Don’t Forget The Things You Love

Here are the lyrics to a song I wrote in 2015 (hear it in New Songs).  This is my response to the evil perpetrated by the followers and leaders of ISIS, Boko Haram and others.

The song was recorded live in 2016 (Waqidi – vocal and guitar) by engineer Nick Kirby at the Church of Divine Transformation – many thanks to Rev. Chris Johnson and Rev. Sylvia Massy.

Don’t Forget The Things You Love

Verse 1
Life is gold for you and me
Leaves are green that’s plain to see
And when you’re in love it’s your heart that beats
So don’t forget the things you love
Don’t understand what’s all the fuss
All the fighting and mistrust
Seems to me we’d be better off if we only did the things we love

Chorus
If you want to sing a song or dance out on a roof at night
You shouldn’t have to worry bout a smile on your face
It’s the reason we’re here on this place

Verse 2
Some say crimes surround us everywhere
Apostasys common as fridgidaires
But it’s not a crime to have a different point of view
As long as you put love in the things you do
I’m not complaining bout my life
This song’s for others who live in strife
It seems too many want to spoil the news
They don’t put love in the things they do

Chorus
If you want to sing a song or dance out on a roof at night
You shouldn’t have worry bout a smile on your face
It’s the reason where here on this place

Verse 3
For those who say they have the right
Declare a Caliphate by their might
The world would be in a better state
If they only did the things they loved
I’m not afraid to sing this song
To any others who live to harm
In the end you’ll be in a better place if you only did the things you loved

Ending

Life is gold for you and me
Leaves are green that’s plain to see
And when your in love it’s your heart that beats
So don’t forget the things
Don’t forget the friends
And –Don’t forget the Ones
You love
