a rough translation of the above song:
where are u, o lover, who pleads me to love u...
where are u, o lover, who pleads me to love u and only u...
is this your piercing gaze??
or is this love's game??
whatever it is, how and what do i search u as?
u stepped the first time,
inside the city of my heart, and
strolled in my mind's street
now who are u???
for our first meet,
at the time u have told,
where do i come?
you were the one who roamed behind me, for my one glance
now i do want to see u, so please come soon....
even after listening to your call,
how do i keep quiet,
in futility do i search...who are u?
i peek stealthily,
at every passing guy
but in vain do i search...who are u?
why didnt u come even when i was waiting for u...
is there any future for me without u?
this is a very rough translation...the song is way more poetic than i have described :-))
