Karoge Yaad To

Lyrics by Bashar Nawaz

karoge yaad to har baat yaad aayegi
guzarte waqt ki har mauj thehar jayegi

Mauj: Caprice, Enjoyment, Ecstasy, Plenty, Surge, Wave
Thehar: Stop

yeh chand beete zamanon ka aaina hoga
bhatakti abr mein chehra koi bana hoga
udaas raah koi daastaan sunayegi

Beeta: Past, Elapsed
Aaina: Mirror, Looking Glass
Bhatakta: Errant, Roaming
Abr: Cloud
Daastaan: Story, Fable, Tale

barasta bheegta mausam dhuan-dhuan hoga
pighalti shammon pe dil ka mere gumaan hoga
hatheliyon ki heena yaad kuchh dilayegi

Dhuan: Smoke
Pighalna: Assuage, Liquefy, Melt, Mollify
Shamma: Lamp, Candle, Flame
Gumaan: Distrust, Deception, Doubt, Fancy, Likelihood, Mistrust, Opinion, Pride, Suspicion, Surmise, Thought
Hatheli: Palm of the hand
Heena: The plant Lawsonia inermis, Egyptian privet or Indian myrtle, henna (used for dyeing the hands and feet and hair)

gali ke modh pe soona sa koi darwaaza
tarasti aankhon se rasta kisi ka dekhega
nigaah door talak jaa ke laut aayegi

Modh: Turn, bend, winding (as of a road, or a river)
Soona: Empty, Desolate, Lone, Lonely, Void
Tarasta: Thirsty
Talak: Till
