BETWEEN YOU AND ME

„Between you and me“ war ein interessantes Experiment. Das Album wurde von einem der Großen des Reggae, Eddy Grant produziert („Electric Avenue“, „Gimme hope Joanna“ & „I don’t wanna dance“ sind nur einige seiner weltberühmten Hits). Er hat sich nicht nehmen lassen auch bei den Backing Vocals mitzusingen. Eddy wohnt in Barbados nur zehn Minuten vom Haus meiner Eltern entfernt. Es war also nur eine Frage der Zeit, bis wir uns treffen würden. Unschwer zu erraten das „Between you and me“ stärker als jedes andere Album, ein starkes karibisches Feeling aufweist. – Judy

LYRICS

WATERSHED

Take me to the water

It’s a long and lonely pilgrimage
To the land of the living
The land of the endless love
Everyday I take another step
To the land of the living
The land of the endless love
I keep searching myheart
I keep searching my soul

The heat is fierce on the beaten track
To the land of the living
The land of the endless love
Hot sun beaten down on my back on the way
To the land of the living
The land of the endless love
There’s a thirst in my heart
There’s a thirst in my soul
I’ve been looking for gold
But I still can’t find my rainbow

Take me to the watershed
Will I die will I live
I decide deep inside
I will I shall be free
Take me to the watershed
Will I die will I live
I decide how to live my life
I will I shall be free

I don’t need to take the old things of mine
To the land of the living
The land of the endless love
The more I lose you know the more I find myself
In the land of the living
The land of the endless love
There’s a hope in my heart
There’s a hope in my soul
See me heading for home
As I go I come into my own

I’m beginning to stay with truth
I’m beginning to sit alone
I’m beginning to feel my pain
And I’m beginning to let it go
I’m beglnnlng to love myself
And I’m beginning to want to grow
I’m beginning to hate my sin
And I’m beginning to tell it no no no no no no no…

DON‘T JUST KEEP TALKING ’BOUT (THE WAY IT IS)

Talk is cheap in times like this
Children die mothers cry
You and I talking about the way it is
All around see the signs
To my shame I just play the caring game
Talking about the way it is

Gonna need some courage to practise what I preach
Gonna need some love to carry it over
If I didn’t have words would I be what I say I believe
Don’t just keep talking about it
Don’t just keep talking about the way it is
Don’t just keep talking about it
Don’t just keep talking about the way it is

I’m saying more and doing less
I criticise analyse I’m paralysed
Talking about the way it is
And the feelings gone now
Funny how my heart is much harder now
Talking about the way it is

There’re a thousand reasons why we do it
Each one might steal a fate

You and I we’ve gotta do some thing
You and I we’ve gotta do some thing
You and I we’ve gotta do some thing
You and I we’ve gotta do some thing
Everybody’s gotta do something
Something ‚bout the way it is

DO IT AGAIN

Lately I’ve been living
Did a check on my heart and I can feel it beating now

Never had the attention
Never thought anyone would give up all their time
Never thought I could hold the interest of someone like You
Never thought anyone could satisfy or please me like You do

Do it again do it again

Not many people look deeper
Or have the desire the patience the tools to dig down anyway
Not many get to see the real me and still want to know
Not many would tolerate my swings or mind my moods

I’ve had imitations
I’ve had a few good tries
Had a few good intentions but few came true
Few came through
Only You only You only You only You

I love the way You love me
Please don’t stop now
I love the way You love me now

I could get used to this
To just having You near me
To having Your arms wrapped around me
Just being there
Feel Your breath on my cheek
Your gaze on my face

And all the while You make me smile
With the words that You whisper in my ear
It’s plain to tell You know me well
You say the things that I love to hear
Calm into my turbulence and bringing hope to my despair
Comfort to my restlessnes and reassurance to my fear

Do it again do it again

Feels nice oh feels nice
It’s gotta be love love
It feels nice oh feels nice

I love the way You’re
I love the way You’re
I love the way You’re mine
I love the way You’re
I love the way You’re mine
How You hold me how You touch me
How You reach me thrill me meet me
Heal me fill me deep down inside

Do it do it do it again

DOWN TO LOVE

I’ve got to say
I know You’re the reason why I’m here today
If it weren’t for You I would be miles away
My being here is down to love

I had to find a haven for my turbulence
And peace of mind
I called out to You and You were right on time
Your being there was down to love

Love lifted my head up
So I could see a better way
Now this is all that I can say
What you see wasn’t just up to me
It’s down to love

Love was like a mystery
I just couldn’t understand how truth could set you free
I question still but now the point is I can see
Oh and my vision is down to love

MORE LOVE

More life more love more peace when I give it up

We will not be free until we fix our minds on the Almighty
We will never see unless we look to the Lord
We won’t find ourselves
Until we lose our drive for earthly ambition
We will never live until we die to this world

More life more love more peace when I give it up

We will never learn
Until we run to the Father like little children
Change will never come until we’re rooted in Him
We won’t win this race
Until we stumble realising our weakness
We can’t lift our heads up
Until we humble our hearts and give Him all the praises

More life more love more peace when I give it up

Give it up give it up give it up give it up
I get the meaning when i give it up

More life more love more peace when I give it up

God gave me life I will give him back
All to Him in total surrender
God gave me love and I will love him back
All to Him in total surrender

More life more love more peace when I give it up

SUNNY DAY

Sunny day

I look up and I see Your face
And my searching is at an end
And it feels like heaven

Sunny day
When I need You and You are there
And Your spirit is everywhere
And it feels like heaven

Well I don’t have to will up the sun
Cause you dry all my rain
And I don’t have to will up the moon
Cause You shine into my night
There’s no need to will up the stars
To lead me on cause I know
I’m going where You’re going

Sunny day
When I know love has come to stay
And it won’t ever go away
And it feels like heaven

You make me smile
And I want the world to know and oh I
I can’t deny it’s a summer time feeling alright
You changed my life
You are the joy of living
And living’s what I’m doing since You have come my way

Sunny day
All my dreams came alive today
It’s like God answered all my prayers
And it feels like heaven

I know it is You light of my life
You make it a sunny sunny sunny sunny day

You Lord are my living my meaning my reason for being
You are all my love
You Lord are my reason for being
And I would give it all up for You

BETWEEN YOU AND ME

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah now

From where I stand today I see
Just how slow we are to learn
Things are not how they should be
Between you and me

I look at you you look at me
And they are differences indeed
But we must open up our minds
To see the similarities

Heal divisions between you and me
Span the distance between you and me
Building bridges between you and me
Share the vision between you and me

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah now

I thought my innocence was why
I longed for peace and so I’d start
To scorn simplicity and I
Opened my mind and closed my heart

What is the colour of my hurt
A shade for pain is hard to find
Who knows the status of my soul
Measures the merit of my mind

As life and death conflict and need
Feature in all reality
More than a common ground I see
One race that is humanity

And though the future’s overcast
Still I am hoping anyhow
We’ve got to look beyond the past
It is the time for healing now

WHEEL OF CHANGE

Times and seasons
Fashions change
And when I sing rhyme and reason
Go round and round and round and round here

Kids on carousels
And all the whims of culture spin
Vicious circles
Go round and round and round and round here

And the wind of change is blowing
Around and round and round and round
And there’s a spirit in the breeze
Around around here
To set the wheel of change a-rolling
Around and round and round and round here

Trials of living
Go round and round and round and round
Without a job it’s hard to make the ends to meet
Around around here
A single mother came to see me
Around around here

And she said old clothes and other hand me downs
Go round and round and round and round
Can’t get the bare necessities
Around around here
Overcast is the outlook for the underclass
Around around around around here

Politicians push their papers
Around and round and round and round
The institutes of power play
Around around here
They make mistakes we pay the penalty
Around around around around here

And our morals now are sleeping
Around and round and round and round
It just depends on how you feel
Around around here
Spreading the virus of our pleasure
Around around around around here

And to start the tables turning

And the wind of change is blowing
Around and round and round and round
And I can feel it in the breeze
Set the wheel of change in motion
Let’s have the final revolution now

Set the wheel of change and let it roll away
Set the wheel of change and let it be
Set the wheel of change and let it roll away
Set the wheel of change – set it free

SONGS OF FREEDOM

0 yeah yeah wo yay oh
Songs of freedom
Songs that save my soul

Ancient echoes of my past bring light and life to me
The same old song that my mother sang
Was a song that set me free
Deep in the night she would rock her child singing over me
The very same song her mother sang the prayers of centuries

The cry was freedom all the way
Feel it in the music hear it in the words I sing

And when the pain of yesterday plagues my memory
My song is a light to chase the lies the past is telling me
I lift my head up to the sky and suddenly I see
I know the truth I know myself and I know my destiny
The cry is freedom all the way
Feel it in the music hear it in the words I sing

I know their worth I know their worth

Lyrics & Music: Judy Bailey

ONE WAY

I know I say I love You
But all the things I do
Well they don’t say the same sometimes
I have been demanding
Taken You for granted
But all that must end cause
Now is the time to make it right

One way one way to be this time
That’s true to my heart
Cause one day time will be hard to find
So I’ll cherish our love today

Who knows what could happen
This life is but a moment
So please forgive my foolish side
Now every chance I have to
Show I truly love You
I will take to the limit
So you can see for me there is only

I have wasted time, now I am determined
To make the most of what we have

Today today today I’m gonna cherish the one I love
