15 Minutes Away - K'naan

Yeah I am sending this one out to everybody

That's had to wait on a money transfer

 

Yeah it's kinda whack when they charge you like

Ten percent on the dollar

 

But you know how go it feels when they say

 

You can pick it up today it's 15 minutes away

You can pick it up today it's 15 minutes away

 

You can pick it up today it's 15 minutes away

You can pick it up today it's 15 minutes away

 

The worst thing is the waiting man

It's spiritually draining

 

I guess I could repaint

But don't think I'm complaining

I'm in my small apartment

This month has been the hardest

I couldn't afford some omelettes

I'm broken like an empty promise

Sometimes when I'm in a meeting

And everyone else is eating

I feel so awkward asking

So I pretend like I am fasting

My girl had paid my payments

She wants to save my anus

She says my love contagious

But my pride is so outrageous

She sent me western union

So I can make it throughing

It felt so bad when she said write down this 11 digits

I go out to receive it

I'm desperate and I need it

Feels like an angel speaking

I can hardly believe it

You can pick it up today it's 15 minutes away

You can pick it up today it's 15 minutes away

You can pick it up today it's 15 minutes away

 

You can pick it up today it's 15 minutes away

You finally got a calla

You met him in sao paula

A tourist with a dolla

He's some kind of a balla

Two babies in a scrolla

And still he wants to holla

He likes your pepsi cola

But you ain't running low-la

Brazilians make it easy

For bellas or fo sheezy

The sun would make him dizzy

Working for something mezlee

These girls will make you trust them

Because sweetness in the custom

But everyday they hustling

Every day they hustling

 

John calls her with the number

Home with her local lover

 

Who was it that picked up the phone

Oh that was just my brother

She goes out to receive it

She's desperate and she needs it

It's like an angel speaking

She can hardly believe it

You can pick it up today it's 15 minutes away

You can pick it up today it's 15 minutes away

 

You can pick it up today it's 15 minutes away

 

You can pick it up today it's 15 minutes away

 

I got my conformation

 

The western union agent said grandma's destination

 

Had violent inclination

 

But now I'm proudly pacing

And walking to the station

Heavy perspiration

 

But you can't tell me nothing

I got my biz in order

I made it cross the border

Such dazzle such a horror

 

His life is like an opera

Grandma I never forget you

Worry I'll never let you

Soon as I leave the venue

This money I will send you

I still haven't gone astray

Don't drink or smoke and sway

Though sometimes I don't pray

 

It feels so good to say

Go out and receive it

Cause I just know you need it

Your boy has grow up decent

Grandma can you believe it

You can pick it up today it's 15 minutes away

You can pick it up today it's 15 minutes away

 

You can pick it up today it's 15 minutes away

 

You can pick it up today it's 15 minutes away

 

You let the beat ride out for a minute

I'm a say some very quick to people

 

I don't really do shout outs but I just wanna give a quick shout out

 

To the people that helped me out when I was in need

 

You know what I'm saying

People who sent me things on western union what have you

 

You know mahama yuisef taking care of us

Numerous times when me and rezac stuck on the road somewhere

 

Thank you very much

 

Mr jarvis church

 

Who didn't even know about western union till he met me

 

Thank you very much

 

My wife Dedna helping us out when we needed her

 

Thank you baby

 

Mr Solgai helping out with my brothers

Bail money even before we been working together

 

Thank you very much

 

Orregato I appreciate it

 

And now I'm sending money to people

 

Generosity is the key generosity is the key

 

Yeah thank you very much it's Kinaan
