Falak Tak



falak tak cal sāth mērē Walk with me up to heaven
falak tak cal sāth cal Walk, up to heaven, walk
[both lines x2]
yah bādal kī cādar This sheet of cloud
yē tārōṁ kē ām̐cal These dopattas of stars
mēṁ chup jāēm̐ ham pal dō pal Let us hide in there for a few moments
falak tak cal sāth mērē Walk with me up to heaven
falak tak cal sāth cal Walk, up to heaven, walk
[both lines x2]


dēkhō kahām̐ ā gaē ham sanam sāth caltē Look where we came walking together, my beloved
jahām̐ din kī bām̐hōṁ mēṁ rātōṁ kē sāyē haiṁ ḍhaltē Where in the arms of the day, the shadows of the night are waning
cal vō caubārē ḍhūm̐ḍhēṁ Go looking for those pavilions,
jin mēṁ cāhat kī būm̐dēṁ where the desires of raindrops
sac kar dēṁ sapnō kō sabhī make all dreams come true
ām̐khōṁ kō mīcē mīcē Closing my eyes,
maiṁ tērē pīchē pīchē Following you,
cal dūm̐ jō kah dē tū abhī I shall go, if you say so


bahārōṁ kī chat hō Let there be a roof of springtime
duāōṁ kē xat hōṁ Let us be scripts of prayers
paṛhtē rahēṁ yah ġazal Let us keep reading this poem


falak tak cal sāth mērē Walk with me up to heaven
falak tak cal sāth cal Walk, up to heaven, walk
[both lines x2]


dēkhā nahīṁ maiṁ nē pahlē kabhī yah nazārā I didn't see this sight anywhere before
badlā huā sā lagē mujhkō ālam yah sārā It appears to me, as if this whole atmosphere became changed
sūraj kō huī harārat A feverishness happened to the sun
rātōṁ kō karē śarārat it does mischief to the nights
baiṭhā hai khiṛkī pē tērī it has sat on your window
is bāt pē cām̐d bhī bigṛā At this, even the moon broke down
qatrā qatrā vah pighlā it melted drop by drop
bhar āyā ām̐khōṁ mēṁ mērī flowed into my eyes and filled them


tō sūraj bujhā dūm̐, I shall extinguish the sun,
tujhē maiṁ sajā dūm̐ I shall make you embellish yourself,
savērā hō tujhsē hī kal let the morning be tomorrow because of you only


falak tak cal sāth mērē Walk with me up to heaven
falak tak cal sāth cal Walk, up to heaven, walk
[both lines x2]
yah bādal kī cādar This sheet of clouds
yē tārōṁ kē ām̐cal These dopattas of stars
mēṁ chup jāēm̐ ham pal dō pal Let us hide in there for a few moments
falak tak cal sāth mērē Walk with me up to heaven
falak tak cal sāth cal Walk, up to heaven, walk
[both lines x3]
