Song of Bangladesh


Bangladesh, Bangladesh
Bangladesh, Bangladesh
When the sun sinks in the west
Die a million people of the Bangladesh

The story of Bangladesh
Is an ancient one again made fresh
By blind men who carry out commands
Which flow out of the laws upon which nation stands
Which is to sacrifice a people for a land

Bangladesh, Bangladesh
Bangladesh, Bangladesh
When the sun sinks in the west
Die a million people of the Bangladesh

Once again we stand aside
And watch the families crucified
See a teenage mother’s vacant eyes
As she watches her feeble baby try
To fight the monsoon rains and the cholera flies

And the students at the university
Asleep at night quite peacefully
The soldiers came and shot them in their beds
And terror took the dorm awakening shrieks of dread
And silent frozen forms and pillows drenched in red

Bangladesh, Bangladesh
Bangladesh, Bangladesh
When the sun sinks in the west
Die a million people of the Bangladesh

Did you read about the army officer’s plea
For donor’s blood? It was given willingly
By boys who took the needles in their veins
And from their bodies every drop of blood was drained
No time to comprehend and there was little pain

And so the story of Bangladesh
Is an ancient one again made fresh
By all who carry out commands
Which flow out of the laws upon which nations stand
Which say to sacrifice a people for a land

Bangladesh, Bangladesh
Bangladesh, Bangladesh
When the sun sinks in the west
Die a million people of the Bangladesh

Written, tuned, and sung by American folk singer Joan Baez. She performed it at “Concert for Bangladesh” in Madison Square Garden in 1971. The song was originally named “The Story of Bangladesh”, but renamed later on.

Are You On Twitter?


You’re no one if you’re not on Twitter
And if you aren’t there already you’ve missed it
If you haven’t been bookmarked, retweeted and blogged
You might as well not have existed

In the old days it was all about achievements
Collecting all your trophies in a shrine
Then everybody came across the internet
And suddenly you had to be online

A home page was all you really needed
To seem like a success but not a geek
As long as you updated semi-annually
And checked your email once or twice a week

You’re no one if you’re not on Twitter…
Technology was moving rather quickly
And the next thing you needed was a blog
With intimate and detailed press releases
And now and then a photo of your dog

More recently the students brought us Facebook
And everybody has a hundred friends
The parties in the photos look amazing
They’re not so great but everyone pretends

You’re no one if you’re not on Twitter…

Now you need to publish every movement
And every single thought to cross your mind
I’m told the Twitterverse is full of rubbish
But most of us are actually quite refined

We validate each other’s insecurities
And brag about the gadgets that we’ve bought
We laugh out loud at every hint of jolliness
And try to self-promote without being caught

You’re no one if you’re not on Twitter…

Follow me on Twitter!

This awesome geek song written and sang by Ben Walker. Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!

And oh, feel free to add me Twitter!

After the Flame


How many days since we’ve spoken
How many times have you tried
To mend the pieces of my broke-broken heart

Don’t tell me everything’s over
Don’t take the sun from my eye
It’s much too late to be alone

When our love grows old
And the flower gets cold
I will scream out, should I live
Til there is no room to die

When the colors fade, on the world we’ve made
I will keep on trying, long after the flame is dying

Too late, too long to mention
Too wide to keep it inside
This renovation of my wound-wounded soul

You are the wind of adventure
You are the sun in my eye
You are the one who keeps me whole

One of favourite songs by ATB, 9th track from the album “No Silence”.

Truly Madly Deeply


I’ll be your dream, I’ll be your wish, I’ll be your fantasy
I’ll be your hope, I’ll be your love, be everything that you need
I love you more with every breath, truly madly deeply do
I will be strong, I will be faithful, cause I’m counting on

A new beginning
A reason for living
A deeper meaning

I want to stand with you on a mountain
I want to bathe with you in the sea
I want to lay like this forever
Until the sky falls down on me

And when the stars are shining brightly in the velvet sky
I’ll make a wish send it to heaven then make you want to cry
The tears of joy for all the pleasure in the certainty
That we’re surrounded by the comfort and protection of
The highest powers

In lonely hours
The tears devour you
Oh can’t you see it baby?
You don’t have to close your eyes
Cause it’s standing right here before you

Sang by Savage Garden, one of my all time favourite bands. I fell in love with this song once again after listening to the remake by Cascada from her “Everytime We Touch” album (track # 10). Cascada rocks!

Listen to the Falling Rain


Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain
Telling me just what a fool I’ve been
I wish that it would go and let me cry in vain
And let me be alone again.

The only girl I care about has gone away
Lookin’ for a brand new start
But little does she know that when she left that day
Along with her she took my heart.

Rain please tell me now does that seem fair
For her to steal my heart away when she don’t care
I can’t love another when my heart’s somewhere far away.
