We have all, at some point or another, dealt with distance in love. I am sure that, if we could describe it, this is how we would choose to.

Film: Asoka

Music: Anu Malik

Singer: Chitra and Abhijeet

Lyrics: 🙂

Here goes…

Raat Ka Nasha Abhi

Raat ka nasha abhi, aankh se gaya nahin,

Tera nasheela badan baahon ne chhoda nahin,

Aankhein to kholi magar sapna woh toda nahin,

Haan, wohi, woh, wohi,

Saanson pe rakha hua tere honthon ka sapna abhi hain wahin…


Tere bina bhi kabhi tujhse machal leti hoon,

Karwat badalti hoon to sapna badal leti hoon,

Tera khayaal aaye to balkha ke pal jaata hai,

Paani ki chaadar tale tan mera jal jaata hai,

 

Tere gale milne ke mausam bade hote hain,

Janmon ka waada koi, yeh gham bade chhote hain,

Lambi si ik raat ho, lamba sa ik din mile,

Bas itna sa jeena ho, milan ki ghadi jab mile…

 

Raat ka nasha abhi, aankh se gaya nahin…

 


There’s no poetry on the silver screen of Hindi cinema like Gulzar’s. If there’s a song you want the words to, please let me know in the comments below.
