Lyrics

Lion On A Leash

Written by: Kae Sun (lyrics published in One Ghana, One Voice.)

They wait till we dead before they honor us
I guess they tried to put some fear in us
Can’t keep a king in a cell, can’t hold a lion on a leash;

Brave, brave hearted people, speak on all they see thats evil
speak when some not treated equal, oh yeah , yeah
and wise grow wiser, strong grow stronger, declare righteousness over yonder;
Don’t let them mould your mind, cause they can’t hold a lion on a leash

Sleep walkers walk on,
Day dreamers , day dream on.
You put the fuel to the fire; know that these times they may require
Those who seek to serve mankind in every way, loving everyday
Hear what the father says, don’t take the mark of the beast, don’t
take the mark of the beast, don’t

And some will knock you down and try to trample you
Guess they try hardest just to conquer you.
They try to take a sage for a fool, they try to steal the dreams of our youth now.
They try to steal the dreams of our youth. Yes they try, I guess try, I guess they try now.

And even when we fall, we rise and carry on
Through the highs and the lows
Where ‘eve the wind may blow
Where ‘eve the wind may blow
Lord.

Too Young, Too Soon

Seed of struggle and warfare
bloodshot eyes and untold despair;
Hands that never learned to reach for another’s, they bearing arms,
barely holding on;

They say keep running, keep jumping, keep ducking, keep dodging
victims of child’s play they never lay in no coffin;
Live on, grow up, be bolder be stronger but these brothers of mine, they just
had too much to lose.

Too young, too soon
Too much to lose
They say the world is watching.

These weapons wont heal us no they got no feelings
They wont fix this village and they surely wont raise our babies;
And I find it funny some say, money is all we need but empty handed we were born
and with nothing we’ll soon be leaving;

We can’t keep, reaching for love from a distance
Can’t keep putting up walls of resistance and masking our hearts
we got too much to lose,

Too young, too soon
Too much to lose, they say the world is watching.

Weh-weh

The tin way you sow wey you go reap;
Some wake up, some dem still dey sleep;
Some go on like dem no dey care,
starting trouble over here.


Time and time and again yeah
Time and time and a weh-weh


Landrover rolling over blowing petrol you blow my mind,
travel dust roads north to city, to and fro dem dey rob wanna mines!


Time and time and again yeah
Time and time and a weh- weh


We are wide awake
We are wide awake
We are wide awake and nobody leaves empty handed, Africa!


Make you tell the people
Wey dem dey ron de country
if dem no dey guard dem go bost dem plenty
everyday bost bost bost
everyday so so so bostin but


We are wide awake
We are wide awake
We are wide awake and nobody leaves empty handed, Africa!


Time and time and again yeah
Time and time and a weh-weh
TIme and time again yeah
