SHADOWS

By Ivy Mellin October 2008

Every step that were afraid to take
Every thoughtful night we stay awake
Every time we want to close our eyes
were blind to the other side
Every time that we defend ourselves
Every time we play somebody else
Every hole inside we try to fill
its still a matter of time

But if we keep on following what destiny taught us
and if we keep on stopping the struggle
but if we keep on saving our treasure inside
does it mean that all will be good

Shadows at night, they fade
Shadows will soon be away
Shadows stay if you want them to stay
but you can tell them to leave you for good
Shadows at night strengthen you

Everything that we have done in grief
Everything that lead us to our greed
Every time we gave up our believe
we feel just a lack of love
Every limit we failed to exceed
Every time we fell down on our knees
Every second chance we didnt take
it breaks our heart in two



WITHOUT GOOD NIGHT KISS

By Ivy Mellin October 2008

I had a bad sleep after the midnight news
I woke up feeling distressed and confused
Nightmares on TV and still while I sleep
At day only I dream of peace

Could you please stop showing these pictures
I dont wanna watch the situation
The troupes have guns but they have no faces
They fire bombs, have they got fun?

Holidays for some pupils and teachers
One mad boy played shooter in his school
He destroyed the lives of numerous people
then killed himself and suddenly hes famous
now he gets attention , now they pay attention
had he missed attention, is he hisself a victim?

What happens to a child playing with guns
What happens to a child that needs more love
What happens to a child that grows up with hate
What happens to it? What happens to it?
What happens to it without good night kiss?

Humans scream, theyre yelling and shouting
they escape with dirty bloody faces
through the dust before the towers catch them
911, a day well never forget
A baby died, its mother has choked it
before that day its father has raped them
he never knew or learned something else than
abuse in past, he grew up with violence

Violence violence

What happens to a child playing with guns
What happens to a child that needs more love
What happens to a child that grows up with hate
What happens to it? What happens to it?
What happens to it without good night kiss?

Mom, I cant sleep, I had a bad dream everything was on fire
Mom, I watched TV, and there was fire.. Mom! Theyre bombing each other
Mom, they will come to us, I am afraid, when will they come to us..

What happens to the world while we look away
until they throw bombs, until were deep within
what happens to us, how can we protect our children?
what happens to them, what happens to them?

What happens to a child playing with guns
What happens to a child that needs more love
What happens to a child that grows up with hate
What happens to it? What happens to it?
What happens to it without good night kiss?

  THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RAINBOW

by Ivy Mellin November 2008

Hello dear God, I feel like I can talk to you now
Hello dear God, today I thought about myself
I feel really good, maybe a bit lonely sometimes
but as you know, I feel misunderstood

Its okay, because how should they know about

The other side of the rainbow,
watching a sky more blue than theirs
the other side of the rainbow,
its worth it to learn a different world
and if you want to find me, you can come and you will find me
on the other side of the rainbow

You know I dont hide, Im just where no one seems to be
sometimes I ask would you come with me they say
No no no we stay here
because were safe here

Its okay, because how should they know about

The other side of the rainbow,
watching a sky more blue than theirs
the other side of the rainbow,
its worth it to learn a different world
and if you want to find me, you can come and you will find me
on the other side
God, I dont know why, no one tries to cross this bridge
tell everyone, Im here and welcome all on the other side of the rainbow



IF I GOT THE MONEY

by Ivy Mellin December 2009

If I got the money what would I buy
I would buy the sunrise, I would buy the time
I would buy the night and I would buy the day
and for the dry lands I would buy the rain

If I got the money what would I buy
Id buy a thousand roses that never die
Id give them to the lovesick and to the sad
to the broken-hearted whove lost their sense

And what would you do?

If I got the money what would I do
Id take a rocket to meet the man in the moon
Id ask him if hes happy to watch the earth
though theres war and violence and every day less love
If I got the money what would I do
Id buy every circus and every zoo
Id call a taxi man and Id pay him a lot
to bring the animals to where theyre from

And what would you do?

If I got the money what would I do
Id buy the government and Id change the rules
Id buy all the dues and the homelessness
Id buy the rights to judge about life and death
If I got the money what would I buy
Id buy Iraq and the never-ending fight
The soldiers Id send home to their families
as I bought the war on ebay and clicked on delete

And what would you do?
If I got the money what would I do
Id start a bakery in poor Peru
Bread for the world and clean water, too
everywhere, for everyone, for me and you

And if I got the money what would I buy
Id buy the prejudices about the black and white
Id buy the religion, dogmatism and pride
everything that leads to even more division and might

And If I got these things what would I do
Maybe I should ask again the man in the moon
Maybe I simply throw them into the sea
as water can be healing, cleaning, freeing

But not for me, I dont need anything
I am a dreamer , Im still dreaming
That Ill buy the world and the universe
just to decide to have peace on earth

Not for me, I dont need anything
Id pack a big bag with all these things
The bad things Ill burn and the good things Ill spray
right into the atmosphere and then Ill wait for rain
The rain will spread it everywhere, so well all have enough
I dont need to buy again and youll sing the song of love
I just wanted to let you know

If I got the money , thats what I would do
