Haman Hain Ishq Mastaana

A classic Kabir song, ‘Haman hain’ describes his state of utter freedom and aloofness from attachments. He has no further requirements from the world. He doesn’t need to keep it happy anymore or be in bed with it anymore. He has banished duality from his heart. Composed by Bindhumalini & Vedanth. See more at www.ishqfakiri.com

Haman hain ishq mastaana
Haman ko hoshiyaari kya?
Rahein aazaad ya jag se
Haman duniya se yaari kya?

Jo bichhude hain piyaare se
Bhatakte dar badar phirte
Hamaara yaar hai ham mein
Haman ko intezaari kya?

Na pal bichhude piya ham se
Na ham bichhude piyaare se
Unhi se neh laagi hai
Haman ko beqaraari kya?

Kabira ishq ka maada
Dui ko door kar dil se
Jo chalna raah naazuk hai
Haman sir bojh bhaari kya?

I’m Drunk on Love

I’m drunk on love
Why bother with cleverness anymore?
Free of worldliness
Why be in bed with the world anymore?

They wander who are lost
Separated from the beloved
My beloved dwells in me
I’m not waiting anymore

Not once did I lose sight of him
Not once did he leave my side
My heart’s strings are tied to him
I’m not restless anymore

Kabir, get drunk on love
Rid the heart of duality
Such a delicate path to tread
Why lug a heavy load anymore?
