The Key Lyrics

By: Sami Yusuf


In Andalucian morning light
In seas of azure, in dawning skies
I watch you bloom, the birth of spring
You are the song that all lovers sing
You are the key holding me in

I am a prisoner, I can’t escape
The key is inside the forms you take
You are the web I cannot spin
You are the pulse beneath my skin
You are the key holding me in

Your love is a door I cannot find
The only way out is from deep inside
I’m humbled by the light you take
When you cover every colour of the day
I’m brightened by the night you bring
You are the divine eternal ring
You are the end where everything begins
You are the key holding me in

I’m humbled by the light you take
When you cover every colour of the day
Illuminated in the night you bring
You are the divine eternal ring
You are the end where everything begins
You are the key holding me in
The only key holding me in

The Key:
In an album of search and struggle, The Key represents a source of obstruction. We may feel imprisoned in this physical realm, but sometimes the easiest way to free ourselves is to first free our minds. While The Key can keep us captive, it can also set us free.

      • “The forms you take” brother Aazad mean Asma al Husna here I think. The Patient, The Forgiver, The Grateful….especially the attributes which we are to aspire to…so the “Key” of escaping our limited minds, form and physical side is to take refuge in Allah and NOT the world and aspire to Asma Al Husna that are relevant to our characters.

        I hope that helps
        I love this lyric “The Key” it reminds me a little of Moulana Rumi’s mystical poems.

    • I too agree with you… It must’ve been “You are the beginning where everything ends”… Not satisfied with the complete song, just because of this particular line…

      • He is on about the journey to Allah in the path of Sufism, the end of the journey is when you know Allah , and from that…everything begins.

        Allah knows best
