This is a classic sung by Ghulam Ali with beautiful lyrics penned by Pakistani poet Masroor Anwar. It is a beautiful example of every couplet very approporiately, ending with the same thought – of ‘yeh kahani phir sahi” (will tell you more about this story/situation, some other time)

Dil ki choton nay kabhi chain say rehnay na diya,
Jab chali sard hawa mainay tujhay yaad kiya,
Iska rona nahin kyon tumnay kiya dil barbaad,
Iska gham hai ki bahut der may barbaad kiya
Choton- hurt, heart-break Sard: Cold, Wintry

Humko kiskay gham nay maara, yeh kahaani phir sahi,
Kisnay tora dil hamara, yeh kahaani phir sahi

Dil kay lutnay ka sabab poocho na sabkay saamnay,
Naam aayega tumhara, yeh kahaani phir sahi
Sabab: Cause, Reason

Nafraton kay teer kha kar doston kay sheher mein,
Humnay kis kis ko pukara, yeh kahaani phir sahi

Kya batayein pyaar ki baazi-wafa ki raah mein,
Kaun jeeta kaun haara, yeh kahaani phir sahi
Baazi: Gamble, Game, Wager; Wafa: meeting a promise, faithful
