INTENTIONS Song lyrics
 

love train

written by : M. Elliott, P. Robinson

chorus
Get on the love train
Gotta get on board
Get on the love train
Gotta get on board
Won't need no ticket, just get on board
You're on the right road, just get on board
On the love train
Gotta get on board

I never wanna leave my people behind
Whether black or white
And I don't understand the reasons why
That we have to live apart and stray
For health, strength and prosperity
It's there for you, it's there for me
On the love train, gotta get on board

See my idea of a love train is to jammin' as one
Like Bobs jamming in the name of the Lord
With hearts and minds and fullfilness, we'll rock this a train
We'll rock it to and for
Come to hide, come to love )don't know if this is right)
On this train there is no ???

On the love train, gotta get on board
Get on the love train, gotta get on board
Closer we've got to be, people oh yeah
Loving is what we need hey oh
Together we've got to be people
Loving is what we need hey oh

repeat chorus

Woman In You

written by M. Elliott, J.P. Maunick, A. Scott, R. Simpson

She loves me and I know she wants me oh oh yeah
She loves me yeah and I know she cares about me
Friends they keep on telling me
How she sits and talks about me
Folks they keep on telling me yeah
How she always talks about me

Oh I've been such a fool
Not to realize the love we had
Gonna take this chance to prove to myself
Love is not a game
You and I should feel the same

chorus
Cause I recognize the woman in you 2x

Let love free me and break these chains that bind me
It's taking me time to see it
The loving that surrounds me
I've been down on my luck before
See oh Lord I can't take no more of this pain
Now I know it's gonna be alright
Cause with you I see the light
It's this way

repeat chorus

In the corners of my mind
I can hear the voice of love
It talks about you
There's a place within my heart
Leaves me longing for the night
To vibe with you

repeat chorus

I can feel the woman, woman in you, feel woman in you
I recognize the woman in you
I can feel the woman

Crazy Love

written by : V. Morrison

I can hear her heartbeat from a thousand miles
And the heaven's open every time she smiles
And when I come to her that's where I belong
Yet I'm running to her like a river song

chorus
She gimme love love love love crazy love
She gimme love love love love crazy love

She's got a fine sense of humor
When I'm feeling lowdown
Yet when I come to her when the sun goes down
She takes away my troubles, takes away my grief
Takes away my heartache, go right to sleep

repeat chorus 2x

Yes I need her in the daytime
And I need her in the night
And I wanna holding my arms around her
And kiss and hug and kiss and hug her tight

And when I'm returning from so far away
She give me some sweet lovin'
Brighten up my day
Yet it make me righteous, ooh and it makes me whole
Yet it make me mellow down to my soul

repeat chorus

Jehovah

written by : M. Elliott, A. Gaye, T. Robinson

There's a vibe within the air
And it's every, everywhere
If you reach out you can hold it, hold it
If you only seek, seek the right way

Try love, Jah love, try love, Jah Jah love
Try love, Jah love, I love you

It's a feeling deep within
And without it life is really grim yeah
It fills a space of unhappiness
So, try a little loving
That's my request

chorus
Try a little lovin'
Cause it's lovin' we need
Letting go the pain
That makes my heart bleed
Try a little lovin'
Cause it's lovin' we need
Letting go the pain
That makes my heart bleed
Try a little love

If we only club together hey
And learn to live, live with one another
Tears or pains would never be hey
And to this I'm sure you'll all agree

Try love, Jah love, try Jah love, I said you gotta try, said you gotta try
Try love, Jah love, Jehovah I love you

repeat chorus

You've gotta try, try to know oh

You've gotta try, you know
Before it's too late
Ooh I don't wanna cry
Don't you know, don't you know

Cry Me A River

written by : M. Elliott, A. Gaye, T. Robinson, B. Forde

Like a tear that never falls
It's like a story left untold oh oh oh ah
Like a pain within ones heart oh yeah yeah yeah
Where do I find the words to start

chorus
Cry me a river that paths the way
Set my people free oh oh ah
Cry me a river that paths the way
To set my people free oh oh ah

I turn it over in my mind oh oh oh oh
So much to do, so little time oh oh oh ah
I said their path lies in the truth oh yeah yeah yeah
What can we do to help the youths

Cry me a river 4x

Strollin' On

written by : P. Robinson, M. Elliott

Strollin' on, strollin' on
Strollin' along with my girl
Holding her by her hand

See it's a feelin'
Which you've gotta experience for yourself
Lord it's a feelin' you have
When you're strollin' along with your girl

Thinking of things
Of things gone long by
All the times we spend
When we're strollin' along together
Yes I'm strollin' on
Yes I'm strollin' on

chorus
Strolling with my girl
Holding her by, holding her by her hand

Strollin' on on on, yeah oh yeah

repeat chorus

See in the country
Flowers, the cool breeze
The wind in her hair
Seems so sweet to me

So when you're in love
And she loves you too
Hand in hand, feelin' the vibes flow through
So when I kissed her lips
So soft so sweet as honey
Strollin' along with a beautiful girl like her
Cause I'm strollin' on
Yes I'm strollin' on
repeat chorus

Must Be A Way

written by : M. Elliott, A. Gaye, T. Robinson, B. Forde

Hey
Say whats happened to humanity
There's enough love for you, there's enough for me
A cup for you and a cup for me
Sharing the love, that's how it should be

Listen

In my raggy shirt and one pair of shoes
I tread along so confused
Mixed up illusions, lot of confusion
People building bombs, that's no solution
I say

chorus
Stand up for your rights, brother man
Must be a way somehow, don't give up

repeat chorus

Living in a city, surrounded by walls
So many stumbling blocks and pit falls
Can't afford to slip away, can't aslide
With the Lord on my side, how can I fall

Said I gotta stand up, said I gotta stand up for my right 2x

Say whats happened to humanity
There's enough love for you, there's enough for me
A cup for you and a cup for me
Sharing the love, that's how it should be

Sharing the love
A cup for you, a cup for me
Sharing the love, that's how it should be
A cup for you, a cup for me
Sharing the love, that's how it should be
Won't you stay
