"Speak Life" lyrics - DAMIAN MARLEY

"Speak Life"

I pray thee, I pray thee
Once again
I wonder to be surrounded by ones with such talent... ya know

Speak life
Live a humble and meek life
Ordinary day of the week life
Try to search and seek life

Way up
Keep your head up and stay up
Even when you sore and pain love
Never given up till its game up
Keep your aim up

And focus
Don't concentrate to what's bogus
Never set law far upon us
Handle your biz like grown ups, Own up

It's amazing
The way Jah fire keeps blazing
That's why I constantly praise him
For some of them it's a phase
So they're gazing

On the street lights
Dem they catch up in street fights
'Cause unpretending they street wise
And put to end to a brief life
I feel Like...

It's a mystery
How we can keep repeating our history
Making the same mistakes as our ancestry
Seem like all of life lessons missed with
It's risky

So give praises
One day you may find your oasis
Rise up to the challenge you're faced with
Be a pool and creative
You'll make it

Its basics (Wo-Oooah)
People been though in it for ages (Wo-Oooah)
Many other cultures and places (Wo-Oooah)
On the regular basis (Wo-Oooah)
They're so many cases

Lets face it (mann)
Way too much time has been wasted (mann)
Building military bases
Fighting our war with no basis

Life is sacred (Wo-Oooah)
And every baby born naked (Wo-Oooah)
Some of 'em nah like guatala ris big (Wo-Oooah)
And don't care what they making (Wo-Oooah-oh)
They can't take it

So speak life (mann)
All dis darkness don't feel right (mann)
