The music for this song came out of a very old jam session that the band happened to record. Much later when these recordings were being reviewed Ali Noor discovered that hidden within that session was what is now called Tum Hans Diye. The song itself is based upon women in our society who have repressed their own self and are without a voice, and most times don't even realize it!

The Video

This video was really the first that the band did in any conscious manner. The entire video has been shot in a small room full of tinsel on the walls and also hanging from the ceiling, the floor was lined with paper shreds. In the video the directors, Usman Zaidi and Ali Jafri, called in an all-girl cast who were asked to “just act natural”. Most of the time they didn't even know when the camera was on!


Lyrics

Bolo Na Dil Kholo Na
Apno Se Moo Moro Na
Tera Hai Jo Sapna
Us Sapnay Ko Toro Na

Jeena Hai Jin Rungon Mein
Un Rangon Ko Choro Na
Kanton Kay Is Chaman Mein
Sitaron Key Lagan Mein

Nahin Rona Yara Na Rona
Suno Na Dil Key Pukar
Tum Huns Na Huns Ke Jhoom
Meray Dholna Ab Aaye Bahaar

Lagay Jug Soona
Tera Dil Mane Na Haar

Bolo Na. Tum Dekho Na
Is Jeevan Ko Dhoondo Na
Jana Hai Jin Raahon Per
Un Raahon Ko Choro Na

Jaga Hai Ab Dil Tera
Is Dil Ko Tum Roko Na

Kanton Kay Is Chaman Mein
Sitaron Key Lagan Mein

Nahin Rona Yara Na Rona
Suno Na Dil Key Pukar
Tum Huns Na Huns Ke Jhoom
Meray Dholna Ab Aaye Bahaar

Lagay Jug Soona
Tera Dil Mane Na Haar

Bolo Na Dil Kholo Na
Apno Se Moo Moro Na
Tera Hai Jo Sapna
Us Sapnay Ko Toro Na

Nahin Rona Yara Na Rona
Suno Na Dil Key Pukar
Tum Huns Na Huns Ke Jhoom
Meray Dholna Ab Aaye Bahaar

Lagay Jug Sooona
Tera Dil Mane Na Haar

Sun Lay Pukar

Nahin Rona Yara Na Rona
Suno Na Dil Key Pukar
Tum Huns Na Huns Ke Jhoom
Meray Dholna Ab Aaye Bahaar

Lagay Jug Sooona
Tera Dil Mane Na Haar
