You’re here with me (Tum ho paas mere)

Another of those rare combos, when nearly everything about the song is magical, perhaps because when lots of people who are indeed at the level of sorcerer in their own field, get together, they come to create a master-piece that itself becomes spell-binding… An extremely light weighted and easy to ears, yet so dense and deeply touching song, penned by a talented love song writer, Hindi/Urdu poet Irshad Kamil, while a score given by a musical genius A.R. Rahman. And it’s sung by an outstanding voice talent: Mohit Chauhan, for a great sufi-sticated love stories director Imtiaz Ali‘s film Rockstar.

This song is about an experience of “the understated unity in love”…

Translation:

When you’re here,
you’re here with me like…
as much as I feel you,
I find myself close to you…

From wherever we’re…
to wherever we can…
let’s take-off to some place,
without destination in mind,
without anyone’s consent…
that’s how we should meet…

No one should be there,
to hold our steps more…

When you’re here,
you’re here with me like…
as much as I feel you,
I find myself close to you…

Tell me how will this world
snap you away from me?
When you’re me, I am you,
why would we then worry?

You’re there for me,
for me you’re here like,
I have got myself lost in you,
but you I’ve come to found anew.

– Dedicated to the beloved, lovers want to have more of…

Tum ho
Tum ho paas mere
saath mere ho tum yun
Jitna mehsus karoon tumko
utna hi paa bhi loon

Tum ho mere liye
mere liye ho tum yun
khud ko main haar gaya tumko
Tumko main jeeta hoon

Kahin se… kahin ko… bhi
aao bewajah chalein…
Puche beena – kisi se
hum milein…

Bandihsein na rahi koi baaki
Tum ho paas mere
saath mere ho tum yun
Jitna mehsus karoon tumko
itna hi paa bhi loon

Kis tarah chinega
mujhse yeh jahaan tumhe
Tum bhi ho mein,
to kya fikar ab humein

Tum ho mere liye
mere liye ho tum yun
Khud ko main haar gaya
tum ko mein jeeta hoon…

– Original lyrics by Hindi/Urdu poet Irshad Kamil.
