By Ahlam Al-Awkabi

Tell me, tell me, tell me,

Tell me what I can do

With the days that follow

When you are with that fellow

When you do not know

That I love you too.

Tell me, tell me, tell me,

Tell me, where are you?!

Are you here, there? Or no!

I can't go, bow and stand so.

I want you to know

That I am not hollow

That is NOT bravado

Ohhh nooo.

Don't say it is just falsetto;

It is reality echo

That tells you my word

Which I cannot swallow.

It tells you that

My life, without you, will be ZERO!
