Lyrics

Main Jaaonga

Written By: Amit Yadav

Usne ye kaha
Kyun hai tu khafa
Teri zindagi mein
Hai vo pal aana bhi bacha
Kyun kho kar yakin
Apni aawaz mein
Tera aasman hai
Tera hi to hai jahan

Mere lekin kuch din hain aise
Aaj hun par kal naa jaane kahan

Main jaaonga
Ek din magar main Jaaonga

Usne ye kaha
Tu hai aazad fir
Teri har khushi mein hai
Teri zid teri manzil
Gum hokar yu kahin
Iss jhoothe gaaon mein
Naa khona tu yakin
Tere sang hai mera ye dil

Mere lekin kuch din hain aise
Aaj hun par kal naa jaane kahan

Main jaaonga
Ek din magar main Jaaonga

Mujhse yu kyun khafa hai tu
Kyun ye doori, kyun juda hai tu
Khokar apne dil ki ye aawazein
Apni manzil se fanaa hai tu

Main chahunga tujhko magar
Main Jaaonga

Roko Na Mujhe

Written By: Anshul Bansal

Kabhi kabhi mein ye sochta hun
Kyun mein khud se khafa hun
Aage bad kar ja pahuchu mein
Us paar mera gaon

Har Koi tokta hai
Badne se rokta hai mujhe
Thehre Thehre kadam hain
Kaise dhoondu mein apni rahein

Na Na Na Na
Roko na; Roko na mujhe
Na Na Na Na
Choone do aasman mujhe
Bhoolna hai
Jo bhi tumne sikhaya mujhe
Na Na Na Na
Roko Na; Roko na mujhe

Khamoshi mein cheekhta hun
Tukda Tukda bata hun
Aene ke dayro mein
Simta sa kyun mein khada hun

Kahin peeche bhool aaya
Apna ek chota saya
Mujhse vo poochta hai
Use kho ke kya meine paya

Na Na Na Na
Roko na; Roko na mujhe
Na Na Na Na
Choone do aasman mujhe
Bhoolna hai
Jo bhi tumne sikhaya mujhe
Na Na Na Na
Roko Na; Roko na mujhe
