Sweetie

I tried:
Pavlova from Australia
Leivasupp from Estonia
Wuzetka from Poland
Nanaimo bars from Canada
Gulab jamun from Pakistan
Kashata from East Africa
Crema volteada from Peru
And still:

I can’t find anything sweeter than you

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]

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

The Anatomy Of A Hug

Through an endless cycle of embrace
I will go beyond all lovers
And spin your world in reverse

Travel back to a time before myths
Reimagine the universe as the shape of our kiss

Slow

        Down

The

       Earth

Until the core and mantle flake

Whileholdingtheatmospherewithinreach

Atlas held the celestial spheres on his shoulders
Now you hold them on your hips
And spin my world in reverse

Sirishty (Song Lyrics + Song)

[Verse 1]

Shakespeare would’ve written about you
If he had the chance to

Newton would question all the laws
If he saw you up against the stars

Socrates would have so many questions
Buddha would call you perfected perfection

Darwin would rethink evolution
Moses would have another commandment

Galileo would change his mind
Realize the sun revolves around your eyes

[Chorus 1]

Sirishty
Do you know what you would’ve done to da Vinci?

Sirishty
Do you know what you would’ve done to Ghandi?

Sirishty
Do you know what you would’ve done to Genghis Kahn?

Sirishty
Do you know what you do to the gods?

[Verse 2]

Sirishty
If you were from another time
There’d be no water to wine

Sirishty
If you were from another time
There’d be no atomic bomb

Sirishty
If you were from another time
There’d be no Beethoven or Bach

[Chorus 2]

Sirishty
Too bad you can’t travel back
Too bad you can’t travel back

You’d be the most sung about
You’d be the most written about
You’d be the most talked about
You’d be the most

Sugar Moon (Lyrics + Song)

For Situ

[Verse 1]
I want to know your name
But you won’t give me a thing
Told me to guess, that’s true
I tell you what I’m gonna do

[Chorus]
You’re something like the sky
You always hold my view
If I could call you anything
I’d call you Sugar Moon

I’d call you

[Verse 2]
I finally know your name
Think it sounds pretty cool
But there’s just one thing
That I gotta tell you

[Chorus (2x)]
You’re something like the sky
You always hold my view
If I could call you anything
I’d call you Sugar Moon

[Bridge (2x)]
It doesn’t matter where we go
It doesn’t matter what we do
If you’re standing in the room
Then I’m staring at you

[Chorus]
You’re something like the sky
You always hold my view
If I could call you anything
I’d call you Sugar Moon

You’re something like the sky
You always hold my view
If I could call you anything
I’d call you Sugar Moon

It doesn’t matter where we go
It doesn’t matter what we do
If I could call you anything
I’d call you Sugar Moon
