The Softer Side of Me ..

Archive for the ‘Music’ Category

Battered and torn
Still I can see the light
Tattered and worn
But I must kneel to fight

Friend of mine
What can’t you spare
I know sometimes
It gets cold in there

When my legs no longer carry
And the warm wind chills my bones
I just reach for mother Mary
And I shall not walk alone

Hope is alive
While we’re apart
Only tears
Speak from my heart
Break the chains
That hold us down
And we shall be
Forever bound

And when I’m tired and weary
And a long, long way from home
I just reach for mother Mary
And I shall not walk alone

Beauty that
We left behind
How shall we
Tomorrow find

Set aside
Our weight in sin
So that we
Can live again

When my legs no longer carry
And the warm wind chills my bones
I just reach for mother Mary
And I shall not walk alone
And I shall not walk alone
And I shall not walk alone
I shall not walk alone

Where were you when I was burned and broken
While the days slipped by from my window watching
Where were you when I was hurt and I was helpless
Because the things you say and the things you do surround me
While you were hanging yourself on someone elses words
Dying to believe in what you heard
I was staring straight into the shining sun

Lost in thought and lost in time
While the seeds of live and the seeds of change were planted

Outside the rain fell dark and slow
While I pondered on this dangerous but
I took a heavenly ride through one silence
I knew the moment had arrived
For killing the past and coming back to life

I took a heavenly ride trough our silence
I knew the waiting had begin
And headed straight… into the shining sun … ..

Turn down the lights, turn down the bed
Turn down these voices inside my head
Lay down with me, tell me no lies
Just hold me close, don’t patronize
Don’t patronize me

‘Cause I can’t make you love me If you don’t
You can’t make your heart feel something it won’t
Here in the dark in these final hours
I will lay down my heart, and I’ll feel the power
But you won’t, no you won’t
And I can’t make you love me
If you don’t . .. ..

I’ll close my eyes and then I won’t see
The love you do not feel, when you’re holding me
Morning will come, and I’ll do what’s right
Just give me till then, to give up this fight
And I will give up this fight

And I can’t make you love me if you don’t
You can’t make your heart feel something it won’t
And here in the dark in these final hours
I will lay down my heart and I’ll feel the power
But you won’t, no, you won’t
And I can’t make you love me
If you don’t .. .. ..

Ain’t no use in you trying
It’s no good for me baby without love
All my tears, all these years, everything I believed in ….
Baby
Oh yeah
Someone’s gonna love me . .. ..

Ankhon main sapne liye ..
Ghar se hum chal to diye ..
Jaane yeh raahen ab le jayengi kahaan ..
Mitti ki khushbu aaye ..
Palkon pe aansu laaye ..
Palkon pe reh jaayega yaadon ka jahaan ..
Manzil nayi hai
Anjaana hai karwaan . ..
Chalna akele hain yahaan .. ..
Tanha dil .. tanha safar ..
Dhoonde tujhe phir kyun nazar … ???
Dilkash nazaare dekhe ..
Jhilmil sitare dekhe ..
Aankhon main phir bhi chehra hai jawaan
Kitni barsaatein aayien
Kitni saughaatein laayien
Kaanon main goonje phir bhi teri hi sada ..
Waade kiye they apna hoga aashiyan ..
Waadon ka jaane hoga kya …
Tanha dil .. tanha safar ..
Dhoonde tujhe phir kyun nazar …

Yakeen …

Posted on: May 20, 2006

There are some songs which you like without you knowing why … Yakeen is one of them .. I love this song .. Its sung by Atif Aslam ..

Aaj dil dukha hai .. Tum yaad aaye …
Anjaane log hain .. Apne kahaan dhoond paayein …

Jaage hain .. soye nahin .. Aisi hai mere yeh bechaini ..
Din bhi wahi .. raatein wahin. … saanson main saansen hain nahi …

Shaamein ab dhalti nahin .. Anchal jo tera simat jaaye ..
Aa ab yahaan hamesha rahein .. Doori rahe na hon faasle …

Jaage hain soye nahi .. Aisi hai meri yeh bechaini ..
Din bhi wahi .. raatein wahein .. saanson main saanse hain nahi .. ..

Ab agar tum miley to .. Itna yakeen hain …
Hans denge hum to … Rona nahien hai .. !

You can download it from Atif Aslam’s website.

Hmm.. Been hell busy these days .. But now thats life .. You dont get time . . You have to take time out .. Anyways .. On a sudden impulse, I thought I should share one of my fav songs .. Its called “Jhonka Hawa ka” from the movie Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam .. It makes me very senti .. 😦 … I love it …
Here it goes :

Jhonka hawa ka aaj bhi
zulfen uraata hoga na ..
Tera dupatta aaj bhi tere
sar se sarakta hoga na …
Baalon main tere aaj bhi
phool koi sajta hoga na … .. . ..

Thandi hawaayein raaton main tujhko
thapkiyaan deti hogi na ..
Chaand ki thandak khwaabon main tujhko
leke to jaati to hogi na ….
Sooraj ki kirnay subah ko teri
neenden uraati hogi na …

Mere khayaalon main sanam
khud se hi baatein karti hogi na ….
Main dekhta hoon chhup chhup ke tum ko
mehsoos karti hogi na ….

Jhonka hawa ka aaj bhi zulfen uraata hoga na …

Kaaghaz pe meri tasveer jaise
kuchh to banaati hogi na …
Ulat palat ke dekh ke usko
jee bhar ke hansti hogi na ….
Hanste hanste aankhen tumhari
bhar bhar aati hogi na …..
Mujhko dhakaa tha dhoop main jis se
woh aanchal bhigoti hogi na …
Saawan ki rim jhim
mera taraana yaad dilati hogi na ….
Ek ek meri baatein tumko
yaad to aati hogi na …
Yaad to aati hogi na …..
Yaad to aati hogi na … ?

Kya tum mere in sab sawaalon ka
kuch to jawaab dogi na ..?

Just to let everyone know that I am still alive (Zinda) and kicking … All these days I’ve been very busy.. Done so much .. 😛 .. Gave many interviews, took many journeys, watched so many movies ..  Got job in SBI (Thanks to everyone who wished me luck and who prayed for me), will be finishing CCNA soon .. this and that … 😛 ..

Anyways, These days I am hooked to pakistani music … Man I love Strings and Fuzon … I wanted to quote this particular song as my comeback .. 😛 :

Yeh hai meri kahani .. Khaamosh zindagaani …
Sannaata keh raha hai .. Kyun zulm seh raha hai …
Ek daastaan purani … Tanhaayi ki zubaani …
Har zakhm khil raha hai … Kuchh mujhse keh raha hai …
Chubhte kaanten yaadon ke daaman se chunta hoon ..
Girti deewaron ke aanchal main zinda hoon .. ..

Bus yeh meri kahani .. Benishaan nishaani ..
Ek dard beh raha hai .. Kuch mujh se keh raha hai …
Chubhte kaante yaadon ke daaman se chunta hooon …
Girti deewaron ke aanchal main zindaa hoon .. ..

Bajaye pyar ki shabnam, mere gulistan main ..
Baraste rehte hain har simt maut ke saaye ..
Syahiyon se ulajh parti hain meri aankhen ..
Koi nahi .. koi bhi nahi jo bataye kitni der ujaalon ki raah dekhni hai ..
Koi nahi .. hai koi bhi nahi na paas na dooor ..
Ek yaar hai dil ki dharkan .. apni chaahat ka jo elaan kiye jaati hai ..
Zindagi hai jo jiye jaati hai … Khoon ke ghoont piye jaati hai …
Khwaab kaanton se siye jaati hai …. .. .

Ab na koi paas hai .. phir bhi ehsaas hai …
Syaahiyon main uljhi pari .. jeene ki ek aas hai ….
Yaadon ka jangal yeh dil … kaanton se jal thal yeh dil ….
Chubhte kaanten yaadon ke daaman se chunta hooon …
Girti deewaaron ke aanchal main zinda hoon … .. ..

Lol .. Dont get the thought that I am feeling emotionally down or something .. I aint ..  I just like this song .. 😛

Promise to be more regular from now on ..  ……
