In Lamhon ke daaman mein
Pakeezah se rishte hai
Koi Kalma Mohabbat ka
Dohrate farsihte hai

Raste mein hai uska Ghar
Kal Subah Dekha toh,
Baal banati voh
Khidki mein aayi Nazar

Mai Koi Aisa geet gaoon
Ke aarzoon jagaoon
Agar Tum Kaho
Tum ko bulaoon
Yeh palkein bichaoon
Qadam Tum Kaha rakho
Zameen ko aasma banaoon
Sitaron se Sajaoon
Agar Tum kahoon
