Original Song – Cynical


This is the lyrics of a song that I wrote a while back, decided to title it Cynical. I am still looking for a singer who will add melody to it and use it to bless humanity. If you have concrete ideas, please send an email.

There have been some low points in my life that I battled with depression, and this period was one of such. I was in the middle of my ‘extra year’ in the university, was working part-time with a publishing house, and was barely keeping it together. That distorted my view of the world dynamics a little. When I put pen to paper, this is what I came up with.

I have become Cynical
With all I’ve been through
Though your Love has been there all along
I’ve chosen not to be thankful anymore
I hardly ever look forward
To the time we’ve always shared
Now I see the light, I change my ways
Am pushing aside my busyness to be with you
I remember the season
When all I had is your Love
But so many distractions on my way
Makes it hard to stay focused on you
I’ve chosen to live with you
I’ve chosen to live for you
I’ve chosen to live by you
Change me Lord to be like you always
