Watch the whole video and read up on the inspiration, the lyrics and the people behind this song!

This song is primarily about an overpowering sense of longing. Based on a poem written by Nitin’s mother, this song is about longing for a person, a life, a home land…

 

It is the chahat one has for various things in life one hasn’t received yet. This composition is very metaphoric and elegant.

Here's the lyrics of this song:

 

 

No way you could hold back time
The world will turn the sun will shine
Its all for you
Give up searching, let it go
The moon will rise the rivers flow
Its all for you


No way you could hold back time
The world will turn the sun will shine
Its all for you
Give up searching, let it go
The moon will rise the rivers flow
Its all for you


Tujhe najron se piya
Teri khushboo main jiya


Sab tere hai, sab tere hai
Teri palkon ko chhua
Aur dhadkan ko suna
Sab tere hai, sab tere hai


No way you could hold back time
The world will turn the sun will shine
Its all for you
Give up searching, let it go
The moon will rise the rivers flow
Its all for you

 

Tujhe najron se piya
Teri khushboo main jiya


Sab tere hai, sab tere hai
Teri palkon ko chhua
Aur dhadkan ko suna
Sab tere hai, sab tere hai


Pyas badhti gayi
Hosh ghatthi gayi
Chah badti gayi
Mad kafi na hua
No way you could hold back time
The world will turn the sun will shine
Its all for you
Give up searching, let it go
The moon will rise the rivers flow
Its all for you

 

No way you could hold back time
The world will turn the sun will shine
Its all for you
Give up searching, let it go
The moon will rise the rivers flow
Its all for you

 

Tujhe najron se piya
Teri khushboo main jiya


Sab tere hai, sab tere hai.
