  • Lyrics
  • I've seen so many places and so many faces
    Left behind so many traces of my soul
    I carry all these voices with the ringing in my ears
    Some girl's tears and the rhythm of the road
    Sometimes my life takes more than I can give
    That's when I gotta go

    Where no one's around
    But the silence and the sound
    Of "Three Little Birds" for company
    I got a sip of something strong
    A secondhand "Old Man and the Sea"
    Out here with me
    Me and Marley
    Me and Marley

    God knows I love my life and I thank Him every night
    But sometimes I feel the knife of responsibility
    And the struggle and the strife, what's wrong and what's right
    Has got me searching for the light and my place of peace

    Where no one's around
    But the silence and the sound
    Of "Three Little Birds" for company
    I got a sip of something strong
    A secondhand "Old Man and the Sea"
    Out here with me
    Me and Marley

    We all live in chaos, noise and negativity
    But I still believe in one love bigger than you and me
    You and me
    You and me and Marley
    You and me and Marley

    I hear redemption's song
    A whisper on the sea
    Out here with me
    Out here with me
    Me and Marley
    Me and Marley
    Me and Marley
    Me and Marley

    I hear redemption's song
    Me and Marley
    Me and Marley
