Laiyaan laiyaan - Rizwan Anwar (Cover)

When it comes to folk, there is something about Punjabi love songs and their lyrics that make them so beautiful and touching, Laiyaan Laiyaan is one of them.
Originally sung by Zulfiqar Ali, from the Pakistani movie Chooriyan.
And the last verse is taken from Kailash Kher's song Saiyaan.
This is a cover by Saad Sultaan feat. Rizwan Anwar
Great voice with acoustic guitars and the beautiful lyrics ! Enjoy the song.





laiyaan laiyaan main tere naal dholna ve
laiyaan laiyaan main tere naal dholna

ik dil si reha mere kol na

ve main lutti gayi aan dholna
dholna, ve main lutti gayi aan

laiyaan laiyaan

sadhra de buhe ve main ter layi khole
hovi na tu kadi hun akhiyaan to ole

tere naal tarna tere naal dubna
tere naal jeena tere naal marna

pyar mera tu takdi ch tol na ve
pyar mera tu takdi ch tol na

ik dil si reha mere kol na

ve main lutti gayi aan dholna
ve main lutti gayi aan dholna

laiyaan laiyaan

tu jo chule pyaar se aaraam se mar jau
aaja chanda baahon me tujhme hi gum ho jau me
tere naam pe kho jau
saiyaan saiyaan

The words laiyaan laiyaan in the very first line of the song have two different meanings..Together the phrase means that the girl feels attached to the person she loves..All her thoughts,emotions,feelings,hopes n aspirations are related to him..She has dedicated everything she possesses to him..And since he has stolen her heart,she feels not only attached and addicted to him, but also afraid of the fact that she can not even imagine her life without him now..

The word 'sadhra' symbolizes hopes n expectations..She expects him to be there with her,for his presence in her life means everything to her..She wants him to stay in her life,always n forever..Once again,she feels addicted to him and separation seems to be her biggest fear..

The line "tere naal tarna, tere naal dubna" might seem to be very simple and straightforward..but it conveys a much deeper meaning..She wants to live with him,love him,support him, both in good and bad times.. She promises to stay with him, till death takes them apart..

"pyar mera tu takdi ch tol na"... She herself does not know how much she loves him, for love is something that can never be predicted, never be stopped, never be inculcated and hence never be measured..

The lyrics convey feelings of true love, the way a person becomes your life,your soul,everything to you..And the mere thought of staying away from him makes you feel as if you have no existence and your life has no meaning..As they say, you fall in love when you meet someone you know you cannot live without.. The fear of separation, is perhaps, one of the worst fears that exist in the universe..This fear,this addiction, makes her say "ve main lutti gayi aan"...

"tu jo choo le ....saiyaan"  These lines, once again, describe her committment to him..All she needs to be happy is his presence,the security and comfort of being in his arms, the pleasure of being lost in his love..
She can do anything for him, for her beloved..

Simple lyrics, beautiful concept and above all a soothing voice makes it an amazing song..The song beautifully describes being lost in love, the madness, the addiction..Nothing can be more painful than the pain of separation, but at the same time, nothing can be more beautiful than the feeling of being in love..
At the end, just one thing to say...If you have found that someone who cannot live without you, who loves you so much that you mean everything to him, never let the pain of separation come between the two of you !!

Hope you loved the song !!

Keep listening, keep reading and keep smiling !!

Reidi Gul - Yasir and jawad and wali Lyrics Uth records

Recently I was going through some brand new songs from some forums and I came across this song 'Reidi Gul'.The moment I heard the Rabab playing the first thing that came to my mind was the pushto darri song by Zeb and Haniya. And, to my surprise, this song is also in Pushto. Then I googled and found about it. There is a Uth Records organised in our brother nation Pakistan. And the theme is that it calls upon fresh artists and bands with their original composition to come and perform. It gives them a platform to prove themselves and get a chance in the music industry that awaits them,which I think is a beautiful idea. In most of the singing talent shows that I have seen they hardly care about original compositions. So here I present to you a beautiful Pushto song Reidi Gul that is a poetry of Ghani Khan. Hope you guys enjoy it.






Intro:
Yawa wraze yao Sahra ke pa khkaar ootay wam rawan
Yo Gulab me walar olid prakeda, khaista khanda


[In a desert, once, on a hunt did I find,
With a radiant smile, a flower so fair;]


Verse 1:
Yawa wraze yao Sahra k pa khkaar ootay wam rawan
Yao Gulab me walar olid prakeda, khaista khanda


[In a desert, once, on a hunt did I find,
With a radiant smile, a flower so fair;]


Za khafa ye khwa la laram, ma wayl 'Aaah zama pashan
ta hum gul ye bad-naseeba, ruk da zulfo da janan'


[Sadly, I approached and sighed, “Ah! Of my kind
Are you too – a hapless flower from a beloved's hair.]


Na da cha nyazbinay gutay naram makh la ba de yaosi
Na ba khkul de ki sray shunday, da yar sra nazak labaan


[Frail fingers wouldn't take you to a soft face so close,
Nor would you be kissed by lips delicate and rose.”]


Chorus 1:
Hagha ghalay shan muskay sho, wayl khan maa kawa khafgan
Hagha ghalay shan muskay sho, wayl khan maa kawa khafgan


[With a silent smile the flower replied, “Don't lose heart!
With a silent smile the flower replied, “Don't lose heart!]


Verse 2:
Za ba da sahra war na kram da Iran pa Gulistan
Dalta za yaw ao yak-ta yam, alta zar zama pashan


[This desert I wouldn't give up for the gardens of Iran,
A solitary I am here while legions are there,]


Char chapera speray khaoray, za yawaze yama raokhan

[Amidst this cursed soil I stand apart.]

Dalta de tor Registan k za da rang ao noor lamba yam
Da khaais chapa naghma yam, karishma da laa-makan

[In this gray desert, a flamboyant flame of divine light am I,
Beauty's silent song, a miracle from the sky.]

Chorus 2:
Sta pa bagh ke pa zargunu di gulaab, zama pashan
Sta pa bagh ke pa zargunu di gulaab, zama pashan

[In your garden, there are thousands of flowers like me
In your garden, there are thousands of flowers like me]

(Rabab Solo)

Verse 3:
Dalta de tor Registan k za da rang ao noor lamba yam
Da khais chapa naghma yam, karishma da laa-makan

[In this gray desert, a flamboyant flame of divine light am I,
Beauty's silent song, a miracle from the sky.]

Sta pa bagh ke pa zargunu di gulaab, zama pashan
Yao be-numa sur daryab ke yao be-noom saskay rawan


[In your garden, there are thousands of flowers like me –
A nameless droplet in a nameless sea.]


Ta de hum pa khpal sahra ke khafa mashay zama rora !
Akhir ra ba shi deedan la de sok saway Ghani Khan..


[You too, in your desert, don't feel forlorn,
To behold you at last shall come a sore Ghani Khan.]


Chorus 3:
Akhir ra ba shi deedan la de sook saway Ghani Khan
Akhir ra ba shi deedan la de sook saway Ghani Khan

[To behold you at last shall come a sore Ghani Khan.
To behold you at last shall come a sore Ghani Khan.]

Prelude
(Electric Guitar Solo)

Yasir and Jawad is a duo band from Peshawar, and Wali is their vocalist. The song is in Pushto, and is taken from the poetrys of a famous pushto poet Ghani Khan.


To say about the lyrics. A lonely man introspects within and talks to himself as he sees a beautiful flower amidst the vast desert. He asks the flower,"Are you not disappointed at the fact that you are not getting what you deserve,you are made for those beautiful gardens,you could adorn the hair of beautiful princess, youcould be touched and cared by them."
But the flower replies "There may be thousands of flowers like me in those beautiful gardens,but here,its just me.I have that importance here like a miracle from the sky. I am a flamboyant flame of divine light,while there,I would be just a droplet in the sea. And so the flower tells him that he too should not feel bad being in a vast desert (loneliness). He tells him that he might belong to that different world of leisure but right now he happens to be a special entity of this desert and someone would come there, only to behold him.

The lyrics reminds me of the quote, " A drop of water in an ocean might not have an identity, but the same droplet, on a lotus petal, looks as precious as a pearl."

Moreover, as they say, the greatest need in the world is the need to be needed. If you think about it, all wealth and luxuries are useless, if we do not have someone who really needs us and truly loves us.. and the song goes around the same concept, the most beautiful place is where you are loved, where all others need you, where you are valued, because that is where you can be a happy person..

Very beautiful and motivating lyrics, and definitely takes us to a different world and leaves us mesmerized.

Hope you loved the song :)
