The melody of emptiness

I wanted to write another blog with personal reflection, as a follow up to ‘where is home’. I sat down almost every evening for the last 4 weeks to put something interesting together. Thousands, if not more, of different and intermixed emotions flashed by but the page still remained blank. I couldn’t work out why and how. Ironically enough it sums up my personal reflection more accurately than I could ever scribe in words.

So, in this blog I have just got an English translation of a beautiful Hindi song that I stumbled upon during this time.

 

Song | Tanha dil tanha safar (A lonley heart, a lonely journey) | YouTube

Singer | Shaan

 

 

English translation

A lonley heart, a lonely journey

With dreams in our eyes

We went away from home

We don’t know where the road will lead us

The fragrance of the moist soil

Brings tears to our eyes

In our eyes, will only remain the world of memories

The aims are new, the concerns are unknown

Here we have to walk alone

 

A lonely heart, a lonely journey

Then why do my eyes still search for you

A lonely heart, a lonely journey

Then why do my eyes still search for you

A lonely heart

The heart has already seen beautiful scenarios

Seen the glittering stars

But still in my eyes your face remains young

So many rain came

So many blessings it brought

But in my ears your words still resound clearly

We promised each other that the world belong to us

Who knows what will happen to those promises

 

A lonely heart, a lonely journey

Then why do my eyes still search for you

A lonely heart, a lonely journey

Then why do my eyes still search for you

A lonely heart

With dreams in our eyes

We went away from home

We don’t know where the road will lead us

The fragrance of the moist soil

Brings tears to our eyes

In our eyes, will only remain the world of memories

The aims are new, the concerns are unknown

Here we have to walk alone

 

A lonely heart, a lonely journey

Then why do my eyes still search for you

A lonely heart

A lonely heart
