Coming In From The Cold

In 1980 Bob Marley released his album entitled "UPRISING." Many people may recall the turmoil that was present in Jamaica from the mid 70's to the early 80's. Jamaica's two political factions, The Jamaica Labor Party(JLP) and the Peoples National Party (PNP) were at odds with each other. Their was constant fighting in the street and many people died during this time.

In the face of this hopelessness Bob Marley wrote one track from that Album "Coming in From the Cold," to help the people who were suffering during that time. He wanted something to give them hope. He wanted people to know that the most important man that they saw was once a baby, was once a child and in the end all men are created equal. This was a song that was used by the Jamaican Tourist Board and by Air Jamaica to welcome back Jamaicans to the island. This was one of the last tracks that Bob completed prior to his death. I have copied the lyrics here because I believe for many people going through a lot of things in their life that Bob was speaking to them...to us...to me.

Coming in from the Cold




In this life, In this life, in this life
In this oh sweet life
We're coming in from the cold
We're coming in, coming in, coming in
Coming in from the cold

It's you, it's you, it's you I'm talking to
Well you, it's you, it's you
It's you I'm talking to now
Why do you look so sad and foresaken
When one door is closed
Don't you know another is open

Would you let the system
Make you kill your brotherman
No dread no
Would you make the system
Make you kill your brotherman
No dread no
Would you make the system
Get on top of your head again
No dread no
Well the biggest man you ever
Did see was just a baby

In this life, in this life
In this oh sweet life
We're coming in from the cold
We're coming in, coming in, coming in
We're coming in from the cold
It's life, it's life, it's life
Coming in from the cold
We're coming in, coming in, coming in
Coming in from the cold

It's you, it's you, it's you I'm talking to
Well you, it's you, it's you
It's you I'm talking to now
Why do you look so sad and foresaken
Don't you know
When one door is closed
Don't you know many more is open

Would you let the system
No dread no
Would you let the system
Get on top of your head
No dread no
Would you let the system
Make you kill your brotherman
No dread no
The biggest man you ever
Did see was once a baby

In this life, in this life, in this life
In this oh sweet life
We're coming in from the cold
We're coming in, coming in, coming in
Coming in from the cold
We're coming in, coming in, coming in

A likeable beloved maturity is the prize of a well-spent youth. Instead of its bringing sad and dolour prospects of decay, it would give in to defeat us hopes of eternal lad in a less ill world.
