Calling 4 A Positive Vibe - refused 2007

written by : R. Stevens/M. Elliott


Say we're talking to the people
Talking to the people then now
Maxi Priest Richie Stevens in town

Let's not dwell on the past
Let's fight for today
Why wait until tomorrow
We tried that yesterday
We're calling for a positive vibe
And a firm meditation
The seeds we need to sow
Take the youths off the streets
Give them proper education
That's the way to go
Mothers and fathers
Brothers and sisters

Say we're all in this thing together
Say we all got to care for one another
Can't live in the hype
Got to remember where we coming from
Cos here in this jungle
It's crying everyday
Love's the only answer
To bring it all back together
So there ain't no reason
For this bloodshed every day yeah oooh yeah

I remember those days
From my fathers generation
And how they used to roll
Peace and love on the corner, no bullets, no guns
No one acting cold
So where did all the love go
Tell me I wanna know

chorus

Tell me how many times
How many lives
How many people gotta go
Tell me
How many days
How many weeks
How many months
I wanna know
Tell me
How much time
How many years
Can't you see it's out of control

Let's stop them now
Let's stop them now

Can't live in the hype
Got to remember where we coming from
Cause here in this jungle
It's crying every day
Love is the only answer
To bring it all back together
So there ain't no reason
For this bloodshed every day hey hey hey

Tell me how many times
How many lives
How many people gotta go
Tell me
How many days
How many weeks
How many months
I wanna know
Tell me
How much time
How many years
Can't you see it's out of control

How many times
How many lives
How many people gotta go
Tell me
How many days
How many weeks
How many months
I wanna know
Tell me
How much time
How many years
Can't you see it's out of control
