New Times, Miami, April 5th, 2010:

Never Too Soon

Lyrics & Music © 2008 New City Lions, Inc.

Heart beats
Takin’ ova'
One kiss sends ‘em butterflies through me
This love can change the world
And ya know we wanna
Its never too soon
Its never too late
So let's not hesitate tonight
(Chorus)
You and me girl
We can make the world
Want to be us
So come with me girl
We can see the world
And make them jealous
This could be our last chance
To live in reckless abandonment
So may I have this dance
Girl take my hand
Its never too soon
Its never too late
So let's not hesitate tonight
(Repeat Chorus)
Whoa-o-o
You know we wanna
Whoa-o-o
Be laughing all the way home
All the way home
You and me girl
We can make the world
So jealous now
So come with me girl
We can see the world
And make them jealous
Heart beats
Takin’ ova'
One kiss sends ‘em butterflies through me
This love can change the world
And ya know we wanna

Right This Time

Lyrics & Music © 2008 New City Lions, Inc.

Comin’ strong
We’ll do it right this time
Making ground
Never been this hard
So now I wear my scars
To prove I’ve come this far
And I'll dream past these evenings
When you and I knew talk was cheap
Too bad your actions never speak
(Chorus)
And I know, I have the right
To live, to love the way I did with you
And I know, that falling down
Is not a good excuse, so
We’re pressing on we’ll do it right now
Baby come on
We’re comin’ strong we’ll do it right this time
Whoa-oo-oa-o-o
Though we hated moving on
We’re gonna make it
Fourth floor whore promise me love
Then betray all of my trust
Your worst won't get the best of us
No
Since we wrote
And since we kissed
I'll take the next flight home for this
So was it worth the risk
(Repeat Chorus)
Right this time
We’ll do it right this time
Pressing on
Right now baby come on
Comin’ strong
Right this time
Pressing on
Right now baby come on
Do it right this time
Do it right this time
Yeah
(Repeat Chorus)
Pressing on
We’ll do it right now baby come on
Comin’ strong we’re gonna do it
We’re gonna make it

Vampires

Lyrics & Music © 2008 New City Lions, Inc.

Have you ever seen the sun shinin’ down
And their skin starts burnin’
So why when the truth starts shinin’ loud
Their feet start runnin’
Look around
Everyone’s runnin’
At this sound
Like vampires
(Chorus)
Lights out baby
Lights out livin’ shady
With your pimped out ‘cedes
Mo money mo honeys
Black out city
Blacked out, all we see
Always sketchin’ out the ladies
Maybe… You’re vampires
You’re vampires
Livin’ large they’re in charge of the world today
But they fear tomorrow
Scared another blood sucker will come their way
It’s all they know
Fly by night
Hiding in shadows
From the light
Like vampires
(Repeat Chorus)
Like vampires
You’re vampires
Where’s the light
Where’s the light
Where’s the light
Where’s the light
You live in darkness
Where'd it go
Whoa-o-o
Where's the light
You live in darkness
Lights out baby
Lights out livin’ shady
With your pimped out ‘cedes
Mo money mo honeys
(Repeat Chorus)

Bright Lights

Bright Lights

Lyrics & Music © 2008 New City Lions, Inc. & A. Wesley

This hype has everyone talking now
Bright lights all flashing through the dark
You can't help meaning what
Meaning what you say
Meaning what you say tonight
Side-swipe, never seen that girl before
Blind-sided, left me wanting more
Can she feel my heart beatin’
Cause she's dancin’ to it
(Chorus)
Baby let's go
We can rock this disco
C'mon let it out
If you’re feelin’ me, sing out
Whoa-o-o
(Repeat Chorus)
Bright eyes, glitter with her boots thigh high
Tonight its love at first sight
High class, don't even ask
She's a hard core chick with a candy-coated outside
Her smile, she carries like kryptonite
Spotlight, she stands out in the crowd
Can she feel my heart beatin’
Cause she's dancin’ to it
(Repeat Chorus x2)
She's movin’ her feet I feel my heart goin’
She's rockin’ that beat I feel my heart goin’
She's movin’ her feet I feel my heart goin’
She's lookin’ at me I feel my heart goin’
I feel it (x9)
She's movin’ her feet I feel my heart goin’
She's rockin’ that beat I feel my heart goin’
She's movin’ her feet I feel my heart goin’
She's lookin’ at me I feel my heart goin’
(Repeat Chorus x2)
