Jani ami jani Alik swapan jiban amar Dukher sagar asim pathar Jani ami jani Amar kanna keha nahi shune Prabhu kandi dibanishi Bhagna hriday chira sathi mor Tar sathe shudhu mishi
I know, I know, my life is a false dream, An endless expanse of sorrow. I know, I know, my heart-pangs Touch nobody’s heart. Yet helpless I cry day and night. Only one friend I have: A totally smashed heart.
