Lyrics: Ajnabi Shehar Hai – Jaan-e-Mann

Great lyrics, good music. Sonu Nigam does it justice.


ajnabi shahar hai
ajnabi shaam hai
zindagi ajnabi kya tera naam hai
ajeeb hai ye zindagi ye zindagi ajeeb hai
ye milti hai bicharti hai bicharke phir se milti hai
Ajnabi shehar hai
ajnabi shaam hai

aap ke bagair bhi hume
meethi lage udasiya
kya ye aap ka aap ka kamaal hai
shayad aapko khabar nahi
hil rahi hai paaon ki zameen
kya ye aap ka aap ka khayal hai
ajnabi shehar mein zindagi milgayi
ajeeb hai ye zindagi ye zindagi ajeeb hai
mein samjha tha kareeb hai ye auron ka naseeb hai
ajnabi shaher hai
ajnabi shaam hai

baat hai ye ek raat ki
aap badalo pe letey the
woh yaad hai aapne bulaya tha
sardi lag rahi thi aapko
patli chandi lapetey the
aur shawl mein khwaab ke sulaya tha
ajnabi thi sahi saans mein silgayi
ajeeb hai ye zindagi ye zindagi ajeeb hai
mere nahi ye zindagi rakeeb ka naseeb hai

    This song is ok but there is one in jaan-e-mann in which i thought i heard something like “Mom maani nahi” and “Dad naaraaz tha” and on top of that a “Mera future hai teri kasam” too!!! How bad can you get even after having such lavish production budgets.

    just gr8 sonu nigam at its best .. just amazin song..

    Well Sreejith, if you watch the movie, then the words fit. Because it was all sort of a musical, and Salman was singing his goodbye and why he was leaving to Preity in a song. So they kinda had to use those words; it wasn’t by accident.

    Beautiful number with Sonu Nigam;s mellifluous voice and unconventional lyrics!

  15. 17 Juhi October 23, 2007 at 6:20 pm

    Aur sach mein yeh zindagi badi ajeeb hai… dil todke humara hume tooti kaanch ko samethne chodh jaati hai..

    But I love these songs. Songs like Ajanbi Shehar, Sau Dard, Mausam, Beete Lamhe, Alvida,Tu Na Ja, To Phir Aao, etc etc.

  16. 18 jyoti nautiyal November 13, 2007 at 1:08 pm

    Its an awesome song. Soothing and melliflous. Unconventional lyrics- neither sad nor happy; captures a totally different mood. Add to that Sonu Nigam in his element. Simply WOW

    I was spellbound……Sonu is capable of such variations (he is the god of indian playback music), Gulzar’s lyrics..great as always, bt when u think tht this one comes from anu malik..can’t believe it. One of his best so far
