Kaminey Title Song Lyrics, Translation

Movie: Kaminey
Music and Singer: Vishal Bhardwaj
Lyrics: Gulzar

kya kare zindagi isko hum jo mile
iski jaan kha gaye raat din ke gile


What can life do that it has got me,
complaints of all the time have finished its life..
[i.e. the life of life itself]

meri aarzoo kameeni,
mere khwaab bhi, kaminey
ek dil se dosti thi
Ye huzoor bhi kaminey

my wish is mean,
my dreams are mean too..
there was a heart that I was friends with,
this dear too, is mean..

kya kare Zindagi isko hum jo mile
iski jaan kha gaye Raat din ke gile

kabhi Zindagi se maanga
Pinjare mein chaand laa do
kabhi laalten de ke
kahan aasman pe taango


Sometimes I asked the life,
to get me the moon in a cage..
Sometimes I gave it a lantern,
and asked it to be hanged in the sky..

jeene ke sab kareene
the hamesha se kaminey
kameene kameenay kamine, kaminey


All the ways of living life,
were mean since forever..
mean, mean, very mean..

meri daastan kameeni
mere Raastey kaminey
ek dil se dosti thi
Ye huzoor bhi kaminey

my story is mean,
my paths are mean too..
there was this heart that I was friends with,
this dear too, is mean..

jiska bhi chehra chheela
andar se aur nikla
masoom sa kabootar
naacha to mor nikla
kabhi hum kaminey nikle
kabhi doosre kaminey
kaminey kaminey kaminey kaminey


whenever I peeled a face,
it turned out to be something else (than it looked from the outside)..
an innocent pigeon,
when began to dance, turned out to be a peacock..
sometimes I turned out to be mean,
and sometimes it was others..
mean, mean, mean...

meri dosti, kamini
mere yaar bhi, kaminey
ek dil se dosti thi
Ye huzoor bhi kaminey


my friendship is mean,
and my friends are mean too..
there was a heart that I was friends with,
this dear too, is mean..
