I CAUGHT THE DARKNESS by Daniel Malka

She said just drink it up

 

I caught the darkness, it was drinking from your cup
I caught the darkness drinking from your cup
I said is this contagious?
You said just drink it up.

I said is this contagious
She said just drink it up
I got no future,
I know my days are few
The presence not the pleasant
Just a lot of things to do
I thought the past would last me
But the darkness got that too

I shoulda seen it coming
It was right behind your eyes
You were young ant it was summer
I just had to take a dive
When I knew was easy, the darkness was the price.
I don’t smoke no cigarette, I don’t drink no alcohol
I ain’t had much loving yet
But that’s always been your call
Hey I don’t miss it baby
I got no taste for anything at all

I used to love the rainbow
And I used to love the view
Another early morning, I’d pretend that it was you
But I caught the darkness baby
And I got it worse than you

I caught the darkness, it was drinking from your cup
I caught the darkness drinking from your cup
I said is this contagious?
You said just drink it up

I WAITED ALONE TOGETHER by Daniel Malka

Some mornings it’s you

Some mornings
It’s you

Others
It’s Pablo

Some evenings
It’s  me

Others
It’s a hobo

Sometimes it’s your smiles
Others our tears

Sometimes it’s lies
Others betrayal

Sometimes it’s forgiveness
Others the past

Sometimes it’s my shadow
Others ours

But the lovers are gone

The lovers are gone
So is the rain and the snow

But not the light

Not the light

And I waited
I waited for the truth

But I waited
I waited for the truth

I waited alone

The truth came alone

I waited together

Your lies came alone

so

I waited alone together

My dreams came together

ON MY WAY ALONE TOGETHER by Daniel Malka

Amongst the voices of the sleeping streets
Destiny whispered in my ear
The best is yet to come
I answered softly
I’m ready whenever you are

 


STAND ALONE TOGETHER BY DANIEL MALKA

We stood tall
We stood high

We stood down
We stood low

We looked up
We looked down

We looked close
We looked far

We looked alone
We looked together

We talked alone
We talked together

We laughed alone
We weeped together

We cried alone
We smiled together

We slept alone
We slept together

We loved alone
We loved together

We flew alone
We flew together

We felt alone
We felt together

I stood tall
I stood high

I stood wet
I stood dry

I stood weak
I stood strong

I stood alone
I stood together

I stayed alone
I stayed together

In time
in distance

All remains alone together


LIGHT ALONE TOGETHER By Daniel Malka

While some sit alone
Others celebrate together

Some carry on alone
Others carry on together

But the hobo
The forgotten
The man with his two bags
One full of empty memories

The other filled with indifference

The old man is waiting
Accompanied by a light
Shining on him
Shining from him

But the truth

The truth is
That without the judgment of other men

We all carry a light
Even in our darkest moments

A light

That light

The light
So often forgotten
So often muted
By the shadows of inhuman also human selfishness

The light
That keeps us alone

The light
That keeps us all together

The light
That I have and will follow
Alone together
