This song evokes different feelings for different people. It touches them and rings true in their own way. For me, it is my company on days when I don’t feel like getting out of bed, in the night when I wake up scared because of a bad dream, on days when I don’t know how or I don’t want to go about this one more day, in the night when I don’t want to wake up the next day knowing that I will not be able to talk to him, that I will not have a message from him, that he doesn’t exist anymore.
“Tum saath ho ya na ho Kya fark hai”
“Bin bole baatein tumse Karun”
One morning I woke up thinking - “We will make it work” and then the next morning - without him. Everytime I’d fall, he will pick me up right before I hit the ground and now - it’s just me - Fall, get hurt, get up and carry on. It will ache a bit in just one more place.
Whoever said - to have love and lost is better than to have never loved, probably had no fricking idea that it hurts like a bitch every single day, second and sometimes, it is impossible to breathe. It takes all your energy and will to breathe, to keep going.
This song captures the pain, the struggle, the effort to hold on to your love. It reminds you of the time spent together, memories created. It will tug at you to remind you of all the emotions you felt and are probably still capable of feeling. It reminds me of the love that consumed me and the love like no other - then, now & for the time to come. It also reminds me that love is like sand, the tighter I tried to hold on to it, the faster it slipped through my hand and is lost now.
Tum saath ho will make you come back to it over and over again, sometimes back to back, sometimes when you are in a dark place & sometimes just to sit with you, hug you while you cry to deal with the pain you feel in your body and sometimes to even help you breathe a little and get you through today.
"Pal bhar thahar jaao
Dil ye sambhal jaaye
Kaise tumhe roka karun...."
