Lost in Translation

This is a very crude translation of 'Iru Vizhi unadhu' song from the movie 'Minnale'. (RHTDM in Hindi). It is a very beautiful song and i am sure you would feel a gross injustice has been meted out by yours truly...however i did this translation for a friend of mine who didn't and still doesn't know Tamil but wanted to sing the song all the same.

This English piece can be sung to the same tune as the Tamil one.
My favourite song :)

Eyes are yours
Eyelids are yours
Dreams alone will be mine.
Days are lengthening, when you have gone away
Why punishment with me here to stay?
Oh oh One memory!
Oh oh Your memory!
When you're hurt in love, there's no place for sleep
Just memories...your memories.

I kinda liked the lyrics of the Surya Song which at one time goes like "Kadhal Seythal Papam".....No idea what the whole lyrics mean though...

Even i was looking for that phrase in this song yesterday after having taken a printout of its lyrics..! Maybe listen to the song and see if the phrase is sung but not written..!
