"snow on the sahara" by anggun  

Posted by LiQuiDfiRe in , ,



only tell me that you still want me here
when you wander off out there
to those hills of dust and hard winds that blow
in that dry white ocean alone
lost out in the desert
you are lost out in the desert

but to stand with you in a ring of fire
i'll forget the days gone by
i'll protect your body and guard your soul
from mirages in your sight

lost out in the desert
you are lost out in the desert

if your hopes scatter like the dust across your track
i'll be the moon that shines on your path
the sun may blind our eyes, i'll pray the skies above
for snow to fall on the sahara

just a wish and i will cover your shoulders
with veils of silk and gold
when the shadows come and darken your heart
leaving you with regrets so cold

lost out in the desert
you are lost out in the desert

if your hopes scatter like the dust across your track
i'll be the moon that shines on your path
the sun may blind our eyes, i'll pray the skies above
for snow to fall on the sahara

if thats the only place where you can leave your doubts
i'll hold you up and be your way out
and if we burn away, i'll pray the skies above
for snow to fall on the sahara


i was listening to rx93.1 last wednesday when i heard this song again. i haven't heard it for... god knows how many ages ago. and it was really good to be reminded of good ole songs i loved back then. well, i still do love it now. and thanks to the monster radio that i get to be reminded of nice songs of yesteryears. it's just so sad that i haven't really heard that much of anggun lately. or maybe it's just me.... hehe... am not that updated, you know.... :)

many will agree with me when i say that anggun kinda reminds you of our very own grace nono. not just about the looks, but also with the timbre of the voice and over-all style. i remember that i hear other people say the same things when anggun became a hit a few years back.

also, one thing that i so love about this song is the nice poetic lyrics. i don't know if all her songs are like this, since i never had the chance to buy the album (which i vowed to do the moment i first heard this song). if there are still copies available at record bars, i hope i remember to buy one. for now, am gonna try listening to her other songs at youtube.

according to the comments at youtube, where i got the video of this song, the original version of this song is in french. i was surprised 'coz i didn't know that this is originally done in french. and so i listened to it to find out which version is better...



now, i really wish i know how to speak french so i can appreciate it more. nonetheless, i love this version too, even though i don't understand a tad bit of it. :D and i just can't pick one between the two versions. i love 'em both!
