"Almaz" as written by and Randy Crawford....
She only smiles, he only tells her
That she's the flowers the wind and spring
In all her splendor, sweetly surrendering
The love that Innocence brings

Almaz, pure and simple,
born in a world where love survives
Now men will want her, cause life don't haunt her
Almaz, you lucky, lucky thing
Now I watch closely, and I watch wholely
I can't imagine love so rare
She's young and tender, but will life bend her
I look around is she everywhere

He throws her kisses, she shares his wishes
I'm sure he's king without a doubt
With love so captive, so solely captive
I ask if I could play the part

    General CommentThis song means a lot to me. I believe the singer is watching a couple in amazement. Almaz has obviously had something bad happen to her in her past, and the singer is astonished that she can still love freely and with all her heart. The singer asks herself is she could play the part of the careless lover if the same past which Almaz had, was hers.

    General CommentCrawford told The Daily Telegraph October 27, 2008 about the inspiration for this ballad. Said Crawford: "These Eritrean refugees knocked on my door. It turned out they had just moved in and wanted to invite their new neighbor to dinner. Of course I went but the African food they served wasn't to my taste." The singer added: "I witnessed this perfect love affair between them, although she was considerably younger than him. This beautiful couple with their baby. As refugees they were looking for 'a world where love survives'."
    The Eritean man asked Crawford to write a song about his wife, whose name was Almaz, which means diamond. She agreed and this song was the result. However, she told The Daily Telegraph that, "when I came to play it to them they had moved again. So as far as I know, they never heard it."

    Randy is viewing the couple in amazement and as she has experienced love and pain and wonders is she ever real, to love without fear is someone who has never been her in love as life and pain re shapes the heart. This is my favourite song and I want played at my funeral. ♢ Almaz ♢
