what must i do to really have her cause i want her when she plays so hard to get let me count the ways i love her yeah i'll love her for all the years ahead she waits for me, waits for me with her feet here on the ground until i get my head out of the clouds she wakes me, i break free she shows me who i am and when i think i have her figured out i'm back where i began i can see how much she needs me like i need her as she slowly lets me in when i put my arms around her there's comfort like a price for me to win she waits for me, waits for me with her feet here on the ground until i get my head out of the clouds she wakes me, i break free she shows me who i am and when i think i have her figured out i'm back where i began she still captivates me like a puppet on a string she keeps me interested she's got everything and i'll wrap around her finger just to reach her she waits for me, waits for me with her feet here on the ground until i get my head out of the clouds she wakes me, i break free she shows me who i am and when i think i have her figured out i'm back where i began

they come with their reasons but i don't believe them the biggest hand takes it all a plot to assign blame no matter what time takes i'm building my taj mahal still i can't stand another word of it when you went away darling you took a piece of me but there's something in the heartache that seems to comfort me when you went away darling man in the ocean hangs on to a notion that one day soon he'll be found lips parched and thirsty suffers the irony that the water is all around still he can't take a single drop of it when you went away darling you took a piece of me but there's something in the heartache that seems to comfort me i knew when we started that you'd be the end of me but there's something in the heartache that seems to carry me there's something that she said that this is not the end must go back to the hand that hurt me when you went away darling you took a piece of me but there's something in the heartache that seems to comfort me i knew when we started that you'd be the end of me but there's something in the heartache that seems to carry me

listen listen to your heart now telling you that somehow i feel safe this time this would be the first time this could be the last time your heart breaks the night is falling i will be with you night is falling girl let me kiss you night is falling stay with me til the break of day hurting i'd never dream of flirting that would be the worst thing i could do slowly slowly moving closer careful not to over power you the night is falling i will be with you night is falling girl let me kiss you night is falling stay with me til the break of day

the tables turn i'm inside out thought you belonged to someone else and now you come to me in my dreams call me if there's something wrong you can call me just so i can hear you breathe it always brings a smile to me is there more that i can say what would it take to change your mind and make you stay awhile is there nothing i can do to help you see this through if you come around i'll be waiting for you i put my heart out right there for you it wasn't smart a crazy thing to do now you know the truth yes, i feel a little broken but i've no regrets in telling you i think you feel it too is there more that i can say what would it take to change your mind and make you stay awhile is there nothing i can do to help you see this through if you come around i'll be waiting for you if you need a friend more than a lover today i can pretend that's okay is there more that i can say what would it take to change your mind and make you stay awhile is there nothing i can do to help you see this through if you come around i'll be waiting for you

in a place i knew well beside you a seat i said to myself 'now there's a girl that i'd like to meet' let me stay a while we can talk for weeks just enough time for you for you to see the real me and all that we can be everything about us is hanging on a promise if you think i doubt us and i can't be honest take my reassurance and let it give you solace you're all i ever wanted in the curve of your face in a dress that you wear when you walk with grace in the curl of your hair your beauty reaches me like sunlight on a warm wedding day but i still love you even in the pouring rain this is why i say everything about us is hanging on a promise if you think i doubt us and i can't be honest take my reassurance and let it give you solace you're all i ever wanted how the years have passed i've seen all the trouble life's brought to you but our love will last don't think for a moment i've doubted you everything about us is hanging on a promise if you think i doubt us and i can't be honest take my reassurance and let it give you solace you're all i ever wanted

she told me that i was a sinner and that if i tried could do better but what is this standard of measure that kicks you when you're down she'd say that my faith is fleeting but i tell you my heart is still beating looking for an intimate setting for two i've crossed the line of no returning though she tried to make me stay i hope in time your heart is yearning and i'll see you come my way one sip from the cup she was drinking went straight to my head with her thinking she had me believe i kept needing to come back for more i finally saw through the riddle no need for someone in the middle hold on, this will hurt just a little baby let go i've crossed the line of no returning though she tried to make me stay i hope in time your heart is yearning and i'll see you come my way i'm so done with her who used her words to cage my rhyme tell me that you're sure only to change your mind i've crossed the line of no returning though she tried to make me stay i hope in time your heart is yearning and i'll see you come my way

about

22 years. 20,000 people. 1,000 elephants. 40 million rupees, 500kg of gold, and the deep longing of an emperor. This is what it took to build the world famous Taj Mahal, a tribute to a beautiful woman and monument of enduring love.

Almost 2 decades. A couple in love, now a tribe of 6. Not much money. Some tears. A bit of faith. A lot of laughter. Friendship, love, and Hope. This is the inspiration behind the building of my taj mahal.

Thanks to all who helped the dream of this project become a reality. The tribute has only just begun...
