ARTIST Noori & Saieen Zahoor
SONG Aik Alif
PERFORMED AT Coke Studio Season 2 Episode 1 "Individuality"
Submitted by Artemiz

Saieen zahoor:

pur pur ilm te fazal hoyo
Ve kadi apne aap nu parya nai!

bajh bajh varnaye.mandar-e-maseet e
Va kadi mann apne vich varya nai..

Larna Roz!...Shaitaan de naal
Ve kadi nafs apne naal larya nai!!

Bulleh shah..asmaani udhiyaan phiro nai
Ve jera ghar betha..unhoun phariya nai

............

Bas kari oh yaar ilmo
bas kari oh yaaar.
Bas kari oh yaar ilmo..
bas kari oh yaar

Aik Alif!! tere Darkar.
Aik alif tere Darkaar HAQ!

Bas kari oh yaar ilmo
bas kari oh yaar

Allah saaiyaan
Allah saaiyaan
Allah saaiyaan
Allah saaiyaan

...................

Ali noor:

niiiii.. mein.
Jaana...
nii mein jaana
jaana...
jogi de naal
ni mein jana
ni mein janaa..
JOGI de naal..
ni mein jana...
Jogi de...naal..

Ali hamza:

Jo na jaane
Haq ki taaqat
JO na jaane
Haq ki taaqat
rab na deve
usko himmat
rab na deve
usko himmat

Hum mann ke dariya mein doobay
Hum mann ke dariya mein doobay
Kaisi nayya, kya manjhdhaar; haq

Bas kari oh yaar ilmo
Bas kari oh yaar
bas kari oh yaar ilmo
bas kari oh yaar

Allah saaiyaan.. (continues repetitively)]

I'm not afraid to take a stand
Everybody come take my hand
We'll walk this road together, through the storm
Whatever weather, cold or warm
Just let you know that, you're not alone
Holla if you feel that you've been down the same road

Thank you for posting the lyrics.

Coke Studio is fantastic, and this performance was wonderful.

Can anyone provide the meaning in English?

Faizy .. the lyrics u put up are mostly wrong! punjabi not ur strong point?..:p koi gal nai.


i'll have a go translating this..       This song is..beautiful! this track is all about.. how we forget to dwell in ourselves..and how we get caught up..in learning..more about our surroundings than our own hearts.. and what we..need most..    which in this song is.. devotion. something which has become non existent in many of our lives.

ENGLISH TRANSLATION

saieen zahoor:

You read, studied gained knowledge
Yet you have never read yourself

You enter temples and mosques
Yet you've never entered your own heart

Everyday you fight satan  (demons)
Yet never squabbled with yourself (your inner demons)

Bulleh shah. Dont catch the flying creatures
One cant catch sitting at home.

stop dwelling in the knowledge (of the world)
one Alif(allah) is all you need


Ali noor:
Im going along
Im going along
with the devotional one

Ali hamza:

One who doesnt know
The strength of truth
God wont give them the strength
We are drowning in our own selves
There are no boats, nor storms; only truth

Haq! (truth)
stop dwelling in the knowledge..   (of the world as in look into yourself more often...)
Allah..saiyaan...           "saiyaan" means..   beloved.

Thanks Artemiz! I used that, and some other info, to create English captions. View the video with captions at this link:

Aik Alif by Saieen Zahoor and Noori (with Punjabi and English captions)
http://www.overstream.net/view.php?oid=ikmwe5ree7t3


I still have a few questions. I have: Nii mein jaana (I'm going along), Jogi de naal (With the devotional one). But I'm not sure what to show for "Nii mein" (I'm going?), and "Janna" (People?), when spoken separately.

HELP, I STILL HAVE NOTHING FOR: Kaisi maiyaa kya manzidaa, haq (except that haq=truth).

Here are the lines I used so far:

PUNJABI LYRICS + ENGLISH TRANSLATION

(Saieen Zahoor)
Pur pur ilm te fazal hoyo
You read to become all knowledgable
Ve kadi apne aap nu parya nai
But you never read yourself
bajh bajh varnaye mandar-e-maseeti
You run to enter your mosques and temples
Va kadi mann apne vich varya nai
But you never entered your own heart
Larna Roooz
Everyday
Shaitaan de naal
You fight satan
De kaday sapnay naal larya naai
But you never fight yourself
Bulleh Shah asmaani udhiyaan phiro naai
Bulleh Shah, you try grabbing that which is in the sky
Ve jera ghar betha unhoun phariya naai
But you never get hold of what's inside your own house
Bas ik karee oh yaar ilumu
Stop seeking this knowledge (of the world) my friend
Bas ik karee oh yaar ilumu
Stop this seeking my friend
Aik alif tere darker
Only an alif (beginning or oneness) is what you need
Aik alif tere darker; haq
Only an alif (beginning or oneness) is what you need; truth
Allah saieenya
God beloved

(Ali Noor begins)
Nii mein jaana
I'm going along
Jogi de naal
With the devotional one

(Ali Hamza begins)
Jo na janay
One who doesn't know...
Haq ki taqat
The strength of truth
Raba na deway us ko hemat
God won't give them the strength
Amman ke darya mein dobay
May he dip in the river of peace
Kaisi maiyaa kya manzidaa; haq
...; truth

Made some updates to the captions including the missing line, changing two lines near the end as follows:

Hum mann ke dariya mein doobay
We are drowning in our own selves
Kaisi nayya, kya manjhdhaar; haq
There are no boats, nor storms; only truth

Thank You Dalesund for the completing the correct lyrics :)

Nii mein means (I'm) and Jaana means (going)
I'm not afraid to take a stand
Everybody come take my hand
We'll walk this road together, through the storm
Whatever weather, cold or warm
Just let you know that, you're not alone
Holla if you feel that you've been down the same road
