(I grew up in Sierra Leone)
And her pink skies will keep me warm
Sierra Leone
Sierra Leone

from Frank Ocean – Sierra Leone Lyrics on Rap Genius


Sierra Leone is a country in Africa that relies on mining diamonds. It is infamous for a civil war that left around 50,000 dead.

The country is also know for its pink sky sunset as seen here:

The pink skies are used as a metaphor for his girlfriend’s nether regions. If he has nothing else in his life. (He says his home is Sierra Leone — war torn, chaotic but still home), in all of the difficulty being a young man in this world, you can take solace in the one you love and in making love.
