Pallavi

chithirai nila, orey nila
parantha vaanam
padacha kadavul
elame othaiyile nikkuthudey
nee kuda othaiyile nikkuradey
ettu vai makka
ettu vachu aagasam thottu vai makka

April Moon, single moon
wide skies
god who created us
all standing alone
you are also longing alone
step ahead friend
stead ahead and touch the skies friend

chithirai nila, orey nila
parantha vaanam
padacha kadavul
elame othaiyile nikkuthudey
nee kuda othaiyile nikkuradey
ettu vai makka
ettu vachu aagasam thottu vai makka

Charanam 1

manithan ninaithal
vazhi pirakkum
manathil-irunthu
oli pirakkum
puthaikindra vidhayum
muyarchi kondal thaan
boomiyum kooda thaazh thirakkum

if the human being desires
all new doors would open
Light would flow from the heart
even the planted seed
need to try hard
to open the lock earth

ettu vai makka
ettu vachu aagasam thottu vai makka

step ahead friend
stead ahead and touch the skies friend

kangalil irundhey kaatchigal thondrum
kalangalil irundhey desangal thondrum
thuyarathil irundhey kaaviyam thondrum
tholviyil irundhey (g)nyanangal thondrum
suriyan marainthal vilakondru sirikkum
thonigal kavizhnthaal kilai onru kidaikkum

Sight happens out of eyes
nation borns out of shaky pond
epic borns out of a sad event
clarity of thoughts comes out of defeats
when sun goes out, light smiles at you
when the boat crashes, tree branch would near you

chithirai nila, orey nila
ettu vai makka
ettu vachu aagasam thottu vai makka

April Moon, single moon
step ahead friend
stead ahead and touch the skies friend

Charanam 2

maram ondru vizhunthal marubadi thazhaikkum
manam indru vizhunthal yaar solli nadakkum
boomiyai thiranthal puthaiyalum irukkum
pookalai thairanthal then thuli irukkum (2)

when the tree falls it would grow again
who would guide a crashed heart ?
when you dig earth, you end up un-earthing treasure
when you open flower, you find honey drops

nadhigalai thiranthal kazhanigal sezhikkum
naalayam thiranthal nambikkai sirikkum
nadhigalai thiranthal kazhanigal sezhikkum
naalayam thiranthal nambikkai sirikkum

when one opens river, farmlands would flourish
when tomorrow comes, you can spot a smiling self confidence

chithirai nila, orey nila
chithirai nila, orey nila

naanayam thiranthal nambikkai sirikkum
when open opens Coin, you can spot a self confidence

April Moon, single moon

adho adho orey nila

  3. Hey I had always thought it was 'Naalayum Thirandhaal Nambikkai sirikkum' meaning when tomorrow opens, nambikkai smiles'. I didn't get what is the relation between naanayam (coin) and nambikkai (self-confidence)? An explanation would help bro. Thanks for your amazing efforts to uncover the meaning of a rgeat song like this.
