Abdel Wright – Troubled Waters lyrics

Hunger is frequent, can't find food fi eat
Can't pay the rent, some end up on the street
Them tax we daily, system indiscreet
Responsibilities, ends can hardly meet, hardly meet

We all know that certain things take time
But not forever
Comfort yourself by singing these lines of mine

Although the mountain is high
I know that one day I will get by
And although the bridges are low
I'll take my chances
To touch the troubled waters

Poverty done deya, It's a global thing
Crime and violence mek we head start spin, oh, what a thing
You see the homeless youths them, trust me, what a thing
Exposed to abuses, chances very slim, very slim

We all know that certain things take time
But not forever
Comfort yourself by singing these lines of mine

Although the mountain is high
I know that one day I will get by
And although the bridges are low
I'll take my chances
To touch the troubled waters

Take, take, chance, chance
Take, take, chance, chance

Some ghetto youths see no choice but fi tek up the gun
Some leave school with diploma
Yet work them can't get none, oh, what a thing
You think prison and death row system is such a fun, think again
Suicide to me my view is fire burn, fire burn

Although the mountain is high
I know that one day I will get by
And although the bridges are low
I'll take my chances
To touch the troubled waters

Although the mountain is high
I know that one day we will get by
And although the bridges are low
I'll take my chances
To touch the troubled waters

You'll can take a chances
To touch the troubled waters
I'll take my chances
To touch the troubled waters

Hunger is frequent, them tax we daily
Can't pay the rent, poverty done deya
[Incomprehensible]
Responsibilities

No choice
