I Did Not Understand

I did not understand
Such a simple thing
Dreams are of glass
The World of stone

I did not understand such a simple thing
When i desired then i found
Light brought with it shadows too
shadows were deep
Light was dim

I did not understand
Such a simple thing
Dreams are of glass
The World of stone

Just destruction, just loneliness
Where has life brought me
Lost is the pathway to my destination

I did not understand
Such a simple thing
Dreams are of glass
The World of stone

What can one sell, what can one distribute
There is nothing else but thorns in my arms
And will hurt just the flowers

I did not understand
Such a simple thing
Dreams are of glass
The World of stone

* This is the english translation of the beautiful Hindi song ‘ Hum Na Samjhe The by S. P. Balasubrahmanyam
