11 August 2017 | 6:00 min

A modern day tale of young love, ‘Muntazir’ features Momina Mustehsan and Danyal Zafar on a track that reflects the journey of Strings going back to their musical roots. The song gives us an energetic, decadent insight into the musicality of desire. The longing in the lyrics and vocals are further embellished by the respite of fluidity and delay of the guitar. Strings manages to transport the listener to a warm, nostalgic soundscape of longing. Backed by strong basslines & a tight rhythm section, Danyal Zafar revs up a lifting guitar solo in his debut performance alongside Momina Mustehsan’s soulful vocal performance. A pop-rock standard that transcends time, ‘Muntazir’ is a sweet ditty that juxtaposes the boldness of declaring love and the fragility of the process of unveiling your heart.

  1. Muntazir Song Lyrics

     

    main yahaan hoon muntazir
    I am here, waiting for you

     

    tum wahaan ho be-khabar
    You are there, unaware of this

     

    main yahaan hoon muntazir
    I am here, waiting for you

     

    tum wahaan ho be-khabar
    You are there, unaware of this

     

    aur halke halke se man chaahe
    And softly but steadily, my heart prays

     

    maanga jis ko wuh mil jaaye
    That the one I asked for should become mine

     

    yih raat tham jaaye sau saal ko
    That this night should stand still for a hundred years

     

    aur ek ho jaaen ham tum
    And the two of us should become united

     

    main yahaan hoon muntazir
    I am here, waiting for you

     

    tum wahaan ho be-khabar
    You are there, unaware of this

     

    aur halke halke se man chaahe
    And softly but steadily, my heart prays

     

    maanga jis ko wuh mil jaaye
    That the one I asked for should become mine

     

    yih raat tham jaaye sau saal ko
    That this night should stand still for a hundred years

     

    aur ek ho jaaen ham tum
    And the two of us should become united

     

    door se aati hain pariyaan
    Fairies come from afar

     

    sunaati hain ik kahaani mujhe baar baar
    And tell me a story again and again

     

    tum yahaan pih magar
    You are here, but

     

    wuh wahaan pih kare tera intizaar
    He waits for you over there

     

    ab maano naheen haar
    Now don’t give up hope

     

    socho nah, chal paṛo
    Don’t pause to think, just go

     

    jaao nah, nah ḍaro
    Go to her, have no fear

     

    jaante ho tum us ke dil ka raaz
    You already know her heart’s secret

     

    shaayad ghabraayegi, wuh nah kah paaye gi
    Maybe she will feel shy, and hesitate to voice her feelings

     

    tum nah ḍarna, nah peeche haṭna
    But you should have no fear, you shouldn’t draw back

     

    kah de nah dil ki baat
    Just say to her what’s in your heart!

     

    main yahaan hoon muntazir
    I am here, waiting for you

     

    tum wahaan ho be-khabar
    You are there, unaware of this

     

    aur halke halke se man chaahe
    And softly but steadily, my heart prays

     

    maanga jis ko wuh mil jaaye
    That the one I asked for should become mine

     

    yih raat tham jaaye sau saal ko
    That this night should stand still for a hundred years

     

    aur ek ho jaaen ham tum
    And the two of us should become united

     

    yih raat tham jaaye sau saal ko
    That this night should stand still for a hundred years

     

    aur ek ho jaaen ham tum
    And the two of us should become united
