Tujhse Naraz Nahi Zindagi Lyrics Meaning & Translation

Tujhse Naraz Nahi zindagi Lyrics are beautiful and breathtaking. Shekhar Kapur is one of the film makers I have deep respect for. In Masoom, a indian adaption of the novel Man, Woman and Child, he created what was undoubtedly one of the best movies on relationships.

This Gulzar song that beautifully captured the complications of life ended up receiving legendary status. It has words that anyone going thru the trial and tribulations of life can relate to.

Here is the translation of the song from the book 100 Lyrics

Tujhse Naraz Nahi zindagi Lyrics Meaning

Lyrics: Gulzar
Album: Masoom
Music: R.D. Burman
Vocals: Anup Ghoshal / Lata Mangeshkar

Tujhse naaraaz nahi zindagi, hairaan hoon main
Oo hairaan hoon main
Tere masoom savalon se pareshaan hoon main

I am not angry with you, Life
Simply baffled
By your innocent questions

Jeene ke liye socha hi nahi, dard sambhalane honge
Muskuraoon to, muskurane ke karz utaarne honge
Muskuraoon kabhi to lagata hai
Jaise hontonn pe karz rakhaa hai

Never thought that in order to live
I would need to hold on to pain
Never thought life would extract
A price for every smile
Now – whenever I smile
It feels like these lips are pursed in debt

Zindagi tere gum ne humey rishte naye samajhaye
Mile jo humey dhoop main mile chhaanv ke thande saaye

Life, the trials you threw my way
Have taught me relationships anew
The comforts of shade I only found
Under the bright scorching sun

Aaj agar bhar ayi hai, boondein baras jaayengi
Kal kya pata inke liye aakhen taras jayengi
Jaane kahan ghum kahan khoya
Ek aansu chhupake rakha tha

Today my eyes have welled up with tears
Soon they will burst forth, I’m sure
Tomorrow, who knows, these sore eyes perhaps
Will long for the sight of more –

Where have I lost that lone drop of tears
Which I had tucked away so safely?
