"Pal" , What is it? It is a hindi word which means moments. It may be moments of joy , success ,sorrow and love. These " pals" and their memories are the only thing that keep us reminding that who we are and what we have done and what we can. They remind us in form of the memories that how we have lived our life in the past.
The lyric penned here is also one such set of memories of the moments experienced by a boy with his maiden.
I ask you to stay,
Yet is there anything left to say.
I wish i could go back in time,
When i was yours and you were only mine.
I wished to always protect you and prayed him let nothing harm her,
How ironic it was though that you were my armour.
I remember every kiss and touch,
All our memories i miss so much.
Now you are trying to leave me without a goodbye,
I have got no energy even to cry.
There are many nights when you are all that's on mind,
I hope bliss is what you find.
There are days when i just can't get out of bed,
But "try" is what you always said.
Everyday i " try" to sleep, but all i see is you,
I think to myself, is she feeling this too?
Was it all nothing but just a dream?
No matter how real it may seem.
Everything i feel , was it an illusion,
Explained by the way it left me in shock and confusion.
My best dream became my worst nightmare,
You vanished while you were right there.
But i can truly tell you," you were the best dream i ever had".
And for that i can only be grateful and glad.
To be happy again, i will have to relive the past.
Hold on to every memory as long as they last.
You may not feel this feeling now between us two,
But in the end you won't find anyone who loves you as much as i do.
