lyrics

TARIQ:
You had this power in your hands
What? You didn’t think I’d understand?
You’re no fighter, no, you’re not like me
But I’ve never kept anything unseen

I always confide in you
My brother my friend
You’ve made it clear to me
You don’t do the same

CHENZIRA:
I didn’t mean to let you down
I didn’t want it to get around
My own mother doesn’t know
I was scared to...

TARIQ:
Why didn’t you let me know?
I feel cheated, I feel betrayed
Why’d you think that I’d give it away?
How could you live in secrecy?
You really hurt me Chenzi!

CHENZIRA:
Sorry that I never told
Thought I couldn’t trust a soul
I saw my future! I was on my own
I have this power, but no control!

For such a long time I’ve felt so alone

TARIQ:
Because you kept this all to your own!

CHENZIRA:
I couldn’t trust you to keep this quiet

TARIQ:
How could you keep this inside?

CHENZIRA & TARIQ:
Now what from here?
Made your (my) own prison
What can I say? / Why won’t you listen?

TARIQ:
Why do you run?

CHENZIRA:
You made me the chosen one!
