Kaise, kategee zindagee, tere baghair,

Paaoo.nga har shay me.n kamee, tere baghair,
IN EVERYTHING WILL I FIND DEFICIENCY, IN YOUR ABSENCE,

Tere baghair,

Kaise, kategee zindagee, tere baghair
HOW WILL THE LIFE GO ON IN YOUR ABSENCE,

Tere baghair....
IN YOUR ABSENCE...


phool khile.n tau yoo.n lage,
WHEN THE FLOWERS BLOOM, IT APPEARS AS IF

phool nahee.n, yeh daagh hai.n,
THEY AREN’T THE FLOWERS, THEY’RE STAINS,

phool khile.n, tau yoo.n lage,
WHEN THE FLOWERS BLOOM, IT APPEARS AS IF

phool nahee.n, yeh daagh hai.n,
THEY AREN’T THE FLOWERS, THEY ARE STAINS,

taare falak pe yoo.n lage.n,
THE STARS IN THE SKY APPEAR AS IF

jaise bujhe chiraagh hai.n,
THEY’RE THE LAMPS EXTINGUISHED,

Aag lagaaye chaandnee, tere baghair
THE MOON BEAM IGNITES THE FIRE, IN YOUR ABSENCE,

Tere baghair,
IN YOUR ABSENCE,

Kaise, kategee zindagee, tere baghair,
HOW WILL THE LIFE GO ON IN YOUR ABSENCE,

Tere baghair,
IN YOUR ABSENCE.

Tere baghair,
IN YOUR ABSENCE.


Chaand ghata me.n chhup gaya,
THE MOON’S HIDDEN IN THE CLOUD,

Saara jahaa.n, udaas hai,
THE ENTIRE WORLD IS SAD,

Chaand ghata me.n, chhup gaya,
THE MOON’S HIDDEN IN THE CLOUD,

Saara jahaa.n, udaas hai,
THE ENTIRE WORLD IS SAD,

Kehti hai.n dil ki dha.dkane,
THE HEARTBEATS SAY THAT

Tuu kahee.n aas paas hai,
YOU’RE AROUND SOMEWHERE,

Aa ke ta.dap raha hai jee,
COME, FOR THE HEART IS YEARNING,

Tere baghair,
IN YOUR ABSENCE,

Tere baghair,
IN YOUR ABSENCE,

Paaoo.nga har shay me.n kamee, tere baghair,
IN EVERYTHING WILL I FIND DEFICIENCY, IN YOUR ABSENCE,

Tere baghair,
IN YOUR ABSENCE,

Kaise, kategee zindagee, tere baghair
HOW WILL THE LIFE GO ON IN YOUR ABSENCE,

Tere baghair,
IN YOUR ABSENCE...

Tere baghair.
IN YOUR ABSENCE.

Life without love is like a tree
Without blossom and fruit.
