I don't want to be a tourist in your heart
I don't want to visit someone else's ruins
Don't want a day trip to the feelings in the dark
Don't want a quick-fix honeymoon

Bridge:
We need: emotional allegiance, devotional love
a living promise like in the story of RAM

Chorus:
Raghupati raghava raja Ram
Patite pavana Sita Ram
Stand be me -- feel the sun
Emotional allegiance -- divine love

There's a change in the weather
and a hole in the sky
snow in the summer
and the rivers run dry
who will guard your fragile dreams of rain
when your heart is tired of daytrippers
and nobody stays....

Bridge:
We need: emotional allegiance, devotional love
a living promise like in the story of RAM

Chorus...
