it’s not easy to be me

i can’t stand to fly
i’m not that naive
i’m just out to find
the better part of me

i’m more than a bird…i’m more than a plane
more than some pretty face beside a train
it’s not easy to be me

wish that i could cry
fall upon my knees
find a way to lie
about a home i’ll never see

it may sound absurd…but don’t be naive
even heroes have the right to bleed
i may be disturbed…but won’t you concede
even heroes have the right to dream
it’s not easy to be me

up, up and away…away from me
it’s all right…you can all sleep sound tonight
i’m not crazy…or anything…

i can’t stand to fly
i’m not that naive
men weren’t meant to ride
with clouds between their knees

i’m only a man in a silly red sheet
digging for kryptonite on this one way street
only a man in a funny red sheet
looking for special things inside of me
inside of me
inside me
yeah, inside me
inside of me

i’m only a man
in a funny red sheet
i’m only a man
looking for a dream

i’m only a man
in a funny red sheet
and it’s not easy, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm…

its not easy to be me

all that we wish

can’t stop listening to this song – it’s been more than 2 hours that this song has been playing in “repeat” mode!!!

i wonder what am i really trying to extrude from it?

shut the lights, close the curtains, light up a candle & listening to it – maybe you’ll know why!

lucky ali – sifar : listen to this song here
(you need real player for this)

baadlon ki gehrai may sochay kya huzoor
oonchay oonchay chehray hay
zameen say kitnay door
aahen bharti hay ye thhandi hawa
aisay rangeen raho may ab humko kya hua

chaand say taron ka hay aapas ka fasla
beech may ye gehna hai ye gehna duniya
is duniya ko kehtay majboor
mita diya khud hasti ko
ye hay kiska kasoor

tamanna hay yahi ki aisay yoon kabhi
hum basaye koi naya jaha
aashna ho ye dil pyar kay kaabil
saaz aisi bhi ho sunay jahan
musafir ko milay raasta
zamanay ko milay vaasta

kaisay kaisay parvaano ki baatay mashhoor
jaisay ye nazaranay hay waisay hay ye surur
hay yakin dil may subah aayegi zaroor
mitega ye andhera hoga har ik shay may noor

pyar karte idhar
yaar bantay idhar
daastanay sifar suno jahan
ye bhi honge khaffa
kya pata kya gila
har kadam pe milay koi naya
musafir ko…

for what it’s worth

i wish i could listen to this right now – been humming it all day – like it’s stuck in my head!

another turning point;
a fork stuck in the road.

time grabs you by the wrist;
directs you where to go.

so make the best of this test
and don’t ask why.

it’s not a question
but a lesson learned in time.

it’s something unpredictable
but in the end it’s right.
i hope you had the time of your life.

so take the photographs
and still frames in your mind.

hang it on a shelf
in good health and good time.

tattoos of memories
and dead skin on trial.

for what it’s worth,
it was worth all the while.

it’s something unpredictable
but in the end it’s right.
i hope you had the time of your life.

it’s something unpredictable
but in the end it’s right.
i hope you had the time of your life.
