Choose Wisely || Viano Dee

Intro:

Say what! You already know
Say what! It’s Viano!

Every time they see me I am always simple
Some of them call me fine girl without pimple
But I don’t let their flattery get into my head
I’ve got many things to do, I’ve got better plans set ahead

My life does not revolve around the praises of the people
Cause some of them are vile, most of them are evil
They talk good about you and hail you in your presence
But the moment you turn around, they backstab you — what’s the essence

Of the respect, if it doesn’t come from a clear conscience
Clearly makes no sense being friends with them
Set a preference to be friends with real folks, with people
Who will stand by when you hit ground zero
Reprimand you when you make an error
Tell you the truth like a clean clear mirror

Surround yourself with those who won’t like to see you fall (2x)

No time for nonsense, no time for bullshit
Can’t make a difference, then please excuse me
Don’t need your 2 cents, no need to push it
I can’t stand pretense, let’s not confuse things
You can’t sit on the fence, there’s no in betweens
Love I dispense, no hate or abuses
Got commonsense, don’t you dare misuse it
Use it to choose your friends wisely
Roll with friends who will hold you accountable
Cause those are the best

Surround yourself with those who won’t like to see you fall ( fall)

Slow and steady they say wins the race
I’m walking my journey at my own pace
And I’m staying so focused, no room for distractions
Cause I’ve got the right friends beside me

Slow and steady they say wins the race
I’m walking my journey at my own pace
And I’m staying so focused, no room for distractions
Cause I’ve got the right friends beside me

About “Choose Wisely”

Choose Wisely is the fourth track on the EP, Lyrical Detox. The message is for one to be careful and mindful of the company they keep because there are fake friends everywhere. This is why one must surround one’s self with the right crowd– the one’s who’ll be there when you need them to; the ones who’ll hold you accountable for your actions. Choose Wisely.

Wonderful job! Successful people surround themselves with successful people. Those we choose to be around will determine the type of life we lead.

the following is my favorite line:

Set a preference to be friends with real folks, with people

Who will stand by when you hit ground zero

That is so real, so raw, and so true. Often we are surrounded by those who pretend to be our friends but are only there when they can get something out of this from you. Powerful – great job! Thanks for sharing!

Say what! You already know … sounds somehow familiar. I just don’t know where from. But I love your lyrics more!
