Tere siwa kya jaane koi

dil ki halat Rabba

saamne tere guzri mujh par
Kaisi qayamat Rabba
Main wo kis tarah se karun bayan

jo kiye giye hain sitam yahan
Sune kon meri yeh daastan

koi hamnasheen hai na raazdan
Jo tha jhoot wo bana sach yahan

nai kholi maine magar zuban
Yeh akela pan yeh udaasiyan

meri zindagi ki hai tarjuman
Meri zaat zara e benishan
Meri zaat zara e benishan
Kabhee sooni subhun main ghoomna

kabhee ujri shaamon ko daikhna
Kabhee bheegi aankhun se jaagna

kabhee beete lamhun ko sochna
Magar ek pal hai umeed ka

hai mujhe Khuda ka jo aasra
Na hi maine koi gilla kiya

na hi maine di hain duhaiyan
Meri zaat zara e benishan
Meri zaat zara e benishan
Main bataun kya mujhe kya mille

mujhe sabr hi ka silla mile
Kissi yaad hi ki rida mille

kissi dard hi ka silla mile
Kisi gham ki dil main jagah mille

jo mera hai wo mujhe aa mille
Rahe shaad yuhin mera jahan

k yeh yaqeen main badle mera gumaan
Meri zaat zara e benishan
Meri zaat zara e benishan
