The sharp sting of separation

takes the breath away

Light the ember of love.

Set the heavens are...

...O Mirzya

This is the aHey of the blacksmiths

Their homes are here

The alley glows with eternal fire

When hot iron melts here...

. . . golden embers float high

The furnace embers take wing

Like Time unfurng moments

from its st

Then the warrior Mirza always

returns here

The b/acksmiths retells the tale

of his love for Sahiba

When their story is told in this alley

The sound of hooves ngers on

These valleys of milky mist

Centuries oat through here

Love never dies, O Mirzya

Forever lives the beloved Sahiba

Others are armed with spears

Mirza with bow and arrow

There he comes, My Mirza

fearless Hke a Hon

O Ivlirzya

Deep is the pain of separation

Life is a burning re

Light the embers of love

O Mirzya

Speak up! So the sun melts

Let re seedlings be born

to hear your legend...

It happens.

In love it happens.

One suffers the hurt...

...while the other bleeds.

It happens

It happens

One suffers the hurt...

...whi/e the other bleeds

In love it happens

In love it happens

In passion

It happens

The sun singes the sky

And the earth is scarred

In love it happens

The verdict of Time

did not favour love

Bound in chains the {over

is fed away

In love

Everything was tried

Every oil lamp lled

Everything was tried

Every oil lamp lled

Unless a spark strikes...

...no Damp can burn

The colour of henna comes alive

Only when fully crushed

The colour of henna comes alive

Only when fully crushed

It happens

I t often happens in love

In love

One suffers the hurt

while the other bleeds

Sometimes it so happens...

. . . friends are separated,

but unspoken memories...

...whisper seny as

the lovers part

Lakes dry up,

but the cracks written into the soil remain

Those unspoken memories

Forever baked by the hot sun

Sometimes it so happens

The sun singes the sky

And the earth is scarred

It happens in love

It happens
