You keep on pushing and you'll get your answer But it won't be the one you want it to be I think it?s funny how we don't get storms around here anymore And the rain, when it comes, it tastes like nothing
I want you to remember me For things I never did 'Cause no one in this world deserves To see my happiness
I know what it?s supposed to be like to be young But it is not the way I thought it would be My paranoia functioned like a broken mirror To distort and destroy any clarity and what's more
I want you to give back to me The child I never was 'Cause I believed what I was told Like everybody does

Michael Jackson's "Liberian Girl" opens with the South African female singer Letta Mbulu saying the Swahili phrase "Naku penda piya-naku taka piya-mpenziwe." There was some geographic liberty here, as Swahili is not spoken in the West African nation of Liberia.
