Lyrics: Amitabh Bhattacharya
Singer: Sreeram Chandra
Ek din kabhee jo khud ko taraashay
Meri nazar se tu zaraa, haaye re
Aankhon se teree kyaa kyaa chhupaa hai
Tujh ko dikhaaoon main zaraa, haye re
Ik ankahee si daastaan daastaan
Kehne lagegaa aainaa
Jo ho raha hai pehlee dafa hai wallah
One day, if you sometime admire* yourself
from my eye,
What all is hidden from your eye,
I shall show you..
The mirror will begin to say an unsaid story
God is great,
whatever is happening, is for the first time,
[The context of Subhanallah - Glory be to God - here is that the poet/singer is praising God for making his beloved so beautiful.]
Meri khaamoshi se baatein chun lenaa
Unn ki Doree say taareefein bun lenaa
Kal nahee thee jo aaj lagtee hoon
Taareef meree hai khaamakhaa
Tohfaa hai teraa meri adaa
To pick up talks from my silence,
and weave praises from the thread (of these talks),
(as a result)
I today feel like what I was not until yesterday..
My praise is false..
My style is your gift (for praising me)..
Ek din kabhi jo khud ko pukaaray
Meri zubaan se tu zaraa, haye re
Tujh mein chhupee si jo shaayari hai
Tujh ko sunaaoon main zaraa, haye re
Ye do dilon kaa waasta waasta
Khul ke bataayaa jaaye naa
One day if you call yourself
from my tongue,
The poetry that is hidden in you,
I'll say that poetry to you..
This relation of two hearts,
cannot be said openly
[and so he'd be able to tell about it better with the help of poetry.]
* Taraashna means to chisel, the word is commonly used for jewels. However, the meaning that the lyricist seems to be taking here is to admire.
