"Footprints" as written by Nigel Andrew Staff, Nigel Andrew Staff, Donovan N Bennett,...
One set of footprints inna di sand and yuh a grumble and
A screw a seh it shoulda be two remember one thing mi youth a Father God have the plan so when
You see one set of footprints a God carry you

Hurry up and come back was the last thing she said to her son
The day his life was taken she did not know he wouldn't come back he died from the bullet
Of a gun and now her little boy is gone

She said help me, Lord help me and she looked up to the sky and she heard a voice reply

When you cry I cry
I cry along with you
When you smile I smile
I smile along with you

When you cry I cry
I cry along with you
When you smile I smile
I smile along with you

Another baby left homeless
Abandoned when he was two so the street side kids
At the shopping mall was the family he knew it's not easy being homeless sometimes you have to do
What you have to do and he didn't have a mom or dad to help him get through

He said help me, Father help me
And then he looked up to the sky and he heard a voice reply

When you cry I cry
I cry along with you
When you smile I smile
I smile along with you

It was early Sunday morning mi get up a watch the news
Then mi hear seh last night a seaview dem kill a youth den mamma tell mi seh her church sister
Jacqueline just lose her brother over seaview gardens
When she tell mi jah jah know ti mash mi up naah tell nuh lie but yuh know seh man a thuggist so yuh
Naah go see me cry everyday and every night she still a ask the father
Why her brother had to die she heard a voice reply

When you cry I cry
I cry along with you
When you smile I smile
I smile along with you

    General Commenti think it is dont take life or family for granted cuz it could easily be taken away from you (verse 1)

    or

    life could be so much worse(verse 2)

    Also to never give up hope if u lose someone cuz they will be watching over you and god is looking out for you, they died for a reason and it will be ok

    if everyone stops the violence these things wont happen
