Lyrics

Never End

Written By: Soulragga

CHORUS:
(RON C)

I’VE GOT TO KEEP MY COOL, BUT WHAT CAN I DO
I WANT TO BE WITH YOU, BUT YOU SAY WE’RE THROUGH
I KNOW A MAN AIN’T SUPPOSED TO CRY
BUT IF YOU SEE A TEAR FALLIN FROM MY EYE, DON’T BE SURPRISED
CAUSE I LOVE YOU GIRL, I WANT YOU HERE IN MY WORLD
BUT NOW YOU’RE GONE AWAY, I’M MISSING YOU EVERYDAY

VERSE 1:
(JUNYA B)

THE FIRST TIME I SAW YOUR FACE AND THE SPARKLE IN YOUR EYE
I KNEW RIGHT THEN AND THERE I HAD TO MAKE THE GIRL MINE
THEN YOU SMILED AT ME, YOU SENT A SHIVER UP MY SPINE
I TRIED TO PLAY IT COOL, BUT COULDN’T GET YOU OFF MY MIND
CAUSE YOU WERE SO BEAUTIFUL AND YOU TREATED ME SO KIND
YOU AND ME TOGETHER AND TOGETHER ALL THE TIME
LIFE LOST LUSTER, YOU BROUGHT IT BACK TO SHINE
NOW I’M WANDERING WHY YOU WOULDA LEAVE IT ALL BEHIND
DO YOU REMEMBER WHERE WE WERE THE FIRST TIME WE MADE LOVE
LAYING INNA MY BED, FEELIN FREE LIKE A DOVE
LISTEN GREGORY ISAACS, HIS COOL RUB-A-DUB
KISSED YOU ON YOUR LIPS, YOUR BODY FIT ME LIKE A GLOVE
YOU WERE MY NIGHT NURSE, YOU COME FI HEAL ME WITH YOUR LOVE
WERE A SHINING ANGEL, SENT SHINING FROM ABOVE
ALWAYS THERE FOR ME WHEN PUSH CAME TO SHOVE
NOW YOU’RE GONE, I NEED YOU BACK, PLEASE BRING ME BACK YOUR LOVE

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
(RON C)

OOH BABY, SWEET LADY, YOU DRIVIN ME CRAZY
YOU MAKE ME SO COMPLETE, WITHOUT YOU I CAN’T SLEEP
GOT TO KEEP GOING STRONG, I KNOW LIFE GOES ON
UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN, FEELINGS FOR YOU WILL NEVER END

VERSE 2:
(JUNYA B)

I THOUGHT I WANTED TO BE A REGGAE SUPERSTAR
TO BE WITH LOTS OF WOMEN AND DRIVE A FANCY CAR
TO MAKE A BUNCH OF RECORDS AND GO OUT ON A TOUR
SINCE AGE FIFTEEN, I THOUGHT THAT’S WHAT MY LIFE WAS FOR
BUT NOW ME NAH CARE ABOUT THE FORTUNE OR THE FAME
ALL THAT ME LONG FOR IS TO HEAR YOU CALL MY NAME
ALL THAT ME DREAM BOUT IS TO REKINDLE THE FLAME
I PROMISE I’M A CHANGE AND I TAKE ALL OF THE BLAME

Written By: Soulragga & Don B

CHORUS:
(RON C)

KEEP UP THE FAITH…
CAUSE I KNOW SOMETIMES THINGS GET REAL HARD AND YOU WANNA RUN AND HIDE AWAY
EVEN THOUGH IT MAY SEEM HOPELESS, WHAT YOU GOTTA KNOW IS, THINGS ARE GONNA CHANGE
EVEN IF YOU’RE ALL ALONE, YOUR HEART IS YOUR HOME, I FEEL YOUR PAIN
AND THE SUN WILL SHINE… AFTER THE RAIN… AFTER THE RAIN…

VERSE 1:
(JUNYA B)

FROM UNO GIVE YOU SHALL RECEIVE
PERSEVERE AND ACHIEVE
KEEP THE FAITH AND BELIEVE… THAT ANOTHER WAY…

SEE ME BEG UNO OVERSTAND
SETTLE DOWN, SET A PLAN… FOR ANOTHER DAY
UNO FED UP AND HAD ENOUGH
TIMES DEM ROUGHER THAN ROUGH
AND UNO WAAN GWAAN PICK UP… AND RUN AWAY
DROP YOUR FEARS, STOP YOUR CRY
WIPE THE TEARS FROM YOUR EYES
AFTER THE RAIN YOU BOUND FI PICK UP… A SUNNY DAY
SEND PRAISES UP TO JAH JAH
YUNNO HIM A THE FATHER
GIVE THANKS FOR FAMILY
FOR MY MAMA AND MY PAPA
AND FOR MY LITTLE SISTER
MY FRIENDS DEM LIKE MY BROTHER
INNA THIS YA CRAZINESS YUNNO WE HAFFI COME TOGETHER
…WE’VE GOTTA COME TOGETHER…

CHORUS

VERSE 2:
(DON B)

THIS MUSIC, I USE IT, TO REACH THESE CHILDREN IN THE STREETS
CAUSE A FUSION, I MELT MY SPIRIT WITH THIS BEAT
UNRELENTLESS WITH THIS HEAT, ANTI-TOXIC WHAT I LEAK
NURTURE THE MEEK WHEN I SPEAK, AND I NEVER ACCEPT DEFEAT
VICTORY IS FOR ME, IF AT FIRST I DON’T ACHIEVE I TRY TILL I SUCCEED
TRULY BLESSED CAUSE I BELIEVE
ANY THOUGHT I CAN CONCIEVE, I CAN MAKE IT BE
SOMETIMES I JUST CAN’T SEE WHEN THE RAIN IS BLINDING ME

BUT I LIKE WHAT I SEE, AND I’M HOPIN’ THAT WE…
CAN GET TOGETHER SOMETIME IN THE FUTURE”

CHORUS

VERSE 3:
(MISTA SWIFT)

I SEE YOU TALKIN’ TO THEM OTHER DUDES
FINGERS SHAKIN’, YOUR NECK ROLLIN’, CATCHIN’ ATTITUDES
I JUST THOUGHT I’D GIVE YOU A CHANGE OF PACE
CAUSE YOU ABOUT THE BADDEST CHICK THAT I DONE SEEN IN THE PLACE
BUT DON’T GET IT TWISTED CAUSE I CROSSOVER A LITTLE
CHOCOLATE EXTREME, YOUNG PIMPIN’, OLD-SCHOOLERS CALL ME SWIZZLE
SO WE CAN CONVERSATE, I WANNA KNOW WHAT’S ON YOUR BRAIN
PLUS YOUR PARTNER CUTE AND CEEZ WANNA KNOW HER NAME
