Pull (Song + Lyrics)

For Sirishty Thakur

[Verse 1]
Was in a hole when I first met you
There was no sun and there was no truth

I didn’t know that words had pull
But, uh, you made believe in something new

The way you love’s like a postcard view
And, uh, I never want to stray from you

I didn’t know your words had pull
But, uh, you lift me up to the penthouse, boo

[Pre-Chorus]
You’re nothing, you’re nothing
You’re nothing that’s bad
You’re something, you’re something
That I have to have … That I have to have

[Chorus]
You lift me up
You got you wings
You lift me up
You’re angeling

You lift me up
I hear them sing
You lift me up
I’m leveling

You life me up
You spread your wings
You lift me up
You’re angeling

You lift me up
I hear them sing
You lift me up
I’m leveling

[Pre-Chorus]
You’re nothing, you’re nothing
You’re nothing that’s sad
You’re something, you’re something
That I have to have … That I have to have

[Chorus]

Valentining (Song + Lyrics)

For Siristhy Thakur

[Verse 1]
Falling for forever when you show me your heart
I’d rather look at you than look at the stars
I always thought you belonged in the sky
The day you leave me is the day that I die

So far from special
They should make a new word
You’re not from Heaven
But you’re not from this Earth

If you were a color
You be only gold
I wanna hold you
Like you’re part of my soul

[Pre-Chorus]
Queen, Devi, Goddess, Pearl
It doesn’t matter
Be my valentine, girl

Queen, Devi, Goddess, Pearl
It doesn’t matter
Be my valentine girl

[Chorus x2]
Will you be?!
Will you be?!
Will you be?!
Will you be?!

I will beg!
I will beg!
Til I’m down on my knees!

Forever and ever
Is all that I need
Forever and ever
We’re valentining

[Bridge]
I guess in the end
I just want someone true
I guess that means
I want someone like you

[Chorus 2]
Will you please?!
Will you please?!
Will you please?!
Will you please?!

I will beg!
I will beg!
Til I’m down on my knees!

Forever and ever
Is all that I need
Forever and ever
We’re valentining

No

I won’t wish you a Happy New Year
Since I wished you a Happy Birthday
                                                                And
You never replied

(Perhaps you just forgot it was your day?)

No, I won’t wish you a Happy New Year
But if the world was ending
                                               Only
You know where I’d be

Following Love (Song + Lyrics)

For Sirishty Devi

[Chorus]
I think I’m falling in love
I think I’m falling in love
I think I’m falling in
I think I’m falling in

I keep on following love
I keep on following love
I keep on following
I keep on following

[Verse 1]
It doesn’t matter what they tell us to do
I’m still gonna be with you
It doesn’t matter what they want us to do
I’m still gonna stay with you

It doesn’t matter what they want us to say
I’m not going anywhere
It doesn’t matter what they force us to do
I’m still gonna stand by you

[Chorus]

[Verse 2]
I hope they tell us what to do
Cause I’m never gonna stray from you
I hope they tell us what to say
So I can show them that I’ll always stay

[Chorus x2]
I think I’m falling in love
I think I’m falling in love
I think I’m falling in
I think I’m falling in

I keep on following love
I keep on following love
I keep on following
I keep on following … my heart

The Anatomy Of A Hug

Through an endless cycle of embrace
I will go beyond all lovers
And spin your world in reverse

Travel back to a time before myths
Reimagine the universe as the shape of our kiss

Slow

        Down

The

       Earth

Until the core and mantle flake

Whileholdingtheatmospherewithinreach

Atlas held the celestial spheres on his shoulders
Now you hold them on your hips
And spin my world in reverse

Skyline (Lyrics + Song)

[Verse 1]

I never knew that it could feel like this
And I … never knew that love could get this big
You only find this on a movie screen
I think I found it in a real-life scene

You were smarter before we met
And I … was nothing but an idiot
Cause I … didn’t know that love could grow this big
Or that … I could feel like this

[Chorus]
You’re my, sky-sky-sky-line
All the time-ime-ime-ime
And I rise-ise-ise-ise
When I’m by your side-ide-ide-ide

The stars align-ign-ign-ign
When you walk-alk-alk-alk on by
My eyes-eyes-eyes-eyes
All the time-ime-ime-ime-ime

[Verse 2]

I never knew that it could feel like this
So I … never really dreamed of this
But I …. want to hold on to this
For forever’s lifetime

I’ve been smarter since the day we met
And you … still think I’m an idiot
Cause I … see forever within our kiss
I’m doing everything to hold on to it

[Chorus]

Not Like You (Lyrics + Song)

[Verse 1]

There’s no one like you in the world, babe
There’s no one like you in the galaxy
There’s no one like you in the universe, babe
There’s no like you in eternity

There’s no one like you in Heaven, babe
There’s no one like you in humanity

[Chorus 1]

That’s why I’m losing my mind
That’s why I’m sharing my heart
That’s why I’m building a home
That’s why I’m never apart

That’s why I’m never apart

[Verse 2]

There’s no one like us in the world, babe
There’s no one like us in the galaxy
There’s no one like us in the universe, babe
There’s no like like us in eternity

There’s no one like us in Heaven, babe
There’s no one like us in humanity

[Chorus 2]

That’s why we’re losing our minds
That’s why we’re sharing our hearts
That’s why we’re building a home
That’s why we’re never apart

That’s why we’re never apart

[Bridge]

There’s nothing like you in the whole world, babe
There’s nothing like you in history

(2x)
That’s why I’m losing my mind
That’s why I’m sharing my heart
That’s why I’m building a home
That’s why we’re never apart

That’s why we’re losing our minds
That’s why we’re sharing hearts
That’s why we’re building a home
That’s why we’re never apart

That’s why we’re never apart

The Ultimate Cure (Lyrics + Song)

[Verse 1]

They got the key to the city
You’re like a key to the whole world

They got a rocket to the moon, babe
You blast me off to the universe

Lovers will look up at the stars, yeah
I’m only looking at her

Helen’s face launched a thousand ships
I think you’d launch a million or more

They got no cure for heartbreak
That’s cause they never met her

mmm

[Chorus]

(2x)
You’re like the ultimate cure
You’re like the ultimate cure
You’re like the ultimate cure
You’re like the ultimate

[Verse 2]

You’re too easy to love, girl
You know I will never stop

If I could remake you
I wouldn’t even start

Oh my my, the way you ease my mind
It’s so sublime, it’s so divine

Oh my my, the way you ease my mind
Our souls align, it’s so divine

I never say that you’re pretty or smart
Cause those are just mortal words

You deserve something better
You deserve the world

Cause

[Chorus]

(2x)
You’re like the ultimate cure
You’re like the ultimate cure
You’re like the ultimate cure
You’re like the ultimate

Sirishty (Song Lyrics + Song)

[Verse 1]

Shakespeare would’ve written about you
If he had the chance to

Newton would question all the laws
If he saw you up against the stars

Socrates would have so many questions
Buddha would call you perfected perfection

Darwin would rethink evolution
Moses would have another commandment

Galileo would change his mind
Realize the sun revolves around your eyes

[Chorus 1]

Sirishty
Do you know what you would’ve done to da Vinci?

Sirishty
Do you know what you would’ve done to Ghandi?

Sirishty
Do you know what you would’ve done to Genghis Kahn?

Sirishty
Do you know what you do to the gods?

[Verse 2]

Sirishty
If you were from another time
There’d be no water to wine

Sirishty
If you were from another time
There’d be no atomic bomb

Sirishty
If you were from another time
There’d be no Beethoven or Bach

[Chorus 2]

Sirishty
Too bad you can’t travel back
Too bad you can’t travel back

You’d be the most sung about
You’d be the most written about
You’d be the most talked about
You’d be the most

Goddess (Song Lyrics + Song)

[Guitar Intro]

[Verse 1]

I fell in love with you
Under the stars
There’s something ‘bout the way
You move in the dark

The way you walk
Is a new form of art
I think my heart
Is beating off the charts

I swear to heaven
That you are divine
I’d think the same
Even if you weren’t mine

The way you look
Just breaks up mind
If you were a flower
You’d bloom for all time

[Chorus]

When you fall
You fall just like a goddess
When you say you have flaws
I think that you’re flawless

There’s nothing about you
That wouldn’t be perfect
Your imperfections
I don’t even notice

When you fall
You fall just like a goddess
When you say you have flaws
I think that you’re flawless

There’s nothing about you
That wouldn’t be perfect
Your imperfections
Don’t come to the surface

[Bridge]

You’re like a dream
That walks in the world
You’re like a chord
That nobody’s heard
If you aren’t rare
Then rare is not there
If you aren’t rare
Then nothing is, dear

You’re like a dream
That walks in the world
You’re like a song
That nobody’s heard
If you aren’t rare
Then rare is not there
If you are not rare
Then nothing is here

[Piano solo]
