My favorite lyrics - part 1

Nenjam ellam (Ayitha eluthu)

"Un kuraigal nan ariyavillai;
Nan arindhal suriyane sutham illai!"

None is perfect in this world. Imperfection is a kind of beauty. A man need not be perfect to win a lady's love. This has been brought out beautifully in the above lines...


Newyork nagaram (Sillu nu oru kadhal)

"Nan inge; Neeyum ange
Indha thanimayil nimishangal varushamanadheno?
Van inge; neelam ange
Indha uvamaiku iruvarum vilakkamanadheno?"
.

"Jil enru boomi irundhum indha tharunathil kulir kalam kodayanatheno?
Va anbe neeyum vandhal sendhanal kooda panikkati pola marume!"

A beautiful metaphor is used to show how the hero misses his sweetheart. This remains as one of my most favorite lyrics...
