मत जा रे
Please Don’t Go
00 :11
दूर तलक हैं सूना फ़लक
अब ढूँढें तुझको कहाँ है?
तू है किधर  आए नज़र,
 सुन ले यह इल्तिजा
The horizon is empty until far away
now I shall search it for you, where is it?
Where are you, (that) you don't come in sight?
Come, listen to this supplication:
00 :22
मत जा रे मत जा [x4]
तेरी कमी है साँसें थमी हैं,
तनहा है दिल मेरा 
Don’t go, please don’t go
Wherever you are absent, my breaths have stopped
My heart is lonely …
01 :10
यह कौन सा रिश्ता हैं,
मेरी आँखों से रिसता हैं
[both lines x2]
दो दिल के पाटों में
यह बटता हैं पिसता हैं
[both lines x2]
ज़िद पे बस दिल को
अपने तू ऐसे  झुटला
What sort of relationship is this?
it is tricking from my eyes!
[both lines x2]
In between the millstones of two hearts,
it is being divided and ground
[both lines x2]
Just out of stubbonness
do not belie your own heart
01 :39
मत जा रे मत जा [x4]
तेरी कमी है साँसें थमी हैं,
तनहा है दिल मेरा 
Don’t go, please don’t go
Wherever you are absent, my breaths have stopped
My heart is lonely …
02 :09
दिल इश्क़ से बिंधा है,
एक ज़िद्दी परिंदा है
[both lines x2]
उम्मीदों से है घायल,
उम्मीद पे ज़िंदा हैं
[both lines x2]
आस भरी अरदास को
तू ऐसे  ठुकरा
The heart is pierced/bound with love,
it is like a stubborn bird
[both lines x2]
It is wounded by hope
but alive based on love
[both lines x2]
My plea is full of aspiration,
don't reject it like this
02 :39
मत जा रे मत जा [x4]
तेरी कमी है साँसें थमी हैं,
तनहा है दिल मेरा 
Don’t go, please don’t go
Wherever you are absent, my breaths have stopped
My heart is lonely …
