Song Description

Guy sings about a girl, Julia's daughter, whom he's waiting for at a spot. He ponders all the things people have been saying about her, and thinks they're wrong about her. See Julia's daughter dances in a bar, but she's lost her Dad and her brother to war

Story Behind the Song

Just the emotion that I anticipated a woman would go through who had lost so much... and how sadness and misfortune change people's lives, sometimes in the heart-breaking ways.


(Nkeng Alemanji)

I?ve been standing here I?ve been waiting for you
I don?t know if it?s true the things they say about you

I don?t know if they?re right or wrong
I don?t care it?s that kinda song
but I think they?re wrong? they?re wrong again

Julia?s daughter dances in a bar
What a crazy world they say
But she?s got dark quiet eyes and bright red shoes
and in her mind it?s engraved live with heavenly rules
in her mind it?s engraved live with heavenly rules

I don?t know if they?re right or wrong
about the things they say about Julia?s girl
But I think they?re wrong
wrong again

She thought she saw him in a photograph
In her dreams on a golden path
He was smiling as though he could see her
As though there was life behind that broken glass
But he?s long gone she?s kissed her silly bone bye
She?s lost a husband and now a son to war

See she don?t know if they?re right or wrong
About the value of all things in love and war
When nothing is fun not even summer songs
And not every body lives in conscious town

She?s been so wronged - wronged again
They?ve done her wrong - wrong again
They?ve done her wrong - wrong again
