    BOUNTY HUNTER REDS


    by Izanah Jones

    Let me take you where the cool breeze blow
    So high, so far from shore
    Let me take you where the cool breeze blow
    So high, so high, so high




    High on a hill far from the seashore
    I sit and watch the full moon glow
    The fog a come, it a look like snow
    Up a bamboo where the cool breeze blow




    And in the morning the sunshine flow
    The farmers wake and go to bush and grow
    Yam, cabbage, potato, chocho, coco and okra




    Me love to go where the cool breeze blow
    Up a bamboo where the sunshine flow
    Me love fer go where the cool breeze blows
    Up a bamboo where the sunshine flow




    Police and guard dem a drive around
    Sight my brother, attack him like a blood hound
    Beat him, kick him, throw him on the ground
    Take him money, all that could be found
    Grab him gold chain, shot him on the ground








    Dem stand for justice with dem dirty tricks
    Dem say they tried to do righteousness
    All I know, my brother is dead
    The Babylon boy gone
    shot him in de head




    Babylon, where you get your gun from?
    Put me brother under brutalization
    When him weak, you say that him strong
    When him right, you say that him wrong
    Babylon, where you get your gun from?




    We must stand firm against brutality
    Not be deceived by hypocrisy
    Dem may pluck a branch from our tree
    Yet we still stand rooted in reality




    Truth and culture belong to we
    Dem can't take dat out of me
    Reds always in our memory
    Nuff love for him by everybody




    Almighty father bless this land
    Guide and protect with Almighty hand
    Keep us far from evil power
    And be our guide through countless hour

    RAINDANCERS


    by Izanah Jones


    Let's go back to where we come from

    We are dancers in the rain

    Let's go back to where we come from

    We are dancers in the rain




    Can we turn back the hands of time?

    And take a walk, a walk behind the stars

    Under the moonlight you and me

    Dancing by the sea




    We are spirits, spirits of light

    Let's come together and unite

    Under the moonlight by the sea

    Dancing you and me




    I hold a very special place for you

    I know that you will always

    guide me through

    Under the moonlight by the sea

    Dancing through eternity




    Let's go back to where we come from

    We are dancers in the rain

    Let's go back to where we come from

    We are dancers in the rain






    Let the cool breeze take us there

    When the orange moon rises high

    More than fragrant memories

    We live a feeling that's alive




    Let's go back to where we come from

    We are dancers in the rain

    Let's go back to where we come from

    We are dancers in the rain




    We will dance over the sea

    We will dance into the moonlight

    We will dance with the starlight

    Through the galaxy you and me




    Let's go back to where we come from

    We are dancers in the rain

    CAN YOU FALL IN LOVE


    by Izanah Jones

    Can you fall in love
    With a stranger to your heart?
    Does the full moon wake you in the dark?
    Dreams of love, do they let you down?
    Hopes like people
    sometimes aren't around




    Can you fall in love?

    Can you fall in love?

    Can you fall in love?

    Can you fall in love?




    Do you lie awake at night
    Wishing you were young?
    Dreams running away
    You can't hold back the river of time




    Visions of love elude your soul's intent
    While deep inside dreams of love persist




    Can you fall in love?

    Can you fall in love?

    Can you fall in love?

    Can you fall in love?








    If you're true to yourself, open up your heart
    The moon shines brighter in the dark
    The love light is softer in the night
    Can you fall in love?




    Can you fall in love?

    Can you fall in love?

    Can you fall in love?

    Can you fall in love?




    Visions of love elude your soul's intent
    While deep inside dreams of love persist




    Can you fall in love?

    Can you fall in love?

    Can you fall in love?

    Can you fall in love?

    THIS TIGHTROPE


    by Izanah Jones

    Every evening as the sun goes down
    I sit on my back porch wondering
    How is it, you don't talk much anymore
    And when you do you stay
    behind closed doors




    You say one thing and then
    you do another
    You say today when you
    mean tomorrow
    While I'm crying, you smile
    Somehow the truth gets lost in lies




    Hanging on this tightrope of love

    Hanging on this tightrope of love

    Hanging on this tightrope of love

    Hanging on this tightrope of love




    Every evening I'm a circus clown
    Stepping on this tightrope up and down
    Sometimes I just don't get it right
    Swaying to the left, then to the right
    Looking down full of fright
    Somehow something doesn't feel right








    Hanging on this tightrope of love
    Hanging on this tightrope of love
    Hanging on this tightrope of love
    Hanging on this tightrope of love




    How can love slip by so mystically
    First you have it only to get down
    on your knees
    And pray and pray
    And pray and pray




    Hanging on this tightrope of love
    Hanging on this tightrope of love
    Hanging on this tightrope of love
    Hanging on this tightrope of love

    I SAW A RAVEN


    by Izanah Jones


    I saw a raven fly across the sky

    And I had to wonder why life can be unkind




    Motions swirling in and out of my mind

    When will this whirlwind unwind?

    The way you draw so close to me

    Then drift away so silently




    Your eyes deceived me

    With their charm for awhile

    Until I realized you were never genuine




    What is this?

    Only the memories of a dream

    That could never manifest

    And through the darkness and the pain

    I ask you, "What remains?"




    If you could let me be

    Without questioning why

    Then I could be so free

    Like the raven that flew across my eyes




    I saw a raven fly across my eyes

    And I had to wonder why life can be unkind

    I saw a raven fly across my eyes

    And I had to ask myself the reason why







    If you could let me be

    Without questioning why

    Then I could be so free

    Like the raven that flew across my eyes




    Motions swirling in and out of my mind

    When will this whirlwind unwind?

    The way you draw so close to me

    Then drift away so silently

    And what is this?

    Only the memories of a dream

    That could never manifest

    And through the darkness and the pain

    I ask you, "What remains?"




    If you could let me be

    Without questioning why

    Then I could be so free

    Like the raven that flew across my eyes




    I saw a raven fly across the sky

    And I had to wonder why life can be unkind

    I saw a raven fly across the sky

    And I had to ask myself the reason why

    IZANAH'S SONG


    by Izanah Jones

    How many seasons will it take

    How many years must I wait

    To see you, once again

    To touch you, once again




    I could wait a lifetime here

    Waiting for your sweet, sweet vibration

    Strictly irie iration




    You are east, I am west

    Still I know we've tried our best

    Jah know, we've really tried

    Our love, it will survive




    So many years have passed

    Since I wrote this song

    And still my love for you holds strong




    Jah know, I'm still searching for a love like ours

    Jah know, I'm searching in vain all those years







    So many places, so many faces

    And I just can't find another love like ours

    Don't know why we live separate lives

    When I need your smile to stay alive




    Something real, something I can feel

    Straight to the heart, that's our love

    Real from the start, our love




    No matter where you are,

    No matter what they say

    No one can take away

    Our love, holding strong

    Our love, all my life long

    Our love

    BUTTERFLIES OR BLUE SKIES


    by Izanah Jones

    Thought there were windows behind the door

    But when I reached, there weren't any more

    Butterflies or blue skies, blue skies

    No more butterflies or blue skies




    Angels can't live in captivity

    Overcome, overstand how to be free

    We're not walking down

    no one way street

    No, no we're not walking down

    no one way street




    Angel of light, you gave I sight

    At the final end your brightness

    conquered I

    And showed me how to be free

    Nuff respect, eternally




    How can you fool another

    When you're only fooling yourself?

    And if you try and run away

    You betray your own heart

    Your own heart




    You've got to be true to yourself

    Or you'll never be true to anyone else

    You've got to be true to yourself

    Or you'll never be true to anyone else

    No no no, not to anyone else







    You've got to be true to yourself

    Or you'll never be true to anyone else

    You've got to be true to yourself

    Or you'll never be true to anyone else

    No no no, not to anyone else




    How can you stand up for others

    And not stand up for yourself?

    How can you know a next man's heart

    And hardly know yourself?




    You've got to be true to yourself

    Or you'll never be true to anyone else

    You've got to be true to yourself

    Or you'll never be true to anyone else

    No no no, not to anyone else




    You've got to be true to yourself

    Or you'll never be true to anyone else

    You've got to be true to yourself

    Or you'll never be true to anyone else

    SAND CASTLES BY THE SEA


    by Izanah Jones

    Can’t go on living in

    Castles made of sand

    Pretending that I could be your woman

    I ain’t the one for you

    You ain’t the man for me

    Can we let go, set ourselves free?




    Holding onto empty dreams

    Living lies with broken wings

    Searching in strife

    For what could only seem




    Holding onto empty dreams

    Living lies with broken wings

    Searching in strife

    For what could only seem




    A merry go round and round

    Let me get off

    Get my feet on the ground

    Break free, grab a piece of my life




    One thing I know

    It ain’t easy to be free

    There are spiritual forces

    Left unseen




    But now that I’ve left you

    I feel so all alone

    Deeper into blue

    Left out in the cold









    But there ain’t no going back

    To castles made of sand

    False hopes based on fantasies

    Paper lives, worn out dreams

    Yet still I ponder you

    And all that could seem




    Round and round like a merry go round

    Round and round I get my feet off the ground

    Round and round, round and round

    Break free break free




    But now that I’ve left you

    I feel so all alone

    Deeper into blue

    Left out in the cold




    But there ain’t no going back

    To castles made of sand

    Pretending that I could be your woman

    I ain’t the one for you

    You ain’t the man for me

    Can we let go, set ourselves free?




    Castles made of sand wash into the sea

    Castles made of sand wash into the sea

    Castles made of sand wash into the sea

    Castles made of sand wash into the sea

    BITTER FOR YOU


    By Izanah Jones

    You don't treat me like your woman

    (Oh no you don't)

    You don't treat me like you care

    You don't treat me like you love me

    So where, where do we go from here?

    Where do we go from here?




    I'm on the other side of town

    Waiting for you to come around

    I've got better things to do

    Than hang around for you

    (why wait for you)




    You use me then abuse me

    Accuse me then refuse me

    You take what you want

    Are you ever gonna stop?

    Are you ever gonna stop?







    I can't stand it

    When I'm with you

    But when we're apart

    I suffer a broken heart




    Will this pain ever subside

    Your way of loving me

    I can't abide




    Will you learn to love me again?

    The way you used to

    When I was your woman




    To the bitter end

    To the bitter end

    To the bitter end

    To the bitter end

    Where Can We Begin


    by Izanah Jones

    Standing by the edge of the road

    Gazing at the starlit sky

    Wondering, where are you tonight?




    The cold wind blows through my hair

    The four wheels pass on by

    I'm hoping to catch a ride




    The winds of change

    Are blowing through my life

    I feel so lost beneath this

    endless desert sky




    The winds of change

    Are blowing through my life

    I feel so lost beneath this

    endless desert sky










    The time is short

    The road is long

    I've got to get to you

    Before you're gone




    I don't know where I'm gonna sleep tonight

    All I know is that I want you by my side

    I long to see you in the morning light

    And wake up knowing everything is right




    Never ever will I part from you again

    If you'll have me back, where can we

    begin?

    Never ever will I leave you again

    I want you back, where can we begin?




    The time is short

    The road is long

    I've got to get to you

    Before you're gone
