Such are the matters of heart
There was a time when we sat through the night
There were stories and there were tales
And there were more, even when the night gave way to a dawn so pale
It wasn’t just a night, there were so many.
We got to a time, when we would talk not so often
But still you would say and I’d listen
I’d say and you’d listen.
Then we would just check on each other
At first, like someone we cared for
and then like just acquaintances
Our silences are our conversations today
Not that our hearts have had each other’s fill
But the words of the heart don’t quite reach the tip of our tongues
I would like to hear it from you
And you’d rather have me say it.
We live our lives a moment at a time
And there will be a day, when with regret
We may think why didn’t we say anything
How did it matter if the other did not.
Kaisey rishtey hain yeh
Kabhi baithe the saath raat bhar.
Kisse aur baatein baaki they tab bhi
Jab thi tamaam raat guzri.
Aur ek nahi, kayi baar guzri.
Fir kabhi kabhi hone lagi guftagu
kuchh hum kehte aur kuchh woh sunte
Kuchh hum sunte aur woh kehte.
Aaya woh din bhi jab sirf poochhne lage khairiyat bhar hi
Pehle apno ki tarah
Fir parayon ki tarah.
Aaj yeh aalam hai
Khamoshi hi se hoti hain baatein.
Baat yeh nahi ki dil fir gaya hai
Bas dilon ke alfaaz ab labon tak nahi aate
Woh sochte hain hum kuchh bolein
Humein yeh zidd woh hi kuchh keh dein
Ik ik pal guzarta hai,
Ik din woh bhi aayega jab dono hi sochenge
Ki hum hi kuchh keh dete
Woh na bolein to na hi sahi.
