تنگ آ چُکْے ہیں
I Am Wearied
00 :01
تنگ آ چُکْے ہیں کَشْمکَش زِندگی سے ہم [x2]
تُھْکرا نہ دیں جہاں کو کہیں بے دِلی سے ہم
[mixed with movie dialog]
I am wearied with this struggle of life
I shall not stumble upon the world at all, out of dejection
[mixed with movie dialog]
00 :35
ہم غَم زَدَہ ہیں، لائیں کہاں سے خوشی کے گِیت
کہاں سے خوشی کے گِیت 
دیں گے وُہ ہی جو پایں گے اِس زِندگی سے ہم [x2]
I am grief stricken, from where would I bring songs of joy?
songs of joy … from where?
I will only give whatever I get from life
01 :10
اُبَھریں گے ایک بار ابھی دِل کے وَلوَلَے
ابھی دِل کے وَلوَلَے 
مانا کِہ دَبْ گئے ہیں غمِ زِندگی سے ہم [x2]
The heart's spirits will still rise once more
The heart's spirits … once more …
although, granted, I was buried by the grief of life
01 :44
لو آج ہم نے توڑ دِیا 
لو آج ہم نے توڑ دِیا رشتہِ اُمِّید
رشتہِ اُمِّید 
لو اب کبھی گِلہ نہ کریں گے کِسی سے ہم [x2]
See, today I have broken …
today, I have broken any hope of a relationship
hope of a relationship …
See now, I won't ever again complain to anyone

Tang Aa Chuke Hain (Hindi: तंग आ चुके हैं, Urdu: تنگ آ چُکْے ہیں) "I am Wearied" is a song from the 1957 Bollywood movie "Pyaasa".

The movie was produced, and directed by Guru Dutt, who also plays the main character, Vijay, a struggling poet.

In the movie, the song is performed a capella when Vijay, facing an audience that includes his former girlfriend, Meena (Mala Sinha ), claims to be defeated and totally disenchanted of the world.

The playback singer was Mohammed Rafi.

The lyricist for all songs in the movie, including this one, was the Urdu poet Sahir Ludhianvi, and the composer was S.D. Burman.

Later, the singer Asha Bhosle also interpreted a female version of this song, for the 1958 Bollywood movie "Light House".
