Sanam Re



bhīgī bhīgī saṛkōṁ pē maiṁ I wait for you
tērā iṁtzār karūm̐ on the wet, wet streets
dhīrē dhīrē dil kī zamīn kō I put the foundations of my heart
tērē hī nām karūm̐ slowly, slowly in your name
xud kō maiṁ yūm̐ khō dūm̐ Would I lose myself in such a way
ki phir na kabhī pāūm̐ that I can't ever be found again!
haulē haulē ziṁdgī kō Now, I slowly, slowly
ab tērē havālē karūm̐ put my life in your custody
sanam rē, sanam rē, Beloved!
tū mērā sanam huā rē You became mine
[both lines x 2]
karam rē, karam rē, Kindness, kindness
tērā mujh pē karam huā rē your kindness occurred upon me
sanam rē, sanam rē, Beloved!
tū mērā sanam huā rē You became mine


tērē qarīb jō hōnē lagā hūm̐ As I have started to be close to you
tō ṭūṭē sārē bharam rē all my misconceptions broke
sanam rē, sanam rē, Beloved!
tū mērā sanam huā rē You became mine
[both lines x 2]


bādlōṁ kī tarah hī tō Like clouds,
tūnē mujh pē sāyā kiyā hai you made a shadow over me
bāriśōṁ kī tarah hī tō Like rains,
tūnē xuśiyōṁ sē bhigāyā hai you have soaked me with delights
ām̐dhiyōṁ kī tarah hī tō Like tempests,
tūnē hōś kō uṛāyā hai you have knocked off my consciousness
mērā muqddar sam̐vārnā hai yūm̐ You’ve arranged my destiny in such a way
nayā savērā jō lāyā hai tū if you have brought a new morning!
tērē saṁg hī bitānē haiṁ mujhkō I have to spend
mērē sārē janm rē all my lifetimes only with you
sanam rē sanam rē Beloved!
tū mērā sanam huā rē You became mine
[both lines x 2]
karam rē, karam rē, Kindness, kindness
tērā mujh pē karam huā rē your kindness occurred upon me
sanam rē sanam rē Beloved!
tū mērā sanam huā rē You became mine


mērē sanam rē mērā huā rē / mērā huā rē Oh, my beloved / it became mine
tērā karam rē, mujh pē huā rē your kindness / occurred upon me
[both lines x 2]
