Breathe your voice to those nightingales

Breathe your voice to those nightingales

Breathe your voice to those nightingales, so they may sing sweeter
Offer your cheeks to the pink lotus overwhelming the pond, so they look still more rosier 
Let the jewels hold the sparkle of your eyes tight, so those may shine brighter 
share your vermilion lips with the tender leaf of Ironweed, so those may stay lovelier
Pour your tears upon the flowing stream, so its waves may not fade
Allow the breeze absorb the soothing sizzle of your laughter
Hold your deep blue hair behind the clouds, so those may gain a better shade
Let the turf take a leaf from your tender feet, so they may turn softer
Grant the rainbow, the curve of your eyebrows 
Turn your gaze upon the heavens so the moon & the stars may dazzle brighter
Lend sparks of your beauty to the heavens, my ravishing darling and make it joyous 
Yet, never ever, open your heart to any, so long as I lust after

Victor Ratnayake was born on 18 the February 1942 at Kadugannawa on Colombo- Kandy Road  is the most popular singer ever in Sri Lanka. Victor Ratnayake’s music blending Western music with Ragadari classical music made an important milestones in Sinhalese music in Sri Lanka.

Sinhala language lyrics of Breath your voice to those nightingales  was composed by Samaraweera Mudalige Don Premakeerthi de Alwis ( (3 June 1947–31 July 1989). Premakeerthi De Alwis was a Sri Lankan broadcaster, lyricist and television personality. He worked as an anchorman on state-run television. Premakeerthi, who wouldn't hate anyone under the sun even in secrecy,  Premakeerthi who was loved by all, and loved all, was murdered on 31 July 1989.
Those in the west who talk of human rights of Sri Lanka today weren't heard during 1989.
An attempt at a translation from Sinhala to English is done by bunpeiris. Translation in no way do justice to the original Sinhala lyrics.
