Maranamethunna

(Translation on request for MP)
A song about yearning for your loved one’s presence at the death bed from the movie Spirit. A gem by Rafeeq Ahamed with excellent rendition by Unni Menon.

To listen to the song, click play:

Maranam ethunna nerathu nee ente arikil ithiri neram irikkane
[At the time when death comes, you please sit beside me for a little bit]

Kanalukal kori maravicha viralukal oduvil ninne thalodi shamikkuvaan
[So that the fingers which are frozen from handling embers, goes still while caressing you]
Oduvil aayi akathekku edukkum shwaasa kanikayil ninte gandham undaakuvaan
[So that in every atom of my last breath intake, your fragrance is carried]

Maranam ethunna nerathu nee ente arikil ithiri neram irikkane
[At the time when death comes, you please sit beside me for a little bit]

Ini thurakkendath(u)-illatha kankalil priyathe, nin mukham mungi kidakkuvaan
[So that in the eyes which need not be opened again, my darling, your face stays submerged]
Oru swaram polum ini edukkath(a)-oru ee chevikal nin swara mudrayaal mooduvaan
[So that these ears which will not take any more sounds is covered with a stamp of your voice]
Arivum ormayum katthum sirashil nin haritha swacha smaranakal peyyuvaan
[So that the brain aflame with cognition and remembrance, gets showered by your evergreen comforting memories]

Maranam ethunna nerathu nee ente arikil ithiri neram irikkane
[At the time when death comes, you please sit beside me for a little bit]

Adharamaam chumbanathinte murivu nin madhura naamajapathinaal kooduvaan
[So that the last bruised kiss my lips take by coming together is while uttering your sweet name]
Pranayame, ninnilekku nadann(a)-oru en vazhikal orthu ente paadam thanukkuvaan
Pranayame, ninnilekku nadann(a)-oru en vazhikal orthu ente paadam thanukkuvaan
[Hey love, so that my feet cools thinking of each step I took towards you]
Athu mathi udal moodiya mannil ninnu ivanu pulkodi aayi uyarthelkkuvaan
[That’s more than enough for this man to resurrect from the graveyard as a blade of grass]

Maranam ethunna nerathu nee ente arikil ithiri neram irikkane
Maranam ethunna nerathu nee ente arikil ithiri neram irikkane
[At the time when death comes, you please sit beside me for a little bit]
