..: Sunscreen :..

one of those all time favs..
a fren was talkin abt it today on the gtalk, listened to the song after almost 2 yrs now..

read the lyrics again...

and here are snippets of the song... the whole of it makes sense...

but i'm puttin the lines which are more relevant to me..

enjoy.. !

Baz Luhrmann - Everyone's free (to wear Sunscreen)

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth.
Oh, never mind. You will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they’ve faded.
But trust me, in 20 years, you’ll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked.

i'm goin thru this phase rite now.. was talkin to a fren about how i've lost my childhood, doin absolutely nothing, nothin to be proud of... the circumstances were wierd.. but, i'm livin my lyf now, since a year and a half to be precise... thanks Mumbai - for happening ! thank u God, for makin it happen !!

Don’t worry about the future.
Or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubble gum.
The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind, the kind that blindside you at 4 pm on some idle Tuesday.
Do one thing every day that scares you.

Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts.
Don’t put up with people who are reckless with yours.

i wish, it cud be so easy.. loved, broke, loved again, broke.. status - love is not for the weak hearted.. i'm not gonna stop lovin people jus cus they are reckless.. instead teach them a lesson or two in the process !!

The race is long and, in the end, it’s only with yourself.
Remember compliments you receive. Forget the insults.
If you succeed in doing this, tell me how.
Keep your old love letters. Throw away your old bank statements.

Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your life.

i feel, knwin things makes it all more complicated.. jus live in the moment and take it from there.. plans will crash and fail, jus let it be the way it is supposed to be.. instead of complicatin your own lyf by puttin rules and plans to the ever-so-enthused lyf !

Whatever you do, don’t congratulate yourself too much, or berate yourself either.

Enjoy your body.
Use it every way you can. Don’t be afraid of it or of what other people think of it.
It’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own.

i like this line.. 'the greatest instrument' !!

Dance - even if you have nowhere to do it but your living room.

one thing which relaxes me, and the only thing which can cure me of all the pains ! dance.. and yes i do dance, but only wen i feel lyk..

Get to know your parents. You never know when they’ll be gone for good.
Be nice to your siblings. They’re your best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.
Understand that friends come and go,
but with a precious few you should hold on.

Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard.
Live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.

Don’t expect anyone else to support you.
Maybe you have a trust fund. Maybe you’ll have a wealthy spouse. But you never know when either one might run out.

you now knw why i'm not dependent on u, why i keep refusin favours from u... i believe in living alone.. wen i need the support, i'l definitely come back to you..

Be careful whose advice you buy, but be patient with those who supply it.
Advice is a form of nostalgia. Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it’s worth.

“brother and sister together we’ll make it through,
someday a spirit will take you and guide you there
I know that you’re hurting but I’ve been waiting there for you
and I’ll be there just helping you out
whenever I can
everybody’s free
everybody’s free
to feel good”

and that is how the song ends...

so true, so inspiring, so refreshing (a few lines are), and so very bringing-back-to-reality kinds !

enjoy, while it lasts...
