Whats up? It’s 2Pac. Can you get away?
Let me come swoop you up.
You know I got a man.
I know you got a man
But he ain’t gon’ mind if I take you out.
Of course he gon’ mind.
Let me take you to lunch.
I’ll have you back before he even get home;
Before anybody see.
I can’t. (Aw c’mon!)
He ain’t gon’ let me.


Oh alright.
What’s wrong with your eye?
Why you got on glasses?

Ever since I met ya I could beat depression
It’s like your man don’t understand, all he does is stress ya
I can see your state of misery from the introduction
Ain’t bout no sucking and touching, just harmless discussion
Maybe we can see a better way, find a brighter day
Late night phone conversations, would that be OK?
I don’t wanna take up all your time, be the next in line
Tell me your size, let me find you things with you in mind
I can see you’re cautious and I’m careful not to scare you
But anticipation of love making
Got you shaking when I’m standing near you
News of precision will prepare ya
In case you get scared, just ask the man in the mirror
Now the picture’s getting clearer all he does is hit you hard
I tell you to leave, and you tell me keep my faith in God
I don’t understand, I just wanna bring ya home
I wonder should I leave you alone and find a woman of my own
All the homies tell me that you don’t deserve it
I contemplate, but in my heart I know you worth it
Tell me can you get away?

Ebony, can you get away?
C’mon, let’s go, can you get away?
Can you get away?

So much pressure in the air
I know, I know
And I can’t get away
Just for a little while love
I’m not happy here
I know it’s hard but, can you get away?
So much pressure in the air
Let’s go man, get up outta there
Can you get away?
And I can’t get away
Do you love him?
I’m not happy here
Do you love that man?

Could it be my destiny to be lonely?
And checking for these hoochies that be on me cause they phony
But you was different, I got no need to be suspicious
Cause I can tell, my life with you would be delicious
The way you lick your lips and shake your hips got me addicted
I’m sitting here hoping that we can find some way to kick it
Even though I got your digits gotta struggle to resist it
Slowly advance and miss my chance not to miss it
You blow me kisses
When he ain’t looking, now your heart’s taken
My only wish is that you change your mind and he get shook
Wanna take you there but you scared to follow, come see tomorrow
Hoping I can take you through the pain and sorrow
Let you know I care, that someone’s there for your struggle
Depend on me, when you have needs or there’s trouble
I wanna give you happiness and maybe even more
I told you before, no time to waste we can hook up at the store
Can you get away?

So much pressure in the air
I know it is
And I can’t get away
Yeah you can
I’m not happy here
You ain’t happy huh, can you get away?
So much pressure in the air
I know is he beating on you?
And I can’t get away
Did he punch you?
I’m not happy here
Throwing you around the house?

I see you reminiscing and I hope you listening
In the position to pressure and offer competition
Me and you, was meant to be my destiny, no longer lonely
Cause now it’s on for you and me, all I can see
A happy home, that’s my fantasy
But my reality is problems with your man and me
What can I do? Don’t wanna lose you to the sucker
Cause if he touch ya, I got some drama for that busta
Don’t wanna rush ya, but make your mind up fast
Nobody knows, on who controls will it last, before I ask
I hope you see that I’m sincere, and even if you
Stay with him today I’m still here
I refuse to give up, cause I believe in what we share
You’re living in prison and what he’s givin can’t compare
Cause everything I feel for you I wanna let you know
Passion it be yours and I’ll never let you go
Tell me can you get away?

So much pressure in the air
Can’t get away, why?
And I can’t get away
I’m not happy here
Let me take you away
All I really know, can you get away?
So much pressure in the air
And I can’t get away
Course you can get away
I’m not happy here
If you really wanted to get away
You could get away

You ain’t got to go through all this drama and this stress
With this old half a man, ya know what I’m sayin?
I ain’t trying to put you in a position
Where you gotta give up your lifestyle for everything
You need but now, he ain’t even takin care of you
He beating on you and shit, look how you look
She motherfucking wanna be with that nigga, ya know what I’m sayin?
Shake that sucker to the left
Let me show you what this life is really about
Ya know what I’m saying? You need to be on first class
Need to be going to Hawaii, seeing the world
Seeing what this world got to offer you
Not going to, ya know what I’m sayin’?
The emergency room, getting stitches
Cause this nigga done got jealous
Don’t cry, it’s all good

Can you take me from here?
Shake that man, get away
Can you take me from here?
I am unhappy here
And I need you to show me love
Because it’s so much pressure now
And I need to get away
