about

Conceived in my home in the summer of 2015, these songs portray a period where I refound my creativity and basically had a lot of fun! I made these songs all by myself, without studio equipment.
My laptop got stolen the Xmas after that, so I couldn't refine the productions the way I envisioned. That's fine, because the songs are good as is.
I'm hoping you like them as much as I do :)

Track Name: Get Into Your Car And Drive
chorus:
I'm alive
I wanna take your car and drive
maybe I feel bad
remember the things so strong and sad
you know how I forget the past
to get in your car and drive

I'm content
you are my only friend
maybe I've been sad
give me the feeling I have had
I want the song of love too bad
to get this far alive

verse:
you know nothing about my situation clearly you don't

think of all the times I moved from one place to one beyond

it started in Syria then on to Jordan and to Egypt
from Egypt to Sudan is dangerous but it's quite a trip
I went on foot, by car, on horseback but never a train
and the boat leaving from Lybia I'll never take again


bridge:
I saw you staring to the wall
in front of me
I know it's hard to look at me, you see
but the things inside of me are trying to be free
I know it's hard to look at me, you see
but the things inside of me are trying to be me

<chorus>:

hmmm hmmm

verse:
you know nothing about my situation clearly you don't
not the hole in my heart nor my freedom from want
please be patient when you wanna be helping me
there's things that I've seen that transcend the obscene
I will never be part of your scenery
I will never be part of your scenery

<bridge>:

you know nothing about my situation clearly you don't
Track Name: I Love Her All The World
verse:
One thing I can tell about her
How she wants to make me pray
I don't know much about her
But she looks so sweet today

chorus:
When she combs her hair
In the mirror all night long
And I can only stare
This is where I do belong

verse:
I don't know a thing about her
But I know this much is true
Love her all the world, without her
Wouldn't know just what to do

<chorus>

bridge:
I love her all the world
4x

verse:
One thing I can tell about her
Isn't she the lovely one
Get that dirt off your shoulder ‘cause
Heaven says that I’m the one

<chorus>
<bridge>
Track Name: The Lonely One
chorus:
I am lonely now, maybe tomorrow
All I wanted to do was have some fun
Maybe if I’ll dance there’ll be no more sorrow
Then I will not be the lonely one

verse:
If by chance you are a savior
And you won’t become anulled
Why you're doing me a favor?
When you're telling me to blame her

verse:
Don’t you tell me to come and shame her
Don’t you tell me to be strong
Why you're doing me a favor?
Why you're doing me this favor?

pre-chorus:
I compromised all that I said
And anyways no one really cared
Track Name: Up Up Away
You took on too much work
It is no surprise
I can't see the sparkle
Shining in your eyes

Up up away and I'll sing you a song
No one knows the road
Up up away and I'll bring you along
Come and grab your coat

Who don't see that picture
Coming from the sky
She can't see no reason
Why to look up high

Up up away and I'll sing you a song
Humming all the time
Up up away and just sing along
If you don't know the words just mime

outro:
If you don't know the words
You don't know the words
If you don't know the words
just mime
Track Name: Won't You Come Over
Won't you come over and stay
This time I realize I can't make it alone today
Won't you come over and stay
Now I know that it's you I want for ever now

Please don't make wait much longer
Because this love of mine is getting stronger
Please won't you tell me just how I feel
Because this love of mine is getting real
Please won't you make me love you
Now that I'm only thinking of you

Since the day that I met you
You haven't been out of my mind
Girl I just can't forget you
A love like mine is hard to find
