Words & Music by Ala Ghawas

Tycoons have showed me that the world is bound to shame
Naturalization and sequestration are their only triumphs to claim
In a country where government fools and imams tyrannically rule
You sang Mitchell to the moon

Well, I would have dissented but the music in me died
On a skyscraper I was burdened by my need to hide
Just when blood fills the streets, the prisons and the creeks
You swayed to Dylan’s tunes

I have a nephew who taught me to embrace all my wrongs
My niece, she reminds me of you, dreams of Venus in all her songs
While my maps are sacrosanct around teachers I’ve never thanked
You dared Mars to bloom

Glaciers come and go
My terrain is yours to draw
Make it green and blue
And the joy I fantasize
from the love I theorize
is awaiting your hue
Because it’s you
It had to be you…
