Alienation Melody

Poem by Naji Al-Majaresh (English below)

لحن الغربة

متى نودع الغربة ونبوس ترابك يا وطن

ترى لنا وصفة به الجروح تهدى وتكن

نسماتك تشرح صدر وبسماك نسمع لحن

لحن ما يسمعه إلا يلي مفارق وطن

عودوا أوتاره موجعة لا يعرف إلا الحزن

يعزف للغربة مقطوعة وتغني لأجمل وطن

ناجي المجاريش

When can we say goodbye to alienation and kiss the soil of our country?
Inside it we have a potion that heals our wounds.
Your breeze makes us breathe a sigh of relief, and we hear a melody in your sky,
A melody only heard by those who left his country.
Oud, with painful chords that knows only sadness,
Plays a melody of alienation, and sings for the most beautiful Country.
