wafaa karte karte
umr guzar gayi
par koi wafaadaar na mila,

bewafaa khud ne
khud ko
khud se jab kaha,

toh humne bhi
auron ki tarah
auron se wafaa karna chhor diya.

English translation:

I spent a lifetime being honest and fidel, but never found an apt reciprocation from them,

unaware that in doing so, i had slowly ended up losing myself,

but when that realisation unpleasantly dawned, i stopped, and finally chose myself over them.
