about

Say Yea is a reaction to the traditionalism upheld by many Muslim families, and the elaborate rights of passage suitors must go through in order to prove that a marriage is viable.

lyrics

Verse I
We’re driving
past the deepest fear I have.
Rejection tastes so sweet.
I rebuild my confidence.

Turn to your baba.
And ask him for your hand
He ripped one into the curb.
And we laughed until it hurt.

CHORUS
I will wait for you | Will you be waiting for me?
Till your daddy says yea, your mama say yea
Till your siblings say yea, and all your friends say yea

VERSE II

You’re searching for answers
Memorizing the book
So you cut me from your life
I rebuild my confidence

Turn to your mama
I see you in her eyes
Ignoring the alarm
The deepest fear I have

CHORUS
I will wait for you | Will you be waiting for me?
Till your daddy says yea, your mama say yea
Till your siblings say yea, and all your friends say yea!

VIII

I’m down by the Quarter | Find a second line
Get myself in front of them & I’m out to space again.

I’m searching for answers | Clawing through the parade
Get myself to somewhere new & I’m by myself again.

I hear the ocean whispering to me
You’re so special but I’m so sorry

Find myself out holding hands by the levee
Extra special, anti-social.
