Eight (5)

1 so you say folks
at the market
they all ask about me
when they see you
getting by alone
2 then at the city
the tricycle drivers
they’re cheering where
I am, why
you’re all alone
3 seems in the village
folks they’re betting
do I return
to you
or not
4 my folks
they’ve been asking
if you’re coming to
take me back
5 I know it’s been crazy
it’s been hard but
you know
6 take me back, love
you know I don’t want to
walk alone
7 I always
hold your hand
walking down
that road
8 love
you know
I want you
take me back
