Love Will Find A Way


Gonna Make It

Everywhere I been, I been learning how to get to wherever I am

And where I am is where I'm going and I'm going to the promised land

I don't always know my direction, but in faith and Love I overstand

That if I ask up for guidance, I'm guided by the almighty hand

And every time I'm feeling inspired, I take my guitar in my two hands

Jah Love is all that I man require to reach that holy Zion land

And I won't let them take it away, no I man, I won't be led astray

And I don't need to ride nobody's coattails, and I don't need no one to hold my hand

I'm gonna make it on my own two feet

I'm gonna make it on my blood, sweat and tears

I'm gonna make it, not gonna fake it, no way

They said get a degree but it wasn't for me

Higher education of the Almighty through music, teach me Love, teach me to use it

All I ever wanted was to spread Jah Love, and the only way that I could rise above was music, sweet Jah reggae music

So every note I plays is to give praise, that's why I play guitar and I sing

And I wouldn't trade these blisters on my fingers for no diamond rings

I sing just for the Love of Jah music, to lift you up when you are tattered and worn

And if I sound a little bit hoarse it's 'cause I been singing since the day I was born

And I just wanna sing a little bit more, and I'm sure that you can feel me

Don't need you to know just where I'm coming from, but I need you to feel me

So take it and make it your own song

And don't you let them take it away

No don't you let them lead you astray

You're gonna make it on your own two feet

You're gonna make it on your blood, sweat and tears

You're gonna make it, not gonna fake it, no way

I will never sell my soul to them, so many already givin' in, dem a caught up in confusion,

suffering delusions

All this dirt that we been digging in

Searching for something that we will never find

Oh mankind we can't let them take it away

We won't let them lead us astray

And we don't need no president to lead us

And we don't need no general to take a stand

We're gonna make it on our own two feet

We're gonna make it on our blood, sweat and tears

We're gonna make it, not gonna fake it, no way

Can you feel me, my heart pumping in my chest

Can you feel me, oh people please say yes

I need you to feel me, this is the real me, the reason I'm singing, the Love that I'm bringing is pure, unfiltered for sure

'Cause in my mind I saw a vision of peace

Every man, every woman, every child, one family

All singing together in one perfect harmony

It's not so far away, we're gonna make it someday

 

No Regrets

All this time will pass, into the past

So if you're happy, then make each moment last, don't hold nothing back

And if you're suffering, remember it won't last, get over it fast

Get back to living and giving Love

This life is just a test, I will remember, I will remember

This life ain't over yet, so please remember, not to forget

Newborn babies cry, their very first tears, they are so hopeful

Great grandfathers die, after many years, it is a circle

Teenagers find Love, then screw it all up

They are so fearful, yet somehow invincible

This life is not a curse, but there will be hard times, and it will get worse

But always do your best, and always remember that you are blessed

Everywhere you go, plant seeds, Love will grow

But remember who you are

And if you travel far, remember your heart is where your home is

So if you travel to the stars, remember your heart

And you won't be homeless or homesick at all

This life is just a test, with many failures and some success

But I will place my bets, and I will leave here with no regrets

 

Step Lightly

I'm choking there's no air to breathe, all these chemicals are poisoning me

I feel like I ain't got no space, I got to get out of this place

'Cause everybody's moving to fast, all I want to do is relax

I don't want no heart attack, don't wanna work 'til I break my back no

I don't wanna see no more construction, to me it looks just like destruction

Just want to protect Her and all She's done, She has provided for everyone so

Chorus:

Step lightly, you are trodding on sacred ground

Step lightly, there is beauty to be found, look all around

Step lightly, for you don't wanna leave a scar

Step lightly, or for your children this will be no more

The buildings just keep getting taller, open spaces dem a getting smaller

They're building more universities, and destroying diversity

But where will all the little animals run, to find shelter from the burning sun

If we let them cut down all the trees, and spread their industrial disease

Have they heard the ocean so deep, or witnessed the waterfalls weep

Do you think that they could be so blind, to bring the end of humankind

Oh Mama, I see that You're bleeding

Oh Mama, I feel Your pain in my soul

Mama I will do my best to teach them

Mama not to hurt You so

I see them use You, see every day how they abuse You

Oh Lord how they break You, see every day how they rape You

Chorus

They're cutting down the forests, filling up the landfills

Blackening the skyline, choking out the sun

'Til there's nothing left but garbage, steel, concrete and sorrow

People this doesn't have to be our tomorrow

If you listen closely, you will hear Her crying

Do you even care that She is slowly dying

We got to make a change now, if not for yourself then do it for your children

Who can deny that things have been getting so strange around here

And who can deny that it's been getting harder and harder to breathe

And who can deny that the species have been disappearing by the dozens, daily

And who can deny that it's been getting hotter and colder and hotter and colder every year

They're sucking the blood of the Earth

They're scratching at the heart of Mama Earth

They're fracturing the body of Mama Earth

They're sucking the blood of the Earth

And we all play a part in their plan

We all play a part, overstand

We all let them lead us by the hand

And watch as they destroy our homeland, our Motherland

And who will stand with me and fight

 

Roll River Roll

I been dreaming lately 'bout this place in the country where the air is clean

Unplug the cords and flip off the switches, kick off my shoes and feel the grass beneath my feet

Sooner or later everyone will face this, wanna be the first one to embrace

And kick a hole right through my television, sit out on my porch with a big smile upon my face

'Cause high above the tallest skyscrapers, deep in the cracks beneath the city streets

The seeds of change are already growing, everywhere people oare feeling incomplete

Unconsciously, they are awakening

Chorus:

Roll river roll, we gotta wash this whole place clean

And make the city like it never was, a faded memory or a dream

Roll river roll, we gotta wash these tears away

I wanna face you, don't wanna never be afraid

And when, the rivers subside and the saplings rise

Will we make a better choice than before

Or are we bound to remake all the same mistakes once more

Four sisters floated about on a raft fashioned out of the splintered remains of their home

They were cast out to sea by a storm wild and free and left to drift in the doldrums alone

One had brought silver, and another had gold, and a diamond so big it took two hands to hold

And the third had a brush and some lipstick and blush, to apply was her plan, at the first sight of land

But the fourth sister wept, for there was nothing she had kept of the broken world they left behind

She wept for the three, for even now they weren't free, as she gazed upon them one last time

And as they squabbled and fought over who had owned what, she said her goodbyes silently

And she tiptoed away on the crest of a wave, and the rest were buried in the sea

They were buried in the heart of the sea

Roll river, black water, swallow the tears from the sky, rise higher

For 40 nights and for 40 days, we're gonna have to learn to live a better way

Chorus

 

Advaya's Song

Your smile shines like the sun

Small child, your name means one

You came through the hearts of two lovers

A star shot from across another sky

Chorus:

Although I don't have a lot of money

Although I can't buy you lots of things, no

I'll give you Love

All I have to give it all belongs to you

Walk with me, I'll carry you upon my back

You're tired, so cranky, take a little nap

When you rise, rub your eyes and I'll be smiling back

I'll howl like an animal to please you

We can do anything you want to, 'cause I

Chorus

We're gonna have so much fun, 'cause now your life has just begun

And every little step you take, I'll be right there in the wake to watch you grow

And when it's time to leave the nest I know that this bond will stand the test of time

Chorus

 

Love Will Find a Way

I wanna be good, I wanna do better

Wanna live long but I know I won't live forever

So while I'm alive, I'm gonna make a spark

And I hope that my life will be a light, shining bright for those who are lost in the dark

I wanna give Love, I wanna have patience

Wanna feel the animal within, be wild like the wind, but gracious

I'm gonna plant my seeds

I'm gonna watch them grow

And I hope that my forest will restore in us a chorus that was lost long ago

I feel the fire burning

I know the tide is turning our way, though the skies might be gray

In the distance I can see blue, the sun has got to break through someday

And all that's left to say is Love will find a way

Wanna hear my people singing, singing songs of redemption

Singing songs of the truth, singing songs of the peaceful warrior nation

Singing songs to the Gods, of Love and thankfulness

'Cause we are alive and we're striving to thrive and we know that we're blessed

'Cause we are the ones who come to wipe away the poison that's been seeping into the heart, that's keeping us apart

Get down to the heart of the matter, all you're gonna find out is that all that matters is the heart, and at the end of the day

Love will find a way

How we gonna get anywhere, when everybody's running in place

Are we blind or are we just scared, scared we're gonna come face to face

And have to face the things that we've done, come to terms with what we've become

Come around and fix our mistakes, only Love can find a way

When the walls are crumbling and that deadlines creeping up

When that debt comes calling, and the sky's falling from above

You can always count on Love

I wanna swim seas, I wanna climb mountains

Wanna make angels in the snow, dip my toes in the eternal fountain

Gonna speak the truth, and though I've told some lies

I'm gonna wear my heart out on my sleeve for you to believe the honesty in my eyes

Keep me warm Mama

Like a white dove of peace on a battlefield, like a hungry, homeless man sharing his only meal, like a man the doctor's said would die but he was healed and all he did was pray, Love will find a way

Like a sunbeam breaking through the storm clouds, like an innocent prisoner breaking out, like a warrior who wants to run in the face of fear but he chooses to stay, Love will find a way

Like a rose growing out of the concrete, like a man running marathons with no feet, like a single mother working three jobs just to put food on the plate, Love will find a way

Like a deaf man composing a symphony, like an activist who chains herself up to a tree, like a man who quits his job to follow his dreams without a penny to his name, Love will find a way

Like a farmer growing crops in the desert sand, like a masterpiece painted with a crippled hand, like a surfer towing in, wearing a grin, into a sixty foot wave, Love will find a way

Like a guitar player, playing 'til his fingers bleed, like a piano man with arthritis playing 'til three, like a singer who is hoarse but he still forces himself to take the stage, Love will find a way

Like a blind man seeing for the first time, like a songwriter finding meaning in a rhyme, Like a poet who uses words as weapons and lives to fight another day, Love will find a way

Like a warm fire in winter or a summer breeze, like a child turning her dreams into realities, like a place where race, religion, sex or creed or class don't have a name, Love will find a way

Time to Wake Up

Chorus:

Time to wake up

Its been so long you're sleeping

You've been under a spell for far too long

Time to wake up

You've been far away dreaming

Thought you were in heaven but you were living in hell

This is the dawn of our return to a higher consciousness

We're moving on to Mount Zion in the higher heights

No more will we moan and weep over this babylon nonsense

We been sleeping but now our skin can feel the warmth of the light

Chorus

So ask ye now and you shall be forgiven and the Kingdom of Jah shall be opened to you

Righteousness is the path of the living and the wicked shall perish in the sight of the pure and true

The time has come and we need to know

Are you ready for this revolution

The time has come now we got to go

So are you ready for this soul revelation

Time to wake up from your sleep and your slumbering

You've been under a spell for far too long

Inside of your heart there's a storm that is thundering

But Love is breaking through and the clouds are giving way

Come out of the shadows

Step into the light

It's time to show your face now

It's time to see the light

'Cause in between the sorrows

And in between the lies

I can see your true heart

I see it in your eyes

I stand on the edge of the never

Chanting to those who would pierce my soul

Saying I'm not afraid of forever

I am a part of the Greater Whole

Just a piece in the puzzle of Zion

Trying to find just where I belong

Come to gather up all Jah Jah's children

We're forwarding back to our one true home

So come out of the shadows

Step into the light

It's time to show your face now

It's time to see the light

'Cause in between the sorrows

And in between the lies

I can see your true heart

I see it in your eyes

Open up the window the air is blowing thick

With stale lies force fed to us by mindless politicians

Servants to a beast invisible even to them

Our every waking moment lives within a half light

Blinded by the unseen seeds of oppression

Planted within the minds of generation after generation

But come listen brothers, come listen my sisters

We don't have to hate them, no we don't have to fear them

'Cause for all chemical weapons, bio­engineered viruses, nuclear warheads and

poisonous gasses

They don't have no weapon that can kill a soul

And they don't have no weapon that can kill Jah music

So open up the window, let Jah Love come pouring in

Chorus

So ask ye now and you shall be forgiven and the Kingdom of Jah shall be opened to you

Righteousness is the path of the living and the wicked shall perish in the sight of the pure and true

 

Good News

Just gimme some good news

I'm done singing the blues

Wanna feel the sunshine

And remember a time

When there was good news

And we kicked off our shoes

And felt the rain fall

Didn't need nothing at all

I remember when we were still young

And 20 dollars seemed like a fortune

Now money seems so important

Where did we go wrong

We gotta get back to those days

Where we could just sit and play

For hours with nothing but our imaginations

I wanna feel like a child again

I wanna regain my innocence

'Cause sometimes it seems like a lie

Everything we see through these eyes

We been so desensitized by television

Like products on assembly lines

They're manufacturing our minds

When will we freeze frame and rewind

Back to a time

When there was good news

And we kicked off our shoes

And felt the rainfall

Didn't need nothing at all

Just gimme some good news

I'm done singing the blues

Wanna feel the sunshine

And lose track of the time

Said it's never gonna stop until we drop outta this rat race, take a taste from the cup of redemption

Are we ever really gonna know which way to go to let it flow, oh now people are you paying attention

Did I forget to mention, I got another question

Are you ready to move because

We're grooving out of babylon, babylon is falling

Come on now people, we gotta follow Jah Love

If we're gonna reach Zion above

In this technological age, everybody's got a Facebook page

Whatever happened to face to face communication

So let's all put down our cellphones and leave the laptops at home

Cause brother it's been such a long time

So come on inside

I got some good news

I'm done singing the blues

Wanna feel the sunshine

And remember a time

When there was good news

And we kicked off our shoes

And played some kickball

Made a cup and string phone call

I just wanna remember

I can almost see it in my mind

Just take me back to a time when things were simpler

I just wanna remember

I can almost feel it in my heart

Just take me back to the start

When things were easier

Just gimme that gimme that gimme that

Good news, gimme some Love, I could never get enough of it filling me up

I wanna feel like a child again

 

Can't Take it With You When You Go

You can't take it with you when you go

No you can't take it with you when you go

Collect your silver, collect your gold

But in the end what will you have to show

'Cause you can't take it with you when you go

I was born at quarter to two in the morning

In the best suit I ever worn

And with my first breath I sang out a warning

To the world I had arrived

And I cried out when I first saw the light

I was blinded

I had been so in Love with the darkness

But adjustment is just part of life

And everywhere I looked everything was changing

Every moment a new face was appearing

And steering me, clearing my path to the next phase of the maze of unfolding awakening,

shaking me

And then I drank from the heart of my Mother

And heard the song from the soul of my Father

And further I flew and into this new world of opportunity, moving me, forming and

informing me so

Tell me, teach me, show me everything I need to know

'Cause you can't take it with you when you go

I was a punk little teenager, tormenting my Mother with all the mistakes I made

But I never once put a possession over a person that's just how I was raised

And I labored in a full time job for minimum wage

Yeah but my savior was this guitar said aloha to these new slave traders

I'll never again waste another drop of perspiration on a corporation, no matter what they pay

And I don't need no Christmas bonus I don't need no raise

Cause it won't do you no good in your grave

No it won't do you no good in your grave

Break your back, go on, slave away

To count your coins up at the end of the day

But it won't do you no good in your grave

And when I grew into what they refer to as a man, I was told I had to have a plan

Never really understood why, but I told them I would try

Seems this system is just designed to make you want shit you don't really need

Fill your heart with greed

Plant a seed of separation in your soul

Just remember happiness can not be bought or sold

And you can't take it with you when you go

Children listen please, let me say my piece

Growing up is a disease, don't you catch it

Can't take it with you when you go

No you can't take it with you when you go

Collect your silver, collect your gold

But in the end what will you have to show

'Cause you can't take it with you when you go

You can take my Love with you when you go

And I'll take your Love with me when I go

And hand in hand we'll leave this land and go wherever the trade winds blow

And we'll take this love with us when we go

 

Let it Rain

Chorus:

Please Jah, let it rain

Let it wash all this wickedness away

So much sorrow, so much pain

Let the sun come out to shine another day

Please Jah, let it rain

And if our roots are strong we will remain

Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain, let it rain, let it rain

In the beginning there was only Love

All was connected to the Most High above

Every creature lived in harmony

There was no language for the word enemy

All animals were equal under Jah sun

There was just enough food for everyone

There were no squabbles and no ego trips

There was no language for the word ownership

Then along came mankind, eager to prove his worth and his might

To conquer the land, conquer the seas, conquer the skies

A god in his own eyes

But be careful you build your house too high

Standing on your tiptoes trying to touch the sky, you're gonna topple

Look how your foundation crumble

You had everything you could need, but you just couldn't keep it simple

Chorus

How long will we wait for humanity to come around

Is the gap too great to cross this divide and be reunited

I should have known it, I should have seen it coming creeping like a shadow on my heart, hungry like a vampire

I should have felt it, historically the signs were there for all to see, esoterically hidden in plain sight

So gather your freedom and hold it tight, yeah we're gonna live it up tonight

Follow me brother cause babylon never discover the treasure that we hold, oh no

How long will we wait, open the doors of Zion gate

We will suffer no more

Can't you hear we knocking, knocking at your door

How long will we wait

Will we open the seventh and seal our fate

Is the gap too great, to cross this divide and be reunited

'Cause they will never give up, 'til they sucked every last drop of blood from out of our veins

So we got only one choice, listen closely to my voice, we got to take back our freedom

Chorus

 

I Love You

Intro:

If you're prayerful, Jah will answer your prayers

So just be upful, cause I will always be there

And please be careful, to fill your heart up with care

And positivity will follow you, everywhere you go

Oh my little brother

Bless you my sister

Jah Loves you mama

Jah Loves you papa

It's a beautiful world that we're living in

But it's a crazy world, why's it always changing

Seems like every time we get comfy and we settle down

Then they uproot us and they dupe us into moving

How many my brothers, how many sisters have given up their lives

Just to be pawns in these wicked war games

Manipulated into thinking that they fought and died

For their religion, killing in God's name

Inside aren't we all just the same

Chorus:

So true Love I am singing from my heart and soul

Want you to know, I Love you

Jah Love is the reason that we're standing here

So let me be clear, I Love you

Still this war goes on, but if we run away, we will live to fight another day

If you can't hold on, just take my hand and pray, cause InI know that Love will find a way

Don't you know Love will find a way

Chorus/repeat intro/Chorus
