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

Goddess (Song Lyrics + Song)

[Guitar Intro]

[Verse 1]

I fell in love with you
Under the stars
There’s something ‘bout the way
You move in the dark

The way you walk
Is a new form of art
I think my heart
Is beating off the charts

I swear to heaven
That you are divine
I’d think the same
Even if you weren’t mine

The way you look
Just breaks up mind
If you were a flower
You’d bloom for all time

[Chorus]

When you fall
You fall just like a goddess
When you say you have flaws
I think that you’re flawless

There’s nothing about you
That wouldn’t be perfect
Your imperfections
I don’t even notice

When you fall
You fall just like a goddess
When you say you have flaws
I think that you’re flawless

There’s nothing about you
That wouldn’t be perfect
Your imperfections
Don’t come to the surface

[Bridge]

You’re like a dream
That walks in the world
You’re like a chord
That nobody’s heard
If you aren’t rare
Then rare is not there
If you aren’t rare
Then nothing is, dear

You’re like a dream
That walks in the world
You’re like a song
That nobody’s heard
If you aren’t rare
Then rare is not there
If you are not rare
Then nothing is here

[Piano solo]

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

[Guitar Solo]

What Is Poetry Anyway?

Forget the sensuous rhythms, the candlelit flows
The flame-drenched language
                                and the exaggerated escapades

Forget the masterful forms, the dreamy refrains
The count of lines and stanzas
                      and the elaborate rhyming schemes

Forget the scathing irony, the fanciful similes
The absolutely astonishing alliteration
                         and the mind-blowing metaphors

Forget all that glitter and just keep the gold
        A poem isn’t a poem
                                                Unless it’s about you

_________________________________________________________

Here’s also the first version of this poem, which I’ve been working on for too long.

A poem is not a poem
On the page
Unless it’s about you

Though it may feel and look
Like some poetry
It’s not the same

Every word decays
In my candlelit mind
Unless it’s about you

Often lines and stanzas
Go astray, too, when
A poem is not a poem

Because there is no prose
Or even rhyme
Unless it’s about you

And in my heart and
On the page
A poem is not a poem
Unless it’s about you

 

Universal Song

By Benjamin Grossman & Ace

Push and pull
Empty and full
Ebb and flow
Learn and know

A balance of inwardness
And outwardness
I wish I could explain
The twists and turns of this lane

Dark and light
Day and night
Observing and living
Receiving and giving

There’s a dream to be at peace
There’s a knowing it’s within range
With a smile and a breath of release
This feeling is a message no longer strange

High (Song Lyrics + Song)

[Verse 1]
I’m not that high
I’m not that cut and dry
But I don’t like grey
That’s all I wanted to say

[Chorus]
I know that everything you are
Is what I need
And everything you are
Is what I dreamed
So every time you say that you love me
I fall a little deeper in love, it’s true
It’s true, I fall a little deeper in love with you

[Verse 2]
You look so high
Your smile could reach the sky
You don’t like grey
That’s all you needed to say

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
We’re going around in circles every day
But it doesn’t have to be this way
If all we want to do is run and play
Then we should, then we should

I keep looking into your eyes and seeing the sky
I keep looking into your eyes and wanting to fly
I keep looking into your eyes and feeling so high
I keep looking into your eyes and, baby, I’m high

[Chorus]

[Bridge 2]
You make me so high
You make me so high
I’ve learned how to fly
I’ve learned how to fly

[Chorus]
I know that everything you are
Is what I need
And everything you are
Is what I dreamed
So every time you say that you love me
I fall a little deeper in love, it’s true

I think I’m gonna stay in love with you
