Zara Zara
Bombay Jayashri Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

यूँ ही बरस बरस काली घटा बरसे
हम यार भीग जाएँ इस चाहत की बारिश में
तेरी खुली खुली लटों को सुलझाए
तू अपनी उँगलियों से
मैं तो हूँ इसी ख्वाहिश में
सर्दी की रातों में
हम सोये रहें है एक चादर में
हम दोनों तन्हाँ हो
ना कोई भी रहे इस घर में
ज़रा ज़रा महेकता है बहेकता हैं
आज तो मेरा तन बदन




मैं प्यासा हूँ
मुझे भर ले अपनी बाहों में

Line by Line Meaning

ज़रा ज़रा बहकता है महकता है
My heart flutters and my soul fills with a sweet fragrance


आज तो मेरा तन बदन
Today my body and soul


मैं प्यासी हूँ
are thirsty


मुझे भर ले अपनी बाहों में
fill me up in your embrace


है मेरी कसम तुझको सनम
I swear to you, my beloved


दूर कहीं ना जा
do not go far away


ये दूरी कहती है
this distance tells


पास मेरे आजा रे
come close to me today


यूँ ही बरस बरस काली घटा बरसे
It keeps raining heavily just like this dark cloud continuously for long


हम यार भीग जाएँ इस चाहत की बारिश में
Let's get drenched in the pouring rain of love


मेरी खुली खुली लटों को सुलझाए
you tangle my loose hair


तू अपनी उँगलियों से
with your fingers


मैं तो हूँ इसी ख्वाहिश में
I am in this same desire


सर्दी की रातों में
In cold nights


हम सोये रहें एक चादर में
we sleep under one blanket


हम दोनों तन्हाँ हो
we both are alone


ना कोई भी रहे इस घर में
there is no one else in this house

(Zara zara bahekta hai, mahekta hai
Aaj to mera tan badan, main pyaasi hoon
Today my body is becoming a little intoxicated
It is becoming fragrant, I am thirsty
Mujhe bhar le apni baahon mein) - 2
Fill me in your arms
Hai meri kasam tujhko sanam, door kahin na jaa
I have a vow for you lover, don't ever go far
Yeh doori kehti hai paas mere aaja re
This separation is saying, come close to me

Yunhi baras baras kaali ghata barse
The black clouds drop rain like this
Hum yaar bheeg jaaye is chaahat ki baarish mein
We will be drenched in this rain of love
Meri khuli khuli laton ko suljhaaye
You will untangle my open hair
Tu apni ungliyon se main to hoon isi khwaahish mein
With your fingers, I have this desire
Sardi ki raaton mein hum soye rahe ek chaadar mein
In the cold night we will sleep under one sheet
Hum dono tanha ho, na koi bhi rahe is ghar mein
We are both alone, no one else is in this home
Zara zara bahekta hai, mahekta hai
Aaj to mera tan badan, main pyaasi hoon
Today my body is becoming a little intoxicated
It is becoming fragrant, I am thirsty
Mujhe bhar le apni baahon mein
Fill me in your arms
Aaja re aa re
Come, oh come

Tadpaaye mujhe teri sabhi baatein
All your words make me longing
Ek baar ae deewane jhootha hi sahi pyaar to kar
One time, crazy boy, love me whether true or not
Main bhooli nahin haseen mulaaqaatein
I have not forgotten our beautiful meetings
Bechain karke mujhko mujhse yun na pher nazar
Making me restless don't turn away from me like this
Roothega na mujhse, mere saathiya yeh vaada kar
My soulmate, make a promise that you won't turn on me
Tere bina mushkil hai jeena mera mere dil mein
Without you, there is a difficulty of living in my heart
Zara zara bahekta hai, mahekta hai
Aaj to mera tan badan, main pyaasi hoon
Today my body is becoming a little intoxicated
It is becoming fragrant, I am thirsty
Mujhe bhar le apni baahon mein
Fill me in your arms
Hai meri kasam tujhko sanam, door kahin na jaa
I have a vow for you lover, don't ever go far
Yeh doori kehti hai paas mere aaja re
This separation is saying, come close to me
Aaja re, aaja re, aaja re
Come, come, oh come😍😍

No comparison, this flute has been played by naveen Kumar, the man who played Bombay theme song
