मैं तो बादलों से दूर जाऊँगी
मैं तो अपनी ही सुर पाऊँगी
है जो [crazy, crazy] सपने मेरे
सारे चुन के मैं बुन आऊँगी
I will fly through the clouds
I will find my own tune
These are crazy dreams of mine
which will collect and weave together
00 :31
हाँ, माना
इस दुनिया की हूँ ही नहीं
मैं अपनी ही दुनिया बनाऊँगी
Yes, I acknowledge it
I am not of this world
I will make my own world

कि एक ज़िंदगी मेरी
सौ ख़्वाहिशात
हाँ, एक ज़िंदगी मेरी
सौ ख़्वाहिशात
मैं पूरी मैं पूरी
मैं पूरी तरह
एक ज़िंदगी मेरी
सौ ख़्वाहिशात
मैं जीना मैं जीना
मैं जीना मैं पूरी तरह

Because I have one life
(and) a hundred dreams
Yes, I have one life
(and) a hundred dreams
I (will live), to the fullest
to the fullest
I have one life
(and) a hundred dreams
I must live, must live,
I must live to the fullest

सब की रोक है टोक है
नोक है झोंक है
पर दिल में फिर भी [hope] है
है ?
Everyone's hindering
so much bickering
Still there’s hope in my heart,
isn’t there?
01 :27
लाइफ़ थोड़ी [hard] है
अनदेखा [card] है
[but] हम भी तो स्टार हैं
हैं ?
Life is a bit hard
It is an unseen card
But I am also a star,
am I not?

कि माना,
इस दुनिया की हूँ ही नहीं मैं
अपनी ही दुनिया बनाऊँगी
हो  हो  
So I acknowledge (it),
I am simply not of this world
I will make my own world
Ho! Oh! … Ho! Oh! …

Yes, because I have one life
and a hundred dreams
I must live, must live
to the fullest
