Khali Dil Nahin Jaan Vhi... Ishq Di Gali Vich

It was on Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge 2007 when Junaid Sheikh from Karachi, Pakistan sang this song I heard it for the first time. Ever since then I can't stop humming it and listening to it again and again. I have to admit that I like Junaid's version much better than the original just because it's a male solo instead of a duet like in original song but at the same time the voice of Junaid is much more appealing for some reason than the voice of Hans Raj Hans. The song itself is truely beautiful because of the composition by none other than Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Anand Bakshi's lyrics are also nice with a bit of that Punjabi touch to it. Wish the original was also a male solo or rather... if Junaid had sung the whole song instead of a single stanza. I've become a fan of this kid's singing now.

ishq hai paani ka ek katra
katre mein toofan
ek haath mein apna dil rakh le
ek haath mein rakh le jaan

khali dil nahin jaan vhi yeh mangta (2)
ishq di gali vich koi koi langda (2)

khali dil nahin jaan vhi yeh mangta (2)
ishq di gali vich koi koi langda (2)

(jogiyo ke pichhe jaise jog lag jaata hai
premiyon ko prem wala rog lag jata hai) (2)
lag bachaaye daaman log lag jata hai (2)
dil pe aashiqon ke nishane se rangda (2) haaye
ishq di gali vich koi koi langda (2)

khali dil nahin jaan vhi yeh mangta (2)
ishq di gali vich koi koi langda (2)

(dushman hai dil ka aisa man ka yeh meet hai
jag se nirali iss khel ki reet hai) (2)
jeet mein haar hai haar mein jeet hai (2)
ishq ishq hai maidane nahin jang da (2) haaye
ishq di gali vich koi koi langda (2)

naam hai deewaana dooja naam na koyi (2)
pyaar ke jaisa badnaam nahin koyi (2)
ishq se bada ilzaam nahin koyi (2)
ishq aashiqaano sooliyon pe tangda (2) haaye
ishq di gali vich koi koi langda (2)

khali dil nahin jaan vhi yeh mangta (2) haaye
ishq di gali vich koi koi langda (2)

khali dil nahin jaan vhi yeh mangta (2)
ishq di gali vich koi koi langda (2)

Hi,

Exactly my thoughts as well. I feel for Junaid and this song after watching Junaid's performance on srgmp. I did no tknow this song before then.

hey, I'm desperately looking for an English translation of this song, as it comes up in the background of a video I'm working on. Most importantly I'm trying to figure out the chorus - the Khali dil line, and then 'ishq di gali vich koi koi langda.' Do you know where I could find a translation?

Thanks so much.

I do not agree at all that Junaid Sang better than Hans Raj Hans. you cannot compare a singer from no where with an Ustad like Hans Raj Hans. Junaid is a good singer but this song need much more than what he has, listen to his pronounciation man no where near Punjabi.
