Align:    
  • Back in school was when we'd first got acquainted
  • Crossed paths - nearly fainted
  • When you told me that your name was
  • Layla
  • Hair darker than the night's sky
  • waylak!
  • Majnoon what a crazy tale
  • I too often poeticized your eyes
  • To every passer by
  • Till it came back to haunt me
  • As your dad denied
  • Your hand in mine ñ marriage I was sad to find
  • Wasnt written for us in the grand design
  • Set out for Mecca on Hajj
  • As I was really on Edge
  • But no matter how hard I tried
  • I couldnt sever our ties
  • I pledged to your heart
  • That we would never be apart
  • As children
  • But your father had other plans
  • To find you another man
  • Until then
  • You were on house arrest
  • Sealed in
  • And I couldnt bare the pain
  • Crying a tear’s refrain
  • Insane
  • Praying that Id be killed then
  • I skipped town shameful
  • Wondering what our world came to
  • Chorus:
  • The remorse of Old ways
  • Divorced of Old times
  • The source of Old prose and…
  • (It Blows My Miiiiiind)
  • Just how strong the memories remain
  • In a reverie of pain
  • Insane - Im not fine...
  • Im yours, however distant you may be!
  • Intertwined - forever reminded you’re my lady
  • (It Blows My Miiiiiind)
  • There blows no wind but wafts your scent
  • And sings no bird but calls your name
  • Star-crossed Lament
  • Verse 2:
  • Wandering through the wilderness
  • Agony filled & lonely
  • Pondering how I failed
  • Knowing nobody could console me
  • Only the homey Nawfal
  • Had cared enough to explore
  • Yet when he couldnt succeed
  • He just took your daddy to war
  • And demanded we be united
  • But as your clan was defeated
  • The same excuse as before is what
  • Your father slowly repeated
  • I’d ruined your reputation
  • With all of my proclamations
  • He’d rather kill you than see us together
  • A complication to say the least
  • I conceded
  • To the desert retreated
  • Wrote a rhyme in the sand for you
  • Praying that you could read it
  • Time passed & eventually you would come to be greeted
  • By many a suitor
  • Intent on sweeping you off your feet - When it happened
  • Couldn’t believe it
  • You were somebody’s wife?
  • Was it really my fate to live such a pitiful life?
  • The aches cut like a knife as my miserable heart burned
  • To all that trouble & strife ñ I vowed to never return
  • A lesson learned
  • Chorus:
  • The remorse of Old ways
  • Divorced of Old times
  • The source of Old prose and…
  • (It Blows My Miiiiiind)
  • Just how strong the memories remain
  • In a reverie of pain
  • Insane - Im not fine...
  • Im yours, however distant you may be!
  • Intertwined - forever reminded you’re my lady
  • (It Blows My Miiiiiind)
  • There blows no wind but wafts your scent
  • And sings no bird but calls your name
  • Star-crossed Lament
  • Verse 3:
  • Brainsick they would call me
  • Demented smitten & mad
  • And this took a toll on Baba’s health
  • Whoa it was getting bad
  • See I was his only son
  • And so I was all that he had
  • He died of a broken heart
  • I knew that it made you sad
  • You sent me a note condoling me
  • Said you were thinking of me
  • Then when my mother passed
  • You had even said you still loved me
  • Given that bitter absences made our hearts fonder
  • I had to come back to see ñ I couldn’t take it much longer
  • However the irony was your husband would die too
  • Therefore our traditions stated I would be without you
  • For not one - but two
  • Years to be left grieving
  • Naive - in a spider love (& in spite of)
  • Was this tangled web we were weaving
  • My Karma just getting even
  • For living life depraved?
  • Why was it such a sin to have given all that I gave?
  • For now I lie at your grave
  • And I’m ready to die a whaler
  • Thus ends the tale of
  • Majnoon Layla
  • Chorus:
  • The remorse of Old ways
  • Divorced of Old times
  • The source of Old prose and…
  • (It Blows My Miiiiiind)
  • Just how strong the memories remain
  • In a reverie of pain
  • Insane - Im not fine...
  • Im yours, however distant you may be!
  • Intertwined - forever reminded you’re my lady
  • (It Blows My Miiiiiind)
  • There blows no wind but wafts your scent
  • And sings no bird but calls your name
  • Star-crossed Lament
