Not A Symphony
Words & Music by Robert Z. Milla
First you tried to capture me
Then you said you want to be free

First you spoke of love and faith
Then you said ‘Let’s go our separate ways’

So leave me and go your way
Believe me I know you’ll pray
To get me back one day

You’ll see that I won’t die
You’ll never see me cry
No, I’ll survive
And I’ll tell you why

A traitor is not a friend
And a pebble is not a diamond
And a desert is not the place to plant a rose
A pond is not a sea
And a noise is not a symphony
But my heart is full of tunes
And wants to compose

I will go on
Avoiding all the memories till they are gone

And I’ll get out of my head
All the ‘I love you’s’ that you always said

Though it’s not easy I’ll find
The strength to leave you behind
And banish you from my mind

Don’t think that you broke my heart
No, I am strong and I’ll start
A new life in which you’ll play no part

‘Cos a traitor is not a friend
And a pebble is not a diamond
And a desert is not the place to plant a rose
A pond is not a sea
And a noise is not a symphony
But my heart is full of tunes
And wants to compose
Compose...
Compose...

Your heart isn’t ripe enough
And knows nothing about love
So I let you go
It doesn’t hurt anymore
‘Cos I know

A spark is not a fire
And one single voice is not a choir
But my heart is full of dreams
And wants to sing
But it can’t

A traitor is not a friend
And a pebble is not a diamond
And a desert is not the place to plant a rose
A pond is not a sea
And a noise is not a symphony
But my heart is full of tunes
And wants to compose
Compose...
Compose...

Mmh...
Good-bye, my friend
Mmh...
Believe me, this is the end
