Sweetheart why had I come to this world other than to love you?

3ashan ydoub 3omri men gar7 ghadrak badri
So that my life can melt away from the wound of your betrayal

A candle and I am candle, and you will live for your own happiness

Honey and sour you are, Loyal and betrayer you are

A lie, a lie, a lie you are a lie

Laken a7la kedba ba3athali el zaman
But you are the most beautiful lie that the past has brought to me

Re22a, re22a, re22a enta re22a

Long ago when you came after disappearing for years

And to my heart you had called

Raddeit "habibi gani, eshta2 li habibou tani
I replied "My love has come for me, he missed his lover again

Li hobbi li hanani", w yaretni ma raddeit
missed my love and my tenderness" and I wish I had not replied

Zaman kan leena beit, w s7ab tayyibeen,
Long ago we had a home and dear friends

yebkou law youm bakeit
That would cry if I had cried one day

W ykhafou 3aleik ya ghali, w 3alaya mnel layali
And they would fear for you precious one, and for me from the lonely nights

Men hamsa, men kelma, w ydoubou law ghanneit
From a touch, from a word and they would melt if I sang

Zaman, zaman
Long ago, long ago
