Falak Tak

falak tak
Up to Heaven

falak tak cal sāth mērē
falak tak cal sāth cal
[both lines x2]
yah bādal kī cādar
yē tārōṁ kē ām̐cal
mēṁ chup jāēm̐ ham pal dō pal
falak tak cal sāth mērē
falak tak cal sāth cal
[both lines x2]

Walk with me up to heaven
Walk, up to heaven, walk
[both lines x2]
This sheet of cloud
These dopattas of stars
Let us hide in there for a few moments
Walk with me up to heaven
Walk, up to heaven, walk
[both lines x2]


dēkhō kahām̐ ā gaē ham sanam sāth caltē
jahām̐ din kī bām̐hōṁ mēṁ rātōṁ kē sāyē haiṁ ḍhaltē
cal vō caubārē ḍhūm̐ḍhēṁ
jin mēṁ cāhat kī būm̐dēṁ
sac kar dēṁ sapnō kō sabhī
ām̐khōṁ kō mīcē mīcē
maiṁ tērē pīchē pīchē
cal dūm̐ jō kah dē tū abhī

Look where we came walking together, my beloved
Where in the arms of the day, the shadows of the night are waning
Go looking for those pavilions,
where the desires of raindrops
make all dreams come true
Closing my eyes,
Following you,
I shall go, if you say so


bahārōṁ kī chat hō
duāōṁ kē xat hōṁ
paṛhtē rahēṁ yah ġazal

Let there be a roof of springtime
Let us be scripts of prayers
Let us keep reading this poem


falak tak cal sāth mērē
falak tak cal sāth cal
[both lines x2]

Walk with me up to heaven
Walk, up to heaven, walk
[both lines x2]


dēkhā nahīṁ maiṁ nē pahlē kabhī yah nazārā
badlā huā sā lagē mujhkō ālam yah sārā
sūraj kō huī harārat
rātōṁ kō karē śarārat
baiṭhā hai khiṛkī pē tērī
is bāt pē cām̐d bhī bigṛā
qatrā qatrā vah pighlā
bhar āyā ām̐khōṁ mēṁ mērī

I didn't see this sight anywhere before
It appears to me, as if this whole atmosphere became changed
A feverishness happened to the sun
it does mischief to the nights
it has sat on your window
At this, even the moon broke down
it melted drop by drop
flowed into my eyes and filled them


tō sūraj bujhā dūm̐,
tujhē maiṁ sajā dūm̐
savērā hō tujhsē hī kal

I shall extinguish the sun,
I shall make you embellish yourself,
let the morning be tomorrow because of you only


falak tak cal sāth mērē
falak tak cal sāth cal
[both lines x2]
yah bādal kī cādar
yē tārōṁ kē ām̐cal
mēṁ chup jāēm̐ ham pal dō pal
falak tak cal sāth mērē
falak tak cal sāth cal
[both lines x3]

Walk with me up to heaven
Walk, up to heaven, walk
[both lines x2]
This sheet of clouds
These dopattas of stars
Let us hide in there for a few moments
Walk with me up to heaven
Walk, up to heaven, walk
[both lines x3]
