Hindi, Urdu: Duub ke ho jaauuN paar

I understand that "paar honaa" and "paar ho jaana" mean "to make it through, to get to the other end, (figuratively) to survive something".
Therefore, in the following stanza, what is the lover praying for, exactly?
To drown in her eyes, and then survive, or simply to succeed in drowning?

terii nazroN ne dil kaa kiyaa jo hashr
asar yah huaa
ab in meN hii Duub ke
ho jaauuN paar yahii hai duaa

[it belongs to the song "Ajab Si", also known as "Ankhom Mein Teri Ajab Si", from the Indian movie "Om Shanti Om"]
