Ishq Bina Lyrics
shq bina kya jeena -2
Gud se meetha ishq ishq
Imli se khatta ishq ishq
Vaada ya pakka ishq ishq
Dhaaga ye kachcha ishq ishq
Ishq bina kya marna yaara
Ishq bina kya jeena
Is it worth dying without having loved? Is it worth living without love? Love is sweeter than sugar and is much sour than tamarind.
It is a promise well kept and at times, a thread that isn't strong enough and breaks. There is no loving or dying without having experienced love.
Lyricist, Anand Bakshi describes the two extremes of love. How it can be fragile as well as strong?
The protagonist firmly believes in the necessity of love in life and considers it futile to live or die without it.
WORD- Gud- Jaggery/Sugar, Imli - Tamarind, Vaada - Promise, Ishq - Love.
In donon ke beech mein sab hai -2
Ek nahin sau baatein karlo
Sau baaton ka ek matlab hai
Rab sab se sona ishq ishq
Rabse bhi sona ishq ishq -2
As I look down, there is love below me and above me, resides God. In between these two, exists everything.
If not one, engage in a hundred conversations. But all of them mean just one thing - God is prettier than anything in this world but love is prettier than God himself.
FACT - AR Rahman makes use of the Manjeera on Ishq Bina. Used a lot in devotional music, ironically this instrument is called the Taal which translates to Clap.
Love is not a diamond. Nor is it an emerald. It is simply a desire.
The protagonist states that love is an abstract object (an emotion) that projects the deepest desires of the heart and cannot be compared to any material possession.
WORD- Panna- Emerald; Tamanna- Desire.
Ye ishq hai kya sabko pata
Ye prem nagar anjaan dagar
Saajan ka ghar ka kisko khabar
Chhoti si umar ye lamba safar
Ye ishq hai kya ye kisko pata
Ye dard hai ya dardon ki dava
Ye koi sanam ya aap khuda -2
Who knows what love is? But this emotion called called love is known to all. This city of love has unknown paths and is home to several strangers.
Who knows about beloved's house? Life is short but the journey is long. Love is the pain and the cure to the pain. It is our beloved or maybe God himself.
Using contradictory explanations for love, lyricist, Anand Bakshi weaves an enigma around this emotion.
WORD- Dagar- Path; Safar- Journey, Anjaan - Strangers.
Ishq bina kya jeena
Tumne ishq ka naam suna hai
Humne ishq kiya hai
Phoolon ka gulshan ishq ishq
Kaaton ka daaman ishq ishq -2
Is it worth dying without love? Is it worth living without love? You've heard the name of love but I have loved. Love is like a rose garden and a veil of thorns.
WORD- Gulshan - Rose Garden, Daaman - Veil.
