“Mahi Aaja” by Momina Mustehsan and Asim Azhar in Coke Studio 11’s Episode 4

By Sana Haroon

The third and last track of Coke Studio 11’s fourth Episode “Mahi Aaja” sung by Momina Mustehsan and Asim Azhar was released on Friday (August 31, 2018).

In the previous episode of Coke Studio 11, Momina Mustehsan recorded Roye Roye along with Sahir Ali Bagga.

“Mahi Aaja” was previously composed by Asim Azhar when he was 17. The remake of track along with Momina Mustehsan is wonderful and beautifully composed. It has delivered warm and nostalgic soundscape of longing and emotions. The calming voice of Momina has made this song even softer and heartfelt. The pop electronic sound with the combination of new arrangements is a landscape of emotions and has left people awestruck.

Asim Azhar and Momina Mustehsan recorded their first duo “Nawazishien Karam” in Coke Studio 9.

“Mahi Aaja” Lyrics:

 

Teri ankhon main jo mainay dekha

What I saw in your eyes

 

Kia woh sach tha mujh ko bata?

Tell me, was it true?

 

Saray waday, sari khushian

All those promises, all that happiness

 

Teray bina sab lagay adhoora

Everything feels incomplete without you

 

Tu jo duur jayey

When you go far away

 

Dil mera ghabraye

My heart sinks

 

Hai dua yeh meri

This is my prayer

 

Pal pal hai yeh sada

This is what I wish for every moment

 

Tu jo duur jayey

When you go far away

 

Dil mera ghabraye

My heart sinks

 

Hai dua yeh meri

This is my prayer

 

Pal pal hai yeh sada

What I wish for every moment

 

Tay hun mahi aja horr na tarpa

Come back my love don’t prolong the agony

 

Tay hun mahi aja horr na tarsa

Come back my love don’t prolong the suffering

 

Tay hun mahi aja horr na tarpa

Come back my love don’t prolong the agony

 

Tay hun mahi aja horr na tarsa

Come back my love don’t prolong the suffering

 

Hun aja meray kol

Come close to me now

 

And I’ll never let you go

 

 

Hun aja meray kol

Come close to me now

 

Ni aja ni aja ni aja

Come come come

 

And I’ll never let you go

 

Tera sath jo ho mil jaye dunya

If I’m with you, I have the world

 

Ghum na koi jo ishq ho poora

There is no sadness if I have love

 

Nindiya na aye

I can’t sleep

 

Dil mera ghabraye

My heart sinks

 

Hai dua yeh meri

This is my prayer

 

Pal pal hai yeh sada

What I wish for every moment

 

Nindia na aye

I can’t sleep

 

Meri jaan ghabraye

My soul sinks

 

Hai dua yeh meri

This is my prayer

 

Pal pal hai yeh sada

What I wish for every moment

 

Tay hun mahi aja horr na tarpa

Come back my love don’t prolong the agony

 

Tay hun mahi aja horr na tarsa

Come back my love don’t prolong the suffering

 

 Tay hun mahi aja horr na tarpa

Come back my love don’t prolong the agony

 

Tay hun mahi aja horr na tarsa

Come back my love don’t prolong the suffering

 

Hun aja meray kol

Come close to me now

 

Ni aja ni aja ni aja

Come come come

 

And I’ll never let you go

 

Hun aja meray kol

Come close to me now

 

And I’ll never let you go

 

Sapnay jo teray saath saray tootay

All my dreams with you were shattered

 

Armaan jo dil main thay woh saray chootay

All of my heart’s desires were lost

 

Kyon sirf ham say hi o-jana roothay

Why withdraw just from me, love

 

Armaan jo dil main thay woh saray chootay

All of my heart’s desires were lost

 

Tay hun mahi aja horr na tarpa

Come back my love don’t prolong the agony

 

Tay hun mahi aja horr na tarsa

Come back my love don’t prolong the suffering

 

Tay hun mahi aja horr na tarpa

Come back my love don’t prolong the agony

 

Tay hun mahi aja horr na tarsa

Come back my love don’t prolong the suffering

 

Hun aja meray kol

Come close to me now

 

 And I’ll never let you go

 

Hun aja meray kol

Come close to me now

 

Ni aja ni aja ni aja

Come come come

 

And I’ll never let you go

 

Aja aja aja aja aja aja

Come come come come come come

 

Aja aja aja aja aja aja

Come come come come come come

 

Tay hun mahi aja horr na tarpa

Come back my love don’t prolong the agony

 

Tay hun mahi aja horr na tarsa

Come back my love don’t prolong the suffering

 

Tay hun mahi aja aja aja aja

Come back my love, come come come

 

Tay hun mahi aja aja aja aja

Come back my love, come come come

 

horr na tarsa

Don’t prolong the suffering

Tay hun mahi aja horr na tarpa

Come back my love don’t prolong the agony

 

Tay hun mahi aja

Come back my love

 

Horr na tarsa

Don’t prolong the suffering
