Parwaan.

ishq ka parwaan hi tha wo

haathon mein angaare the

kaha hi nahi kisine

aaj haath jala hai

kal duniya bhi

ishq ka parwaan hi tha wo

hum kehte rahe

tum mere ho

aur unhone sun ke

unsuna kar diya

ishq ka parwaan hi tha wo

duniya ke saare rang

tumhari aankhon mien dikhe

yeh dhyaan hi na raha

ki yeh behoshi ka aalam hai

ishq ka parwaan hi tha wo

ki tum aage bad gayein

aur hum

raaste ke kinaare

tumhara maqbara bana baithe.

aur ab jab paseene ki parat maathe pe hai

aur dil mein kuchh chubhta sa dard

to yaad aaya

mausam badalta hai

to tabiyat kharab hone ka

andesha hota hai.

English Version (on request)

they called it the pinnacle of love

coals in my hand

no one told me

my life would burn next

they called it the pinnacle of love

i kept calling him mine

he listened

and then didn’t

they called it the pinnacle of love

i saw the colors of the rainbow

in his eyes

and forgot

that i was hallucinating

they called it the pinnacle of love

he moved on

and i made a mausoleum

where our paths had crossed

and now as the fever breaks

and my heart follows suit

i realise

changing weather makes me sick.
