Serj Tankian – Rumi Lyrics

Rumi Lyrics – Serj Tankian

Oh, Dear Rumi,
My little baby I love you,
You move me, my son,
You improve me,
Cause you’re the one.

The wisdom of the word,
The source of all of creation,

Ecstasy of devotion and the sound of every action,
Striving to hear and see all life an anomaly,
Never lose that wonder, the necessity of mystery,
Be drunk with passion and the peaceful rivers of love,
Close both your eyes and hear the distant flight of doves,

When you’re grown up in your prime,
Stay away from God and crime,
Embody justice for this tormenting, tormented world,
You will learn something every day,
Don’t dip your toes, go all the way,
Be the change you want to see and be the man you want to be.

Oh dear Rumi
The supreme poet of love
You move me like the sun,
Become the truth and hold it above all,

Get lost in the breeze of the trees that stand tall,
Don’t you realize that it’s all about knowledge and love,
Close both your eyes and hear the distant flight of doves.

When you’re grown up in your prime,
Stay away from God and crime,
Embody justice for this tormenting, tormented world,
You will learn something every day,
Don’t dip your toes, go all the way,
Be the change you want to see and be the man you want to be.

Man you want to be..
Dear son,
I pray that your days are long, and your path matches your song,
Your smile is worth every sacrifice in this life, your breath now my reason to go on,
I love you more than I ever could imagine for any being on this earth,

When you’re grown up in your prime,
Stay away from God and crime,
Embody justice for this tormenting, tormented world,
You will learn something every day,
Don’t dip your toes, go all the way,

When you’re grown up in your prime,
Stay away from God and crime,
Embody justice for this tormenting, tormented world,
You will learn something every day,
Don’t dip your toes, go all the way,
Be the change you want to see and be the man you want to be.
