It's you and I coming as one
Driven through the wild
Cuz we were meant for each other,
Made together,one for the other
You and I

We moved away,far away
To a place of cold still waters
And the beauty of it all was my strength

Got engaged and eternity went by
When reality stormed open
You presented me a loin-sack cloth
Packed and fiddled with blood crying stains

You and I drove out to the world
In search of bread to make 'Femi and Ope' cry no more
Built for them a strong and bright future

As time grew and seasons past
I kept you strong with my strength
And we aged swiftly together
Watching our offspring grow

Moments of pleasantries
Moments of tears
Moments of us too weak to hold on
None of this I ever regretted
Cuz you were  by my side

Slowly we grew frail and weak
And the crown of our ages reflect
We sat under the shade 
And talked deep into our past
With our children's children
You and I.
