Abida Parveen | I am drunk with love and yet thirsty

Alas, don't tell me the Christians are lost.
Don't tell me the Jews are lost.
Don't tell me the infidels are lost.
Alas, my brother, you are lost,
That is why everyone else seems lost.

Main nara-e-mastana, main shouqi- e- rindana
Main tashna kahan jaaon, pee kar bhi kahan jana
Slogan of Inebriation am I, drunkard mercurialness am I
drink may I , may I not hardly does it make a difference
Main souz-e-mohabbat hoon, main aik qayamat hoon
Main ashk-e-nadaamat hoon, main gouhar-e-yakdana
A burning heat of love am I, the eventual
Tear of ignominy , a pearl unfound am I
Main tahir-e-lahooti, main johar-e-malkooti
Nasoot ne kab mujh ko is haal mein pehchana
Pern of heaven, the gem of empires and I
Hath when humanity known me so?
Main sham-e- farozan hoon, main aatish-e-larza hoon
Main sozish-e-hijraan hoon, main manzil-e-parwana
Illuminating light of the dusk, a raging flame am I
Mordancy of parting, Destination of Pyralid am I
Kis yaad ka sehera hoon, kis chashm ka darya hoon
Khud toor ka jalwa hoon, hai shakl qalbhana
A desert of thoughts, a river of which fall?
the biggest reality of the universe yet unrevealed
Main husn-e-mujassim hoon, main gesu-e-barham hoon
Main phool hoon shabnam hoon, main jalwa-e-janana
A frozen beauty am I, a ringlet in anger
A flower, the dew am I, beauty of the beloved
Main wasif-e-bismil hoon, main ronaq-e-mehfil hoon
Ik toota howa dil hoon, main shehar mein veerana
Wasif, slayed am I, heart of the crowd
A broken heart am I, a lonely in the city.
