Highway Lights

On my way to Al Ain
Looking into the rearview
As Dubai fades away

My bag in the back
Listening to a Daughtry track
To help keep me awake

Tell me how to make right
Every wrong turn that I've learned
So this can all end tonight

Highway Lights
Just changed my mind
Well, it's my heart I'll follow this time...

All my Life

All my Life
Life has put my emotions to the test
Every season
As depressing as the next

Whenever a loved one gets hurt
And vanishes into the abyss
I wipe my tears of blood
To be able to reminisce

How mistaken am I?
Not to cherish my forsaken Life
Anyone who's ever stolen my heart has it given back
That's why it's still in my chest

All my Life
Life has put my emotions to the test
From a fresh perspective I look at Life
It reflects me as a dead man

How troubled am I?
As I struggle to reminisce
But how can I?
As I had no happy moments to live...

Bound by Blood

Moon-drunk
I still remember the stars in her eyes
My heart is always out on the hunt
And it does not believe an angel's lies

In simple terms impure
Our so-called love is just for show
There is no well-known cure
Like a blood-filled river it will flow

We were never in love
What foul oath we swore?
We are Bound by Blood
Which boils at the core

I still remember the shine in her eyes
The wetness of her lips
I do not believe an angel's lies
The day I die my heart will be burned to a crisp

Remember we are Bound by Blood
Nothing more...

Desert Sun

I've been loveless in Lahore
And hopeless in Helsinki
Yet I'm not gonna let go
Of my damsel in Dubai

Tattooed poetry on my skin
Nothing could've masked the pain
Each part burned with the addition of sin
Not sure if I'm in love or insane

Because girl I'm tired of being ignored
Is love fairer than war?
This question keeps beating me at the core
With despair my eyes are sore

Now I've been loveless in Lahore
Still I wasn't bound to be dying there
Because I came upon a lore
That said my sweetheart would be residing here

But girl you just won't admit
When we met a fire was lit
Now we both crave for it
With love metal playing in the background with the utmost pitch

And I don't want any more of this
Desert Sun shimmering on your lips
Taking pictures under Burj Khalifa's silhouette
What a summer of bliss

When the Arabian moon shone on your face
I realized in my life there was a misplacement of grace
An awakening occurred of new taste
Next thing I know the veins of our loneliness became interlaced...
