Songs for Barby
Here are a couple of songs I wrote for Barby over the years.
And yes, they are quite long, it just happened to turn out that way.Wink

Harlequin (Barby's Song)

Part 1: A time for a change

Chorus:
I am the Harlequin, I will wipe away your tears
I am the Harlequin, I will chase away your fears
I am your Harlequin, no more lonely nights in agony
Come, spread your wings, my sweetest angel, and fly with me

The spotlights have trapped you in a cage of gold
And the clouds have covered you, holding you so cold
People are trying to help you, but the pain won't get away
But nothing lasts forever, I know you'll be happy again one day

Chorus

The sun will melt away the golden cage
I feel the time has come, a time for a change
The walls have fallen down, wide open are the gates
The time has come for you and me to fly away

Chorus

Part 2: Everlasting dream

Soon the clouds will float away
Leaving behind the light of a new day
And you will live in an everlasting dream

I will give you back your smile
And dance with you for a while
Our hearts are opened to this everlasting dream

Soon Paradise will open its gates
And you'll no longer be afraid
You're gonna live in an everlasting dream

Part 3: Harlequin's child

You are the Harlequin, you're feeding the child in me
You are the Harlequin, you're all an angel could ever be
You are the Harlequin, your smiles are caressing me
Come, spread your wings, my sweetest angel, and fly with me
(Words and music: Anthony Abdoella, 1999)

RE: Songs for Barby
Sweet Angel Dreams

Part 1: Promise

If I could talk to you
Just one single time
I would ask you
Are you feeling fine
There's so much I wanna ask
So much I wanna say
But all that really matters is
If you're feeling OK

If I could be with you
On the day when dreams come true
I would ask you
What has happened to you
Maybe it's none of my business
And there's nothing I can do
But it just makes me sad
To see what's become of you

And if you'd ask me anything to do
You can be sure that I'll be there for you

Part 2: Can you remember?

Can you remembr how they sang:
"A bird in a cage can't fly"
Can you remember how she danced
And charmed you with her smile
But that was back in the old days
When music was a funny game to play
But fame would soon ask a price to be paid

What has become of you

Can you remember them shouting for her brothers
When SHE was singing HER songs
Can you remember them calling her names
When they saw she was not so strong
Never thought a 'fan' could be so cruel
It seems that these crazy little fools
Have found a way to put an angel in a cage

What has become of you

Part 3: Look to the sky and fly away

Sweetest angel
Needs to fly
Sweetest angel
Needs to fly

Dream, my angel
You can fly
Dream, my angel
You can fly

Part 4: The dream

In the safety of the dream
We are flying high
Gone are the pain and sorrow
Of our 'normal' lives

On a silent night by the sea
We're safe in our embrace
I see the light in your eyes
And a smile on your face

Oh, I wanna kiss you now
Oh, I wanna touch you now
Oh, I wanna hold you now
You're my sweetest dream

Oh, I wanna kiss you now
Oh, I wanna touch you now
Oh, I wanna love you now
And I don't wanna wake up from this dream

I know that we will never meet
I know that this is only fantasy
But all I can do
Is dream about you

You changed my life with music
And I can't do anything in return
So I'll give you every night
What I can't give in the light

Oh, I wanna...(etc.)

Part 5: Lonely morning

Another lonely morning
In this empty bed
Pieces of sweet dreams
Running through my head

If I ever could tell her
What would she think?
"Anthony, you're a nice guy"
Or "Hey, is your mind on the brink"?

I maybe never know the answer
I'll maybe never see her again
But I hope she knows there's room for her
In the heart of this lonely man

I know that I'm just a simple man
With not so much to give
But my love for her will keep on growing
As long as I shall live

She's so far away now
And I know I'll never find
The answers to the questions
Spinning in my head

Why are those dreams about her
Haunting me every night
Why can't I help her to
Make a life full of light

I maybe never...(etc.)

Part 6: Promise (reprise)

If I could be with you
For the rest of my life
I would promise you
That I'll treat you kind
On the day when dreams come true
When we're sailing the stars above
I will say to you
That you're the one I love...

Remember that I won't...
Remember that I won't let you down
'cause I'm for you

(Words and music: Anthony Abdoella / Closing section inspired by "Sweetest Angel", 2003)

RE: Songs for Barby
I still love you

It's nearly four years since the day I saw her for the last time
I wonder what's she's doing now, I hope that she is fine
After all it ain't easy to keep on dreaming 'bout someone I might never see again
After all it ain't easy to keep that promise I'll do whatever I can

Once again my thoughts are with her, I hope she's OK
But just thinking about her is all I can do, that's what I must face
After all it ain't easy to want to help her if can't be with her
After all it ain't easy to stand and watch the light fade in the eyes of this sweet girl

Chorus:
But I still love you
And I really want to
See you smile again
While the sun is shining brighter

Yes, I still love you
And I really want to
See you dance again
And make the world a little lighter

Should I wait forever or is now the time I must let go
Surely she wouldn't think about a guy she doesn't even know
After all it's too easy to make promises I cannot keep
After all it's too easy to good deeds while you're asleep

Chorus

The memory of her smile makes the sun shine on rainy days
Despite my doubts this feeling will never go away
I still want to do for you whatever I can
Waiting forever 'till the day I will see you again

They say sunshine will come after the rain
I'm still hoping it won't be too late

'Cos I still love you
(words and music: Anthony Abdoella, 2006)

RE: Songs for Barby
The band is called "Almost Heavenly Summer". At the moment it's just a hobby-project. Those who have been to the concerts in Panningen have seen us play, but it was the first time we actually played together. I even hadn't met two of the other girls before. But we really liked it and we want to do it more often. So, if we really become a serious band, I will definitely want to play these songs, especially "Sweet Angel Dreams", because I'm really proud of that one.

RE: Songs for Barby
Good, Anthony. Really good.

This part I like the most:
In the safety of the dream
We are flying high
Gone are the pain and sorrow
Of our 'normal' lives

On a silent night by the sea
We're safe in our embrace
I see the light in your eyes
And a smile on your face

yeah, that part was inspired by a dream I had. It's very strange, but very often when I fall in love with someone, I'm dreaming that the two of us are spending a night by the sea.

RE: Songs for Barby
Thank you, Marlous
I'm planning to write a fourth and final song, which will be more suitable for my band to play. These songs are just too complex for a street band.

RE: Songs for Barby
Thanks Cathrine, I hope that too. From these three, that's the song I'm most proud of. But it's not possible (yet) for my band to play it. First we need a complete band line-up (although Ada can play keyboards as well), and second, the song is twelve minutes long...

RE: Songs for Barby
I don't know what to write, those lirycs touched my heart very deeply, every line is wonderful, full of feelings.
I'm also writing lirycs and songs, but no so good and true as You.
Wonderful !!
