ـ "... إن فى الإنسان منطقة عجيبة سحيقة لا تصل إليها الفضيلة ولا الرذيلة ، ولا تشع فيها شمس العقل والإرادة ، ولا ينطق لسان المنطق ، ولا تطاع القوانين والأوضاع ، ولا تتداول فيها لغة أو تستخدم كلمة ... إنما هى مملكة نائية عن عالم الألفاظ والمعاني ... كل مافيها شفاف هفاف يأتي بالأعاجيب فى طرفة عين ... يكفي أن ترن فى أرجائها نبرة ، أو تبرق لمحة ، أو ينشر شذا عطر ، حتى يتصاعد من أعماقها فى لحظة من الإحساسات والصور والذكريات ، ما يهز كياننا ويفتح نفوسنا على أشياء لا قبل لنا بوصفها ، ولا بتجسيدها ، ولو لجأ إلى أدق العبارات و أبرع اللغات ... " ـ

توفيق الحكيم

Within man lies a deep wondrous spot, to which neither virtue nor vice can reach. Upon which the sun of reason and will never rises. In which the mouth of logic never speaks, the laws and rules are never obeyed, and not a language is used nor a word is ever spoken.
It is a distant Kingdom, beyond words and meanings. With everything is a sheer murmur offering wonders in a blink. From the depths of which, suffice a single tone or a flash of mind or a scent of a perfum, to allow rise of emotions, pictures and memories, a rising that will shake our being and open ourselves to things we can neither describe nor materialize even if we used the most refined of phrases or the most skillful of languages.

Tawfiq Al-Hakim.

دار جدي - سعاد ماسي

وياريتها كانت فضلت موجودة دار جدي ، ضاعت أيامها للأبد وضاع كل اللى كانوا فيها ......... خسارة

Cliche, Marillion

This is the first song I listened to for Marillion. Apart from the music which I liked very much and used as a ring tone for some time, I liked very much the lyrics, the way this song expresses how someone wants to "Express Love", I find it very lovely, pure and innocent in a way. I too think that when it comes to expressing Love or other important feelings, it should be done in a clear and simple way, no games and no maneuvers, life is too short to play games anyway. And again I Quote D. H. Lawrence "Be still when you have nothing to say; when genuine passion moves you, say what you've got to say, and say it hot". Then again I think , it's not always this simple anyway! .




I've got a reputation of being a man with a gift of words
a romantic poetic type or so they say
but I find it hard to express the way I feel about you
without getting involved with the old cliches.

In the old cliches, it's the old cliches.

This song's begun so many times but never
in a way that you won't consider to be an old cliche.

I want to say that I need you, I miss you when you're away.
And how it seemed like fate - o here we go - the same old cliches.
It's the same old cliches.

It's not that I'm embarrassed or shy, well, you know me too well
but I want to make this song special in a way that you can tell.

That it's solely for you and nobody else
for my best friend, my lover, when I need help - cliche - cliche?

Everything I want to say to you is wrapped up in an old cliche
I'd waited so long to find you, I'd been through the heartbreak and pain,
but of course you already know that cos you've been throught the same.

That's why I'm trying to say with my deepest sincerity
that's why I'm finding it comes down to the basic simplicities
the best way is with an old cliche
it's simply the best way is with an old cliche
always the best way is with an old cliche

I'll leave it to the best way, it's an old cliche

I love you.



You're Gone , Marillion



You're gone as suddenly as you came to me
Like nightfall followed dawn without a day between
You're gone and suddenly I can't see
I'm in the shadow of you
I'm in the shadow of you

I can see you in my mind's rose-tinted eye..
Somewhere you're drifting by
Your heels rolling sparks on the lucky street

While here am I left behind
Stunned and blind
But I can see you from here
I can see you so clear

You are the light
you are the light
You have the day
I have the night
But we have the early hours together

you're gone, and heaven cries
A thunderstorm breaks from the northern sky
chasing you back to the daily grind

You're gone and where am I?
A haunted life
The ghost of your laughter
The half empty glass
The half empty glass

And I wait
till midnight tolls
Two souls almost touching in the dark
I'll be allright

You are the light
You are the light
You have the day I have the night
But we have the early hours
We have the early hours
We have the early hours together

The Day That Never Comes, Metallica




Born to push you around
You better just stay down
You pull away
He hits the flesh
You hit the ground
Mouths so full of lies
Tend to black your eyes
Just keep them closed
Keep praying
Just keep waiting

Waiting for the one
The day that never comes
When you stand up and feel the warmth
but the sunshine never comes
No the sunshine never comes

Push you cross that line
Just stay down this time
Hide in yourself
Crawl in yourself
You'll have your time
God I'll make them pay
Take it back one day
I'll end this day
I'll splatter color on this gray

Waiting for the one
The day that never comes
When you stand up and feel the warmth
but the sunshine never comes
No the sunshine never comes

Love is a four letter word
And never spoken here
Love is a four letter word
Here in this prison
I suffer this no longer
I put it into
This I swear!
This I swear!
The sun will shine
This I swear!
This I swear!
This I swear!

Hurt

A life on hold


Suspending what matters and makes a difference to us till what is not really important happens, that's if it ever happens.
Acting as if we will live forever to do Later what ever we badly want to do, when the right time comes, and the right time never really comes.
Later is always 2 hours after the end of time, we never really reach that Later, and at the end of our time, we suddenly realize what we really missed ... our life.
