What is the difference between ingawa and ingawaje?

There's no difference, both words have the same meaning.

This translation needs a proper noun or at least a pronoun to differentiate the person sleeping from the person hearing. "ingawaje (or ingawa) alilala, Rehema, (or yeye) alisikia." Even in context this would be confusing.
