Lyrics

Weakest Person

Written By: Brotherofman

When we met I liked you
Here’s a girl who will be true
Your selflessness later came through
No future just abuse

The weakest person in the world
The weakest person in the world
The weakest person in the world
The weakest person in the world

I needed to talk to you
But you ran from me always to
Like a little girl who’s scared all through
Nothing left get over you

The weakest person in the world
The weakest person in the world
The weakest person in the world
The weakest person in the world
The weakest person in the world is you
The weakest person you know its true
The weakest person in the world is you
The weakest person in the world is you

When I think about you
All your shit and your attitude
There’s no escape and no way through
Just a matter of hating you

The weakest person in the world
The weakest person in the world
The weakest person in the world
The weakest person in the world
The weakest person in the world is you
The weakest person you know its true
The weakest person in the world is you
The weakest person in the world is you
The weakest person in the world is you
The weakest person you know its true
The weakest person in the world is you

The weakest person
The weakest person
The weakest person
The weakest person is you

Missing You

Written By: Brotherofman

Turn around hold my hand
Want to be your man, I’m missing you
Come here now, I want to kiss
Your sweet tender lips, I’m missing you

Oh Lord let this night end
These sorrows back again
Let me take you by the hand
And tomorrow we’ll start up again

Thoughts of your smiling face
Takes me to a warm friendly place, I’m missing you
Anywhere, anyhow
I’ll be there no doubt, I’m missing you

Oh Lord let this night end
These sorrows back again
Let me take you by the hand
And tomorrow we’ll start up again

Away

Written By: Brotherofman

Darling when I get too near, I fill with fear
I want to be, flying free
I want to feel, if your love is real
If that was so, you would not go

You bring me upside down
When you’re not around
You either kiss my face or run
Away

Darling when I let you see inside of me
When your away my life decays
When you look at me so intimately
Makes me feel your love is real

Sad Inside

Written By: Brotherofman

Over hills I travel with you
In search of love between me and you
I could not find my peace of mind
now I travel on alone without you

These aren’t tears in my eyes
Must be something sad inside
You should know I don’t cry
Must be something sad

How do you know when to walk away
Best friends once not today
I struggle to find my peace of mind
I hope some day I find you waiting for me and there to stay

These aren’t tears in my eyes
Must be something sad inside
You should know I don’t cry
Must be something sad

Sad inside, sad inside, sad inside
Sad inside

Should have known to stay away
But I felt so close know I feel the pain

Sad inside, sad inside, sad inside
Sad inside

Time To

Written By: Brotherofman

I remember when we first met
You shook my hand and smiled
You said in a friendly voice
You’re someone that I like

We started going out
And started making out
It was your very first time
It was a beautiful night

It’s time to say I love you
It’s time to say I care
It’s time to travel to you
I’ll always be there

But lately things aren’t going
Exactly how I planned
You started bloody seeing
A bone surgical man

Your mother's wacko crazy
Your sisters screwed up to
Both you and your daddy
Stop lying tell the truth

It’s time to say I love you
It’s time to say I care
It’s time to travel to you
I’ll always be there
It’s time to say I love you
It’s time to say I care
It’s time to travel to you
I’ll always be there

Too late to say I love you
Too late to say I care
Too late to travel to you
I’m already there
Too late to say I love you
Too late to say I care
Too late to travel to you
I’m already there

It’s time to say I love you
It’s time to say I care
It’s time to travel to you
I’ll always be there
It’s time to say I love you
It’s time to say I care
It’s time to travel to you
I’ll always be there

Yeah yeah yeah, I’ll always be there
Yeah yeah yeah, I’ll always be there
Yeah yeah yeah, I’ll always be there

Miss America

Written By: Brotherofman

Miss America

I loved a girl from Baltimore
And she loved me
We were living down Miami way
Right by the University

Can you tell me Miss America
How you’re so true
Can you tell me Miss America
How you’re always so right too

Can you tell me that you love me
Can you tell me you respect me too
Can you come here and hold me
Can we make love too

Can you tell me Miss America
How you’re so true
Can you tell me Miss America
How you’re always so right too

Set up a company in Indiana
I was the president too
I asked the government for funding
They walk away from me and you

Can you tell me Miss America
How you’re so true
Can you tell me Miss America
How you’re always so right too
Can you tell me Miss America
How you’re so true
Can you tell me Miss America
How you’re always so right too

Dispose of You

Written By: Brotherofman

When you see me, I turn blind
You knock me over, and down to size
In and out of my life, controlling religious kind of type
I can’t stand this anymore, go chase your money you money whore

Don’t listen
Don’t cry
Don’t think so
Here’s why
Dispose of You
Dispose of You
Dispose of You
Dispose of You

When you let me, into your life
Dangerous tangle, love at a price
You don’t have to put me down, walk away or stick around
Please don’t kick me in the eye, it’s time you left me goodbye

Don’t listen
Don’t cry
Don’t think so
Here’s why
Dispose of You
Dispose of You
Dispose of You
Dispose of You

Don’t listen
Don’t cry
Don’t think so
Here’s why
Dispose of You
Dispose of You
Dispose of You
Dispose of You
Dispose of You
Dispose of You
Dispose of You
Dispose of You

Americanzed

Written By: Brotherofman

I want to see, your ego pleased
What’s good for you, is good for me
Do you know, I’ve got a mind of my own
Apparently no, brainwashed conformism way to go

Americanized, Americanized, I think I got Americanized
Americanized, Americanized, I think I got Americanized

When it’s near, it’s very near
When you turn, you should turn slow
It’s up to you, to play advantage rules
Then you know, society’s hold never lets go

Americanized, Americanized, I think I got Americanized
Americanized, Americanized, I think I got Americanized
Americanized, Americanized, I think we got Americanized
Americanized, Americanized, I think we got Americanized

I can’t play, your mind games
I won’t play, your predictable way
Don’t you know, I’ve got a mind of my own
Apparently no, brainwashed conformism way to go

Americanized, Americanized, I think I got Americanized
Americanized, Americanized, I think I got Americanized
Americanized, Americanized, I think we got Americanized
Americanized, Americanized, I think we got Americanized
