Beloved
00 :34
کب تک چُپ بیٹھیں اب تو کُچھ ہے بولنا
کُچھ تُم بولو کُچھ ہم بولیں او ڈھولنا
[both lines x3]
مر جانا تھا یہ بھید نہیں تھا کھولنا
او ڈھولنا  او ڈھولنا 
کب تک چُپ بیٹھیں اب تو کُچھ ہے بولنا
کُچھ تُم بولو کُچھ ہم بولیں او ڈھولنا
Sitting silent since so long, now something must be said
You say something, I say something, beloved
[both lines x3]
I rather die than reveal this secret
Ah, the swinging … oh, beloved …
Sitting silent since so long, now I must say something
You say something, I say something, beloved
02 :08
دو چار قدم پہ تُم تھے،
دو چار قدم پہ ہم تھے
[both lines x2]
دو چار قدم یہ لیکن،
سَو مِیلوں سے کیا کم تھے
پِھر اُس پہ قدم قدم پہ دِل کا ڈولنا
ہائے ڈولنا  او ڈھولنا 
کب تک چُپ بیٹھیں اب تو کُچھ ہے بولنا
کُچھ تُم بولو کُچھ ہم بولیں او ڈھولنا
[both lines x2]
I was a couple of steps away from you
You were a couple of steps away from me
[both lines x2]
But (compared to) these few steps,
how short a hundred miles are!
And on top of that stepping, this constant swinging of the heart
Ah, the swinging … oh, beloved …
Sitting silent since so long, now something must be said
You say something, I say something, beloved
[both lines x2]
03 :37
لو جِیت گئے تُم ہم سے،
ہم ہار گئے اِس دِل سے
[both lines x2]
آیا ہے آج لبوں پہ یہ پیار بڑی مشکل سے
اِس پیار میں ہمکو پاگل نہ کر چھوڑنا
نہ چھوڑنا، او ڈھولنا
کب تک چُپ بیٹھیں اب تو کُچھ ہے بولنا
کُچھ تُم بولو کُچھ ہم بولیں او ڈھولنا
[both lines x2]
مر جانا تھا یہ بھید نہیں تھا کھولنا
او ڈھولنا  او ڈھولنا 
کب تک چُپ بیٹھیں اب تو کُچھ ہے بولنا
کُچھ تُم بولو کُچھ ہم بولیں او ڈھولنا
Look, I prevailed over you
and lost against this heart
[both lines x2]
This love came to my lips today, through great difficulty
Don't leave, crazily in love
Don't leave, oh beloved
Sitting silent since so long, now something must be said
You say something, I say something, beloved
[both lines x2]
I rather die than reveal this secret
Ah, the swinging … oh, beloved …
Sitting silent since so long, now something must be said
You say something, I say something, beloved
