SUNFLOWER (SONG LYRICS)

You are a decoration of bright stars
Shining through a diamond skin
Yes, you are beaming right on my face
Like the gentle orange moon
Oh! My love, you are beaming on my face

Your voice is sweeter than the song I sing
And your touches are cold like spring
Yes, you are beaming right on my face
Like rainbows in summertime
Oh! My love, you are beaming on my face

Sunflower, the way you spread your smile
Together let’s tour an endless mile
Stay with me, don’t walk away tonight
Stay with me, go nowhere my dynamite

No other takes me to the tide
Makes me go blind
Makes me loose my mind
I swear you take me to the tide
Make me go blind
Make me loose my mind

I don’t know how to skydive (never tried)
But I’ll fall from a hundred thousand feet (not scared)
I’m falling, baby I’m falling for you
Can’t hold on to the pressure, you’re my treasure
I’m falling, baby I’m falling for you!

Sunflower, the way you spread your smile
Together let’s tour an endless mile
Stay with me, don’t walk away tonight
Stay with me, go nowhere my dynamite

No other takes me to the tide
Makes me go blind
Makes me loose my mind
I swear you take me to the tide
Make me go blind
Make me loose my mind.

 

CHIM

I buried myself in the water
For you to take over
Buried my dreams and knowings
For you to lead me to my destiny
Yes, I can not go further on my own
I had to blind my eyes
Trusting your guidance
For with you
I am sure to conquer

Through the angry storm
Through the hills and valleys
Through the forest full of wild lives
The desert of rolling sands
And the air full of poisonous elements

Take me as I follow step after step
Teach me everything I should know
For the knowledge of man is deceiving
As the society survives on institutions of lies

I have set myself ablaze
To be reborn as you ever wished
Be my sun, my moon and stars
Everything that directs my path
For I can’t trust humans anymore
Remain with me till I finally wake up

Sorry for all the times I tried to do things myself
For all the times I called myself captain, pilot, driver
Sorry for all the times I didn’t care to pray
And all the things I have done wrong
Take me and lead me to my destiny

Through the angry storm
Through the hills and valleys
Through the forest full of wild lives
The desert of rolling sands
And the air full of poisonous elements;

 

DEAR JADE III

What’s diamond can never try to decay
What’s golden can never try to rust
And so relationship that is pure like ours
Can never be broken or left to die
No matter how hard to let go_ we try

A small spark of flame can burn bush
And that little fire is your magical voice
When you say “Go away!” but still kiss me
“I’m moving on!” yet you come back to me
“I hate you!” deep down you still love me
Unfriend me and still reaccept my request

You are dramatic as much as I am poetic
Charming like a river goddess in ambiance
Silly, crazy and you love to say nonsense
Yet, you have a soul that’s great and classic

A million memories and each is made of rose
That smile, that laughter and naughtiness
The music, the poetry and the romance
Keeps driving year into year and years
Knowing someday our paths would cross

As I send you fresh flowers from West Africa
I wait for twinkles of your kisses on the sky
I will travel an endless mile to huge your body
And if God approves, you will have my baby
For you are loving, caring, honest and smart
Yes, you are strong. I’m wrong and a flirt

Were we not lovers before we lost our ways
Found our ways, lost our ways to find it again?
Were we not a blend of two ignorant geniuses
Before we went apart, came together and again?
Oh! My Jade, we were everything heaven envied
And now we are arousing the jealousy of angels.
