the same something- a little longer

More goose flesh- this song is so beautiful that it hurts- maybe because it speaks of a happiness so deep that it... hurts ( Is happiness as moving as sadness?..Or does happiness touch us only because of (or when there is) the accompanying fear of losing it?..*shudder*)

Aaj kal paon zameen par
Nahin padte mere
Bolon dekha hai khabhi tumne
mujhe udte hue

Nowadays my feet
don't touch the ground...
Tell me,
Have you ever caught me flying?

Again, something is lost, not so much because of language, but because the music adds so much to the lyrics of this song.

Edit: here is a link to the song, if you are interested:
