CANDLE DANCE

(A song for my father) 

HERE’S A DANCE THAT I DO
IT’S MY TRIBUTE TO YOU
TO PAY HOMAGE TO ROLES THAT YOU PLAYED
I HAVE LIVED AS YOU TAUGHT
HEAR YOUR VOICE IN MY THOUGHTS
LIVING LIFE TO THE BEST THAT I CAN
 
THROUGH YOUR COURAGE I’VE FOUND
MY EXISTANCE’S TO COUNT
THERE’S A PURPOSE OF ME BEING HERE
 
NEVER DID COMPROMISE
YOUR AMBITIONS REALIZED
ARE THE REASONS I HOLD YOU SO DEAR
 
COME BEHOLD
THIS CANDLE DANCE
IS JUST MY TRIBUTE TO YOU
 
I’LL UNFOLD
MY CANDLE DANCE
IT’S THE LEAST I CAN DO FOR YOU
 
LIKE A CANDLE IN THE DARK
YOU STOOD OUT AND LEFT YOUR MARK
A DISTINCTIVE WAY OF LIVING LIFE
 
THOUGH TO SOME YOU ARE GONE
BUT YOUR PASSION LIVES ON
IT’S AS SACRED AS BEING ALIVE
 
SOLO, REPEAT CHORUS
 
TO YOU WHO HAD SO MUCH WISDON AND LIBERTY
I SALUTE THE LIFE YOU’VE LIVED AND THE SACRIFICES YOU’VE MADE
THIS IS JUST A TOKEN OF MY APPRECIATION
I HOPE YOU CAN SEE ME, CAN YOU HEAR ME…?
THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

I'm really excited about this new collection of songs in a new genre "Islamic Hymns". I'm co-writing & co-producing it with George Landress with backing vocal arrangement by Michael Mishaw. The music borrows from classical music with lots of choral arrangements. The lyrics is in English and Islamic in content.
