: Carry Me / Lai

A tear drop falls into the ocean
This world so of greed
I cannot swim in these waters
Beloved, please carry me

Welling up, waves of emotion
Guide my soul through this storm
Show me the your mercy
Guide me, guide me back

Chorus
Carry me across the ocean
Carry me with your love
Give me your hand
Hold me close
Give me peace, give me peace, sweet peace

Gurmukhi: Lobh leher at neejar baajai Kaayaa dubay Keshava
Translation: The waves of avarice unceasingly spring into play. My body is drowning oh Keshava.

Gurmukhi: Sansaar Samunday Taar Gobinday Taar Lai Baap Beetula
Translation: Carry me across the world ocean, Lord of the world. Carry me across oh Father.

Gurmukhi: Anil bera ho kayv na saako Tayraa paar na paaya beetula
Translation: I cannot steer my boat through the indescribable realm. The far I cannot find.

Gurmukhi Chorus
Taar Lai, Taar Lai
Taar Lai, Baap Beetula
Taar Lai, Taar Lai
Taar Lai, Baap Beetula
Translation: Carry me across the world ocean, Lord of the world. Carry me across oh Loved
Father.

Carry me across the ocean
Carry me with your love
Give me your hand
Hold me close
Give me peace
Give me peace
Sweet peace
