REFUSED Song Lyrics


Island Rose

written by : Gary Benson, Max Elliott, Livingstone Brown

This girl she looks so fine
How I wish that she was mine
How she inspires me
Beautiful for all to see
 
How can I catch your eye
Mustn't let this chance go by
She's much to nice to rush
I don't wanna push too much
 
chorus
Typical island rose
Excuse me I beg your pardon
Typical island rose
Won't you decorate my garden
 
Is she available
Or mission impossible
It drives me insane
Doesn't even know my name
Who knows that we could fly
Wonder if I dare to try
How can I take the heat
This girl may be out of reach
 
repeat chorus
 
She's looking like a dream
Straight out of a magazine
Jewel in a crown
Can't help looking up and down
 
I gotta buy my time
Wait until I see the sign
She likes to tease around
Oh this game has just begun
repeat chorus


Calling 4 A Positive Vibe

written by : R. Stevens, M. Elliott

Say we're talking to the people
Talking to the people then now
Maxi Priest Richie Stevens in town
 
Let's not dwell on the past
Let's fight for today
Why wait until tomorrow
We tried that yesterday
We're calling for a positive vibe
And a firm meditation
The seeds we need to sow
Take the youths off the streets
Give them proper education
That's the way to go
Mothers and fathers
Brothers and sisters
 
Say we're all in this thing together
Say we all got to care for one another
Can't live in the hype
Got to remember where we coming from
Cos here in this jungle
It's crying everyday
Love's the only answer
To bring it all back together
So there ain't no reason
For this bloodshed every day yeah oooh yeah
 
I remember those days
From my fathers generation
And how they used to roll
Peace and love on the corner, no bullets, no guns
No one acting cold
So where did all the love go
Tell me I wanna know
 
repeat chorus
 
Tell me how many times
How many lives
How many people gotta go
Tell me
How many days
How many weeks
How many months
I wanna know
Tell me
How much time
How many years
Can't you see it's out of control
 
Let's stop them now
Let's stop them now
 
Can't live in the hype
Got to remember where we coming from
Cause here in this jungle
It's crying every day
Love is the only answer
To bring it all back together
So there ain't no reason
For this bloodshed every day hey hey hey

Tell me how many times
How many lives
How many people gotta go
Tell me
How many days
How many weeks
How many months
I wanna know
Tell me
How much time
How many years
Can't you see it's out of control

How many times
How many lives
How many people gotta go
Tell me
How many days
How many weeks
How many months
I wanna know
Tell me
How much time
How many years
Can't you see it's out of control

Sweetest Love

written by : R. Russell, J. Cohen, C. Outten, M. Elliott

Spinning round in circles like a merry go round
Looking for my baby but you just can't be found
Don't you know I love you and that will never change
I've been branded a fool 'cos my love for you remains
Don't they say that love is blind

chorus
Nothing's gonna change my mind
Need you here by my side
The sweetest love the sweetest the sweetest love
You're the reason that I rise and shine
The reason why I breathe this life
The sweetest love the sweetest the sweetest love

Your love leaves me breathless and I have to say
I want your kisses for my breakfast I need them every day
If you say you love me my whole world will be this just cool
I gladly give up everything to prove my love to you yeah
Don't they say that love is blind
I be a fool for your love any time

repeat chorus

Through the darkness and the night
I see you standing in the light
And every part of me is reaching for you
Show my heart down through my eyes
And my love has no disguise
Girl I found heaven in you

repeat chorus 2x


My Girl Dis

written by : M. Elliott, R. Stevens, M. Arthurton, C. Dodd

Girl if I were your man
I'd make the impossible possible
And if you were my girl
Our love would be so incredible

Girl but if I were your man
I lay you down in a big bed of roses
And if you were my girl
I found a way to the ocean like Moses

And girl if you only take a chance
I show you what I can do
And baby let me show what I've got
In store for me and you
So give me just a minute
Let me get into it

chorus
So don't put ya foot inna mi corner
Cause a my girl dis a my girl dis
A long time ???  ???
And a my girl dis a my girl dis
So don't push yourself inna mi corner
Cause a my girl dis a my girl dis
You just come on???  ???
A mi a ??? come dis a ??? come dis????

Wait a minute just a second
Cause you're moving much too fast
The race is not for the swift
Now there's no need for you to get excited
Can't you see that she's already made her pick

Now if that's what you're thinking Richie Stevens
I've got the numbers that's the trick
And there's something in the way she feels about me
I feel a chemistry that really makes us click

Well there is something that I've got to confess
Second Maxi Priest make them get di undressed
???? on the ???  I'm beating my chest
I know I won't see you there
And girl if you only take a chance
I show you what I can do
And baby let me show you what I've got
In store for me and you
So give me just a minute
Let me get into it

repeat chorus


Set Me Free

written by : C. Outten, W. Johnson, M. Elliott

There's no mistake in what I feel right now no
Sitting in your livingroom tell me what's it all about
My whole world has changed ever since you been around
Tried to get myself together but it's all upside down

chorus

What do you mean about maybe hear you now
You might as well lock me up and cage me oh
I'm a man and I've got needs
And my needs you can't seem to see
If you got a heart baby won't you set me free yeah yeah
(Tell me what's going on and what's it all about)

Sweet music playing on and oh girl it's so fantastic
But if you keep telling me no I'm gonna make my own exit
And then I see you want me to stay
Now you keep on telling me no then you wanna play around
But as I reach the door to make my exit
You keep calling me back girl I can't take it no wohwohwoh

repeat chorus

I know when, I know where, I know how to please a woman
And baby I know every move and every button
I tried to take it easy just the way you'd want me to
But I tell you baby you don't seem to feel the same as I do
All my advances you're resisting
Access to your heart, area restricted oh

repeat chorus 2x

What do you mean
What do you mean about maybe hear you now
You might as well lock me up and cage me oh
Understand where I'm coming from baby
I know you're not blind, deaf or dumb
What do you mean

Am Not Perfect

You may not know this baby

Never stop to question why, no no no
Down the road mistakes will be made, yeah yeah yeah
No matter sometimes we try

I'm not perfect and I don't pretend to be
My heart is willing but my structure??? sometimes won't listen to me

Cause you've always been straight with me, ain't it love
Never wanna leave you lonely, no

And with this long lost joy I found
I throw everything in, nothing to hide from you, no
I provide for you, what's right for you
And you never hear me complain or falter never again, no

Now you may have some secrets
That you're so longing to share
There's no better time to say it, oh babe
Let's talk about it and leave it right here

I know we're not perfect and I don't expect you to be
You're just a woman with a human ability
But you can be good to me and if I'm good to you
Everything will be just fine, ain't it love
Never wanna leave you lonely no

And with this long lost joy I found
I throw everything in, nothing to hide from you
I provide for you, what's right for you
You never hear me complain or falter never again no no no

Never stop to question why, no
Down the road mistakes will be made, ah yeah

Cry For The Children

written by : B. Hammond, I.A. Lindo, M. Elliott

Slow down everyone pay attention
Let us reason for a while
I'm worried about this every day killing
That is turning into style
Don't try to convince it's normal
Playing with human lives
I don't know about you
But I know it brings tears to my eyes

chorus
And I cry for the children
And I pray for them
That someday consciousness will once again
Be the answer to our prayers oh yeah

Now I'm tired of all the goings on around us everyday
How did the little bitty innocent babies become pray by the way
How could we allow ourselves to go so far
I'm almost certain we've forgotten who we are
I'm wide awake in a dream that never ends
And my heart cries out for help everyday

repeat chorus

Oh yeah oh yeah I pray Lord I pray
How many more lives do you need for your games
Cause we're counting
How many more mothers will you leave in pain
Cause it's mounting
Could you give me a time or a day
How much longer we will have to wait
Will there be sunshine and no trace of crime when I wake

repeat chorus 2x

I pray said I pray I pray I pray
