Lost in Translation


My heart hears what your eyes have to say
There’s no need for any explanation
’cause if you put your feelings into words
Things might get lost in translation

Amidst all my insecurities you are
The only safe haven around
In this world full of strangers, fools and foes
Couldn’t be happier it’s you I found

As far as the whole wide world is concerned
Couldn’t care less or give a damn
You are the one who sees through my shell
And loves me for who I am

Never thought I had all this love in me
I Never felt this way before
Don’t know if this is possible but
with every breath I love you more

– Yousuf (2009)

Royally Yours

My love, my soul mate
How sweet, thy scent
Come live in my heart
And pay no rent

No gold, nor money
Can help me survive
It’s thee, my darling
That keeps me alive

For thee, O! honey
I’ll give up my dreams
’tis my goal, my ambition
To make you my queen

– Yousuf Bawany
