dilon ki mohabbat ko baandhen kyun haaye re
dilon ki mohabbat ko baandhein kyun haye re
daayre.. daayre.. daayray.. daayrey..

Why do they limit the love of hearts,
limitations, ah, these limitations..

hain kyun faasle darmiyaan le ke aaye re,
hain kyun faaslay darmiyan le ke aaye re,
daayre.. daayre.. dayre.. daayrey..

why have they got these distances between us,
limitations, ah, these limitations..

kaanch ke wo khwaab naazuk thay hamaare saare,
chhoone se hi TooTne lage..
mannaton mein umr bhar ka saath jinka maanga
hamsafar wo chhooTne lage..

all those glass dreams of ours were fragile,
they started breaking at the mere touch..
those, whose togetherness I had asked for in prayers,
those companions are getting lost..

naa marnaa munaasib, jiyaa bhi na jaaye re..
na marna munasib, jiya bhi na jaaye re..
dayre.. dayre.. dayre.. dayre..

it doesn’t seem right to die, nor am I able to live..
limitations, ah, these limitations..
