Praan Lyrics – Where the Hell is Matt?

An amazing video of Matt Harding’s adventure :). The music is very nice but I think a foreigner sang it, the language seemed very recognizable to me at first but I couldn’t understand it properly. So I finally found the lyrics of the song and it is confirmed that the song in fact is a Bengali song by Rabindranath Tagore a famous Bengali polymath.

Here is the Lyrics of the song “Praan” in Bengali:

Bhulbona ar shohojete
Shei praan e mon uthbe mete
Mrittu majhe dhaka ache
je ontohin praan

Bojre tomar baje bashi
She ki shohoj gaan
Shei shurete jagbo ami
(Repeat 3X)

Shei jhor jeno shoi anonde
Chittobinar taare
Shotto-shundu dosh digonto
Nachao je jhonkare!

Bojre tomar baje bashi
She ki shohoj gaan
Shei shurete jagbo ami

Stream of Life:

The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day
runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures.

It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth
in numberless blades of grass
and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers.

It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean-cradle of birth
and of death, in ebb and in flow.

I feel my limbs are made glorious by the touch of this world of life.
And my pride is from the life-throb of ages dancing in my blood this moment.
