    Is being a tamilian the only criteria for trying this!

    Every moment that I spend with you, my dear
    Not even at my deathbed will I forget
    It’s those 90 minutes of our intimate embrace,
    That lays heavy in my heart for 800 years
    The few moments when we exchanged glances
    The few moments when we feared
    The few moments for those tears that flowed
    When we held each other tight and close
    The few moments when desire kissed all over our bodies
    Not worrying what literature had to say on that
    Every moment that I spend with you, my dear
    Not even at my deathbed will I forget

    What’s righteous, what’s evil, the thought escaped us
    Was that night, was that day, oh, the knowledge iignored us
    Who shall begin, who shall end, the solution eluded us
    We had begun, and till now, no questions asked

    You were shy in your desire
    I disrupted your shyness and you wore your desire
    I disrupted your clothes and you wore your shyness
    Oh! Even as the royal vision vanished into a dream
    The last tear still sticks to my hand
    Every moment that I spend with you, my dear
    Not even at my deathbed will I forget
    Every moment that I spend with you, my dear
    Not even at my deathbed will I forget

    All my apologies to Vairamuthu 😉
