Sona Jobarteh Lyrics


Hmmmm, sooba saya...

Fagantɔw lu kasikan,

Alu ma yee ne dun sɛɛ la ne dun tɔrɔ la?
Dunuya kɔnɔ diya ban na...
Bali saya ye n'dusu kasi...
Fɔ jɔn ye sabali
Aaah n'na ye la, i ka n'sɔɔn limanya
Ɲee le ma, kanu

N'ka kuma kan kɛla fɔnɲɔn ye

Mi ye dankan ye i seko tɛ a ra

I le ma ye ko diyɛya ye gɛlɛma

Dusukasi ni ɲanafin ooho

Mi ye dankan ye i seko tɛ a ra

I le ma ye ko diyɛya ye gɛlɛma

I ta lén min ka ne to dibi oh

Dusukasi ni ɲanafin ooho

I ye min kɛ ɲe dunuya tigɛ rɔ, Allah dɔrɔn bi i la sara la...

N'bena layiri duguni ta ye, fɔ ka n'sa, n'tena se ka ɲina i kɔ...

Ooo saya, m'maa saya

ROXANA RR

Written by Sona Jobarteh Malinke
Lyrics by Wilferd Abdoul Willey

Verse 1
Hmmmm,suba saya
in the darkness of death
the orphans cry
that disease is the source of death
can't you see i've suffered in pain??
I have no hope left in this world
because death broke my heart
but one has to resign to fate
mother.please help me accept this face
i'm talking to you,my love
listen to what i'm trying to say
my words have turned into air

CHORUS

No one can change destiny
do you know the pains of love

CHORUS CONT..

you left me here in darkness
heart broken and longing for you
only God can repay you
for what you did for me in this life
i promise you one thing
i will never forget you

VERSE 2

My mother told me that life is difficult
some are laughing while others cry everyday
when you left this world
you also took a part of me with you
the words you said to me
i still think about to this day
i promise you
until i die i will never forget you

This song saved my life at a time when I had lost complete touch of this world, when I heard her voice I was grounded again. Her voice in this song has a motherly quality to it and to me at the time it was like the voice of a mother guiding me back to the truth.

@Victor Rubahimbya i cried listening to this song in bed, there was something so deep about this song i cant put into words, it's as if it reminded my soul of something its missing, something so spiritual

This song, the music, touched me. I don't understand a word of what she is singing about, but there's a reverence about this song that is unspeakable...thank you....

Patricia-Anne Cockburn she talks about death. Saya mean death.
She's talking about the adsence of a loved one being swept away by death
