about

An ode to taking Kenyan buses

lyrics

Dusting the pictures now safe in their frames
They still look the same
It’s hard to remember the heat and the fuss
Stuck on that bus thinking,

Some day,
We’ll get there…

Thousands of bumps sending shocks down the spine
Trying not to whine
Blitzing through ditches this driver’s insane
We’ll just have to pray that some day,

Some day we’ll get there
I hope some day we’ll get there
There’s a chance we might get there
The man at the wheel gave us quite a scare

We’re not safe from the reach of the sun,
I will take you there
Plans are between the wheels and the dust
I’ll teach you not to care
You asked for an adventure but now
Will you take it on?
I’m not sure if you’d want to go back
But I’ll save you a seat on that bus

We try harder and harder to get some peace
But when your life’s on the bus to Turkana there is
No guarantees…

We’re not safe from the reach of the sun,
I will take you there
Plans are between the wheels and the dust
I’ll teach you not to care
You asked for an adventure but now
Will you take it on?
I’m not sure if you’d want to go back
But I’ll save you a seat on that bus
