I escape from myself to hide into you
I long for the freedom behind your bars
I cry for the tears of your sweet laughter
I steal beyond your generous giving
With every forgiveness I seek guiltiness
For every pain there must be a relief
When tranquility accompanies fear
Each sunrise shall be the end of a dream

For the time being what’s present is absent
Once our love was rigid now it’s elastic
Shadows appear shallowly like passing clouds
Pain screams loudly like dogs of hound

When you don’t read
My writings find no need
When you don’t listen
My letters gain no addition
When you don’t answer
I stand a lonely dancer

A shattered puzzle of thousand pieces
A well-made project without a thesis
Our lives has become a meaningless mess
We’re breathing air as a duty no more nor less
We’re using the boards we bought today
To surf on the waves coming from yesterday

When the past overtakes the moment
There must be an unfinished content
Take my hand and drag me into nowhere
To the moment we used to find love everywhere
To hear people whispering wish we are him and her
We won’t turn the page let’s write a new book
We’d keep the old style but change the look
Shall we get ourselves free again without a hook?

This raging war must find an end with a truce
I’m surrendering and taking back my troops
Lies never were meant to last against truths
My words are my truth
My feelings are my troops
You’re presence is my sole truce. . .

Be still tonight oh my soul.
This night i say!
For i know this too will pass
Even if it tarries but a while.

Be still tonight oh my soul
This night i plead!
For darkness lasts only for a while
By break of dawn I shall smile

Be still tonight oh my soul
For this night i shall rest!
Till the moon fades away
And the sun shines forth her light

My heart is heavy
My mind is busy
My head is pounding hard
All because I worry about what tomorrow may or my not be.

I toil hard under the sun
 All because I worry about what tomorrow may or may not be.

I found me friends
I lost me friends
I made few more
I lost a handful more
All because I worry about what tomorrow may or may not be.

I hope and I pray
I pray , I have faith
I sing and I praise
And I worship too
All because I know YOU own my tomorrow.
