Dear Theodosia

 

Dear Theodosia
What to say to you
I’d walk a mile
For your grin hits me anew

When you smile
My ego dies
My heart is trapped
In the wrinkles of your eyes

You have come of age
Before our nation
We’ll bleed and fight with you
We’ll make it right with you

When we lay
a strong enough foundation
We’ll pass it on with you,
Heal Uganda with you
And you’ll blow us all away
Some day
Some day

Yea, you’ll blow us all away
Some day
Some day.

Oh Philipa,
When you twirl,
I am a mess,
You, in that dress

To compliment your beauty
Is to fall down to my knees
And worship God above
Who calls you His

If I could name your smile
I’d name her “Hope”
She helps me cope

Did God on high
Confide His plan for earth
To only you
That confidence you birth
Is something new

My father was (ish) around
(My father was (ish) around)
I’ll try my best to be there for you
I’ll try whatever it takes
(I’ll make a million mistakes)
I’ll help you steward your grace for Truth

You have come of age
Before our nation
We’ll bleed and fight with you
We’ll make it right with you

When we lay
a strong enough foundation
We’ll pass it on with you,
Heal Uganda with you
And you’ll blow us all away,
Some day
Some day

Yea, you’ll blow us all away
Some day
Some day.
