na hai yeh paana
na khona hi hai
tera na hona jaane
kyun hona hi hai
tum se hi din hota hai
surmaiye shaam aati hai
tum se hi
tum se hi
har ghadi saans aati hai
zindagi kehlati hai
tum se hi
tum se hi
na hai yeh paana
na khona hi hai
tera na hona jaane
kyun hona hi hai

aankhon mein ankhein
teri
baahoon mein baahein
teri
mera na mujhmein kuch raha
hua kya
baaton mein baatein
teri
raatein saugatein
teri
kyun tera sab yeh ho gaya
hua kya
main kahin bhi jata hoon
tum se hi mil jata hoon
tum se hi
tum se hi
shor mein khamoshi hai
thodi si behoshi hai
tum se hi
tum se hi

aadha sa wada
kabhi
aadhe se jayada
kabhi
jee chaahe kar lu is tarah
wafa ka
chhode na chhoote
kabhi
tode na tute
kabhi
jo dhaga tum se jud gaya
wafa ka
main tera sarmaya hoon
jobhi main ban paya hoon
tum se hi
tum se hi
raaste mil jaate hai
manzile mil jaati hai
tum se hi
tum se hi
na hai yeh paana
na khona hi hai
tera na hona jaane
kyun hona hi hai

Tell Me Why

(Why, why, why, why?)

(Why?)
I really wish I could explain it baby,
(Why?)
it's just the world is kinda crazy baby,
(Why?)
ain't no pretty way to paint it baby,
(Why?)
don't cry,
dry your eyes.

September 11th
I woke up about 7AM
West Coast time,
French toast and my
turkey bacon,
taking my time awakin',
turning my TV on,
to my surprise
saw what everybody in the world saw.
Me and my children,
images were chillin',
my son said, 'Daddy, were there people in that building?'
A cold sweat,
frozen, with a lump in my chest,
I heard his question,
couldn't bring my lips to say 'Yes' to 'im.
That night at my son's side,
he cried and prayed
for the ones who died in the World Trade,
his palms to God,
seeds of qualms with God.
He just kept on pressin' me,
wanna know why.
Then, one week later,
our bombs were dropped,
we seein' them
on CNN,
they just won't stop
the infrared images
of brutal attack.
He said, 'Daddy, now we killin' em back.
Right? Right?'

(Why?)
I really wish I could explain it baby,
(Why?)
it's just the world is kinda crazy baby,
(Why?)
ain't no pretty way to paint it baby,
(Why?)
don't cry,
dry your eyes.
(Why?)
I really wish I could explain it baby,
(Why?)
it's just the world is kinda crazy baby,
(Why?)
ain't no pretty way to paint it baby,
(Why?)
don't cry.

Souls are captured,
dreams are stolen,
hearts are broken,
evil blatantly rewarded.
Hate surrenders,
love exalted,
hope elated,
negativity is shorted.

Honest to God,
why is the bomb always gettin' the last word?
And why did her uncles have to molest her?
And why did all them cops have to be shootin' to kill?
And why did all them priests have to act so ill?
Tell me, why did James Byrd Jr. have to be touched?
Tell me, why did Malcolm and Martin depart from us?
Tell me, why did that sniper make the little boy shoot?
And why is human life always denied for loot?
Tell me, why did Mandela have to live in a cage?
Why did my brother Sterling have to die at that age?
Tell me, why did Reginald Denny deserve his fate?
And why the fuck can't love seem to defeat hate?
Tell me, why is it so hard for all the children to eat?
Why did 'Pac and Biggie Smalls have to fall in the street?
Tell me, why did Jam Master Jay have to go that way?
Please,
what am I supposed to say to my kids,
when they say,
'Why?'
I really wish I could explain it baby,
(Why?)
it's just the world is kinda crazy baby,
(Why?)
ain't no pretty way to paint it baby,
(Why?)
don't cry,
dry your eyes.
(Why?)
I really wish I could explain it baby,
(Why?)
it's just the world is kinda crazy baby,
(Why?)

(Why?)
don't cry,

Can't explain it baby,
life is just really crazy.
I mean if it's world wars
or the life of a little baby,
we got more stores
than they got rice under Buddha lazy.
You live four scores
and still it be driving you crazy.
But for me,
I try to see the bright side.
Sometimes it'd be like
the goodness be tryin' to hide,
be tryin' to flee,
but it can't,
it's deep inside.
Sweetie,
you be the light for others,
make 'em believe in God.

Souls are captured,
dreams are stolen,
hearts are broken,
evil blatantly rewarded.
Hate surrenders,
love exalted,
hope elated,
negativity is shorted.

Yeh Kahan Mil Gaye Hum / यह कहाँ मिल गए हम

yeh kahan mil gaye hum
yeh kahan mil gaye hum
asman bhi
lo has diya
yeh kahan mil gaye hum
yeh kahan mil gaye hum
asman bhi
lo has diya
har nazara bhi
khil gaya
parbatonke raaste
rasto pe hum
chahto ke waste
chahto me hum
chal mere sanam

yeh kahan mil gaye hum
yeh kahan mil gaye hum
shayad ruthega
sara jahan
gum ke chayegi
woh badaliyaan
bahakega ye jahan
saath honge hum
aaye na woh duriyan
paas honge hum
chal mere sanam

duniya se hai bhala ye sama
diware dale na darmiyaan
dilwalon ke liye hai saja
dekho na
fulonse mehka gulsitan

gungunati hai hava
saath gaye hum
dolgi nadi jahan
bahte jaye hum
chal mere sanam

mana hai pyaar ye jahan
tumpe thahare fir bhi nigah
dil mera tarta hai yahan
har lamha
tumko na chodu jane ja
pass mere aao tum
yaar har janam
jism badalenge magar
ruh wahi sanam
chal mere sanam

yeh kahan mil gaye hum
yeh kahan mil gaye hum

Bas Ek Pal / बस एक पल

Looking for Bas Ek Pal translated to English? Try the Bollywhat.com Lyrics Forum.

Tu ek baar jo pyar se mujhko chu le toh har zakhm bhar jayega
zara iltejah sunke deewane dil ki mujhe apane dil se laga
tere pyar mein
aaise jiye ham
jala hai yeh dil
yeh aankhen hui nam
bas ek pal
bas ek pal
bas ek pal

Hamare khayalon mein khwaabon mein yaadon mein baaton mein rehte ho tum
badhake main yeh haath chuna jo chahu toh pal bhar mein hote ho gum
tere pyar mein
aaise jiye ham
jala hai yeh dil
yeh aankhen hui nam
bas ek pal
bas ek pal
bas ek pal

Suna hai mohabbat ki taqdeer mein
likhe hai kai andhere ghane
tabhi aaj shaayad sitaaren sabhi
zara sa hi roshan hue
mere haath ki in lakeeron mein likhe abhi aur kitne sitam
khafa ho gayi hai khushi waqt se ho rahe hai meharbaan gam
tere pyar mein
aaise jiye ham
jala hai yeh dil
yeh aankhen hui nam
bas ek pal
bas ek pal
bas ek pal
