say hello ( Rosie Thomas feat. Sufjan Stevens )

May 31, 2008

If I find him
If I just follow
Would he hold me and never let me go
Would he let me borrow his wool winter coat
I don’t know, I don’t Know

If I see her standing there alone
At the train station, three stops from her home
I have half a mind to say what I’m thinking anyway
But I don’t know, I don’t know

There’s an airplane in the sky
With a banner right behind
“Loneliness is just a crime
look each other in the eye
And say hello-o-o-o-o
and say hello-o-o-o-o”

Hey there. How you doing?
hi, my name is Mary.
Hi

The Way of Love

March 16, 2008

By Haddad Alwi (Album: The Way of Love)

*the Prophet’s path, the way of love
only by this Love you’ll rise above
like a dove that’s been set free
love with longing is the key
this love with longing is the key

honey, nectar, sweetness and cream
orchids blooming by a mountain stream
starlit skies and waves on the sand
next to love they can’t stand
next to this love they can not stand

yaa Robii yaa sarii’ar ridho irham man
ro’su maalihir-rojaa
wa thina maa qod sa-alnaa bi liqoo-i
khoiril anami
yaa khoiral a’anaami

ulang *

yaa Robii yaa man-ismuhu dawa wa dzikruhu
syifaa-un lana
robbiy faj’al mujtama’na ghoyatuhu husnul
khitami
bihusnil khitami

how can I find a way to express
something that cannot be thought or guesses
something more than just words?
this love is neither seen nor heard
this love is neither seen nor heard

Love is the rope given by ALLAH
it will save you from every flaw
grasp it then He wil draw you near

Yaa toybah, yaa toybah

Yaa turo hal uro lii haajib

I’m yours

February 29, 2008

Well you done done me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill but you’re so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks
and now I’m trying to get back
Before the cool done run out
I’ll be giving it my bestest
Nothing’s going to stop me but divine intervention
I reckon it’s again my turn to win some or learn some

I won’t hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I’m yours

Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you’re free
Look into your heart and you’ll find love love love
Listen to the music of the moment maybe sing with me
i love peaceful melody
It’s your God-forsaken right to be loved love loved love loved

So I won’t hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait I’m sure
There’s no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I’m yours

I’ve been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer
My breath fogged up the glass
And so I drew a new face and laughed
I guess what i’ma saying is there ain’t no better reason
To rid yourself of vanity and just go with the seasons
It’s what we aim to do
Our name is our virtue

I won’t hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait I’m sure
There’s no need to complicate
Our time is short
this is our fate, I’m yours

Well no no, well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you’re free
Look into your heart and you’ll find the sky is yours
Listen to the music of the moment come and dance with me
A lá one big family (2nd time: A lá happy family; 3rd time: A lá peaceful melody)
It’s your God-forsaken right to be loved love love love

I won’t hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I’m sure
There’s no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I’m yours

No please, don’t complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I’m yours

No please, don’t hesitate
no more, no more
It cannot wait
The sky is your’s!
