Sting & Cheb Mami Desert Rose Lyrics

هدي مدة طويلة
وأنا نحوس أنا وعلا غزالتي
وأنا نحوس أنا وعلا غزالتي
وأنا نحوس أنا وعلا غزالي

عمري فيك أنتيا
ما غير أنتيا
ما غير أنتيا

Layli ya layli ya
Hadi muda tweela
Wana nh’awis ana wa’la ghzalti
Wana nh’awis ana wa’la ghzalti
Wana nh’awis ana wa’la ghzali

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 a clove

Aman aman aman

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

Omri feek entiya
Ma gheer entiya
Ma gheer entiya

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

Ya lili ah ya leel

Translation of Cheb Mami’s part only

Oh night oh night
It’s been too long
That I’ve been looking for my loved one
That I’ve been looking for my loved one
That I’ve been looking for my loved one

Peace peace

You have my life
No one other than you
No one other than you

My night, oh night

O sera, o sera
E’ da tanto
che cerco il mio amore
che cerco il mio amore
che cerco il mio amore

Pace Pace

Hai la mia vita
Nessun altro a parte te
Nessun altro a parte te
Nessun altro a parte te
O sera, o sera
