WORD- Khidmat: Service, Chand: Few, Gazlein: Poems, Ijazat: Permission.
Aankhein dhatoora teri batein nasha
Viral sa fever tera mujhpe chadha
Hua dil pe hai dent aadhi de commitment
Karegi na repent banja meri half girlfriend
Her eyes remind him of jimson weed, suggesting that they’re intoxicating. And the way she speaks is addictive. Just a few conversations with Riya and now it feels like he’s on the onset of fever.
She’s had a massive impact on him. Madhav knows that she might not be ready to fully commit to him just yet, so instead, he asks her for half a commitment and be his half girlfriend. He assures her that she won’t regret this.
WORD- Dhatoora: Jimson weed, a hallucinogenic, Nasha: Addiction, Aadhi: Half.
But I keep on thinking
That this love will not survive
You and me are living a fantasy
And we better make it stop
Or we’ll fall too deep
Riya, however, stays cynical. Although she has love for him in her heart, she can’t help but think that this relationship will not last for long.
She feels that they are living in their own bubble, and that they should stop with their imagination and get out of these fantasies otherwise they will be hurt in the long run.
Aise kaise jaane doon
Mere dil mein -3
I gotta let you know that I love you so
But I gotta let you go
But he isn’t ready to listen. He cannot just stay quiet, not say anything and watch her simply walk away.
She states that she does love him, but she has to let go of him in one way or the other. Riya reckons eventually they have to separate for each other’s good.
Oh baby tune kaahe mujhe block kiya
Na hogi story yeh end kar ek duje ko ban
Honge twitter pe trend
Ban ja meri half girlfriend
Madhav has been crazy for Riya. He stalked her Facebook profile, but she went ahead and blocked him.
But he is adamant that their story won’t end even if they ban each other. Their story will be famous and even trend on Twitter. All he wants is for her to be his half girlfriend.
WORD- Kaahe: Why, Ek duje: One another
I can’t help but feel a little sad inside
We have had some good times you and me
But we both know that’s just really ain’t meant to be
She knows they cannot be together for reasons unknown to the both of them. And she knows they must say goodbye to one another.
But deep down, she is disappointed with the way they might have to end this relationship. They have had their share of fun and smiles together, but now it can’t continue any longer.
He lets her know that, over time, he’s become emotional and wants her to see this. How is he to simply let her go so abruptly?
WORD- Sentiya: Sentimental/emotional
Local launda main hoon
Aise main kaise jaane doon
Kaisi hai yeh saza aadha to de maza
Aise main kaise jaane doon
Riya is from a well-to-do family and speaks English, while he’s simply from a local town. Despite everything, he cannot let go of her.
This feels like punishment. He asks her, even if she cannot be his girlfriend, she still can offer half her commitment and be his half girlfriend.
WORD- Angreji: English, Launda: Boy, Saza: Punishment.
He is stubborn and has decided that he isn’t going to let her go so easily. Madhav hopes she realizes that her life would be less entertaining without him around.
