Lahore is also a famous song released on 13 December of 2017 by Guru Randhawa, an Indian singer. The singer uses the name of Lahore because it refers to a big city close to India, a cultural city of Pakistan. The song is kinda a tribute to some cities of the world mainly in India and Pakistan: Lahore, Bombay, Delhi, Punjab and London.
Basically the song is about the woman of his dreams, he doesn`t know where she comes from, he thinks she comes from Lahore because of the way she smiles, he thinks as well she maybe comes from Punjab a state of India because of the way she looks at him, he even thinks she comes from Bombay because the way she moves and her temperament is hot like Bombay’s summer, he thinks she comes from Delhi because her style is so different or even London because of the way she walks. Therefore he wants desperately to know where she comes from but he mainly believes she comes from Lahore, so that’s why the song has its name.
In this song he essentially describes the woman of his dreams; he is comparing a woman’s beauty with different places of the world and its characteristics.
