A Piercing Couplet

JO CHAL SAKO TO KOE AISEE CHAAL CHUL JANA
MUJHAY GUMAAN BHEE NA HO AUR TUM BADAL JANA

URDU LYRICS

CHORUS1
Tujhe ye jaan lena thaa
Mujhay ye maan lena thaa
Mohabbat ke samander main
Hamain toofan shena thaa.

VERSE1
Jazeera bhee nahee koe
Samnder kay is daman main,
Hai sahil bhee nazr say gum
Aur mojain bhee hain joban pay.

VERSE2
Is ghayal se kashtee say (kashtee--boat)
Hamian ab koodna hoga
Akhir ishq ke suraj ko
kaheen to doobna hogaa

CHORUS2
Tujhe ye soch lena thaa
Mujhay bhee khoj lena thaa
Hamian rah-e-ulfat pay
Safar ko rok dena thaa


BRIDGE
Howa gum, ufaq say noor
Chaya ghum ka baadl
Syahee ban key phela hai
Teree aankh ka kajl

CHORUS3
Tujhay zubaan hona thaa
Mujhay ilzaam hona thaa
Hamain tishna mohabbat kaa (Tishna--thirsty)
Shakista jam hona thaa.

THERE THERE

We are accidents
waiting waiting to happen

I'M GROWING IMMUNE

Lo!
I'm blowing out my light
I'm embracing gloom
I've grown sting of lies
To praise the doom
I'm growing immune
I'm growing immune

You know! no sage can stay awake
in this bed of fake reasons
So, I've got to sleep
I must dive deep
in the sea of oblivion

Lo!I am riding tide
To get consumed
I just can't strive
like shifting sand dunes
I'm growing immune
I'm growing immune
