CROSS-ORIGIN

 Cross-Origin's collection of reinterpreted works from Clifford Borg's repertoire successfully extracts the brittle essence of his emotive piano compositions. Presented in a fresh guise and reflecting an adventurous inclination on the musician's part, the end result is fascinating, introducing a new aspect to Borg's talent that should certainly open new doors beyond his established classical music niche". (Michael Bugeja, music journalist, August 2014).


It is not easy to recall all that I have experienced while on “Cross-Origin”, my third album so far. Perhaps this is due to the fact that it has taken eight long years to complete this album, since it was in parallel with “Origin”. I have been through some rough times but in retrospect, the life changing events encountered have been positive. Why “Cross- Origin” ? This album represents a transition within my work, a crossover of different musical styles. The music in this album, is a reinterpretation of most of the tracks from “Origin”. “Sunday” and “Ave Maria” are completely new compositions. “Tango Je T'Adore” has the roots from “Ira” (Drifted). It has been a long journey and I hope you will enjoy the music as much as I have enjoyed living through the trials and tribulations of these last eight years.

LYRICS

COMPLETE ( Radio Edit)

Feeling Complete,

I thought, I 'd never feel,

Being in Peace,

I thought, I 'd never be.

 

Sharing my Life,

With Myself, was a Test.

Now it's the Time,

To sit down, Have a Rest.

 

To be Complete,

One should not be Discreet,

To be in Peace,

You should Stand, On your feet.

 

These words are meant,

To be You, Full of Zest.

Now it's the Time,

To sit Down, Be my Guest.

 

LONGING DAWN (Radio Edit)

I'm all alone,

No one there to hold me close.

I feel lost and disillusioned,

No one here to feed my soul.

 

I know, I lost my faith,

Along the way.

And now, there are missing pieces,

In this jigsaw of my darkened life,

I feel so cold.

 

I've fallen before and carried on.

And now, I must do the same,

Because I have faith in who I am.

And now I found,

A love for all around me.

And yes I am contended,

I found the answer in myself.

 

AVE MARIA ( Radio Edit )

 

Pray for us,

Ave Maria,

Save our Souls,

Ave Maria,

 

Tears of joy,

Ave Maria,

Ave.

 

I praise, every moment that we live,

Every breath we need to breathe.

I just can't stop calling you, Ave Maria.

I carry on calling you ,Ave Maria.

 

Please be strong,

Ave Maria,  Should I go on?

Ave Maria,Words of hope, Ave Maria.Ave.

 

I dream, about peace and harmony,

Could this be world'sdestiny?

I just can't stop calling you,

Ave Maria, I carry on calling you, Ave Maria.

 

EMERGENCE (Radio Edit) 

Emergence,

I Feel You. Emergence,

I Need You.

When I embrace you,

my Heart is Thankful,

Emergence, running through my viens,

Forever, Eternally.

 

Emergence, now I Want You,

Emergence, now I Search for You.

Now my Heart,

Pumps river of notes,

To guide my thoughts.

Now my Mind, Unites my body and soul,

Sets my spirits to flow.

Now my World, lights the Universe, Emergence.

 

SUNDAY 

Those of us who fear,

Certain dreams inside,

That fade away,

Maybe it's just a matter of time,

It's Sunday.

 

When our time is near,

All our pain inside,

Slowly creeps deep down,

Our truth comes along at the end,

It's Sunday.

 

During this trip,

All our innocence and consciousness,

Slowly comes into life to remind,

Cause our days are alive for a while,

It's Sunday.

 

LA BELLEZZA

 

Credo, che in ogni senso,

Ti amerò,

Ti cercherò,

Forse è il destino.

 

Sento, il tuo sorriso,

Bacami,

Ricordami,

Amami, per sempre.

 

Credo che vivo,

La Realta'.

La vita è bella cosi.

Senti il mio cuore,

Che palpita.

Grazie di stare con me.

 

Ho trovato in te,

La pace in me,

Piango di felicità, con te.

 

È una storia vera,

Credimi,

Cercami,

Senti questo sole.

 

Sento la tua mano,

Toccami,

Spogliami,

Amami, ti prego.

 

Credo che vivo,

L'immensità ,

La vita è bella cosi.

Senti, il mio cuore,

Dentro di me,

Ti chiamo per volare con me.

 

WORTH WAITING ?


Somehow, Somewhere, Someday,

Things happen in their own way.

Everything falls into place,

Mysteries follow their own pace.

 

Waiting can be a two fold game,

Patience might lead to your way.

Dreams fade away into dust,

Love turns and twists into lust.

 

Wandering what future awaits,

Seeking truth along the way.

Is it Worth Waiting ?

Is is worth waiting at all.

 

Somehow, Somewhere, Someday,

Things happen in their own way,

Chapters end and others begin,

Feeling fullfilled from within.

Waiting, Waiting, is it Worth Waiting ?

 

TANGO JE T'ADORE ( Radio Edit)

 

My love for you will never fade away,

Forever, Tango Je t'Adore.

When my heart tells me not to understand,

Again, Tango Je t'Adore.

 

In happiness I turn to you,

In anger, I follow you.

I embrace, every steps that you create,

Although they are imaginary.

 

In Happiness I turn to you,

In anger, I follow you.

Electric pulses that you generate,

Leads me to say, Tango Je t'Adore.

 

JELAOUS BOSSANOVA


I've had my share in the past,

I'm in peace with Myself.

Can't you see, What I see,

I'm afraid it is your, Jelaous Bossanova.

 

I fly high like a bird,

No one stood in the way.

Oh girl, lead your life,

Orelse you will hear, your Jealous Bossanova.

 

No one treated me this way,

When you uttered one word,

I've closed all my doors.

What I left behind,

Is not my Jealous Bossanova,

Please listen to your, Jealous Bossanova.

 

I've tried to do my best,

I've been looking around,

In the meantime I will,

Create my own.

Bossanova.
