Lyrics:

 

Verse I:

Pearl of my life, after God is who I adore,

We escaped war, and ran from poor,

Hooyo gave me life to live for,

She opened doors, and closed my pain,

Told me anything, I want obtain,

That the life we live is just a game,

And I got to learn how to be a champ,

Notice how say, yes Mom I can,

Remember those nights, when we laid awake

On the floor, with no bed, and no blanket,

Shivering from the cold, but you kept me warm,

Had me on your chest, and around your arms,

Oh momma, swear I felt so safe,

And I would embrace, and touch your face,

Wipe your tears off, cause youre going to be okay,

And we held each other, all night we prayed,

Woke up in the morning, another day of mourning,

We hear the gunshots, but we got to keep on moving,

Got to keep on moving!

 

Hook:

She was all Ive known, when I was sad,

She gave me hope and made me glad,

Hooyo was there, when they turned on me,

She made me smile, and made me happy,

 

Kind of woman that can safe the world,

Made me believe I can be stronger,

Taught me how to walk, and how to talk,

She gave me all I want, she gave me love,

 

Verse:

She speaks with knowledge, and knew me too well,

Momma picked me up, whenever I fell,

Hooyo bled and ached, so that she can feed,

Never spoke back, we scared to get beat,

She would sing me, huuwa huuwa (Lullaby)

And instantly, waan ku farxaa, (I get happy)

And I would smile, tell her please repeat,

And by the end of that, I would go to sleep,

Shes my friend, and everything I have,

I tell her my secrets, with her I share,

Oh I love her, swear I cant lie,

Cant convey, how much I care inside,

When Daddy died, I just couldnt cry,

Couldnt understand why he had to say goodbye,

I was a child, but now I know why,

But you Momma, you stood by our side,

Even though our life was very hard ride,

I write these rhymes, for you to realize,

Open your eyes, so someday,

Well be in paradise,

 

Hook: 2X

She was all Ive known, when I was sad,

She gave me hope and made me glad,

Hooyo was there, when they turned on me,

She made me smile, and made me happy,

 

Kind of woman that can safe the world,

Made me believe I can be stronger,

Taught me how to walk, and how to talk,

She gave me all I want, she gave me love

Hearts are worn in these dark ages

You're not alone in this story's pages

The light has fallen amongst the living and the dying

And I'll try to hold it in, yeah I'll try to hold it in

 

[Chorus]

The world's on fire and

It's more than I can handle

I'll tap into the water

(Try and bring my share)

I try to bring more

More than I can handle

(Bring it to the table)

Bring what I am able

 

I watch the heavens but I find no calling

Something I can do to change what's coming

Stay close to me while the sky is falling

Don't wanna be left alone, don't wanna be alone

 

[Chorus]

 

Hearts break, hearts mend

Love still hurts

Visions clash, planes crash

Still there's talk of

Saving souls, still the cold

Is closing in on us

 

We part the veil on our killer sun

Stray from the straight line on this short run

The more we take, the less we become

The fortune of one that means less for some

 

[Chorus X2]

Strengthen your mind

We’re living in serious times

We’re living in serious times

So who is serious at playing tricks?

Keep on firm meditation

Don’t stop in nothing foolish

Keep your heart clean and strong

Let your god self be established

 

And strengthen your mind...

 

 

Take this advice

A mother once gave to her son

Give not your strength to a deleterious woman

Know that the ways that can destroy a true king man

Because Dalilah was on the prowl and she’s a deadly one

 

So strengthen your mind...

´Cause it a youth the serpent gwaan brutalize

So strengthen enough yourself, your youth and you wife

Bring forth good fruit and the future of your life
