aap ki yaad aati rahi raat bhar
chashm-e-nam muskuraati rahi raat bhar

raat bhar dard ki shamaa jalati rahi
gam ki lau tharatharaati rahi raat bhar

baansuri ki surili suhaani sadaa
yaad ban banake aati rahi raat bhar

yaad ki chaand dil me utarati rahi
chaandani dagamagaati rahi raat bhar

koi divaanaa galiyo me phirataa rahaa
koi aavaaz aati rahi raat bhar

Translation(a very poor one)

Memories of you haunted me all night
Tear filled eyes glistened all night

All night, the lamp of pain kept burning
The flames of sorrow flickered all night

The melodious, enticing sound of a flute
Kept reminding me of you all night

Your memory, like rising moon, enters my heart
The moonlight of memory gleamed all night

A love addict loitered alone in the lanes
The haunting sound kept coming all night
