Fuse ODG - Letter To Tina

Tina ti, Tina-na-na-na eh
Tina ti, Tina-na-na-na eh

Tina ti, Tina-na-na-na eh
Tina na na Tina, Tina-na-na-na eh

Tina-na-na-na eh, a Tina, Tina
Tina-na-na-na eh
Tina-na-na-na eh, a Tina, Tina
Tina-na-na-na eh
Tina-na-na-na eh, a Tina, Tina, Tina

When it pours, it rains
Makes me appreciate you through the storms, the pain
How could I ever hate you, I closed the door in your face
To myself I couldn't stay true, now I'm no more ashamed

So Tina let me love you once more
Tina, let me love you once more
Tina, let me love you once more
Tina, let me love you once more
Tina, let me love you yeah


I'm like Tina, Tina, Tina
Baby let me hold you 'cause my love is getting deeper
Tired of the way they portray you in the media
So I'm trying to bring change in the way that they see ya
They need to know, now they know, you're a leader
Mother who gave birth to the children of Africa
Now we're grown making moves on our own
Need to let the world know that your home is a healer
It's like we're fighting the media
They show us the wrong vibe I've been reading up
I'm trying to show a different side to what they're feeding us
Time to regurgitate the lies we've been eating up

I know I chose this life
I know I'm just a vessel like Joseph's wife
It may not be merry but we know we'll be alright
And some days seeming scary but were holding on tight
And this road's getting cold on this mission of life
My dreams getting bolder as I visualize
I saw Africa rose from through the vision of christ
To follow me on this road and connect to my vibe
I'm just playing my role in this mission of life
That's why I had to go and just rate us were at it
I saw so many goals in the children's eye
But all they wanna show is the children crying

When it pours, it rains
Makes me appreciate you through the storms, the pain
How could I ever hate you, I closed the door in your face
To myself I couldn't stay true, now I'm no more ashamed

So Tina, let me love you once more
(Tina-na-na-na eh) Tina, let me love you once more
(Tina-na-na-na eh) Tina, let me love you once more
(Tina-na-na-na eh) Tina, let me love you once more
(Tina-na-na-na eh) Tina, let me love you, yeah
(Tina-na-na-na eh)

I don't just make music just to make music
I'm making music to change lives
I'm making music 'cause I'm proud to be African
I'm making music 'cause I want to change the perception of Africa
When I was young, when I was younger
The perception of Africa was kids with flies around their mouth
And hunger and poverty and stuff like that
But we're grown now, wer'e successful men, we're doing our thing
And its important that if the media don't show that, we show that as African men
So as Fuse ODG I don't just want to make music just for myself
I want to make music to change lives and to change the continent

(Tina-na-na-na eh)
(Tina-na-na-na eh)
(Tina-na-na-na eh, Tina-na-na-na eh)
(Tina-na-na-na eh, Tina-na-na-na eh)
