Splendor in the Dark

Badalta mausam, charta suraj dekha
Tum ne mera ehsas na dekha
Dhalti shaam, gehri raat dekhi
Tum ne meri dil ki pyas na dekhi
Subh ka ujala, sawera dekha
Tum ne mere pe ayi tanhai ka basera na dekha
Lehren samandar ki, asmaani bijli dekhi
Tum ne mere wujud ki bujhi hui ragini na dekhi
Chaand ko dekha, suraj ko dekha
Tum ne mere takhayul pe aya garehan na dekha
Dhuwan dekha, wabal dekha
Tum ne mere dil ka malal na dekha
Maine tum ko dekha–tum ne mujhko dekha
Beech mai ayi waqt ki dewar ko na dekha

Ghari

Qyamat ki kia ghari hogi
Sab ko bas apni he pari hogi

Kia karain gai ashiq sarai
Kia yaad ayen gai jinke jeete thai wo saharai

Is khel ko tabhi gham-e-hijran kehte hain
Isko hum he yun sehte hain

Vortex

Baat bas itni hai
Tujhe sameta nahi maine,
Tor dene k baad
Baat bas itni hai
Tujhe tora nahi maine,
Bikher dene k baad
Baat bas itni hai
Tujhe bikhera nahi maine,
Chah lene k baad
Baat bas itni hai
Tujhe chah lia maine,
Khud ko tor lene k baad
Baat bas itni hai
Tune samjha nahi mujhko
Bikher dene k baad
Baat sirf yehi hai
Maine khud ko paya nahi hai
Tujh ko kho dene k baad

Aj wohi shor barpa hua hai
Wohi shamyane baj rhe hain
Wohi visaal ki ghariyan a gayi hain
Wohi firaaq ka badal–paglaya sa
Wohi tanhayi phir se a khari hai
Wohi dard ankhon mai
Sab he mai khane mai akathe hue hain
Apne dard ka dhol pit rahe hain
Wohi shor barpa hai
Itne log hain muhabbat krne wale
Itne log hain ishq krne ko
Aur ulfat faqat chand se hui hai
Itni ankhen dub gayi hain
Kisi ajnabi si zid mai
Au wo wahin hai
Hairaan khari hai
Phir se akeli reh gayi hai
Kon bataye inko
Shab-e-tamana hai shewa uska
Rangon se nikal kar pasand hai
Andhere mai dub jana usko
Itne log hain ishq krne ko
Par ulfat faqat chand se hui hai
Lekin Ronaq ka nahi koi dewana
Isko isi trha ata hai sath nibhana
