` She Decides To Die


She decides to die
Every time she closed her eyes
She stared death in the eyes
So she decides to die
As she walks on the lagos slime
Everywhere she goes is grime
And she can't get a life
Lest she puts up a fight
And she decides to die
As she can't kill out the time
Everyday in life is strife
Her life as empty as the sky
So she decides to die
When she realised she can't
win the fight
She decides to die
But I missed the way she smiled
How she walked and stride
I once felt she loved me inside
Yet she decides to die
She decides to die.
