About Planets of the Sun (and lyrics)
Planets of the sun, with a soft and sensually seductive jazz feel, tells a story of love lost, temporal yet eternal, using the metaphor of planetary orbits around a single central sun –as all loves revolve around the radiant source of ALL LOVE—and the deliciously agonizing sweetness of love touched upon and lost into the mists of time.
Drink the rich dark wine of your sweet sorrow, beloved!
It is the living proof of a loving heart!
Love is never lost, true and knowing lover!;
All love that is found, anchored in the fabric of the living spirit, is found forever!
You say: “love is never free”
Why do, you give it all to me?
You say: “love must pay the price”
Why does, paying feel so sweet and nice?
Allah! Hymn na dere na! (Spirit! The song of love is here!)
Allah! Hymn na dare nom (God! That song is your name!)
You say: “Love must pay the price”
Sweet Sugar: Why do, lovers live in paradise.
You say: “Gravity’s our chain”
We can’t change, the orbits we’ve arranged
We’re just planets of the sun
We can’t touch, cannot pull our paths apart.
Once, we believed in love
Shadows don’t fall during high noon.
Then, while white fires raged
Arrows did rain upon black doves.
