00 :30
मैं यहाँ हूँ मुंतज़िर
तुम वहाँ हो बेख़बर
[both lines x2]
और हलके हलके से मन चाहे
माँगा जिस को वह मिल जाए
Here I am, expectant
you are there, unaware
[both lines x2]
and gradually, my heart prays
to join the one (I) asked for
01 :40
यह रात थम जाए सौ साल को
और एक हो जाएँ हम तुम
Would this night stand still for a hundred years
and you and I be one!

03 :25
दूर से आती हैं परियाँ
सुनाती हैं इक कहानी मुझे बार बार
तुम यहाँ पे मगर
वह, वहाँ पे करे तेरा इंतज़ार
अब मानो नहीं हार
Fairies come from afar
and narrate to me a story again and again
You are over here
but (he) is over there waiting for you
provided you don't become dispirited
03 :42
सोचो , चल पड़ो
जाओ,   डरो
जानते हो तुम उस के दिल का राज़
शायद घबराएगी, वह  कह पाएगी
तुम  डरना  पीछे हटना
कह देना दिल की बात
Don't think, just go
Go, no, don't fear
You know (her) heart's secret
Perhaps she will be confused, won't manage to speak (out)
Don't you fear, don't you fall back
say the word of your heart!
04 :26
मैं यहाँ हूँ मुंतज़िर
तुम वहाँ हो बेख़बर
और हलके हलके से मन चाहे
माँगा जिस को वह मिल जाए
Here I am, expectant
you are there, unaware
and gradually, my heart prays
to join the one (I) asked for
05 :00
यह रात थम जाए सौ साल को
और एक हो जाएँ हम तुम
