There are times I envy you.

You rest so peacefully.

You don’t wear a smile anymore

But that’s only because

Your joy is now complete

 

There are days I wish I were you

Well, were where you are

The text paints a picture of peace, and

Experience sneaks me in for a glimpse

I ache from the disconnect

 

Tumwe, mwana, simanyi

Ebya wano bikooya

Obukoowu buntuuse mu magumba

Obunafu gwe musaayi gwange

Nalabye omuzira mummy e’jjo

Nze n’agogera nga sigalina

Naye yanyanirizza nnyo

Yanfumise n’essanyu. Mugumu.

Kyoka nga nze, empewo nga yendagirira

Tumwe, mwana, sikyamanyi

 

Omugezi wange, Nev, binsobedde

Kale manyi nti amaanyi si gange

Naye neetamye, nze nga nze

Ela wano wendi, mpulira nzigwedemu

Wakyiri singa mbade mwesiga

Okusinga ko wano wendi

Mwana omuntu atalabika-labika

Muzibu wa kukilirizaamu

Omugezi wange, Nev, binsobedde

 

Eyatonda byona n’agamba nti

Ekisa kyange kikumala,

Era obusobozi bw’amaanyi gange

Osinga bulaba mu bunafu bwo

 

Tolimbye, nanyini nsi,

Nze nsaba busabi butandeka,

‘Kuba, guno omulimu gwewampadde

Sigusobola nga toliiwo awo nange

 

Ntaasa, nanyini bulamu

Ntaasa, mukama wa byona

Ntaasa, nze ekisooto obusooto

Kyewawa omukka, n’omwana wo

Kyewanunula mu bulamu namaddala

Ntaasa, gwe mubuumbi wange

Eyasoka wo, ali ne kaakano, era alibeera wo

Lubeerera na Lubeerera,

Taata.

Nyweza.
