Bengali lyric

মাটির   বুকের মাঝে বন্দী যে জল মিলিয়ে থাকে
মাটি     পায় না, পায় না, মাটি পায় না তাকে ॥
কবে    কাটিয়ে বাঁধন পালিয়ে যখন যায় সে দূরে
                        আকাশপুরে গো,	
তখন   কাজল মেঘের সজল ছায়া শূন্যে আঁকে,
                        সুদূর     শূন্যে আঁকে—
মাটি     পায় না, পায় না, মাটি পায় না তাকে ॥
শেষে   বজ্র তারে বাজায় ব্যথা বহ্নিজ্বালায়,
          ঝঞ্ঝা তারে দিগ্বিদিকে কাঁদিয়ে চালায় ।
তখন   কাছের ধন যে দূরের থেকে কাছে আসে
                        বুকের পাশে গো,
তখন   চোখের জলে নামে সে যে চোখের জলের ডাকে,
                        আকুল    চোখের জলের ডাকে—
মাটি     পায় রে, পায় রে, মাটি পায় রে তাকে ॥

English lyric of the song

Matir buker majhe bondi je jal miliye thake
Mati pai na pai na mati pai na take
Kabe katiye badhon paliye jakhon jai se dure
Akashpure go
Takhon kalo megher sajol chaya sunne aake
Sudur sunne aake
Mati pai na pai na mati pai na take//
Seshe bajro tare bajai byatha banhijalai
Jhanja tare digbidike kadiye chalai
Takhon kacher dhan je durer theke kache ase
Buker pase go
Takhon chokher jale name se je chokher jaler dake
Akul chokher jale dake -
Mati pai na pai na mati pai na take

English translation of the song

Amidst the heart of Earth it stays
Water, for which the Earth craves…
  In vain, 
 
When breaking the bondage it flies off
To high up in the azure canvas of the sky
Moulds into rain-clouds – paints a dark silhouette there
  Faraway from the Earth
Still the Earth waits for it … in vain, 
 
At last hurt by the fiery stroke of Thunder
Thrown into plunder by storm and hails
It finds its way back close to the core
Like tears, down it pours
Unto the bosom of the Earth – the long awaiting soul
Soil and water – at last mingled – to eternal conjugation.
- Translated by Tuhin Mukherjee
