lyrics

You say I look like summer
while it’s raining outside
Everyone wears black
while I wear yellow, red and white
Another tricky situation
I’m just trying to get through
so I put on my long, yellow skirt
and I don’t feel quite so blue:
it’s summer
summer inside

I told you in September
I would call you all the time
But now it is December
and we’ve only spoken twice
It’s not that I don’t want to,
every single day I do
and when I put on my skirt,
well, I’m right back there with you
and it’s summer
summer inside

Takwaba uwaba nga Yesu
Takwaba uwaba nga Yesu
Takwaba uwaba nga Yesu
Takwaba takwa kabe

Na yenda enda konse konse
Na fwaya fwaya konse konse
Na shinguluka konse konse
Takwaba takwa kabe

Five years have unfolded
unsealed letters in a drawer
I wish you knew who I am
cause I don’t anymore

(Bembe translation:

There’s no-one, there’s no-one like Jesus
There’s no-one, there’s no-one like him.

I walk here and there…
I search here and there…
I turn around here and there…
There’s no-one, there’s no-one like him)
