Here are the words as I can hear them (I am native Bengali): Bhulbona ar shohojete ` Shei praan e mon uthbe mete Mrittu majhe dhaka ache je ontor he praan Bajre tomar baje bashi She ki shohoj gaan Shei shurete jagbo ami (Repeat 3X) dao more shei gaan Shei jhor jeno shoi anonde Chittobinar taare Shotto-shindu dosh digonto Nachao je jhonkare! Bajre tomar baje bashi She ki shohoj gaan Shei shurete jagbo ami (Repeat 3X) My translation: I will never again easily forget That life-energy my mind lifts to / into the soul where the mind can reach to In the midst of death, there is a veil/ there is hidden The knowingness of infinite life / something that rises, that is the infinite power of life. It plays, your flute plays, It is such an easy song. I will/want to, awaken to Your song. At the time of death, Give me at that time, that which is Your song. That force/will/storm, may it be surrounded in joy/bliss/peace Without thoughts/mind, among the stars From over 7 oceans and 10 sides (all sides of the world) You make dance in such melody!
I will not easily forget The life that stirs in my soul Hidden amidst Death That infinite Life I hear you in the thunder A simple tune A tune to which I will arise (3x) And in that storm of happiness As your music plays in your mind The whole wide world Dances to your rhythm "The signer is Palbasha Siddique, a 17 year old Bengali girl who lives in Minnesota. She sang once on a public access radio station and they put it online. Matt's wife found the clip and they contacted her and asked her to sing this." ~~What a perfect confluence of lyric, voice, and video. They combine to make me very happy :)
Simply, and utterly enchanting.
I know everyone, EVERYONE has given this 5 stars up to now. But this song is BETTER than you imagine. It's just an amazing tune, well orchestrated - I wouldn't change a thing. Coupled with Matt Harding's video, it's brilliant. The song stands on its own beautifully. It's now on my iPod, in my car, you name it. Spend the 99 cents. You'll be glad you did, and the world will be just a wee bit better because of it. Thanks, Garry, for a wonderful slice of music!
