You're running and you're running and you're running away
You're running and you're running and you're running away

You're running and you're running
But you can't run away from yourself
Can't run away from yourself
Can't run away from yourself
Can't run away from yourself
Can't run away from yourself
Can't run away from yourself

You must have done something wrong
Said you must have done something wrong
Why you can't find the place where you belong
Running away
Running away
Running away

Every man thinketh his burden is the heaviest
Every man thinketh his burden is the heaviest
But who feels it knows it, Lord
Who feels it knows it, Lord
Who feels it knows it, Lord
Who feels it knows it, Lord

You're running and you're running and you're running away
You're running and you're running and you're running away
You're running and you're running and you're running away

You're running and you're running
But you can't run away from yourself
Could you run away from yourself?
Can you run away from yourself?
Can't run away from yourself
Can't run away from yourself

You must have done something
Something, something, something,
Something, you don't want nobody to know about
You must have ... Lord
Something wrong you must have done
You must have done something wrong
Why you can't find where you belong

Well, well, well, well, you're running away
Running away, no, no, no, I'm not running away
No, don't say that, don't say that, 'cause I'm not running away

I've got to protect my life
And I don't want to live with no strife
It is better to live on the house top
Than to live in a house full of confusion
So, I made my decision and I left you
And now you coming to tell me
That I'm running away
But it's not true
I'm not running away

I see I'm not the only one who thought so too!!! And I thought of the guy from the Vlassic pickle commercials of yore...

I really like Bob but there is a reason that this was his weakest album.... Overproduced maybe? There is just no 'soul' in his voice.
I agree. I was listening and thought "where's bob?" definitely a lack of soul.

I never thought that. But now I will... forever... Thanks a lot.

I was just going to make the same observation - I had to check who it was, thinking it might be Sandler singing. Technically, it's probably Adam Sandler that sounds like Bob Marley, though, right?
Yoda was a guest vocalist on a Bob Marley tune?

Agreed. Nice to hear something different from Mr. Marley :dance: :clap:
:cowboy:
So nice to hear something besides "No Woman, No Cry" (a good song, but overplayed) from Mr. Marley. His music is wonderful. Explore more of his works, please!
Doesn't work for me, and I'm a huge Marley fan. I find Kaya to be his weakest album by far. (Granted, it came out only a short while after the masterpiece that was Exodus.) This track goes nowhere. No catchy melody or riddim. Ho-hum.
Good to hear some Bob Marley that's not on the "Legend" compo. :cheesygrin:
:cool:

Absolutely. I thought it was a joke at first.
An easy 10: Godlike. Bob Marley was a prophet.
Nice version
