كل ما اصحي بافضل ثواني منتظر اني الاقي نفسي في سريري في بيتي في مصر

….

و لما باكتشف اني لسه عايش كابوس مش عايز يخلص

بابقي مش عايز اصحي

بس… عشان اسباب تانية (اصحاب و ناس و شغل في المدينة دي) باضطر اصحي..

مش عايز ولا مبسوط اكيد

بس مضطر

….

المهم… باحكي الروتين اليومي ده عشان بدأت احس اني لازم اتصالح مع الكابوس رغم علمي انه كابوس

عشان….

عشان….

عشان خايف اصحي مرة و ماعنديش طاقة أكمل الكابوس


Another GEM of a song and a singer who, covers are lucky to be chosen by her to be sung!

Here’s to Life

No complaints and no regrets
I still believe
in chasing dreams and placing bets
But I have learned
that all you give is all you get
So give it all you got
I had my share
I drank my fill
And even though
I’m satisfied..
I’m hungry still
To see what’s down another road
beyond the hill..
And do it all again..
So here’s to life!…
And all the joy it brings
So here’s to life!…
To dreamers
and their dreams…
Funny, how the time just flies
How love can go from warm hellos
To sad goodbyes
And leave me with the memories
you’ve memorized
To keep your winters warm
For there’s no yes in yesterdays
so who knows what tomorrow brings
or takes away
As long as I’m still in the game
I want to play..
For life, for laughs
for love…
So here’s to life!…
And all the joy it brings…
So here’s to life!…
To dreamers
and their dreams…

May all your storms be weathered

And all that’s good get better
Here’s to life…
Here’s to love…
Here’s to you…
May all your storms be weathered
And all that’s good get better
Here’s to life…
Here’s to love…
Here’s to you…

I stumbled upon this GEM of a song by a GEM of a singer Abbey Lincoln

it makes me cry every single time I listen to it

seems all lyrics online miss a verse:

There’s a natural obligation
to what we fool! and claim
possessing and belonging
to acknowledging a name

here it is complete:

Throw It Away

I think about the life I live
A figure made of clay
And think about the things I lost
The things I gave away
And when I’m in a certain mood
I search the house and look
One night I found these magic words
In a magic book
THROW IT AWAY…
Throw-it away…
Give your life,  Give your love
Each and every day
And keep your hand wide open
Let the sunshine through
‘Cause you can never lose a thing
If it belongs to you
There’s a hand to rock the cradle
And a hand to help us stand
With a gentle kinder motion
As it moves across the land
And the hands unclenched and open
Gifts of life and love it brings
So keep your hand wide open
If you’re needing… anything!
THROW IT AWAY…
Throw-it away…
Give your love, live your life
Each and every day
And, keep your hand wide open
Let the sunshine through
‘Cause you can never lose a thing
If it belongs
to you
There’s a natural obligation
to what we fool! and claim
possessing and belonging to
acknowledging a name
So keep your hand wide open
If you’re needing love today
‘Cause you can’t  lose it
even if you…
Throw it all away…
THROW IT AWAY…
Throw-it away…
Give your love, live your life
Each and every day
And keep your hand wide open
Let the sunshine through
‘Cause you can never lose a thing
If it belongs to you…
‘Cause you can never lose a thing
If it belongs to you
‘Cause you can never lose a thing
If…
it belongs…
to-you…
