Kabhi kabhi... (Hindi)

Excuse me for singing in a language much alien to you. This is a song in a language called Hindi, one of the 20+ languages in my country and officially declared as the national language by the Govt.

Ah! Let my friends not hear this for they'd beat me to pulp if they hear me sing this song again! At least that's their threat. I can't blame them for threatening me so for I've sung this song on and off stage, I don't know how many times. People've become sick of listening to me sing this song but I still love this melodious piece.

Twenty Years Ago... (English)

What prompted me to sing this song is the comment left by Kaiserin Sisi who said the last song that I sang brought back memories "from the old good days". Ah! This is my fav. of the fav. Kenny Rogers song and that's simply for the reason that this song won me a prize in a district level music competition. And that was my first on-stage rendition of a song in a foreign language. Can't forget that day!!!

But hi! Look at this. 7 years back, some queer little boy, hardly 20 years of age, got on stage and sang a song that went, "life was so much easier, twenty years ago..."!!! Obviously, I guess. 'coz twenty years before I first sang that song, I or God was only contemplating to get me into my mom's womb! Life, truly should have been much more easier then (both for me and the others, I guess!).

Anyways... Here's the lyrics for the song, for those who're interested:

It`s been a long time since I walked
Through this old town
But oh how the memories start to flow
And there`s the old movie house
They finally closed it down
You could find me there every Friday night
Twenty years ago.

I worked the counter at the drugstore down the street
But nobody`s left there I would know
On Saturday mornings that`s where
All my friends would meet
You`d be surprised to know what a dime would buy
Twenty years ago.

All my memories from those days come gather round me
What I`d give if they could take me back in time
It almost seems like yesterday
Where do the good times go?
Life was so much easier twenty years ago.

I guess I should stop by Mr. Johnson`s hardware store
His only son was my friend Joe
But he joined the army back in 1964
How could we know he would never come back
Twenty years ago...

Crazy... (English)

First of all, let me thank all of you who took the pain to listen to my previous song and comment on it too! Well, that was a big encouragement. And here's yet another Kenny Rogers song.

Here I go - "Crazy for you..."

Girl, there are no words to say, 
What I feel in my heart.
And you. You're on my mind night and day.
And it hurts me when we're apart.
When you're not here by my side.
There is nothing in this world for me.

I guess I'm crazy, crazy for you can't you see? 
And although you may think it's crazy, 
Here is where I want to be,
I will always need your love,

Well now, I can see every dream, 
When I look in your eyes.
And though things never are what they seem.
There is one thing that I realize,
That there's no doubt in my mind, 
We can make this love go on forever.

I guess I'm crazy, crazy for you can't you see? 
And although you may think I'm crazy,
Here is where I'll always be,
And I need you with me,
'coz you are the dream, 
That finally came true for me.

And all my life there'll be no one else. 
If I looked all my life,
There could be no one else.

And for the rest of my life,
All I need is you...

You Decorated My Life... (English)

This is a song by Kenny Rogers and one of my favs.

Kindly excuse the funny accent that I have while I sing in English.

For those who're interested, here's the lyrics for the song:

All my life was a paper once plain, pure and white.
Till you moved with your pen changin' moods now and then,
Till the balance was right.
Then you added some music, ev'ry note was in place,
And anybody could see all the changes in me, by the look on my face.

And you decorated my life, created a world where dreams area apart,
And you decorated my life by paintin' your love all over my heart,
You decorated my life.

Like a rhyme with no reason in an unfinished song,
There was no harmony life meant nothin' to me, until you cam along.
And you brought out the colors, what a gentle surprise?
Now I'm able to see all the things life can be shinin' soft in your eyes.

And you decorated my life, created a world where dreams are a part,
And you decorated my life by paintin' your love all over my heart,
You decorated my life.
