Jaa rahe ho agar , dur mujhse sanam , fir mere paas aana nahi ,
ye bhi mumkin nahi, main palat na sakoon , isliye itna waada karo
Mujhko awaaz dena nahi
Mil bhi jaaye agar hum tumhe raah mein , pher lena nazar par milana nahi
Dekh lo bhi agar tum humein bhool se , apni aankhon mein tum ashk lana nahi
Dil se humko to tum kar chuke ho juda, aankh se bhi giraana nahi
Tumne maangi dua , humko mile har khushi , tumhi meri khushi , fir kyun mile na humein
Tumne li hai kasam , gham na karna kabhi , tum sikha do zara muskuraana humein
tumne keh to diya , yaad karna nahi , khaab tum bhi aana nahi
If you are leaving me , my beloved, please do not come close to me again , and it’s not possible for me to not look back if you call me , so please promise you will never call out my name again.
And even if we cross roads someday , just turn away and leave , please do not even look at me , and even if you notice me by mistake , please do not shed any tears for me , you already severed me from your heart , please do not let me fall off your eyes.
All you prayed for was that I get all the happiness I want , but my happiness was you , then why couldn’t we be together,You asked me to promise that I will never ever be sad again ,so can you teach me how to smile now , You asked me never to think about you again , but promise me that you will no longer come in to my dreams.
I tried my best , but the translation does not do justice to the lyrics. All my hindi speaking friends will agree.
At the time this song was released I was about to leave school and whenever I would hear this song , I would burst into tears. Well,no tears anymore , guess memories fade as time passes. The song is now a personal favorite , now I cherish and enjoy it , the depth in the lyrics and the smoothness in the voice,
Except before my history exams , I have always been thankful for people being forgetful. If not for that one quality , our brains would have been a total mess, Imagine remembering all the difficult times and hardships as clearly as they happened yesterday, I don’t think I would see a happy face ever, we would all carry so much baggage from our past. Thank god things are different and we can forget few things just like we remember few others. 🙂🙂🙂
