Because You Love Me [And Because I Love You] (Song + Lyrics)

For Sirishty

[Verse 1]

Anyone who messes with you
Better bring their whole crew
I don’t back down to one or two
Not when I love you

Better bring their gods too
Because I’m bulletproof
When I’m near you
When I hear you

Anyone who makes you cry
Better take a look in my eyes
I’m not standing down
Until I live or die

Anyone who harmed you
Gonna wish they charmed you
I’ll run and punch through walls
If I have to

[Bridge]

I’ll take sticks and stones
I’ll take shoves and falls
I’ll take looks and stares
I’ll take the whole and all

I’ll take the scares and jumps
I’ll take pain and bumps
I’ll take the wounds and lumps
I’ll the take whatever you want

[Verse 2]

Anyone who hates you
Better learn to love you
Cause I’m a bodyguard
To a superstar

Better not try me
I won’t be stymied
It’s worth a handful of scars
To protect a work of art

Anyone who messes with you
Better bring their whole crew
I don’t back down to a few
Not when I love you

Better bring a god or two
Because I’m bulletproof
When I’m not far from you
I can’t be hurt by fools

[Chorus]

Because you love me
I will fight a duel
Because you love me
I’m strong as bamboo

Because you love me
Because I love you
Because you love me
Because I love you

A Song of The Wind (now with audio)

Check this out by two exceptional poets!

The Lighthouse

Audio reading with guitar

Attic window open on the night
a dim wash of light
as hinges creak
From the page, I raise my pen
is that your laugh, your voice I hear
blowing through the years

Is it you, is it real
or a song of the wind
it is you, is it real
I’m never sure

I see the miles of white tiles
that infinite airport floor
where you left me statuesque
our future time without a date
that never came

The shredding of our story
lost, somewhere in the night
amidst the terminal and the air
somehow I wanted to imagine more
that never was

Is it you, is it real
or a song of the wind
it is you, is it real
well, I never know

I checked my post
fifteen times this week
was that you I heard
addressing me with a howl
or a…

I can’t find anything sweeter than you

The Day You Came (Song + Lyrics)

For Sirishty (Baar baar din ye aaye! Baar baar dil ye gaaye!)

[Chorus]

Happy Birthday! (Bum-Bum-Yum-Bah-Dum)
Happy Birthday! (Bum-Bum-Yum-Bah-Dum)
This is your day! (Bum-Bum-Yum-Bah-Dum)
This is your day! (Bum-Bum-Yum-Bah-Dum)

Happy Birthday! (Bum-Bum-Yum-Bah-Dum)
Happy Birthday! (Bum-Bum-Yum-Bah-Dum)
Love you always (Bum-Bum-Yum-Bah-Dum)
Love you always (Bum-Bum-Yum-Bah-Dum)

[Verse 1]

The day that you were born
The world was all in pain
But the sky opened up
When it heard your name

The day you walked my way
I felt it right away
I’d treat you like a queen
And you’d forever reign

[Verse 2]

If there’s ever a day
When you’re in too much pain
I hope these words I say
Take your frown away

You know the day you came
I threw my cares away
There’s nothing like your love
It’s like a sacred prayer

It’s like a sacred prayer…
So:

[Chorus]

Fast (Song + Lyrics)

[Verse 1]
You got engaged pretty fast
I guess it’s cause you’re an ass
I’m kinda worried about you
Since your God is pretty cruel

What if you really go to Hell
For all things you did unwell?
You’re more a monster than a fool
No wonder why you were untrue

[Verse 2]
You said he wasn’t the one
But you got your arms around him
So what you told me wasn’t true
And now you’re marrying that fool
I hope he treats you sorta good
Because you said he never would

So I guess that you’re an ass
The one without any class
I’m kinda worried about you
Since your God’s pretty cruel
To sinners and devils like you
A shame there’s nothing I can do

But pray for you (Rah, Rah, Rah, Rah, Bah, Dah, Dah)
But pray for you (Rah, Rah, Rah, Rah, Bah, Dah, Dah)
But pray for you (Rah, Rah, Rah, Rah, Bah, Dah, Dah)

[Verse 3]
Don’t think you should’ve showed your ass
If you cannot leave things in the past
I’m kinda worried about you
Since your God is pretty cruel
And now you’re marrying that fool
I hope he treats you sorta good
Because you said he never would
You’re more a liar than a fool
No wonder why you were untrue
Since your God is pretty cruel
Just like you … (Rah, Rah, Rah, Rah, Bah, Dah, Dah)

You got engaged pretty fast
I guess that’s cause you’re an ass
You tried to leave me in the past
But you keep coming back

Pull (Song + Lyrics)

For Sirishty Thakur

[Verse 1]
Was in a hole when I first met you
There was no sun and there was no truth

I didn’t know that words had pull
But, uh, you made believe in something new

The way you love’s like a postcard view
And, uh, I never want to stray from you

I didn’t know your words had pull
But, uh, you lift me up to the penthouse, boo

[Pre-Chorus]
You’re nothing, you’re nothing
You’re nothing that’s bad
You’re something, you’re something
That I have to have … That I have to have

[Chorus]
You lift me up
You got you wings
You lift me up
You’re angeling

You lift me up
I hear them sing
You lift me up
I’m leveling

You life me up
You spread your wings
You lift me up
You’re angeling

You lift me up
I hear them sing
You lift me up
I’m leveling

[Pre-Chorus]
You’re nothing, you’re nothing
You’re nothing that’s sad
You’re something, you’re something
That I have to have … That I have to have

[Chorus]

Valentining (Song + Lyrics)

For Siristhy Thakur

[Verse 1]
Falling for forever when you show me your heart
I’d rather look at you than look at the stars
I always thought you belonged in the sky
The day you leave me is the day that I die

So far from special
They should make a new word
You’re not from Heaven
But you’re not from this Earth

If you were a color
You be only gold
I wanna hold you
Like you’re part of my soul

[Pre-Chorus]
Queen, Devi, Goddess, Pearl
It doesn’t matter
Be my valentine, girl

Queen, Devi, Goddess, Pearl
It doesn’t matter
Be my valentine girl

[Chorus x2]
Will you be?!
Will you be?!
Will you be?!
Will you be?!

I will beg!
I will beg!
Til I’m down on my knees!

Forever and ever
Is all that I need
Forever and ever
We’re valentining

[Bridge]
I guess in the end
I just want someone true
I guess that means
I want someone like you

[Chorus 2]
Will you please?!
Will you please?!
Will you please?!
Will you please?!

I will beg!
I will beg!
Til I’m down on my knees!

Forever and ever
Is all that I need
Forever and ever
We’re valentining

No

I won’t wish you a Happy New Year
Since I wished you a Happy Birthday
                                                                And
You never replied

(Perhaps you just forgot it was your day?)

No, I won’t wish you a Happy New Year
But if the world was ending
                                               Only
You know where I’d be
