I Heart Nikhil D'Souza.

MissMalini , 03 Sep 2009

Also been catching up on my cool recommendations for the month… Remember the super awesome Nikhil D’Souza and the Naked Tops? Well he sent me the sweetest Facebook message saying, “Hey Malini, a friend of mine shot this video for a song of mine, “Perfect life” I’m trying to get more people to see it, so please watch, see if u like and if it makes the cut for one of your blogs… :)” Undoubtedly it does! FYI Black Balloon shot this performance video for singer-songwriter Nikhil D’Souza one June afternoon, amidst lush green (5 minutes away from the Bombay concrete chaos) as lazy buffalo, lazier milkmen and bashful panthers looked on…

Perfect Life

Call me over babe, to your place
If only to see the view
Been watching streets washed over with rain
And all that remained were thoughts of you
Oh, having you lady is the greatest thing
A man could ever want
Hold me in your sights, what we will be tonight
Is really up to you…

Everything’s just as it should be
And not a touch out of place
I stayed awake last night
Thinking about a picture perfect life
And how long its gonna stay that way

Got a mind full of frames
Cause she loves taking pictures of herself
I’ll be waiting on the corner in the rain
When beauty fails, and trouble has a mind of its own
So I’m stringing up my guitar to play,
play me something new
Its this feeling I’ve got, that I’ve got to have for
when I’m not with you.

And everything’s just as it should be
And not a touch out of place
I stayed awake last night
Thinking about a picture perfect life
And how long its gonna stay that way
