"When i'm with You"

Written By: Cane Murphy

Lyrics to the Song "When i'm with you"
Written by Thomas P. Murphy (CANE MURPHY)

Hook Goes first.

And When i'm with you its real..
when i'm with you , i know its real boy..
when i'm with you.. when i'm with you boy..
i know it's real, i know it's real, i know it's real forever..

1st Verse -

in front of building 18 & 20 i'd Look.
amongst graff heads and hustlers reading a book.
Steven king she was reading in her army jacket.
Dad just passed of asthma , hardly passed it.
Sister set it up so we can talk in the lobby.
You know my graff name , but my real name's tommy.
First time i held your hand, then i'm wishing that i'd kiss ya.
Ben said get with her, throwing up MEKANIZM stickers.
Tehn he said cause she's a virgin that's the reason why i'd get her.
turn around and that's my cousin and he tried to hook up with her.
At the board walk under the stars, chill.
Grill a fillin "blank" loves catt in ParkHill.
Even came bombing with me in these areas.
Said stop selling weed , i'm a take care of ya.
I didn't go throug the wind shield like Kanye.
Had a spine fusion, screws is on me.
With the oxycontin , i heard ya mom say.
You got my daughter selling drugs, tricks my mind played.

Hook Repeats.

2nd Verse.

Said your more like you and your glad you missed him.
You do what lorazapam does by listening.
Even stuck around when the E shit "exctasy" switched him.
Morala sowed the claw back together and stiched him.
Between the two towers you kissed him. stayed with him-
when he couldn't walk or wipe his on ass when shittin.
You out my circle , proposition my girl.
Try to take the only thing besides rap in this world.
Sorry , I love you, good bye.
And i know for a fact , GOD put us back together to try.
You know me and you rocking "Mario Kart" .
And we never finished "Blade" , so we'd start if from start.
Your my best friend, said you know me.
You a big boy when it comes to E&J v.s.o.p
Really wish that i met your dad.
I heard i got a lot of qualitites same as he had.
You my ewe lamb, i got love, i'm gonna care for ya.
As if it was your father that had handed me was there for ya.

Hook Repeats.

3rd Verse.

"Paid in Full" Remix was no joke, see the smoke.
Shutting down the clubs, coming home to you still broke.
Downing O.E Slowly, depressed.
I'm popping vivarin, writing after shows, can't rest.
Sorry for the times that we fought, I'm gone out.
I'd threaten that you'd have to move back to your mom's house.
On E "Exctasy" when you touched his hand.
Broke my heart , but i should never bring up the past.
Cause i know your missing love from your mom and your sister.
So i turn around , encourage you, hug ya , kiss ya.
You'd text me "Puppy miss You, come home".
Did i say how much i appreciate you working alone.
Did i tell you that your sexy ,puppy girl and when you met me.
And we kissed it was the very first time up on the Ferry-
"party boat" you never left me , it got heavy but you kept me.
If you check off in the box "will you go out with me?" you get me..
