Fatima - K'naan

Picture the morning taste and devour

We rise early pace up the hour

Streets is bustling hustling their heart out

You can't have the sweet with no sour

Spices herbs the sweet scent of flower

She came out precisely the hour

Clouds disappear the sun shows the power

No chance of a probable shower

 

I fell in love with my neighbors daughter

I wanted to protect and support her

Never mind I'm just 12 and a quarter

I had dreams beyond our border

Is it true when they say all you need is just love

 

Is it true

 

What about those who have loved

 

Only to find that it's taken away

 

And why do they say that the children have rights to be free

 

To be free

What about those who I've known

 

Whose memory still lives inside of me

Fatima

 

What did the young man say

 

Before he stole you away

 

On that fateful day Fatima

 

Fatima

 

Did he know your name

 

Or the plans we made

 

To go to New York city Fatima

 

And after school we studied the lessons

I ask god to slow down the seconds

He does the opposite that's what I'm guessing

I better chill and count my own blessings

Fatima Fatima what is the matter

How come you ain't come up the ladder

So we can be like there's no tomorrow

Damn you gonna make me wait until tomorrow

She spoke Arabic and swahili

She'd say Upendo until Swahili

You so bright you shine like my TV

Then one day she never came to meet me

Is it true when they say all you need is just love

 

Is it true

 

What about those who have loved

 

Only to find that it's taken away

And why do they say that the children have rights to be free

 

To be free

 

What about those who I've known

 

Whose memory still lives inside of me

Fatima

 

What did the young man say

 

Before he stole you away

 

On that fateful day Fatima

 

Fatima

 

Did he know your name

 

Or the plans we made

 

To go to New York city Fatima

 

Fatima

 

What did the young man say

 

Before he stole you away

On that fateful day Fatima

 

Fatima

 

Did he know your name

 

Or the plans we made

 

To go to New York city Fatima

 

If beauty was in the eyes of beholder

How come everyone hushed when she walked by

How come girls would look just to scold her

How come the angel wanted to hold her

Fatima Fatima I'm in America

I make rhymes and I make them delicate

You would have liked the parks in connecticut

You would have said I'm working too hard again

Damn you shooter damn you the building

Whose walls hid the blood she was spilling

Damn you country so good at killing

Damn you feeling for persevering

 

Is it true when they say all you need is just love

 

Is it true

 

What about those who have loved

 

Only to find that it's taken away

And why do they say that the children have rights to be free

 

To be free

 

What about those who I've known

 

Whose memory still lives inside of me

Fatima

 

What did the gun man say

 

Before he took you away on that fateful day

Fatima

 

Fatima

 

Did he know your name or the plans we made

 

To go to New York city

Fatima

 

Fatima

 

What did the gun man say

 

Before he took you away on that fateful day

Fatima

 

Fatima

 

Did he know your name or the plans we made

 

To go to New York city

Fatima

 

Fatima

 

Now I just want to make it clear I don't want you to

Shed a tear

 

Because this here is a celebration we're not mourning we're celebrating

 

Fatima

Yeah

 

So baby don't cry please don't let the tears fall

 

So don't cry
