Lyrics

I Wanna Be There

Written By: Miriam Mark

I wanna be there, when the sound of steel pan fills the air
I wanna be there, when its mass and colours everywhere
A celebration we call we Festival
A time to let go, make bacchanal
I’m gonna release my stress, lift up my voice and say

This is my time, to thank the Lord that I am free
This is my time, to bring out the joy inside of me
This is the time to shine, to be the best that I can be
So hear me when I say, I wanna be there

So move out the way, just lemme pass
I come to play, to play me mass
Ah movin left, ah movin right
You just cah hold me back tonight
A waving me rag, waving me flag
Flyin it high, lacin de sky
No knife nor gun, we jumpin as one
I’m gonna be there

I wanna be there, when masqueraders hit the streets
I’m gonna be there, when pulsating rhythms make me move my feet
And when its time for parade and de jouvert
I’ll be chipping and jumpin all de way
I’ll embrace every creed and race
And together we’ll break away

This is my time, to raise my voice in harmony
This is my time, to beautify de whole country
Put away all de hate, only love
De time to show just what we’re made of
Believe me when I say, I’m gonna be there


I will embrace this moment, make it mine
Come take my hand, this is our time to shine

This is my time to shine,
To be the best that I can be
Believe me when I say
I’m gonna be there!!
(chant 2x then fade)
