Tracklist + Liner Notes

  1. Wherever You Are

    My best times
    Were when I felt close to you
    But everything fell apart
    The moment I strayed from you

    In each smile
    In every single sigh
    Every minute detail
    Traces of you are found there

    Wherever you are I’ll find you
    Cause you’re the one I turn to
    Wherever you be I’ll be with you
    Cause you’re the one my heart is to
    I need you

    To see your smile
    I would pass every trial
    Desperately I await
    For the day when I’m by your side

    Wherever you are I’ll find you
    Cause you’re the one I turn to
    Wherever you are I’ll follow you
    Cause you’re the one I turn to
    Wherever you be I’ll be with you
    Cause you’re the one my love is to
    My love is to

    In every minute detail,
    Traces of u are found there,
    In every step that I take,
    My longing becomes so clear…
    I’ll follow you anywhere,
    I’ll overcome every fear,
    Anything just to be near, To be near.
    To be near.

    Wherever you may be
    I’ll follow till I see
    In my heart you will be
    Your love is all I need

    In every single smile
    Every single sigh
    Every minute detail
    Traces of you are there

    Wherever you may be
    I will search till we meet
    In my heart you will be
    Your love is all I need

    Wherever you may be

  2. Salaam

    I dream for a day
    When there’ll be
    No more misery

    When there’s no more hunger
    No need for shelter
    Isn’t there enough to share
    Or is that we just don’t care?

    We’re here for a day or two…

    Let me show my way…

    Salaamu alaik, Salaamu alaik, Salaamu alaikum

    I pray for a day
    When there’ll be
    Justice and unity

    Where we put aside our differences
    Fighting makes no sense
    Just a little faith
    To make it a better place

    We’re here for a day or two…

    Let me show my way…

    Salaamu alaik, Salaamu alaik, Salaamu alaikum

    Salaamu alaikum Ya ahlas-salaam, Salamu alaikum
    Salaamu alaikum Sayyid al-Kiram, Salaamu alaikum

    Let me show my way…

    Salaamu alaikum, alaikum, alaikum

  3. Without You

    Softly you called to me
    Out from the space between
    Out from eternity
    Where love winds a path unseen
    Out of the wilderness
    You beckoned my every step
    I stumbled sometimes and yet
    I never once looked back

    Cause I would see
    The man I know I used to be
    How I was lost before you reached for me
    And I don’t know
    Where I would go
    What I would do

    Without you

    Eser bir yel, dağılır sis
    Ne iz bırakır ne bir giz
    Yine o derin, dipsiz
    O şefkatle affeden

    Evvelim, şimdim, ahirim
    Benim Sevgili sahibim
    Bir okula misafirim
    Mezuniyet bekleyen

    So you might see
    Just what your love has meant to me
    And what the cost of losing you would be
    No I don’t know
    Where I would go or what I’d do

    Without you

    My heart won’t beat
    Without your love in me
    My eyes won’t see
    Beauty without thee
    Loves melody that you put in me
    Would lead me to only
    Silence without you

    Cause I would see
    The man I know I used to be
    How I was lost before you reached for me
    And I don’t know
    Where I would go
    What I would do

    Without you

  4. You Came to Me (English)

    You came to me
    In that hour of need
    When I was so lost
    So lonely
    You came to me
    Took my breath away
    Showed me the right way
    The way to lead

    You filled my heart with love
    Showed me the light above
    Now all I want
    Is to be with you
    You are my one true love
    Taught me to never judge
    Now all I want
    Is to be with you

    Allahumma Salli ‘ala Sayyidina Mustafa, ‘ala Habibeeka, Nabi’eeka, Mustafa

    You came to me
    In a time of despair
    I called on you
    You were there
    Without you
    What would my life mean?
    To not know the unseen
    The worlds between

    For you I’d sacrifice
    For you I’d give my life
    Anything…
    Just to be with you
    I feel so lost at times
    By all the hurt and lies
    Now all I want
    Is to be with you

    Allahumma Salli ‘ala Sayyidina Mustafa, ‘ala Habibeeka, Nabi’eeka, Mustafa

    Showed right from wrong
    Taught me to be strong
    Need you more than ever
    Ya Rasul Allah
    You came to me
    In that hour of need
    Need you more than ever
    Ya Rasul Allah

    You filled my heart with love
    Showed me the light above
    Now all I want
    Is to be with you
    You are my One True love
    Taught me to never judge
    Now all I want
    Is to be with you

  5. Give the Young a Chance

    Ours the future hold close
    For a time will come
    Deep in your heart there’s a river that flows
    All the way to Kingdom come
    Through the sandstorms where the high wind blows
    A desert rose does bloom
    Please help me…

    Give the young a chance
    Lead them in the dance
    My people
    Give the young a chance
    To change their circumstance
    And so… And so… It’s written:
    As the moon shall turn the tides
    And as the stars shall light your ride
    Don’t listen to the words of fools
    The young I know they are the jewels

    Deeds I’ve done what I’ve become
    Treasures I will find
    Nourishment I do receive
    Can’t help but believe
    The road is long I shall stay strong
    Please hear my song
    Help me…

    Give the young a chance
    Lead them in the dance
    My brothers
    Give the young a chance
    Lead them in the dance
    My sisters
    Give the young a chance
    To change their circumstance
    And so… And so… It’s written:
    As the moon shall turn the tides
    And as the stars shall light your ride
    Don’t listen to the words of fools
    The young I know they are the jewels

    Take me to gardens where
    Birds will sing lullabies
    Find me in the shade of trees
    Through gentle breeze
    Sweet scents filled the air…

    Give the young a chance
    Lead them in the dance
    My people
    Give the young a chance
    To change their circumstance
    And so… And so… It’s written:
    As the moon shall turn the tides
    And as the stars shall light your ride
    Don’t listen to the words of fools
    The young I know they are the jewels

  6. Trials of Life

    My life is not the same
    When I’m too concerned by what they say
    Why should I? When I have you
    To doubt you would be the worst mistake

    Deep inside I know
    That amidst all the darkness
    And everything, which makes no sense
    I know that you exist
    You are the light
    That guides me through my darkest nights
    That shows me right from wrong in life
    In a world that often lies

    Cause I don’t need anyone
    Nor anything in life
    But You
    No I don’t need anyone
    To show me my way
    No I don’t need anyone
    But You

    Trials of life upon me
    Are more precious than diamonds and gold
    Tested with fire I may be
    But I know I’ll come out stronger in this world

    Deep inside I know
    That amidst all the darkness
    And everything, which makes no sense
    I know that you exist
    You are the light
    That guides me through my darkest nights
    That shows me right from wrong in life
    In a world that often lies

    Cause I don’t need anyone
    Nor anything in life
    But You
    No I don’t need anyone
    To show me my way
    No I don’t need anyone
    But You

    I only want the things
    You know is best for me
    I’d gladly sacrifice
    If that’s what you decree
    I would break and
    Mourn in eternity
    Perish into the sea
    If that’s what you want for me

  7. Worry Ends

    Don’t be saddened by what you see
    By all the lies and treachery
    Life is cruel but don’t worry
    In your heart lies the key
    To unwind all the secrets
    Of this life we see

    When you feel you’ve lost it all
    When you don’t know who’s your friend or foe
    You wonder why you’re so alone
    Worry ends when faith begins
    Don’t be sad by what you see
    It’s true life has its miseries
    But one thing’s always worked for me
    Worry ends when faith begins

    Don’t be saddened by what you see
    I know life can be crazy
    A showcase of hypocrisy
    In the form of piety
    It’s just one big mystery
    For you and me

    I found my peace deep within
    Calling inside
    Follow what you feel is right
    So trust your heart go ahead
    Don’t lose sight
    Follow that voice deep inside

    When you feel you’ve lost it all
    When you don’t know who’s your friend or foe
    You wonder what you’re so alone
    Worry ends when faith begins

    Don’t be sad by what you see
    It’s true life has it’s miseries
    But one thing’s always worked for me
    Worry ends when faith begins

    If you’re weak it’s not a crime
    Don’t you know it’s blessing in disguise
    To know who’s honest and who spread lies
    Worry ends when faith begins

    Don’t be sad by what you see
    It’s true life has it’s miseries
    But one thing’s always worked for me
    Worry ends when faith begins

  8. Fragile World

    I know that I’m not alone
    What I’ve seen, has been seen before
    But it hurts just like a thorn
    A pain I’ve never felt before
    My heart says: “Just speak the truth”
    But my mind says: “Don’t be a fool”
    Need to get something off my mind
    Don’t let this silence be misunderstood

    I don’t know where my heart will take me
    But I know your light will protect me
    From this fragile world
    I don’t know where I’m destined to be
    Rich or poor, famous, loved or lonely
    But I know, without your light I’ll never cope
    In this fragile world

    Did you think you can silence me?
    With your lies, games and deceit?
    You can continue robbing me
    But you won’t rob my dignity
    I know that life is just a game
    An illusion that will fade
    Cheat and lie, have it your way
    But you can’t cheat death, no way

    I don’t know where my heart will take me
    But I know your light will protect me
    From this fragile world
    I don’t know where I’m destined to be
    Rich or poor, famous, loved or lonely
    But I know, without your light, I’ll never cope
    In this fragile world

    Life’s just a game
    An illusion that will fade
    Cheat and lie have it your way
    But you can’t cheat death, no way

    I don’t know where my heart will take me
    But I know your light will protect me
    From this fragile world
    I don’t know where I’m destined to be
    Rich or poor, famous, loved or lonely
    But I know, without your light I’ll never cope
    In this fragile world

  9. In Every Tear, He Is There

    Some might say this world today shows
    God’s left us to our mistakes oh
    He has never been
    So far away
    Some might say
    How could any father stand
    See his children across many lands
    Suffer so and give no helping hand
    No helping hand

    Somewhere tonight
    Far away and out of sight
    There’s a child that’s too weak to cry
    Hmmm
    Deep in those eyes
    Can’t you see him in disguise
    Reaching out to the heart that’s in you
    And I

    In every tear
    That is where
    He is there

    He’s the hand that wipes that brow
    He’s the tear that trickles down
    Upon the face that cries without a sound
    We need you now
    What a simple choice to make
    Between what you give and what you take
    When what you give
    Such precious life could save, life could save

    Somewhere inside
    There’s a part of you that asks why
    Would he leave so many so far behind
    And deep in those eyes
    Can’t you see Him in disguise
    Reaching out to the heart that’s in you
    And I…

  10. Make Me Strong

    I know I’m waiting
    Waiting for something
    Something to happen to me
    But this waiting comes with
    Trials and challenges
    Nothing in life is free
    I wish that somehow
    You’d tell me out aloud
    That on that day I’ll be ok
    But we’ll never know cause
    That’s not the way it works
    Help me find my way

    My Lord show me right from wrong
    Give me light make me strong
    I know the road is long
    Make me strong
    Sometimes it just gets too much
    I feel that I’ve lost touch
    I know the road is long
    Make me strong

    I know I’m waiting
    Yearning for something
    Something known only to me
    This waiting comes with
    Trials and challenges
    Life is one mystery
    I wish that somehow
    You’d tell me out aloud
    That on that day you’ll forgive me
    But we’ll never know cause
    That’s not the way it works
    I beg for your mercy

    My Lord show me right from wrong
    Give me light make me strong
    I know the road is long
    Make me strong
    Sometimes it just gets too much
    I feel that I’ve lost touch
    I know the road is long
    Make me strong

  11. No Word Is Worthy

    (ENGLISH)
    Searched for the words
    To describe your beauty
    No matter how I tried
    No word seemed worthy
    Struggled to find
    The right words for You
    Words just fail to describe
    What’s deep inside

    Subhan Allah, Wa alhamdulillah, la illaha il Allah, wa Allahu Akbar

    (URDU)
    Zemmeen Aseman, Jinn-o-Insaa bhi
    (Earth and the Heavens, Jinn and Mankind)

    Teri taa’reefein, Kartey bayan sabhi
    (All praise Thee)

    Bekhud huey, Dono jahan hi
    (So both worlds become intoxicated)

    Ruh se nikley, Jab ye kalma…Subhan Allah…
    (When the soul recites this one word…Subhan Allah)

    Subhan Allah, Wa alhamdulillah, la illaha il Allah, Wa Allahu Akbar

    (FARSI)
    Dar havaye To
    (In Your remembrance)

    Par migoshaayam
    (I spread my wings)

    Be omidi ke roozi
    (In hope for the day)

    Sooye To ayam
    (I come to You)

    Dar vasfe To
    (In describing You)

    Jomleha ra gashtam
    (I searched sentences)

    Kalameyi najostam
    (I found no word)

    Joz inke gooyam
    (Except to say)

    Subhan Allah, Wa alhamdulillah, la illaha il Allah, Wa Allahu Akbar
    (MALAY)
    Ku mencari kata puji
    (I searched for words to praise You with)

    Buat menemani zikir hati
    (Words to instill Your remembrance in my heart)

    Namun tiada kalam yang pasti
    (But no words are assuring enough)

    Yang sesuci kalam ini
    (As sacred as these)

    Subhan Allah, Wa alhamdulillah, la illaha il Allah, Wa Allahu Akbar

  12. Healing

    It’s so hard to explain
    What I’m feeling
    But I guess it’s ok
    Cause I’ll keep believing
    There’s something deep inside
    Something that’s calling
    It’s calling you and I
    It’s taking us up high

    Healing, a simple act of kindness bring such meaning
    A smile can change a life let’s start believing
    And feeling, let’s start healing

    Heal and you will be healed
    Break every border
    Give and you will receive
    It’s nature’s order
    There is a hidden force
    Pulling us closer
    It’s pulling you and I
    It’s pulling us up high to…

    Healing, a simple act of kindness brings such meaning
    A smile can change a life lets start believing
    And feeling, let’s start healing

    Hearts in the hand of another heart and in God’s hand are all hearts
    An eye takes care of another eye and from God’s eye nothing hides
    Seek only to give and you’ll receive
    So, heal and you will be healed
