Songs by Jivan

Is there not a place where we can go?

Is there not a place where we can go?

And talk sweetly and freely about that young boy?

Is there not a place where we can go?

~~~~~~~~~

Will I ever taste that cup

of nectar being passed

Passed freely between friends

Freely passed between friends

~~~~~~~~~

When will I see those pure devotees

With heaving chests and watering eyes?

And be transported along with them

Into the ocean of love of God

Into the ocean of love of God

~~~~~~~~~

Is there not a place where we can go?

Is there not a place where we can go?

Lovely Vrndaban

Cows graze on Goverdan, bright rainbows appear

Scents of fruits and Lotus flowers, draw cowherd boys near

Excitement stirs the air, the monkeys laugh and chatter

Peacocks dance within a trance, dark clouds begin to gather

Just beside the waterfalls, sweet maidens sing their songs

Of secrets told of hidden groves beyond

Deep within the forest of Vrndaban

~~~~~~~~~

Young girls laughing, and stringing flower leis

Experiencing heartfelt love, each and every day

Your forest is a reservoir of pleasure

Which holds Your loving, transcendental treasures

Oh, Vrndaban, such happiness You bring

When will I return to You again

Take me back to Your realm once again

Take me back to Lovely Vrndaban

~~~~~~~~~

How I miss You, my Vrndaban

Your beauty mystifies

Oh, Vrndaban, so Lovely

When will I see You and cry

~~~~~~~~~

Full Autumn moon shines upon the river

Soft grasses blow gently to the rythm

Goala plays His flute for all His friends to hear

Cows cry in response, with affection they draw near

From this sound, Radha’s eyes are filled with tears

She can taste the fullness of Love there

Coming only from the forest of Vrndaban

Take me back to Your realm once again

Take me back to my Lovely Vrndaban.
