(Languages: English, Yoruba)

The grass is greener on the other side
That’s what I thought – before I took the ride
I burned 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
If I had known,
The life i was searching for was already my own
Ire n be nile oo, ire ayo (goodness is at home)

Refrain:
Ire x3 (Goodness, Goodness, Goodness)
Ire ire ayo O npe mio (Goodness is calling out me)
Oni kin ma bo (It is telling me to come)
Oni kin ma bo nile (It is telling me to come back home)
(Repeat)

The grass is greener where you water the ground
That’s what I found – when I took the ride
I realized the mountain I’ve been climbing
Is nothing but sand
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
If I had known
The life I was searching for
Was already my own

(Refrain)
