LABELS - MY SECRET PAIN

DO YOU LOVE GREY?

MY SECRET PAIN

When you took me to the river bank to bathe
Then you brought out the local sponge and black soap
Omo wo kii ku loju owo, omo ese kii ku loju ese
Abiamo ku oro omo, iya to bi mi, ku oro mi

Now I lay dying in pain and groaning
Still I know I can't bear the pain of you knowing
Iya mi ni wura iyebiye, o fi oja pon mi fun odun meta
Bi o ba se iwo ni, mi o ba ti ku ni kekere

Its been so long I called you but my many failings drew us apart
You trained me so well, how come this distance is so wide?
 Ilara omo eniyan po, won fi ipinya si emi re
Sugbon ife yii ti eje ni, ko se pa, ko se so nu

Now I see the clouds, I hope the angels await me
I hope I'm forgiven for been so stubborn and vengeful
Mo ni fe re, Maami, ejo wo, e da ri ji mi...
Mo fe ran yin lopolopo, ejo wo, e gbadura fun mi


You are my secret joy, my secret pain and everlasting woe
Society called you a witch because all your children died but me
Ni sin si yii, mo ti wa ni opon iku, mo si ri pe asan lori asan,
Ofo lo ri ofo; aye ti n ba gbe, aye yi ku ru jo jo
