Mann Chandre Nu: Lyrics and Translation

A song which can give you goosebumps every time you hear it is very difficult to compose and one such great composition of  Mr. A.R. Rahman is "Mann Chandre nu". Although, the verses of the song are short, but the composition of the Rahman Sir is so overwhelming that you get mesmerized in the melody.

Album:  Connections
Singers: Sukhwinder Singh, Shraddha Pandit, Vijay Prakash

Mann (Heart) Chandre (Crazy). Means Crazy heart. A heart which is restless. This song is about the emotions of a lover who is telling that he is not able to find any peace nor satisfaction after falling in love.

The song is in Punjabi Language, but believe me you won't care even if you don't understand a word because this song is all about Music, Music and Music. Here goes its Lyrics:

Mann chandre nu raas na aave, Na aave darwaas!
Crazy heart neither gets satisfaction nor can afford!

Jigar da sauda kyon kar baitha, mukkadi jandi aas!
Why I fell in love, now even the hopes are dying!

Je lutt janda te lutt janda dil, hauke kha k chhup janda!
Once heart is gone, its gone! It hides after crying inside!

Beparwah da ki kehna, Na aave darwaas!
What to say about careless people, there is no relief!

Jigar da sauda kyon kar baitha, mukkadi jandi aas!

Dard sataunda bedardan nu, bedardan da ki janda!
Pain hurts the heartless, they won't feel the pain!

Dard sataunda bedardan nu, bedardan da ki janda!
Bedardan da ki janda!

Mann chandre (repeat)….
Mann chandre(repeat)….

The above line keeps repeating and just start feeling the pain of the person going through it. I think the Album name suits the song perfectly: Connections. This song does depicts the connection of two souls and the pain they go through when they get separated. Don't have anything more to write about such wonderful composition. Just Listen to it. You'll find peace somewhere in it.

God Bless Rahman Sir for this Wonderful peace and Sukhwinder Singh for giving such depth to the song via his singing.
