As I sit down quietly confronted by both of you
Smiling with this look of guilt, because I’m so confused
The fear of losing one of you comes straight to my head
I get an uneasy feeling, a feeling I really dread
I reminisce of the past…
Experiences, both good and bad…
Days when things went wrong…
But in different ways they made me glad
Kate was my love, then later my addiction
With her I was God, with little or no restrictions
Almost like Saul, when he slayed Christians
Or King Solomon with his wisdom and riches
But Grace made me happy and therefore healthy
Right from the first time I saw her, I wanted her desperately
With her in front of me, I felt confidently
Like I could fly to mars, no mercury
Now I’m confronted by the two, who do I choose?
I’m contemplating, who do I lose?
Don’t want to pick wrongly and at the end be a fool
God why must I pick one? Why not pick you two?
But the moment finally comes for my decision
Even my brother closely watches, like he’s on a mission
He impatiently whispers, Ateli pick one quickly
You’re making a big deal out of this, when there isn’t one really
Then I realized with their names I’ve made a mistake
Because sometimes, with names I tend to exaggerate
So I stare deep at Kate and Grace right on my plate
Then correct myself and ask, Cake or Grapes which do I take?
