Kaisa Yeh Raaz Hai



rātōṁ kī tanhāī mēṁ In the loneliness of the nights
subhōṁ kī parchāī mēṁ In the shadows of the mornings
[eh he he …]


cēhrā hai kyā yah mērī ām̐khōṁ mēṁ What is this face inside my eyes?
xuśbū hai kyā yah mērī sām̐sōṁ mēṁ What is this fragrance in my breaths?
kaisā yah rāz hai, What kind of secret is this,
jō ki khultā nahīṁ that is not being revealed
kyūm̐ mērē zahan mēṁ, Why, inside my mind,
tū hai ai ajnbī / ajnbī are you, hey, stranger?
[e he he he he he he] [x2]
[wo-ho ho ho ho ho ho]
[e he ii eh hii he hii …]
[movie dialog]


hōtā hai jō savālōṁ mēṁ, The one who is present in questions
miltā nahīṁ javābōṁ mēṁ is not found in answers
rahtā hai jō xayālōṁ mēṁ The one who lives in thoughts
ab tak hai vah hijābōṁ mēṁ is still under a veil


hai dil kā yah kaisā mausam What season of the heart is this?
na dhūp hai na hai śabnam It is neither sunshine nor dew
ō ō ō Ho, ho, ho


kaisā yah rāz hai, What kind of secret is this,
jō ki khultā nahīṁ that is not being revealed?
kyūm̐ mērē zahan mēṁ, Why, inside my mind,
tū hai ai ajnbī / ajnbī are you, hey, stranger?
[e he he he he he he] [x2]
[wo-ho ho ho ho ho ho]
[e he ii eh hii he hii …]
[movie dialog]


jānē hai kyā sitārōṁ mēṁ Is it known what's in the stars?
gardiś sī hai iśārōṁ mēṁ The signs are like distressing
patjhaṛ sī hai bahārōṁ mēṁ Like autumn within spring
tūfān sā hai kinārōṁ mēṁ Like storm within (the harbor of) a shore


dastak sī hai kyā yah har-dam What is this like knocking at every moment?
āhaṭ sī hai kyā yē har-dam These like footfalls at every moment?
ō ō ō … Ho, ho ho …


kaisā yah rāz hai, What kind of secret is this,
jō ki khultā nahīṁ that is not being revealed?
kyūm̐ mērē zahan mēṁ, Why, inside my mind,
tū hai ai ajnbī / ajnbī are you, hey, stranger?
[e he he he he he he] [x2]
[wo-ho ho ho ho ho ho]
[e he ii eh hii he hii …]
[e he he he he he he] / ajnbī … [e he he he he he he] / stranger …
[wo-ho ho ho ho ho ho …]
