VERSE
is the beginning of the artist’s ordeal, when her lover left her.

I wake up, I see you as you leave I feel it, I see it as you leave When we kiss I want deep But you're far away
I wake up, I see you as you leave
I feel it, I see it as you leave
When we kiss I want deep
But you're far away
 
 
I wake up, I see you as you leave I feel it, I see it as you leave When we kiss I want deep But you're far away
I wake up, I see you as you leave
I feel it, I see it as you leave
When we kiss I want deep
But you're far away
 
 

CHORUS
The artist says when she wakes up, she sees him, as he leaves,she feels him and when they kiss she want sit deep but he is far away. She concludes by saying when she is crying and tears are flowing or when she is crying and it's raining he should leave her alone.

Bim ba n ke bo mi ban san fi mi si le Bim ba n ke bo jo ba n ro fi mi si le
Bim ba n ke bo mi ban san fi mi si le
Bim ba n ke bo jo ba n ro fi mi si le
 
 
When I am crying and water is flowing, leave me alone When I am crying and it rains, leave me alone
When I am crying and water is flowing, leave me alone
When I am crying and it rains, leave me alone
 
 

VERSE
The artist recalls her past experience with her lover before everything went south. It seems the artist’s lover was deceiving her from the onset, rather than leaving her because of certain issues.

He used to be my every thing Treated me like I was a queen What spell did you cast on me? Or is it the make believe You say girl never be afraid Of ever, ever loving me Those words I hung on too Oh God, I was a fool You became my bad habit keeping up appearances You became my bad habit keeping up appearances So you could notice Even when you suddenly picked your things and left the keys That's crazy
He used to be my every thing
Treated me like I was a queen
What spell did you cast on me?
Or is it the make believe
You say girl never be afraid
Of ever, ever loving me
Those words I hung on too
Oh God, I was a fool
You became my bad habit keeping up appearances
You became my bad habit keeping up appearances
So you could notice
Even when you suddenly picked your things and left the keys
That's crazy
 
 
He used to be my every thing Treated me like I was a queen What spell did you cast on me?

He used to be my every thing
Treated me like I was a queen
What spell did you cast on me?
Or is it the make believe
You say girl never be afraid
Of ever, ever loving me
Those words I hung on too
Oh God, I was a fool
You became my bad habit keeping up appearances
You became my bad habit keeping up appearances
So you could notice
Even when you suddenly picked your things and left the keys
That's crazy
 
 

CHORUS
The artist says when she is crying and tears are flowing,when she is crying and it's raining, when she is crying and it fills a bowl he should leave her alone.

Bim ba n ke bo mi ban san fi mi si le Bim ba n ke bo jo ba n ro fi mi si le Bi ba n ke o ko kun basia fi mi sile Bim ba n ke o, ko kun ba si a, ko kun ba si a
Bim ba n ke bo mi ban san fi mi si le
Bim ba n ke bo jo ba n ro fi mi si le
Bi ba n ke o ko kun basia fi mi sile
Bim ba n ke o, ko kun ba si a, ko kun ba si a
 
 
When I am crying and water is flowing, leave me alone When I am crying and rain id falling, leave me alone When I am crying and water is flowing, leave me alone When I am crying and my tears fill up a big bowl,
When I am crying and water is flowing, leave me alone
When I am crying and rain id falling, leave me alone
When I am crying and water is flowing, leave me alone
When I am crying and my tears fill up a big bowl,
 
 

BRIDGE
Finally, the artist leaves her fate to God.

Mo ti foro mi fo lu wa ko sho, ko sho Mo ti foro mi fo lu wa ko sho, ko sho
Mo ti foro mi fo lu wa ko sho, ko sho
Mo ti foro mi fo lu wa ko sho, ko sho
 
 
I have left my fate to God I have left my fate to God
I have left my fate to God
I have left my fate to God
 
 

HOOK
She finalizes by saying she has surrendered the matter to God to guide them and heis the only one ( her guy). She further says when she's crying, dying, or could cry a river or waterfall he should leave her alone.

Iwo, Iwo nikan shosho Iwo, Iwo nikan shosho Iwo, Iwo nikan shosho Iwo, Iwo nikan shosho Iwo, Iwo nikan shosho Iwo, Iwo nikan shosho Iwo nikan shosho Iwo nikan shosho Iwo nikan shosho Oh, when I'm crying, when I'm dying Just leave me alone I can cry a river or a waterfall Just leave me alone, leave me alone Moti f'oro mi f'oluwa o Iwo, Iwo nikan shosho Iwo, Iwo nikan shosho Iwo, Iwo nikan shosho Iwo, Iwo nikan shosho…
