Tu Jahaan / तू जहाँ (from Salaam-Namaste)

tu jahan main wahan
sang sang yuhn chaloon tere
jaise tera aasmaan
tu jahan main wahan
sang sang yuhn chaloon tere
jaise tera aasmaan

jo dhoop nikli chaaya ban jaaonga
jo ho tu akeli saaya ban jaaonga
jo uljhan mein ho mann main behlaoonga


tum aa gaye ho to jeena aaya hai
khushiyon ka tumne yeh jaal bichaya hai
khoya hai khudko ya sabh kuch paaya hai


tu jahan main wahan
sang sang yuhn chaloon tere
jaise tera aasmaan

ho ghum ke badal mujhpe tham jaane de
bechainiyo ko mujhse takraane de
dukhti ho koi baat mujhpe aane de


dil sochta tha ke koi apna ho
koi raaz na ho jo usse rakhna ho
aankhein na kholoon main shayad sapna ho


tu jahan main wahan
sang sang yuhn chaloon tere
jaise tera aasmaan

Dear Anonymous

I am just learning Hindustani and the Devanagari script. To help me learn, I find songs I like, and try to understand and pronounce the lyrics. I loved Tu Jahaan when I first heard it about a year ago, and I still weep every time I hear it. It's that moving for me.
