in my head...

This used to be my playground (used to be)
This used to be my childhood dream
This used to be the place I ran to
Whenever I was in need
Of a friend

Why did it have to end
And why do they always say

Don't look back
Keep your head held high

Don't ask them why
Because life is short
And before you know
You're feeling old
And your heart is breaking
Don't hold on to the past
Well that's too much to ask

I love this of the few precious by the lady...I dont have much time for the past, but this brings back happy moments..

woh kaagaz ki kashti, woh baarish ka paani...the mind has a tendency to benchmark...and happiness is a state of being beyond the realms of the mind...nice lyrics...

Phoenix said...

sundar, you nailed it...and I thik the mind has a funny way of making the past glow, sweeping all the unpleasantness there might have been way under the carpet!
