CHAND SIFARISH

subahaan allaah... God be praised...
chaa.nd sifaarish jo karta hamaarii deta voh tumko bataa The moon gives us its blessings and tells us
sharam-o-hayaa ke parde giraake karnii hai hamko khataa it's time to drop this veil of modesty and commit a sin.
zid hai ab to hai khud ko miTaana hona hai tujhme.n fanaa I'm determined to obliterate myself, to be annihilated by your love.
chaa.nd sifaarish jo karta hamaarii deta voh tumko bataa The moon gives us its blessings and tells us
sharam-o-hayaa ke parde giraake karnii hai hamko khataa it's time to drop this veil of modesty and commit a sin.
terii adaa bhii hai jho.nkewaalii chhuuke guzar jaane de You remind me of the wind; touch me as you pass.
terii lachak hai ke jaise Daalii dil me.n utar jaane de You move as sinuously as a reed; plant yourself in my heart.
aajaa baaho.n me.n karke bahaana hona hai tujhme.n fanaa Come, make some excuse to move into my arms; I want to be destroyed by you.
chaa.nd sifaarish jo karta hamaarii deta voh tumko bataa The moon gives us its blessings and tells us
sharam-o-hayaa ke parde giraake karnii hai hamko khataa it's time to drop this veil of modesty and commit a sin.
subahaan allaah... God be praised...
hai jo iraade bataa duu.n tumko sharma hii jaa'ogii tum If I told you my intentions, you'd be flustered and embarrassed.
dhaRkane.n jo sunaa duu.n tumko ghabaraa hii jaa'ogii tum If I let you hear how my heart pounds, you'd grow anxious.
hamko aata nahii.n hai chupaana hona hai tujhme.n fanaa I don't know how to hide it away; let me be destroyed in you.
chaa.nd sifaarish jo karta hamaarii deta voh tumko bataa The moon gives us its blessings and tells us
sharam-o-hayaa ke parde giraake karnii hai hamko khataa it's time to drop this veil of modesty and commit a sin.
zid hai ab to khud ko miTaana hona hai tujhme.n fanaa I'm determined to obliterate myself, to be annihilated by you.

jitne paas hai khushbuu saa.ns ke As close as fragrance is to breath,
jitne paas ho.nTHo.n ke sargam as close as melody is to lips,
jaise saath hai karwat yaad ke as close as the twists and turns of thought,

hai jo siine me.n qaid dariya voh chuuT jaa'ega The river imprisoned in my breast will break free,
hai itna dard ke tera daaman bhiig jaa'ega and the pain is so great, it will wash down to your feet.
jitne paas paas dhaRkan ke hai raaz As close as my secrets are to my heart,
jitne paas buu.ndo.n ke baadal as close as raindrops are to the clouds,
jaise saath saath cha.nda ke hai raat as close as the moon is to the night,
jitne paas nazaro.n ke kaajal as close as kohl is to the eyes,
jitne paas paas saagar ke lahar as close as the waves are to the sea,
utne paas tuu rahana hamsafar stay that close to me, my life's companion.
tuu jo paas ho phir kya yeh jahaa.n When you're with me, what use have I for the world?
tere pyaar me.n ho jaa'uu.n fanaa May your love annihilate me.
mere haath me.n tera haath ho When my hand is in yours,
saarii jannate.n mere saath ho all of paradise is mine.
adhuurii saa.ns thii My breath was incomplete;
dhaRkan adhuurii thii my heartbeat was incomplete;
adhuure ham I was incomplete.
magar ab chaa.nd puura hai falak pe But now the moon is full in the sky,
aur ab puure hai.n ham and we are made whole.
