Title: Phir Sawan Rut Ki Pawan Chali
Poet/Lyrics: Qateel Shifai
Length: 5:06

phir sawan rut ki pawan chali tum yaad aaye tum yaad aaye
phir patton ki pazaid baji tum yaad aaye tum yaad aaye
phir sawan rut ki pawan chali tum yaad aaye tum yaad aaye...

phir kaga bola ghar ke soonay aangan mein
phir amrat ras ki boond pari tum yaad aaye tum yaad aaye
phir sawan rut ki pawan chali tum yaad aaye tum yaad aaye...

pehle to mein cheekh ke roya aur phir hasne laga
badal garja bijli chamki tum yaad aaye tum yaad aaye
phir sawan rut ki pawan chali tum yaad aaye tum yaad aaye...

phir sawan rut ki pawan chali tum yaad aaye tum yaad aaye
phir patton ki pazaid baji tum yaad aaye tum yaad aaye
phir sawan rut ki pawan chali tum yaad aaye tum yaad aaye...

Title: Aainon Mein Yeh Jitne Chehre
Poet/Lyrics: Allama Iqbal
Length: 6:42

aaino mei yeh jitne chehre hein
aaino mei yeh jitne chehre hein
aks tere hein, aks mere hein
aks tere hein, aks mere hein
aaino mei yeh jitne chehre hein
aaino mei yeh jitne chehre hein

itne pathar agar baham ho jaa'ein, rafat-e koh-e-aasman lagay
itne zarray hoon jama kaheen, wosat-e-dasht benishaan lagay
itne taray agar chamaktay hoon, zarf-e-khurshid becharagh lagay
itne gunchay agar mehekte hoon, mosam-e-zard besuragh lagay

neel se taaba-kash gh'er dekho aik he roshni ke ghere hein
aaino mei yeh jitne chehre hein
aks tere hein, aks mere hein
aks tere hein, aks mere hein
aaino mei yeh jitne chehre hein
aaino mei yeh jitne chehre hein

sub musafir hein aik raste ke, aik manzil pe sub ko jana hai
apni apni hadon mein rehte hoay, ik naya daira banana hai
roshni jo hira se photi thi, us mei rehna hai jagmagana hai
majd se uthne wali khushbo ka, phir se ub muntazir zamana hai

tara tara bikharte jain gay jitne sa'ay hein jo andehre hein
aaino mei yeh jitne chehre hein
aks tere hein, aks mere hein
aks tere hein, aks mere hein
aaino mei yeh jitne chehre hein
aaino mei yeh jitne chehre hein

Title: Hijab Ko Benaqab Hona Tha
Poet/Lyrics: Javed Akhtar
Length: 7:07

hijab ko benaqab hona tha
haan mujhee ko kharab hona tha
hijab ko benaqab hona tha, hijaab ko...

kheli bachpan mein aankh macholi bohot (bachpan = childhood; aankh macholi = hide and go seek)
aaya shabaab to hisaab hona tha (shabaab = juvenility)
hijab ko benaqab hona tha, hijaab ko...

saath rehte hein raat din ki tarah
tum ho mahtaab mujhe aftaab hona tha (mahtaab = moonlight, aaftab = sun)
hijab ko benaqab hona tha, hijaab ko...

meri aankhon ka kuch qusoor nahi (qusoor = fault)
husn ko lajawaab hona tha (lajawaab = matchless)
hijab ko benaqab hona tha, hijaab ko...

tha muqaddar mein hamara milna (muqaddar = fate, destiny)
magar na hum ne kahan kaamyaab hona tha
hijab ko benaqab hona tha, hijaab ko...

hijab ko benaqab hona tha
haan mujhee ko kharab hona tha
hijab ko benaqab hona tha, hijaab ko...

Length: 7:44

din mein kab socha karte thay so'en gay hum raat kahan

soch rahe hein in hathon se choota tha wo haath kahan

kia tum ne unko dekha hai kia unse baatein kii hein
tum ko kia samjha'en yaaro khayi hum ne maat kahan

barso baad mile hum unse dono thay sharminda se
dono ne chahaa bhi laikin phir aati wo baat kahan

din mein kab socha karte thay so'en gay hum raat kahan
ub aise aawara ghoomein apne wo halaat kahan

Title: Kabhi Dil Se Na Tera Dard
Poet/Lyrics: Purnam Allahbadi (hmm couldn't find a link on him e-mail me if you know)
Length: 6:16

kabhi dil se na tera dard nikle, nikalti hai to aah-e-sard nikle
kabhi dil se na tera dard nikle, nikalti hai to aah-e-sard nikle
kabhi dil se na tera dard nikle...

bari ummed thi tum se karam ki, magar tum bhi baray be-dard nikle
nikalti hai to aah-e-sard nikle
kabhi dil se na tera dard nikle...

khizaan ka khouf tha jin ke dilon mein, unhi pholon ke chehre zard nikle
nikalti hai to aah-e-sard nikle
kabhi dil se na tera dard nikle...

keeya barbaad armanon ne dil ko, mere dushman to ghar ke fard nikle
nikalti hai to aah-e-sard nikle
kabhi dil se na tera dard nikle...

kabhi dil se na tera dard nikle, nikalti hai to aah-e-sard nikle
kabhi dil se na tera dard nikle, nikalti hai to aah-e-sard nikle
kabhi dil se na tera dard nikle...

Title: Jab Rat Dhali Aadhi

Length: 8:32

jab raat dhali aadhi maikhane ko hosh aaya
angrai li botal ne paimane ko hosh aaya

jab raat dhali aadhi maikhane ko hosh aaya
angrai li botal ne paimane ko hosh aaya

jab raat dhali aadhi maikhane ko hosh aaya
angrai li botal ne paimane ko hosh aaya

vocables

utha jo naqaab unka deewane ko hosh aaya
jab shamma howi roshan parwane ko hosh aaya
jab raat dhali aadhi maikhane ko hosh aaya...

phir dard utha dil mein phir yaad teri aayi
phir teri mohabbat ke afsanay ko hosh aaya
jab raat dhali aadhi maikhane ko hosh aaya...

vocables

in mast nigahon ne girtay ko sambhala hai
sagar ke saharay se mastanay ko hosh aaya
jab raat dhali aadhi maikhane ko hosh aaya...

wo daikho fana daikho jaam aa ga'ay gardish mein
wo mast nazar uthi maikhane ko hosh aaya
jab raat dhali aadhi maikhane ko hosh aaya...

jab raat dhali aadhi maikhane ko hosh aaya
angrai li botal ne paimane ko hosh aaya
jab raat dhali aadhi maikhane ko hosh aaya...

Poet/Lyrics: Qateel Shafai
Length: 8:13

jab kisi jaam ko hoton se lagaya mein ne
raqs karta hoa dekha tera saya mein ne

mujh se mut poch mere mohtasib-e-shehar se poch
kiyoon teri aankh ko paimana banaya mein ne

loag kehte hein qasida woh tere husn ka tha
aam sa geet jo mehfil mei sunaya mein ne

maikada bund tha laikin joon he garja badal
apni tauba ko chatakh'ta hoa paya mein ne

shair-o-naghmat ka rishta kabhi tota na qateel
jab ghazal bun ke woh aaya usay paya mein ne

jab kisi jaam ko hoton se lagaya mein ne
raqs karta hoa dekha tera saya mein ne

janay lagi re yeh kaise aganya, haye jalay re mora mun,urh gayi re nindya mori

howi re gum sum, bolay na chun chun, bhooli payalya ko dhun, na he chamke bindiya mori
bolay na kangna babul ke angna more behno ko bhaya bhi de

barsay naina tarsay naina kisay milan ko dhonday sajan ko
goriya chali pee ke des re
goriya chali pee ke des re

poray sapnay hoay ghair apne hoay

barsay naina tarsay naina kisay milan ko dhonday sajan ko
goriya chali pee ke des re
