Lyrics: Je Kota Din Tumi Chhile Paashe From The Movie Baaishey Shraabon


A beautiful song that I've only recently discovered and have since been playing a lot lot lot. Can't stop humming this all the time...

So here's the video starring the gorgeous Raima Sen and the talented Parombroto Chatterjee. Watch the video and sing along with the lyrics jotted here:

Je kota din tumi chhile paashey (all those days that you were by my side)
ketechhilo noukaar paaley chokh rekhey (were spent staring out at the sail boats)
aamaar chhokhey thonte gaaley tumi legey aachho (your touch is there on my eyes, lips, cheeks)

Jetuko rod chhilo lukono megh (the little sunshine that was hiding in the clouds)
diye buni tomaar shaal'e bhaalobaasha (I used that to weave love in your shawl)
aamaar aangul haathey kaandhey tumi legey aachho (your touch is there on my fingers, hands, shoulders)

Tomaar nokhey dogaaye teebro premer maaney (the tip of your nails hold the meaning of a raw love)
aamio golpo shaajaai tomaar kaaney kaaney (I take the chance to whisper new stories in your ear)
taakiye thhaki haajaar porda ora bikel (I stare out at those many evenings when the wind blows through the curtains)
shohor dumrey muchrey thhaak onno dikey (as the city lays crumpled and wrinkled on another side)
traffic'er ei cacaphony aamaader shopno chushey khaaye (the cacaphony of the traffic sucks in all our dreams)

Je bhaabe joldi haath mekhechhey bhaat (the way our fingers mix the rice)
Notun aalor khosha aar ei bhaalobaasha (with the skin on the new potatoes and the love all mixed together)
aamaar deyaal ghorir kaantaaye tumi legey aachho (your touch is there in the hands of my wall-clock)

Jemon joriye chhiley ghoom ghoom boroph paashey (the way you were wrapped around me in my sleep)
aamio khunji tomaaye aamaar aashey paashey (I too search for you all around me)
aabaar shondhe belaaye phirey jawa jaahaaj baanshi (again the evenings take away the ships the sails the flutes)
bukey paathor raakhaa mukhey raakhaa haanshi (a boulder in my heart, a smile on my lips)
je jaar nijer deshey aamraa shrot kurotey jaai (as we head towards our own directions, our destinations, in search of the eternal waves)

Je bhaabe joldi haath mekhechhey bhaat (the way our fingers mix the rice)
Notun aalor khosha aar ei bhaalobaasha (with the skin on the new potatoes and the love all mixed together)
aamaar deyaal ghorir kaantaaye tumi legey aachho (your touch is there in the hands of my wall-clock)

Je kota din tumi chhile paashey (all those days that you were by my side)

ketechhilo noukaar paaley chokh rekhey (were spent staring out at the sail boats)
aamaar chhokhey thonte gaaley tumi legey aachho (your touch is there on my eyes, lips, cheeks)
aamaar aangul haathey kaandhey tumi legey aachho (your touch is there on my fingers, hands, shoulders)

Tomaar chokhey thonte gaaley aami legey aachhi (i am there in your eyes lips cheeks)
tomaar aangul haathey kaandhey aami legey aachhi (i am there in your fingers hands shoulders)
aamaar chhokhey thonte gaaley tumi legey aachho (your touch is there on my eyes, lips, cheeks)
aamaar aangul haathey kaandhey tumi legey aachho (your touch is there on my fingers, hands, shoulders)

  6. Chitro Lekha...Wow! Did I?? Must say I'm quite surprised then ;-) thanks a lot for stopping by..yes, his songs sure are something, aren't they? And I don't even stay in the city and most of the times don't understand half of the lyrics, but that's what's so amazing about music, that it speaks to you and touches you without always speaking your language...
