LYRIC

I await you
All the fallen
In the Garden of Remembrance
Like a Sufi

Bobai bobai suin kya ranuth peer saeri samkhin aai
Oh grandmother, what did you cook for dinner? Peers have come to dine

I feel you swirl, in my thoughts,
Like a Sufi

Be hai samkhai
Shall meet you

In those hosts of names, I hold on to yours
Like a Sufi

Be hai samkhai
Shall meet you

Break free of the chains, twirl in freedom
Like a Sufi

Lol jigras jigre lol wandai
To you, I give my heart full of longing

Astanan Khasai
Oh I shall walk to ‘astaan’

Never a slave
Never a slave

Deedar Karai
And we shall be face to face

Hey
The youngest son of Haleema
Was born in a curfew
Sweat drips from her neck
Baby loves the perfume
I mean look, for sure her
Whole world is a conflict
Where machine guns roar and
She can’t stop it

So she holds him tight
Never far from her sight
Prays five times a day
Let her children be safe
See the light of the day
May they see the light of the day
Let her children be safe

Lol jigras kartiem Kanje kanje che kati pane
You shattered my longing heart into small pieces oh where do you hide!
Lol Jigras kartiem Teer che peer panas.
You pierced sharp arrows into my longing heart and there you sit like a saint!
Lol jigras kartiem Kanje kanje che kati pane
You shattered my longing heart into small pieces o where do you hide!
Lol Jigras kartiem Teer che peer panas.
You pierced sharp arrows into my longing heart and there you sit like a saint!

Be hai samkhai
Shall meet you
Be hai samkhai
Shall meet you

Taveez karo, Taqreer karo, Astano mein tum khud se milo
Do all that you can to hide your truth, Alas one day you shall face your own self.
Taveez karo, Taqreer karo, Astano mein tum khud se milo
Do all that you can to hide your truth, Alas one day you shall face your own self.

Your smile could burn a hole,
Through the core of my sorrow
I was I glad you were there
Or was I bitter and hollow
A part of me was dead
Losing more every morrow
You could sense my inner darkness
I was empty and heartless

But I could swear by your tears
You were all that I needed
I found solace in your arms
When I was feeling defeated
There were wounds in my mind
Spilling blood through my eyes
Spitting rhetoric every time I gave you nothing but lies

Lol jigras kartiem Kanje kanje che kati pane
You shattered my longing heart into small pieces oh where do you hide!
Lol Jigras kartiem Teer che peer panas.
You pierced sharp arrows into my longing heart and there you sit like a saint!
Lol jigras kartiem Kanje kanje che kati pane
You shattered my longing heart into small pieces oh where do you hide!
Lol Jigras kartiem Teer che peer panas.
You pierced sharp arrows into my longing heart and there you sit like a saint!

So I can’t understand
Why they build walls around your heart
Made me wonder what is real
Whether you were just a thought
Kept apart by the truth
Or just a figment of my art
Where you a poem I wrote
Or the dream that I sought
I feel asleep on this page
Left it stained and blurry
And this grave of nothingness
Its memories I buried
Is there a place for your past
All you see is just snow
But do you realise with time
That it’s time to let go
Is it time to let go?
No
Never

Lol jigras kartiem Kanje kanje che kati pane
You shattered my longing heart into small pieces oh where do you hide!
Lol Jigras kartiem Teer che peer panas.
You pierced sharp arrows into my longing heart and there you sit like a saint!
Lol jigras kartiem Kanje kanje che kati pane
You shattered my longing heart into small pieces oh where do you hide!
Lol Jigras kartiem Teer che peer panas.
You pierced sharp arrows into my longing heart and there you sit like a saint!
