Indus Creed: Pretty Child - A tribute

 

ImageShack

Heard it the first thing in the morning, and have not stopped listening to it since. My brother used to play it often and it used to be running on TV all day. This song was something. Was voted 9th in the best 100 videos of 1993, worldwide.There is something very nostalgic about this song. Make me remember my brother, my home in Delhi, the dhabha outside our house which played this song often, Doordarshan (MTV initially used to air for 2 hours in the evening on DD2).

There is weird aura about the lyrics and it makes you remember your loved ones. It makes me remember well some of the people who came into my life and changed it forever. I don’t know what it is about this song..I’ll cry.

The lyrics for you to follow

pretty child, they’re cheering away
as you ride through your kingdom of sand
lovely child , you’re a hero today
you’re a magical mystery man

like a bird on the wing, you soar through your dreams
let your fantasies sweep the skies, but you know it’s unreal
the pain is so clear, like the tears in a baby’s eyes

holy child, you fly through the night
on your faithful and glorious steed
lonely child, wake up to the light
get back to your tatters, your home on the street

like a bird on the wing, you soar through your dreams
let your fantasies sweep the skies
but you know it’s unreal, the pain is so clear
like the tears in a baby’s eyes
like the tears in a baby’s eyes

like a bird on the wing, you soar through your dreams
let your fantasies sweep the skies
but you know it’s unreal, the pain is so clear
like the tears in a baby’s eyes
tears in a baby’s eyes
like the tears in a baby’s eyes

    Hey, Love Indus Creed too. And Love Pretty Child. Although Trapped is my favourite.
