Bengali lyric

শুধু          যাওয়া আসা, শুধু স্রোতে ভাসা,
শুধু          আলো-আঁধারে কাঁদা-হাসা ॥
শুধু          দেখা পাওয়া, শুধু ছুঁয়ে যাওয়া,
শুধু          দূরে যেতে যেতে কেঁদে চাওয়া,
শুধু          নব দুরাশায় আগে চ'লে যায়—
              পিছে ফেলে যায় মিছে আশা ॥	
              অশেষ বাসনা লয়ে ভাঙা বল,
              প্রাণপণ কাজে পায় ভাঙা ফল,
              ভাঙা তরী ধ'রে ভাসে পারাবারে,
              ভাব কেঁদে মরে— ভাঙা ভাষা ।
              হৃদয়ে হৃদয়ে আধো পরিচয়,
              আধখানি কথা সাঙ্গ নাহি হয়,
              লাজে ভয়ে ত্রাসে আধো-বিশ্বাসে
              শুধু আধখানি ভালোবাসা ॥

English lyric of the song

Shudhu jaawa aasa shudhu srote bhaasa,
Shudhu aalo-aandhare knaada-haasa.
Shudhu dekha paawa shudhu chhnuye jaawa.
Shudhu dure jete jete knede chaawa,
Shudhu nabo durashay aage chole jaay -
       Pichhe phele jaay michhe aasha.
       Osheso baasona loye bhaanga bol,
       Praanpon kaaje paay bhaanga phol,
       Bhaanga tori dhore bhaase paarabaare,
       Bhaabo knede more - bhaanga bhaasa.
       Hridoye hridoye aadho porichoy,
       Aadhkhani kotha saango naahi hoy,
       Laaje bhoye traase aadho bishwase
       Shudhu aadhkhani bhalobaasa.

English translation of the song

Only this floating back and forth in tides
Only this cycle of light-dark, crying-laughing
Only this brief sight and touch.
Only that heart-wrenching longing.
Only in new strange desires, I keep going.
Leaving behind unfulfilled hopes
Endless desires, with limited strength
I fail  to accomplish even in my best attempts.
Floating in the ocean holding the broken boat
Feelings are dying a death without finding its words
The hearts known each other little
Neither do they get to speak those unspoken words
In shyness, fear, tremor and disbelief
The love remains unfulfilled.
- Translated by Sumita Chakraborty
