"Yeneh Ababa (rose)" as written by and Kenna,....
Take me for the rose I am
Lay yourself in my bed again
Showered and covered in petals of red
Are you lonely?
Are you lonely?
Blame me for the thorns, my friend
Does the pain outweigh the blessing?
Showered and covered in petals of red
Are you lonely?
Are you lonely?

Whoa
(go slow)
Whoa
(and I will cover you)
Whoa
(go slow)
But you left me high and wild
But you left me high

Whoa
(go slow)
Whoa
(and I will cover you)
Whoa
(go slow)
But you left me high and wild
But you left me high and wild
See, you left me high

Take me for the rose I am
Lay yourself in my bed again
Showered and covered in petals of red

    General CommentThis song sounds like a love song. It may or not be one though. In this song it sounds like the person wants to be accepted for who he is. I liked it.

    General CommentI asked Kenna what Yeneh ababa means, obviously its ethiopian, but he said it means "My Rose"
    Given the title I would have to say its a love song.
    Kenna is a very cool dude, if you have any questions, you can ask him on his myspace and he will personally answer you.
