Sitting Here In Limbo: Got Some Time To Search My Soul- Jimmy Cliff

Jimmy-Cliff 2Jimmy Cliff, crossing many rivers to UN Peace Ambassador

Reggae music is inspirational. It is a music that carries Jah’s prophetical message, the truth and the light. It’s a music that gives comfort and satisfaction to sufferers, the down trodden victims and gives hope to the common people denied justice and abused in the society.

I love reggae music, because it gives me inspiration to write without ceasing. Just as I love the music, the same way I love the artists and the players of the instruments behind the music. Jimmy Cliff is one of my favourite reggae artists. I love almost all his songs but not more than this great song called ‘Sitting Here In Limbo.’

Sitting here in limbo

But I know it won’t be long

Sitting here in limbo

Like a bird without a song

Well, they’re putting up a resistance

But I know that my faith will lead me on

 

Sitting here in limbo

Waiting for the dice to roll

Yeah, now, sitting here in limbo

Got some time to search my soul

Well, they’re putting up a resistance

But I know that my faith will lead me on

 

I don’t know where life will leave me

But I know where I have been

I can’t say what life will show me

But I know what I have seen

Tried my hand at love and friendship

But all that is past and gone

This little boy is movin’ on

 

Sitting here in limbo

Waiting for the tide to flow

Sitting here in limbo

Knowing that I have to go

Well, they’re putting up a resistance

But I know that my faith will lead me on

 

I don’t know where life will take me

But I know where I have been

I don’t know what life will show me

But I know what I have seen

Tried my hand at love and friendship

That is past and gone

And now it’s time to move along

 

Gonna lead me on now

Meanwhile, they’re putting up resistance

But I know that my faith will lead me on

Sitting in limbo, limbo, limbo

Sitting in limbo, limbo, limbo

Sitting in limbo, limbo, limbo

Meanwhile, they’re putting up a resistance

But I know that my faith will lead me on
