Chat With Me > Lyrics

For help with the meaning of some of the words I use please use:

The Patois Dictionary

SAVE YOUR SOUL

I WAS A DEAD MAN OUT IN THE COLD

LIFE WAS THE PITS AND I WAS DEEP IN A HOLE

JUST ABOUT TO GIVE UP THEN LO AND BEHOLD

A VOICE FROM WITHIN SAID “SAVE YOUR SOUL”



HIT IT!



YO BROTHERS AND SISTERS ALL AROUND THE GLOBE

I GOT A STORY YEAH ITS ‘S GOT TO BE TOLD

TO MY FAMILY FRIENDS FANS EVEN MY FOES

IT’S LIKE THIS YA THIS IS HOW IT GOES

I WAS OUT IN THE WORLD WITHOUT AN AIM OR A GOAL

OUT A SCHOOL AND OUT A CONTROL

SET IN MY WAYS YEAH STUCK IN A MOULD

AND GOING THE WRONG WAY DOWN A ONE WAY ROAD

YOUNG AND BOLD I DIDN’T WANNA BE TOLD

I USE TO STEAL AND BRAG ABOUT THE STUFF I STOLE

THEN ONE BRIGHT DAY MY MIND GOT BLOWN

WHEN A VOICE FROM WITHIN SAID “SAVE YOUR SOUL”



MY MIND GOT BLOWN!



I DIDN’T LISTEN NO I DIDN’T WANT TO BE TOLD

THINGS WERE LOOKING UP AND I WAS ON A ROLL

I WAS A RUDE BOY AND A ROMEO

AND ANYWHERE I WENT I STARED TO SHOW

I HAD MONEY WOMEN AND PLENTY OF GOLD

AND A OVER INFLATED E.G.O.

I WAS A DEAD MAN BUT I DIDN’T KNOW

UNTIL A VOICE FROM WITHIN SAID “SAVE YOUR SOUL”



YO! YOU SEE ME? ORIGINAL ROUGH NECK YOUTH

FROM UP SO ROUND SO DOWN SO IN SO OUT SO BOUT SO

YOU SEE ME? IS BETTER A BOY DON’T EVEN SEE ME

A ME A RUN THINGS THIS YEAR EXPENSIVE AND DEAR

GWARN CLEAR COME WID IT RUDE BWOY

THEN ME NAR TELL YOU MAAN



MY LIFE WAS LIKE A MOVIE AND I WAS PLAYING THE ROLE

OF A BLACK YOUTH LIVING IN THE GHETTO

WHERE THE ACTION WAS THAT’S WHERE I’D GO

RIGHT OR WRONG I’D BE GOING WITH THE FLOW

BUT WHAT YOU REAP IS WHAT YOU SOW

IT’S LIKE A KARMA THE BAD YOU DO WILL FOLLOW

YOU AROUND AND I WAS GOING DOWN

RIGHT DOWN WITH MY FACE IN THE GROUND

TWO HANDS BOUND TO A SIREN SOUND

NONE OF MY SO CALLED FRIENDS ANYWHERE TO BE FOUND

AND AS I THOUGHT TO MYSELF IN LIFE YOUR ALONE

A VOICE FROM WITHIN SAID “ANYONE HOME”

YES LORD! WELL HERE I BE

IF I AIN’T READY YET I GO NEVER BE

I’M SORRY FOR THE THINGS THAT I DID BEFORE

BELIEVE ME LORD I WON’T DO THEM NO MORE

I’LL BE AN ARROW LORD IF YOU’LL BE MY BOW

ANYWHERE I’M SENT I’D GLADLY GO

I’LL BE A WITNESS YEAH ALL AROUND THE WORLD

TO EVERY MAN EVERY WOMAN EVERY BOY AND GIRL



MY MIND GOT BLOWN



WELL I WAS BORN IN THE GHETTO WHERE THE STRONG SURVIVE

AND WITH A WILL TO STRIVE I BEGAN TO RISE

FROM SEVENTY NINE OR WAS IT SEVENTY FIVE

WHEN REGGAE MUSIC BEGAN TO OPEN MY EYES

ABOUT THE TRUTH THE RIGHTS AND JAH THE MOST HIGH

AND HOW TO ACHIEVE A LITTLE PIE IN THE SKY

INSPIRITED? YEAH I WAS TOTALLY ELEVATED

TO THE POINT WHERE I DECIDED TO CHAT THE MIKE

BUT MY DIRECTION WAS NOT TO ONLY THOSE OF MY COMPLEXION

BUT THE BROWN YELLOW RED AND WHITE

MAAN

CRITICS CRITICISE CYNICS CYNICISE

ANY ENTERTAINER WITH A MESSAGE THEY VICTIMISE

BUT IN THIS WORLD OF SIN IT’S NO SURPRISE

SO WITH THE MEDIA I SYMPATHISE

I HEAR THE RICH MANS LAUGHTER HEAR THE POOR MANS CRIES

SEE HYPOCRITES ADVERTISE THEIR LIES THROUGH THEIR EYES

EVERYONE'S BORN EVERYONE DIES

BUT ONLY GODS CHILDREN GET THE PRIZE

DON’T BE A FOOL BE COOL COME ON AND GET WISE

YEAH WISE UP! NO COMPROMISE

AND LISTEN TO THE VOICE THAT RESIDES WITHIN THE MIND

CAUSE GOD HAS SENT A GUIDE TO ALL MANKIND

THE CHOICE IS YOURS LIFE ABOVE OR DEATH BELOW

IT’S UP TO YO! TO SAVE YOUR SOUL
