about

This song is about the mildly awkward relationship I had with one of my host families when living in Nairobi. I got along great with their youngest, who was my age, but I think I was a bit loud and imposing for the parents.

lyrics

Close the door don’t look behind it.
Close your mouth I truly mind it
Close the tube
I’m nearly blinded
Close your eyes
You just might find it

He walks in the room
Just a moment to soon
To catch the lingering words of conversation
I don’t understand a word they’ve said

He walks through the gate
Just a moment to late
She checks him with distrustful hesitation

Don’t you mess with daddy’s flowers
Don’t spill water for your showers
Don’t regret your missing hours
Don’t forget who has the power

He walks in the room
Just a moment to soon
To catch the lingering words of conversation

He walks through the gate
Just a moment to late
She checks him with distrustful hesitation
