Vanil Thedi Nindren, Azhi Nee Adaindhai,
Azhi Nan Vizhunthal, Vanil Nee Ezhundhai,

As I searched the skies for you, you vanished into the sea.
As I plunged into the sea, you appeared in the sky.

Ennai Natchathira Kattil, Alayavittai,
Nan Endra Ennam, Tholayavittai,

You left me wandering in a star-spangled forest,
and made me lose my sense of self.

Nallai Allai, Nallai Allai, Nannilave Nee Nallai Allai,
Nallai Allai Nallai Allai, Nallirave Nee Nallai Allai,

This ain’t right. It ain’t fair.
O beautiful moon, this ain’t right.
This ain’t right. It ain’t fair.
O beautiful midnight, this ain’t right.

Oligalin Thedal Enbadhellam, Mounathil Mudigindradhe,
Mounathin Thedal Enbadhellam, Gnyanathil Mudigindradhe,
Nan Unnai Thedum, Velaiyile Nee, Megam Soodi, Odivittai,

The quest for sound ends in silence.
The quest for silence ends in wisdom.
And when I seek you draped in clouds, you drift away.

Nallai Allai Nallai Allai, Nannilave Nee Nallai Allai,
Nallai Allai Nallai Allai, Nallirave Nee Nallai Allai,

Mugai Mugil, Mottendra Nilaigalile,
Muganthoda Kathirundhen,
Malar Endra Nilai Vittu, Pooththirundhai,
Manam Kolla Kathirunthenn,
Magarandham Thedi, Nugarum Munne,
Veyil Kattil Veezhndhuvittai,

I was waiting, O’ Cloud-seed, to caress your face like a flower bud.
I was waiting to inhale your scent, you’ve bloomed into a flower.
Even before I could get drunk with your pollen, the scorching heat withered away.

Nallai Allai Nallai Allai, Narumpoove Nee Nallai Allai,
Nallai Allainallai Allai, Mullai Kollai Nee Nallai Allai,

This ain’t right. It ain’t fair. O beautiful moon, this ain’t right.
This ain’t right. It ain’t fair. O beautiful midnight, this ain’t right.
