Текст песни K'Naan - Fatima

[Verse 1:] Picture the morning taste and devour, We rise early pace up the hour, Streets is bustlin', hustlin' 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 twelve and a quarter, I had dreams beyond our border. [Chorus:] Is it true when they say all you need is just love? What about those who I have loved Only to find that it's taken away? And why do they say that the children have rights 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? [Verse 2:] And after school we studied the lessons, I ask God to slow down the seconds, He does the opposite, that's what I'm guessin', 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 anta habibi." You so bright, you shine like my TV, Then one day she never came to meet me. [Chorus:] Is it true when they say all you need is just love? What about those who I have loved Only to find that it's taken away? And why do they say that the children have rights 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? [Verse 3:] 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 'em delicate, You would have liked the parks in Connecticut, You would have said I'm workin' too hard again. Damn you, shooter! Damn you the, building, Whose walls hid the blood she was spillin'! Damn you, country so good at killin'! Damn you, feeling, for perseverin'! [Chorus:] Is it true when they say all you need is just love? What about those who I have loved Only to find that it's taken away? And why do they say that the children have rights 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? [Outro:] Now I just want to make it clear, I don't want you to shed a tear ‘Cause this here is a celebration, We're not mourning, we're celebrating. Yeah! So, baby, don't cry, Please, don't let the tears fall, So don't cry...
