Hoshwalon Ko Khabar Kya Bekhudi Kya Cheez Hai
Ishq Kijiye Phir Samajhiye Zindagi Kya Cheez Hai

What do conscious people know, What being passionate is like
Fall in love, and then you will understand, What life is.

Unse Nazar Kya Milin Roshan Fizaein Ho Gayee
Aaj Jana Pyaar Ki Jaadugari Kya Cheez Hai

The moment our eyes met, the atmosphere brightened
Today I realized, What is the magic of love

Khulti Zulfon Ne Sikhayee Mausamon Ko Shayaree
Jhukti Aankhon Ne Bataya Maikashi Kya Cheez Hai

Opening tresses of hair taught the seasons poetry
Lowering (her) gaze (she) explained what being intoxicated feels like

Hum Labon Se Keh Na Paaye, Unse Haal-E-Dil Kabhi
Aur Woh Samjhe Nahin Ye Khamoshi Kya Cheez Hai

I could never tell her, The state of my heart
And she never understood, What my silence meant
