دُور سے آتی ہیں پریاں
سُناتی ہیں اِک کہانی مُجھے بار بار
تُم یہاں پہ مگر
وُہ، وہاں پہ کرے تیرا اِنتظار
اب مانو نہیں ہار
Fairies come from afar
and narrate to me a story again and again
You are over here
but (he) is over there waiting for you
provided you don't become dispirited

سوچو نہ، چل پڑو
جاؤ، نہ نہ ڈرو
جانتے ہو تُم اس کے دِل کا راز
شاید گھبراۓ گی، وُہ نہ کہہ پائے گی
تُم نہ ڈرنا نہ پیچھے ہٹنا
کہہ دینا دِل کی بات
Don't think, just go
Go, no, don't fear
You know (her) heart's secret
Perhaps she will be confused, won't manage to speak (out)
Don't you fear, don't you fall back
say the word of your heart!

Muntazir (Hindi: मुंतज़िर, Urdu: مُنتظِر): "Expectant", "Waiting" is a song featured in season 10 of the Pakistani TV program "Coke Studio", aired in 2017.

The song tells the story of two lovers who are both expectant and unaware of each other's feelings, then encourages them to speak up.

The words "muntazir" (expectant) and "bekhaber" (heedless, unaware) can be either masculine or feminine; in the song, the same verses are sung alternately by the male singer (Danyal Zafar) and the female singer (Momina Mustehsan).

The lyrics and the music for this song were created by the Pakistani pop rock band "Strings", which is responsible for the production, direction, and many of the musical arrangements of the songs featured at Coke Studio.
