Bulleya Lyrics

Verse 1

The bird within my soul flutters

I can’t spot the island of tranquillity yet

What am I supposed to do?

Bulleya is a song about desire. The word Bulleya refers to Bulle Shah- a humanist and philosopher. He was considered as someone who provided solutions to social problems that plagued the world. Ranbir Kapoor seems to be lost and wishes to attain peace at a time of distress. He probably is blinded by lust and hence cannot think with clarity. He looks to Bulle Shah for help.

Why don’t you reveal your splendour for once?

Even if it’s a lie, give me some comfort

What am I supposed to do?

He probably knows that the woman he desires doesn’t love him back. But he doesn’t care whether her feelings are genuine or a lie. He’s enamoured by her very presence and only wishes to live in the moment.

Like a butterfly from Kabul, I’m an emigrant

I’ll stay for an instant and fly away in a moment

My body like these narrow paths, in search for paradise

I turn along with you wherever you turn to
