To forget I write

To forget I write,
The more I write the more images become sharp,
The more images become sharp the more they cut through my heart,
The more my heart bleeds the more alive I be,
The more alive I feel the more I want thee,
The more I want thee the more it pains to not have you near me,
The more it pains the more I want to forget,
To forget I write Read more!

and maybe one day

and maybe one day

you will  just talk
and i will just watch


you will tell me of life
and i will live what you describe



you will use your words to help me rest to massage me
and i will roll in them to remove my burden from me


you will speak with happiness gesturing from your eyes sitting on the bed
and i will sleep listening to you with your lap under my head


you will touch my cheek and run your fingers through my hair
and i will slip deeper into slumber knowing you are there


you will unflurl your memories and take me to your childhood
and i will lie in them and dream of enjoying all that you could


you will ask if i am to go to be somewhere else to do something
and i will reply that just lying with you when you speak  is the only thing
 

and maybe one day

you will  just talk
and i will just watch Read more!

امراو جان ادا - یہ کیا جگہ ہے دوستوں





یہ کیا جگہ ہے دوستوں

بلا رہا ہے کون


بلا رہا ہے کون مجھ کو چلمنو کے اس طرف

اداس بےقرار ہے


یہ کیا جگہ ہے دوستوں



یہ کون سا دیار ہے



حدَّ نگاہ تک جہاں، غبار ہی غبار ہے

غبار ہی غبار ہے



یہ کیا جگہ ہے دوستوں




Transliteration and Translation of Lyrics of Umrao Jaan - Yeh Kya Jageh Hai Doston in English



Yeh kya jageh hai doston - What place is this my friends?
Yeh kaun sa dyaar hai - Which realm is this?
Yeh kaun sa dyaar hai -
Hadd-e-nigaah tak jahan - For as far as the eyes can see
Hadd-e-nigaah tak jahan -

Ghubaar hi ghubaar hai - there are only dust storms for me
Ghubaar hi ghubaar hai -

Yeh kya jageh hai doston - What place is this my friends?

Yeh kis maqaam par hayaat - Which is this stage?
Yeh kis maqaam par hayaat -
Mujh ko le ke aagayee - where has life brought me?
Mujh ko le ke aagayee -

Naa bas khushee pe hai jahan - Where I have no control over my happiness
Naa bas khushee pe hai jahan -

Naa gham pe ikhtiyaar hai - and nor can I command my despair
Naa gham pe ikhtiyaar hai -

Yeh kya jageh hai doston - What place is this my friends?


Yeh kaun sa dyaar hai - Which realm is this?
Yeh kaun sa dyaar hai -
Tamaam umar ka hisaab - An account of each step
Tamaam umar ka hisaab -

Mangati hai zindagee - is demanded by life
Mangati hai zindagee -

Yeh mera dil kahe to kya - How can my poor heart explain my deeds?
Yeh mera dil kahe to kya -

Ke khud se sharmsaar hai - it is engulfed in its own shame
Ke khud se sharmsaar hai -


Yeh kya jageh hai doston - What place is this my friends?
Yeh kaun sa dyaar hai - Which realm is this?
Yeh kaun sa dyaar hai -
Bulaa rahaa hai kaun - Who is calling out to me?
Bulaa rahaa hai kaun mujh ko -

chilmano ke us taraf - from behind the curtains?
Mere liye bhi kya koi - Is there one assigned to me?
Mere liye bhi kya koi -

Udaas bey qaraar hai - to miss me, to impatiently await me?
Udaas bey qaraar hai -


Yeh kya jageh hai doston - What place is this my friends?
Yeh kaun sa dyaar hai - Which realm is this?

Hadd-e-nigaah tak jahan - For as far as the eyes can see

Ghubaar hi ghubaar hai - there are only dust storms for me
Ghubaar hi ghubaar hai -
Yeh kya jageh hai doston - What place is this my friends?
