ख़्वाहिशों का चेहरा क्यूँ
धुँधला सा लगता है
क्यूँ अनगिनत ख़्वाहिशें हैं
ख़्वाहिशों का पहरा
क्यूँ ठहरा सा लगता है
क्यूँ ये ग़लत ख़्वाहिशें हैं
Why does the face of desires
seem like blurred?
Why are there countless desires?
Why does the guard of desires
seem to be stand still?
Why are these desires wrong?
00 :34
हर मोड़ पर
फिर से मुड़ जाती हैं
खिलते हुए पल में मुरझाती हैं
हैं बेशरम
फिर भी शर्माती
हैं ख़्वाहिशें
At every twist (of the road)
they turn around
In a blossoming moment, they wither
They are shameless
but still shy
They are desires
00 :53
ज़िंदगी को धीरे धीरे
डसती हैं ख़्वाहिशें
आँसू को पीते पीते
हँसती हैं ख़्वाहिशें
Desires slowly/gradually,
bite/sting life
drink/supress tears
01 :12
उलझी हुई कशमकश में
उम्र कट जाती है
In tangled confusion
the lifetime is passed
01 :37
आँखें मिच जाए
जो उजालों में
किस काम की ऐसी रौशनी
  भटका के 
लाए जो किनारों पे
किस काम की ऐसी कश्ती
Eyes which are shut
in brightness
What's the use of such a light?
Oh, oh! What led you astray
and doesn't bring you ashore
What's the use of such a boat?
01 :55
आँधी हर धीरे से लाती है
वादा कर धोखा दे जाती है
मुँह फेर हंस के
चिढ़ाती है ख़्वाहिशें
They gradually bring storms
Having made promises, they keep on breaking them
After turning their faces and laughing,
desires tease.
02 :14
ज़िंदगी को धीरे धीरे
डसती हैं ख़्वाहिशें
आँसुओं को पीते पीते
हँसती है ख़्वाहिशें
Desires slowly/gradually,
bite/sting life
drink/supress tears
02 :33
उलझी हुई कशमकश
में उम्र कट जाती है.
In tangled confusion
the lifetime is passed
