Dohaz lyrics meaning

In this moment, she belongs to him, they’re together. But tomorrow, the situation may not be the same. What if something transpires and she changes her behaviour? 

What if he doesn’t remain the same either? Suggesting that in a moment, everything can change, hence he chooses to embrace these special moments.

WORD- Aalam – Situation.

Dohaz lyrics meaning

Their paths may get separated, they might eventually lose their way, walking together. Despite this, he would still love her. His feelings wouldn’t change one bit.

WORD – Raaste – Paths, Main phir bhi tumko chahunga – I’d still love you.

FACT- Lyricist, Manoj Muntashir wrote Phir Bhi Tumko Chahunga during his trip to Kashmir, 16 years back.

Dohaz lyrics meaning

He would die in her love but still keeping loving her like always. She might even silence his entire presence and end this relationship. But he’d still sing melodies about her love. 

FACT- The last line of this verse is inspired by Ek Pyar Ka Nagma Hai – a classic track from the 1972 Hindi movie – Shor. That song was sung by legends, Mukesh and Lata Mangeshkar.

WORD- Nagme – Melodies, Khamoshi - Silence.

Dohaz lyrics meaning

He accepts that Riya is a necessity in his life, comparing her to the air that’s necessary to breathe. 

He’d search for her without ever giving up, like a pair of feet that look for the earth to walk upon. Riya beings a sense of calm in his life.

WORD- Zaroori- Necessity, Talashun – Search.

Dohaz lyrics meaning

It doesn’t matter, whether he ends up laughing or crying. Like a madman, he’d keep looking for her. It doesn’t matter if she loves him tomorrow or not. 

Nor does it matter if he has the permission to love her.  With the broken pieces of his heart, he’d stay waiting, hoping she eventually realizes his worth. 

WORD – Ijazat – Permission, Dar -Doorstep, Mohabbat – Love.

Dohaz lyrics meaning

Ever since she met him, Riya accepts that she feels special, like gold. Previously, there were times when she had to pretend to smile. 

Now Riya doesn’t smile merely with her lips, her entire body now exudes happiness and joy. 

WORD- Sunehari – Golden, Labon – Lips, Badan – Body.

Dohaz lyrics meaning

Now her days and nights seem gorgeous and it’s all because of him. But Riya realizes that they won’t be together forever. Eventually they’d be in different places of the world. 

But he assures her, if she ever begins to remember him, like the pleasant winds, he’d make his presence felt. Memories about him, would always bring a smile on Riya’s face.

WORD- Salone – Gorgeous, Hawaa- Winds.
