I feel lost, why is my heart in this state?
All my dreams are blurred and my thoughts are entangled
All the buds have died and only colors are left as their memories
The house of sand has been washed away by the waves
Lyricist, Javed Akhtar paints a vivid picture with his words here. When you build a house on sand, the foundations will always be weak. Probably suggesting that, the moments that the lovers shared was only temporary since it lacked a strong foundation.
This is what he had to say about Hindi music scene- “When songs are made without a context and when they have no real content, they will never last in our collective memory”
Yesterday the way was lit up by lamps and a garden filled with flowers in front of me
Who shall I talk to? Who will listen? Why have I chosen thorns?
Why are my dreams lost? Why is there a new found sadness in my heart?
TRIVIA- The singer of this song, Anusha Mani worked on a collaborative album with producer Amit Trivedi . However the album was never released
I can’t explain why my heart is sad
Now there is nobody near or far
Where are the conversations that touched the heart?
Those days and night are no longer there
The past is now like a dream and my heart is now restless
TRIVIA- This song has multiple references to the heart. Speaking of hearts, the blue whale has the largest heart in the world. the heart weighs over 1500 pounds
