Kal ho naa ho is one of those songs that had a deep influence on me. I was in college at the time this song was popular and listening to it multiple times over a period of time influenced the way I thought and made choices.

The song talks about the mortality of life and about cherishing the present moment. It speaks about holding on to the people that truly love you and to listen to your heart. Written by Javed Akhtar, this song also boasts of a really beautiful video.

Lyrics: Javed Akhtar
Album: Kal Ho Na Ho
Music: Shankar Ehsaan Loy
Vocals: Sonu Nigam

Har Ghadi Badal Raha Hai Roop Zindagi
Chaav Hai Kabhi, Kabhi Hai Dhoop Zidnagi
Har Pal Yahan, Jee Bhar Jiyo,
Jo Hai Sama, Kal Ho Naa Ho

Every moment life changes its shape
Sometimes there is shade, Sometimes there is sunlight
Every moment here, Live to your heart’s content
No matter what the season, There may be no tomorrow

Chaahe Jo Tumhe Poore Dil Se
Milta Hai Woh Mushkil Se
Aisa Jo Koi Kahin Hai
Bas Vahi Sabse Hasin Hai

One who loves you whole-heartedly
It is difficult find such a person
If there is someone like that somewhere
That person is the most beautiful

Us Haath Ko Tum Thaam Lo
Woh Meherbaan Kal Ho Naa Ho
Har Pal Yahan
Jee Bhar Jiyo
Jo Hai Sama
Kal Ho Naa Ho

Grab onto that person’s hand
That well-wisher may not be there tomorrow
Every moment here,
Live to your heart’s content
No matter what the season
There may be no tomorrow

Palko Ke Leke Saaye
Paas Koi Jo Aaye
Lakh Sambhalo Paagal Dil Ko
Dil Dhadke Hi Jaaye
Par Sochlo, Is Pal Hai Jo
Woh Dastan Kal Ho Naa Ho

In the shadow of your eyelashes,
When someone comes near
You try a million times to reason with your mad heart
Your heart still skips a beat
But think, what is there in this moment
That story, might not be there tomorrow
