Damian Marley – So A Child May Follow (Stony Hill Album)


[Chorus]
So when you’re rising start, be wise and smart
Turns into tomorrow
They’ve already had a run
An open sight in plain view
So please remain the same you
Remember patience is a virtue
Have some guts, I’m trying to urge you
Until tonight
Teach them to be careful while at play
So meanwhile they try to change you
Dread shine your light
It’s just a part of being young
Now look what they’ve become
Dread shine your light
[Verse 3]
Until tonight
Hey young world (hey young world)
There’s nothing wrong with having fun
Try and make your mark
Picking on you like a plum
And we’re all young enough to learn to
Until tonight

But it don’t cost money to joke and laugh
Because your dream became true
So a child may follow
Teach them to be careful while at play
It’s all apart of growing up
[Chorus]
So a child may follow
Hey young world (hey young world)
Be proud of owning up
[Chorus]
The past cannot be returned to
And don’t you live life in a rush
The world is yours
Hey young world (hey young world)

Hey young world (hey young world)
Try to make good times last cause’ time flies past
The world is yours
Dread shine your light
Hey young world (hey young world)

[Verse 2]
Don’t let that deter you
Hey young world (hey young world)
So a child may follow
Turns into tomorrow
Many have been lost along the way
Hey young world (hey young world)
Hey young world (hey young world)
The truth will never hurt you
Don’t you hype and floss, and drive to fast
Don’t let the system tame you
The world is yours
It’s not over til it’s done
You might not think you know enough

Cause’ life’s to short
[Verse 1]
Turns into tomorrow

So if you love somebody hurry up and talk
Many have been lost along the way
When you fall try to get up
And when you feel like giving up

And if time is money, that means I’m cast
Teach them to be careful while at play
Cause’ many have been lost along the way
Hey young world (hey young world)
And even though they’re quick to blame you
