Desert Rose
Sting Lyrics


Hathe mada tawila
Wa ana nahos ana wahala ghzalti
Wa ana nahos ana wahala ghzalti
Wa ana nahos ana wahala ghzalti

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
The rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

Aman aman 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

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

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

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

My life is for you
And no one other than you
And no one other than you

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

Ley ley hey Ley ley hey Ah ah Ah ah

{ Night oh night oh }

Hadaee mada tawila
Wa ana nahos ana wahala ghzalti
Wa ana nahos ana wahala ghzalti
Wa ana nahos ana wahala ghzalti

{ It has been a long time
And I am looking for myself and my gazelle (loved one)
And I am looking for myself and my gazelle (loved one)
And I am looking for myself and my gazelle (loved one) }

Ya ley ah ya ley

{ Oh night oh night }

I dream of rain, eh-ley heh-ley...
I dream of gardens in the desert sand.
I wake in vain, eh-ley heh-ley...
I dream of love as time runs through my hand.

I dream of fire, eh-ley heh-ley...
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire.
And in the flames, eh-ley heh-ley...
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire.

This desert rose, eh-ley heh-ley...
Each of her veils, a secret promise,
This desert flower, eh-ley heh-ley...
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this.

And as she turns, eh-ley heh-ley...
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams,
This fire burns, eh-ley heh-ley...
I realize that nothing's as it seems.

I dream of rain, eh-ley heh-ley...
I dream of gardens in the desert sand.
I wake in vain, eh-ley heh-ley...
I dream of love as time runs through my hand.

I dream of rain, eh-ley heh-ley...
I lift my gaze to empty skies above.
I close my eyes - this rare perfume
Is the sweet intoxication of her love.

Aman aman aman

(Aman aman aman
Omry feek antia
Ma ghair antia
Ma ghair antia)

{ My life is in you
And no one other than you
And no one other than you }

I dream of rain, eh-ley heh-ley...
I dream of gardens in the desert sand.
I wake in vain, eh-ley heh-ley...
I dream of love as time runs through my hand.

Sweet desert rose, eh-ley heh-ley...
Each of her veils, a secret promise,
This desert flower, eh-ley heh-ley...
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this.

Sweet desert rose, eh-ley heh-ley...
This memory of Eden haunts us all.
This desert flower, this rare perfume,
Is the sweet intoxication of the fall.

Ya ley ah ya ley

{ Oh night oh night }

Too bad Cheb Mami...threw it all away: Mami was under an international arrest warrant after being indicted in October 2006 for "voluntary violence, sequestration and threats" against an ex-wife, and failing to answer a court summons on 14 May 2007. He was accused of having tried to force Isabelle Simon, his former girlfriend and a magazine photographer, to have an induced abortion.[4] During a trip to Algeria in the summer of 2005, Isabelle Simon was locked in a house belonging to one of Mami's friends, where an abortive procedure was attempted on her. Back in France, however, she realized the fetus was still alive; she later gave birth to a daughter. Mami had accused his manager Michel Lecorre (a.k.a. Michel Levy) of organizing the abortion plan; Michel Levy was later sentenced to four years for plotting and organizing the assault.[5][6][7][8]

The name of Cheb Mami needs to be in titles

Stefan Radovanović

agreed

Yeah I first thought that this version is without Cheb Mami. It’s disappointing they didn’t put his name in the title description.
