Saale Sapne Lyrics
Ude ude baadal ka ek tukda
Kaise main todun
Doobe doobe dariya ka ek kona
These damn dreams! How do I break a part of the cloud that’s up above? How am I supposed to squeeze the corner of a deep river and make it my own?
The protagonist is frustrated since he has not yet been able to achieve his dreams. Lyricist, Kausar Munir uses some clever metaphors to describe how difficult his dreams and ambitions are.
WORD – Saale Saple – Damn Dreams, Dariya – River, Nichodun – Squeeze.
How do I spend these days and nights? I shall cut these sunny ropes and tie them to form a sack and get some shade.
A reference to how he will have to create something useful from nothing. That’s how challenging his dreams are.
WORD – Doriyan – Rope, Chaon – Shade, Boriyan – Bags.
These damn dreams! I have sacrificed myself for you. You are now deep within my veins. Now wherever you may be, I am coming there.
WORD – Sadke – Sacrifice, Nas- Veins.
Maine loriyan suna ke
Maine khud ko tha sulaya
So ja so ja so ja
Par tune battiyan jala di
Tune dhajjiyan uda di
Tune neend se uthaya
Abey saale sapne
I have stolen away the moon. I sang lullabies to myself and began to sleep. But these dreams light up my room, they tore me into shreds and woke me up from my sleep.
These damn dreams! His dreams and ambitions have given him many sleepless nights. Until he achieves them, he cannot rest completely.
WORD – Loriyan – Lullabies, Battiyan – Light, Dhajjiyan Uda – Make somebody look worthless.
But he is adamant on achieving his objective and doesn’t care about sleep. Now he shall stay awake night and day.
This man will make his dreams lose its conciseness and ultimately win. He will never let go of his ambitions.
He calls his dream a rascal but realizes he too is a madman. Eventually, they both hum the same song. He is as mad as his dreams.
WORD – Kameena – Rascal, Deewana – Madman.
Aaja ohad le mohabbat
Aaja tujhse kya chupana
Abey saale sapne
Mujhko bhi lat hai teri
Tujhko bhi chaska mera
Ek hi rasta tera mera
Aao na na na na
He has a message for his ambitious dream – “Let go of your rebellious nature and embrace my love for you”
“What can I possibly hide from you? Damn dream! I am addicted to you now and you have got a taste of my ambition as well. We both belong on the same path.”
WORD – Bagawat – Rebellion, Lat – Addiction, Chaska – Get a taste of.
