Dil Chura Kar Nazar Churai Hai

dil chura kar nazar churai hai

lut gae lut gae duhai hai

she stole my heart and stole away

I have been plundered sad to say

ek din mil ke phir nahin milte

kis qayamat ki ye judai hai

meet for a day, then never meet

how dreadful ’tis to part this way

ai asar kar na intizar-e-dua

mangna sakht be-hayai hai

O consequence, wait not for prayers

it’s shameful if you beg this way

main yahan huun vahan hai dil mera

na-rasai ajab rasai hai

though I am here my heart’s with her

fulfilled yet unfulfilled I stay

is tarah ahl-e-naz naaz karen

bandagi hai ki ye khudai hai

these beauties who put on such airs

are they divine or human, pray?

paani pi pi ke tauba karta huun

parsai si parsai hai

with water, I swear abstinence

such piety do I portray

vaada karne ka ikhtiyar raha

baat karne men kya burai hai

to vow or not you can decide

what harm is in conversing say?

kab nikalta hai ab jigar se tiir

ye bhi kya teri ashnai hai

when does your arrow leave my heart?

what bond for you does this display?

‘dagh’ un se dimagh karte hain

nahin malum kya samai hai

daaG acts with her conceitedly

who knows what holds him in its sway
