Whether He Stays Close or Keeps Away

وہ پاس رہیں یا دُور رہیں
نظروں میں سمائے رہتے ہیں
اتنا تو بتا دے کوئی ہمیں
کیا پیار اِسی کو کہتے ہیں
[all stanza x2]
Whether he stays close or keeps away
he keeps permeating my sight
Tell me this much:
Is this the very thing they call love?
[all stanza x2]

چھوٹی سی بات محبت کی [x2]
اَور وُہ بھی کہی نہیں جاتی
کُچھ وہ شرمائے رہتے ہیں
کُچھ ہم شرمائے رہتے ہیں
It's kind of a small word of affection [x2]
and not even that is said
He keeps hesitating a little
I keep hesitating a little

وہ پاس رہیں یا دُور رہیں
نظروں میں سمائے رہتے ہیں
اتنا تو بتا دے کوئی ہمیں
کیا پیار اِسی کو کہتے ہیں
Whether he stays close or keeps Away
he keeps permeating my sight
Tell me this much:
Is this the very thing they call love?

ملنے کی گھڑیاں چھوٹی ہیں [x2]
اَور رات جدائی کی لانبی
جب ساری دُنیا سوتی ہے
ہم تارے گِنْتے رہتے ہیں
The moments of encounter are short [x2]
and nights of separations are long
When all the world sleeps
I keep counting stars
