So It’s Like that ha?

Another one of my old relics rediscoverd after 10 years. Don’t know where the inspiration for this came from, sounds so unlike me. Definitely not a good way for a relationship to end but many relationships end up this way. What a shame

Oh oh oh oh (background hum)

I wait up until midnight

I go to bed and try to sleep

You come home at 3am

I pretend I am asleep

I know you are seeing someone else

But Oh! That’s nothing new

Oh oh oh oh (background hum)

I dare to ask where you were last night

You get this serious look on your face

And you say ‘I think we have to talk’

You’ve been thinking lately

About you and me

You wish things could be different

Like when we first got together

You say you are doing your best

But I nag and you get no peace

And to be honest with me

You think I need to loose some weight

If things do not change pretty soon

You will be needing some space from me


So its like that ha!

Well I’m no pushover

If you want a change

Go ahead, be my guest

‘Cos what you see is what you get

This devil you know

Is better than the angel you don’t

Even alone, I can survive

So you dont like what you see

Remember, you got me here

You stay out all night

You say you were with friends

You cant hold down a job

I cook, clean and pay the bills

Even a siant wont put up with that

So if you think you need your space

Just go ahead, I ‘ve paid my dues

Repeat Chorus

So its like that ha!

Well I’m no push over

If you want a change

Go ahead, be my guest

‘Cos what you see is what you get

This devil you know

Is better than the angel you don’t.


Tenderness; Take My Hand – Poem by Selasie Bulmuo

I have been told

That it’s allowed

To walk this apian way

Hand in hand with someone

‘Just anyone’, I asked?

‘No someone special’, they said

The choice is yours

To yourself be true

So I look to see

Who I should seek

Beauty, Brains,

Confidence or Success

Which one best suits me?

I did see others

Hand in hand

They walked on by

Two by two

Then I thought

I will please my eyes

I chose beauty

But it was just too vain

I looked again

Wealth seemed pretty good

I tried it too

But it wearied me so

I looked around

Everyone I saw

All paired up

They seemed to have it too

That elusive thing, happiness

So I tried their style

Party, party, loud and brash

No, no, no !

It’s not For me

Beauty, Brains,

Fame and Fortune

Partying, Fun

Hip Hop and Rock

Some Combinations

Are really not my scene

‘Cos satisfaction’s not guaranteed

My hand, my heart,

Pure treasure they are

I need to pair with a deserving one

The world it seems

Is a harsh place indeed

So come on Tenderness

You take my hand.

I know for sure

You will treat me right.

That’s what you are !
