Arabic Lyrics to "Tahwak" by Sophia Marikh

في أعماقي أبحث
كيف الزمان والوقت يقاس

من ساعة ما عيناك آتت قلبي
ايقظت فيها الإحساس

كل شيء تبدل
وجوه الناس
أحبتها عيناي

اختزلت المسافات 
رسمت الحكايات
وأحببت الحياة

أنا إمرأة تهواك
وأعشق من قلبي
ولو أحببت من قبلي
لن تهوى بعدي

قلبي يسكنه هواك

كيف انساك؟

وتراني أرحل 
أنا بالخيال
في دفء الأشعار

وبحنان انت تأخذ يدي
وتسقط كل الأسرار

لن اسمح لغيري
منك مستحيل

لغيري لا مكان
فليقف الزمان
يا حبيبي الآن
أنا إمرأة تهواك
وأعشق من قلبي
ولو أحببت من قبلي
لن تهوى بعدي

قلبي يسكنه هواك

كيف انساك؟
