When the monsoon starts, it doesn’t just bring the rain with it. It brings the music of nature along-with the ruffling of leaves, the whistling of wind, the murmur of grey clouds and the pitter-patter of raindrops. To top it all, the fresh smell of grass and the wet ground.
Today let’s share something with this spectacular monsoon. Let’s share music…Songs that amalgam perfectly with the rain and a hot cup of coffee.

Pulling your puzzles apart
Questions of science, science and progress
Do not speak as loud as my heart.”

Watch you smile while you are sleeping
While you’re far away and dreaming.”

Search for a better way
To find my way home to your smile.”

The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spell.”

“There’s nothing but the rain
No footsteps on the ground
I’m listening but there’s no sound.
Isn’t anyone trying to find me?
Won’t somebody come take me home?
It’s a damn cold night
Trying to figure out this life
Won’t you take me by the hand?
Take me somewhere new
I don’t know who you are
But I, I’m with you.”
7. Reason For Love by David Hodges:
This song is to color your hopes. Hopes of love and joy. A perfect song to dedicate to your love.

Where my heart can breathe
Somewhere I can believe again
Give me something that time can’t erase
Cause losing you is taking too much
Tell me there’s a reason for love.”

Yeah, feed the rain

Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars

Nainon ko moond moond
