செய்யாமற் செற்றார்க்கும் இன்னாத செய்தபின் 
உய்யா விழுமந் தரும்
உய்யா விழுமந் தரும்

பிறர்க்கின்னா முற்பகல் செய்யின் தமக்குஇன்னா
பிற்பகல் தாமே வரும் வரும் வரும்

I’ll meet you where the sky is torn
I’ll meet you in the air
I’ll meet you before the world was born
And we had not a care

This is an invitation
To a high location
For someone who wants to belong
This is a meditation
On your radio station
If you like it, you can sing along

Ahimsa, Ahimsa
Ahimsa, Ahimsa

I’ll meet where there is no weeping
Your tears are not a stream
I’ll meet you where there is no sleeping
Where we wake up to dream

This is an invitation
To a high location
For someone who wants to belong
This is a meditation
On your radio station
If you like it, you can sing along

Ahimsa, Ahimsa
Ahimsa, Ahimsa
Ahimsa, Ahimsa

Ahimsa, Ahimsa, Ahimsa
Ahimsa, Ahimsa, Ahimsa
Ahimsa, Ahimsa, Ahimsa
Ahimsa, Ahimsa, Ahimsa

செய்யாமற் செற்றார்க்கும் இன்னாத செய்தபின் 
உய்யா விழுமந் தரும்
உய்யா விழுமந் தரும்

பிறர்க்கின்னா முற்பகல் செய்யின் தமக்குஇன்னா
பிற்பகல் தாமே வரும் வரும் வரும்

 

English phoenetic version of the Tamil lyrics:

Seyyaamal Setraarkkum Innaadha Seydhapin
Uyyaa Vizhuman Tharum
Uyyaa Vizhuman Tharum

Pirarkkinnaa Murpakal Seyyin Thamakku
Innaa Pirpakal Thaame Varum Varum Varum
Pirarkkinnaa Murpakal Seyyin Thamakku
Innaa Pirpakal Thaame Varum Varum Varum

English translation of the Tamil lyrics:

Though unprovoked thy soul malicious foes should sting
Retaliation wrought inevitable woes will bring

If you harm others in the forenoon
Harm will visit you, by itself, in the afternoon

(This song is features A.R. Rahman, Raheema Rahman, and Khatija Rahmann on co-lead vocals. The lyrics in Tamil are taken from verses of the Thirukkiral. Very special thanks to Syd Balachandran for his fantastic help with the Sanskrit and Tamil lyrics)
