I Write: Stuck At Work (Original Lyrical Idea)

Written in 2016.

I’m stuck at work again
I’ve been at it since 8am
Working hard like a man
Wondering how my life turned out like this

Mama told me forget romance
You better work, baby, earn your keep
Cos if you don’t, you’ll be damned
When he leaves you, he leaves you with nothing

Sacrifice my sleep
These days I’m barely counting sheep
All the meals I had to skip
Gotta do what must be done
Just to earn my keep

I Write: My Ache (Original Lyrical Idea)

My feet ache
But not as bad as my heart
Plunged into the abyss
Waiting to hit the bottom end

My head spins
But not as dizzying as your games
Rotating on wheels
Creaking sounds of carousel

Round, round, round we go
When we stop, nobody knows

And so it turns
The wheel of life
Hoping it will bring me somewhere
I realise
We are so full of despair
The only thing we have is air

My hands hurt
From the bites of the cold
But not as cold
As your heart

My heart burns
From the flames of your lies
Screeching tyres
I gotta burn some rubber out of here

Round, round, round they go
Where they stop, nobody knows

And so it turns
The wheel of life
Hoping it will bring me somewhere
I realise
We are so full of despair
That even the day is
As dark as the winter night
I hold a light to your face
But you erased my name

The only thing we have is air
The only thing we have is air
To breathe
But we never know if we do live

And so it turns
The wheel of life
Hoping it will bring me somewhere
I realise
We are so full of despair
The only thing we have is air

And so it turns
The wheel of life
Hoping it will bring me somewhere
I realise
We are so full of despair
That even the day is
As dark as the winter night

The only thing I have is you
But you erased me

I Write: I Chant Your Name (Original Lyrical Idea)

I chant your name
A wish in the back of my head
Hoping to see you right in front of me

I cry out Your name
A desire that is deep in my heart
Hoping to know if You will hear me

Blasphemy

This love is just an illusion
Yet it’s so real to me
If I can see, I can feel
If I can feel, I can touch
I guess a little is too much

I bow down in fear
A longing to make you stay here
Hoping that you will love me

I walk away when You’re near
A yearning to be with my dear
Hoping that You will let me love him

Impiety

Your love is more than illusion
It’s so real yet I oversee
I’m deaf and dumb
And dumb and blind
I know too little in my mind

I Ramble: 15 January 2017

In the name of Allah, the All-Compassionate, the All-Merciful.

I have been waiting for le boyfriend all of my life. I have been wading in the vast ocean of loneliness for what feels like forever.

And now that he’s come to rescue me, from my loneliness and from strange men, I feel free.

Thank you so much, darling, for the wonderful Saturdate yesterday! 😉

[Verse 1]
Picture me rolling
Out in the open, baby, I know
That you would notice
You have been hoping I wouldn’t go

[Hook 1]
Should I be waiting?
Should I be waiting for you?
Don’t keep me wading
I will turn blue

[Verse 2]
Picture me rolling
Out in the open with some other man I know
Thought you would notice
And you were hoping feelings wouldn’t start to grow

[Hook 2]
While I was wading, while I was wading
Wading for you
I have been wading, I will be wading
Till I turn blue

[Verse 3]
I am not perfect
I would never let you think I was more than this
As good as it gets
I’ll have one regret, you’re something I cannot miss

[Hook 3]
I will be wading, I will be wading
For you
I will be wading, I will be wading
Till I turn blue

[Verse 3]
I am not perfect
I would never let you think I was more than this
As good as it gets
I’ll have one regret, you’re something I cannot miss

[Hook 3]
I will be wading, I will be wading
Wading for you
I will be wading, I will be wading
Till I turn blue

[Outro]
And I will do it, I’ll do it
I’ll prove it, I’ve proved it
I’ve proven my love
Baby, don’t do it, don’t do it
Don’t ruin what you in
And you did, my love
And I will do it, I’ll do it
I’ll prove it, I’ve proved it
I’ve proven my love
Baby, don’t do it, don’t do it
Don’t ruin what you in
And you did, my love

And Allah is Al-Aziz, the Victorious. – MM
