    DREAMS LYRICS (by R.Hunt)



    I dream of better days
    I want to rest my head in a better place
    Sing songs of better ways
    Jah is due my praise
    I dream of better days
    I want to rest my head in a better place
    Sing songs of better ways
    Oh Jah!


    It’s time to make an exodus
    Forward outta Babylon
    This ain’t no place for us
    Inna them system
    we na go place we trust
    Babylon a fall
    Them a go bite the dust
    Them affi buy the dust
    So we rise up with the times
    Lifestyle conscious
    Nah mix up with the swain
    We affi die righteous
    Jah deh pon me mind
    A divine fine touch
    So they can’t come and hit me
    with disease and virus


    I dream of better days
    I want to rest my head in a better place
    Sing songs of better ways
    Jah is due my praise
    I dream of better days
    I want to rest my head in a better place
    Sing songs of better ways
    Oh Jah!
    Jah is due my praise


    Oh Jah!
    I dream on better days
    Of better ways




    And so we step it
    March out and left it
    The system’s corrupt
    So it’s time we correct it
    Delete the defected
    Flee from the wreckage
    Cause mistry Babylon a fall
    Listen to my message
    Been chanting for years
    With no fear
    It’s progressive
    True blood, sweat and tears
    Till appears still selective
    We still are there
    Till the last Jah directive
    And have no fear
    Cause we still protected



    I dream of better days
    I want to rest my head in a better place
    Sing songs of better ways
    Jah is due my praise
    I dream of better days
    I want to rest my head in a better place
    Sing songs of better ways
    Oh Jah!
    Of better days
    In a better place
    Of better ways
    Oh Jah!
    Forward for ever
    I dream on better days
    Of better ways

    The whole world is mad

    And they just don't understand

     

    They killed off all my friends

    Free freedom fighters

    The whole world is mad

    And they just don't understand

     

    Yeah

    The whole world's gone crazy

     

    They lie, shoot, kill and maim

    And tell them that they're all gone insane

    Claiming that they should be locked away

    Just because they call for human rights

     

    The whole world has gone mad

    And they just don't seem to understand

    The whole world is mad

    And they just don't seem to understand

     

    Crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy

    The whole wide world

    Matisyahu - "One Day"

    Sometimes I lay
    Under the moon
    And thank God I'm breathing
    Then I pray
    Don't take me soon
    'Cause I am here for a reason

    Sometimes in my tears I drown
    But I never let it get me down
    So when negativity surrounds
    I know some day it'll all turn around because...

    All my life I've been waiting for
    I've been praying for
    For the people to say
    That we don't wanna fight no more
    There will be no more wars
    And our children will play
    One day [6x]

    It's not about
    Win or lose
    'Cause we all lose
    When they feed on the souls of the innocent
    Blood-drenched pavement
    Keep on moving though the waters stay raging

    In this maze you can lose your way (your way)
    It might drive you crazy but don't let it faze you, no way (no way)

    Sometimes in my tears I drown (I drown)
    But I never let it get me down (get me down)
    So when negativity surrounds (surrounds)
    I know some day it'll all turn around because...

    All my life I've been waiting for
    I've been praying for
    For the people to say
    That we don't wanna fight no more
    There will be no more wars
    And our children will play
    One day [6x]

    One day this all will change
    Treat people the same
    Stop with the violence
    Down with the hate

    One day we'll all be free
    And proud to be
    Under the same sun
    Singing songs of freedom like
    One day [2x]

    All my life I've been waiting for
    I've been praying for
    For the people to say
    That we don't wanna fight no more
    There will be no more wars
    And our children will play
    One day [6x]

    (Do be de do, do be de do do do
    Do be de do da do da, do da do da do)

    When life has got you down,
    And everything about it makes you blue,
    Pick up, keep moving on,
    'Cause that's the very best thing you can do
    Say hey Woz whatever this is... it's alright.
    Hey John this too shall pass,
    It's a season in your life, yeah... yeah

    Well I'm kicking down the back streets
    And people want to break my stride
    Everyone has a time when they lose their pride
    But when I'm old and in my chair,
    Thinking back... looking back,
    What will I remember?
    All the good times... they were alright

    (Do be de do, do be de do do do
    Do be de do da do da, do da do da do)

    When every morning brings,
    A struggle just to get up from the bed,
    Say hey man whatever this is... it's alright.
    Hey man this too shall pass,
    It's a lesson in your life, yeah... yeah

    Well I'm kicking down the back streets
    And people want to break my stride
    Everyone has a time when they lose their pride
    But when I'm old and in my chair,

    What will I remember?
