Heer Lyrics Translation, Meaning (Jab Tak Hai Jaan)

Movie: Jab Tak Hai Jaan
Music: A R Rahman
Lyrics: Gulzar
Singer: Harshdeep Kaur

Heer is a song that takes into account the stories of Heer-Ranjha, where Ranjha left his beloved to get married to another suitor in the beginning, and Mirza-Sahebaan, where Mirza takes his beloved on a horse. And so, in the song, the girl wants to be called Sahebaan instead of Heer, even though Mirza and Sahebaan die at the end of story.

Heer Heer na akho odiyo, Main te Sahibaan hoye,
Ghodi leke aaye le jaaye, Ghodi leke aaye le jaaye,
Le jaaye Mirza koi, Le jaaye Mirza koi,


Don't call me Heer, o friends, I've become Sahibaan
I hope he comes on a horse and take me away,
I wish some Mirza comes for me and takes me away

Ohde je hi main te oh mere warga,
hansda ae sajra sawere varga,
ankha bandh kar la te thande hanere varga

I am like him, he is like me only..
He smiles like it's morning,
and if he closes eyes, it's like cold dark..

ohde je hi main te o Mirza mere varga

Naal naal tur na te vith rakhna
hadd rakh lena wich dil rakhna,
chhanve chhanve paawe assi teri parchhawe tur na

walk with me (close to me) only, don't keep any distance in between,
mark a boundary, and keep the heart in between.
I have to walk under your shade only..

ohde je hi main te o Mirza mere varga
