Too Much Love Will Kill You

I’m just the pieces of the man I used to be
Too many bitter tears are raining down on me
I’m far away from home
And I’ve been facing this alone
For much too long
I feel like no-one ever told the truth to me
About growing up and what a struggle it would be
In my tangled state of mind
Ive been looking back to find
Where I went wrong.

Too much love will kill you
If you can’t make up your mind
Torn between the lover
And the love you leave behind
You’re headed for disaster
Cause you never read the signs
Too much love will kill you
Every time…

Suicide is Painless

Through early morning fog I see
Visions of the things to be
The pains that are withheld for me
I realize and I can see…

That suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
And I can take or leave it if I please.

The game of life is hard to play
I’m gonna to lose it anyway
The losing card I’ll someday lay
So this is all I have to say…

That suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
And I can take or leave it if I please.

The sword of time will pierce our skins
It doesn’t hurt when it begins
But as it works its way on in
The pain grows stronger, watch it grin.

And suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
and I can take or leave it if I please.

A brave man once requested me
To answer questions that are the key,
“Is it to be or not to be?”
and I replied “oh why ask me?”

And suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
and I can take or leave it if I please.

And you can do the same thing if you please…

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!

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.

তুমি আর তো কারো নও, শুধু আমার
যত দূরে সরে যাও রবে আমার
স্তব্ধ সময়টাকে ধরে রেখে
স্মৃতির পাতায় শুধু তুমি আমার

কেন আজ এত একা আমি?
আলো হয়ে দূরে তুমি
আলো আলো আমি কখনও খুজে পাবে না
চাঁদের আলো তুমি কখনও আমার হবে না

রোমন্থন করি ফেলে আসা দৃশ্যপট স্বপ্নে আঁকা
লুকিয়ে তুমি কোন সুদূরে
হয়ত ভবিষ্যতের আড়ালে
তবে আজ এত একা কেন?
আলো হয়ে দূরে তুমি
ঘাসের চাদরে শুয়ে একা
আকাশের পানে চেয়ে জেগে থাকা…

This is the first track of Tahsan’s third solo album “Ichche”, released last week. I’ve been listening to this song non-stop for the last 8 hours, and thought of sharing it with my readers. I’m dedicating it to a very special person — hope she understands what I want to mean.
