you can make the whole world sing

for a few days now i’ve been repeatedly listening to this song on my iPod

i remember when i had first seen the video of this song back in 1997 december on mtv and how calm it made me feel.

there’s a little magic in the song, you can shut your eyes and really feel at peace with everyone in the world – even if you’re heartbroken, or you are happily together :)

here, listen to it and find out for yourself:

show the world and all its people
all the wonders love can bring
give us strength and understanding
give us all one song to sing
let the music play
play it loud and make it clear
its time to stand up
to a new world that is now so near
from the bottom to the top
to the leaders of the land
we all have one heart
everyone of us must lend a hand
and let there be joy in the world
and let there be no sorrow
(let there be)
and let there be peace on earth
and let there be peace on earth
for all the world
weve got to see

that love, oh love
what a blessed thing (oh, yeah)
say it loud
make it clear today
all the walls are falling down
no more children off to war
if we search in our hearts
all the suffering will be no more
and let there be joy in the world
and let there be no sorrow
for all gods children
let them see
that love, oh love
what a blessed thing (oh, yeah)
say it loud
make it clear today
and freedom, no more lies
we can save this world if we try
one world i know we can make it
yes, its only in your heart
yes, its only in your dreams
you can climb the highest mountains
you can make the whole world sing
love, oh love
what a blessed thing (oh, yeah)
say it loud
make it clear today

what does it take?

It’s been days now, no matter how hard or consciously I try, I just cannot seem to get this song out of my head… it’s been paying and playing constantly in my head despite of how deeply I try and get myself involved in something…

Here goes for whatever that matters:

Hum bewafa hargiz na the
Par hum wafa kar naa sake
Humko mili uski sazaa
Hum jo khata kar naa sake
Hum bewafa hargiz na the
Par hum wafa kar naa sake

Kitni akeli thi woh rahen hum jinpe
Ab tak akele chalte rahen
Tujhse bichhad ke bhi o bekhabar
Tere hi gham mein jalte rahen
Tune kiya jo shiwa
Hum woh gila kar naa sake
Hum bewafa hargiz na the
Par hum wafa kar naa sake

Tumne jo dekha suna sach tha magar
Itna tha sach yeh kisko pataa
Jaane tumhe maine koi dhokha diya
Jaane tumhe koi dhokha hua
Is pyaar mein sach jhooth kaa
Tum faisla kar naa sake
Hum bewafa hargiz na the
Par hum wafa kar naa sake

overlook this supposed crime

where do i begin, to tell the story of how true love can be….

***yeah right!***

so much for eric segal and his mouthful of load!

right now, it’s utopia and me trying to attune to getting my hands clean!

alanis – hands clean: listen to this song here
(you need real player for this)


if it weren’t for your maturity none of this would have happened
if you weren’t so wise beyond your years i would’ve been able to control myself
if it weren’t for my attention you wouldn’t have been successful and
if it weren’t for me you would never have amounted to very much

ooh this could be messy
but you don’t seem to mind
ooh don’t go telling everybody
and overlook this supposed crime

we’ll fast forward to a few years later
and no one knows except the both of us
and i have honored your request for silence
and you’ve washed your hands clean of this

you’re essentially an employee and i like you having to depend on me
you’re kind of my protege and one day you’ll say you learned all you know from me
i know you depend on me like a young thing would to a guardian
i know you sexualise me like a young thing would and i think i like it

ooh this could get messy
but you don’t seem to mind
ooh don’t go telling everybody
and overlook this supposed crime

we’ll fast forward to a few years later
and no one knows except the both of us
and i have honored your request for silence
and you’ve washed your hands clean of this

what part of our history’s reinvented and under rug swept?
what part of your memory is selective and tends to forget?
what with this distance it seems so obvious?

just make sure you don’t tell on me especially to members of your family
we best keep this to ourselves and not tell any members of our inner posse
i wish i could tell the world cuz you’re such a pretty thing when you’re done up properly
i might want to marry you one day if you watch that weight and keep your firm body

ooh this could be messy and
ooh i don’t seem to mind
ooh don’t go telling everybody
and overlook this supposed crime
