ये तेरे घुंघुरू
जब थिरक उठते  हैं
लगता है मुझे कि
तू नाच रहा है बस मेरे लिए

मगर तू तो शिव है
जिसका आधा शरीर नर
और दूजा है नारी
शिव तू शक्ति भी तू

ऐसे में अक्सर सोचता हूँ कि
शिव के कैसे हैं
ये दो रूप ?

एक समुन्दर सा भीभत्स
दूजा झरने जैसा  शाँत
कौन सा है तेरा निज रूप

अगर तू है शिव, तो हूँ मैं कौन
झूम के नाच क्यूँ रहा हूँ मैं  बावरा
जब भी रू-ब -रू  होता हूँ तुझसे
है नहीं ये प्यार और नाही दोस्ती
हम हैं शायद एक ही रूहऔर एक जान

Do not fly away, O’ blackbird
Come a little closer
And, sing me a lullaby

My eyes are sunken
Help me sail through this night

People around are so mean
They trample
They stomp
Nobody cares if you fall

Why do I wail, O’ blackbird?
Let me know the reason why?
O’ blackbird, sing me a lullaby
I want to sleep tonight.

ഹാ, നരാധമന്മാരെ
ആഘോഷിച്ചുവോ നിങ്ങൾ
അമ്പരന്നു നിൽക്കുന്ന
ഒരമ്മയുടെ പൈതലിന്റെ മരണം?
നടനമാടിയോ നിങ്ങൾ 
അബലനാം വിതുമ്പി നിൽക്കുന്ന
ഒരുവന്റെ ജഡത്തിന്മേൽ?
വിശപ്പിന്റെ വിളിയാൽ അന്നം
നുകർന്ന ആ ചോരനെ
കിരാതൻ എന്നു ചൊന്നുവോ?
തച്ചുടച്ചില്ലയോ അവന്റെ നെഞ്ചകം?
കരുണയെന്ന സഹജ ഭാവത്തെ 
നിങ്ങൾ അപഹസിച്ചുവോ?
ഒരു പിടി അന്നം ഊട്ടുവാൻ
മടിച്ച നിങ്ങൾ 
വായ്ക്കരി കുത്തിനിറച്ചില്ലയോ
അവന്റെ വിശപ്പിൻ വയറ്റിൽ?
ഹാ, നരാധമന്മാരെ നിങ്ങളോ നവകേരളത്തിലെ നവമുകുളങ്ങൾ?

How sure are you, that you say
One and one is two?
I have fallen in love

and, I have lost every single time.

love has lost its spell on me
Yet, I am here to give it a try
I may be dry 
But, I am sure I want to give it a try

To feel the love in my tummy
And, to be lost with a smile in her thoughts
let me wander in her dreams
let me watch her smile.

And, Then I will sing
one and one is two.

Why did you run away from me?
Without a clue … a sign
Yeah, it is true that I hold an empty account
And, that I do not drive a car
Is that the reason why?

Gaze into my eyes
And, you’ll see the light
Of love
Just the way every inch of my skin
Has felt your caress
that ran down through your fingers 

I am sitting here feeling numb
Not knowing what to do
With an empty glass of sorrows
And, a room full of darkness

how do I say, without tears
that it hurts?

(Why did you run away from me?
Without a clue … a sign)

Her Breast :
She left me
When the night Bird sang a song

of farewell in the month of February
But, before she could leave
She offered me her voluptuous breast
Full of poison
Which I sucked until she pulled it away
Now, I wander through the night in search of her
To tell her how I spew venom.

The sun has never set today
Thus, keeping me awake
And, has taken away from my embrace,
the warm, cosy night.

My heart was brimming with love, for you
But you cut my lips
and then left me to die, bleeding
On that day on Valentines

Yet I sang for you
with my heart and soul
on that day on Valentines

My love, How I wish
I could see you tonight
before I fall asleep
send  me your love,
Mend my broken heart
Call out my name - AJ
as huskily as you could
and, leave me alone 
to drench in your sighs
