Two songs…

An apt song for a miserable English Sunday!

Saturday Sun by Nick Drake

Saturday sun came early one morning
In a sky so clear and blue
Saturday sun came without warning
So no-one knew what to do.
Saturday sun brought people and faces
That didnt seem much in their day
But when I remember those people and places
They were really too good in their way.
In their way
In their way
Saturday sun wont come and see me today.

Think about stories with reason and rhyme
Circling through your brain.
And think about people in their season and time
Returning again and again
And again
And again
And saturdays sun has turned to sundays rain.

So sunday sat in the saturday sun
And wept for a day gone by.

And one of my favourites from Sajda (Jagjit & Lata’s Album)

मिली हवाओं में उड्ने by वसिम बरेल्भि, sung by जगजीत सिंह और लता मंगेसकर

मिली हवाओं में उड्ने कि वो सजा यारो
के मैं जमीन के रिस्तों से कट गया यारो

वो बेखयाल मुसाफिर मैं रास्ता यारो
कहाँ था बस में मेरे उसको रोक्ना यारो

मेरे कलम पे जमाने की गर्द ऐसी थी
के अपने बारे में कुछ भि ना लिख सका यारो

तमाम सेहेर हि जिस्की तलाश में गुम था
मैं उस्के घर का पता किस्से पूछ्ता यारो
