Christmas is coming, so why not start wrapping up a Christmas box of ALENS lyrics?

These are for all of you out there interested in my lyric & song writing!

Welcome and enjoy!

The first lyrics I’ll wrap in this Christmas box are the lyrics to Before You Speak. I wrote this song in mid-summer, 2008.

Sometimes people do not realise the effect their words have on others. At other times they count precisely  on their words’ effect, and misuse them to hurt someone. Whatever the situation, there’s no excuse for speaking damagingly of anyone, for judging or offending people when they are not around or able to defend themselves.

I wish you all a peaceful Christmas, free of deceit and full of light and love!

Before You Speak

It is the wind in your words/ That takes away my voice and spells down fear on my solace

This world, it has, it has to be a better place…/ Do you believe in our sparkle?


Ah, in your heart, find a little bit of hope

To light your days, to make you happy.

Ah, in your heart, there is room enough to hold

So much more greatness and wonders.


Can you see beyond the hatred in your words? And/ Can you feel the light of greatness?

Do you really mean the things you say to bring me pain?

Do you really mean to make me suffer?


You think you know what I am about to say to you…

You think you can predict every single move I make…

But your certainty is vain, it can only bring you solitude an pain.


Look in your heart,  find a little bit of hope,

To light your days, to make you happy!

Look in your heart,  find a little bit of hope, hope, hope…


Before you say what’s on your mind,

Before you speak, be mindful!

Do listen to what others say, but

Don’t, don’t, throw away your words!
