Mounangal

Ever been at the precipice of falling in love? Mahesh and Jimcy are. The song evokes that feeling of realizing there is more to their acquaintance, wondering whether the other person feels the same way and if this should be explored.

To listen to the song, click play:

Mounangal mindum oru ee nerathu
Mohangal peyyum oru ee theerathu
[In this time where silences speak
On this shore where wishes shower from above]
Ithu vare thirayuvathu ellam
Manassin ithalil ariya shalabhamaayi varavaayi..
[Till now all that I was searching for,
in my mind’s petals, are arriving as beautiful butterflies]
Innu en nenjam neelakasham…
[Today my mind is like the vast blue sky]

Mounangal mindum oru ee nerathu
Mohangal peyyum oru ee theerathu
[In this time where silences speak
On this shore where wishes shower from above]
Ithu vare thirayuvathu ellam
Manassin ithalil ariya shalabhamaayi varavaayi..
[Till now all that I was searching for,
in my mind’s petals, are arriving as beautiful butterflies]
Innu en nenjam neelakasham…
[Today my mind is like the vast blue sky]

Parichitham etho parimalam aayi,
ariyukayaayi njaan, ennil ninne
[Like a familiar fragrance,
I’m feeling you in me]
Veruthey alanju… ennal arikilithaa nee
enne thazhuki unarthaan, engo ninnum
[I was wandering… but here you are
to caress me awake, from somewhere]
Premathaal maathram mizhikalil vidarum
Peru illa pookkal kaanukayaayi njaan
[With only love, blooming in my eyes
these nameless flowers, I’m starting to see]
Ariyuvathu aaru aanu aadyam…mozhiyuvathu aaru aanu aadyam
Anuragathin maaya manthram kaathil
[Who will realize first?…who will confess first?
this love’s magic endearments in the other’s ears?]
Innu en nenjam neelakasham…
[Today my mind is like the vast blue sky]

Hrithayam ithu etho, pranaya nilaavil*
aliyukayaayi, ven megham aayi
[My heart, in some love daze,
is dissipating as a white cloud]
Oru cheru sooryan, pole minungi
Hima kanamaam en, moham melle**
[Like a tiny sun, did twinkle,
the snow flake that my desire is]
Aazhathil, meenayi, neenthi varoo nee
Aakaasham neele, paari varoo nee
[In the deep waters, like a fish, swim to me
In the vast skies, (like a bird,) fly to me]
Padaruka aanu engum, theliyuka aanu engum
mizhiyorathil ninnu ee raagonmaadam
[It (Love) is spreading everywhere, it is revealing all over
starting from the eyes, like some crazy music]
Innu en nenjam neelakasham…
[Today my mind is like the vast blue sky]

Mounangal mindum oru ee nerathu
Mohangal peyyum oru ee theerathu
[In this time where silences speak
On this shore where wishes shower from above]
Ithu vare thirayuvathu ellam
Manassin ithalil ariya shalabhamaayi varavaayi..
[Till now all that I was searching for,
in my mind’s petals, are arriving as beautiful butterflies]
Innu en nenjam neelakasham…
[Today my mind is like the vast blue sky]

* Pranayam is love and nilaavu is moonlight. pranaya nilavu is used figuratively to compare the feeling to a beautiful moonlit night.
** Desire(likened to a snow flake) is twinkling, like a tiny sun.
