میں تو بادلوں سے دُور جاؤں گی
میں تو اپنی ہی سُر پاوں گی
ہے جو [crazy, crazy] سپنے میرے
سارے چُن کے میں بن آؤں گی
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
ہاں، مانا
اِس دُنیا کی ہوُں ہی نہیں
میں اپنی ہی دُنیا بناؤں گی
Yes, I acknowledge it
I am not of this world
I will make my own world
00 :38
کِہ ایک زِندگی میری
سَو خواہِشات
ہاں، ایک زِندگی میری
سَو خواہِشات
میں پوری میں پوری
میں پوری طرح
ایک زِندگی میری
سَو خواہِشات
میں جینا میں جینا
میں جینا میں پوری طرح
[last 2 lines x2]
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
[last 2 lines x2]

سب کی روک ہے ٹوک ہے
نوک ہے جُهنک ہے
پر دِل میں پِھر بھی [hope] ہے
ہے نہ؟
Everyone's hindering
so much bickering
Still there’s hope in my heart,
isn’t there?
01 :27
لائِف تھوڑی [hard] ہے
اندیکھا [card] ہے
[but] ہم بھی تو سٹار ہیں
ہیں نہ؟
Life is a bit hard
It is an unseen card
But I am also a star,
am I not?
01 :36
کِہ مانا،
اِس دُنیا کی ہوُں ہی نہیں میں
اپنی ہی دُنیا بناؤں گی
ہو او ہو او 
So I acknowledge (it),
I am simply not of this world
I will make my own world
Ho! Oh! … Ho! Oh! …
01 :52
ہاں کِہ ایک زِندگی میری
سَو خواہِشات
میں جینا میں جینا
میں پوری طرح
[both lines x2]
ہو او ہو او 
Yes, because I have one life
and a hundred dreams
I must live, must live
to the fullest
[both lines x2]
Ho! Oh! … Ho! Oh! …
