    Looking for poets/songwriters in a funky mode


    Greetings

    I am looking for any songwriters here, or poets, looking for songs that capture the spirit of our nation, yet are not "milli-Naghme" to be more precise, I am looking for songs and poems ( that can be used as songs) in the mold of Iqbal's " Yeh Ghazi yeh teray PurIsraar Banday"

    I have been performing for a number of years and work with some Singers in Pakistan and bands in US. trying to get some new songs going. You get the whole credit for the lyrics. All I want to do is to do the music, and perform new original material rather than Vital sinus/sins/sines/signs again n again.

    There is a chance for the songs to be released.. depending on if I can afford the recording studio bills heh. I have done 4 original songs so far.. just trying to do more with some outside help now.



    Any Takers

    I did not write this poem, but is this something that might fill the need here. and by the way I'm not shouting, I pasted it.
    BOTH SIDES OF THE STORY

    FIND YOURSELF IN THE GUTTER, IN A LONELY PART OF TOWN

    WHERE DEATH WAITS IN DARKNESS WITH A WEAPON TO CUT SOME STRANGER DOWN

    SLEEPING WITH AN EMPTY BOTTLE, HE'S A SAD AND AN EMPTY HEARTED MAN

    ALL HE NEEDS IS A JOB, AND A LITTLE RESPECT, SO HE CAN GO OUT WHILE HE CAN

    WE ALWAYS NEED TO HEAR BOTH SIDES OF THE STORY

    A NIEGHBOURHOOD PEACE IS SHATTERED, ITS THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT

    YOUNG FACES HIDE IN THE SHADOWS WHILE THEY WATCH THEIR MOTHER AND FATHER FIGHT, HE SAYS
    SHE'S BEEN UNFAITHFUL, SHE SAYS HER LOVE FOR HIM IS GONE

    AND THE BROTHER SHRUGS TO HIS SISTER"LOOKS LIKE IT'S JUST US FROM NOW ON"
    WE ALWAYS NEED TO HEAR BTOH SIDES OF THE STORY

    AND THE LIGHTS ARE ALL ON, THE WORLD IS WATCHING NOW
    PEOPLE LOOKING FOR TRUTH, WE MUST NOT FAIL THEM NOW
    BE SURE, BEFORE WE CLOSE OUR EYES DONT WALK AWAY FROM HERE
    TILL YOU HEAR BOTH SIDES OF THE STORY
    HERE WE ARE ALL GATHERED IN WHAT SEEMS TO BE THE CENTRE OF THE STORM
    NIEGHBOURS ONCE FRIENDLY, NOW STAND EACH SIDE OF THE LINE THATS BEEN DRAWN
    THEY'VE BEEN FIGHTING HERE FOR YEARS, BUT NOW THERE'S KILLING ON THE STREETS
    WHILE SMALL COFFINS ARE ARE LINED UP SADLY, NOW UNITED IN DEFEAT
    WE ALWAYS NEED TO HEAR BTOH SIDES OF THE STORY
    AND THE LIGHTS ARE ALL ON, THE WORLD IS WATCHING NOW
    PEOPLE LOOKING FOR TRUTH, WE MUST NOT FAIL THEM NOW
    BE SURE, BEFORE WE CLOSE OUR EYES DONT WALK AWAY FROM HERE
    TILL YOU HEAR BOTH SIDES OF THE STORY
    WHITE MAN TURNS THE CORNER, FINDS HIMSELF WITHIN A DIFFERENT WORLD
    GHETTO KID GRABS HIS SHOULDER, THROWS HIM UP AGAINST THE WALL
    HE SAYS," WOULD YOU RESPECT ME IF I DID'NT HAVE THIS GUN
    `CUZ WITHOUT IT I DONT GET, AND THATS WHY I CARRY ONE"
    WE ALWAYS NEED TO HEAR BTOH SIDES OF THE STORY

        Nah, I dont think Phil Collins is up to suin' anybody.
        And any way I never was in to Urdu poetry, Funky or not, so I might as well keep me big beak shut!
