i absolutely love this song by gigi.
even though i have no idea what she is saying, i simply adore her voice and the melody of the song.
her delivery sounds naive at times, yet there is wisdom and strength.
every time i play this song, i become overwhelmed with joy and begin to cry.
i also love to clap and sing along with the background.
i imagine the song is about god and how his/her spirit has watched over her beloved home, ethiopia.
hopefully, one day i’ll come across someone that knows amharic and maybe they will translate this song for me.
