tu pyar ka sagar hai, teri ik boond ke pyase hum
lauta jo diya tuney, chaley jayenge jahan se hum


You are an ocean of love, I thirst for a drop of you
I shall return what you’ve given, and leave the world

ghayal man ka pagal panchhi, udne ko bekarar
pankh hain komal, ankh hain dhundli, jana hai sagar paar
ab tu hee isey samjha, raah bhuley thay kahan say hum


The crazy bird of mind, wounded, is dying to fly
Its wings are soft, eyes misty, it must fly across the ocean
Now you alone explain to it, where the path was forgotten

idhar jhum ke gaye zindagi, udhar hai maut khadi
koi kya janey kahaan hain seema, uljhan aan padi
kaanon mein jara kah dey, kay aye kaun disha say hum


Here life sings entranced, there stands death
What does anyone know where the boundaries lie, dilemmas arise
Do whisper into my ears, where I came from.
