Ijahman - Miss Beverley (1989 version)

Long time Miss Beverley, I've been thinking over
Long time I back was against the corner
But love's got the power, while happiness is for lovers
I was so delighted with everything that you did

Our relationship, how I did cherish
I did wish upon a star, I did get far

It's not who you love, but it's who love you
I cried out loud, only Jah Jah know
How I felt the blow
And now I'm all brand new, this a Rasta ah
Vow salvation, Miss Beverley

Long time Miss Beverley girl, you have me thinking over
Long time my back was against the corner
Living in vanity, Was the life that I never could see
And it's really the space in I, was spiritually

We both start living in hell, ding dong goes the bell
We both start rock the boat, over in Jah hands I fell

It's not who you love, but it's who love you
I cry out loud, only Jah Jah know
How I felt the blow
And now I'm all brand new, this a Rasta ow
Vow salvation, Miss Beverley
Rasta vow sweet, sweet to me
Jah Jah is my saviour

(..)

Long time Miss Beverley girl, you make I really fly over
Long time my back really was against the corner, God
Because I was excited, all because of my doctrine
I had to pay the price for wisdom and sacrifice
I must still do my best at my Father's request
In this last days that we live in my friend
Was steady is my hand

It's not who you love, but it's who love you
I cry out loud, only Jah Jah know
How I felt the blow

It's not who you love, but it's who love you
It's not who you love, but it's who love you
Miss Beverley, it's not who you love
