الخيال الجوعان

This is an experimental art project based on my poem that was written in the eighties and the lyrics of a song by Hollyn. Therefore, this poem is by no mean a translation to the modern song: Alone.

على الأمواج كسرتُ

سنابل قمحيَ الأشقرْ

و أغصانا من العنبرْ

و أكواما

من الياقوت و المرمرْ

على الأمواج…

ذاك الموج ما أقفرْ

خطانا أصبحت تيهًا

و بيتا خاليا يُقبرْ

فلا ذكرانا تذكرنا

و لا..لا وردة تزهرْ

خيالاتي…

أزكيها..أباركها

فتنمو أكثرَ…أكثرْ

خيالي حقل جوعان

ووهمي عوده الأخضرْ

خيالي جنة في الأرض

لا تعمرْ…

خيالي جذع زيتون

في قيض عمري يزهرْ

و لا يُسقى…و لا يثمرْ

خيالي…

حبة من لؤلؤ تُنثرْ

Lord, I need You like a heartbeat
(Concrete) rock-solid under my feet
And You’re callin’ me, You’re callin’ me up
Oh, ’cause You know me so well
And I can be a little punk sometimes
So don’t leave me, leave me alone
Bust down the door to my heart like it’s Your home
Don’t need no keys
I’m on my knees
Begging You please
I’ve gotta settle this thing once and for all
You got my heart, my soul, You can have it all
I’m on my knees
Beggin’ You please
Beggin’ You please Lord, don’t leave me alone

I said You had me in Your arms but I fell through the grasp
But yep, I had You in my heart but I guess I relapsed
Like I’m livin’ for the wrong reasons, through the seasons
Tryna fall for You but then they put me on blast
It’s like I try to speak my mind because I know that I’m His
And yep I try to speak my mind but it don’t fly with them kids
Man, if I’m not talkin’ bout the newest Nikes or releases
They put the mute on me, I can’t speak about my Jesus?
Like I’m living for Him, I’m slippin to sin
I turn around and make the amends
I try to fit it, I mess it up and stumble again
I’m takin’ this pen
And writing everything so I remember just how sweet that it is
Yeah man, I got issues, I can’t even lie
My only saving grace is knowing I got You inside
I’m done with saving face, I don’t got a thing to hide
So don’t leave me alone, keep coming day and night
Don’t leave me, leave me alone
Bust down the door to my heart, Lord it’s Your home
You don’t need no keys
I’m on my knees
Begging You please
I’ve gotta settle this thing once and for all
You got my heart, my soul, You can have it all
I’m on my knees
Beggin’ You please
Beggin’ You please Lord
I’m on my knees
Beggin’ You please
Beggin’ You please Lord, don’t leave me alone
Don’t leave me alone
