Maxi Priest Human Work Of Art

No one on earth means more to me

Your painted pictures are the way that the world

Should be

Don’t ever change it, I don’t wanna live in this

World without you

Oh no

I can’t explain, I can’t define

What you do to me, but my senses are so alive

You tell your story and it’s all that I ever believe

Portraits and poetry are frozen forms of perfection

But they don’t live and breathe

When my heart’s in need they don’t answer me

You – ooo oooh you are, you’re a human work of art

Walking, talking inspiration

You – ooo oooh you are, you’re a human work of art

You make me love, you make me care

You give me freedom I don’t need when I know

You’re there

My search is over I’ve got all of the riches that

money don’t buy, Oh no

Your words are poetry and your face is more than

Perfection

The way I watch you move it only goes to prove

In everything to do

You oooh oooh you are, you’re a human work of art

Walking, talking inspiration

You ooooh ooh you are, you’re a human work of art

You’re my mission

You’re my goal

Oooh you liberate my soul

There’s no illusion, that your touch is gold

Portraits and poetry are frozen forms of perfection

The way I watch you move it only goes to prove

In everything you do

You oooh oooh you are, you’re a human work of art

Walking, talking new sensation

You ooooh oooh you are, you’re a human work of art

Walking, talking inspiration

Maxi Priest Cry For The Children

Slow down everyone pay attention

Let us reason for a while

I’m worried about this every day killing

That is turning into style

Don’t try to convince it’s normal

Playing with human lives

I don’t know about you

But I know it brings tears to my eyes

And I cry for the children

And I pray for them

That someday consciousness will once again

Be the answer to our prayers oh yeah

Now I’m tired of all the goings on around us everyday

How did the little bitty innocent babies become pray by the way

How could we allow ourselves to go so far

I’m almost certain we’ve forgotten who we are

I’m wide awake in a dream that never ends

And my heart cries out for help everyday

And I cry for the children

And I pray for them

That someday consciousness will once again

Be the answer to our prayers oh yeah

Oh yeah oh yeah I pray Lord I pray

How many more lives do you need for your games

Cause we’re counting

How many more mothers will you leave in pain

Cause it’s mounting

Could you give me a time or a day

How much longer we will have to wait

Will there be sunshine and no trace of crime when I wake

And I cry for the children

And I pray for them

That someday consciousness will once again

Be the answer to our prayers oh yeah

And I cry for the children

And I pray for them

That someday consciousness will once again

Be the answer to our prayers oh yeah

I pray said I pray I pray I pray

And now that I know

It wasn’t meant to be between you and me

Now I know it wasn’t meant to be

I’ve seen now the road I’ve been going down

Wasn’t meant to be, no, no

Twilight, sun going down

Reaching out for a piece of a memory

Final moments of our love we could share

But too many things undecided in between us

A life time and a day, oh yeah
