Agg lavan majboori nu,

If your love is poison,
I’ll drink it all.

और जीवन और मृत्यु की जल्दबाजी को,
अगर तुम्हारा प्यार जहर है,
तो मैं उसे झिझक बिना पी जाऊंगा।

Lyrics: Aana si oh nahi aaya,
Dil baang baang mera takraya,
Kaga bol ke das jaavein,
Pavan gheyo dee choori nu

Meaning:
He said he’d come but he didn’t, my heart jumped.
Let the crow tell me why, and enjoy the sweet feast.

Meaning in hindi:

उसने कहा था कि वह आएगा लेकिन वह कभी नहीं आया, मेरा दिल झूल गया।
कौवा मुझे बताए कि क्यों, और मीठी उपहार पर आनंद ले।

Lyrics: Raawaan ch baawan ch oh nu lukawaan,
Koi mainu naa roke, Mere dhol judaiyan di,
Tainu khabar kivein hove,
Aa jaave dil tera, Pura vi na hove

Meaning:

I’ll hide him in my love, no one can stop me.
My love, do you know the pain of being apart?
I hope you fall in love, and may it leave your heart incomplete.

Meaning in hindi:

मैं उसे अपने प्यार में छुपा लूंगी, कोई मुझे रोक नहीं सकता।
मेरा प्यार, क्या तुम्हें पता है कि अलग होने का दर्द कैसा होता है?
मैं आशा करती हूं कि तुम प्यार में पड़ जाओ, और यह तुम्हारे दिल को अधूरा छोड़ दे।

Lyrics: Aa chalein, le ke tujhe,
Hai jahaan silsile,
Tu hai wahi, hai teri kami,
Bana de, saaja de, panah de hume

Meaning:

Let’s go, taking you with me, to a world of connections.
You’re the one, I feel your absence.
Give me life, decorate me, give me shelter.

Meaning in Hindi:
चलो, तुम्हें साथ लेकर, जहां सभी प्रेमी मिलते हैं।
तुम ही हो, मुझे तुम्हारी कमी महसूस होती है।
मुझे जीवन दो, मुझे सजाओ, मुझे अपनी बाहों में ले लो।
