The Lyrics Page

There used to be a time when I listened to a lot of Indirock. All these songs that weren’t so well-known. The type of songs that wouldn’t turn up a lot of results on Search. And back then, I wasn’t adept at searching the Web, so it was a matter of surprise when I ended up with the lyrics of any Indian non-movie song save Bhangra-ish ones, or the remixes.

And I’ve also noticed that many people end up here searching for the lyrics of one of the songs I’ve fleetingly mentioned in one or more of the posts here. So.. well… here I post lyrics of some of the songs I’ve enjoyed over the years, and here’s hoping it helps atleast some people in some way.

1. Tide

Artiste: Vasundhara Das and Smoke [Ashu and Dhruv]

Album: Channel [V] Jammin!

Tide,

Fallin’

Like you always have

Driftin’ in and out of me..

Callin’

Like you always have,

Archangel, can’t you see..

If the tide is ominous,

and you are wondering why

Dark waters drown your tears

And steal the voice of your cry

If you think you’re losing ground,

Take me with you when you go

If you think you’re falling down,

I’ll hold you hand

And won’t let go…

See the fire

in your eyes

realize

through the skies

you will fly-y.

See the glow

In your soul

And I know

Through the mire

You will ri-ise.

Tide..

Fallin’

Like you always have,

Driftin’ in and out of me..

Callin’,

Like you always have,

Archangel, can’t you see..

Drift past my eyes

Into the wakin’ of the sun

Lift up your guise

And let yourself come undone

If you think you’re losing ground,

Take me with you when you go

If you think you’re falling down,

I’ll hold your hand, and won’t let go..

2. Guiding Star

Artiste: Colonial Cousins

Album: Aatma

Some say right, and some say wrong,

Tell me where to go..

Trust my heart, or trust my mind,

I just want to know..

Guiding Star, I’m just following you…

 

Should I run, or should I stay,

Should I walk away?

I’ll just hold on to my belief,

Though I’m here to stay

Guiding star, I’m just following you..

 

I’ve been tryin’ to hold my ground, so long..

Tryin’ to make them understand my song…

I’ve been tryin’ to hold my ground so-o lo-o-ng,

Guiding star…

You’re the one who knows where I’m at again..

 

Give me strength, give me hope,

To do all that I must do..

Show me light to see the way,

‘Coz all I see is you..

Guiding star, I’m just following you….
