Runaway Lyrics

And I always find, yeah, I always find something wrong
You been putting up with my shit just way too long
I'm so gifted at finding 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...

    The whole song meaning is a reflection about Kanye and the public eye. The reason the ending is muffled and distorted is it's the public view of what he is saying. They know he is speaking but not really know what he is really saying.

    I love how there are so many interpretations of this song. Take it how you understand it and run with it! I love music and how it makes you think!

    He is admitting his faults and habits. He cant really explain why he does these things to her because she is a good girl. So he tells the girl Runaway instead of helping him but there is no way he will change. He will hurt him but he understands. He really wants the girl to accept him and he will eventually change but it will take time. He is disappointed at himself but he cant control his devious behavior with females. He is not a relationship type of guy because he always find something wrong. He is addicted to woman but cannot commit to them.

    He definitely criticizes himself in his song, that is obvious! Furthermore he is warning someone (supposably his girlfriend) of himself. He even advises her to runaway from him because of his bad habits!

    I think this song is about Kanye reflecting on all the crap and sh*t he has done. He does say :
    "Let's have toast for the d-bags,
    let's have a toast for the a-holes,\
    let's have a toast for the scumbags,
    everyone of them that i know,
    baby i got a plan,RUNAWAY as fast as you can,
    [Run away from me baby, run away!]
    It is pretty obvious that he is referring to himself as a d-bag,a-hole and a scumbag. he is pretty upset with himself and feels depressed.That is why he is warning everyone close to him to just "runaway" from him because he believes he can't change...
    the first part of the song: "
    I sent this girl a picture of my ..."
    That is obviously the ct of a d-bag,a-hole and scumbag..
    Not that i agree with him, sure he did some shit in his life, but the fact that he is admitting his fault is a good thing. RESPECT!

    Kanye reflects about all the stupid crap he's done with his life and he wants to get away from everyone, so when he says "let's have a toast for the d-bags" he means let's just applaud them for all there crap sarcastically. When Kanye says "he was never much of a romantic, could never take the intimacy,And I know it did damage
    'Cause the look in your eyes is killing me
    I guess you knew another vantage
    'Cause you could blame me for everything
    And I don't know how I'ma manage
    If one day you just up and leave" meaning he can settle for his best and if you can't accept it then goodbye.
