Jiya jiya re jiya re: Lyrics, Translation (Jab Tak Hai Jaan)

Movie: Jab Tak Hai Jaan
Music: A R Rahman
Lyrics: Gulzar
Singer: Neeti Mohan

Chali re, chali re,
junoon ko liye
katra, katra, lamho ko piye
pinjre se uda, dil ka shikra,
khudi se maine ishq kiya re
jiya jiya re jiya re jiya re
jiya jiya re jiya re jiya re
jiya jiya re jiya re jiya re
jiya ho..

I began (on my path),
with my passion,
drinking moments, little by little,
the hawk of a heart, flew away from the cage,
I loved my own self,
heart, o heart, I lived to the wish of my heart..

chhote chhote lamhon ko
titili jaise pakdo to
haathon mein rang reh jaata hai
pankhon se jab chhodo to..
waqt chalta hai,
waqt ka magar
rang utarta hai akira
udte udte phir ek lamha
maine pakad liya re..

catch hold of small moments,
like a butterfly..
the color stays in the hand,
when you leave from its wings,
time moves,
but the color of time wears away..
and then I caught hold of a flying moment..

jiya jiya re jiya re..

halke halke, pardon mein,
muskurana achcha lagta hai
roshni jo deta ho to
dil jalana achcha lagta hai
ek pal sahi, umr bhar use
saath rakhta akira..
zindagi se phir ek vaada maine kar liya re..

it feels good to smile slowly,
hidden behind curtains (with just oneself)
if it gives you light,
it feels good to burn your heart away..
if only for a moment,
the heart keeps it with itself for life..
and then I made a promise to my heart

jiya jiya re jiya re..

Can you please tell me the meaning of the word "Angira"? If it is used to refer to "heart" then I didn't understand the line: "waqt ka magar rang utarta hai Angira.." . Can you please explain? Thanks!

If we're not going wrong, it's Anushka's name in the movie, that now we know is Akira. Will confirm and update the same. Thanks.

Snowbell said...

Please remember that it's lamho ko diye, no piye + Akira not Angira. I think Ishqshava is just too good, right?
