  • They wonder how we do it
    They ask me if I care
    They wonder how come the years
    Haven't sought more lover's tear, oh!

    They question that it's true
    A love which never wilts
    And they go, and they seek you there
    Where furies smite young slits

    And they must seek you there
    Down in the strife
    And they must seek you there
    Where death outnumbers life, oh!

    Mm, oh!

    Ooh, and they have no idea
    What we do at night, yeah
    And how for you and I
    The hour never strikes, oh!

    They wonder how we do it
    They wonder how come
    How come I've been doing things with you
    I would never tell my mom

    And they must seek you there
    Down in the strife
    And they must seek you there
    Where death outnumbers life, oh!

    Down in the strife, oh, oh, oh Writer/s: Ayse Yolander Hassan, Camille Berthomier, Fay Geraldine Milton, Gemma Louise Thompson
