“All Those Beautiful Dreams”- Lyrics/ Music and Produced by Ashesh Dangol
I don’t know in how
many rooms I have
slept I don’t know how many
smiles I have gave
Eyes wide open
searching peace in-
self, in-self

I don’t know how many
doors I have left
I don’t know how many
sad songs I have kept
Streets wide open with
the red light, red light
on, red light on

many times I whisper
with myself
And all those beautiful
dreams
it crashed, it crashed 
with the rising Sun 

many times I whisper
with myself
And all those beautiful
dreams it crashed, it
crashed 
with the rising Sun,
with the rising Sun
with the rising Sun,
with the rising Sun
with the rising Sun
