    Picture the morning taste and devour
    We rise early pace up the hour
    Streets is bustling hustling their heart out
    You can't have the sweet with no sour

    Spices herbs the sweet scent of flower
    We came out precisely the hour
    Clouds disappear the sun shows the power
    No chance of a probable shower

    I fell in love with my neighbors daughter
    I wanted to protect and support her
    Never mind I'm just 12 and a quarter
    I had dreams beyond our border.

    Is it true when they say all you need is just love,
    Is it true
    What about those who have loved
    Only to find that it's taken away
    And why do they say that the children have rights to be free
    To be free
    What about those who I've known
    Whose memory still lives inside of me.

    Fatima,
    What did the Young Man say
    Before he stole you away
    On that fateful day Fatima
    Fatima,
    Did he know your name
    Or the plans we made,
    To go to New York City, Fatima

    And after school we studied the lessons
    I ask God to slow down the seconds
    He does the opposite that's what I'm guessing
    I better chill and count my own blessings

    Fatima, Fatima what is the matter
    How come you ain't come up the ladder
    So we can be like there's no tomorrow
    Damn you gonna make me wait until tomorrow

    She spoke Arabic and Swahili
    She'd say Upendo (Swahili for love) Anta Habibi (Arabic for, you are my love/dearest friend)
    You so bright, you shine like my TV
    Then one day she never came to meet me

    Is it true when they say all you need is just love,
    Is it true
    What about those who have loved
    Only to find that it's taken away
    And why do they say that the children have rights to be free
    To be free
    What about those who I've known
    Whose memory still lives inside of me.

    Fatima,
    What did the Young Man say
    Before he stole you away
    On that fateful day Fatima
    Fatima,
    Did he know your name
    Or the plans we made,
    To go to New York City, Fatima
    (Repeat)

    If beauty was in the eyes of beholder
    how come everyone hushed when she walked by
    How come girls would look just to scold her
    How come the angel wanted to hold her?

    Fatima, Fatima I'm in America
    I make rhymes and I make them delicate
    You would have liked the parks in Connecticut
    You would have said I'm working too hard again.

    Damn you shooter, Damn you the building
    Whose walls hid the blood she was spilling
    Damn you Country so good at killing
    Damn you feeling, for persevering

    Is it true when they say all you need is just love,
    Is it true
    What about those who have loved
    Only to find that it's taken away
    And why do they say that the children have rights to be free
    To be free
    What about those who I've known
    Whose memory still lives inside of me.


    Fatima,
    What did the Gun Man Say
    before he took you away on that fateful day
    Fatima
    Did he know your name, or the plans we made
    To go to New York City
    (Repeat)

    Fatima..

    (Spoken)
    Now I just want to make it clear, I don't want you to shed a tear.
    Because this here, is a celebration, We're not mourning, We're celebrating
    Yeah
    So baby don't cry, Please don't let the tears fall
    So don't cry..
