Akhiyan Udeekdiyan Dil vaajaan Maarda - Nusrat Lyrics and Meanings



Mahi ve tere bajoN dil deya meharma ve
sada jeuuna kere chaj daa ay
meri loo loo vich meri nas nas wich
teri yaad da tumbaa vajdaa ay

Without you
Without you, my heart's desire
There's no point in living without you
Every vein sings your name

Akhiyan udeek diyan dil vajaa maarda
aja pardesiya vaasta ii pyaar da

My eyes wait for you, my heart calls you 
Come back home for the sake of our love

Jado da tu rus giya sade nal dholnaa
bhul gaya kawaaN nu banairay utte bolna

Since you left, I have felt utterly alone
Crows don't sing on the window sill

KaliaN nai meraa ji lagda 
bahaaraan aake lang chaliyaan
tu chetti aja dholna

I cannot bear this loneliness
Spring has come and it has gone
But still i wait for you

Hun , je na aaya fir kehre wele aawega?
Panchi murr gharaN nu aa gaye tu vi aaja dholna
tenu akhiyan udeek diyan

If not now, when will you come?
The birds of spring are here again
Why do you not come too?

Arriaa na kar beparwaiaaN ve 
rutaaN pyaar karan diyaN aayiaN
//chetti aaja dholna tenu akhiyan udeek diyan

Don't fail me, I beg to you, 
In this loving season, come back
Come back, my love, come back My eyes waiting…

PiplaaN te peengaaN payiaaN 
ral mil geet de gaundiaN sayiaN
//chetti aaja dholna tenu akhiyan udeek diyan

My friends call celebrate and sing
Sing the songs of love
Won't you come too, my love?..

RawaN tak tak thakh gayi aaN meiN
kaliaN reh reh ak gayi aaN meiN
ik ik pal dil gin ke guzaar da
aaja pardesiya vasta ii pyaar da
aaja tenu akhiyan udeek diyan-

I watch the streets and roads
I am forlorn, waiting for you
I count each moment
Each minute
Come back, my love


Uth uth jaan namazi masjid menu tatti nu teriyaN tangaN
Hun te aaja ve aaja ve… chheti aaja dholna

The devout go to the mosque to pray
But I just sit watching the way
Now, come back, my love, come love…

Bhul gayiaaN te rus gaye chaa ve
aj pata laga ay vichora ki bala ae
aaja tenu akhiyan udeek diyan-

Happiness has turned its face away
Joy has been banished from my life
Come love, My eyes wait for you to come…

Sajna ve tere bajoN lagda na jee ve 
jithe jaa ke beh gaya uthe tera kii ve 
aaja tenu akhiyan udeek diyan-

lover, I can no longer live
No longer live without you
What do you get by doing this to me?

Poore di hawa chale dil mera dolda
kamb kamb jawa jadoN kaaN kitte bolda
aawaiN te sunawaN meiN vichora kiwe marda
aaja pardesiya vasta ii pyaar da
aaja tenu akhiyan udeek diyan-

The easterly breeze brings only sorrow
I shudder when I hear the birds sing
If only you could see how I suffer
I beg you, please come back to me
Come My eyes waiting…

Tere waloN puchde ne galiaN de baal ve 
gum sum howaN jedoN karde sawaal ve
marda ay taanay menu mausam bahaar da
aaja pardesiya vasta ii pyaar da
aaja tenu akhiyan udeek diyan-

The street urchins make fun of me
I walk by, lost in though, alone
The seasons taunt my loneliness
Come back, come back, my love

Aaja dholna tenu akhiyan udeek diyan
chetti aaja dholna tenu akhiyan udeek diyan (Chants)

Come love, Come love, My eyes wait for you to come…
Come back, my love, come back My eyes waiting…

Akhiyan udeek diyan dil vajaa maarda


Altered Lyrics

Mahi ve tere bajoN dil deya meharma ve
sada jeuuna kere chaj daa ay
meri loo loo vich meri nas nas wich
teri yaad da tumbaa vajdaa ay

Without you
Without you, my heart's desire
There's no point in living without you
Every nerve and vein sings your name

Akhiyan udeekdiyan dil vajaa maarda
aja pardesiya vaasta ii pyaar da
Aa Ja tainu akhiyaan udeekdiyaan

[should be akhiyaan udeekdiyaan - udeekda is one word, udeekdiyaan is feminine plural for "waiting"]

My eyes wait for you, my heart calls you 
Come back home for the sake of our love
Come back, my eyes wait for you

Jado da tu rus giya sade nal dholnaa
bhul gaya kawaaN nu banairay utte bolna

Since you left, I have felt utterly alone
Crows don't sing on the window sill



Sab galaan karde jeen diyaan
mar mukeyaan da koi ki lagda
bahaaraan aake lang chaliyaan
ik jee bajon nai ji lagdaa

tu chetti aja dholna
KaliaN nai meraa ji lagda 


I cannot bear this loneliness
Spring has come and it has gone
But still i wait for you

Hun , je na aaya fir kehre wele aawega?
Panchi murr gharaN nu aa gaye tu vi aaja dholna
tenu akhiyan udeek diyan

If not now, when will you come?
The birds of spring are here again
Why do you not come too?

is ghar meñ yā us ghar meñ 

is ghar meñ yā us ghar meñ 
tū kahīñ nahīñ hai 
darvāze bajte haiñ 
ḳhālī kamre 
terī bātoñ kī mahkār se bhar jaate haiñ 
dīvāroñ meñ 
terī sāñseñ soī haiñ 
maiñ jaag rahā huuñ

koī guuñj sī chakrātī phirtī hai 
bhūle-bisre gītoñ kī 
chāñdnī raat meñ khilte hue 
phūloñ kī damak hai, yahīñ kahīñ 
tere ḳhvāb 
mirī be-sāya zindagī par 
bādal kī sūrat jhuke hue haiñ 
yaad ke dasht meñ 
āñkheñ kāñTe chuntī haiñ 
mere haath 
tire hāthoñ kī ThanDak meñ 
Duube rahte haiñ 
āḳhir... terī miTTī se mil jaane tak 
kitne pal 
kitnī sadiyāñ haiñ 
is sarhad se 
us sarhad tak 
kitnī masāfat aur paḌī hai 
un rastoñ meñ 
kitnī bārisheñ baras ga.ī haiñ 
āñkheñ mirī 
terī rātoñ ko taras ga.ī haiñ
