Rabba, mere haal da mehram tuun

This has to be one of my favourite songs lately, it’s from a Pakistani TV series called “Digest Writer”, produced by Hum TV.

Here are the lyrics, and I’ve tried my hand at translating it as well.

حسرتوں کی ایک نشانی ہوں میں / I am a sign of many desires
خاموش ہوں، آنکھ کا پانی ہوں میں / I am silent, I am the teardrops of the eyes
مجھے کوئی نہ پڑھ پاے / No one has been able to understand me
ایسی پوشیدہ سی ایک کہانی ہوں میں / I am such a concealed story

ربّا میرے حال دا محرم توں / Oh Lord, you know well the secret of my heart
اندر وی توں باہر وی توں / You are within me, and all around me
ربّا میرے حال دا محرم توں / Oh Lord, you know well the secret of my heart
اندر وی توں باہر وی توں / You are within me, and all around me
… ربّا / Oh Lord

 جب کوئی منزل پار کروں / Each time I achieve a goal (aim)
کھو جانے کے اندیشے سے ڈروں / I fear that I will lose myself
یوں لگتا ہے جیسے کے کوئی / It feels as if
ڈھلتی سی اک جوانی ہوں میں / I am the youth (age) withering away

ربّا میرے حال دا محرم توں / Oh Lord, you know well the secret of my heart
اندر وی توں باہر وی توں / You are within me, and all around me
ربّا میرے حال دا محرم توں / Oh Lord, you know well the secret of my heart
اندر وی توں باہر وی توں / You are within me, and all around me
… ربّا / Oh Lord

راتوں میں دیپ جلاتی ہوں میں / In the nights I create hope within
کچھ خواب سے پھر بناتی ہوں / I create some dreams again
صحراؤں کی تپتی دھوپ کبھی / Sometimes I am the scorching sun of the desert
کبھی صبح بادے سہانی ہوں میں / And sometimes the beauty of dawn

ربّا میرے حال دا محرم توں / Oh Lord, you know well the secret of my heart
اندر وی توں باہر وی توں / You are within me, and all around me
ربّا میرے حال دا محرم توں / Oh Lord, you know well the secret of my heart
اندر وی توں باہر وی توں / You are within me, and all around me
… ربّا / Oh Lord

And of course, credit must be given to the people behind this exceptional output.
