  • Dread shine your light
    So a child may follow
    Many have been lost along the way
    Until tonight
    Turns into tomorrow
    Teach them to be careful while at play

    There's nothing wrong with having fun
    Don't let the system tame you
    It's just a part of being young
    And even though they're quick to blame you
    Picking on you like a plum
    Because your dream became true
    Now look what they've become
    An open sight in plain view
    They've already had a run
    So meanwhile they try to change you
    It's not over til it's done
    So please remain the same you

    Hey young world (hey young world)
    Hey young world (hey young world)
    Hey young world
    The world is yours

    Hey young world (hey young world)
    Hey young world (hey young world)
    Hey young world
    The world is yours

    Dread shine your light
    So a child may follow
    Many have been lost along the way
    Until tonight
    Turns into tomorrow
    Teach them to be careful while at play

    You might not think you know enough
    Don't let that deter you
    It's all apart of growing up
    And we're all young enough to learn to
    And don't you live life in a rush
    The past cannot be returned to
    And when you feel like giving up
    Remember patience is a virtue
    When you fall, try to get up
    Have some guts, I'm trying to urge you
    Be proud of owning up
    The truth will never hurt you

    Hey young world (hey young world)
    Hey young world (hey young world)
    Hey young world
    The world is yours

    Hey young world (hey young world)
    Hey young world (hey young world)
    Hey young world
    The world is yours

    Dread shine your light
    So a child may follow
    Cause' many have been lost along the way
    Until tonight
    Turns into tomorrow
    Teach them to be careful while at play
    So when you're rising start, be wise and smart
    Try and make your mark
    Don't you hype and floss, and drive too fast
    Cause' life's to short
    Try to make good times last 'cause time flies past
    And if time is money, that means I'm cast
    But it don't cost money to joke and laugh
    So if you love somebody, hurry up and talk

    Hey young world (hey young world)
    Hey young world (hey young world)
    Hey young world
    The world is yours Writer/s: Damian Marley, DAMIAN ROBERT MARLEY, DAMIAN ROBERT NESTA MARLEY, DEVON ANTHONY DOUGLAS, Devon Douglas, Ricky M. L. Walters, RICKY M.L. WATERS, Trevor James, TREVOR WASHINGTON JAMES, Victan Edmund, VICTAN PAUL EDMUND
