»I wanted to look up to you. I really trusted you and every word you said…«

(Love is what the word was)

I saw a picture
How could you be so careless
How could you have done that to us
And I write this letter
I send it all back to you
And every word you said

In there every word, oh oh oh oh
How could you have done that to us

You treated me like a stranger
And all the time I was loving you
All your slick moves
They were once innocent moves
I wanted to look up to you
I really trusted you
And every word you said

(Love is what the word was)

I was loving you like a child
All the time you were smiling
The same smile
I was loving you like a child
I really trusted you

Every word you said
Every word you said
(Love is what the word was)

Every word you said
Every word you said
(Love is what the word was)
(Love is what the word was)

Every word you said
Every word you said

Every word you said
Every word you said
(Love is what the word was)
I send it back to you, yeah
(Love is what the word was)

Every word you said
Every word you said
(Love is what the word was)
I send it all back to you, yeah
(Love is what the word was)

(Sade Adu)

…and here’s another one from the divine Miss Adu, a song that I’ve mentioned before, but it still (or again) reflects much of what I’m going through right now.

»If someone has to lose, I don’t want to play…« — exactly!

The past few weeks in Namibia and Cape Town were rather therapeutic but not at all relaxing or even happy. But I did fall in love with Namibia, it’s simply overwhelmingly beautiful. (Especially the little town of Swakopmund, beautifully located on the coast: roaring waves from the Atlantic, the Namib desert behind the town’s borders, the old German houses.) Cape Town is a flamboyant, vivid city beyond compare that I’d recommend to anyone with a sense for beauty and cuture. But you have to have some time on your hands; ten days do not suffice to enjoy the city, a stay of two weeks minimum would be far more convenient. Please give me some time to fix my holiday report. I’m pretty busy again already so … be patient. Love & Light!
