āḳhrī hichkī tire zānūñ pe aa.e

maut bhī maiñ shā.irāna chāhtā huuñ

aaKHri hichki tere zanun pe aae

maut bhi main shairana chahta hun

hameñ bhī niiñd aa jā.egī ham bhī so jā.eñge

abhī kuchh be-qarārī hai sitāro tum to so jaao

hamein bhi nind aa jaegi hum bhi so hi jaenge

abhi kuchh be-qarari hai sitaro tum to so jao

jab bhī aatā hai mirā naam tire naam ke saath

jaane kyuuñ log mire naam se jal jaate haiñ

whenever my name happens to be linked to thee

I wonder why these people burn with jealousy

jab bhi aata hai mera nam tere nam ke sath

jaane kyun log mere nam se jal jate hain

whenever my name happens to be linked to thee

I wonder why these people burn with jealousy
