patthar ke sanam, ... tujhe hamm ne... muhabbat kaa Khudaa jaanaa,
STONY BELOVED...WE TOOK YOU FOR THE GOD OF LOVE,

patthar ke sanam, tujhe hamm ne, muhabbat kaa Khudaa jaanaa,
STONY BELOVED, WE TOOK YOU FOR THE GOD OF LOVE,

ba.dee bhool huwee,
A BLUNDER IT WAS,

arre hamm ne, yeh kyaa samjhaa, yeh kyaa jaanaa,
OH WE DIDN’T UNDERSTAND, DIDN’T KNOW,

patthar ke sanaam....
STONY BELOVED...


chehraa teraa, dil me.n liye,
BEHOLDING YOUR FACE IN THE HEART

chalte rahe a.ngaaro.n pe,
WE KEPT WALKING ON EMBERS,

tuu ho kaheen....
SOMEWHERE ELSE YOU’RE...

tuu ho kahee.n,
SOMEWHERE ELSE YOU’RE,

sajde kiye, hamm ne tere rukhsaaro.n pe,
WE PROSTRATED AT YOUR CHEEKS,

hamm saa na ho... koee deevaanaa,
MAY THERE BE NO LUNATIC LIKE US.

patthar ke sanam, ... tujhe hamm ne... muhabbat kaa Khudaa jaanaa,
STONY BELOVED...WE TOOK YOU FOR THE GOD OF LOVE,

patthar ke sanam...
STONY BELOVED...


sochaa thaah yeh,
THIS WE’D THOUGHT:

ba.dh jaaye.ngee, tanhaaiyaa.n jab raato.n kee,
WHEN LONELINESS OF THE NIGHTS WOULD INCREASE

rastaa hame.n....
TO US, THE WAY...

rastaa hame.n... dikhalaaeegi ,
TO US, THE WAY WOULD BE SHOWN

shamme-vafaa un haatho.n kee,
BY THE LOYAL LAMPS OF THOSE HANDS,

Thokar lagee, phir pehchaanaa.
WE STUMBLED, THEN WE RECOGNIZED.


patthar ke sanam, ... tujhe hamm ne... muhabbat kaa Khudaa jaanaa,
STONY BELOVED...WE TOOK YOU FOR THE GOD OF LOVE,

patthar ke sanam...
STONY BELOVED....

ay kaash ke, hotee khabar,
OH IF YOU ONLY KNEW

tuune kise Thukraayaa hai,
WHOM YOU’VE JILTED,

sheeshaa nahee.n, saaghar nahee.n,
NOT THE GLASS, NOR THE GOBLET,

ma.ndir-saa ik dil Dhaayaa hai,
A TEMPLE-LIKE HEART YOU’VE RAZED,

sau aasmaa.n...., hai veeraanaa,
HUNDRED HEAVENS HAVE BEEN RAVAGED.


patthar ke sanam, tujhe hamm ne, muhabbat kaa Khudaa jaanaa,
STONY BELOVED...WE TOOK YOU FOR THE GOD OF LOVE,

ba.dee bhool huwee,
A BLUNDER IT WAS,

arre hamm ne, yeh kyaa samajhaa, yeh kyaa jaanaa,
OH WE DIDN’T UNDERSTAND, DIDN’T KNOW,

patthar ke sanam ...
STONY BELOVED...

NASIR.

To find yourself jilted is a blow to your pride. Do your best to forget it and if you don't succeed, at least pretend to."
- Molière
