A Better Place

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

A Better Place
