about

A bipolar song, driven by abstracted poetic language. This is one of two songs in formal Arabic (فصحة). It paints a static yet metaphorically rich scene where the protagonist reflects on a bittersweet life through a morning coffee.

lyrics

ENGLISH TRANSLATION

Verse
My morning coffee is the color of the night
What it lacks, though, is a lunar disc whispering ceased since yesterday.

Chorus
Everyday, it’s bitter

VII
My morning coffee tastes like pain
A coffee-flavored piece of chocolate.
My morning coffee is the color of the night
The sun sets in my cup

Chorus
Everyday, it’s bitter

ARABIC LYRICS

Verse I
بلون الليل قهوتي الصباحية
ينقصها قرص قمر غاب همسه عن أمس

CH
مُرةٌ / كل يوم

Verse II
بطعم الألم قهوتي الصباحية
قطعة شيكولاتة بنكهة البن
بلون الليل قهوتي الصباحية
تنكسف الشمس في فنجاني

CH
مُرةٌ / كل يوم
