I just lost a battle,
I think I have lost to the right person.
I was served wine instead of cake,
Well, wine will ease my worries.
Oh I just got stabbed in the back,
Its good cos I won’t get to see the wounds.
My car just developed a fault,
Beautiful! I won’t have to continue the journey
Maybe I should just pull the trigger.
Yeah, life sucks!
Harsh and hazy as the harmattan,
Cold and cozy as the wind from the northern pole,
All I see is me.
It’s so dark and lonely in here,
I don’t need your words cos I know you are lost for them,
I just need you to step in and feel what I feel.
Maybe, just maybe you are the light in the darkness.
