yeh saayein banayein, mitayein
main kahun aur tu aa jaye , behlaye
har doori sharmayin
tu saath hai, oh din raat hai
saaya saaya Mahi ve Mahi ve
meri har baat mein saath tu hai
Mahi ve Mahi ve
mere saare halat tu
kahein sathaye, manaye, sathaye
tu rulaye, hasayein bhi tu hi
hum saaye, har doori sharmayein...
Meri sab raazkal aaj tu hai
Mahi ve Mahi ve
meri har udaan ek tu
yeh jeena bhi, na jeena bhi
hai dono ka tumse hi vaasta
oh main hi toh hoon tera pata
hain doosra na koi raasta
aaye mujh tak jo tumko ho dhoondtha
meri khamoshi mein tu bolta
yeh jeena bhi, na jeens bhi
jo bhi hua hain woh tumse hua
This song is holding the relationship between self and her imagination of other person (Mahi ve).
The shadow is the metaphor referring to the imagined person existing all the time like a shadow. Through this song and imagination, a dead person comes to life.
Interpretation of the song
The sun (light) gives rise to shadow. I call you and you come alive. You soothe (please me through soft talk or humour) me. You are so close that there is no distance between us. You are with me in day and night. The shadow proves that you exist even though you are imaginary.
In my every talk, you are there with me. In my every condition, you are there with me. All my secrets are with you. My ventures and explorations are with you.
You annoy me. then also please me. You make me cry. then also make me happy.
Either I have desire to live or not, it is only related with you. If I live, I live with you. If I die, I die away from you. The world is between us. I am your destination and also only way to reach one. I am the end and means to an end. This is how mind develops.
Whomever searches you will find me. I listen to you in my silences.
Mahi ve is hallucination. hallucination preserves the lost object. Is she in denial of loss?
