A great song by Abida Parveen, poetry of Waif Ali Wasif. There is an longer original version and a shorter remix version, both of which are available in the post.

mein nara e mastana mein shouqi e rindana
mein tashna kahan jaaon pee kar bhi kahan jana

mein souz e mohabbat hoon mein aik qayamat hoon
mein ashk e nadaamat hoon mein gouhar e yakdana

mein tahir e lahoti mein johar e malkooti
nasoot ne kab mujh ko is haal mein pehchana

mein shamm e farozan hoon mein aatish e larza hoon
mein sozish e hijraan hoon mein manzil e parwana

kiss yaad ka shera hoon kiss chashm ka darya hoon
khud toor ka jalwa hoon hai shakl qalbhana

mein husn e mujassim hoon mein gesu e barham hoon
mein phool hoon shabnam hoon mein jalwa e janana

mein wasif e bismil hoon mein ronaq e mehfil hoon
ik toota howa dil hoon mein shehar mein veerana

mein nara e mastana mein shouqi e rindana
mein tashna kahan jaaon pee kar bhi kahan jana

please tell me is there anywhere i can get the meaning or english translation of these lyrics,or if you could just post it.this song is intoxicating but i dont get it properly.especially the earliest few lines that are totally in persian.the lines before the start of nara mastana lines.

I found the English translation from another blog:

Main nara-e-mastana, main shouqi- e- rindana
Main tashna kahan jaaon, pee kar bhi kahan jana
Slogan of Inebriation am I, drunkard mercurialness am I
drink may I , may I not hardly does it make a difference
Main souz-e-mohabbat hoon, main aik qayamat hoon
Main ashk-e-nadaamat hoon, main gouhar-e-yakdana
A burning heat of love am I, the eventual
Tear of ignominy , a pearl unfound am I
Main tahir-e-lahooti, main johar-e-malkooti
Nasoot ne kab mujh ko is haal mein pehchana
Pern of heaven, the gem of empires and I
Hath when humanity known me so?
Main sham-e- farozan hoon, main aatish-e-larza hoon
Main sozish-e-hijraan hoon, main manzil-e-parwana
Illuminating light of the dusk, a raging flame am I
Mordancy of parting, Destination of Pyralid am I
Kis yaad ka sehera hoon, kis chashm ka darya hoon
Khud toor ka jalwa hoon, hai shakl qalbhana
A desert of thoughts, a river of which fall?
the biggest reality of the universe yet unrevealed
Main husn-e-mujassim hoon, main gesu-e-barham hoon
Main phool hoon shabnam hoon, main jalwa-e-janana
A frozen beauty am I, a ringlet in anger
A flower, the dew am I, beauty of the beloved
Main wasif-e-bismil hoon, main ronaq-e-mehfil hoon
Ik toota howa dil hoon, main shehar mein veerana
Wasif, slayed am I, heart of the crowd
A broken heart am I, a lonely in the city.
