Shaam - Aisha

“Shaam bhi koi jaise hai nadi, Lehar lehar jaise beh rahi hai

Koi ankahi, koi ansuni

Baat dheemi-dheemi keh rahi hai, Kahin na kahin

Jaagi hui hai koi aarzoo, Kahin na kahin"

Dil Dhadakne Do - Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara

"Kab tak giney, hum dhadkane

Dil jaise dhadke dhadakne do

Kyun hai koi aag dabi, Shola jo bhadke bhadakne do

Humse dil ne kahin jo baatein aao maan le”

Kal Ho Naa Ho - Kal Ho Na Ho

“Har ghadi badal raha hai roop zindagi

Chaav hai kahhi hai dhoop zidnagi

Har pal yahan jee bhar jiyo, 

Jo hai sama, kal ho na ho”

Iktara - Wake Up Sid

"Kyun dikhaye sapne tu sote jaagte

Jo barsein sapne boond boond

Nainon ko moond moond

Jo barsein sapne boond boond

Nainon ko moond moond”

Yun Hi Chala Chal - Swades

"Yun Hi Chala Chal Raahi

Yun Hi Chala Chal Raahi

Kitni Hasin Hai Yeh Duniya

Bhool Saare JHumele,

Dekh Phoolon Ke Mele

Badi Rangeen Hai Yeh Duniya” 

Tumhi Dekho Na - Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna

“Tumhi Dekho Na Yeh Kya Ho Gaya

Tumhara Hoon Main Aur Tum Meri

Main Hairaan Hoon Tumhen Kya Kahu

Ke Din Mein Hui Kaisi Chaandani

Jaagi Jaagi Si Hai Phir Bhi Khwaabon Mein Hai

Khoyi Khoyi Zindagi” 

Do Pal - Veer Zara

“Do pal ruka, Khwaabon ka karwan

Aur phir chal diye, Tum kahan hum kahan

Do pal ki thi, Yeh dilon ki dastaan

Aur phir chal diye, Tum kahan hum kahan”

Main Agar Kahoon - Om Shaanti Om

“Tumko paya hai toh jaise khoya hoon

Kehna chahoon bhi toh tumse kya kahoon

Tumko paya hai toh jaise khoya hoon

Kehna chahoon bhi toh tumse kya kahoon

Kisi zabaan mein bhi, Woh labz hi nahi”
