From the recording Nyamavhuvhu Night Sounds

Lyrics

Then there were times
When we saw not eye to eye,
We'd hide our heads in the sand,
And pretend we weren't in love,
With our tails in the air,
You'd think that we didn't care.

Then there were nights
When we fought like cat and dog,
We used to grill our hearts to cinders,
We were callous you and I,
With our tails in the air,
Once upon a time there were times.

From hearts poisoned by anger
Words were thrown,
Taking us further from a place
Where forever was known,
Can't allow pride to sit at the throne
Especially when,
You have a vision of building a home.
Remembered only memories of the hurting and pain,
Scratching my brain,trying to find the words to explain,
We ordinary people expecting the world from each other,
Standing in fragments of the promises we made to each other,
Could it be that ,
We listened to the rats and snakes who use their,
Good intentions to mask their hate?
So we built our realities on false reports,
I understand why many file for divorce in court,
But through the tempest,
We never chose to be free,
Broken mirrors revealing what we could grow to be,
Without you life is a beautiful sunset to a blind man
that's all I have so I just left it all in time's hands,
And time stands as the healer of wounds,
Embers of our early love kill the chill in the room,

It's all ups and downs and smiles and frowns
As we get ourselves back onto solid ground
it's all,
Ups and downs and smiles and frowns
As we get ourselves back onto solid ground

And there were times.

Then there were times,
When we felt like making love
But we would sleep with backs facing
Opposite sides,
With tears in our eyes and lumps in our throats,
There were times.

Yes there were nights,
When we felt like making love
But we would sleep with backs a facing
Opposite sides,
With tears in our eyes and lumps in our throats,
There were times.
