jaane tu mera kya hai…
(I don’t know how much you mean to me…)
jaane tu mera kya tha…
(I don’t know how much you meant so far…)
tu hi mera har pal…
(you were in my each moment…)
tu hi har lamha tha…
(you were in my each memory…)

jaane kaisi kashish hai…
(I don’t know what kinda wish is this…)
jaane kaisi khalish hai…
(I don’t know what irks me these days…)
kyun ye saansein thami hain…
(why these breaths have ceased nowadays…)
aankhon mein kyun nami hai…
(and why these eyes remain moist …)

hai ye dosti humko yaheen tha…
(I was sure that this was friendship…)
dosti aur kuch bhi nahi tha…
(friendship, and nothing more than that…)
hai ye kaisa dard nayaa sa…
(what kind of new pain is this now?…)
kyun dil lagta toota toota,
(why the heart seems so shattered these days…)

jaana, dil jaana, kaise maine na jaana…
(love, my love, I can’t know why I never knew…)
ke pyaar yahi hai…
(that this was love indeed…)
ye jaane tu, ya jaane na…
(whether you knew it or not…)

jaana, dil jaana, kaise tune na jaana…
(love, my love, hoe come you never knew it…)
ye pyaar hi hai…
(that this indeed was love…)
haan jaane tu, ya jaane .. na…
(whether you knew it or didn’t…)

jaane tu mera kya hai…
jaane tu mera kya tha…
tu hi mera har pal…
tu hi har lamha tha…

ho….
hoti thi tujhse subha har din ki…
(each day’s morning used to start with you…)
teri dopahar se shaam ki dhun thi…
(you were the tunes from the noons to the evenings…)
hoti thi raatein teri baahon mein khoye…
(and the nights were spent lying in your arms…)
tere khayaalon mein hi jaage aur soye…
(you were in my thoughts, whether in slee or  while awake…)

tu jo nahi to kya, rahaa…
(now that you aren’t there, nothing remains…)

umm mm… hmm mm…

jaane tu mera kya hai…
jaane tu mera kya tha…
tu hi mera har pal…
tu hi har lamha tha…

jaane kaisi kashish hai…
jaane kaisi khalish hai…
kyun ye saansein thami hain…
aankhon mein kyun nami hai…

jaana, dil jaana, kaise maine na jaana…
ke pyaar yahi hai…
ye jaane tu, ya jaane na…

jaana, dil jaana, kaise tune na jaana…
ye pyaar hi hai…
haan jaane tu, ya jaane .. na…
haan jaane tu, ya jaane .. na…
