Juwita Suwito – Belle of the Ball

I heard this track from litefm for the past few days, and I initially thought of “Barbra Streisand” thinking the title of this song was “Cold December” or “Sweet September”. I even launched Shazam while I was at the wheel (traffic light) but Shazam couldn’t identify the music. It took me some time listening to start realizing the track should be “Belle of the Ball” – which means Beautiful Girl of the Prom (or any other dancing event). Belle is “Beautiful” in French, so yeah – the song stuck in my mind for a while.. especially the gorgeous lyrics.

Funny fact, my wife is born in December (Cold December) and I was born in September (Sweet September). Just ponder through that for a while. Hehe.. my wife is gonna be so angry.. hehe.. Just playing around. I loved Juwita Suwito’s previous track “All This Time” and I’ve gotta say.. she’s getting better everytime.

Innocent Sweet September
Belle of the Ball
You had it all
When did you fall into Cold December?
You’re not the girl that I remember
Belle of the Ball
You could still have it all


In the heart of sleepy town
A reminiscent old battleground
A tempest rages
Thunders roar
Teardrops ricochet off the ground
At the centre of it all
So oblivious in your spoil
Naval-gazing, there you smile
Shadow dancing to wild applauseBeautiful blessed daughter
Innocent Sweet September
Belle of the Ball
You had it all
When did you fall into Cold December?
You’re not the girl that I remember
Belle of the Ball
You could still have it allAren’t you tired of endless lies
Empty promises
Shifty eyes
How do you sleep?
You oathed, you swore
You’ve become the one you so despised

Beautiful blessed daughter
Innocent Sweet September
Belle of the Ball
When did you fall into this blessed curse?
Cold December holds you tight
But you are stronger
Belle of the Ball
You could still have it all

Will you rise from your mighty super?
Only you can break the spell
Don’t let us down
You wear a crown

Beautiful blessed daughter
Innocent Sweet September
Belle of the Ball
You had it all
When did you fall into Cold December?
You’re not the girl that I remember
Belle of the Ball
You could still have it all

Cause you are stronger
You could still have it all
Have it all

Belle of the Ball
