Minnalae...

minnalae! nee vandhadhaenadi?
en kannilae oru kaayamennadi?
en vaanilae nee maraindhupoana maayam ennadi?
sila nazhigai nee vandhu ponadhu,
en maaligai adhu vendhu ponadhu.
minnale! en vaanam unnai thaeduthae...

kan vizhiththup paarththapoadhu kalaindha vannamae - un
kairaegai onru mattum ninaivuchchinnamae.
kadharik kadhari enadhu ullam udaindhu poanadhae - ingu
sidharippoana sillil ellaam unadhu bimbamae.
kanneeril theevalarththuk kaaththirukkiraen - un
kaaladiththadaththil naan pooththirukkiraen.

paalmazhaikkuk kaaththirukkum boomi illaiyaa,
oru pandigaikkuk kaaththirukkum saami illaiyaa?
vaarththai varak kaaththirukkum kavignar illaiyaa...
naan kaaththirundhaal kaadhal innum meelumillaiyaa?
kanneeril theevalarththuk kaaththirukkiraen - un
kaaladiththadaththil naan pooththirukkiraen.

minnalae! nee vandhadhaenadi?
en kannilae oru kaayamennadi?
en vaanilae nee maraindhupoana maayam ennadi?
sila nazhigai nee vandhu ponadhu,
en maaligai adhu vendhu ponadhu.
minnale! en vaanam unnai thaeduthae...

This is a song for which, for years together, I have truly felt, and have still been feeling the emotion behind each and every word in the song. For sure, this is yet another song that has left an indelible imprint in my heart and mind.

hey anu!! :-)
yeah, certain songs give the pain, but yet you feel there is warmth every time you listen to it... more so when it evokes empathy and memories.

And the instrumentals (esp. the violins) in this song just take you by so much surprise.

Nice song.

My opinion is:
Any song which has a tamil and talks about Poems are not so suitable for a love song.
"vaarththai varak kaaththirukkum kavignan illaiyaa..."
These lines may not suitable.

Instead listen to this song,
"Kathal Valarthen Kathal Valarthen" from Manmadhan. It is such a nice and simple lyrics.

I am not confronting woth u and I was also a great fan of this song.

hi reflex! :-)
i understand...
yeah, the song from manmadhan is also a very good song.

A person who has undergone similar pain can only understand the true meaning of the song... only when he/ she knows that the person they are longing for.. is never gonna come back...
