Simply cynical

" Will you raise me up, will you help me down?
Will you get me right out of this Godforsaken town?
Will you make it all a little less cold?
Will you hold me sacred?

Will you hold me tight?

Can you colorize my life, I'm so sick of black and white?
Can you make it all a little less old?

Will you make me some magic, with your own two hands?
Can you build an emerald city with these grains of sand?
Can you give me something I can take home?
Will you cater to every fantasy I got?

Will ya hose me down with holy water, if I get too hot?
Will you take me places I've never known?

After a while you'll forget everything
It was a brief interlude and a midsummer night's fling
And you'll say is that it's time to move on

I know the territory, I've been around
It'll all turn to dust and we'll all fall down
And sooner or later, you'll be screwing around. "

This is the part which I like best in the song, "I'd do anything for love"

i used to love this song...it was a rage when i was in school ...and we had our own twisted version of the chorus..."I will do anything for love...but i wont do *thaaat* ;)

silly schoolgirl stuff no?

My first 9 minute kiss. When I would have done, anything for love.

How are things? Not talked with you in a while.

This stupid song actually brought my spirit down. I tried to come over this by my own way.

Will you raise me up, will you help me down?
1. If you are about Shakira size, why not ?
Will you get me right out of this Godforsaken town?
2. Where there is roti, you gotta slug there.
Will you make it all a little less cold?
3. If there is electricity, sure.
Will you hold me sacred?
4. So far I would agree.
Will you hold me tight?
5. Paraya aurat ! No...
Can you colorize my life, I'm so sick of black and white?
6. No one can. You have to be happy with what you have.
Can you make it all a little less old?
7. Soul can never go stale.All else will.
Will you make me some magic, with your own two hands?
8. Depends on how much dough one has. Visa / Mastercard can help !!!
Can you build an emerald city with these grains of sand?
9. Presently Beirut city is being bombed !! What's the point.
Can you give me something I can take home?
10. Right now I can think of Pepper mill. Just let me know your address.
Will you cater to every fantasy I got?
11. No.
Will ya hose me down with holy water, if I get too hot?
12. If I am not crazy !!
Will you take me places I've never known?
13. With good IT skills, it is not impossible these days.
After a while you'll forget everything
14. No one forgets Misti, we simply avoid...
It was a brief interlude and a midsummer night's fling
15. True. I have seen more after being here. Two of close pals have separated from their loves. I wonder why ? I guess, you get to the truth here. No social pressure. No mom & dad etc.. Each one can survive well. Unemployment rate is 3 or 4 % any way.
And you'll say is that it's time to move on
16. If I am Amir Khan, yes.
I know the territory, I've been around
17. True.
It'll all turn to dust and we'll all fall down
18. Memories, experiences will not.
And sooner or later, you'll be screwing around. "
19. If I am Brad Pitt, again yes.

Bye

You surely raised my spirit. I have never actually tried to comment on anyone with so much effort.

Thanks a lot for the effort.

The worlds biggest frauds are driven by these words *i love you* or *i trust you*.. when a gal/guy tells another guy/gal.. not only he fools the other person but also the worlds, who keep lookin at 'em saying, wow what a loving couple/love birds etc.
all that matters in the end is who screwed whom and the magnitude.
All love shitt is drama to hide ur desires, lust, ambitions, corruptcy [yeah i have coined this word.. :) ]

- misunderstood

Arunima said...

@Misunderstood:I understand.

something made me post it too.

Dear Misunderstood & Arunima,

I want to add some masala. Both of you sound pretty dumped. This is where I wonder as to how should a human society be redesigned. Everybody should be living alone ! Where will the kids go ? Either no kids ! Or government has big kid farms, where you dump your corruptcy products. Everybody pays farm tax deducted at source even if you are a bramhachari.

I know of a female doctor ($200,000.00/annum) who is marrying the waiter of a hotel where she once stayed. Where is the fraud ? Or corruptcy ? How long will it last ? That's where the stuff is. Human nature is the problem. I was dumped once too. The pal of mine who used to bring this girl (I loved) was actually having fun, where I was paying for the dinner/drinks. However, I still think the picture you painted is pretty pessimistic. I agree that people are after ambition, power etc.. But you can decide the game that you wish to paly with your life.

Hi,Arunima,that's an interesting set of lyrics.:)...how do you manage to jot down the lyrics?Or,do you go the google way,as I do,when I'm looking for lyrics?

Arunima said...

@Mungeri: I love your attitude to life.

Just start with your kids in the farm.
I have a friend who shares the opinion with you. He has asked his friends to adopt his child if they have one by mistake.

seriously_frivolous said...

Strictly for my friends said...

Really nice lines. Though I love listening to music, I rarely pay attention to the lyrics!!

Pallavi said...

Hey Arunima what else is new.. ? :) how are you

Reminded me of an old Rod Stewart number. Here's how it goes:

Some guys have all the luck
Some guys have all the pain
Some guys get all the breaks
Some guys do nothing but complain

Alone in a crowd on a bus after work
and I'm dreaming
The guy next to me has a girl in his arms
My arms are empty
How does it feel when the girl next to you
says she loves you
It seem so unfair when there's love everywhere
but there's none for me

Someone to take on a walk by the lake
Lord let it be me
Someone who's shy
Someone who'll cry at sad movies
I know I would die if I ever found out
she was fooling me
You're just a dream and as real as it seems
I ain't that lucky


All of my friends have a ring on their finger
They have someone
Someone to care for them it ain't fair
I got no one
The car overheated
I called up and pleaded
There's help on the way
I called you collect you didn't accept
You had nothing to say


But if you were here with me
I'd feel so happy I could cry
You are so dear to me
I just can't let you say goodbye
