Any other World - Mika

In any other world
You could tell the difference
And let it all unfurl
Into broken remnants

Smile like you mean it
And let yourself let go

Cos it's all in the hands of a bitter, bitter man
Say goodbye to the world you thought you lived in
Take a bow, play the part of a lonely lonely heart
Say goodbye to the world you thought you lived in
To the world you thought you lived in

I tried to live alone
But lonely is so lonely, alone
So human as I am
I had to give up my defenses

So I smiled and tried to mean it
To let myself let go

Cos it's all in the hands of a bitter, bitter man
Say goodbye to the world you thought you lived in
Take a bow, play the part of a lonely lonely heart
Say goodbye to the world you thought you lived in
To the world you thought you lived in

Cos it's all in the hands of a bitter, bitter man
Say goodbye to the world you thought you lived in
Take a bow, play the part of a lonely lonely heart
Say goodbye to the world you thought you lived in
To the world you thought you lived in

Say goodbye to the world you thought you lived in [x2]
Say goodbye

In any other world
You could tell the difference

"I never ever, I forget my story.
My face is not sad, but sometimes, I am sad."

Mika : "There is a little spoken introduction that many people may miss.

It's a family friend of mine who lost her eye during the war in Lebanon and I realized in everyone's life there comes one point, or several points, where something happens and you have to completely change the way you have lived your life because of one event.

And it really makes you re-adjust and rethink and rejudge parts of your life all over again.

That happens to some people in a dramatic way like Rafa who lost both her eye and her husband within six months. Or it can be in a much quieter way like when you are 22-years-old and you finally leave university after being in education all your life or when you lose your job.

I wanted to put that in the song, because when you're 68 or 14, it's still the same feeling and it's still just as hard.

I wanted to try to capture that quite difficult period that people have to go through at least once in their life."

It's one of my favorites. I don't know how you relate to it, or whether you relate to it or not,but, i can relate to it in more than one ways. 
My take on the song is , when you are made to face the HARSH REALITY (and someday you definitely will, if you haven't as yet ) , when you just feel helpless, don't try to control it because certain things/situations are  just irrepressible .SO, do not let yourself be bowled over and get caught up in that situation, learn to move on, let go, be strong and try your best to get over it, rub it off and Smile Like You Mean it. 
After all, you won't know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.Let's see it this way, Such situations would just help you become more resilient and prepare you to face similar situations coming your way.

That's Life ! And...... It's frikkin' BEAUTIFUL , all the bitterness you had/have to swallow , It sure as hell is worth IT.
You'll see ! :)

(worries never get us anywhere, except,  probably therapy sessions with psychiatrists ?!) :P

Lots of intense Love,

love to L.O.V.E. you baebey !

"Mohabbat bhi zindagi ki tarah hoti hai, har mod aasan nahi hota, har mod par khushi nahi milti.... Par jab hum zindagi ka saath nahi chodte to hum mohabbat ka saath kyon chhode."

“AAJ ....aaj ek zindagi aur jeelo .aaj ek hasin aur baathlo,

aaj ek sapna aur dekhlo , aaj ek aason aur peelo

aaj ek dua aur maanglo ... AAJ ...kya pata....... kal ho na ho"

“Koi pyaar kare to tumse kare..Tum jaise ho waise kare..Koi tumko badalke pyar kare to woh pyar nahin , sauda hota hai.. Aur saheba pyar mein sauda nahin hota.. right??”

“tumhare hath mein likha hai ki tumhara mr. perfect tumhare samne rahega phir bhi tum use pehchaan nahin paogi”

“Ekk baar, bas ekk bar meri aankhon main aankhen daal kay kahe do ki tum mujh say pyar nahi kartey”

"Pyar...pyar dosti hai..aur agar woh meri sab se achhi dost nahiin ban sakti toh mein ussay kabhi pyar kar hi nahiin simple..pyar dosti hai"

“Pyar ek khoobsurat ehsaas hai jo hamari zindagi mein ek hawa ke jhonke ki tarah aata hai aur hamari zindagi ka rom rom uski khushboo se mahek uthta hai.”

“Dosti pyar ka pehla kadam hota hai. Hum pehla kadam to utha lete hain lekin doosra kadam uthane se itna darte kyun hain. Doosra kadam baddha kar dekho- har mushkil asaan ho jayegi aur har manzil tumhe khud ba khud mil jayegi”

“Pyar sirf paaney ka naam nahi hai....pyar ka doosra naam kurbaani hai!!!!”

“Agar tumhara pyarr jana chahe to usay jaane do, Agar woh laut kar aaye toh woh tumhara hai.”

“agar tum mujhe aise hi dekhti rahogi ... toh tumhe mujhse pyar ho jayega”

“Tere dil mein meri saanson ko Panaah mil jaaye, teri ishq mein meri jaan Fanaa ho jaaye !”

“mujhe kaise pataa chale gaa ke woh ladki koun hai jo mere liye banayi gayi hai... i mean jab woh saamne aayegi toh baadal garajne lagenge, bijali chamkne lagegi, music aajayegaa kya hoga?

Woh tumhe batayegaa woh ladki koun hai. woh tumhe ek ishaaraa dikhaye gaa aur tumaraa dil samaj jaayega ke woh ladki koun hai”

Kuch kuch hota hai darling, tum nahin samjhoge ! ;)

I knowww…. “i-n-t-e-n-s-e” it is!!  It took me quite some time to find these clichéd dialogues.
AS DRAMATIC AS I AM .. I love the "love cliches" ..  “pyar kiya nahin jaata, ho jaata hai” tops the list!

Also, my super favorite lines from the song "gulabi aankhein- mohammed rafi"
but , it sounds awesome when atif sings it... <3 skip <3

- "zara sa hass ke, jo dekha tune
main tera bismill.. ho gayaaa
sambhaalo mujhko, oh mere yaaro ,
sambhalna mushkil ho gayaa
gulabi aankhein jo teri dekhi ..sharabi yeh dil.. ho gayaaa " :)

(HEY YOU, Mr.Prince charming, you'd better mug it and sing it to me )

Ps: haso , jeeyo , muskurao.. khush raho.. kya pata .. kal ho naa ho!


- Wo ai ni- mandarin

- Je t'aime- French

- Ich liebe dich- german

- Ti amo- Italian

- Kimi o ai shiteru – Japanese

- Ya lyublyu tebya- Russian

- Te quiero- Spanish

And the toughest so far would be:

-'Rwy'n dy garu di….(welsh) 

How The F**ck do you even pronounce that?! But they surely use it in Y Wladfa ( that’s even tougher to pronounce)….!!


One thing that's common among all the above mentioned lines is that its the language of LOVE -
All that matters is you say it, express it, be it whatever language.. if you say it with all your heart , even an " I L U" can work wonders ! :)
Happy Valentine’s Day – today, say it like you feel it … and like always smile like you mean it :)

Lots and lots of intense-love

In the moment!

Have you ever thought –  “ahh, I wish I had said it earlier”?!
Why are we so scared or hesitant or just want to play safe (sometimes)..  to EXPRESS the RIGHT emotions  , as and when we feel it?!!
I personally feel there is no moment like “THE RIGHT MOMENT”. You would generally end up keeping it to yourself because you either don’t want to hurt the other person, or you are afraid of what response you might get, or the BIG FAT REJECTION (don’t fall prey to your EGO),or you think people can read minds?!!
We are forgetting one thing that the opposite person is just another HUMAN! Stop thinking people can read minds- communicate. Express.
He/she at some point in life might have felt just the same thing that you are feeling right now.
Self-expression is important in any relationship, doing it in the moment is even more important. Because, later you don’t want to say, “oh, I wish I could have just said/done ‘it’!” –


You want to smile at a stranger, smile, then! :)
You want to thank someone who doesn’t share a good rapport with you, but helped you in some way, thank him/her,then!
You want to say “I love you” to your grandpa say it, then!
You want to just hug your dad after having an AWESOME conversation with him, hug him, then!
You want to tell someone ‘it’s not working between us’ it ,then!
You want to say “I miss you”, say it, then!
You want to say , “I like you, let’s go out sometime” .. say it, then!
You want to say, “I could really use a hug right now”..say it, then!
You want to say “I was wrong, I am sorry”..say it, then!
You want to compliment someone- be it just an acquaintance, compliment, then!
You are hurt because your close one said/did something you didn’t expect, say it, then!

So, today, do what you want to, express what you feel. Its not as hard as you think it is. Stop thinking too much. Just rip the band-aid! You might not hear what you wanted to in return, but you don’t even want to keep it inside and let it get buried under heaps of ego or fear or hesitance.
Haven’t you heard the cliché “life is too short”? It is, and so don’t waste the moment you have NOW, because you won’t get it back EVER again in the future. Listen to your heart, help it express what it feels.  Do not wait for “the right moment”. There is no right moment, the moment is RIGHT NOW! 

Lots of intense love,
