Love is on my mind.
It's for everyone no matter where you're from,

I never give up no good vibes. And I never give up no truth. Never trade my sanity for livin in Babylon crew. Vanity will never drive this man insane. This man will walk alongside Jah again.

And never ever knowing about my inside..
But one that I hold is worth so
much more to me if it's both body and mind.
