Tenere taqqim tossam

Tenere ti nin
tenere nekkim
taqqim tafuk tedu
Teyyed fel shinawan ashni
Itissed ehad hi tismesti
Teyyed fel shinawan ashni
Tenere tekkus akan aman nes
Aman iman
Dagh aytman ghred tendam
S tenere taqqim tossam
Aghregh yallah kay s ammaqqar
Ayyetkalan tumast tartay
 
O Tenere,
you jealous desert,
why can't you see
you are a treasure?
I've seen the world,
I love you better.
O Tenere,
you are the treasure
of my soul.
 
Dagh aytman ghred tendam
S tenere taqqim tossam
(bis)
 
Aghregh yallah kay s ammaqqar
Ayyetkalan tumast tartay
(bis)
 
Thanks!

He doesn't say "All through the rain", he says "O Tenere". Please correct it, thank you Regular smile
