Song: The music of this song was composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and the lyrics were penned by Javed Akhtar.
This gist of the song is, “The birds of my dreams fly in the open sky. They are flying in the world of my heart. Who knows, where they will go. The moments are open, these eyes speak. I feel I just woke up. Worries have been left behind. I have moved on without them. Life is flowing in the air. Wonder, what life is speaking to us. Let things happen on their own.”
