Desert Rose


Desert Rose

Sting


[Cheb Mami Introduction (Algerian Arabic):]

Hadaee mada tawila

Wa ana nahos ana wahala ghzalti
Wa ana nahos ana wahala ghzalti
Wa ana nahos ana wahala ghzalti
[English:]
Oh night oh night
It has been a long time
And I am looking for myself and my loved one
And I am looking for myself and my loved one
And I am looking for myself and my loved one


I dream of rain

I dream of gardens in the desert sand

I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand


I dream of fire

Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire

And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire


This desert rose

Each of her veils, a secret promise

This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this


And as she turns

This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams

This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems


I dream of rain

I dream of gardens in the desert sand

I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand


I dream of rain

I lift my gaze to empty skies above

I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love


[Cheb Mami (Algerian Arabic):]

Aman aman aman

Omry feek antia
Ma ghair antia
Ma ghair antia
[English:]
Aman aman aman
My life is for you
And no one other than you
And no one other than you


I dream of rain

I dream of gardens in the desert sand

I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand


Sweet desert rose

Each of her veils, a secret promise

This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this


Sweet desert rose

This memory of Eden haunts us all

This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall


[Cheb Mami (Algerian Arabic):]

Ya lili ah ya leel

[English:]
Oh night oh night



For Take a Word - Warm Colors

This work was inspired by this song. I love Sting and Cheb Mami. Besides, this song is special.
