Akhtar Azad

Clearly, the verses are super-long here. Formatting took quite a while!


Koi chaudveen raat kaa chaand ban kar tumhaare tasavvur men
                                                                                                    aaya to ho gaa
        Kisee se to kee ho gee tum ne muhabbat, kisee ko gale se lagayaa
                                                                                                    to ho gaa

Tumhaare khayaalon kee angnaaiyon men meree yaad ke phool
                                                                                                    mehakte to hon ge
        Kabhi apnee aankhon ke kaajal se tum ne meraa naam likh kar
                                                                                                    mitaayaa to ho gaa

Labon se muhabbat kaa jaadoo lagaa kar, bharee bazm men sab se
                                                                                                    nazren churaa kar
        Nigaahon kee rahon se dil men samaa kar kisee ne tumhen bhi
                                                                                                    churaayaa to ho gaa

Kabhi aaine se nigaahen milaa kar jo lee ho gee bharpoor angraaee
                                                                                                    tu ne
        To ghabraa ke khud teree angraaeeon ne tere husn ko gudgudayaa
                                                                                                    to ho gaa

Nigaahon men shama-e-tamanna jalaa kar takee hon gee tum ne bhee
                                                                                                    raahen kisee kee
        Kisee ne to wa'dah kiyaa ho gaa tum se, kisee ne tumhen bhee
                                                                                                    rulaayaa to ho gaa
