Oh You - Poem by tmiky sjj

Oh you with the beautiful eyes, whether you give your heart, or you scorn us...
We're crazy for you, we're drunk with love!
Oh you of the lying talk,
your faces are innocent but your hearts are black!
These lovers are thieves; they'll break everyone's hearts!
Go on, girl, do what you will; I've drenched your whole body with color. [note: song takes place during Holi, festival in which people throw colored dye on each other]
Hey boy, it's a promise: I'll crucify you!
I'll impale myself and die for you if you tell me to!
If you ever manage to scare me, I'll hand over my heart to you!
Mark my words: you two will fall in love one day!


We're crazy for you, we're drunk with love!
These lovers are thieves; they'll break everyone's hearts!

Why are you standing so far away from me?
You seem extremely intoxicated!
Why do you stand so far away? You're very close to my heart!
Come, make up some excuse to embrace me!
You seem extremely intoxicated - every girl's keeping her distance!
Even so, I've come at your call.
You should have thought before you came;
now that you've come, don't go back!

Whether there be sadness or happiness,
the eastern breeze still blows: one comes and one will go;
why then have you restrained your heart?
I haven't held back this heart; it has held me back.
Someone just tell me: what is true, and what is false?
This whole world is very lovely; this is the only truth.
These colors are very beautiful!

Oh you with the beautiful eyes, give us your hearts, or scorn us...
Oh you of the lying talk,
your faces are innocent but your hearts are black!
