Latifa won the best middle eastern singer in the World Music Awards 2004 for that album. It's was a smash hit in the Arab world.
This song is a great example of Arab Pop Music, you can listen to Arab instruments such as Tabla along with Techno beats, she perform a short part with Arab rhythms in the song.
The song was performed in three different languages!
The first time in the year 2001 by the Greek singer "Despina Vandi", the song's name is "Ah Kardoula Mou".
In the year 2003 the song's music was recomposed and rearranged (legally) and released in Arabic language by "Latifa", the song's name is "Ma Etrohsh Ba'ed" (Don't go away).
"Havas" is the name of the Persian version, released in 2005...It's a remix of the Arabic version performed by the Persian singer "Shohreh Solati"; that one wasn't legal.
Despite it's legal or not, I think it's a great way that people around the world can share the exact passion of Music, I know it's took two years for each version to reach others and I really wish if there is a faster way so everybody can listen to the latest songs in all over the world in the exact released date.
The photo above is my graphics work of Latifa performing the song in the World Music Awards 2004 also you might notice her photo with Celine Dion.
Latifa's speech was censored by the USA media when she said "My happiness remains incomplete until Iraq & Palestine are freed"!
Here is the song's video clip...VIVA YOUTUBE LOL

My Love, Don't go away
My love, I need you beside me
My love, come closer to me...Come closer
For many starry nights I’ve been living imagining you in my fantasies...
Before seeing you my precious I kept thinking of you every awaking moment
My love, while you are beside me all my life is full of love; your love is the most valuable to me.
With every night your words were on my mind, you are the life in my eyes and the world to my heart.
Dear starry nights he finally told me that I am the love of his life
The years of my life passed before knowing you and no one has replaced you ever
All I need is your heart to be with me even for one second
It's enough for me to have you as my forever love in my heart
Love… Always stay with me and don’t go away
أنا عايزاك جنبي حبيبي
قرب من قلبي حبيبي...قرب لي كمان
ليالي أنا عشت معاك في خيالي
قبل ما أشوفك يا غالي
ولا ثانية تغيب عن بالي
يا حياتي أنا
حبيبي و أنت جنبي
الحب كله بيملى قلبي
و حبك اغلى ما ليا
ليالي على بالي
كل كلمة قلتهالي
يا دنية قلبي و عنيا
يا ليالي حبيبي قالهالي
انت عمري و أعز غالي
سنيني قبلك مرت على عيني
و لا شئ عنك يغنيني
قلبك وحده يكفيني
لو ثانية لقا
كفاية أني أشوفك جوايا
مالي قلبي و هوايا
خليك على طول ويايا
يا حبيبي بقى
