Brooklyn Don't Cry For Me.
Written By: Dell Wells
Dedicated to my friend J. STYLES
Featuring Bridget Barkan
Produced By: Craig Levy

Verse 1:
(dell)
Greetings Mr. Grim
I see you've come to claim
Another close friend.
You don't even explain yourself
That was a blow to the breadbasket
Taking Mr. Styles
The OG who electrified
Class exemplified
Exercised the gift of socialize
The aristocrat of the stuy
Your hurst can't access a ride
The size of the mans smile
girth of his worth
The lives that he's guided
The hurt we all feel
When he left this earth
To watch over us in the stratus
Never passed judgement
Demanded justice
Saw how corrupt Brooklyn was
Told us to rise above it.
Had the best of times in the sunshine
Now the worst of days
in the melancholy grey.
Rainbows find a way
To bring hope to the strays
J Styles would say.......

(Bridget)
Chorus:
Brooklyn Don't Cry for Me.....
This pain in my heart
Finally set me free......
All that got
I'll give whatever you need
For Every tear dropped
Is a rainbow
over the city.

(dell)
Verse 2:
I have to say thank you to his parents
Intimidating appearance
Made it apparent
Not a play thing
Intelligence evident in every sentence
J Styles the benevolent
In the company of a gentlemen
I seen the best of Brooklyn
Spoke the language
that attracts the women
Certain standards
saboteurs can't master
Insurgents can't plan for
Blessed by the Pastor
To bring an end to the banter.
J Styles the Catalyst
Distributing piece of mind
Many trapped in the madness
I seen him pray over packages
Powdered white on the canvass
Father forgive our trespasses
Sometimes the worlds semantics
Forces the hand it's dealt.
I miss my friend
I realize how much he meant
A king residing over his subjects
J Styles once said.....

(Bridget)
Chorus:
Brooklyn Don't Cry for Me.....
This pain in my heart
Finally set me free......
All that got
I'll give whatever you need
For Every tear dropped
There's a rainbow
over the city.

(Bridget)
Verse 3:
God knows We will miss you.
God knows We will miss you.
God Knows We will miss you.
God Knows We will miss you......

(Dell)
Verse 3:
Parties at Roseland
Bottles being passed
That was styles signing autographs
I miss the big Homies laugh
I thank you for the family I met
The vet only kept a select in his presence
Those with no pretense
Those speaking to the heavens
Searching for repentance.
For many years I ran reckless
Tried to sign my own dead certificate with no ink.
What would J STLYES think?

(Bridget)
Chorus:
Brooklyn don't cry for me
This pain in my heart finally set me free
All that I got
I'll give whatever you need
For Every tear dropped is a rainbow over the city.
