إرحل - Leave - Ahmad Qaabour - songs for Palestine

إرحل - Leave - Ahmad Qaabour - songs for Palestine

إرحل.. قالوا لي
Leave, They said to me
جند أتوا من بعيد
Soldiers who cam from far away

قالوا إرحل
They said : Leave!

دخلوا بيتي
They came into my home..
 قتلوا ولدي
They killed my son..
إغتصبوا امرأتي
They raped my wife...
قالوا إرحل..
They aid : Leave!

حفروا في الوجه مغارة
They engraved a cave in my face
مرّوا على جسدي
They ran over my body
زرعوا في القلب رصاصة
They planted a bullet in my heart
نصبوا لي الخيمة
They installed a tent for me
قلت سأبقى مارداً جرحاً يعانق تربتي
I said I will stay , a giant wound embracing my soil
و طرقت باب أمتي
and I knocked on the doors of my nation
وكانت نائمة
and it was sleeping
و بقيت وحدي
and i was left alone
وأمتي تحلم
while my nation was dreaming
دخلوا وأمتي تحلم
They came in .. while my nation was dreaming
قالوا إرحل..
They said : Leave!!

هذه بلادي واعلموا أن الصغار
This is my country and you better know that the small ones
من دورة الأحلام تمتلك القرار
from the cycle of dreams will own the decision
من سجون الليل تنتزع النهار وتمضي عواصفا
from the prisons of the night it grabs the daylight
and move like storms
