1. BOUNTY HUNTER REDS

by Izanah Jones

acoustic-guitar2

Let me take you where the cool breeze blow
So high, so far from shore
Let me take you where the cool breeze blow
So high, so high, so high

High on a hill far from the seashore
I sit and watch the full moon glow
The fog a come, it a look like snow
Up a bamboo where the cool breeze blow

And in the morning the sunshine flow
The farmers wake and go to bush and grow
Yam, cabbage, potato, chocho, coco and okra

Me love to go where the cool breeze blow
Up a bamboo where the sunshine flow
Me love fer go where the cool breeze blows
Up a bamboo where the sunshine flow

Police and guard dem a drive around
Sight my brother, attack him like a blood hound
Beat him, kick him, throw him on the ground
Take him money, all that could be found
Grab him gold chain, shot him on the ground

Dem stand for justice with dem dirty tricks
Dem say they tried to do righteousness
All I know, my brother is dead
The Babylon boy gone
shot him in de head

Babylon, where you get your gun from?
Put me brother under brutalization
When him weak, you say that him strong
When him right, you say that him wrong
Babylon, where you get your gun from?

We must stand firm against brutality
Not be deceived by hypocrisy
Dem may pluck a branch from our tree
Yet we still stand rooted in reality

Truth and culture belong to we
Dem can’t take dat out of me
Reds always in our memory
Nuff love for him by everybody

Almighty father bless this land
Guide and protect with Almighty hand
Keep us far from evil power
And be our guide through countless hour

 

2. RAINDANCERS

by Izanah Jones

Let’s go back to where we come from
We are dancers in the rain
Let’s go back to where we come from
We are dancers in the rain

Can we turn back the hands of time?
And take a walk, a walk behind the stars
Under the moonlight you and me
Dancing by the sea

We are spirits, spirits of light
Let’s come together and unite
Under the moonlight by the sea
Dancing you and me

I hold a very special place for you
I know that you will always
guide me through
Under the moonlight by the sea
Dancing through eternity

Let’s go back to where we come from
We are dancers in the rain
Let’s go back to where we come from
We are dancers in the rain

Let the cool breeze take us there
When the orange moon rises high
More than fragrant memories
We live a feeling that’s alive

Let’s go back to where we come from
We are dancers in the rain
Let’s go back to where we come from
We are dancers in the rain

We will dance over the sea
We will dance into the moonlight
We will dance with the starlight
Through the galaxy you and me

Let’s go back to where we come from
We are dancers in the rain

 

3. CAN YOU FALL IN LOVE

by Izanah Jones

Can you fall in love
With a stranger to your heart?
Does the full moon wake you in the dark?
Dreams of love, do they let you down?
Hopes like people
sometimes aren’t around

Can you fall in love?
Can you fall in love?
Can you fall in love?
Can you fall in love?

Do you lie awake at night
Wishing you were young?
Dreams running away
You can’t hold back the river of time

Visions of love elude your soul’s intent
While deep inside dreams of love persist

Can you fall in love?
Can you fall in love?
Can you fall in love?
Can you fall in love?

If you’re true to yourself, open up your heart
The moon shines brighter in the dark
The love light is softer in the night
Can you fall in love?

Can you fall in love?
Can you fall in love?
Can you fall in love?
Can you fall in love?

Visions of love elude your soul’s intent
While deep inside dreams of love persist

Can you fall in love?
Can you fall in love?
Can you fall in love?
Can you fall in love?

 

4. THIS TIGHTROPE

by Izanah Jones

Every evening as the sun goes down
I sit on my back porch wondering
How is it, you don’t talk much anymore
And when you do you stay
behind closed doors

You say one thing and then
you do another
You say today when you
mean tomorrow
While I’m crying, you smile
Somehow the truth gets lost in lies

Hanging on this tightrope of love
Hanging on this tightrope of love
Hanging on this tightrope of love
Hanging on this tightrope of love

Every evening I’m a circus clown
Stepping on this tightrope up and down
Sometimes I just don’t get it right
Swaying to the left, then to the right
Looking down full of fright
Somehow something doesn’t feel right

Hanging on this tightrope of love
Hanging on this tightrope of love
Hanging on this tightrope of love
Hanging on this tightrope of love

How can love slip by so mystically
First you have it only to get down
on your knees
And pray and pray
And pray and pray

Hanging on this tightrope of love
Hanging on this tightrope of love
Hanging on this tightrope of love
Hanging on this tightrope of love

 

5. I SAW A RAVEN

by Izanah Jones

I saw a raven fly across the sky
And I had to wonder why life can be unkind

Motions swirling in and out of my mind
When will this whirlwind unwind?
The way you draw so close to me
Then drift away so silently

Your eyes deceived me
With their charm for awhile
Until I realized you were never genuine

What is this?
Only the memories of a dream
That could never manifest
And through the darkness and the pain
I ask you, “What remains?”

If you could let me be
Without questioning why
Then I could be so free
Like the raven that flew across my eyes

I saw a raven fly across my eyes
And I had to wonder why life can be unkind
I saw a raven fly across my eyes
And I had to ask myself the reason why

If you could let me be
Without questioning why
Then I could be so free
Like the raven that flew across my eyes

Motions swirling in and out of my mind
When will this whirlwind unwind?
The way you draw so close to me
Then drift away so silently
And what is this?
Only the memories of a dream
That could never manifest
And through the darkness and the pain
I ask you, “What remains?”

If you could let me be
Without questioning why
Then I could be so free
Like the raven that flew across my eyes

I saw a raven fly across the sky
And I had to wonder why life can be unkind
I saw a raven fly across the sky
And I had to ask myself the reason why

 

6. IZANAH’S SONG

by Izanah Jones

How many seasons will it take
How many years must I wait
To see you, once again
To touch you, once again

I could wait a lifetime here
Waiting for your sweet, sweet vibration
Strictly irie iration

You are east, I am west
Still I know we’ve tried our best
Jah know, we’ve really tried
Our love, it will survive

So many years have passed
Since I wrote this song
And still my love for you holds strong

Jah know, I’m still searching for a love like ours
Jah know, I’m searching in vain all those years

So many places, so many faces
And I just can’t find another love like ours
Don’t know why we live separate lives
When I need your smile to stay alive

Something real, something I can feel
Straight to the heart, that’s our love
Real from the start, our love

No matter where you are,
No matter what they say
No one can take away
Our love, holding strong
Our love, all my life long
Our love

 

7. BUTTERFLIES OR BLUE SKIES

by Izanah Jones

Thought there were windows behind the door
But when I reached, there weren’t any more
Butterflies or blue skies, blue skies
No more butterflies or blue skies

Angels can’t live in captivity
Overcome, overstand how to be free
We’re not walking down
no one way street
No, no we’re not walking down
no one way street

Angel of light, you gave I sight
At the final end your brightness
conquered I
And showed me how to be free
Nuff respect, eternally

How can you fool another
When you’re only fooling yourself?
And if you try and run away
You betray your own heart
Your own heart

You’ve got to be true to yourself
Or you’ll never be true to anyone else
You’ve got to be true to yourself
Or you’ll never be true to anyone else
No no no, not to anyone else

You’ve got to be true to yourself
Or you’ll never be true to anyone else
You’ve got to be true to yourself
Or you’ll never be true to anyone else
No no no, not to anyone else

How can you stand up for others
And not stand up for yourself?
How can you know a next man’s heart
And hardly know yourself?

You’ve got to be true to yourself
Or you’ll never be true to anyone else
You’ve got to be true to yourself
Or you’ll never be true to anyone else
No no no, not to anyone else

You’ve got to be true to yourself
Or you’ll never be true to anyone else
You’ve got to be true to yourself
Or you’ll never be true to anyone else

 

8. SAND CASTLES  BY THE SEA

by Izanah Jones

Can’t go on living in
Castles made of sand
Pretending that I could be your woman
I ain’t the one for you
You ain’t the man for me
Can we let go, set ourselves free?

Holding onto empty dreams
Living lies with broken wings
Searching in strife
For what could only seem

Holding onto empty dreams
Living lies with broken wings
Searching in strife
For what could only seem

A merry go round and round
Let me get off
Get my feet on the ground
Break free, grab a piece of my life

One thing I know
It ain’t easy to be free
There are spiritual forces
Left unseen

But now that I’ve left you
I feel so all alone
Deeper into blue
Left out in the cold

But there ain’t no going back
To castles made of sand
False hopes based on fantasies
Paper lives, worn out dreams
Yet still I ponder you
And all that could seem

Round and round like a merry go round
Round and round I get my feet off the ground
Round and round, round and round
Break free break free

But now that I’ve left you
I feel so all alone
Deeper into blue
Left out in the cold

But there ain’t no going back
To castles made of sand
Pretending that I could be your woman
I ain’t the one for you
You ain’t the man for me
Can we let go, set ourselves free?

Castles made of sand wash into the sea
Castles made of sand wash into the sea
Castles made of sand wash into the sea
Castles made of sand wash into the sea

 

9. BITTER FOR YOU

by Izanah Jones

You don’t treat me like your woman
(Oh no you don’t)
You don’t treat me like you care
You don’t treat me like you love me
So where, where do we go from here?
Where do we go from here?

I’m on the other side of town
Waiting for you to come around
I’ve got better things to do
Than hang around for you
(why wait for you)

You use me then abuse me
Accuse me then refuse me
You take what you want
Are you ever gonna stop?
Are you ever gonna stop?

I can’t stand it
When I’m with you
But when we’re apart
I suffer a broken heart

Will this pain ever subside
Your way of loving me
I can’t abide

Will you learn to love me again?
The way you used to
When I was your woman

To the bitter end
To the bitter end
To the bitter end
To the bitter end

 

10. Where Can We Begin

by Izanah Jones

Standing by the edge of the road
Gazing at the starlit sky
Wondering, where are you tonight?

The cold wind blows through my hair
The four wheels pass on by
I’m hoping to catch a ride

The winds of change
Are blowing through my life
I feel so lost beneath this
endless desert sky

The winds of change
Are blowing through my life
I feel so lost beneath this
endless desert sky

The time is short
The road is long
I’ve got to get to you
Before you’re gone

I don’t know where I’m gonna sleep tonight
All I know is that I want you by my side
I long to see you in the morning light
And wake up knowing everything is right

Never ever will I part from you again
If you’ll have me back, where can we
begin?
Never ever will I leave you again
I want you back, where can we begin?

The time is short
The road is long
I’ve got to get to you
Before you’re gone
