ujāle apnī yādoñ ke hamāre saath rahne do

na jaane kis galī meñ zindagī shaam ho jaa.e

ujale apni yaadon ke hamare sath rahne do

na jaane kis gali mein zindagi ki sham ho jae

zindagī ne mujhe qabr se kam hai zamīñ

paañv phailā.ūñ to dīvār meñ sar lagtā hai

zindagi tu ne mujhe qabr se kam di hai zamin

panw phailaun to diwar mein sar lagta hai

dushmanī jam kar karo lekin ye gunjā.ish rahe

jab kabhī ham dost ho jaa.eñ to sharminda na hoñ

bear enmity with all your might, but this we should decide

if ever we be friends again, we are not mortified

dushmani jam kar karo lekin ye gunjaish rahe

jab kabhi hum dost ho jaen to sharminda na hon

bear enmity with all your might, but this we should decide

if ever we be friends again, we are not mortified

kuchh to majbūriyāñ rahī hoñgī

yuuñ koī bevafā nahīñ hotā

she would have had compulsions surely

faithless without cause no one can be

kuchh to majburiyan rahi hongi

yun koi bewafa nahin hota

she would have had compulsions surely

faithless without cause no one can be

na bhar ke dekhā na kuchh baat

baḌī aarzū thī mulāqāt

na ji bhar ke dekha na kuchh baat ki

baDi aarzu thi mulaqat ki

yahāñ libās qīmat hai aadmī nahīñ

mujhe gilās baḌe de sharāb kam kar de

yahan libas ki qimat hai aadmi ki nahin

mujhe gilas baDe de sharab kam kar de

har dhaḌakte patthar ko log dil samajhte haiñ

umreñ biit jaatī haiñ dil ko dil banāne meñ

har dhaDakte patthar ko log dil samajhte hain

umren bit jati hain dil ko dil banane mein

baḌe logoñ se milne meñ hamesha fāsla rakhnā

jahāñ dariyā samundar se milā dariyā nahīñ rahtā

baDe logon se milne mein hamesha fasla rakhna

jahan dariya samundar se mila dariya nahin rahta

musāfir haiñ ham bhī musāfir ho tum bhī

kisī moḌ par phir mulāqāt hogī

musafir hain hum bhi musafir ho tum bhi

kisi moD par phir mulaqat hogi

mohabbatoñ meñ dikhāve dostī na milā

agar gale nahīñ miltā to haath bhī na milā

mohabbaton mein dikhawe ki dosti na mila

agar gale nahin milta to hath bhi na mila

ham to kuchh der hañs bhī lete haiñ

dil hamesha udaas rahtā hai

hum to kuchh der hans bhi lete hain

dil hamesha udas rahta hai

tum mujhe chhoḌ ke jāoge to mar jā.ūñgā

yuuñ karo jaane se pahle mujhe pāgal kar do

tum mujhe chhoD ke jaoge to mar jaunga

yun karo jaane se pahle mujhe pagal kar do

koī haath bhī na milā.egā jo gale miloge tapāk se

ye na.e mizāj shahr hai zarā fāsle se milā karo

koi hath bhi na milaega jo gale miloge tapak se

ye nae mizaj ka shahr hai zara fasle se mila karo

ḳhudā itnī baḌī kā.enāt meñ maiñ ne

bas ek shaḳhs ko māñgā mujhe vahī na milā

KHuda ki itni baDi kaenat mein main ne

bas ek shaKHs ko manga mujhe wahi na mila

gharoñ pe naam the nāmoñ ke saath ohde the

bahut talāsh kiyā koī aadmī na milā

gharon pe nam the namon ke sath ohde the

bahut talash kiya koi aadmi na mila

uḌne do parindoñ ko abhī shoḳh havā meñ

phir lauT ke bachpan ke zamāne nahīñ aate

uDne do parindon ko abhi shoKH hawa mein

phir lauT ke bachpan ke zamane nahin aate

sar jhukāoge to patthar devtā ho jā.egā

itnā mat chāho use vo bevafā ho jā.egā

sar jhukaoge to patthar dewta ho jaega

itna mat chaho use wo bewafa ho jaega

na tum hosh meñ ho na ham hosh meñ haiñ

chalo mai-kade meñ vahīñ baat hogī

neither are you in your senses nor am I in mine

let us now go to the tavern and talk while we have wine

na tum hosh mein ho na hum hosh mein hain

chalo mai-kade mein wahin baat hogi

neither are you in your senses nor am I in mine

let us now go to the tavern and talk while we have wine

hasīñ to aur haiñ lekin koī kahāñ tujh

jo dil jalā.e bahut phir bhī dilrubā lage

hasin to aur hain lekin koi kahan tujh sa

jo dil jalae bahut phir bhi dilruba hi lage

guftugū un se roz hotī hai

muddatoñ sāmnā nahīñ hotā

daily I converse with her in my fantasy

very seldom is she ever face to face with me

guftugu un se roz hoti hai

muddaton samna nahin hota

daily I converse with her in my fantasy

very seldom is she ever face to face with me

agar talāsh karūñ koī mil jā.egā

magar tumhārī tarah kaun mujh ko chāhegā

agar talash karun koi mil hi jaega

magar tumhaari tarah kaun mujh ko chahega

abhī raah meñ ka.ī moḌ haiñ koī aa.egā koī jā.egā

tumheñ jis ne dil se bhulā diyā use bhūlne duā karo

abhi rah mein kai moD hain koi aaega koi jaega

tumhein jis ne dil se bhula diya use bhulne ki dua karo

tum mohabbat ko khel kahte ho

ham ne barbād zindagī kar

tum mohabbat ko khel kahte ho

hum ne barbaad zindagi kar li

isī shahr meñ ka.ī saal se mire kuchh qarībī aziiz haiñ

unheñ merī koī ḳhabar nahīñ mujhe un koī pata nahīñ

isi shahr mein kai sal se mere kuchh qaribi aziz hain

unhen meri koi KHabar nahin mujhe un ka koi pata nahin

bhalā ham mile bhī to kyā mile vahī dūriyāñ vahī fāsle
