Knaan – Fatima chords
(Capo 2nd Fret) Here is a good way to play the pattern that is played throughout the verses. It's based on an E chord: E-------------0--------0--|-----------0-----4-------|---------1---------------|-------2-----------------|-----2-------------------|0------------------------|ESpices herbs the sweet scent of flowerWe came out precisely the hour Clouds disappear the sun shows the power No chance of a probable showerEI fell in love with my neighbors daughterI wanted to protect and support her Never mind I'm just 12 and a quarter I had dreams beyond our border.E (strumming)Is it true when they say all you need is just love,Is it trueBWhat about those who have lovedEOnly to find that it's taken awayEAnd why do they say that the children have rights to be freeTo be freeBWhat about those who I've knownEWhose memory still lives inside of me.E (make a different, more intense strumming pattern) Fatima,BWhat did the Young Man sayABefore he stole you awayEOn that fateful day FatimaEFatima,BDid he know your nameAOr the plans we made,ETo go to New York City, FatimaE (back to pattern at the beginning) And after school we studied the lessons I ask God to slow down the seconds He does the opposite that's what I'm guessing I better chill and count my own blessings Fatima, Fatima what is the matter How come you ain't come up the ladder So we can be like there's no tomorrow Damn you gonna make me wait until tomorrow She spoke Arabic and Swahili She'd say Upendo (Swahili for love) Anta Habibi (Arabic for, you are my love/dearest friend) You so bright, you shine like my TV Then one day she never came to meet me Is it true when they say all you need is just love, Is it true What about those who have loved Only to find that it's taken away And why do they say that the children have rights to be free To be free What about those who I've known Whose memory still lives inside of me. Fatima, What did the Young Man say Before he stole you away On that fateful day Fatima Fatima, Did he know your name Or the plans we made, To go to New York City, Fatima (Repeat) If beauty was in the eyes of beholder how come everyone hushed when she walked by How come girls would look just to scold her How come the angel wanted to hold her? Fatima, Fatima I'm in America I make rhymes and I make them delicate You would have liked the parks in Connecticut You would have said I'm working too hard again. Damn you shooter, Damn you the building Whose walls hid the blood she was spilling Damn you Country so good at killing Damn you feeling, for persevering Is it true when they say all you need is just love, Is it true What about those who have loved Only to find that it's taken away And why do they say that the children have rights to be free To be free What about those who I've known Whose memory still lives inside of me. Fatima, What did the Gun Man Say before he took you away on that fateful day Fatima Did he know your name, or the plans we made To go to New York City (Repeat) Fatima.. (Spoken) Now I just want to make it clear, I don't want you to shed a tear. Because this here, is a celebration, We're not mourning, We're celebrating Yeah So baby don't cry, Please don't let the tears fall So don't cry..
