Shade

He whose head is in the shadow of love
has heaven under his feet
 
Walk in the shade (of love) x4
 
Keep your head in the shade of love, and keep walking x2
 
Under your feet are paradise, keep walking in the shade x2
 
Walk in the shade (of love) x4
 
That lover which is like fragrance
Whose voice is as beautiful as Urdu (a language)
 
My evening, my night, my universe
That lover is my beloved
 
Walk in the shade (of love) x4
 
She who hides in the flowers
you can only find her from her fragrance x2
 
I'll wear her like an amulet
hoping she'll come to me like a prayerx2
 
She who hides in the flowers
you can only find her from her fragrance
 
I'll wear her like an amulet
hoping she'll come to me like a prayer
 
That lover that is like my faith
she is like my song, my declaration of faith
my song song my faith faith x4
 
My love who walked like dew
Under her feet streams paradise
sometimes on the branches, sometimes on teh leaves
I search for a sign of her in the air
 
I am a lover of all her forms
Who flirts with light and shadow
She is mischievous, and changes color
And I am a seeker of the colors and forms

Chaiyya Chaiyya is a most beautiful and stirring song, I love the thought behind the words. But, does anyone know why this was selected for the background music for the movie "Inside Man"?
