Apna Time Aayega Lyrics Explained English Translation

कौन बोला मुझसे न हो पायेगा
Kaun bola mujhse naa ho payega?

Who said that I am not capable enough to do it?

(That it's just not possible that I will be able to do it? The vibe is motivational, nearly taunting and lifting, 'Giving up, already, eh?'

कौन बोला, कौन बोला
Kaun bola, Kaun bola?

Who said so? Who said?

English Meaning

It's a typical Indian swag way of asking, who the hell said this? Again, it has a reference of someone in power asking, who is such a coward, who wouldn't dare? who'd give up before its begun? Who'd say it just can't be done by me? Tumse na ho paega, which means it just cannot be done by you has deep cultural context in India, that we, Indians only understand. There was a movie that had this dialogue and since then, it's a cult reference. It is the ultimate blow to the male ego. Saying: "O, dear, dear! You just freaking can't, alright?!" It is the ultimate roast, a popular occurrence in T-shirt quotes, mic drop moments in fights and boasts.

Here, instead of saying "Tumse", (by you) it says, "Mujhse", (by me). He is asking which man had the guts to say, I won't be able to do it, eh?  It can also be used as a motivating thing to all, meaning who is so afraid to say I just won't be able to?

Apna Time Aaega Lyrics

अपना time आएगा
Apna time ayega

Our time will come.

उठ जा अपनी राख से तू
Uth ja apni raakh se

Rise from your own ashes.

English Meaning Interpretation

Uth ja means Get up. It is symbolic of a phoenix, a bird that dies and burns and is born again from its own ashes. A powerful metaphorical connotation to begin again, dust yourself and just get up. Make the failure your stepping stone. You've been burnt alive. Now, get up from your ashes. Rise.

Apna Time Aaega Lyrics

उड़ जा अब तलाश में
Tu udd ja ab talaash mein

Fly in quest

परवाज़ देख परवाने की
Parwaaz dekh parwane ki

Look at the flight of the bird

English Meaning Interpretation

Parwaaz means flight. Parwana is very common usage in Bollywood and Urdu poetry etc., as a little firefly or any insect that hovers around the candle flame. 

आसमान भी सर उठाएगा
Aasman bhi sar uthayega

The sky will lift its head (to see).

आएगा अपना time आएगा
Aayega apna time aayega

It will come! Our time will come!

Lyrics Explained | English Meaning

The sky will lift its head (to see). Here, it is not only generally referring to a bird flying, but more so, to the tiniest form of a bird/ insect flying that its flight is so high that the sky is looking up, the sky is lifting its head to have a look. Oh, damn, what a flight, what a height this little being took! How high it is that the sky has to lift its head and see! It bows down. We are saying it as a bow, because you salute, or lift your head in respect to the national flag, to the national anthem, or to anyone you think deserves respect. Similarly looking at the mighty flight the little bird or fly took, the sky will lift its head, in salute, as a mark of respect and acknowledgment of its journey

Apna Time Aaega Lyrics

मेरे जैसा शाणा लाला
Mere jaisa shaana lala

a smart/cunning thug guy like me

तुझे न मिल पायेगा
Tujhe na mil payega

you won't be able to find

English Meaning

Shaana  is a very colloquial Mumbaiya way of speaking, loosely referring to intelligent, street smart, someone you can't fool. Someone who can one-up you. Really, really smart. In a cool way, street smart, thug smart.

Apna Time Aaega Lyrics

ये शब्दों का ज्वाला
Yeh shabdon ka jwala

This fireball of words

मेरी बेड़ियाँ पिघलायेगा
Meri bediyan pighlayega

will melt my chains, (which stop me from succeeding)

English Meaning Explanation

Jwala is also explosion, a typical fire explosion, brimming at its maximum potential. Such is the power of my words.My words will free me from all limitations, that are like literal heavy metal chains as to a prisoner, locked up for severe crime. Imagine medieval prisoner with thick iron anklets tied to chains, locking you up cruelly. Even that will melt with the fire in my words.

Apna Time Aaega Lyrics

जितना तूने बोया है
Jitna toone boya hai tu

As much as you've sown

तू उतना ही तो खायेगा
Utna hi to khaayega

that much you'd reap.

English Meaning Explanation

As you sow, so you reap. You will get only as much to eat, as much as you've planted in the first place. The vibe is a very subtle mic drop.
(This whole rap speaks in second person 'tu', which is the most loose, non-respect, often speaking from a higher power, or in a very personal intimate manner. The character is from the gully, the streets, that's how they speak, the exact dialect). But here, it is also a direct, deep line thrown in your face. How greedy are you to eat more, eh? Had you even planted (enough seeds, enough effort), the fruits of which you wish to feast on? You get only what you earned!

Apna Time Aaega Lyrics

ऐसा मेरा ख्वाब है
Aisa mera khwaab hai

Such is my dream

जो डर को भी सताएगा
Jo darr ko bhi satayega

that will haunt even fear

जिंदा मेरा ख्वाब
Zinda mera khwaab

Alive is my dream

अब कैसे तू दफानायेगा
Ab kaise tu dafnayega

How will you bury it now?

अब हौसले से जीने दे
Ab hausle se jeene de

Now, let me live with courage Hausla can mean, bravery, courage, dare

अब खौफ नहीं है सीने में
Ab khauf nahi hai seene mein

There's no petrifying fear in my chest (heart)

English Meaning Explanation

Khhaufff is just not fear; but the worst kind of fear. For example, 'dar' is fear, but khaufff immediately brings a more scary picture. You have the darrrr, you're scared of exams. But you are petrified of war. Jung ka khaufff. Here, the swag level is high, saying there was deep fear, but, Oh, no longer is it there in my chest, how can you crumple me now?

Apna Time Aaega Lyrics

हर रास्ते को चीरेंगे
Har raaste ko cheerenge

Will tear every road/path

हम कामयाबी छीनेंगे
Hum kaamyabi chheenenge

We will snatch away success

सब कुछ मिला पसीने से
Sab kuchh mila paseene se

Got everything from sweat

मतलब बना अब जीने में
Matlab bana ab jeene mein

Now, life's worth living!

English Meaning Explanation

Take every two lines together to understand. By efforts, by sweat, I earn this life, and that's what makes this.lifeworth living, that's what makes life meaningful. I got everything by hard work. That's what brings a meaning to live now. (A roast of pointless, meaningless wins and existence of affluent, privileged people who get everything from parents and never earn anything they have by effort.)

Apna Time Aaega Lyrics

क्यूँ...
Kyon

Why?

क्यूंकि अपना time आएगा
Kyon ki apna time aayega

Because, our time will come!

तू नंगा ही तो आया है
Tu nanga hi to aaya hai

You've come naked, after all

क्या घंटा लेकर जाएगा
Kya ghanta lekar jaayega

What the hell would you take with you?

English Meaning Explanation

You came to this world naked when you were born and that's how you will go. So, what's this ego and attitude for?

Apna Time Aayega refrain तू नंगा ही तो आया है, क्या घंटा लेकर ...
Tu nanga hi to aaya hai, Kya ghanta lekar..
अपना time आएगा
Apna time ayega (4)

You've come naked. What the hell will you...(take?)OUR time WILL come!!

Apna Time Aaega Lyrics

किसी का हाथ नहीं था सर पर
Kissi ka hath nahi tha sar par

Nobody's hand was on my head
(Nobody was my Godfather)

यहाँ पर आया खुदकी मेहनत से मैं
Yahaan par aaya khud ki mehnat se main

Came here with my own hard work

जितनी ताकत किस्मत में नहीं
Jitni taakat kismat mein nahi

The strength that fate doesn't have

उतनी रहमत में है
Utni rehmat mein hai

that much is there in blessings

English Meaning Explanation

رحمت raḥmat (for A. رحمة, inf. n. of رحم 'to have mercy'), s.f. Mercy, compassion, pity (=raḥm); divine mercy or favour, pardon, forgiveness; a gift of the divine mercy, a blessing from on high; rain

फिर भी लड़का सहमत नहीं है
Phir bhi ladka sehmat nahin hai

Yet boy doesn't agree

क्यूंकि हैरत नहीं है
Kyon ki hairat nahi hai

Because he doesn't have a sign of surprise

English Meaning Explanation

हैरतحیرتstupor and perturbation of mind, astonishment, wonderआश्चर्यआश्चर्य, विस्मय, तअज्जुब, अचंभा, निस्तब्धता, चकितता, भौचक्कापन ।

ताकत की है, आफत की, हिमाकत की, इबादत की
Taakat ki hai, aafat ki, Himaakat ki, ibaadat ki

of strength, of calamity, of courage, of prayer, worship

English Meaning Explanation
