about

A collection of songs, in diverse styles such as Latin, World, New Age, Pop, Middle Eastern and a little Rock. The music depicts the soul's desire to transcend the limits of the material world and to soar in the spiritual realm. This album reflects a wider ranger of my musical influences and includes original lyrics for most of the songs.

Track Name: Amame
O Son of Being! Love Me, that I may love thee. If thou lovest Me not, My love can in no wise reach thee. Know this, O servant! -Baha'u'llah, Arabic Hidden Words, #5.
Track Name: Eternal Beloved
Alone in the darkness of desolation
Where is the light of Thy love
My longing hands are lifted to heaven
Raise me up to the heavens above

O My beloved, my desire
O spirit of the worlds
The warmth of your love is wind to my fire
A priceless gift, a precious pearl

Consumed in the fire of separation
Send down the rain of thy grace
Awaiting the breezes of confirmation
Anticipating that wondrous place

O my beloved, my desire
O spirit of the worlds
Thy presence lifts me higher and higher
A priceless gift, a precious pearl
Track Name: My Adored One
Verse 1
I set my face towards Thee
Striving for my (some) sanity
Deprive me not of drawing near to Thee
I'm Craving for your mercy

Chorus
Thy wish is my desire
Thy pleasure my delight
Thy love my aim, Thy face my goal
Bring me out of darkness, into the light x2

Verse 2
My gaze is fixed on you love
Forgive me for turning away
You're an angel from above
There's no limit to what faith can do

Bridge
My Adored One, My King, My Desire
How can I voice my thanks to Thee
My Adored One, My King, My Desire
Track Name: Edge of Forever
The passions of life taunt every move
Trying to resist the waves of desire
The soul is called to a mystical realm
Striving to soar to a higher plane

Chorus
Feel the flame
Drawing you into the edge of forever
It calls your name
Raising you up from this mortal world

Like a vapour in a desert
This world is so fleeting
The realm of eternity is everlasting

Feel the eternal
Drawing you into the edge of forever
It calls your name
Raising you up from this mortal world

Bridge
My spirit calls to me
An island of peace in the madness of life

The passions of life taunt every move
Trying to resist the waves of desire
Feel the flame
Drawing you into the edge of forever
It calls your name
Raising you up from this mortal world
Track Name: Listen
Verse 1 Listen to my voice
I have made the choice
To open my heart
To share just how I feel
My heart has been set aflame
Your guidance helps me gain
The knowledge that draws me close to you

Chorus 1:
You set me free
You help me see who i really am
I want to be that person you see
When you treasure me
Drawing me in This force from within,
Awakening me
Bringing new life to my soul
So that I can see
Listen to how I feel
I’m just telling you how I feel

Verse 2
You know my soul, (You know my soul) echo
Guiding my role in this fleeting world
Setting me aglow (setting me aglow) echo

Chorus 2
You set me free
You help me see who i really am
I want to be that person you see
How you treasure me!
Drawing me in
This force from within,
Awakening me
Bringing new life to my soul
So that I can see
Listen to how I feel
I’m just telling you how I feel

Somehow I know when you’re near You take away my fears Accept me for who I am Helping me to be all I can
I’m just telling you how I feel
I want you to know it’s real

Verse1:
You've been gone so long
I wish I were strong
Never imagined how I'd feel
This broken heart needs time to heal

Knowing you're so far
I treasure who you are
A million memories flood my mind
A precious love most will never find

Chorus:
I will always remember you
No one knows you like I do
I will forever remember you
And how Love came shining through

Verse 3:
Can't believe it's true
No one cares the way you do
Awakening me so that I can see
Showing me how its meant to be

Chorus:
I will always remember you
It's amazing what love can do
I will forever remember you

Bridge:
I sacrifice so you can go
There's something that you ought to know
That I miss you, miss you

I will always remember you
It's amazing what love can do
I will forever you
You know what I'm going through (prolongued)

How I miss you
How I miss you
How.... I miss you

I can feel you next to me
There's no place I'd rather be
Though you're so far away
You always know what to say

Chorus
You'll always be by my side
My loving, enduring guide
You'll always be there for me
By my side for eternity

Verse 2
I know you're always there
Showing me how much you care
When i doubt that you'll be there
Its more than my heart can bare

Chorus
You'll always be by my side
My loving, enduring guide
You'll always be there for me
Here now and will always be

Bridge
You'll always be by my side
Wiping tears I cry
When it seems like no one cares
You are there with every prayer

Chorus
You'll always be by my side
My loving, enduring guide
You'll always be there for me
By my side for eternity
Track Name: A Thought of Peace
When a thought of war comes, oppose it by a stronger thought of peace. A thought of hatred must be destroyed by a more powerful thought of love.

(Abdu'l-Baha, Paris Talks, p. 29)
Track Name: Persecution
Persecution

They dedicated their lives to a noble purpose
Innocent victims, Imprisoned for their beliefs
Their suffering knew no bounds
Only comforted by prayerful sounds

Their children suffer the same fate
Subjected to an endless hate
Denied basic human rights
Yet guided by a greater light

Why do you think you can stop the world from knowing
Prevent the truth from showing
You can't block the sun from shining

Pressured to recant their faith
Their Holy Places destroyed,
Their graves unearthed, no place to bury their dead
Denied the right for education
Riddled with false accusations

Why do you think you can stop the world from knowing
Prevent the truth from showing
You can't block the sun from shining

You can burn their homes but not their spirits
Seize their land but not their souls

Why do you think you can stop the world from knowing
Prevent the truth from showing
You can't block the sun from shining

Why do you think you can block the sun
You can't stop us from shining
Seize our land but not our souls

Why.... do you think you can stop the world from knowing
Prevent the truth from showing
