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
