خواہشوں کا چِہرہ کیوں
دُھن٘دْھلا سا لگتا ہے
کیوں اَن گِنَت خواہشوں ہیں
خواہشوں کا پہرا
کیوں ٹھہرا سا لگتا ہے
کیوں یہ غَلَط خواہشوں ہیں
Why does the face of desires
seem like blurred?
Why are there countless desires?
Why does the guard of desires
seem to be stand still?
Why are these desires wrong?
00 :34
ہر موڑ پر
پِھر سے مڑ جاتی ہیں
کھلتے ہوئے پَل میں مُرْجھاتی ہیں
ہیں بے شَرْم
پِھر بھی شرماتی
ہیں خواہشوں
At every twist (of the road)
they turn around
In a blossoming moment, they wither
They are shameless
but still shy
They are desires
00 :53
زِندگی کو دِھیرے دِھیرے
ڈستی ہیں خواہشوں
آنسو کو پیتے پیتے
ہنستی ہیں خواہشوں
Desires slowly/gradually,
bite/sting life
drink/supress tears
01 :12
الجھی ہوئی کَشْمکَش میں
عَمْر کٹ جاتی ہے
In tangled confusion
the lifetime is passed
01 :37
آنکھیں مِچ جائے
جو اُجالوں میں
کِس کام کی ایسی رَوشنی
او او بَھٹْکا کے نہ
لائے جو کِناروں پہ
کِس کام کی ایسی کشتی
Eyes which are shut
in brightness
What's the use of such a light?
Oh, oh! What led you astray
and doesn't bring you ashore
What's the use of such a boat?
01 :55
آندھی ہر دِھیرے سے لاتی ہے
وعدہ کر دھوکا دے جاتی ہے
مُنہ پھیر ہنس کے
چِڑھاتی ہے خواہشوں
They gradually bring storms
Having made promises, they keep on breaking them
After turning their faces and laughing,
desires tease.

زِندگی کو دِھیرے دِھیرے
ڈستی ہیں خواہشوں
آنسوؤں کو پیتے پیتے
ہنستی ہے خواہشوں
Desires slowly/gradually,
bite/sting life
drink/supress tears

الجھی ہوئی کَشْمکَش
میں عَمْر کٹ جاتی ہے۔
In tangled confusion
the lifetime is passed
