Latifa - I lived my life | #لطيفة - #أنا_عشت_عمري

My current non-stop-playing-in-loops-song or as i call it for short my national anthem...very full with love, specifically the bold part is beautifully written and performed, the music is amazing...the military beats at the beginning qanun on house beats is something very new and and original...This is one of the reasons I love Latifa...The way she mixes different things in such a harmony.

إسم الأغنية: انا عشت عمري
غناء: لطيفة
كلمات : محمد رفاعي
ألحان :وليد سعد
توزيع : يحيى الموجي

Song name: "Ana Esht Omry" (I lived my life)
Singer: Latifa
Lyrics: Mohamed Refaay
Composer: Walid Saad
Mix by: Walid Sharaky
Genre: House
English translation by:

انا عشت عمرى للحظة دي 
I lived my life until this moment
من بدرى عارفة أن أنت ليا 
From early on I knew that you are mine 
خبيت فى قلبى أحساسى بيك 
I hid in my heart my feelings to you 
أحنا الليلادى بس أبتدينا 
Tonight, we just begun 
الحب كله راح يبقى لينا 
The whole love will belong to us 
أنا عمرى كله هعيشه ليك 
I will live my whole life devoted to you 

أحلى حاجة أنت فى حياتى 
You are the most beautiful thing in my life 
طب بس جرب وأطلب حياتى 
Give it a try and ask for my life 
I will give it to you 
ماتغلاش عليك 
It's not more precious than you 

اه ياحب دنيا أنت اللي فيها 
Oh, I love the life that you exists into it 
كل السعادة هتلاقيها 
All the happiness you will find 
مبسوط حبيبي وأنا بين أيديك 
Are you happy baby, while you have me between your hands?

ربنا يقدرنى وأقدر أسعدك 

May God give me enough strength so I can make you happy 

بس شاور 
Just point out to me... 
قولى أية نفسك فى أية 
And tell me what would you like to have? 

هكتب ميلادى يوم ماألتقينا 
I will re-write my birthday to the day we met 
يومها القمر كان شاهد علينا 
That day the moon was our witness 
وهقيد فى شمعة حبى الوحيد 
And I will lit the candle of my one and only love 
أنا قلبى شافك قبل عينى 
My heart saw you, before my eyes did 
وفضلت باستناك تجيى 
And I waited for you to come 
دا يوم لقانا بقى عندى عيد 
The day we met became my "Eid"

#mynationalanthem | #نشيدي_الوطني

You know how sometimes you talk to someone and everything that comes of their mouth sounds like something you might feel or say if you were good at expressing your self with words?

Not everything of course have to be expressing my exact feelings, but it's nice to know that others might have thoughts that could align with yours, knowing that they might think the same way you think, it sort of makes you feel less lonely...Specially if it was told or written in a poetic way.

Sometimes that happens to me when hear certain words or phrases said by others, or when I listen to certain songs, new or an old one that I never heard before...I get so touched by it and it's stuck in my head listening to it over and over and over again, and that could last for weeks...

Most of the time because It touches me on so many levels, the music or maybe an instrument in it...Or the lyrics sometimes expresses a way I felt or feel in the most beautiful way I could've imagined, or maybe an idea I've never thought of before but if I would have written it my self, it would be in that exact words/way...It could also be certain feelings I have because of the way the singer brought the words to life.

I call each of those songs #mynationalanthem (#نشيدي_الوطني)

So in the future if you see any of my posts with the hashtag #mynationalanthem (#نشيدي_الوطني) , and you are into songs with lyrics such as "who let the dog out who who who who" or "who run the world, girls"...Just don't bother and read anything I ever post.

Keep in mind that my national anthem are things that I didn't write my self but they are my translations, things I write my self will not have that hashtag and I am always referring to them as "living words" and since they are original content I am assuming they I don't have to point it out

You Either Feel or Think by Sherine

إسم الأغنية: يا بتفكر يا بتحس

غناء: شيرين
كلمات : علي المولى
ألحان : صلاح الكردي
توزيع : جيمي حداد
مهندس صوت: محمد مقهور

Song name: "Ya Bitfakkar Ya Bet'his" (You either feel or think)

Singer: Sherine
Lyrics: Ali AlMola
Composer: Salah AlKurdi
Mix by: Jemmi Haddad
Genre: Slow Lebanese/ Oriental pop music
كنز لَـ يلّي اقتنع
بس نحنا
مركبين عَ طمع

عم جرّب حِبّ ووقف
أنا عم جرّب مش عم أعرف
عم جرّب إلحق عقلي
والمنطق شو بيقلي
عم جرّب مش عم أعرف

يا بتفكرّ يا بتحس
لا ما فيك توقف بالنص
ولا فيك تاخد كلشي
نقِّي واحد مننّ بس

أيّ شخص عنده نقص
لو قد ما ببيّن كامل
إتأكد بدّه إشيا كتير
عندك ياها ومش سائل

الدنيا ما بتكمل مع حدا
شو نحنا ما منستاهل؟
بس أوقات بتظلمنا
عم يطلع ظلما عادل

Is a treasure for whoever is convinced
But we are...
Built to be greedy
I am trying to fall in love, then I stop...
I am trying but I can't figure it out
I am trying to follow my brain
And what's logic dictates on me
I am trying but I can't figure it all out

You either think or feel
You can't be in between
You can not have it all
You have to choose only one thing of everything

Every individual is incomplete
No matter how perfect s/he looked
For sure s/he wants a lot of things
Things that you have and you take it for granted

Nobody have it all in life
No matter how much we deserve it
But sometimes, it oppresses us
Yet it's still fair

My weakness

Not really sure how to start talking about this song, I love this kind of lyrics that talks about human feelings in general, other than love and hate, I mean ordinary love songs...This is much deeper, something that could touch every human anywhere...Sometimes I listen to certain songs non-stop when they are released and I'd normally refer to them as my "national anthem"...This is one of them.

The piano in this song, the way she sings, the sigh at 3:08 </3

إسم الأغنية: ضعفي 
غناء: شيرين 
كلمات : سلطان صلاح 
ألحان : خالد عز 
توزيع : نادر حمدي 

Song name: "Daafy" or "Dha'afi" (My weakness) 
Singer: Sherine
Lyrics: Sultan Salah 
Composer: Khaled Ezz 
Mix by: Nader Hamdy 
Genre: Slow Egyptian/ Oriental pop music 

ضعفي بيصعب عليّا 
وعشان عزيز عليّا 
ببعد ساعتها عن أي حد أنا بعرفه 
وبخاف لضعفي ساعتها مني يخوفه 
وأفضل كده لحد ما أهدى 
لحد ما أقوى 
لحد ما أقدر من تاني أواجه 
ما أقدرش أواجه 
نظرة عيون فرحانة فيّا 

الناس لبعض دي كلمة بِطلت 
كان ليها وقت زمان وخلصت 
فيه حد ينفع يقول لحد ما تحس بيّا 
أنا عندي أعيش لوحدي أحسن 
وأتعب شوية من إني أرّخص نفسي 
ولا أصعب في يوم على حد يمكن 
يعطف عليّا 

يا ناس دي كلمة ساعات تصبر 
ساعات تغير 
ساعات تخلي الصبر يحلى في النفوس 
معرفش ليه مستخسرين الكلمة فيّا 

My weakness...
I feel sorry for it...
And because it's so precious to me...
I keep away of everybody I know... 
Because I am afraid that my weakness would scare them off!

And I want to stay that way until I calm down again... 
Until I am stronger... 
Until I am able to confront others!
I can not confront people...
With eyes that looks like it's happy for what's happening to me!

"People are there for each other" is a phrase that came to expiration... 
It had it's own time and it came to an end... 
Is it possible now for anyone to say "can anyone feel how I feel?" 

It's better if I live by my self... 
I will suffer a bit, but it's better than losing my pride... 
Or someone would feel sorry for me... 
Then might treat me tenderly!

Hey people... 
Sometimes one word would give a person enough strength to be more patient...
Sometimes it could make a difference...
Sometimes it could make patience sweeter and more bearable for suffering souls...
I am not sure why are you holding such a word back off me?
