Very, very, beautiful it is.

Everything about this song is beautiful; the rhythm, sound, notes, and… them deep, touching, heartfelt, ‘goosebumps-producing’ lyrics.

It starts with the Man; having been castigated by society, friends, family and most painfully, his future mother in law, deciding to… “Speak deeply with his Legs” — to search for greener pastures way, way across the sea… leaving behind his lovely soul mate of so long.

Briefly though, or so he hopes.

He tells her: “I want to take care of you baby, so let me go, I won’t be long… my Love

He says to her: “ be wary of them boys, when I go, they will come… do not discard our history

Again: “Mi o ni pe de”- I won’t be long

He would obviously, rather not leave his Queen behind, but he has to; He is a Man, albeit, not the King he desires to be…yet.

He would go, hustle hard, and then come befittingly for his Queen, he, her King.

…………………………………………. ………………………………………….

She responds…

She says to him: “you know that I’ll be waiting for you love

She draws from their love; the passionate, singular, strong, uniting presence they share…

The one that allows each of them know within their hearts that… each was made for the other. That which makes them just know… that, they will always be together… as one.

Indeed, it is precisely because of this beautiful fact that she responded to his beseech with that statement rather than just saying ‘I will wait for you’

She then emphasises with words, how much her “heart is breaking” cuz he’s gotta go…

She must have, as the norm with Women, been in tears.

Drawing strength from her love, she accepts he has to go…

So, she tells him also: “Be wary of them girls… do not forget where we’ve been coming from…

Again: “tete wale — don’t keep me waiting too long though

………………………………………… …………………………………………

As if all that isn’t beautiful enough… They, in one accord, commit this imminent phase of their lives to God.

He says: “Send me forth with Prayers my Love

She prays: “Go in Health and Peace, You will come back to me in health, and peace, and… Plenty wealth

To all the lovers, soul mates, and lovebirds out there… be like #AdekunleGold and #Simi.
