Jem – EarthQuakes lyrics

Verse 1:

I will never dare to forget where I came.
The land of the beautiful souls; land of the brave.
The home of my grandmama; the woman that raised me
In the rugged of all streets. Those were the days.
The corner was riddled with death but I was blessed
And lucky to have a breath in me and I felt safe.
In the midst of the tragedy, I had family.
We had Jesus and that was great.
That's all that we need.
Everything was a mess but, we had shelter.
We had each and everybody in one place.
There was gunplay but we had fun days.
We had church so homie we had Sundays.
Life was short but homie we had long days.
People went off but homie we had on days.
What do we have here?
We had dead bodies. Trauma and Earthquakes.

Hook:

When the earth quakes
And the blood splatters.
The rubble cracks the body the skull shatters.
My brother looks for brothers.
A son looks for father.
A daughter looks for mothers.
A soul matters.
Haiti I'm right here.
As long as I'm right here.
You will be right here.
I will never leave you.
Ma Cheri I'm right here.
As long as I'm right here.
You will be right here.
And I will never leave.

Verse 2:

I will never dare to forget where I lived.
Impasse Kiskaya; my grandmother crib.
My mother was young but she wasn't alone
To do it all on her own tryna raise three kids.
Money was tight but family was everything.
Family was everything. Family was everything.
We had family.
We had God and even though we had stress.
We felt blessed.
We had faith.
We had sunshine.
We had wind breeze.
We had praise.
We had worship.
We still have faith but there's no more sunshine.
We got caves.
Meaning the darkness. Covered the dead and it
Appears that it spread tryna cover the saved.
Why does the world hate?
What do we have here?
We had dead bodies. Trauma and Earthquakes.

Hook: (2x)

When the earth quakes
And the blood splatters.
The rubble cracks the body the skull shatters.
My brother looks for brothers.
A son looks for father.
A daughter looks for mothers.
A soul matters.
Haiti I'm right here.
As long as I'm right here.
You will be right here.
I will never leave you.
Ma Cheri I'm right here.
As long as I'm right here.
You will be right here.
And I will never leave.

Outro: (2x)

When the earth quakes
I will never leave.
I will never.
I will never.
When the earth quakes
I will never leave.
When the earth quakes
I will never leave.
