A BETTER PLACE



A Better Place



(Pato Banton ASCAP
&
D.Wyman /
Stay Positive Publishing ASCAP)



 



This song
is dedicated to Granny, Dad, Mother Junior & Jamelia



And all
those who have passed on before us



Rest in
peace until we meet again



 



When you
lose somebody, when you lose someone



When you
lose somebody you love



Remember
they gone to a better place



A better
place a better better place



They gone
to a better place



A better
place a better better place



 



This
world is like a bridge we’ve gotta cross over



And life
is like a never ending journey



Death is
like a layover or a stopover



But it’s
never really over



 Good people never die they just close their
eyes



Go to
sleep and then arise - imagine their surprise



When they
realize that they have survived



That’s
why I say there’s no need to cry



 



Chorus



 



Life, the
journey to another day



Not here
to stay ‘cause sometimes it gets taken away



Skies get
grey and gun fire fly through LA



Mama call
unto the lord and fall onto her knees to pray



It
happens everyday from LA to the Bay



From
back-a-yard JA to Handsworth UK



What can
I say



Mama wipe
the tear from your face



He’s in a
better place a much better place



Never
erase the memory and keep it alive



Because a
family is all we really need to survive



It aint
no lie, look me right straight in the eye



I tell we
don’t die we graduate to the sky



And then
we fly



Reaching
out and touching people’s dreams



Like a
guardian angel protecting you from evil things



Remember
we don’t come from here we come from up in space



So when
we pass we going to a better place



 



Chorus



 



 



Well from
you first breath........... at the moment of birth



Your name
is written in the books of the Universe



On planet
earth lord the only guarantee



Is that
we all have to leave eventually



Some will
pass, some will just fuse



Many will
survive, some will choose to refuse



But I
know there’s a place for each and everyone



Cause in
my Father’s house there are so many mansions



 



It’s
a better place
.........
One step closer to perfection



In the
Mansion Halls of Resurrection



It’s
a better place
.........
Can you imagine the occasion



What a
beautiful family reunion



It’s
a better place
......... And we don’t lose our memory



So I’ll
remember you and you’ll remember me



It’s
a better place
.........
Oh what a happy day it will be



When we
meet on the other side



 



Chorus



 



Oh what a
happy day it will be



Oh what a
happy day it will be



Oh what a
happy day it will be



Oh what a
happy day it will be



When we
meet on the other side
