My Hindi Harmonica Song

“Tum Hi Ho” from Aashiqui 2

Hum Tere Bin Ab Reh Nahi Sakte
Tere Bina Kya Wajood Mera
Hum Tere Bin Ab Reh Nahi Sakte
Tere Bina Kya Wajood Mera
Tujhse Juda Gar Ho Jaayenge
Toh Khud Se Hi Ho Jaayenge Judaa

Kyunki Tum Hi Ho
Ab Tum Hi Ho
Zindagi Ab Tum Hi Ho
Chain Bhi, Mera Dard Bhi
Meri Aashiqui Ab Tum Hi Ho

Tera Mera Rishta Hai Kaisa
Ik Pal Door Gawaara Nahi
Tere Liye Har Roz Hai Jeete
Tujh Ko Diya Mera Waqt Sabhi
Koi Lamha Mera Na Ho Tere Bina
Har Saans Pe Naam Tera

Kyunki Tum Hi Ho
Ab Tum Hi Ho
Zindagi Ab Tum Hi Ho
Chain Bhi, Mera Dard Bhi
Meri Aashiqui Ab Tum Hi Ho

Tumhi Ho… Tumhi Ho…

Tere Liye Hi Jiya Main
Khud Ko Jo Yun De Diya Hai
Teri Wafa Ne Mujhko Sambhala
Saare Ghamon Ko Dil Se Nikala
Tere Saath Mera Hai Naseeb Juda
Tujhe Paake Adhoora Naa Raha Hmm..

Kyunki Tum Hi Ho
Ab Tum Hi Ho
Zindagi Ab Tum Hi Ho..
Chain Bhi, Mera Dard Bhi
Meri Aashiqui Ab Tum Hi Ho
Kyunki Tum Hi Ho
Ab Tum Hi Ho
Zindagi Ab Tum Hi Ho..
Chain Bhi, Mera Dard Bhi
Meri Aashiqui Ab Tum Hi Ho

My English Harmonica Song

“My Heart Will Go On” by Celine Dion

Every night in my dreams
I see you, I feel you
That is how I know you go on
Far across the distance
And spaces between us
You have come to show you go on
Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you’re here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on
Love can touch us one time
And last for a lifetime
And never let go ’til we’re gone
Love was when I loved you
One true time I’d hold to
In my life we’ll always go on
Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you’re here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on
You’re here, there’s nothing I fear
And I know that my heart will go on
We’ll stay forever this way
You are safe in my heart and
My heart will go on and on

My Telugu Harmonica Song

“Paala Pitta” by Rahul Sipligunj and MM Manasi

Evoo Gusa Gusale Naaloo
Some strange whispers within me,
Valase Vidsi Valape Virise Edaloo
my heart stopped being nomadic and bloomed full of love.

Paala Pittalo Valapu,
Ni Paita Mettu Pai Vaalindhey,
Love has perched on your shoulder like a beautiful bird.
Poola Puttalo Merupu,
Nee Kattu Puttalo Dhoorindhey,
The shine of a flower basket has gotten into your attire.
Theene Pattula Nee Pilupey,
Nanu Katti Padesindhey,
Your sweet call has made me spellbound.

Pilla Naa Gundellona, Ille Kattesinavey,
Oh girl you have built a home in my heart.
Kallapu Jalli, Rangu Mugge Pettesinavey,
You have dampened the floor and drew a colorful Rangoli.

Kondalanchulo Merupu,
Nee Churuku Chupulo Cherindhey,
The spark of the end of a sickle has got into your sharp looks.
Gadapakaddina Pasupu,
Nee Chilipi Mudhhula Taakindey,
Turmeric painted to the door threshold has touched like your naughty kiss.
Malupu Tirigi Naa Manasittaa,
Nee Vainuki Mallindhey,
My heart has taken a turn towards you.

Pillodaa Gundelona Ille Kattesinavey,
Oh boy you have built a home in my heart.
Innalaa Siggulannee Yella Gottesinavey,
You’ve drove away off all my shyness.

Villu Laanti Nee Vollu,
Visuruthunte Baanaalu,
While your body is shooting arrows like a bow,
Gaddi Paraka Pai Aggi Pullala,
Bhaggumannavey Naa Kallu,
My eyes flared up like a matchstick on hay.

Nee Matloni Rojaalu,
Gucchukuntey Mari Vollu,
While the rose thorns in your words are pricking.
Nippu Pettina Thene Pattula,
Nidra Pattadey Raathrullu,
I couldn’t sleep at night like a smoked up beehive.

Nee Nadumu Choosthey Malle Theega,
Your waist is like a string of jasmine.
Naa Manasu Daaninalley Thooneega,
And my heart is like a dragonfly embracing it.

Mella Mellagaa Chillinaavuga,
Kottha Kalalu Baagaa,
You have slowly tossed new dreams.

Pilla Naa Gundellona, Ille Kattesinavey,
Oh girl you have built a home in my heart.
Kallapu Jalli, Rangu Mugge Pettesinavey,
You have dampened the floor and drew a colorful Rangoli.

Paala Pittalo Valapu,
Ni Paita Mettu Pai Vaalindhey,
Love has perched on your shoulder like a beautiful bird.
Poola Puttalo Merupu,
Nee Kattu Puttalo Dhoorindhey,
The shine of a flower basket has gotten into your attire.

Theene Pattula Nee Pilupey
Nanu Katti Padesindhey,
Your sweet call has made me spellbound.

Pilla Naa Gundellona Ille Kattesinavey,
Oh boy you have built a home in my heart.
Innalaa Siggulannee Yella Gottesinavey,
You’ve drove away off all my shyness.

My Second Telugu Harmonica Song

“Adiga Adiga” by Sid Sriram

Adiga Adiga Yedhalo Layanadiga,
Kadhile Kshanama Cheli Yedhani,

I asked the voice in my heart,
Oh, passing time! Where is my love?

Nanne Maricha Thana Peruney Thalicha,
Madhine Adiga Thana Usedhani,

I forgot myself thinking of her.
I asked my heart where her presence is.

Nuvve Leni Nannu Oohinchalenu,
Na Prathi Oohalonu Vethikithe Manakathey,

I can’t imagine myself without you.
I look for our story in every thought of mine.

Neelone Unna Ninu Kori Unna,
Nizamai Nadhicha Jathaga,

I am within you, desiring for you.
I walked along with you as the truth.

Gundelothullo Undhi Nuvega,
Na Sagame Na Jagame Nuvega,

You are in the depths of my heart.
You are my better half and my world.

Nee Snehame Nanu Nadipe Swaram,
Ninu Cheraga Agiponi Payanam,
Alupe Leni Gamanam,

Your friendship is the tune that guides me.
This journey doesn’t halt at just reaching you.
This travel has no exhaustion.

Adiga Adiga Yedhalo Layanadiga,
Kadhile Kshanama Cheli Yedhani,

I asked the voice in my heart,
Oh, passing time! Where is my love?

Nanne Maricha Thana Perune Thalicha,
Madhine Adiga Thana Oosedhani,

I forgot myself thinking of her.
I asked my heart where her presence is.

Nuvve Leni Nannu Oohinchalenu,
Na Prathi Oohalonu Vethikithe Manakathey,

I can’t imagine myself without you.
I look for our story in every thought of mine.

Neelone Unna Ninu Kori Unna,
Nizamai Nadhicha Jathaga,

I am within you, desiring for you.
I walked along with you as the truth.
