Roja Jaaneman Lyrics
Tujh bin tarse naina
Dilse na jaati hai yaadein tumhaari
Kaise tum bin jeena
Roja sweetheart, you represent my heartbeat. Without you, my eyes feel deprived. Memories of you refuse to disappear. So how am I supposed to live without you?
WORD- Roja: Rose, Jaaneman: Sweetheart, Naina: Eyes, Yaadein: Memories
Flowers have been used as a literary tool in poetry since ages. The Language of Flowers, is known as Floriography, where flowers were used as a language to secretly communicate.
They were used as symbols for sending subtle and secret messages of love, desire and hope. Incidentally, Rishikumar the protagonist in movie, plays the role of a cryptologist- the practice of studying hidden languages.
Aansu mein tu hai
Aankhein band kar loon
Toh mann mein bhi tu hai
Khwaabon mein tu saanson mein tu Roja
You exist in my eyes and in my tears. When I close them, I envision you in my heart and you're present in my dreams too. It's clear that this woman is now an omnipresent figure in his life.
WORD- Aansu: Tears, Mann: Heart, Khwaab: Dream.
Phool jo khile thay vo shool ban gaye hain kyon
Jee raha hoon isliye dil mein pyaar hai tera
Zulm seh raha hoon kyon intezaar hai tera
The blowing breeze touched me as though you did. Why have the flowers that blossomed once, now become thorns?
Suggesting that what were once pleasant experiences are now painful moments.
Now, I live solely because there’s love for you in my heart. Why do I have to tolerate injustice as I wait for you? He cannot bear this separation.
WORD- Shool: Thorns, Zulm: Injustice, Seh: To tolerate.
Kayamat se pehle saamne tu aayegi
Kahan hai tu kaisi hai tu Roja
My life wouldn’t end until it meets you. You’ll be standing before me, before the resurrection arrives. Where are you? Roja, how are you?
Kayamat: Resurrection/Last day.
Meet nahin paas mein chaandni tu laut ja
Phool kyon khilo ho tum zulf nahin vo yahan
Jhuke jhuke aasmaan meri hansi na uda
O cool breeze, what is your business here? My lover is not with me, O moonlight, you must return. The weather is great but unfortunately for him, he cannot truly enjoy it like he usually does.
O flowers, why are you blooming? Those tresses are not here today. O stooping sky, don’t make fun of me.
The sky descending is a possible reference to darkness and difficult times on the horizon.
WORD- Meet: Lover, Zulf: Tresses, Jhuke - Descending/Stooping.
