Khone Do

Haqeeqat ko lifaafe mein daal,
Daak se bhej diya parle kinaar,

Kaagaz ki naav mein saari sachchai daal,
Bahaa diya ussey Jamuna paar.

Mujhe zaroorat nahi saari asli baatein,
Mujhe anginat khwaab bone do.

Aur raat ki sooni hatheli pakde,
Chhup chhup ke tanha rone do.

Mujhe aaj, apne aap mein hi
Khone do, jee khone do.

I have sealed reality away in an envelope,
Mailed it away to The Other Side,

Crafted all of the world's truths into a paper-boat,
Have set it sail from the banks of the Yamuna,

I don't need to face reality,
Just let me sew my endless dreams,

And clutching on to the bare hands of Night,
Let me cry to myself

Tonight, let me find solace,
Within myself
