This song penned by inimitable Javed Akhtar, makes an impassioned appeal to a companion, asking her to leave the pain of yesterdays behind and embrace the present and future with courage. At times life pushes us through such severe tests that we curl up in our shell and wish to stay there forever, afraid of any more pain. In such times, a gentle and empathetic voice of a confidante is a balm that can soothe and push us to start living to the fullest again. Music by the very talented Ram Sampath and the unique voice of Vishal Dadlani give this song depth and weight that rings in your ears for a long time.

Original Lyrics-Jee Le Zaraa

Main hoon gumsum tu bhi khamosh hai
Sach hai samay ka hi sab dosh hai
Dhadkan dhadkan ik gham rehta hai
Jaane kyu phir bhi dil kehta hai
Jee le zara, jee le zaraa
Kehta hai dil jee le zara
Aye humsafar, aye humnawa
Aa paas aa jee le zara

Hai zindagi mana dard bhari
Phir bhi isme ye raahat bhi hai
Main hoon tera aur tu hai meri
Yunhi rahe hum, ye chahat bhi hai
Phir dil ke dil se, pul kyu toote hain
Kyun hum jeene se itne roothe hain
Aa dil ke darwaaze hum khole
Aa hum dono jee bhar ke ro le
Jee le zara, jee le zaraa
Kehta hai dil jee le zara
Aye humsafar, aye humnawa
Aa paas aa jee le zaraa

Gham ke ye baadal guzar jaane de
Ab zindagi ko nikhar jaane de
Chhod de ab yaadon ke dukh sehnaa
Sun bhi le jo dil ka hai kehnaa
Jee le zaraa, jee le zaraa
Kehta hai dil jee le zaraa
Aye humsafar, aye humnawa
Aa paas aa jee le zara

Translation of Jee Le Zaraa by bollywoodtarjuma

We are both parched for words,
and fate is the one blame,
each heartbeat comes with an ache,
Still a voice rises from inside,
My companion, my soul mate, come close,
live a bit, just live a little bit more,
says the heart encore.

Life may be full of pain,
but one relief keeps us sane,
at least we are together,
and wish the same forever.
How did the bridge between our hearts shatter?
Why did we turn our backs to all that matters?
Let’s please open the doors of our core,
keep crying till we tear no more.
My companion, my soul mate, come close,
live a bit, just live a little bit more,
says the heart encore.

Let the wind carry away,
all clouds of gloom today.
Let the life blossom again,
and set aside all memoirs of pain.
Please heed the heart’s encore,
my companion, my soulmate, come close,
live a bit, just live a little bit more.
