A LETTER FROM MBENGUE
Music & Lyrics : Helene Faussart & Celia Faussart
Nubiatik Publishing LLC

Lately I feel like a stranger here
My mind flies away
I need to slow down
bring my life into perspective
Reconnection flows over the ocean
So I call:

How are you ?
YOUR COUSIN JUST GOT MARRIED
How are things going ?
YOU KNOW WE'RE FIGHTING HERE
How is Grand Ma feeling ?
SHE JUST PASSED LAST NIGHT

This is where i'd rather be
I have to take my plane


A LETTER FROM MBENGUE
I MISS YOU MUCH
MY MOTHERLAND
I'M COMING SOON
FROM SUNSET TO SUNRISE
FROM DAWN TILL' DUSK
I FEEL YOUR HEARTBEAT
MMH …. MY LAND

Screams in the morning
Aunties chanting
Churches crowded
Sounds of Amen
I hear girls laughing
To their uncle's teasing
Happy Life is where simple life begins

And they wander ?
WHEN ARE YOU LEAVING ?
They are questioning ?
WHEN WILL YOU COME BACK ?
They are crying ?
WE GONNA MISS YOU ….

And i cried too
'Cause I had to take my plane

A LETTER FROM MBENGUE
I MISS YOU MUCH
MY MOTHERLAND
I'M COMING SOON
FROM SUNSET TO SUNRISE
FROM DAWN TILL' DUSK
I FEEL YOUR HEARTBEAT
MMH …. MY LAND

This is my letter from Mbengue
I am comin' soon

Come with me let's take a ride
To the promise land
Mango trees and scents of earth
Come with me to Cameroon
To my motherland
Take my hand oh
We're together
