He sent me you
Day after day I asked myself why
There was a tear in my heart, don’t know why.
But then you came along the way,
Some things are meant to be, really.
‘Cause I have not been waiting for you, baby.
But like an idol you appeared in front of me
In that box called TV.
Poetry was in your eyes,
Didn’t have to look twice.
You were amazing when I saw you the first time, lad,
I felt like going mad.
Ever since that day I couldn’t get you out of my head,
You set my heart aglow and you didn’t know,
My heart was pounding every time I thought of you; you could have read,
You cast a spell; I can’t now let you go.
God sent me you, with challenges on our laps,
Think of almost a generation as a big gap,
Not to mention you revered a different deity,
And a language from far away,
We can’t even chat daily.
God sent me you to start a new chapter in my life,
You didn’t know, God sent me you.
Come closer to me, touch me,
Before I turn into a tree, save me,
And not the other way.
How will I tell you, boy?
God sent me you to give me joy, not my god, not my lover, not my boy toy.
Exactly forty years ago God sent me you,
And you didn’t know, or you were too young and innocent to know.
