Lyrics

The One

Written By: Brian Lanese

Realize I changed a bit
In this game I broke all your rules
Let me tell you one last time
Don't Fight
Because I won

Gonna be the one
To set you up
Gonna be the one
Who gets the last laugh
Gonna be the one
To watch you fall
I'll be the one

Yo you should of expected this
You can't muzzle my vow
Let karma's halo shine its light
It's my turn to strike

Now I got what's coming to you
And you gone get what you deserve
When Big Panda goes extinct
I'll still be on the top

Like L screaming "Mama Said Knock You Out"
A cunning fighter only has to use his heart
This type of passion breeds followers sucka
And that's what sets us apart

Gonna be the one
To set you up
Gonna be the one
Who gets the last laugh
Gonna be the one
To watch you fall
I'll be the one

You know you can't be me son
So don't try to beat me
You can never beat me son
So don't try to be me
You know you can't be me son
So don't try to beat me
Cuz you'd have to be me

Gonna be the one
To set you up
Gonna be the one
Who gets the last laugh
Gonna be the one
To watch you fall
I'll be the one
Gonna be the one
To set you up
Gonna be the one
Who gets the last laugh
Gonna be the one
To watch you fall
I'll be the one

I'll be the one who gets the last laugh

Little Black Bra

Written By: Brian Lanese © 2008

I've always felt me life was half full
Building bridges over rivers of pain
I've always made my way to the wrong road
And now I'm by myself and walk alone
Keep your distance cuz I'll
Weep your soul right from mine
Or cede to you till I can't see

You trip me up with all your falls
So sexy in your little black bra
Keep your distance cuz my heart still weeps you
So sexy in your little black bra
On the floor I'd watch it fall
Let me have one last breath with you

If stealing hearts was a crime
Then you stole mine tons of times
Broke my pain in two
How wrong I was about you
Confronting death vandalized my soul
In the end I guess we'll know
If it's really there I'd be pleasantly surprised
I'll do my best to save you
And show you all that I could
How highs the climb up to you

You trip me up with all your falls
So sexy in your little black bra
Keep your distance cuz my heart still weeps you
So sexy in your little black bra
On the floor I watch it fall
Let me have one last breath with you

Randall's Parking Lot

Written By: Brian Lanese © 2008

Again with you I see your pain
A part of me still wants
Perverse my tongue when I ask you
To let me stomp your box
Let me take you back
To where it all starts
Let me take you back
To Randall's parking lot

Let me take you back
To where it all began
Let me take you back
Oh to the funky start
Let me take you back
To Randall's parking lot

Did bombs go off on that day
With chemistry we sparked
Inside your skirt when I touched you
Your pretty pink heart just popped
Let me tell you that
You swirl a hell of a tongue
Let me tell you that
Oh girl, you make me wanna come

Let me take you back
To where it all began
Let me take you back
Oh to the funky start
Let me take you back
To Randall's parking lot

Hey Now

Written By: Brian Lanese © 2008

There she goes again
Severed by the light
The break of a day
She's been out all night
Rupturing with fear
Her roads to tough to drive
I just light her way
But it's her fight

There she goes again
Breaking hearts that mend
I'll tell you once again
That she don't pretend
She'll break right through your vice

Attacking me with hate
My defense was late
Crushing my ambitions
With her mindless decisions
She's so quick to point
But it's my gun
Seducing me with her sexy persuasion

There she goes again
Breaking hearts that mend
I'll tell you once again
That she don't pretend
She'll break right through the vice

Hey Now
There she goes again
Breaking hearts that mend
I'll tell you once again
That she don't pretend

Hey Now
What gives you the right to take me for a ride
When I was the one who stood beside your side

I don't know where I'm going
But I know I'm on my way
Away from the place
That hurts me everyway

Well there she goes again
Breaking hearts that mend
I'll tell you once again
That she don't pretend
Alright, alright, alright
She'll break right through your vice

Hey Now
There she goes again
Breaking hearts that mend
I'll tell you once again
That she don't pretend

Hey Now
What gives you the right to take me for a ride
When I was the one who stood beside your side

I'd follow you anywhere
Just know I'm not afraid
Let me drink your beauty
Let me taste your charade

Hey Now
There she goes again
Breaking hearts that mend
I'll tell you once again
That she don't pretend

Hey Now
What gives you the right to take me for a ride
When I was the one who stood beside your side

Stood beside your side

I lost to you again
