Which way from here
I'm caught up in the pages of my mind
And it's not so clear
But it seems the hurt is way too much this time
Cause I see a vaine look in your eyes
Tell me, do you see the same, same look in mine
Sandpapper kisses, papercut bliss
Don't know what this is, but it all leads to this
You're gonna leave, her
You have deceived, her
Ooh just a girl

Now here I go again
She said I'll break her heart again


She plays the fool again
She said I'll break the rules again
Though I disagree
She thinks she knows me more than me
It's so hard to see
What this voice keeps telling me

Ooh just a girl with featherweight curls
To expose all she knows you play like tease
Just a Girl with featherweight curls
To expose all she knows you play like tease
You're gonna leave, her
You have decieved, her
Ooh just a girl

A crossover attempt failing all genres.

Reggae is just to monotonous and predictable. Just went and found the Martina Topley-Bird original. Very nice indeed. Thanks RP for introducing yet another great artist, albeit from the comments.
 

I agree, only the great musicians can make something better with an old recipe.
It's quite easy to say that it's the son of Bob Marley , almost the same voice and a lot of the same feeling.

So good. An original, subtle blend and flow of genres.

I would like to have been in the room while they recorded this.  Mellow.

I tried to submit the song sampled in this song (Sandpaper Kisses), but it got insta-denied.  Too bad. :(
Stephen has that distinctive rasp....He did a great record with Spearhead...
I left indeed

 PSDed Fleetwood Mac, oh Well

Is Stephen Marley into downers or painkillers? There is absolutely no pep or sunniness to his stuff as far as I've heard.

Is it Reggae or Ganja?  I don't know -- by the end of it, I'm so stoned I can't tell any more.
Wonderful blend of voices.  Great song.

beautifully carried down the generations Stephen.
Stoners, prepare to unwind.
STILL HATING THIS and I don't care who knows it.
Great song, though I wish we could listen to the original from time to time - 'Sandpaper Kisses' is simply amazing!

Yuck, sounds like a drum machine, synthesizer, and two people singing. Way too mechanical sounding for me. Just because he sounds like Bob doesn't make it any better. WAY over-produced.

This is a great album, and the first time I've ever heard this song played on anything other than my own cd player... I saw Stephen live in Vegas- he's the closest living embodiment of his father than anyone in his family.  He began the concert with the opening lines of Babylon by Bus: "Greetings Rastafari..."  the crowd went beserk.  Thanks RP.
 
Well, I play this cd quite often and was also surprised to hear it here. I agree Stephen M has some serious talent and I'd love to see him at a gig. 

Another thanks RP from me too!

Try listening on some other night....grab a little relaxation and stop worrying. Music doesn't always affect us the same way every time we hear it. Maybe you were just too tense (two tents). Or maybe buy some better speakers?

This is as good as two pigs smoking reefer...nice in my book
Cool groove😌
could have been a kruder & dorfmeister song- i like it.
I've never heard this....quite enjoyable
ohh weh  !  diese Platte  ist ja noch super, das war 2007!    . . aber leider reicht es nicht aus , der Sohn von Bob Marley zu sein.
Bin richtig enttäuscht von dem Auftritt ( afrika-festival ). Behäbig und sonst nix !  Kein Funke.
Nun dann werden halt die alten charismatischen Platten rausgekramt, von BOB  !
Also R P bitte öfter B. Marley laufen lassen. DANKE!!
super  ! stephen   marley    kommt zum Int. Afrika-Festival  nach Würzburg,  bin schon sehr gespannt
This is such a cool album!!!!!!
Yaaaawn!
a different song would be nice.
Very nice, floated off to that.

Well followed by the doos.

Lovely

If you are going to change my words then perhaps you should take a few trips to Jamaica and see for yourself!
I have been to many bluegrass fests and while I love and enjoy it very much, it mostly sounds the same.   While much of reggae is samish there is  a ton of really great, creative stuff out there.  Jamaicans LIVE for music.  They will always be on the cutting edge of reggae and taking it to new heights.


He has a very special way of saying "UH".

Never heard this before - love it!!
I go both ways on that one. Today, I was really feeling it. Previous listens, eh, not so much. Best if listened to through headphones. Some cool effects!  It's worth some further listens before I make up my mind.
Oh shit RP .. Not That ''BOOM BOOM'' stuff .. I come here to get away from that .. its unmusical, annoying. non sensical garbage, plz hit the Delete button from your library Bill.

Oh dear just seen my previous comment but it still stands.. G.A.R.B.A.G.E. sucko barfoo . His Dad will turn in his grave God Bless Him.

To much computer music for my taste!
Stephen Marley music goooood... :)

Love the dreamy effects of the harp, the sustained synth notes....and resonance on the vocals. Very hypnotic. And DAMN he sounds like his dad. Even more than Ziggy.
What the hell is this ''Current/Modern'' Soul Reggae ? ... new one on me ... a resounding 1 {#Puke}



Chilling....
Stop all of the criticism and just chill....he is not his Father...he is an artist.
Neat groove.

I agree with you and BusinessGypsy - cashing in on daddy's name is just in poor taste. Although, I have to admit that Ziggy's "Tomorrow People" always coaxed a smile out of me...

It seems a bit rich calling it a Steve Marley track, as it just Martina Topley-Bird's - Sandpaper Kisses with a drum machine over the top and a handful of lines by Mr Marley.  More like a reggae remix.
 
I would like to concur with this assessment.

GREAT - and better than his Dad!
Was I really listening to Steven Marley? Sounded too smooth....???
Definitely a a discovery for me due to RP {#Mrgreen}

There! That's better!

Blade Runner is one of if not the best sci/fi film of all time specifically because Rutger Howers Roy character. Every one of his lines is epic from "i want more life f'r" to "nothing the god of biomechanics wouldn't let you into heaven for" and on and on...the rest of the cast is great also harrison ford, edward james olmos, sean young, darryl hannah and on and on...oh ya....i really like the Stephen Marley song.....A LOT!!!

Great. Now I'm depressed. And Southern Culture on the Skids really didn't help much.

Love this song, in all it's drum machine, voice-processed, over-production. It just sounds good and Stephan's voice has echoes of his father's but with a hint of anguish... just sounds good

Minority report: The opening grunt pretty much sets the stage for the digestive distress that follows.This is just so much ancestor worship. The huge volume of well crafted chill and dub music that rises above this example makes it ordinary within that style at best. As far as reggae as a genre having a greater variety of diversity than any other except rock and pop, you must be smoking better than I am. Just doesn't prove out by example. Your results may vary. Curmudgeon out, resume worshipful activity.

This is just outstanding.  Jamaican trip hop.

I'm certain I was subconsciously replaying an old Miami Vice episode in my head while listening to this.

Martina was a former singer for Tricky. @bill: Put this one in your Playlist! My favourite MTB-Song.

I really like this song, but it is in danger of a backlash if continued to be played too much. There are very few songs that can withstand that type of punishment.{#Yes}

If you plug this guy into Pandora all you get for similar artists is every other Marley who crawled out of the woodwork to record a song. To me that doesn't even touch this cool song.

On first hearing I thought this was okay, but it is not wearing well after the hundredth or so. Please give this a nice long rest.
My first thoughts exactly!

Doesn't happen. Or I should say it very rarely happens. Bill makes a serious effort to see that it doesn't as he has said repeatedly. And almost every time I've ever looked at a song's play history after someone commented on hearing it every day, it has turned out that the song plays an average of once a week (and many of those at a time of day when the complainant was unlikely to be listening). I frankly don't have the time to go looking right now for how often this song has been played. However, as a daily listener on RP who really likes this song, I can gaurantee it hasn't been playing every day during the times when I listen.
