Song of the Week: Ire by Adekunle Gold

Ire by Adekunle Gold is our song of the week.

It is a slow-tempo song that leaves you inspired. In it, Adekunle Gold talks about some life lessons he has learnt through experience; lessons like how the grass is not necessarily greener on the other side, but is only greener if you water it; that the seeming mountain he had been trying to surmount was nothing but mere sand.

Ire is the kind of song you want to listen to carefully and ponder over.

Find below are the lyrics of the song.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
The grass is greener on the other side
That’s what I thought before I took the ride
I burnt my bridges, so I’d never look back
But if I had known, the life I was searching for
Was looking me right in the eye oh oh oh
If I had known the life I was searching for
Was already my own
Ire nbe nile o Ire ayo o

[Chorus]
Ire Ire Ire
Ire Ire ayo, o kpe mi o
o kpe mi kin ma bo o
O ni kin ma bo “Ire o”
O ni kin ma bo
Ire o
Ire Ire Ire “Ire o”
Ire Ire ayo, o kpe mi o “Ire ayo”
O ni kin ma bo “O ni kin ma bo”
O ni kin ma bo “O ni kin ma bo”
Ire o

[Verse 2]
The grass is greener when you water the ground
That’s what I found when I took the ride
I realize the mountain I’ve been climbing is nothing but sand o
I didn’t know I already had the answer no I didn’t know
But if I had known, the life I was searching for
Was looking me right in the eye oh oh oh
If I had known the life I was searching for was already my own

 

[Chorus]
Ire Ire Ire “Ire o”
Ire Ire ayo, o kpe mi o “O kpe mi oh oh oh”
O ni kin ma bo “O ni kin ma bo”
O ni kin ma bo “O ni kin ma bo”
Ire
Ire Ire Ire “Ire o”

Ire Ire ayo, o kpe mi o “It’s calling out to me”
O ni kin ma bo “O ni kin ma bo”
O ni kin ma bo “Ire o”
Ire
Ire Ire Ire “Ire Ire o Ire ayo”
o kpe mi o “o kpe mi kin mabo”
E da mi sha tokun fe si mi o, jen kpada sin le
Ma je sun mo aye, maje

[Outro]
Ire Ire Ire
Ire Ire ayo
O kpe mi o
O ni kin ma bo
O ni kin ma bo
