Masterpiece

Written By: Wes Cleveland

"Masterpiece"
written by: Wesley Lamar Johnson AKA Wes Cleveland

1st verse
Slow walks in the park,
making love in the dark,
you played a significant part,
a masterpiece to my art,
never cheat on my heart,
you kept the beat from the start,
never trust in some horoscope, to see where we are,
you believe in the most high, you see where we are,
you kept a close eye, open mind, seeing I was far,
and you love me like no one else, seeing I was scarred,
you took everything under account, even counting the odd,
cause if you banking in anyone, you banking in God,
and I believe that, cause knowing me your life gets hard,
you life get barred,
never trusted in anyone I lived my life in a jar,
a caterpillar,
finally blooming, seeing I'm the realest n...a,
next to jigga
the Marine Corps, than trained a killa,
hot raps in my back pack, I'm a rap dealer,
I hustle with Cassidy til your 6's is on them P Millers.............girl

hook:
your my Mona Lisa
Tower of Pieza
my pyramids in Geeza.........baby can't you see to me, your a masterpiece
Your bodies like a work of art
every single part
rather in the light or in the dark...and you belong to me, your a masterpiece

2nd verse
I know our love will always burn like the torch on the liberty,
through high concerns, money and these girls trying to get with me,
can't forget where I'm from, I'll make it known what you've did for me,
like starting each day, with you always forgiving me,
could of gave up on your promise, when you said you won't quit on me,
could of stepped across them lines, at that times you could of tripped on me,
it's them strings you play on your heart like a symphony,
that stirs the oil deep in my soul and gives me energy,
you were sent for me, I carry my cross like Jesus did, on them fine art Giclees,
I thank God for his creation of Adam,
cause your the rib that he took from me then created my madame,
I see you, and see a beautiful landscape,
and when I feel your love, I feel the brush of my handsmate,
trust your love, this is one thing I can state,
your love is overflowing like the flood I can't stand straight,

hook:
baby, Your my Mona Lisa,
Tower of Pieza,
my pyramids in Geeza,....baby can't you see to me, your a masterpiece
Your bodies like a work of art,
every single part,
rather in the light or in the dark, and you belong to me, your a masterpiece

3rd verse
Call me Davinci, I study proportions,
when you lay across my bed you make me study you often,
if we were married, how could I think of divorcing,
cause in the picture of your frame, I feel safe there's no caution,
no matter how mad we get, we fix our problems that's awesome,
I'm your sculptor that you made with full price there's no auction,
your interior,
makes you superior,
because you stretch your love out wide to every area,
I got to thank you for that,
cause the way you paint yourself, there was you to look at,
them directions to your heart, there was no better map,
I can smile once again, while my heart beats with claps,
and bad days, can now rest in peace,
cause your someone I can trust, so I rest with peace,
I asked him and he did it, he brought the best to me,
cause here you are standing here for me my masterpiece,

hook:
Your my Mona Lisa,
Tower of Pieza,
my pyramids in Geeza.....baby can't you see to me, your my masterpiece,
Your bodies like a work of art,
every single part,
rather in the light or in the dark, and you belong to me, your a masterpiece

The King

Written By: Wes Cleveland

1st verse:

Im the king,
when I step in the ring,
real talk,when I swing my opponents get sent to a dream,
the way they had starts twitching, you can tell its a scene,
real ugly and it's murderous, them dudes start to scream,
and they aint coming back, (echo:coming back) the way that they left,
nobody will, at a place when they're so close to death,
you see his arm in the air, he's hoping now for the ref,
and his parents in the crowd are hoping now for the best,
now Im waiting in my corner and Im holding my breathe,
cause I'm looking at his sister and she's holding her chest,
Im thinking! EY! What did the champ done done,
for me to prove to this world that my punch weighs a ton,
I should of held back a lil a couple times when I swung,
hearing he has punctured lungs,
Im hearing something Ive done,
Now Im praying out of guilt and calling up to the one,
cause I don't want to live with the thought that I killed someone son, so...
hook:
God save me from this way, god save me from this way, god save me from this way that I live EY! EY!
God save me from this way, god save me from this way, god save me from this way that I give EY! EY!
EY!
It's only me in this fight, yeah! uh huh!
Only me in this life, yeah! uh huh!
Do I do this out of spite, nah! uh! uh!
or do i do this for the fight, yeah!

2nd verse:

I was raised in these streets as a brawler,
and I learned from my cousins in the South how to squal up
in these streets man, man they taught me how to ball up,
cause a dude out, while beating him down and how to foul up,
if things got hectic, got jumped, how to call up,
ask for strength that I need before you see the Rottweiler,
they did'nt know what they were turning me into a mauler,
cause Im hurting dudes even when jumped, I hear them hauler, EY!
They say Im Ludacris when throwing these bows man,
it's real crystal clear without a ball Ive been chosen,
ya boi so cold, in the ring I leave frozen,
and outside of the ring in these streets I fear no man,
they callme GF, good fighter, good form man,
they call you blue print, cause you's a part of the floor plan,
and you don't want to meet the back part of my forehand,
cause your grill will be next on the line to George Foreman,
hook:
God save me from this way, god save me from this way, god save me from this way that I live EY! EY!
God save me from this way, god save me from this way, god save me from this way that I give EY! EY!
EY!
It's only me in this fight, yeah! uh huh!
Only me in this life, yeah! uh huh!
Do I do this out of spite, nah! uh! uh!
or do i do this for the fight, yeah!
3rd verse

Round 3 you better pray for me and pray for,
that you stay away from me,
aint too many boxers on this stage with me,
cause I take belts, ain't nobody taking from me,
cause I weigh self, no one is keeping pace with me,
so facing me, man thats pure bravery
to escape from me,
it must because Im wavering,
so hating me, it must because you hate Marines,
you hate my team,
it really don't matter to me,
cause one on one in any place no one is badder than me,
in the streets in the ring, no one is staggering me,
cause at the end of the fight no one is standing with me,
to stand up to me, is crazy thats one thing that you might know,
hit you with the body,
let everybody know,
how I kill the body slow,
no this is not a show,
times up its time to go,
knock out you're on the floor,

Sets usually depend on location and night of performance. I usually get 15 minutes when opening for someone. Within 15 minutes I can knockout 3-4 songs. When I'm headlining a show. I get 45 minutes to an hour. Which gives me 9 to 12 songs.
