lyrics

_

i watch the temple dancer
that pretty, pretty dancer
she reminds me of my sister
who's gone so far
she's gone to america
the land of dreams and big cars
i hope she finds the star she's looking for

(kai veeshi...
* wave our hands...)

she wore white blossoms in her hair
left a trail of fragrance everywhere
her scent still lingers in the air
i can almost see her
i can almost hear her
the bells the music as she danced
how she danced

always invoking her deity
always provoking gravity
always challenging her muse
born to dance, she cannot lose

i watch the temple dancer
that pretty, pretty dancer
she reminds me of my sister
who's gone so far
she's gone to america
the land of dreams and big cars
i hope she finds the star
she's looking for

always invoking her deity
always provoking gravity
always challenging her muse
born to dance, she cannot lose

bridge:
kai veeshamma kai veeshi
kovil ku polan kai veeshi
kai veeshamma kai veeshi
kumbitu varalam kai veeshi
kai veeshi...

* let's wave our hands, mother, wave our hands...
let's go to the shop, mother, and wave our hands...
let's buy some sweets, mother, and...
let's eat them slowly, mother, ...
let's go to the temple, mother, ...
let's bow before the deity, mother, wave our hands...*

about

PINKNOISE Kolkata, India

PINKNOISE, formed in 2006, is the mischievous late night alter-ego to indie pioneers Skinny Alley.

Their debut studio full length, The Dance Of The Diaspora, was released in 2014 after a tumultuous two years during which time the band lost its bassist Gyan Singh to illness.

He is survived by Jayashree Singh (voice, stories), Amyt Datta (guitar, synthesizers) and Jivraj Singh (drums, design).
