Tere Naam (Your Name)

(Verse One)

I know that you're older, but for me that didn't matter,
Your age wasn't really a concern,
All I ever wanted was to truly get to know you,
And see where our destiny turns,
But I spoke to soon, shared some information,
That stopped the intentions we once had,
You said we'll be friends, that ripped my heart,
I wish we could find a way back,
And I see you all the time, happy and smiling,
Honestly, it warms my heart,
As I truly liked you, I truly wanted you,
But it kills me that we're apart,
I don't know your feelings or what's in your head,
It's clearly not me, as those feelings are dead,
But at least we still talk, even if it's a word or two,
I really wish that we were something, I would've given my heart to you...

(Chorus)

Tera saath mila toh (Being with you)
Chain mila hai bechainiyon ko (Resulted in getting peace from restlessness)
Chahat saari tujhpe luta du (I want to shower all my love on you)
Dil kar diya tere naam (I've given my heart in your name)
Tere naam, tere naam (Your name, your name)

(Verse Two)

It's tough to keep my eyes off you, especially when you look back,
Our eyes lock on for a split second, my breath just feels trapped,
I really want to talk to you, but I know I'll speak my heart,
And you'll refuse to believe my word and that would hit me hard,
If only you knew what you mean to me, you'd be shocked that I've fallen so deep,
I know we've only spoke a few times, but I feel that you're meant for me,
I can't force you to feel the same, I'll just have to wait and see,
If it's written by God for us to be one, I'll stop wearing my heart on my sleeve,
But girl, right now I'm wearing it, my feelings are out in the open,
The seconds and minutes where we don't talk, it leaves my heart so swollen,
And the day I know it's broken, I will give up wishing and hoping, 
I'll lose all trust with my own heart, and stop my crying and moping,
But at least we still talk, even if it's a word or two,
I really wish that we were something, I would've given my heart to you...

(Chorus)

Tera saath mila toh (Being with you)
Chain mila hai bechainiyon ko (Resulted in getting peace from restlessness)
Chahat saari tujhpe luta du (I want to shower all my love on you)
Dil kar diya tere naam (I've given my heart in your name)
Tere naam, tere naam (Your name, your name)

(Verse Three)

I try to find the courage to approach you, but sometimes my ego takes control,
Like the other day you were in the gym, and you said a simple hello,
But in return, I replied with pride, but after I felt so wrong,
Why didn't I speak to you when I had the chance, when I've wanted to speak for so long?
Every single day, my heart cracks a little more, but I know your touch will restore it all,
I know I'm not in your league, you can do so much better, but there was nothing I could do to stop my fall,
I'm in love with you, at least I think that's what it is, 
You're the girl, I want to share my life with, 
No one matters but you my love, I want to turn you and me, into us, 
I don't have luxury or wealth to give, but I can give you a life of love and bliss,
This is all true, it really is, I want to be yours, that's my only wish,
But at least we still talk, even if it's a word or two,
I really wish that we were something, I would've given my heart to you....
