I hated you!


OK, that's one of the hardest songs I ever translated, it's might sound stupid or meaningless because it's was translated, and I believe that poetry loses it's power when it's translated.

Anyway this song was a massive hit in the year 1999 and Latifa (the performer) won many awards because of it, prince of Dubai Mohammed Bin Rashed Al Maktoom wrote a reply to the lyrics and dedicated it to Latifa!
The song about when you love someone and later you find out that he was acting that he or she loves you.
A mix of Rock guitar with Arab instrument "Mizwid", just amazing.
There was a rumor that this song based on a true story (Obviously a very bad love story) Latifa been through.

Your love is false, you have no conscience...
Yes I loved you, I adored you and now I hated you!
I hated you because you are just a mask and a play starring with agony!

You are a lie in the shape of an angel...
For many years and nights my life was devoted to you...
I am writing the story of your love with my tears while you are wiping it off with a pen's stroke!

You successfully won the bet of your friends...
And my love story became a joke which you shared with them...
Go and laugh with them until the morning and my God help me!

You've entered my life by a mistake...
You are just a selfish person and that's why I hated you without compromise...
Oh God, you are the compensation and the judge!

Your love is false, you have no conscience...
Yes I loved you, I adored you and now I hated you!
I hated you because you are just a mask and a play starring with agony!

Latifa perorming "Mawwal"

غرامك مزيف ضمير عدم...
هويتك...عشقتك...كرهتك ...نعم
كرهتك لأنك مجرد قناع و كم مسرحية بطلها الألم

يا كذبة يا انت بهيئة ملاك...
سنين و ليالي حياتي فداك...
انا اكتب بدمعي حكاية هواك و انت بتمحىي بجرة قلم!

رهان أصدقائك كسبته بنجاح...
و أسراري صارت حكاية و مزاح...
روح إضحك معاهم حتى الصباح و آه من الملامة و آه من الندم

لأنك دخلت بحياتي غلط...
و مين انت إلا أناني فقط...
كرهتك و ما عندي أي حل وسط و يا رب انت العوض و الحكم

تؤدي لطيفة موال الصالحي
