Biography

Willis Knowles, born June 30, 1984
Is a Bahamian reggae artist/singer songwriter. In early 2008 a love of reggae prompted Willis to get together with a few other musicans to create Willis and The Illest band, one of the hottest groups to hit the Bahamian music scene in a long time.
The Illest Reggae Band is a twisted amalgamation of aggressive roots, rock and dub-style reggae fused with their maniac blend of rock, ska, reggae, hip hop, r&b and jazz alike. Fronted by Willis and the soulful wailing of Mandisa Kerr, the band continues bridging the gap of music, people and culture through original songs and countless covers. Known for their energetic, uplifting performances, The Illest is poised to take their message of acceptance, love and I-nity to audiences everywhere.

Lyrics

Hey

Written By: Willis Knowles

Verse 1

Why we waste ourselves away

I know you don’t know what to say

How did our love; love slip away

Hey!

Cause I gave you all of me

And you could not even see

No one would love you better than me

Hook:

That’s why I feel so confused

And at times I feel used

And when we talk I feel what’s the use

Was it something I did?

Or something I said?

I try my best to get you out of my head

Chorus:

Hey Heeyyy Hey

Heyyy Hey

Heyyy Hey

Now I say

Hey Heeyyy Hey

Heyyy Hey

Heyyy Hey

Verse 2:

Now I’ve gatta let you go

But my heart keeps telling me no

How did our love; love slip away

Hey!

Cause I gave you all of me

And you could not even see

No one would love you better than me

Hook:

That’s why I feel so confused

And at times I feel used

And when we talk I feel what’s the use

Was it something I did?

Or something I said?

I try my best to get you out of my head

Chorus:

Hey Heeyyy Hey

Heyyy Hey

Heyyy Hey

Now I say

Hey Heeyyy Hey

Heyyy Hey

Heyyy Hey

Bridge:

I try to overstand

And I tried to be a man

But how did our love slip away

Hey!

Cause I gave you all of me

And you could not even see

No one would love you better than me

Hook:

That’s why I feel so confused

And at times I feel used

And when we talk I feel what’s the use

Was it something I did?

Or something I said?

I try my best to get you out of my head

Chorus

Jah'Sent Love

Written By: Willis Knowles

(verse 1)
You give me a love
That never shakes nor trembles
In any way
Confident in all its many levels
It could never fadeaway
The love particles of our souls
Meshing concretely
Existing in reality
No form of separation will
Ever get in our way
Strong and sure
Standing firm and tall
Facing all the good
And the bad and all the Odds
All the odds of this love weather
Our love will never fall I say

(chorus)
So that is why I'm giving
Thanks and praises
For this Jah'sent love right away
That is why I'm giving
Thanks and praises
For this Jah'sent love I say

(verse 2)
So regal in your stature
When you walk it takes my breathe away
Purest love of loves
For a smile
You can take my pain away
Our eyes locking
non-verbal communicating
So patiently in what you say to me
Its our own language
And we speak it in our way
Strong and sure
Standing firm and tall
Facing all the good
And the bad and all the odds
All the odds of this love weather
Our love will never fall I say

(Chorus)
So that is why I'm giving
Thanks and praises
For this Jah'sent love right away
That is why I'm giving
Thanks and praises
For this Jah'sent love I say

(bridge)
So now I'm thanking Jah
For making you so perfect genetically
So that it matches me
So now we're twisted
And joined by love bonds so strong you see

(Chorus)
So that is why I'm giving
Thanks and praises
For this Jah'sent love right away
That is why I'm giving
Thanks and praises
For this Jah'sent love I say
