Track Name: Brooklyn Burning
Brooklyn Burning

i woke up in Canarsie
last stop, no shoes
and two shades of lips on my left cheek
wait til you know you've got it
that's when you walk away
wait til you know you've got it
live to love another day

what happened at that party
i fell in love
then broke my heart more than once it seems
wait til you know you've got it
ya already know I'll stay
wait til you know you've got it
silly girls and the games they play

it don't matter where the wind blows
Brooklyn Burning in the summer sun
have you been sleeping in the same clothes
we'll be dancing til the morning comes
cuz everybody else knows
that we don't got no money, money
but our feet know where the beat goes
Brooklyn's Burning in the summer sun

did i forget to call you?
i'd be the best
you had if it weren't for the follow through
wait til you know you've got it
that's when you walk away
wait til you know you've got it
silly boys and the shit they say

the way you look
it's got me dizzy baby
(ooh hold steady)
the way you move
it keeps me from drifting away
and though I wanna fly
been trying so hard to be here now lately
when the music fades away you'll find
all that's left is your hips and the bass-line
you got
what i want
what i got
you just might like

it's so damn hot i don't want to fight
oh yeah and also i know you're right
if i were better i'd let you be
but you get so cute when you're mad at me
