Chandni raatain

Chandni raatain, chandni raatain
moonlit nights

Sab jag soye hum jagein
everyone else is sleeping, i'm awake
taaron se karain batain
talking to stars
ho..chandni raatain, chandni raatain
on moonlit nights

Takte takte tooti jaaye aas
i keep on waiting and my hope crumbles
piya na aaye re takte takte
my baby doesnt come but i still wait
Sham savere dard anokhe uthe
there is a pain in heart day and night
jiya ghabraaye re sham savere
and my soul is scared
raaton ne meri neend loot lee
because the nights have stolen my sleep
din ke chain churaye re
and the days have stolen my rest
dukhiya aakhen dhoond rahi hain
sadden eyes keep looking
kahin pyaar ki baatain
for a moment or two of love
chandi raataein .. ho chandni raatein
during moonlit nights

Pichhli raat main hum yeh soch ke
a few nights ago thinking about that
chupke chupke roye re pichhli raat main
i silently cried in the night
Sukh ki neend main meet hamare
peacefully my baby sleeps
desh paraye soye re sukh ke neend main
in a foreign country

Dil ke dhadkanen tujhe pukare
my heart calls out for u
Aaja balam aayi baharain
please come baby the time is ours
Baith ke tanhai main karlain
and we will sit in the calmness
sukh dukh ki do batain
and talk about our sadness and happiness
chandni raatain, chandi raatain
on moonlit nights

Sab jag soye hum jagein
everyone else is sleeping, i'm awake
taaron se karain batain
talking to stars
ho..chandni raatain, chandni raatain
on moonlit nights
