Subtle sounds (like footsteps) have their own voice

Seekho na naino ki bhasha piya
Learn the language of the eyes, beloved

Keh rahi tumse yeh khamoshiyaan
The silence is saying this to you

Seekho na lab to na kholungi mein
Learn, because I will not open my mouth

Samjho dil ki boli
Learn the conversation of the heart

(Repeat of the above)
Seekho na naino ki bhasha piya
Keh rahi tumse yeh khamoshiyaan
Seekho na lab to na kholungi mein
Samjho dil ki boli
Seekho na naino ki bhasha piya

Chhoona seekho, tum hawa ko
Learn to touch the breeze

sananana san sananana san kehti hay kya
(and) understand what it says as it blows

Padna seekho, salvato ko
Learn to read the wrinkles

Maathe pe yeh balkhaa ke
That play across the brow (frown)

Likhti yeh jaa
Writing (something meaningful)

ahaton ki hai apni zubaan
soft, subtle sounds (like footsteps) have their own voice

In mein bhi hai ek daastan
They also enfold a story

ahaton ki hai apni zubaan
soft, subtle sounds (like footsteps) have their own voice

In mein bhi hai ek daastan
They also enfold a story

Jao, jao, jao, jao, jao piya
Go, go, go, go beloved (like saying in mock anger "go away!")

Seekho na naino ki bhasha piya
Keh rahi tumse yeh khamoshiyaan
Seekho na piya lab to na kholungi mein
Samjho dil ki boli
Seekho na naino ki bhasha piya

Thaire paani, jaisa lamha
This moment is like still waters

Chedo na ise hil jaayengi gehraayiyaan
Do not touch/tease them, their depths could be disturbed (from their slumber)

Thanti saanson, kay sheher mein
In the city of held breaths (we are quiet, holding our breath)

Dekho to zara bolti hain kya parchaaiyaan
Look at what the shadows are saying

Kehne ko baaki hai kya
What else remains to be said?

Aankhon ne sab keh to diya
The eyes have said it all

Kehne ko baaki hai kya
Aankhon ne sab keh to diya

Haan, jao, jao, jao, jao, jao piya
Seekho na naino ki bhasha piya
Keh rahi tumse yeh khamoshiyaan
Seekho na piya lab to na kholungi mein
Samjho dil ki boli
Seekho na naino ki bhasha piya
