Angaraag Mahanta’s – “Ejaak Botaahe Koley” lyrics

Ejaak botahey koley aahi,
Moi nobhoba kothabor…

Eti phuley kandi kandi,
Koley hi monor,
Kothabor…

Morom ki,
Dorey…

Ejaak dhumuha hoi,
Bisaari phurisey muk…

Ejaak botahey koley aahi,
Moi nobhoba kothabor…

Eti phuley kandi kati,
Koley hi monor kothabor…

Haatot tomaar,
Dhori haat…

Paar hoi oha xei baat…

Eri oha xei khuj,
Ajiu tu ase taat…

Ejaak omaal xondhiya
Asiley jot,
Tumaak diya eti tej rongi phool…

Tumi kiyo dila ubhotai,
Xei tejal paahibor?…

Tomar bukur umot,
Asil ji paal xomoy…

Tothapiu lagey mor,
Tumi nohoi bohu dur…

Tuli loba duhaatot,
Morohibo dhora aaxabor…

Tomar kumol poroxot naasibo mor,
Herai jowa eti xaaturongi xuur…

Ejaak botahey koley aahi,
Tumi tu xodaai mor…

Bukur kunotey aase,
Xei jonaaki raatibor…

Angaraag Mahanta’s – “Tumarei Jen” – English translation

It’s as if your melody
Paints colours of this dew today..

Many are the emotions (I feel)
Some I understand, some I don’t
They are all hazy,
Just like this dew…

I know not why,
This darkness descends today
(And) Why dreams get shattered…

Your hopes alone,
Are all that I carry in my eyes
Don’t know what my heart searches for…

It’s as if your melody
Paints colours of this dew today..

Many are the emotions (I feel)
Some I understand, some I don’t
They are all hazy,
Just like this dew…

In my eyes today,
It’s all just this eagerness for you,
The truths and lies,
Of hopes that were fulfilled,
Some perhaps not…

In my eyes today,
It’s all just this eagerness for you,
The truths and lies,
Of hopes that were fulfilled,
Some perhaps not…

Will I find you?
Somewhere amidst this moonlight…
Will I find you?
Right in the middle of my heart…
Will I find you?
When (in the evening) the earthen lamps are set alight…
Oh… this sweet dew covered evening…

It’s as if your melody
Paints colours of this dew today..

Many are the emotions (I feel)
Some I understand, some I don’t
They are all hazy,
Just like this dew…

Would you inch closer to me?
Just like these dew drops,
That descend in the evening…

Why is it that every time dusk falls,
My heart brightens up like the moonlight,
And keeps waiting again and again!

It gets set aflame,
Everytime it illuminates you!
Gets carried away by all the emotions that desire you (just you)
Those black clouds,
Why do they just float away
After pouring down the rain?…
Oh… this sweet dew covered evening…

It’s as if your sweet melody
Paints colours of this dew today..

Many are the emotions (I feel)
Some I understand, some I don’t
They are all hazy,
Just like this dew…
