Here is Tagore's English version of the lyrics to this song:

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.

A wonderful song that is featured on the YouTube-Hit "Where the Hell is Matt" (2008) (Matt Harding) and was written by Garry Schyman and sung by young Palbasha Siddique.

The text is from the Bengali poem Gitanjali ("Stream of Life") from Rabindranath Tagore:

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

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

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.

Simply love-food for my ears!

If you like this kind of music: try out the music from KÀ from Cirque du Soleil.

Hey Matt,
great work and kudos for your wonderful effort !!!
I've a burning curiosity...who influenced you to Tagore's works for adopting "Praan"? I am a Bengali and Tagore is our institution. We live by him and I was pleasantly surprised when I saw you adopt him. You don't even know Bengali...and even though you might have been told the meaning of this song by someone, is it the tune which got you hooked?
So congrats for your dances and double congrats for adopting a song sung in my mother tongue !!!
Take care,
Deb.

After watching the video, I had to get this album. I'm glad it was available to download. This is a really great album that I can play over and over again for several hours and never get tired of it. If you somehow got found this album without seeing the video, I suggest that you watch the video on Youtube(title: "Where the Hell is Matt (2008)") After see the video you will really appreciate the album and buy it. Get the album!!!!

Every time I see the video I get a little teary-eyed. Then I hear the beautiful song that accompanies and I'm blown away. I don't know what else to say because everyone here said it.

GREAT SONG AND A GREAT VIDEO. Thank you.

A colleague sent me the link to Matt's "Dancing 2008" video, and both the video and the joyous music have kept me grinning for days! Now that I know the meaning of the Bangla lyrics, and as a Buddhist, I'm even more enthralled and have passed on the info about this wonderful song --- "Praan" --- to everyone I know and love! Can't wait to see what happens for 2009... Keep changing the world, Matt, "one bad dance at a time".

I just heard it on todays astronomy picture of the day [...]
And I had to buy it. Very nice soothing music and vocals. Initially I did not think it was bengali song at all. Thanks to all the other reviewers.

Its has great meaningful lyrics and Palbasha has sung it superbly. Kudos to you!
