One Foot

'One Foot' is a song by my favourite new band fun from the album 'Some Nights'. The lyrics spoke about what I had in mind to write about...decided to post the lyrics instead. Such a beauty if you know the meaning.


I'm standing in [Lagos] just waiting for something to happen
I can't help but look
Thinking that everyone doesn't get it
To my left is a window
Where did I go?
My reflection just blends into rows of clothes
And bad ideas but ideas nonetheless


So I'll put one foot in front of the other one
I don't need a new love or a new life
Just a better place to die
I'll put one foot in front of the other one
I don't need a new love or a new life
Just a better place to die


I happened to stumble upon a chapel last night
And I can't help but back up
When I think of what happens inside
I got friends locked in boxes
That's no way to live
What you're calling a sin isn't up to them
After all, I thought we were all your children
But I will die for my own sins, thanks a lot
We'll rise up ourselves
Thanks for nothing at all
So up off the ground
Our forefathers are nothing but dust now


I'll put one foot in front of the other one
I don't need a new love or a new life
Just a better place to die
I'll put one foot in front of the other one
I don't need a new love or a new life
Just a better place to die


Maybe I should learn to shut my mouth
I am [almost] twenty-five
And I can't make a name for myself
Some nights I break down and cry
I'm lucky that my [mother's] still alive
[She's] been fighting all [her] life
And this is all I've ever known
May [her] soul live on forever in my song


I'll put one foot in front of the other one
I don't need a new love or a new life
Just a better place to die
I'll put one foot in front of the other one
I don't need a new love or a new life
Just a better place to die

  3. My husband and I have been married for 3 and a half years. In June it will be 7 years that we have been a part of each other lives. Recently he found out about a guy I slept with when we were separated and I did not tell him about. Before we got married we both agreed to let everything out and start fresh. I didn’t tell him. I was embarrassed bc the guy and I never actually had sex…just everything that led up to it. not to mention it was my brothers best friend and a huge mistake. well it came out recently along with some lies. A friend told my husband I cheated on him and I have never cheated on my husband nor would I ever. He is convinced I am a cheater. we have 2 beautiful kids and all I have ever wanted is a happy family. my kids and my husband truly are my everything. I can not see a future where my husband is not in it. I want to do whatever I can to save my marriage but I feel my husband is already set on the divorce. I know I could have been a better wife to him….a wife he deserves but now I fee like I have realized it too late. I look at my kids and I hate myself for allowing myself to break my family apart. I know my husband is not perfect and he has hurt me tremendously these past 5 years we have been off and on but we made it through for a reason. I love him and I want to save my marriage, one day a friend of my introduce me to a spell caster online who lift me up gave me hope and with-in 2 days after his spell my husband who told me he needed a divorce, called me and take me back home to me i must say today we are happily as one big family again all thanks to Dr joy a father and a real spell caster.Contact email address joylovespell@gmail.com Call him +2347059014517
