Time is ticking, my heart is thumping
I’m anxiously waiting for the greenlight, and you staring at me with beautiful eyes
Infectious smile lighting up the room with warmth.
I know the customers are watching but do I look like I care
You the only one I care about.
Maybe I should just say it, I’m in love with you Safina
Let’s fight for what we believe in, you and me like Sarafina
Once upon a time in South Africa, hers was for freedom
Let ours be for love. For love babe.
Got something from Ares son of Zeus and Hera, won’t be running away from this battle I promise
Wish you were Anat, but you are Athena the beautiful one with wisdom
You come from the south, I come from the north
On Sunday I pray to my God in church, you talk to yours on Friday in a mosque
See the contrast?
But we can still make it through religion, stubborn family members, bitter exes, nosy neighbors and backward cultures
We can still follow our own path, make our own destiny
We can still be us Safina
Start a beautiful family, saw the way you were looking at the baby clothes the other day in the market
You will be the best mother, I’m positive
Make a home anywhere; Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, India or even in Alaska
Safina is a Swahili name for “ark”. Like Noah’s Ark (Safina ya Noah).
