The Endless Night

दिन ढ़ल जाए, हाय रात ना जाए
Din dhal jaaye, haaye raat na jaaye
The day fleeted by but alas the night seems endless!
तू तो न आए, तेरी याद सताए
Tu to na aye, teri yaad sataaye
You are nowhere close but your dear memories torture

प्यार में जिनके सब जग छोड़ा और हुए बदनाम
उनके ही हाथो हाल हुआ ये, बैठे हैं दिल को थाम
अपने कभी थे, अब हैं पराए
Pyaar mein jinake sab jag chhoda aur huye badanaam
Unake hi haathon haal hua yein, baithhe hain dil ko thaam
Apane kabhi they, ab hain paraaye
The one, for whose love I left my world and became notorious,
Having a hard time believing, the same hands has brought this onto me
Once who belonged to me, now, is a stranger


ऐसी ही रिमझीम, ऐसी फुहारें, ऐसी ही थी बरसात
खुद से जुदा और जग से पराए, हम दोनों थे साथ
फिर से वो सावन अब क्यों न आए?
Aisi hi rimjhim, aisi fuhaaren, aisi hi thi barasaat
Khud se juda aur jag se paraae, ham dono they saath
Fir se wo saawan ab kyon n ae?
It was the same pitter-patter, the same downpour.
It was a similar rainy day.
Alienated from the rest of the world, I was beside myself
as we were together.
Why doesn't that monsoon come back now?

दिल के मेरे पास हो इतनी, फिर भी हो कितनी दूर
तुम मुझसे, मैं दिल से परेशान, दोनों हैं मजबूर
ऐसे में किस को कौन मनाए?
Dil ke mere paas ho itani, fir bhi ho kitani dur
Tum mujhse, mein, dil se pareshaan, donon hain majbur
Aise mein kis ko kaun manaaye?
You are so faraway,even though you reside in my heart.
You are bothered by me and I am bothered by my heart.
Both are helpless. Who will soothe whom in this situation?
