We Tomorrow's People

written by J.P.Maunick, M. Elliott, G.Sanctuary

Tomorrow's people
Dreaming of a place, where time has no meaning
A future paradise, in a world without fears

Let's open up our eyes to the hurt and the sorrows
Time has come to ease the pain, build a better tomorrow

chorus 1
We tomorrow's people
We've got to understand
We tomorrow's people
Got our future in our hands

chorus 2
So whatcha gonna do with the key to your destiny
Will you live, let live, let it be

Hold your head up high, a new day is dawning
We'll keep our dreams alive in a world without tears

Let's open up our eyes to the hurt and the sorrows
Time has come to ease the pain and build a better tomorrow

repeat chorus 1

repeat chorus 2

So much hurting in the world
Will you live, let live, let it be
Much to change much to change in the world today

Mary's Got A Baby

written by M. Elliott, R. Livingstone, G. Chambers, M. Davis

chorus 1
Mary's got a baby pretty little baby
What am I supposed to do
I try my best to help her, show her that I care
But brothers got their problem too

chorus 2
Hot man fi get a hot woman ya
Rastaman fi get a ras woman ya
a lioness fi get a lion right right

Too much drama and commotion that's surrounding me
It's a sticky situation and I can't break free
Lord I wish that sweet sweet Mary could be my cherie
But my Mary's got a baby and it's not for me

repeat chorus 1

Listen the DJ style and listen mi patter
Woman weh mi love oonu fi try understand

And any were that wi go a we a rock di nation

Any weh them see we come jump pon we like ants
This is Beenie Man up on the version
Maxi Priest yuh a number one singer help me sing along

repeat chorus 2
Every morning that I wake it's only bills I see
It's so hard just for a man to build a family
All the stress and strife of life has got a hold on me
When I hear the baby cry it breaks a part of me oh well

repeat chorus 1

My life and your life is just familiar
Every day dem want to kill mi in the media
And dem say mi have seven baby mother
But mi check dem have a next baby father
Well a four youth mi get although mi a fret
Cause every girl weh fi step in a mi crip yes
All now mi nuh see di next three yet

What A Woman Needs

written by M. Elliott, J. Thomas, J. Thompson

Tell me does he ever stroke your body gently
Does he talk to you the way that I do
Does he look into your eyes and see his future
I know that I do when I'm loving you

He's been treating you like love is out of season
Girl there ain't no reason
You can have it all
What a woman needs

chorus
This is how my heart beats
When I am making love to you
Listen to the sounds of how much I want you
Let your body feel my groove
I wanna get deep in you
This is what a woman needs day and night
What a woman needs

You need understanding love and devotion
So let me put it into motion
This is what I'll do for you

I'll break you off the way that you like
I'll be the priest you call in the night
I'll keep it real
So baby what's the deal

He's been treating you like love is out of season
Girl there ain't no reason
You can have it all
What a woman needs

repeat chorus

Everyday will be sunshine
Cause what a woman needs
I'll give to you
Making love in the moonlight
I promise I will cherish you forever

repeat chorus

 

Back Together Again

written by R. Lucas, J. Mtume

It seems we've weathered
Hard times we've been through
In silence I've waited
I've missed you (miss you too)

chorus
Coz you you and I back together again
We got the world in a spin
Coz you you and I back together again,
We got the world in a spin

It's all come together
Problems we've defeated
I'm here heart in hand
You take all that I got if you need it baby

repeat chorus

Love will last forever (that's true)
We can make it real (got to be real)
Say you'll leave me never
We can truly feel (watcha feel) (I feel like getting)

Back together
(Baby keep it real and I will be there till the end)

Younger and wiser
Time has shown the way
We've come full circle here to stay (here to stay)
(We got the world)

repeat chorus

You know the deal
My life story from broke
We always talked about the bad times that turned into jokes
We spoke about you leaving the town, yo I was down
But now you're back in my life
I'm happy to have you around (I hold you down)
Remember the fun we have when we're young
You thought it was done, never none
We haven't begun
Together we come the land of living
I'm giving my heart to you every part
You the one I'm feeling

Truth is the light
It's the joy that we both share
Make love day and night
It's so easy to do when you care

repeat chorus 2x

 

She Wants To Dance

Look like she wants to mad the I

Oh oh oh do you wanna dance
Do you wanna dance do you wanna
Oh oh oh do you wanna dance
Do you wanna dance

Moving in cheek to cheek
Still in silence we don't speak
So intense in the groove
All she wants is to get rude
Rising up to the heat
I get chills down to my feet
When I'm begging her to stay
She just turns and says no way

chorus
She likes to dance
She just a mad the up the crew
She doesn't want a romance
So tell me what to a do
She wants to tease
Eh eh Baby Boo

Weh you a do Poochie Lou
She wants to dance
She just a mad the up the crew
Just to give you the fever
So tell me what to a do
Just like an addiction
You just want it more and more

Sexy dress makes you dess
Leaves you yearning to caress
While she's burning like a fire
You're just melting with desire
You can look but you can't touch
And you just won't get too much
She's not into conversation
You won't get no explanation

repeat chorus

Oh oh oh do you wanna dance
Do you wanna dance do you wanna
Oh oh oh do you wanna dance

Excitement create wid every look she please we

Like a fruit to tempt your taste
Pure excitement to her waist
Now you're fixed in a spell
Good or evil you can't tell

Golden Lady

written by Stevie Wonder

Looking in your eyes
Kind of heaven eyes
Closing both my eyes
Waiting for surprise

To see the heaven in your eyes is not so far
And I'm not afraid to try and go it
To know the love and the beauty never known before
I'll leave it up to you to show it

chorus
And golden lady, golden lady
I'd like to go there
And golden lady, golden lady
I'd like to go there
Take me right away

Looking at your hands
Hands can understand
Waiting for the chance ooh
Oh just to hold your hand

A touch of rain and sunshine made the flowers grow
oh into a lovely smile that's bloomin'
And it's so clear to me that you're a dream come true
And there's no way that I'll be losing you oh

repeat chorus

Oh baby baby baby

A touch of rain and sunshine made the flowers grow
Oh into a lovely smile that's blooming
And it's so clear to me that you're a dream come true
There's no way that I'll be losing you oh

repeat chorus

Oh take me right away
Take me right away
Just take me right away
Oh I wanna go there

Wasn't Meant To Be

written by K. Brainerd, E. Toppin

Walk away, just walk away

Eight o'clock the purple clouds
I look outside my heart is heavy with regret
I never thought I could be standing so empty
And now your face I know I never will forget

They say this is love and you go through things like this sometimes
Try and not to show oh no
You know I know that it's over but I just can't let it go
And now that I know

chorus
It wasn't meant to be, between you and me
Now I know it wasn't meant to be
I've seen now the road I've been going down
Wasn't meant to be no no

Twilight, sun going down
The atmosphere is of romance is in the air
Reaching out for a piece of a memory
Final moments of our love we could share
But too many things undecided in between us
A life time and a day oh yeah
Ooh don't break the silence that surrounds us cause
There's nothing more to say and we'll have to pay

repeat chorus 2x

They say this is love and you go through things like this sometimes
That's the way it goes oh no
I got so much emotion but I just can't let it go
No no no

repeat chorus 2x

 

Try

written by M. Elliott, G. Benson, L. Brown

Don't rush the move you gotta make
Don't give it all before you take
Just step aside and watch a while
Be prepared to walk an extra mile
Flip the switch and check the groove
And now's the time to stop talk and move
Education is the only way
To learn to live to fight another day

chorus
We can make it if we try try try
Who's the mathematician Jah Jah on a mission try try try

Don't get caught in no desperation
Use your skill from your ghetto irration
Feel the vibration
Some people see it astrologically
But I didn't get that from my triga knowledgy

What a friend who would deceive
Use your faith when you believe
Thought he was a friend
The human love we thought was real
So off and on so what's the deal
Thought he was a friend yeah

repeat chorus

Now tell me
Who's the mathematician
Jah Jah on a mission
Trying to find a way in this world of attrition
Jah Jah on a mission
Work it out,work it out

Keep it real

We gotta find a sanctuary
Flip into the 21st century
Keep it real and lose the fakes
Learn all your lessons from your own mistakes
Children now will come of age
Let's keep the love as we set the stage
Justice for all we can stand tall
No more comin' from back against the wall hey

We can make it if we try try try
Who's the mathematician
Jah Jah on a mission

I Only Have One Heart

written by G. Michael, R. Livingstone, M. Elliott

If love was a thing that money could buy
The rich would live and the poor would die yeah yeah

chorus
I only have one heart
Don't tear it all apart
I don't know where to start
Cause I can't wait forever for you

The way you treat me baby
I just don't understand
The way you hold my hand
I thought I was your man
And all the things I wanted
And all that we've been through
I've never loved no one the way that I loved you

So why you treat me so bad
I almost go mad
I wouldn't do the things that you do
Now I'm sad
I thought I had you
Now it's an impossible dream that will never come true yeah

repeat chorus

Some things I hear you say
It just don't go that way
The things I see you do
Ooh what happen to you
So tell me what went wrong
I thought our love was strong
I guess I had it wrong
Tell me what's going on

Cause now I'm down on my knees
I'm begging you please
Girl if you don't want me
Set me free for a love
That's waiting for me
There's got to be a better way
And someone who really loves me

repeat chorus

nanananana, nanananana I can't wait for you no way no way
nanananana, nanananana I can't wait for you no way

I only have, have one heart
I only got one heart

I don't know where to start
Cause I can't wait forever for you

If love was a thing that money could buy
The rich would live and the poor would die

 

The One

written by M. Elliott, G. Benson, L. Brown, A. Thompson, W. Hector

The minute I saw you
I wanted to hold you
But I kept it inside and my foolish pride
I wish that I'd told you

Why can't you be mine
And spend all of my time
I've so much to give and one life to live
I can't be without you

chorus
If only I could be the one
To love you forever
If only I could be the one
To cherish forever

Don't know if we're coming or going
I just don't know what to do
And so scared to walk away without knowing ooh

What can I tell you
I just can't ignore you
Could I be the one, just let me be the one
Someone you can run to

repeat chorus

Too many words left unspoken, spoken
Girl I promise you your heart won't be broken no no
If you're looking for some love and affection
Then you're looking in the right direction

I wanna cherish you cherish you baby
Anyway you want me to
Cherish you, cherish you darling
For the rest of my life
Cherish you baby ooh yes I will
Cherish you darling

So What If It Rains

written by M. Elliott, J. Thompson

I just got the 411 heard it on the radio from the weatherman
Today there's gonna be no sun
Stormy weather's coming down
Everybody's changing plans
A little drop of rain they start to run away
I don't really give a damn
Cause in the rain we're gonna stay

Warm drops on the skin, let the love begin
I'll give you love the way you want it
In any kind of weather

chorus
So what if it rains, I'll be inside
Safe in the shelter of your love far from the storm
So what if it rains slippery when warm
Deep within your love the sun still shines
So what if it rains so what so what

Laying on a bed of flowers
Songbirds all around us sing the joy of spring
And the crazy things it brings
Lovers in the moment do it anywhere
I love it when we're wrapped up
Rockin' to the rythm of the pouring rain
Like a summer storm you come for me
Every time I let you feel my thunder

Warm drops on the skin, let the love begin
I'll give you love the way you want it
In any kind of weather

repeat chorus

It feels so good inside your love
I couldn't stop if I wanted to ooh baby
The sun is breaking out above
I can hear the people coming out
I don't give a damn who's watching
Or if we draw a crowd
I'm gonna tell the world I love you
And I'm gonna say it out loud

repeat chorus

Ooh baby I don't give a damn if it rains
Don't give a damn baby Don't give a damn baby ooh
Allright yeah
I said
I don't give a damn if it rains
Cause it feels so good baby cause it feels so good yeah
I don't give a damn if it rains

 

God Watches Over Us

written by G. Benson, M. Elliott, C. Branch

Mmm oh yeah blessed be the father oh
Sometimes you feel like you're all alone
Sometimes it's hard just to find a home
Seems like you're searching in the dark
Trying to find just a touch of heart

Sometimes you feel like you wanna cry
Breakdown and crawl like you wanna die
Just when you think that all is lost
You find the strength just to get across
And when you reach for a deeper love
You find a way to rise above
Cause I know I know I know I know

chorus
God watches over us
And no matter where we go
I put my heart and trust
And I just won't let it go
Cause I know I know I know I know
God watches over us oh yeah

I've had my times for the might have been
I've played those games that I couldn't win
I had a hand had to turn it in
Cause I was scared just to loose a friend
Sometimes you stop and you close the door
You reach inside cause you needed more
Can't help but kneel and shout a prayer
Somehow I know there is someone there
Cause when you reach out for a deeper love
You find a way to rise above
Cause I know I know I know I know
repeat chorus
Life may have its ups and downs
But when all is lost I've found
I've found

repeat chorus
