lyrics

Verse 1
Bolte Paro Ki-Can you tell me
Kemone shoichi-How I've withstood it
obohela, sharabela, eto jala-with this turmoil,all the time,all this worry
Nirobei shoichi-Withstood it without complaint

Shunte paro ki-Can you hear
ei shurero monjori-the dischord of this melody
Sharbohara,Shopno chara,dukhe jara-Without dreams, those with sadness
tomare bhar boichi-have borne your burden


Chorus 1,2,3
Shonabondhu tomar lagiya-"Golden friend"/lover of mine, for you
Ontor gelo Joliya-My soul is burnt
Ami eka keno boshe achi-Why am I sitting here alone
Choker jole bhalobashi-With my love flowing in the water of my eyes

Verse 2
Mone jodi thake prem-If there is love inside
Jaina bhola kichutei-it is impossible to forget
khone khone pore mone-you're reminded around every corner
emoni jala-of this pain
behishebi joto jed-of this limitless anger
jome holo kalo meg-stored in a black cloud
obhimane,boroshone,katena bela-insultingly,the time doesnt pass


Aachole muchiya jol-Wiping tears with the corner of my sari
bondhu tahar pothe chol-my friend went on his way
shopne joto kolahol-dreams that were abundant
choker jole tolomol-were washed askance by the water of my eyes
