Not for you...

If I shed tears
It is not for you, Adunni
If I made thorns my nest
And clay my bread
It is not for you
I ignored the pleasant sights of Venus
I resisted the pleasures of Jezebel
I refused to hide in the trojan horse
To conjugate in the naked night
Only If I never risked my father's rod
To love you afterall

How could you have danced with me in the rain
When your love was not to reign

If I sat at the doorway
Lost in thoughts all day
with no words to say
Sighing 'n' Grieving
How i end in deperdition
It is not for you, Adunni


My heart is stained n bittered
By the shores of Nile you flattered, You wooed n tamed me
The sands of Arabia felt our warmth
The bright skies of the Austria
Gazed on us
We were magic to the Hindu's
Trapped in your viscious smiles


Ah, I begged Time
To call back kikelomo
I Plead the spirit of love to
Send wind and rain
Send light and ravens
Let them deliver my heavens
Wishes untold
To Legends reborn

Kikelomo,

I was lost
But now I'm found.

The stormy sea, the fear and the lost
Of dear ones amidst troubles
We shall sail to the coast.
