Diamonize

(Music and Lyrics by Devin Moreno)

One fateful night,
I came through
Down to that café
Just to play my tunes
Voices in the air
I see your slick dark hair
Baby you dropped me with that one sharp stare

Speak to me
As sweet as you do
I was paralyzed
By those blue
Blue Diamonize

Been stuck in a daze and it won’t go away
So I try to quench that thirst, now
Now, every day
Now will you be there?
Now will you be there?

Speak to me
As sweet as you do
I was paralyzed
By those blue
Diamonize

Will you be there?
Will you be there?
Will you be there?
Are you still there?

Speak to me
As sweet as you do
I was paralyzed
Baby mesmerized
By those blue
Blue Diamonize

I Know That You Know

(Music and Lyrics by Nehal Abuelata)

I’m never gonna be
Like the other gals’, the other gals’
I’m never always going to smile
Most of the time
Most of the time
I’ll try my best to try
When I think I can’t anymore
I’ll try my best to try
When I feel like walking out the door

I know that you know
How it feels, how it feels
I know that you know
How it feels,
I know that you know,
How it feels, how it feels
I know that you know, oh

I’m never going to be
Like your other friends
Your other friends
I’m never always gonna know
What to say at the right, time
But at least I am warning you
A little ahead of the troubled hours
So you can run the other way
Or look at me and say it’s fine

I know that you know
How it feels, how it feels
I know that you know
How it feels,
I know that you know
How it feels

I’m always going to be
A little manic
Can you get used to it?
I’m always gonna wonder why
I’d lost my faith and my will to fight
But what you can do when I,
Lose myself in my head is smile
Oh, Smile
Ooo…

Is It The World?

(Music by Devin Moreno and Lyrics by Nehal Abuelata)

I’m never gonna be
Started this
Beautiful day
With a fat grin on my face
High above
The mountains skylines
Past the blue seas’ disguise I found,
Indigo clouds

Is it the World? Is it the World?
Is it the World? Is it the World?
Is it the World?

They know
Exactly how far they can go before
Before I reach my lowest low
Before
I beg of them
To dissolve
Oh

Is it the World? Is it the World?
Is it the World? Is it the World?
Is it the World? Is it the World?
Is it the World? Is it the World?
Is it the World?

You keep asking yourself
“How long will this last?”
You’re preparing yourself
For the longest ride
You keep asking yourself
“How long will this last?”
You’re preparing yourself
For the longest ride

Bipolar or not
This roller coaster’s set in motion
Oh
Bipolar or not
I ain’t tasting none of your potion
No,
The day went on
I smiled, I cried, and I argued
And the sun seemed to laugh at the sight of me
Spinning, confused

Is it the World? Is it the World?
Is it the World? Is it the World?
Is it the World? Is it the World?
Is it the World? Is it the World?
Is it the World? Is it the World?

Mon pays (My Country)

(Music and Lyrics by Nehal Abuelata)

Je suis née dans un pays qui ne me comprend pas
J’ai vécu dans une ville qui ne me reconnaît pas
J’ai appris à vivre une existence pleine de choix
Et pourtant aujourd’hui, je m’sens enfin, chez moi

Dans mon âme j’ai longtemps cherché, la liberté
Et c’est avec le temps que j’ai compris, que j’ai compris
Que le chez soi n’est pas un lieu, mais que c’est un choix
Et que pour vivre heureux, il faut savoir oser.

Lalalala…

J’ai grandi dans un pays qui n’était pas le mien,
J’ai appris à accepter ce que je n’ pouvais changer, changer
Je n’ai aucune rancune envers ces injustices,
J’ai simplement l’intention de chanter, de chanter

Lalalala…

On ne vit qu’une fois,
Faites de l’amour la loi,
Car, on ne vit qu’une fois,
Faites de l’amour la loi,

J’ai vécu dans un continent éloigné du mien,
Rencontré des gens qui ont changé ma vie, ma vie
Avec toutes ces âmes j’ai su créer un lien,
Qui m’a fait réaliser qui je suis,

Lalalala

On ne vit qu’une fois,
Faites de l’amour la loi,
On ne vit qu’une fois,
Faites de l’amour la loi.

Guilty Of

(Music and Lyrics by Nehal Abuelata)

I was looking for my way back home
When you found me on the side of the road
I was looking for a chance to say
Well, all I want to hear is “please stay”

Can you tell me, oh can you tell me
How to make things right?
Can you tell me, oh can you tell
What’s to expect on the other side?
What’s to expect on the other side?

I kept on walking though you said, “Please wait.”
Hoping you’d find my hand and say,

You are guilty of
Of running away
You are guilty of
Of running away
You are guilty of
Of running away
Guilty of
Of running away

Calmly you wrapped your arms, around me
And, and lovingly, you held my face, in your hands
Ooo to say,

You are guilty of
of running away
of running away
Guilty of
Of running, of running
Guilty of
Of running away
Guilty of
Of running away

When I finally made it home
And prepared to apologize
You quietly sat by me to say, oh
“You can run as long as it’s by my side”

Can you tell me, oh, can you tell me
How to make things right?
Can you tell me, oh, can you tell me
What’s to expect on the other side?
What’s to expect on the other side?

Guilty of…
Oh
Guilty of
Of running away, of running away
Guilty of,
Of running away

Can you tell me, oh, can you tell me
How to make things right?
Can you tell me, oh, can you tell me
what’s to expect on the other side
what’s to expect on the other side

Can you tell me, oh, can you tell me
How to make things right?
Can you tell me, oh, can you tell me
What’s to expect on the other side
What’s to expect on the other side
What’s to expect on, the other side

Fading

Fading
(Music by Devin Moreno and Lyrics by Nehal Abuelata)

I, see you fading away
I, I see you fading away

Don’t you think I am able,
To see you standing there
Mocking my seemingly naïve ways
From your ivory tower
You appear to have it all,
So together

I, I see you fading away, away, away, away
I, I see you fading away, away, away, away

How dare you assume
That you know exactly where I’ve been?
And how I got
To where I now am?
Do you,
Do you really, care
Anyway, anyway?

I, See you fading away
Ohh
I, see you fading

All I had for you
Was a fistful of solidarity
But you made it quite clear
You had no interest in my empathy
So this is to say
That you are now erased
From my grander plans

Ohh…

I, see you fading
See you fading
I, see you fading
See you fading, away

Surrounded By

Surrounded By
(Music by Devin Moreno and Lyrics by Nehal Abuelata)

Surrounded by
Surrounded by
A silent tune that I
I’d been hearing for so long
I’d been hearing all along

Surrounded by
Friends I’d never met before
Surrounded by
Words scattered on the floor
I’d been reading for so long
I’d been reading all along

Ooo ooo

And there won’t be
Anybody else to cease this
To cease this, to cease this
Opportunity

And there won’t be
Anybody else to witness
To witness, to witness
What you see

And there won’t be
Anybody else to cease this
To cease this, to cease this
Opportunity

Surrounded by
A warmth I recognize
Surrounded by
These unfamiliar eyes
I’d been seeing for so long
I’d been seeing all along

Surrounded by
Surrounded by
A silent tune that I
I’d been hearing for so long
I’d been hearing all along
A silent tune that I
A silent tune that I’d been hearing, all along.

Don’t Care

(Music by Devin Moreno and Lyrics by Nehal Abuelata)

My back
Is against the wall
You leave
You leave me no choice, no choice, no choice

I, don’t care how you feel

Barking, screaming, begging
Barking, screaming, begging
Barking, screaming, begging
Don’t know what you came in for

Barking, screaming, begging
Barking, screaming, begging
Barking, screaming, begging
Don’t know what you came in for

I, don’t care how you feel
[What was that]
I, don’t care how you feel
[Alright]

Keep your pretty face
Turned the other way
As we carve a sweeter path
Much greater than yesterday
Keep your pretty face
Turned the other way
As we carve a sweeter path
Much greater than yesterday

I, don’t care how you feel
No, no, no…
I, don’t care how you feel

Ooo…

I, don’t care how you feel

Not Enough

(Music and Lyrics by Nehal Abuelata)

Not enough space, between the lines
So many, guilty feelings we hide
You wake up in the morning
With a bright future in sight
And then you close your eyes
On a regretful night
On a regretful night

The night
The night you’ve seen your dreams
The night you’ve seen your dreams,
Walking away, Walking Away

Too many bricks
Making up your wall
And not enough attention
To break them all
Too many men and women
Laying on the floor
And not enough care
To build them a home
Build them a home

A home
A home where they can live
A home where they can live
As themselves
Build them a home, build them a home
Build them a home

Not enough breaths,
Between our words
And far too many changes
That won’t occur
I know you’re getting tired
Of the long term plans
In a city with a fire
Burning under the land
Burning under the land

The land
The land we, the land we walk on
The land we walk on
Oh so blindly
So blindly
So blindly

The land we walk on, blindly
Is the land that never ceases to give, to give
While some never really seem to stop taking from her,
Ruthlessly, ruthlessly

But they’ll never know
They will never know
They will never know
Peace

While those with nothing
Find a way to
Release all the loving in their hearts
To her
She hears, she hears
She hears the sound
Of a change, approaching
While the oblivious ones,
Keep on taking,
They keep on taking

But they’ll never know
They will never know
They will never know
Peace

They will never know
They will never know
They will never know
Peace

They will never never…
Never…
Know, peace
They will never never….
Never…
They will never know
They will never know
Peace

The Truth

(Music by Devin Moreno and Lyrics by Nehal Abuelata)

The Truth about life is,
That there ain’t no certainty to it
The lies rest in a quiet place
As you search for an ounce of sanity

The truth about life is,
She’s your best friend, your worst enemy,
She lifts your spirits up,
And let’s you down just as easily

Oh…

The truth about life is,
You make it as sweet as your vision allows
The days may pass
But you gotta keep in mind
That the fuel will burn out

The truth about life is,
That there ain’t no certainty to it
The lies rest in a quiet place
As you search for an ounce of sanity
Oh…

The truth about life is,
That you can cut its corners
And you can cut it short,
But it’ll, but it’ll, but it’ll
It’ll never cut you slack

The truth about life is,
She’s your best friend, your worst enemy,
She lifts your spirits up,
And let’s you down just as easily
Oh…

No Hay Coincidencias

(Music by Devin Moreno and Lyrics by Nehal Abuelata)

Nos encontramos
Una dulce noche de abril
Inmediatamente, entendimos
Que habiamos descubierto una poderosa amistad
Que nos cambió

No hay, coincidencias
No hay, coincidencias

Y no importa el camino que eliges
Sin dudas vas a llegar
Vas a llegar a tu destino
A tu destino con éxito

No hay, coincidencias, no hay
No hay, coincidencias

Lai, lai, lai…

Y ahora mi destino esta contigo
Mis palabras y canciones nuevas
Nacieron porque tu me inspiras
Como nadie me inspira

No hay, coincidencias, no hay
No hay, coincidencias, no hay
No hay, coincidencias
No hay, coincidencias
No hay, coincidencias
En esta vida

Tiny Men

(Music by Devin Moreno and Lyrics by Nehal Abuelata)

Tiny men with swords
Tiny men with swords
Tiny men with swords
Tiny men with swords

With their big egos
And their tiny eyes
They are the

Tiny men with swords
Tiny men with swords
Tiny men with swords
Tiny men with swords

With their big egos
And their left handedness
They, they walk around
With their tiny little heads
They are the

Tiny men with swords
Tiny men with swords
Tiny men with swords
Tiny men with swords

Tiny, tiny, tiny, tiny….

Tiny men with swords
Tiny men with swords
Tiny men with swords
Tiny men with swords

Tiny men with swords
