Astronomia

This used to be my favourite song for a very long time around 2013. It was released somewhere in 2010, but I never heard it until a few years later. It was my ringtone, my alarm and the song I’d play on a continuous loop. This ‘never go home’ version has lyrics added to it. Honestly, I don’t see very deep rooted emotions or interpretations that can be excavated from these lyrics. But, this song just makes me smile reminiscing those days. So, I’m going to go ahead a attempt to write a short poem. Let’s see what I come up with.

Astronomia {Never Go Home} – Ruelha

Sure, work and responsibilities are cold.
But in our minds, we're never growing old.
You only live once.
We spend it on a dance.
Never going home.
Free, everywhere to roam.
We are young and free.
Bones and muscles still healthy.
We're not going to stop.
Until with exhaustion we drop.
We dance away every feeling.
Our minds and hearts aren't dealing.
With the pains of love and romance.
We just dance away and freelance.
This music energizes us.
There's nothing to discuss.
We're young and ripe with life.
Unlikely to take a husband or wife.
There's just music in our veins.
This trance within us to blame.
You only live once.
We spend it on a dance.
We're not going to stop.
Until with exhaustion we drop.
We never go home.
Anywhere free to roam.
We're never going home.
We don't like being alone.
We're never going home.
It's part of our genome.
And we're not going to stop.
Until with exhaustion we drop.

This poem is purely literary. It is inspired by this electronic number ‘Astronomia {never go home}’ by Russian artist Tony Igy. I’ve embedded it below for your reference. Please read my poem with an open mind and out of respect for the written word. To me, writing is my life. There is nothing I love more. I have a very creative imagination. I have always written from my heart …about topics that I am passionate about – Christianity, makeup, melancholic poetry, food, romance, women’s issues, soulful music, narratives etc. Given the circumstances, my gender, situation, geography etc., I feel the need to put up a disclaimer every time I write a romantic/melancholic piece. Everyone is entitled to an opinion. But, please don’t interpret this poem in a way it was not intended. That is just my humble request. Please refrain from attempting to draw parallels to my life as much of what I write is fiction. Some of my writings may contain material unsuitable for children.

Astronomia {Never Go Home} Lyrics – Tony Igy

We're not a love song
More like a dream
Call us the city
That never sleeps
We're not a love song
More like a rush
We're juvenecent
Helluva drug
Follow my voice like a melody
Meet me outside, black smoke white teeth
Follow my voice like a melody
Meet me outside, side side side
I'll trade my heart for a dance
Hold you with blood on my hands
I'm high wired
Tug on my lip til I'm blue
We love like teenagers do
And
We'll never grow up
We'll never grow up
We'll never go home
We'll never grow up
We'll never grow up
We'll never go home
We'll never grow up
We'll never go ...
We'll never grow up
We'll never go home
We're not a love song
More like a dream
I'm drawn to danger
You're drawn to me
We're not a love song
More like a high
So mesmerizing
It's called a crime
Follow my voice like a melody
Meet me outside, black smoke white teeth
Follow my voice like a melody
Meet me outside, side side side
We'll never grow up
We'll never grow up
We'll never go home
We'll never grow up
We'll never grow up
We'll never go home
