Chorus


DIL SE RE

ik suraj nikla tha The sun had come out;
kuchh paara pighala tha the temperature had dropped.
ek aandhi aa'ii thii A whirlwind kicked up 
jab dil se aa niklii thii just as a cry shot forth from the heart, 
dil se re from the heart.
               
CHORUS:  
dil to aakhir dil hai na After all, a heart is only a heart;
miiTHii sii mushkil hai na it's a sweet hardship.
piya piya piya na piya Beloved...
jiya jiya jiya na jiya Life itself...
dil se re from the heart
         
vo patte patjhaD ke peDo.n se utare the Two fall leaves fell from the trees,
peDo.n kii shaakho.n se utare the from the tree branches they fell.
phir utne mausam guzare The seasons passed,
vo patte do bechare and those two poor leaves,
phir ugane ki chaahat me.n in their desire to rise (sprout),
vo saharo.n se guzare passed over the desert.
vo patte dil dil dil the Those leaves were our hearts...
vo dil the dil dil dil the They were our hearts...
dil hai to phir dard hoga If you have a heart, you'll know pain in your lifetime,
dard hai to dil bhi hoga and if you feel pain, it will be because you have a heart. 
mausam guzarte hi rahate hai The seasons keep passing.
dil hai to phir dard hoga If you have a heart, you'll know pain in your lifetime,
dard hai to dil bhi hoga and if you feel pain, it will be because you have a heart. 
mausam guzarte hi rahate hai The seasons keep passing
dil se  through my heart.
Chorus  
ba.ndhan hai.n rishto.n mein  There are restrictions within relationships,
kaa.nTo.n kii taare.n hai.n chains of thorns,
patthar ke darwaaze diiwaare.n doors and walls of stone. 
bele.n phir bhi ugatii hai.n But even so, the leaves take root,
aur gunche bhi khilte hai and even so, their buds bloom
aur chalte hai afsaane and their romance succeeds.
kirdar bhi milte hai The characters in the story meet,
vo rishte dil dil dil the and their bonds are of the heart, 
vo dil the dil dil dil the they are of the heart...
gam dil ke paksh chulbule.n hai.n The heart's miseries are fleeting.
paani ke ye bulbule hai Like bubbles of water
bhujhte hai bante rehte hai they're extinguished, and then they form again,
gam dil ke paksh chulbule.n hai.n The heart's miseries are fleeting.
paani ke ye bulbule hai Like bubbles of water
bhujhte hai bante rehte hai they're extinguished, and then they form again,
dil se dil se dil se re from the heart....

ishq par zor nahii.n hai ye vo aatish ghaalib Love is an uncontrollable fire, o Ghalib! (Ghalib: Urdu poet. This is a shair, or verse, from one of his 'ghazals' -- a form of poetry in which the poet often finds a way to include his own name in the verse. The verse is brilliant because 'gaalib' means 'overcoming' or 'triumphant,' so the line could literally read, 'No one has control over love; it is a 'gaalib,' or triumphant, fire)
jo laga'e na lage aur bujhaa'e na bane It cannot be started on a whim, and cannot be extinguished if you try
ishq par zor nahii.n hai ye vo aatish ghaalib Love is an uncontrollable fire, o Ghalib!
aankho.n ne kuch aise chhuua Her eyes touched me like so - 
halka halka uns hua lightly, lightly, and I was infatuated;
dil ko ye mahasuus hua it filled my heart. 
tuu hii tuu tuu hii tuu jiine ki saarii khushbuu You, only you, you are all the sweetness of living!
tuu hii tuu tuu hii tuu aarzuu aarzuu You are my longing, my longing itself
terii jism kii aa.nch ko chuute hii The flame of your body
meri saa.ns sulagane lagatii hai fires my breath; 
mujhe ishq dilaase deta hai desire urges me onward.
mere dard bilakane lagte hai My pain begins to understand its purpose:  
tuu hii tuu tuu hii tuu jeene ki saari khushbuu You, only you... You are all the sweetness of living.
tuu hii tuu tuu hii tuu aarzuu aarzuu You, only you... You are my longing, longing itself!
chhuuti hai mujhe sargoshi se You touch me like a whisper,
aankho.n me.n ghulii khaamoshii se  your eyes softened by silence.
mai.n farsh pe sajjaade karta huu.n On the floor I make my prayers,
kuch hosh me.n kuch behoshii se some conscious, some unconscious.
Chorus  
terii raaho.n me.n ulajha ulajha huu.n I am entangled in your ways,
terii baaho.n me.n ulajha ulajha entangled in your embrace.
sulajhaane de hosh mujhe Let me disentangle my wits;
terii chaaho.n me.n uljha huu.n I am snared by your desires!
mera jiina junuun mera marna junuun I am possessed by living, possessed by dying; 
ab iske siva na koii sukuun save this, there is no peace.
tuu hii tuu tuu hii tu satara.ngii re You, only you,
tuu hii tuu tuu hii tuu manara.ngii re you, only you, of the many-colored spirit...
ishq par zor nahii.n hai ye vo aatish ghaalib Love is an uncontrollable fire, o Ghalib!
jo lagaa'e na lage bhujaa'e na bhuje It cannot be started on a whim, and cannot be extinguished if you try
ishq par zor nahii.n hai ye vo aatish ghaalib Love is an uncontrollable fire, o Ghalib!
mujhe maut kii god me.n sone de Let me sleep in the lap of death!
terii ruuh me.n jism Dubone de Let me drown my body in your soul,
satara.ngii re manara.ngii re you of the many colors, of the many-colored soul
