Hoes like vulchers wanna fly in your Freddy loafers
You can't blame 'em, they ain't never seen Versace sofas
Every bag, every blouse, every bracelet
Comes with a price tag, baby, face it
You should leave if you can't accept the basics
Plenty hoes in a baller nigga matrix
Invisibly set, the Rolex is faceless
I'm just young, rich & tasteless
P!

(Kanye)

Never was much of a romantic
I could never take the intimacy
And I know I did damage
Cause the look in your eyes is killin me
I guess you're new in an advantage
Cause you can blame me fore everything
And I don't know how I'ma manage
If one day you just up and leave

And I always find
Yeah I always find somethin' wrong
You been puttin' up with my shit just way too long
I'm so gifted at findin' what I don't like the most
So I think it's time for us to have a toast

Let's have a toast for the douchebags,
Let's have a toast for the assholes,
Let's have a toast for the scumbags,
Every one of them that I know
Let's have a toast for the jerkoffs
That'll never take work off
Baby, I got a plan
Run away fast as you can
