This song is inspired by the verses of poet Hiranya Ranjan Upadhyaya. The lyrics for this song however are written by his mother. It is a dark, brooding song about longing for someone you love. About closing your eyes, thinking of the one you love and unbeknownst to you, the tears start to flow. The alaap is performed on flamenco guitar.

Here's the lyrics of this song:

 

 

Phir tere naam ne betaab kiya

Phir tere khayal ne rula diya

Bereham chahat ne badhkar

Phir vahi gila kiya.

 

Phir tere naam ne betaab kiya

Phir tere khayal ne rula diya

Bereham chahat ne badhkar

Phir vahi gila kiya.

 

Phir tere naam ne betaab kiya

Phir tere khayal ne rula diya

Bereham chahat ne badhkar

Phir vahi gila kiya.

 

Phir tere naam ne betaab kiya

Phir tere khayal ne rula diya

Bereham chahat ne badhkar

Phir vahi gila kiya.

 

Phir tere naam ne betaab kiya

Phir tere khayal ne rula diya

Bereham chahat ne badhkar

Phir vahi gila kiya.

 

Phir tere naam ne betaab kiya

Tere naam ne betaab kiya

Phir tere khayal ne rula diya

Tere khayal ne rula diya
