Netru Illadha

Netru Illadha
Film:
Puthiya Mugam
Singer:

opening:

Netru illadha matram ennadhu
- Whats that change that was not there yesterday?

Katru en kadhil yedho sonnadhu
- The breeze came and whispered something in my ears

Idhu dhaan kadhal enbadha?Ilamai pongivittadha?
- Is this whats called love? Has my youth got out of bounds?

Idhayam sindhivittadha? Sol manamae
- Has my heart fallen off? Tell me my heart!

stanza 1:
Kadavul illai endren thayai kaanum varai
- I never believed in god, until I saw a mother

Kanavu illai yendren aasai thondrum varai
- I never believed in dreams until I experienced desire.

Kaadhal poi endru sonnaen unnai kaanum varai
- I never believed in love until I saw you.

Kavidhai variyin suvai artham puriyum varai
- The charm in poetry exists only until you understand the lyrics

Gangai neerin suvai, kadalil serum varai
- The sweetness of the Ganges exists only until it mingles with the
sea.

Kaadhal suvaiondru thaane kaatru veesum varai
- The sweetness of love is the one that exists as long as the wind
blows.

stanza 2:

Vaanamillamale boomi undagalam
- The earth could have formed without the sky

varthai illamale baashai undagalaam
- Languages could have been formed without words

kaadhal illamal ponaal vazhkai undaguma?
- But without love, life would have never come into being

vasam illamale vanna poo pookkalam
- Colorful flowers can bloom without fragrance

vaasal illamale katru vandhadalam
- The breeze can come in even if there were no doors

nesam illadha vazhvil pasam undaguma?
- But there can be no affection in life without love.

Thank you very much for the translation. Means a lot to me. A friend on facebook shared the song with youtube link. Heard first time. Makes me watch the movie soon. Loved the song so much but I couldn't understand the lyrics since I'm not Tamil. Had to google and so lucky to have found your blog. Beautiful, it only makes the song more special.
