Away From You



You're basic to my peace
You're my quiet calm
I'm lost without you when you're in Assam

You're applause to my art
You're my curtain call
I'm lost without you when you're in Bengal

You're sunshine to my sky
You're my shining star
I'm lost without you when you're in Dakar

You're honey to my taste
You're my sugar cane
I'm lost without you when you're in Bahrain

You're central to my life
You're my spirit core
I'm lost without you when you're in Lahore

You're nurture to my soul
You're my daily fare
I'm lost without you when you're in Bonaire

You're funny to my bone
You're my comic book
I'm lost without you when you're in Tobruk

You're beauty to my eyes
You're my ideal breed
I'm lost without you when you're in Rashid
