Agar Tum Saath Ho – Meri zubani

Unwavering sea stare at a wavering heart

Says Sea,  “Come take a walk of destiny, O me hearty

Thou can drown in your emotions, but not in me

Let my waves wash your sorrow away

Let them sooth thy cold as stone heart”

He takes the leap of faith

Sails on foot on the unwavering sea when he hears a bird sing,

Pal bhar thahar jaao
Dil ye sambhal jaaye
Kaise tumhe roka karun
Meri taraf aata har gham phisal jaaye
Aankhon mein tum ko bharun
Bin bole baatein tumse karun
‘gar tum saath ho..
Agar tum saath ho

Behti rehti..
Nahar nadiya si teri duniya mein
Meri duniya hai teri chaahaton mein
Main dhal jaati hoon teri aadaton mein
‘Agar tum saath ho

As mellifluous a voice it is but

It fails to stop a heart setting like the evening sun

He pauses, turns back and cries,”

Teri nazron mein hai tere sapne
Tere sapno mein hai naraazi

Mujhe lagta hai ke baatein dil ki 

Hoti lafso ki dhokebaazi

Tum Saath ho, ya na ho, kya fark hai

Bedard thi zindagi bedard hai”

The unwavering sea now begins to waver

He guides the wind to pick up speed

The only sound that ought to be heard

Is me tidal waves crushing the spirit of the humming bird

Wave of emotion no longer sweep him off his feet

For his heart is now filled with the Black Sea

The stone cold marches on to his cold destiny 

But he again hears the bird sing,

Palkein jhapakte hi din ye nikal jaaye
Bethi bethi bhaagi phirun
Meri taraf aata har gham phisal jaaye
Aankhon mein tum ko bharun
Bin bole baatein tumse karun
‘gar tum saath ho
Agar tum saath ho

The raging sun dives into the sea

Failing to move the stone cold heart which rhymes, 

Teri nazron mein hai tere sapne
Tere sapno mein hai naraazi
Mujhe lagta hai ke baatein dil ki
Hoti lafzon ki dhokebaazi
Tum saath ho ya na ho kya fark hai
Bedard thi zindagi bedard hai

Darkness reigns in 

The moon and the stars now stare at him

The cruel tidal waves though fail to crush the humming bird 

Her voice now percolating through the deep black sea

Triggering a feint wave of emotion in the sinking heart

As now even the stone cold sings,

Agar tum saath ho
Dil ye sambhal jaaye
(Agar tum saath ho) – Stone cold 
Har gham phisal jaaye
(Agar tum saath ho)
Din ye nikal jaaye
(Agar tum saath ho)
Har gham phisal jaaye
