Lyrics Sardar Anjum

jab kabhii teraa naam lete hain
dil se ham inteqaam lete hain

merii barbaadiyon ke afasaane
mere yaaron kaa naam lete hain

bas yahii ek jurm hai apanaa
ham muhabbat se kaam lete hain

har qadam par gire magar siikhaa
kaise giraton ko thaam lete hain

ham bhaTak kar junuuN kii raahon men aql se intaqaam lete hain
