Western/ The West (El Ghorbah)

English translation

Western/ The West

Oh God, curse emigration
because of what it did to me
Its sour and took out my heart
and stole precious things from me
We said we'd travel form 2 year then we would return to our villiage
We wasted so many years here, yet Hussein still hasn't finalized his sale
 
Oh woe, oh woe, oh woe
God help those with families
Living with a mere candlelight and worrys
and is bathing in a cup
Oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord
Oh my misfortune, oh Lord
What happened to these people
Everybody is starving and living in poverty
Oh woe, oh woe, oh woe
God help those with families
Living with a mere candlelight and worrys
and is bathing in a cup
Oh woe. Oh woe. Oh woe, oh woe, oh woe
 
Oh how i missed my mom and dad and how my sister iron my clothes
I missed listening to kind words and that would make me forget my worries
Hes leaves, a young man then returns and graying and aged, but now he can relax
I have returned but realized I can't find the rest of my loved ones
Oh hard it is my brother
 
Same old, same old, same old
The world is still the same
People come and people go
and it stays same old, same old
Oh mother, Oh mother, Oh mother,
I can't forget any of my worries
I become a shadow in my own life
and now its running through my blood
Same old, same old, same old
The world is still the same
People come and people go
and it stays same old, same old
Same old. Same old. Same old, same old, same old
 
(father talks)
 
I dont want to be an expatriate anymore
I'm returning to my villiage and there is where you'll find me
I want to kneel down and kiss the soil of this tender land
Live in this world and be satisfied with what you have got
It left, it came back, it went up, it went down, dont get you self upset over things that really dont mean anything
 
Heaven, heaven, heaven
This world, i swear to god is heaven
Listen to me and relax your heart
Just with that alone, you will live blissfully
From me, from me, from me
Oh the west stay away from me
You separated me from my loved ones
and you stole my precious things from me
Heaven, heaven, heaven
This world, i swear to god is heaven
Listen to me and relax your heart
Just with that alone, you will live blissfully
From me. From me. From me, from me, from me
