Tumko dekha to ye khayaal aaya Lyrics Translation

This beautiful Ghazal sung by Jagjit Singh is translated very literally here, as our motive is to reach those who cannot understand the meaning of these words. The explanation part is kept almost completely out here.

Movie: Saath Saath (1982)
Music: Kuldeep Singh
Lyrics: Javed Akhtar
Singer: Jagjit Singh, Chitra Singh

tum ko dekha to ye khayaal aaya
zindagi dhoop tum ghana saaya

When I saw you, this thought came to me
Life is strong sun and you're soothing shade

aaj phir dil ne ek tamanna ki
aaj phir dil ko humne samjhaaya

Today, once again my heart wished for something
Today once again I pacified my heart..

tum chale jaaoge to sochenge
humne kya khoya humne kya paaya

When you leave, I'll think..
What I lost, and what I gained..

hum jise gunguna nahin sakte
waqt ne aisa geet kyoon gaaya

One, that I cannot hum,
Why did fate sing such a song?
[as in, why is the fate going completely against me]
