Verse 1

A Long Way

Written By: Gibril Mansaray

Chorus
Im a long way from home
im facing trials everyday ina mi life
dem say i got to cut off my lucks
just to survive
dem say
rasta cant get a piece of di pie

Verse 1
I am a long way from home,
i travelled 100,000 miles
like a dog chasing a bone,
remember back in the day
when i left home
hugged my brother and kabila
with a nappy afro
it was me my mother and the love of my life
she said she
will never leave me alone
so we proceeded to travel
my road, 2 months later
mama had to head back home
she left me
on my feet standing alone
moved to the natty,
moved in with Esco
then i messed up and got caught by 5.0
so i laid low
and shift towns to chicago

Verse 2,
French lyrics

bridge
now im so far away from home
everyday i just got to keep up the fight
i know my mother will always stand by my side
whereever that i go they will feel the vibe
Now you so far away from home
everyday you just got to keep up the fight
you know your mother will always stand by your side
where ever you go they will feel your vibe

Verse 3
Say we no dey want
anything with
Your babylon system
with your Western political system
All we want is a african
African ,
african
African unity
for all the african people
African ital
for the african children
Mi no want see no more
civil wars in our countries
And no more curruptuon in our country
Africa mi go back a mi home
