manzil

bargat ke chaon se, namkin hawaaon pe
buglon ke pankh leke, duniya ki sair pe

nikle hazaaron me, kashti kinaro se
manzil tu kahe dhundhe, kho jaye hum nazaaron me...

doobe khayalon me, tinke ki naav pe
kya rishte naaton me, kya ghar kya gaaon hain

nikle hazaaron me, kashti kinaro se
manzil tu kahe dhundhe, kho jaaye hum nazaaron me...

bargad ki chaon se, duniya ki sair pe

tu mane ya na mane

rab bande di zaat ikuh, jive kapde di zaat hain rooh
kapde de wich uuh hain lukiya, kithe wich bande de tuh

aaphi bole aap banawe, aap kare hoo
aaphi bole aap bulawe, aap kare hoo

buleya je murshad mileya, mae rahi na tuh

tu mane ya na mane dildaara, asa teh taenu rab baneyah
das hor kheda rab da duwara, asa teh taenu rab baneyah

apne tan ki khaaki udhayi, tab yeh ishq ki manzil payi
meri saanso ka bole ek taara, asa teh taenu rab baneyah

tujh bin jeena bhi kya jeena, teri chaukhat mera madina
kahi aur na sajda gawara, asa teh taenu rab baneyah

yaar ko humne ja-ba-ja dekha


kahin mumkin hua kahin wajib
kahin faani kahin baqa dekha

kahin woh baadshah hai takht nasheen
kahin kaasa liye gada dekha

kahin woh dar libas-e-mashooqa
bar sar-e-naaz aur ada dekha

kahin aashiq niaz ki soorat
seena-giriya-o-dil-jala dekha

kahin zahir kahin chuppa dekha
yaar ko humne ja-ba-ja dekha

hey bhagwaan


choti si hai jindagi, usse chota ek sapna
ek baar is dharti pe, dekh loon khuda apna

raat ke andhere mein, mujhe jo ujala de
jab thak jaaon toh apni, godh ka sahara de

aaj bhi tu dekhta hoga, kahi duur saatwan aasman
kaise khoya ja raha hain, apne aap mein insaan

hey dil ko sambhaloon kaise, tanhaayi mein doobi raat hain
akele ho toh kya hua re, uska jo sahara hain

hey bhagwaan mujhko tuh, jindagi dubara de...

born free


fast, on a rough road riding
high, through the mountains climbing
twisting, turning further from my home
young, like a new moon rising
fierce, through the rain and lightning
wandering out into this great unknown
and I don't want no one to cry
but tell 'em if I don't survive

free, like a river raging
strong, if the wind I'm facing
chasing dreams and racing fathered time
deep like the grandest canyon
wild like an untamed stallion
if you can't see my heart you must be blind
you can knock me down and watch me bleed
but you can't keep no chains on me

and I'm not good at long goodbyes
But look down deep into my eyes

calm, facing danger
lost like an unknown stranger
grateful, for my time with no regrets
close to my destination
tired, frail and achin
waitin' patiently for the sun to set

and when it's done believe that I
will yell it from that mountain high

i will bow to shining seas
and celebrate God's grace on me
i was born free...

pratham dhar dhyan dinesh


pratham dhar dhyan dinesh
brahma vishnu mahesh

ab moree naiyya par karo jee
hajarat nijam uddin auliya

sujaan vichar aayo mann ma
kab piya aaye more mandirva

biraj me dhuum machaayo kaanha
kaise kar jau sakhee apane dham

dashran do shankar mahadev
mahadev tihaare charan bin

more kal nahi padat ghar pal chhin
dashran do shankar mahadev

pakadat bainya moree banvaree
chudiya kaa raas gayee sare anaadee

baansuree baaj rahee dhun madhur
kanhaiya ke raat jaago…

unforgiven


new blood joins this earth
and quickly he's subdued
through constant pain disgrace
the young boy learns their rules

with time the child draws in
this whipping boy done wrong
deprived of all his thoughts
the young man struggles on and on

he's known, a vow unto his own
that never from this day
his will they'll take away

what i've felt, what i've known
never shined through in what I've shown
never be, never see
won't see what might have been

they dedicate their lives
to running all of his
he tries to please them all
this bitter man he is

throughout his life the same
he's battled constantly
this fight he cannot win

a tired man they see no longer cares
the old man then prepares
to die regretfully
that old man here is me

you labeled me, i'll label you
so i dub thee, unforgiven
never free, never me
so I dub thee, unforgiven
