Sadness lingers in this romantic number of Rafi Sahaab: Tumne Mujhe Dekha...

Roman Transliteration/English Translation of the original lyrics:



tum ne mujhe, dekhaa, ho kar, mehrbaa.n,
YOU LOOKED UPON ME WITH COMPASSION,

ruk gayee yeh zamee.n, tham gayaa aasmaa.n,
THE EARTH STOOD STILL, THE HEAVENS CAME TO A HALT,

jaan-e-mann, jaan-e-jaa.n,
O SWEETHEART, SOUL OF MY SOUL,

tum ne mujhe, dekhaa, ho kar, mehrbaa.n,
YOU LOOKED UPON ME WITH COMPASSION,

ruk gayee yeh zamee.n, tham gayaa aasmaa.n,
THE EARTH STOOD STILL, THE HEAVENS CAME TO A HALT,

jaan-e-mann, jaan-e-jaa.n,
O SWEETHEART, SOUL OF MY SOUL,

tum ne mujhe, dekhaa,...
YOU LOOKED UPON ME....


o~~ kahee.n dard ke sehraa me.n, rukte chalte hote,
MOVING, RESTING, SOMEWHERE IN THE WASTELAND OF PAIN,

inn ho.nTho.n kee hasrat me.n, tapte, jalte hote,
FLUSHED AND BURNING WITH DESIRE FOR THESE LIPS,

mehrbaa.n ho gayee.n, zulf kee badliyaa.n,
CURLS OF BLACK-CLOUDS TURNED BENEVOLENT,

jaan-e-mann, jaan-e-jaa.n,
O SWEETHEART, SOUL OF MY SOUL,

tum ne mujhe, dekhaa, ho kar, mehrbaa.n,
YOU LOOKED UPON ME WITH COMPASSION,

ruk gayee yeh zamee.n, tham gayaa aasmaa.n,
THE EARTH STOOD STILL, THE HEAVENS CAME TO A HALT,

jaan-e-mann, jaan-e-jaa.n,
O SWEETHEART, SOUL OF MY SOUL,

tum ne mujhe, dekhaa,...
YOU LOOKED UPON ME....


O~~ lekar yeh hasee.n jalwe, tum bhee na kahaa.n pahu.nche,
WITH ALL THIS BEAUTIFUL DISPLAY, WHERE YOU, TOO, HAVE LANDED,

aakhir ko mere dil tak qadmo.n, ke nishaa.n pahu.nche,
AT LAST, THE FOOT-PRINTS HAVE REACHED UP TO MY HEART,

khatm se ho gaye, raaste sab yahaa.n,
ALL THE PATHS SEEM TO HAVE ENDED HERE,

jaan-e-mann, jaan-e-jaa.n,
O SWEETHEART, SOUL OF MY SOUL,

tum ne mujhe, dekhaa, ho kar, mehrbaa.n,
YOU LOOKED UPON ME WITH COMPASSION,

ruk gayee yeh zamee.n, tham gayaa aasmaa.n,
THE EARTH STOOD STILL, THE HEAVENS CAME TO A HALT,

jaan-e-mann, jaan-e-jaa.n,
O SWEETHEART, SOUL OF MY SOUL,

tum ne mujhe, dekhaa, ho kar, mehrbaa.n,
YOU LOOKED UPON ME WITH COMPASSION,

NASIR.
