Was it You or Me?

  Who first came near
At the very first sight
Who fell in love?
I try so much
Today I can’t remember -
Was it you or me?
 
Who called first
Who made the response
Maddened by love
Who first lost the way
Who it was who fired the mind
And happily smiled?
 
Who made the promise
Who touched the hearts
And joined them together?
 
When did it all begin?
So much taking
So much giving -
Who started the song
In the same mood
Now we sing together?
Forgetting all
Who dived first
Into this stream of love?
Was it you or me?

Translation of a very sweet and romantic Bengali love song – Ke prothom kachhe esechhi – from the film Sankhabela. It is a duet sung by Manna De & Lata Mangeshkar. The lyric and music are by the modern Bengali composer Sudhin Dasgupta who was also the music director of the film.
