You are my foundation.
You were everything to me.
I thought this was my damnation.

About to go through segregation;
The lock to my key,
You are my foundation.

How was I to deal with separation?
You are the start of me.
I thought this was my damnation.

Away on my migration,
The fireplace to my chimney
You are my foundation.

I never had a preparation,
But I had to leave.
I thought this was my damnation.

Now I have a new habitation,
Even though I'm a deportee.
You are my foundation;
I thought thus was my damnation.
