IFE WHY? By Agbekorede VicLyd

Written by Editor
When I met you
It was like mission accomplished
But now it’s like I’m failing
Now all I do is cry in the rain
So people wouldn’t know
But you, you didn’t notice my pain
I thought you should know
Ife why?
Usually when we kiss
There’s this sensation I feel
Your smile draws me near
But it isn’t so again
Ife why?
Ife but why?
You shouldn’t have taken me in at all
Instead of now kicking me out
Well, I’m not gonna break down and cry
I’ll only lay down and cry.
I’m gonna cry to my satisfaction
I hope I cry out all the memories of us.
I remember, when I smile
You’d know what it really means
But now you don’t even care
We even haven’t talk for a while
Ife why?
Even when I’m not, I agree that I am wrong
But baby, it’s not too late at all
I never want to let go
It’ll be easy to get over this, than having you in my memories
I’m looking forward to you bearing my babies.
