Beautiful songs

When I like a song, I listen to it over and over again until I get tired of it. But songs like ‘maula mere maula’, ‘tohse naina’, ‘madari’ and ‘madno’ are those few that I never get tired of listening to. These are the songs that have ‘sufi’ element to them i.e, love being above all, love being everything. I feel that ‘urdu’ is a such a beautiful language, that sounds beautiful and hits you hard and can convey deeper emotions easily. Many popular hindi songs seem to have urdu words in them. Coincidence? l think not. I think urdu just elevates a song to a new level. But I am no expert. I can just about understand it.

With respect to songs, I am more of words and feelings person. Song I am currently listening.

Jaaveda zindagi

Tohse naina laage(My eyes are captivated by you)
Tohse naina laage

Tohse naina laage piya saaware (My eyes are captivated by you, O my spiritual lover)
Nahin bas me ab yeh jiya saaware  (My heart is not in my control now, O my spiritual lover)
Tohse naina laage piya saaware
Nahin bas me ab yeh jiya saaware

Mohabbat to ek jaaveda zindagi hai (Love is one spiritual life.) Mohabbat to ek jaaveda zindagi hai  Tohse naina laage mili roshni  (My eyes are captivated by you, I got light)
Tohse man jo laaga mili zindagi  (My heart is captivated by you, I got life)

Tohse naina laage mili roshni 
Tohse man jo laaga mili zindagi 

Mohabbat to ek jaaveda zindagi hai (Love is one spiritual life). Mohabbat to ek jaaveda zindagi hai 

Mohabbat ki hai daastaan zindagi  (Life is the tale of love)
Mohabbat na ho toh kaha zindagi  (If love is not there, there cannot be life) Mohabbat ki hai daastaan zindagi Mohabbat na ho toh kaha zindagi  Mohabbat to ek jaaveda zindagi hai  Mohabbat to ek jaaveda zindagi hai 
Tohse naina laage

Shama ko pigalne ka armaan kyun hai? (Why the light desires to melt?)
Patange ko jalne ka armaan kyun hai? (Why the light moth desires to burn?)

Isi shawq ka intehaan zindagi hai (The passion of this hobby is life.)
Isi shawq ka intehaan zindagi hai 

Mohabbat jise baksh de zindagani  (Love which spares his/her life)
Nahi maut par khatm uski kahaani  (His/her story doesn’t end on death)

Kaise jiya jaaye (how to live)
Kaise jiya jaaye ishq bin ( how to live without love)
Kaise jiya jaaye kaise jiya jaaye ishq bin

Nahin koi insaan mohabbat se khaali (No human is empty of love)
Har ek ruh pyaasi, har ek dil sawaali (Each and every soul is thirsty, each and every heart is curious)
Mohabbat jahaan hai wahaan zindagi hai (Where there is love there is life) Mohabbat na ho toh kahaan zindagi hai (If love is not there, there cannot be life)

Tohse naina laage mili roshni
Tohse man jo laaga mili zindagi
Tohse naina laage mili roshni
Tohse man jo laaga mili zindagi Mohabbat jise baksh de zindagani Nahi maut par khatm uski kahaani
