"If" as written by and Thad Corea Paul Cantelon....
Life begins to flicker and fade as my eyes rest
On the barrel of a fourty-five mouth of madness
My girl standin' next to me begins to plead
For the mugger to heed his misdeed that breeds infamy
His gun wavers as cocaine flows through his veins
An evil fiend slowly dyin' in the fast lane
Rain falls he looks sideways with a crooked eyeball
I reach for my wallet which fumbles and falls
His finger on the trigger as I hold my breath
Freeze frame like a picture perfect image of Death
He grabs the wallet with haste but then hesitates
As he fondles my girl a crazed look on his face
Mad minute as my rage intensifies
But the gun to her belly makes my anger subside
He then runs away turnin' fear to shame
The damage is done things will never be the same

(Chorus)
If I woulda had no fear
If I hadn't gone down here
Now it's so clear
That second chances ain't there
If I would a "Taken another route"
Maybe I should a "Protected my girl"
Only if I could a "Been a little more brave"
But second chances ain't there

Life begins to flicker and fade as my eyes rest
On the barrel of a fourty-five mouth of madness
My girl standin' next to me begins to plead
Muscles go stiff about to make a motherfucker bleed
His gun wavers as I'm bent on deadly intent
My fists don't relent on the corporal punishment
Rain falls as his broken body hits the wall
Yellin' to my girl to make the police call
Murderous intentions flow through my veins
My girl screams "lookout" I continue the pain
Then I fell shock throughout my dome
As another villian rocks me with a hammer full blown
In the dark I couldn't see that the mugger had a lookout
Tried to turn about but he administered the blackout
As darkness overcomes I see them rape my girl
Her screams pierce the night as the horror unfurls


(Chorus)
If I woulda had no fear
If I hadn't gone down here
Now it's so clear
That second chances ain't there
If I would a "Seen his homie hidin' there"
Maybe I should a "Carried some sort of weapon"
Only if I could a "Been more on point"
But second chances ain't there

Life begins to flicker and fade as my eyes rest
On the barrel of a fourty-five mouth of madness
My girl standin' next to me begins to plead
As I reach for my gat with the greatest of speed
Quickly fumble the steel when my gun's revealed
It's bullet time can hear repeated caps peel
Pain explodes when the bullets begin to manifold
Deathblow as I attract the steel like Magneto
The killer's gun wavers as he loudly cries
His mad rage doesn't reside but intensifies
Hail of bullets trackin' through the air
Leavin' heroic efforts in the pit of despair
Rain falls as my girl's broken body hits the wall
See the sick vision when a bullet strikes her jaw
There we both lie in a puddle of blood on the ground
As we stare in each other's eyes and make no sound

(Chorus)
If I woulda had no fear
If I hadn't gone down here
Now it's so clear
That second chances ain't there
If I would a "Just taken a cab home"
Maybe I should a "Tried not to be a hero"
Only if I could a "Just taken the bone"
But second chances ain't there
