Lyrics by Valentine Shipley, with Neeraj Arya and the boys from Umeed Home


Dhim Dham
Dherene Dham Dham x4

Sunle meri sada,
Rehta hai tu kahan. X2

Sanson Mein merit u hi basaa hai,
Dharkanon mein tera nasha hai. X2

Tu hai mera khuda x2

Hey hai… x2

Ganga nahale chaye,
Tilak laga re,
Karni ka likha hua,
Tale na tale. X2

Hey hai… x2

Who hai khiladi,
Mein hun khilona,
Karni ka likha,
Honi ka hona,
Holi ka hona.

Puja kar vale chaye
Havan kara le
Tale na tale.

Hey hai… x2

Dhim dham…

God listen to my prayers today,
Where are you?

In my every breath I can feel you.
My every heartbeat is addicted to the illusion of your presence.

You are my God.

You can bathe in the Ganges all you want,
And perform all the rituals you want,
But as long as you do not seize the day with action
Everything is insignificant.

For you see, it doesn’t matter who the creator is and who the person being controlled is,
In the end, the only thing that matters is that we take action in the time we have.

Next to this all rituals and prayer meetings are secondary.
