The musical interludes are not memorable. The sheer melody in this song is what captivates you. Lyrics is anoher story altogether - bordering on metaphysical love. Has to be What else can you have when the movie has a man-loves-ghost storyline. I have spent endless minutes admiring the genius of Gulzar who came up with "Jaise khushboo nazar se chhoo jaaye! Saans lete hain jis tarah saaye! "

Surmayii shyaam is tharah aaye
Saans lete hai jis tarah saaye (Surmayii)
Koi aahat nahin badan ki kahin
Phir bhi lagthaa hai thu yahin hai kahin
Waqt aaya sunaayi detaa hai
Tera saayaa dikhaayi detaa hai
Jaise khushboo nazar se chhoo jaaye!
Saans lete hain jis tarah saaye!(Surmayii)
Din ka jo bhi pehal guzartha hai
Koi ehasaan saa utharthaa hai
Waqt ke paanw dekhthaa hun mem
Roz yeh chaal dekhthaa hun mem
Haaye jaise koi bahaar aaye
Saans lete hai jis tarah saaye (Surmayii).
