So, it has happened again after Ek Villain‘s music and I am besotted with a song. And this time, it’s “Tu Hai ke Nahi” from upcoming Bollywood movie ROY.
Since last three weeks, I have enjoyed this song atleast 25 times every single day. And mind you, there is no exaggeration here. I literally mean ‘atleast’ 🙂 So, whats so special about this one?? Ummmm… everything …. lyrics by Abhendra, singing by Ankit Tiwari , the music! It’s a love song in its own way. A person in love (Oh! so much!!) thinks his lover is everywhere. What great lyrics!! Ankit Tiwari’s voice has done justice to the amazing lyrics. Tulsi Kumar’s unplugged version is mesmerizing.
Words, especially translation of this song will never make you understand the true beauty and melody of the song. But, for my friends who don’t know hindi, here we go (source bollymeaning.com) : Mujh se hi aaj mujhko mila de, dekhoon aadaton mein tu hai ke nahi Har saans se poochh ke bataa de Inke faaslon mein tu hai ki nahi main aas paas tere aur mere paas.. tu hai ke nahi.. tu hai ki nahi… One that can make me meet myself come, let me see if you’re in my habits or not, Ask every breath and tell me Whether you are there in their differences or not.. I am close to you and close to me Whether you are or not.. Whether you are there or not… Daudte hain khwaab jin pe raasta wo tu lage Neend se jo aankh ka hai waasta wo tu lage Tu badalta waqt koi khushnumaa saa pal mera Tu wo lamha jo na thehre aane waala kal mera You seem to be the path on which my dreams run, you seem to be the relationship that is there between sleep and the eyes You’re the changing time some happy moment of mine You’re the moment that does not stop, my tomorrow.. Main aas-paas tere aur mere paas.. Tu hai ke nahi Tu hai ki nahi… In labon pe jo hansi hai inki tu hi hai wajah Bin tere main kuch nahi hoon mera hona bewajah Dhoop teri na pade to dhundhla sa main lagoon Aake saansein de mujhe tu taaki zinda Main rahoon The smile that is there on my lips, you’re the reason for it I’m nothing without you, my existence is useless If your sunshine doesn’t fall on me, I seem to be dull Come, give me breaths, so that I remain alive.. Main aas-paas tere aur mere paas… Tu hai ki nahi
