I just happend to hear this song from latest movie Jhoom Barabar jhoom casting BIG B. Rahatfateh ali khan happens to be my all time favourite singer, so his voice attracted me obviously but while hearing its lyrics fully i just fell in love with it again.
Noe other thn by Gulzar – mastero of words, its awsome.
Look at the themes he is using – ek khwab le, ek khwab de, neend ka sauda kren !! Its simply sensual…..
Dhaage tod laao chandani se noor ke
Ghoonghat hi banalo roshini se noor ke
Sharma gai to aagosh mein lo
ho Saaaso se uljhi rahi meri saasein
Aa neend ka sauda karein
Ek khwaab de ek khwaab le
Ek khwaab to aankhon mein hai
Ek chand ke takiye tale
Kitne dino se yeh asmaan bhi
soya nahi hai
Isko sula de…
Umrein lagi kehte hue
do lafaj the ek baat thi
Woh ek din sau saal ka
Sau saal ki woh raat thi
Kaise lage jo chupchap dono
Palpal mein puri sadiyan beetadein
