Peekaboo - Karsh Kale at Coke Studio @ MTV

 

This is a song about separation and missing one’s lover. It talks about the pain of staying apart and the anxiety it brings. Peekaboo stands for the lovers finding each other by chance & their attempt then to try and ascertain the depth of love felt by the other.

 

Worked up from a guitar groove by Warren Mendonsa, ‘Peekaboo’ features Apeksha Dandekar with guest vocals of Mandeep Sethi and Benny Dayal.

 

 

Read the lyrics here:

 

Naina more taras gaye
Naina more taras Gaye


Aaja balam pardesi
Aaja balam pardesi



naina more tharas gaye
Aaja balam pardesi
Aaja balam pardesi

 

Mor papaiya koyal bole
Mor papaiya koyal bole

 


Mujh birhan ka jiyara dole
Mujh birhan ka jiyara dole


Kare baadal garaja gaye

Aaja balam pardesi
Aaja balam pardesi
 

 

Remember the time when we first met

The very time that u tried to forget

Tell me my dear did u miss me at all

Did u reach out to touch me did u try to call

Did you reach out to touch me, yeaahhh

 


Peekaboo i found u again

Hiding in the corner with your imaginary friend

And im here tonight to see this through till the end

Coz I will always be with you.

 

 

 India - waitin for my sisters to come home

Cuz my motherland is feelin oh so alone

Kismat say milkay asmaan meraa zameen

Jo hogayaa so hogayaa usi gabroo shakeen

A new day is here time to formulate the team

Slumgods never is the focus getting cream

More like setting up the scene for a dream to come true

Im lost between 2 languages ancient and new

 


Im a servant of truth but a master of lies,

Iiving in this world with perfect disguise

Im moving away that u won’t recognize

When u look in the mirror you’ll see through my eyes

See through my eyes

See through my eyes.

 

Peekaboo i found u again

Hiding in the corner with your imaginary friend

And im here tonight to see this through till the end

Tonight to see this through till the end
 cuz I will always be .. and I will always be … And im here and I will always be with you!
