"Hey Baby" as written by Dante Smith and Stephen Marley....
I've been gone awhile away from you
And I hope you overstand
That I've got to do what I must do
To be a better man
Cuz if I was to just to act a fool
Do nothing with myself
Then all my blessings would be cursed
My world would crumble in
It's a joy when I sit down and
Think of the good times that we have
And what we do to make it through
When the good turns to the bad
Well I hope you'll find it in your heart
And know these words are true
And please don't fuss
Because I must go do what I must do

Hey baby don't you worry
Even though the road is rocky
I'll be coming home to you again
Cuz if you thought that I was lost
I had to bare my cross
Now I'm free from all these Chains

A time, a space, a different place
How perfect we might be
I would be the wind that blows
You'd be that willow tree
And I could never bare the thought of you not by my side
So I would be the warmth of day
You'd be the cool of night
And everyday I pray to Jah that one day you will see
And overstand the fact I must fulfill my destiny

I hope you'll find it in your heart and know these words are true
And please don't cry
Cuz you know that I must do what I must do


Well and it's not easy
Jah knows how I try, I try
So don't you get weary
Jah knows how I try, I try

God knows
Life is one big road
With alot of signs and turns & twists and curves
Even though the road is rocky
My main thing's to rock and keep on rockin'
From city to city
Backyard to yard
And we be seein' the sights, standin' under the lights
And the spot is hot, it's cold and lonely at night
And I'm feenin' and I'm dreamin' and I'm holding you tight
But hold on, every single road I roll on
Comes to an end and I'm back home again
So baby please don't cry, there's no valley low and there's no mountain high
And our love don't die with the passage of time
It just grows more,
And just keep strong
And even though I'm gone, I am never too far
You're the light through the dark, shining right through my heart
So my journey must start

    General Commenthe's tellin his baby girl to hold tight, that he can't be what she needs him to be right now. he's gotta take that journey to find a better living for the two, but he keeps her in mind when he says he'll be coming back. it's a story of love and sacrifice.

    it's undeniable it has a good beat, but the song is much more than just another stoner song.

    General CommentThis song war originally based on a lullaby that Bob Marley sang to his kids. Stephen has added a bit to it.

    It's easiest interpretation is a song he would sing to his girl while he goes on tour. Especially his new remix (city to city back yard to yard) really pushes this.

    This song speaks to me because I'm joing the marines. Just read the lyrics and you'll see how easily it translates over.

    General Commenti think ilookjapanese hit this right on, its about how a guy cant be with the girl that he loves because he is trying to better his life for the two of them, and he's basically telling her to wait for him. Which in a way is messed up, but he is doing it for all the right reasons.. its a great song... is voice is amazing and the beat is sweet

    all the marleys are very talented

    General CommentYah of course it's about a guy who is telling his girl to hold on and wait for him. He has to do what he has to do first to become a better man and fulfill his destiny even though it's hard on their relationship. I LOVE this song because I've been in a long distance relationship for so long. He's in med school and I'm applying to grad school in a few months and we don't even live on the same continents. Nobody would understand us. But we love each other so much. And if we focus on ourselves right now we will be stronger when we are together. That's how I feel. And that's how I think he felt when he wrote this song. He had to do what he had to do before he could be with his girl.
