bachpan kitnā pyārā thā jab dil ko yaqīñ aa jaatā thā

marte haiñ to ban jaate haiñ āsmān ke taare log

bachpan kitna pyara tha jab dil ko yaqin aa jata tha

marte hain to ban jate hain aasman ke tare log

phailte hue shahro apnī vahshateñ roko

mere ghar ke āñgan par āsmān rahne do

phailte hue shahro apni wahshaten roko

mere ghar ke aangan par aasman rahne do

aane vaale kal ḳhātir har har pal qurbān kiyā

haal ko dafnā dete haiñ ham jiine tayyārī meñ

aane wale kal ki KHatir har har pal qurban kiya

haal ko dafna dete hain hum jine ki tayyari mein

ab baar jo ghar jaanā to saare album le aanā

vaqt dīmak lag jaatī hai yādoñ almārī meñ

ab ki bar jo ghar jaana to sare album le aana

waqt ki dimak lag jati hai yaadon ki almari mein

haqīqateñ to mire roz o shab sāthī haiñ

maiñ roz o shab haqīqat badalnā chāhtī huuñ

haqiqaten to mere roz o shab ki sathi hain

main roz o shab ki haqiqat badalna chahti hun
