lyrics

Glad I’m feeling free
You can count on me
To flee the place I’m in
When the light fades in
With a broken heart
And a stalking star
Don’t know where to turn
Bridges round me burn.

And I pray with all my heart
God gives me another start
Anywhere is my home, under blue skies
Never been a lucky boy
Weathering the storms, I just get along
Couldn’t give up on a dream, yet it’s been so long
Mother you wouldn’t know me, if you saw me.

Mama, mama won’t you call the angels
Papa, papa don’t you call the cops, Oyibo
Mama, mama won’t you call the angels
Papa, papa don’t you call the cops

So glad I’m feeling free
Well you can count on me
To swallow my pride
For a gracious ride

Eyes analyze my case
Spit bane in my face
Still I hold it high
Deep inside I cry
Luck is nothing but a ploy, with devastating charms
Tracing down my palm, not gonna give up on a dream
Till I run out of steam
Mother you know me best, I come from your breath.

Mama, mama won’t you call the angels
Papa, papa don’t you call the cops, Oyibo
Mama, mama won’t you call the angels
Papa, papa don’t you call the cops

Mama, mama, mama the angels
Papa, papa, papa the cops
Mama, mama, mama the angels
Papa, papa, papa call the cops
