[Song Pick] “Raktim”- Various Versions

Recently, I came to know this Nepali folk song ‘Raktim by Phatteman Rajbhandari’, and instantly loved it. Well, to be very honest, if I had found this song 10 years back then I wouldn’t have liked the song at all. I would have ignored any song of this genre. However, as I am aging, my taste and preferences are changing and I am liking this kind of songs. Is it just me or happens to everyone? Well, in any case, I kind of find this funny.

Anyway, enjoy the song by the singer himself and the cover version.

Lyrics:
And meet me there, with bundles of flowers
We’ll wade through the hours of cold winter
She’ll howl at the walls
Tearing down doors of time
Shelter as we go

And promise me this
You’ll wait for me only
Scared of the lonely arms
That surface, far below these birds
Maybe, just maybe i’ll come home

Who am i, darling to you?
Who am i
To tell you stories of mine?
Who am i?

Who am i, darling for you?
Who am i
To be your burden in time? Lonely
Who am i, to you?

Who am i, darling for you?
Who am i?
To be your burden
Who am i, darling to you?
Who am i?

I come alone here
I come alone here
