Peace before turning to dust

(Praveen Vava)

This is a song of how, despite a rough childhood, without direction or purpose, one continues to pursue the love of music and never giving up in the face of adversity and finding peace again.

Dreams hopes Coffee smoke Bad childhood Worse luck STEM hopeless Skills none Born without a spoon Life couldn't anymore suck School was tough Street worse than rough Chased many dreams broke many hearts Never made the finishing line Hell, had too many false starts Learnt lots, forgot even more A few laughs and many hurts that are still sore Forget the greed, forget the lust Peace out, peace out Peace before I turn to dust Not one of my homies Could show me my true face in the mirror The poison that for years has been on simmer Eating me, cheating me Of what I could do, be on a list of Who's who!!! Bringing forth words that were new Never heard, never on anyone's tongue Always felt in my heart But never before sung. Forget the greed, forget the lust Peace out, peace out Peace before I turn to dust Forget the greed, forget the lust Peace out, peace out Peace before I turn to dust Tried many notes Tried many chords But nothing ever feels right When played to please the crowd Slowed down and let it be Waited for it to come to me Blocked the world out and turned inwards The only place I feel pure Music in my heart music in my soul The only time of God I feel sure. Forget the greed, forget the lust Peace out, peace out Peace before I turn to dust Forget the greed, forget the lust Peace out, peace out XXXXX XXXXXX X XXXX XX XXXX XXXXXX XX XXXXXXX XXXXXX XX XXXXXX XXX XXX XXXXXX XXXX XXXXXX XX XXX XXX XXX XXXX XXXXXXXX X XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXXXX XX XXX XXX XXX XXXXX XXX XXX XXXX XXXXX XXX XXXX XX XXX XXXXXX XXXX XXXX X XXXX XXX XXXX XX XXX XXXX XXX XXXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXX XXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXX XXXXXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXXXX XX XXXX XXXXX XXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XX XXX XXXXXXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXX XX XXXX XXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXX XXXXX XXXX XXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXXX X XXXX XX XXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXX XXXXX XXXX XXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXXX X XXXX XX XXXX
