And even in your lowest days
When you're no longer Superman, at least you know you got Lois Lane
But you...

from J. Cole – Runaway Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Lois Lane is the wife of Superman. She had it all, the looks, the intelligence and an expertise in martial arts. She’s the type of woman that every man dreams of.

Cole understands that he has a loving and devoted girl, who’s the only one always there for him to fall back on. Yet, he repays her by running away and never fully committing himself to their relationship.
