Ojhal

Teri umeed to kabhi ki ojhal ho chali

Ab to teri yaad bhi na aaye hai yahaan

Any expectations of you have faded long ago

Now, even your memory (longing) does not visit here

Jis raah par teri raah taka karti thi

Voh raah ab hamaari nazar maangti  hai

On the road where I used to wait open eyed/longingly for you

Now that road asks for my eyes

Tum kabhi us raah pe khud ko paao to

Yeh na kehna ki raah koi nikli hi nahin

If you ever find your self on that road (again)

Don’t ever say that there was no (other) way (to me)

Kuchh agar dharkanon ko piroya hota

Kuch agar lamhon ko sanjoya hota

Jo leher thi vo bhi hamaari hi hoti

Har shaam-o-sehar hamaari hoti

Had we strung together our heartbeats

Had we saved up some of our moments

The surge/the wave would have been ours

Every morn and eve would have been ours

Chalo achha hua dil toot gaya

Par kaash ye daaman ki khalish tumhaari hoti

It is good that my heart is broken

But I wish this prickling in the heart was yours
