chaiyya chaiyya hindi song lyrics (abridged translation)

he who has the shade of love upon his head

will have heaven beneath his feet

he who has the shade of love upon his head

 

come

shade of love

 

that friend who is like scent

whose language is like urdu

is my evening

night

my universe

that friend is my beloved

 

come

shade of love

 

a hidden flower is sometimes

somewhere

flaunting itself

if its scent floats then it comes into sight

make it into an amulet to wear

like a religious song it will come to you

 

that friend who is like a man’s integrity

she is my melody

she is my holy verse

she walks in splendour like the shining drops of morning dew

under her feet heaven moves

sometimes in the branches

sometimes in the leaves

upon the air I look for her traces

 

with love’s shade upon your head

come

shade of love

let my feet enter paradise

come

shade of love

 

I am the admirer of her beauty

she is fickle like the changes of sunlight and shade

she alters the hue of her radiance

I am the broker of colour and beauty
