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

 

Yin

I’m missing           my yin
No longer am I at peace
Just       i n      p

                             i

                                 e             c

e

        s

Drifting  slowly   away    from    light
Half my soul has                 departed

If yin is    earth     darkness       cold
Why do I feel colder since you left?

Fucked Up (Song Lyrics + Song)

You kinda love me in a fucked-up way
The way you love me I could never stay
I sorta knew that it would go this way
I never really thought you would stay

I’m just a puppet in your master plan
Had me eating out the palm of your hand
I even wanted to be your man
Nobody else could ever understand

You kinda left me in this fucked-up state
Took for granted everything I gave
If it meant something I cannot say
Our love was always doomed for the grave

You kinda want me in this fucked-up way
Even though you have no plans to stay
It’s kinda crazy how it goes this way
You love so much and then it fades away

It’s kinda funny how it goes this way
You love so much and then they never stay
You love so much and then they never stay
You love so much and then they go away

I loved you so much but you did not stay
I loved you so much but you went away
I love you so much but you would not stay
You broke my heart when you left that day

Nobody else should ever feel this pain
Nobody else should ever feel such pain

This song went from a very upbeat sounding song to more of a slow song with only four chords repeating, which reiterates the cycle of loss. It’s interesting to try writing something out of your comfort zone. Sometimes trying a different artistic medium opens your mind up to higher creative endeavors. If you can: try to do something totally different with your next piece. Thanks for reading and listening!
