Anthony

Verse 1:

I Remember those days.
Back in California.
When I was 16, and you were...
13. We were cool, unseen.
Not trying to be apart of the family's...
Dysfunctional Scene.
I taught you Martial Arts...
This is where it all starts.
And I just wanna say....

(Chorus)

Anthony.
I hope you're doing well my Cousin.
Whereever the hell you are.
I hope you shine like a Superstar.
Just don't get into Drugs, and don't Drink.
Use you head, and think.
And you'll always Rise Above.
With Uncoditonal Love.
Yeah bro, that brightness in you makes you who you are.
So Shine On, Shine on...Like a Superstar!
Anthony.

(End of 1st Chorus)

Verse 2:

These are shades of my Youth.
Nothing but Truth.
Now Anthony won medals in Karate.
All because I taught him some Martial Arts.
I'm glad I Inspired another person.
To follow their Dreams and stop whenever things seem.
A little out of place, so just get back up on your feet and join the race.
Get first place yeah!
I just wanna say....

(Chorus)

Anthony.
I hope you're doing well my Cousin.
Whereever the hell you are.
I hope you shine like a Superstar.
Just don't get into Drugs, and don Drink.
Use you head, and think.
And you'll always Rise Above.
With Uncoditonal Love.
Yeah bro, that brightness in you makes you who you are.
So Shine On, Shine on...Like a Superstar!
Anthony.

(End of Last Chorus)

Last Verse:

Wherever you are!
Shine like a Shooting Star.
Cus Anthony, Anthony you gotta Rise Above the Bulls***.
And just do it.
Don't follow the same path as this f***ed up family.
Wake up to Reality.
Cus I know you got Potential, don't forget anyone can be Influential.
Yeah, even you!
This song goes out to my cousin.

Anthony....
