Kattradhu Thamizh Movie’s Paravaiye Engu Irukkiraai Lyrics (with English Meaning)


Paravaiye Engu Irukkirai
Where are you, my bird?
Parakkave Ennai Azhaikkirai
You’re also inviting me to….
Thadayangal Thedi Varugiren Anbe
I’m coming in search of you, my love…

Adi En Bhoomi Thodangum Idam Edhu, Nee Thane
You’re the foundation of my earth.
Adi En Padhai Irukkum Idam Edhu, Nee Thane
You’re my path and destination.
Parkkum Dhisaigal Ellam, Pavai Mugam Varuthe
Regardless of the direction I look, I only see your face.
Meengal Kanalin Neeril Therivathundoo,
Can I see fish in the mirage? 
Kangal Poigal Solvathundoo
Can eyes lie to me?

Nee Potta Kadithathin Varigal Kadalaga
Your letters are like a sea to me.
Adhil Midhanthene Penne Nanum Padagaga
I’m floating on it like a boat…

Paravaiye Engu Irukkirai,
Where are you, my bird?
Parakkave Ennai Azhaikkirai
You’re also inviting me to….
Thadayangal Thedi Varugiren Anbe
I’m coming in search of you, my love…

Unnodu Nanum Pogindra Padhai
The path I take with you…
Idhu Neelatho Thoduvanam Polave
Won’t it go on forever, like the horizon?
Kadhai Pesi Konde Va Katrodu Povom
Let’s talk our way out… Flying with the air…
Uraiyadal Theernthalum Un Mounangal Podhum
Your silence is enough if there’s nothing to talk about.

Intha Pul Poondum Paravai Yavum Podhadha
Aren’t these grasses, plants, birds, and us enough?
Ini Bhoologam Muzhuthum Azhagai Pogatha
Wouldn’t this make the world more beautiful?

Mudhal Murai Vazha Pidikkuthe
The first time I feel like I want to live…
Mudhal Murai Velicham Pirakkuthe
The first time I see some light in my dark life…
Mudhal Murai Murintha Kilai Ondru Pookkuthe
The first time a broken branch rises…

Mudhal Murai Kadhavu Thirakkuthe
The first time the door is opened…
Mudhal Murai Katru Varuguthe
The wind is blowing in for the first time.
Mudhal Murai Kanavu Palikkuthe Anbe
My love, this is the first time my dream has come true.

Ezhai Kadhal Malaigal Thanil Thondrugindra
Oru Nadhi Agum

A poor man’s love is like a stream born amidst the mountains…
Manil Vizhunthum Oru Kayam Indri
Despite falling from a height without breaking apart,
Udaiyamal Urundodum Nadhiyagiduvom
It runs through the plains like a river.

Idho Idho Intha Payanathile, Idhu Podhum Kanmani
This is enough of my journey, my dear.
Verenna Nanum Ketpen
What else do I need?
Pirinthalum Manathile, Intha Nodiyil Endrum Vazhven
Though I am away from you, I can live with this moment fresh in my heart.

Intha Nigazhkalam Ippadiye Than Thodaratha
Won’t this moment of life carry on forever?
En Thaniyana Payanangal Indrudan Mudiyatha
Won’t my lonely journey come to an end this moment?

Mudhal Murai Vazha Pidikkuthe
The first time I feel like I want to live…
Mudhal Murai Velicham Pirakkuthe
The first time I see some light in my dark life…
Mudhal Murai Murintha Kilai Ondru Pookkuthe
The first time a broken branch rises…

Mudhal Murai Kadhavu Thirakkuthe
The first time the door is opened…
Mudhal Murai Katru Varuguthe
The wind is blowing in for the first time.
Mudhal Murai Kanavu Palikkuthe Anbe
My love, this is the first time my dream has come true.
