We Miss You! ❤️

Today is the birthday of the lovely, Nazia Hassan. The Queen of pop music, with the voice of a nightingale, she was a Pakistani singer-songwriter and started her career at the age of 10. She, along with her brother Zoheb Hassan went on to sell 60 million albums worldwide. She died of cancer in August’ 2000, at the age of 35. (source: wikipedia)

The brother and sister duo sang numerous songs together and Dosti (Friendship) is one of my favorites!

She was also a social worker and later left her singing career to focus on her charity work. She started an organization called BAN (Battle Against Narcotics).

“Not many people know that Nazia gave away all the money she earned as royalties from her albums  to charity and did not keep a single penny for herself.”  – Zoheb Hassan

This is like an ode to Nazia, a beautiful heartfelt ballad sung by her brother, along with Zoe. 

Happy Birthday Nazia! We miss you!

English Translation:

Dearest
Don’t let go of life
This priceless treasure of love
Must be guarded with every breath

Oh dearest
I will remain yours
Till the stars fall out of the sky
Till the earth fades away

I would give up my whole world to gain your love
This priceless love…
If I can have you by my side, what need have I of the rest of the universe?
The rest of the universe…
The world is nothing
Just say the word
And I would go with you to the moon itself

Dearest
Don’t let go of life
This priceless treasure of love
Must be guarded with every breath

Oh dearest
I will remain yours
Till the stars fall out of the sky
Till the earth fades away

My life is filled with the melody of your songs
Your songs…
And I’d happily walk through fire so long as I have you
When you’re far from me, I suffer a thousand sorrows
And when you’re with me, I have all the happiness I could possibly want

Dearest
Don’t let go of life
This priceless treasure of love
Must be guarded with every breath

Oh dearest
I will remain yours
Till the stars fall out of the sky
Till the earth fades away

Dearest (9x)

For Song Lyric Sunday
