Lyrics

LOVER DIVINE

Written By: RAYMOND WRIGHT

You should be sitting in a high chair
the strength of your love none can compare.
Being pampered and patted all day and the angles wash and comb your hair.

You should be in a high place so the whole world can see your face..
And all the king horses and all the kings men, observe and serve with grace.
I wish you the best in life, your efforts and all your tries.
Will one day come to light and keep you shining oh so bright.
Everyone knows that you’ re great, creation wrote unspeakable beauty on your face,
The Gods must crazy, I’m lost for words to say.


Lover divine the sea is storming.
Throw me the life line, please to pull me up.
You know that I am ready to throw the water in your cup.
I pray you take a little time, to consider bout us, consider bout us.



I should be loving you up everyday.
Giving it to you, again and again.
Jah knows I live to hear these mystery words you say, drive me insane.

I should be the one you’ re near cause no other man,
Can see you so clear, essence of Royalty busting out on you from everywhere
I wish you the best in life, your efforts and all your tries.
Will work out right, and come to light, and keep you shining oh so bright.
Give me the ok to have my way, so I can show you things that I can’t say.
I wanna be your sugar daddy, just put yourself on me

Lover divine the sea is storming.
Throw me the life line, please to pull me up.
You know that I am ready to throw the water in your cup.
I pray you take a little time, to consider bout us, consider bout us.



SHINING DOWN ON ME

Written By: RAYMOND WRIGHT

Shine, shine, shine, shine, shining down on me.
Rain, rain, rain, rain, raining down me.
V 1. Even though the tides are low, and I got no where to go,
My faith will lead me on, comes what may I must be strong.
No it’s not an easy road, life never promise no bed of rose.
So I must act fast, to shed this heavy load.
Pause for a minute, take a look around.
There’s so much good things echoing the sound.
Singing songs that words cannot tell,
All things bright and beautiful, with my soul its well.

CHO: When I wake to see another sun rise, shunning down on me,
Lord I got to give thanks, and even when it’s raining:
Showers of blessings come, raining down on me, and I’ve got to give thanks.

V 2. I know you know some times it seems, only pressure for you and me,
There’s no way, things could be like that, dem mussi waan fi gi mi heart attack.
When you try your best to strive, and a man waan give you a fight, oh lord.
That’s a lot to take, what should you do.
Just like the old man, listening to a song.
Always working, never do no wrong.
And it don’t matter your sweat and your tears, you’ll realize.
It’s only life you must bear.

BRIDGE: Tell myself I’m gonna let you go, I try every time but I can’t get enough.
Now I know I’m just gonna let things flow, for you and me.
Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you cry.
Couldn’t get no sleep my love, if there’s tears in your eyes.
When the rain come falling through, do the best that I can do.
Keep you shelter from the storm, keep you feeling fine.

CARRY ON

Written By: RAYMOND WRIGHT

CHO: Just another day and we must carry on, on, on, on.
Unto Zion I we rolling onward home, on, on, on

In spite of these atrocities, let me tell you this for sure
Everyone deserves the truth, know the roots and feel at home
He, who has good will for man, represents the highest throne
Love is still the ultimate, way of living, here on earth

CHO: Just another day and we must carry on, on, on, on.
Unto Zion I we rolling onward home, on, on, on

Truths of his divinity, even as it as been told
Existed up in highly-ness, long before the first grass grow
Now it is secrecy, hidden from the youths to know
We declare His Majesty, and we know time will tell

CHO: Just another day and we must carry on, on, on, on.
Unto Zion I we rolling onward home, on, on, on.

We were made to live in peace, instead we waging war and woes
Innocent and needless blood, mamma earth has come to know
Fighting for supremacy, industrious imperialistic goals
Laugh and say that all is well, think its heaven but its hell.
