Itna toh samajh hai aata
Tu aag ka dariya hai
Mujhe tairna nahi aata -2
Tujhe doobna nahi aata -2
Iss Tarah describes the complex relationship between Bindu and Abhimanyu, two completely different personalities.

Woh shehar teri gaflat ka
Tu raat ka suraj hai
Mujhe jaagna nahi aata -2
Tujhe guroobna nahi aata -2
His city is a city of love and affection while her city is one that’s filled with carelessness and negligence. A reference to how their personalities are poles apart.
Bindu is the sun that rises at night and he has no idea how to be awake during this time. Describing his plight, he says this woman is like a sun that doesn’t know how to set/disappear.
WORD- Ulfat – Love/Affection, Gaflat- Carelessness, Guroobna – Sunset.
Chhat toh hai chhat se judi o
Chaand bhi chhup jaaye
Haathon mein na aaye
Khidkiyan toh hai khuli
Bindu reckons their stars don’t align. After all, a home can be made only when two roofs join. Even the moon begins to hide when they meet, they can never get hold of it. This despite the windows being open.

And in this manner, sometimes they’re wrong and sometimes they’re right. They wonder if they’re made for each other or not?

Once again, he highlights their unique differences. Among these reckless winds that blow across, she keeps revolving crazily like a Phirki (holding reel of a kite) and he wonders why?
He has no idea how to get a hold of her because Bindu is free. While realizing that she herself doesn’t know how to restrain herself. She was born to fly.
WORD- Sarphiri – Reckless, Baandhna – Tie, Thaamna – Contain/Restrain.
Takreyengi toh kabhi
Raste bhatak jaayein
Galiyan badal jaayein
Badlenge dil na kabhi

Their roads may wander apart and their lanes may eventually change. But one thing that will never change is their affection for each other.
