During the course of our life,
we give birth to many dreams… some of them go away, some are chased throughout… some dreams give rise to others… we nurture some… we discard some…. we try to make the dreams of others come true… we strangle some of our dreams… we shatter others’ dreams.
But still we dream… but still they dream…
“SWAPNO DEKHBO BOLE”, a nice song and equally a nice video. Surely one of my favourites.
Here is the translated lyrics of the song (Thanx to: Big Bang Bong)…
I’ve heard…that day, you went to touch the blue horizon
riding the waves
I’ve heard…that day, you walked alongside the salty shoreline
for miles after miles
I’ve never went to sea
never glided on blues
never glanced at the wings of a seagull
Next time, when you’ll go to the sea
will you take me along?
I’ve heard…that day you, you and you
in an ensemble, discussed many complex conundrums
and unspoken words
Why this eternal rat-race?
Why endless series of monologues?
Living on, this self centred life
if there is no love
only empty loneliness
Where can I get a dollop of peace?
Where can I?
I’ve heard…that you still get dreams
still write stories
chant music from bottom of your soul
Saga of human existence
still makes you think
Your love blossom like a rose
Today I am here at your doorstep
with this faithless soul, open arms
and bending knees…
Only emptiness in deep of my eyes,
there are no dreams in my nights
To dream I opened my eyes
to dream I opened my arms
