LYRICS: The Artist (Collab with Aaraf Afzal)

I was alone on the canvas, and then you came around
I was afraid to be here, but you were waiting to be found
I stood there silently, you had to ask why
I said I’d be the earth, you said you’d be the sky.

A stroke of the brush, soon we will know
A dab of our souls, together we will go.

There’s a story in every page you turn
A story in every chord and tune you learn
A story in every shade of black and blue and gold
A story in every heart, that’s waiting to be told

I sought inspiration, in every crack in every wall
I sat and tapped my feet, waiting for your call
But then the tune I was tapping to, began to speak to me
And now I’ve come down, with a case of symphony.

A beat of the drums, soon we will know
A voice from our chests, together we will go

There’s a story in every page you turn
A story in every chord and tune you learn
A story in every shade of black and blue and gold
A story in every heart waiting to be told

There’s a story in the strip of film they roll
In every crease and every fold
A story in every mark on all the walls
A story, what are you waiting for?
Listen for your story’s call.

Oh, singers,
Painters and writers,
Poets and pianists,
Shine bright, sing
Our anthem
This is our anthem, this is our anthem
This is our anthem, this is our anthem 

There’s a story in every chapter you turn
A story in every orchestra you learn
A story in every shade of red and white and gold,
A story in every heart waiting to be told.
A story i
n every shot and take they roll,
A story in every sculpt and every mould,
A story in every colour on every wall
A story why are you waiting?
Listen for your story’s call.
