Jah Will Never Leave I Alone


Peace, Love and Harmony

Chorus:
Peace, love and harmony is everything I man need to be
I don't want no war and no more blood money
I need peace, love and harmony

I will teach the whole wide world, every man, woman, boy and girl to live in harmony, without hate or greed, it seems so easy
Just look into your heart and you will find the secrets and the mysteries of the ancient times
And you'll find how pointless it is to be unkind, Jahman relax unwind and open up your mind cause
When the time comes, we will be one, so don't you cry, spread your wings and fly

Focus your pure energy let the vibration set you free, you are born of the truth don't live in fantasy its up to we to bring mankind back to reality Jah livity and see that

Chorus

Beneath the pain, judgement and fear, Iternal Love waits for you there

Why are you crying, don't you know Jah Love is waiting, can't you hear
Down in the garden, can't you hear we calling, so come on in


Dreams

Oh Earth Mother here's a flower for your hair, a song to show you some of us still care
I have seen you choking on the smog, you're forests chopped down and your rivers clogged

But in my dreams everything seems much brighter than before
And I can see her calling me from the shore

Oh Mama it must break your heart so, to see your children warring over gold
And all the blood it soaks into your skin, you feel the fears of all the years they've been hunting and slaughtering
All the animals that should be running free, they are slowly being exterminated by humanity

Look to the east, the road to peace lies with the setting sun
Under her wing where everything is one

And when all the waterfalls have died, we won't be able to replace them, no matter how many tears we cry

(I'm sorry)
When darkness falls it will be all who face the shadow
(Forgive me)
And your judgement it will come from within your own soul
(I Love you)
Will you have the courage to look into the mirror
(Respect you)
Will you go to her open arms, Love and respect her

In my dreams everything seems much brighter than before
And I can see her calling me from the shore
Look to the east, the road to peace lies with the setting sun
Under her wing where everything is one


Mama's Boy

How will your garden ever bear fruit if you never take time to nurture the roots its easy to overstand, you got no future plans
Your arms are scrawny and your skin is pale, you got no dirt under your fingernails, you got a lot to learn, but you got money to burn

Mama's boy, daddy's little girl, cut of the umbilical get out into the world you've been hanging on too long little darling I think its about time for you to spread your own wings

And you'll find that in time you'll be fine once you learn a few things
You have longed for this song for so long now its your turn to sing
And you'll know that you've grown once your own wings have flown and you'll find a new home that you can call your own but your never gonna know if you never go and sew your seeds and become whole no you're never gonna fly if you never try to reach the heights

Mama's boy, daddy's little girl, cut of the umbilical get out into the world you'll see things that you never dreamed of step out in the world and you might even find Love
Mama's boy, daddy's little girl, cut off the umbilical get out into the world you'll see things you never knew existed the world was passing by and all this time you missed it
And if you're afraid just to make a mistake, well rewards only come out of chances you take
So break free from the mold stop doing just as your told, out beyond the end you might make a few new friends
And if you are lost and you can't find your way, your tongue is all tied you can't find the words to say
Look into your bones the truth is etched there in stone, it has always been waiting for your heart to be awakened
And you'll return, standing firm in all you've learned, ready to be a teacher
You have longed for this song for so long now its your turn to be the singer
And your voice will carry, echo through the valleys, like a trumpet set free in three part harmony, if you really wanna see what there is to see, fulfill your destiny, unfold the mysteries, then step into the wild blue, take a look inside you, set yourself free

How will your garden ever bear fruit if you never take time to nurture the roots its easy to overstand, you got no future plans
Your arms are scrawny and your skin is pale, you got no dirt under your fingernails, you got a lot to learn, but you got money to burn

Mama's boy, daddy's little girl, cut of the umbilical get out into the world
You'll never learn to pick yourself up if you never fall, so cut off the umbilical


Star Crossed Love

There could never be another woman for me and I know that I am the perfect man for you
I couldn't live my life another way and I know I could never survive another day without you

I still remember the first time we met, long before we ever got to know each other yet, how we stayed up talking on the telephone, bout the past and the future and the great unknown
I can still remember the first time we kissed and the electricity that passed between our lips, as the sun rose over the Ko'olau mountains, I saw our new lives begin

There could never be another woman for me and I know that I am the perfect man for you
I couldn't live my life another way and I know I could never survive another day without you
I'll cross the sky, and pull down a star, climb a mountain high, to be where you are
I'd stand out in the rain, shout it out loud, cause I'll feel the same a thousand years from now

Cause our Love is above unconditional, like the stars in the sky
And as time passes by our vibrational energies intertwine
Like a breeze through the trees we entangle and escape to another land
I was wrong all along when I told you that I'd Love you forever, cause forever could never be long enough
And you are the first thing on my mind when I awake, and you are the last thing that I see before I sleep, and when I dream your right there leading me through a winding wonderland, Iternally you will be I n I queen and I'll be your kinsman

I'll cross the sky, and pull down a star, climb a mountain high, to be where you are
I'd stand out in the rain, shout it out loud, cause I'll feel the same a thousand years from now

Your sweet breath hits my cheek like a river comes to the sea
As powerful and gentle as the strength of your heart
Like a rhyme out of rhythm, or a forgotten pastime, or a tree in a forest of vines
We fight against these times
The shifting sands of our souls navigate the labyrinths of this life
To combine and intertwine, reconnect and realign, the embraces of a thousand lifetimes
A hundred galaxies, a million stars return
From across the great expanse I have come to capture your gaze again
From Mama's needle we have been spun, and reawoken in each others' sight
For a covenant was made that shall never be broken
And a framework built that shall never be laid to waste
A vibration, unconditional, above
A promise kept, a star crossed Love


Rain or Shine

You know I will be there, thick or thin, rain or shine, you know I will be there

Take my hand, its gonna be alright now child, just take my hand and know that its alright to cry, takes a big man to suck it up and just accept a helping hand, you know that we all ride the ruts from time to time, we all got mountains to climb
So check the signs, look around Jah they're everywhere, open your mind, I know sometimes it seems unfair but take your cards and play your hand the best you can, I know its hard when things don't go just as you planned but when the times get tough

You know I will be there, thick or thin, rain or shine, when the road is rough and rocky, when you're lost and afraid and you can't find your way

Oh brother, lay you're weary body down, my sister, wipe away that angry frown, my friend you've been running on an empty tank so long you start to get the feeling you belong in this hell you've been living in so many, many years but don't give in
Cause over yonder, life is waiting, so just stop your self deflating ego trips and start forgiving yourself and get busy living and when the times get tough

You know I will be there, when the road is rough and rocky, when you think that you  ain't got no friends, and when you're lost and afraid and you can't find your way

Take my hand, thick or thin, rain or shine


Heartbeat

How much do I owe you, you gave me my heartbeat
As I search for the words to say my tongue falls away
You are my heartbeat, as pure and as true as the ocean is blue
My heartbeat

You were by my side when all I had was a dream and a gleam in my eye so I'll never forget you, I'll always love you
You, you had my back when all I had was a five string guitar and a knapsack so I'll never forget you, I'll always Love you

Cause when the rain came, you were my ark, you were my shelter
And when the sun shone, you were right there to fill me with laughter

Oh Mama, you gave me life, gave me your breast when you were bleeding inside and I'll never forget how you held me the first time a girl that I loved ever left me
And oh Papa you gave me my voice, and through it all, always gave me a choice and I finally understand how you taught me, your shining example of Love and positivity
Even through the worst you always put me first and suffered the cost for every battle I lost and now I, I can't imagine another, more perfect mother and father

All the sacrifices you made are lessons growing in me now, all the Love you gave is living within me, within my heartbeat

You were by my side when all I had was a dream and a gleam in my eye so I'll never forget you, I'll always love you
You, you had my back when all I had was a five string guitar and a knapsack so I'll never forget you, I'll always Love you

Heartbeat, you are my heartbeat, my heart beats in you

Rockaz' Jam

Original roots reggae from the heart of Father Psalms
Mike Love on the microphone to tell you what we want
Truth and positivity at the heart of all music
Don't wanna hear none of them babylon lyrics

Take a little tip from me, if you're feeling unhappy, sing and chant this simple phrase, I will Love Jah for the rest of my days

Hey Jah Gumby how you get the bassline so heavy, dubbin' on the soundboard and chanting nyabinghi
Praising Jah with music cause its all we got to give, there could be no other way for us to live


Jah Will Never Leave I Alone

Chorus:
In these troubling times, money comes and goes, but one thing I know Jah will never leave I alone
And the sun will shine, and the rain will fall, but I n I know Jah will never leave I alone

I woke up early this morning and Jah sun was not yet dawning, but I know in my heart it's gonna rise
Cause just before dawn the night is at its darkest and just when you think what you seek is at its farthest, thats when Jah will show you you're standing at the finish line
Cause when you're running around you can't find the time to clear up your mind
And if you never Iditate you won't contemplate the mysteries of time
See you're a prisoner of a system of an ancient design
Watching your future become past is your favorite pastime
To break the bonds of this system of slavery is up to you and your redemption will come if your words and actions are true
Because no matter what no one can make your choices for you

Chorus

Believe me I know that its hard to be strong now and believe me I know its hard to find where to belong now, but believe me when I tell you that things will be better soon
And believe me they could never harm us my bredren, deceive we as we strive to rebuild our Zion and believe me when I tell you that your future is up to you
So don't you let them make you there fool, pick yourself up, dust yourself off, Jahman and start anew
Cause all this glamour is meant to do is to distract you and attack all of your weaknesses and who
Who will be your shepherd when you go astray and who will be your courage when you are afraid and who will be your guidance when you lose your way only Jah

I woke up early this morning and Jah sun was not yet dawning, but I know in my heart it's gonna rise
Cause just before dawn the night is at its darkest and just when you think what you seek is at its farthest, thats when Jah will show you Jah will reach you Jah will teach you

In these troubling times, money comes and goes, but one thing I know Jah will never leave I alone
And the sun will shine, and the rain will fall, but I n I know Jah will never leave I alone

In these troubling times, when anything goes, there's one thing I know Jah will never leave I alone
And the sun will shine, and the rain will fall, but I n I know Jah will never leave I alone


Cat's Meow

This is a song to set the record straight, because before long its gonna be too late to save the music from corporate oppression, we got to take back the radio stations
To all you producers and executives, so dedicated to churning out the hits, we don't want to hear no more cheese, auto tune pop bullshit, we want the roots not this Jawaiian candy

I remember a time we used to sing on the corner for nickels and dimes, now I look around and how everything has changed, but somehow the music has always stayed the same throughout the changes
And its got me thinking that even when the world all around us is sinking, Jah music will always be living going strong, long after humanity has been dead and gone, it will live on
And all these records will rot and decay and only the vibrations will remain, and if the sound you made was pure and true, your music it will live on long after you

So this is a message to you pop singers, all who have forgotten your roots and culture, this is a reminder, a simple thought to ponder, are you yourself or are you just another
A beautiful face there on the MTV, an original or a carbon copy, are you just one of them, just trying to fit in, is there an original bone in your body

I remember a time when all the musicians would stand outside in a line, just to get a chance to jump up on stage and blow to see if you got the talent to give the people a show
Now its just all about who you know, who's ass you kiss in this puppet show, but there's one thing that all of them don't know, true music can never be bought or sold

So if American Idol is your favorite show, well worshiping idols is a big no no, cause if you worship wealth, or if you worship yourself someday soon your true colors are gonna show
If glitter and glam is all you desire, then sooner or later you'll feel the fire, licking up at your heels, burning away all you conceal, revealing the truth that's hiding in your soul

So we give respect to all musicians unchained and free, all of them who are playing for the Love and never the Love of money, this is a song for you all, we're all one big family, whether you play roots, rock, jazz, blues, hip-hop, or r&b
This is a call to the people, all the singers and players, the poets and painters, dancers and appreciators, all who play music for the good of the greater, who know all music comes from Jah the Creator, gotta free up the music, gotta free up the culture and leave these corporate music industry vultures, gotta keep the music pure forever

And give the people something fresh and innovative, unexpected and creative, something they can all relate with, we gotta mix it up, gotta change it up, rearrange it up and give them lyrics that will make them think cause we are standing on the brink, rastaman, give yourself a pat on the back and pick up the slack cause we gotta keep on trodding til we reach the Zion heights above and we gotta keep the music flowing in a positive direction, give the people a reflection of Jah Love

So man if you ain't got the message by now, original music is the cat's meow, so turn your radio up and roll your windows down and let the people hear you sing it out loud

We got to free up Jah music


Move Forward

What you gonna do when the ocean is boiling, rising up, bubbling out of the bay
Only then will you accept these problems aren't just going to go away
And what'll you do when the mountain is crumbling, and every remaining species is dead
All the while you were slacking and stumbling, should've been doing Jah works instead

Cause all that preaching that you did while you were in the pulpit, what will it do for you now that the truth is out, looks like your gonna have to start all over
Embark on a spiritual journey, look within, knowledge is the promised key, take the road that leads to the mountain, cleanse in the eternal fountain

Move forward, seek the truth, don't you be afraid to speak your mind, speak the truth, the courage will find you

So don't look to the preacher man to take you by the hand, he will only lead you through his own land, human you've got your own truth to overstand
You keep looking for a messiah, some invincible leader to guide ya, you keep looking for someone to save you when your own savior is living within you

Jah is living, made up of you, connecting and directing you to everything that surrounds you, true

Move forward, seek the truth, don't you be afraid to speak your mind, speak the truth, the courage will find you
 
And each day there'll be many new possibilities for you to spread this Love Jah has given to you

What you gonna do when the ocean is boiling, rising up, bubbling out of the bay
Now that you have accepted these problems aren't just going to go away
And what'll you do now the mountain is crumbling, and the very last trumpet has cried
Will you stand up and change our future, or be swept away in the rising tide


Neva Retiya

From the first moment I opened my eyes, I knew I had a destiny to realize
Cause we are all one people, one creature, one sky, and it is not our fate that we should be divided
And dead soon we all will be if we can't figure out a way to live in peace and harmony
The pathway is ours to choose, we got so much to gain, we got even more to lose
Corporate politicians, hung up on puppet strings, making bad decisions for all of us
With so much under cover, its only in each other that we can put our trust

Chorus
Farmers plant your corn and trailblazers trod it on, we all must face the dawn together
Singers sing your songs, cause I know it won't be long, this world will die but the spirit is forever

Marching forward, through the never, past returning, beyond forever, now reborn, again we borrow these hearts and hands through our joy and our sorrow

And we burn the fyah, Rastaman burn the fyah

Chorus

Cause if into the future we all could see, we'd probably do things a little differently
At least I hope we would have the sense to see the futility of all this violence
Now we're seeing the damage we've done, we're becoming prisoners of our own sun, and if we are going to survive in these times, we got to leave the past behind

Dust to dust and ashes to ashes, our past is future, future's past, from descendants to ancestors, I and I return forIver

Burn the fyah, neva retiya
