Weeping Willow
Anthony B Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

My lover is gone,
my girlfriend is gone...
she's gone, she's gone, she's gone

So I said,
weeping willow
take these tears from my pillow
I said:
weeping willow,
help me mend this sorrow...

My girl run off with everything,
my heart, my mind and my wedding ring.

I never (sight it only thing?)
I've got the joy,
wise happiness I bring
Watches school I hope I feel I hear ya'.....

Heart of this strong is so vibrant hearya'
Make it in selassie I give I faith
and Oh! So why dont I say ma praya'
Seek no hope I through the fire
life shakaman beeing true to wire
if i dont get my heart desire
but from this I can't retire.

so I cry:
weeping willow
take my tears from my pillow
I said:
weeping willow
help me mend this sorrow

They said:
love is a two way street
but I guess I lost mine at the highway
they dont make it to my heart beat.
So commited no more will I stay
I thought you would be by my side
till I live on the end of my days

No matter what lovers may say
things don't always go your way..

So I said:
weeping willow
take my tears from my pillow
I said:
weeping willow
help me mend this sorrow

The road of life, is rough
and full of obstacles.
I never take my love for a joke
not again, never treat her like a popsticle.
No one needs to love up a lie to a multiple night, looking the damnicles...
But what can a man do what needs to provide the damacles
so you live without a sign,
checkin someone else in your mind
You going far, no rewind
No wonder why they say love is blind,
because,

I said:
weeping willow
take my tears from my pillow
I said:
weeping willow
help me mend this sorrow

My girl run off with everything
my heart, my mind and my wedding ring

I never (sight it only thing?)
I've got the joy,
happiness a ton I bring
Watches school I hope I feel I hear ya'.....

Heart of this strong is so vibrant hearya'
Look it in selassie I give I faith
and Oh! So why an I say a praya'
Love, take I through the fire
night shakaman beeing true to wire
never i can get my heart desire
but still I can't retire.

I said:
weeping willow
take these tears and my pillow
I said:
weeping willow
help me mend this sorrow





She's gone, she's gone,
she's gone, she's gone, she's gone...
