My Translation of a Fairuz Classic: I Loved You in the Summer




Fairuz: Habbaytak Bil-Saif [I Loved You in the Summer]

فيروز – حبيتك بالصيف
On a cold winter day
بأيام البرد وأيام الشتي
Where the pavement is a lake, and the streets are drowning
والرصيف بحيرة والشارع غريق
She would come from her old house
تجي هاك البنت من بيتها العتيق
He would tell her "wait for me," so she would wait in the street
ويقلا انطريني وتنطرعالطريق
He would leave and forget her while she withered in the rain
ويروح وينساها و تدبل بالشتي
I loved you in the summer, I loved you in the winter
حبيتك بالصيف حبيتك بالشتي
I waited for you every summer, I waited for you every winter
نطرتك بالصيف نطرتك بالشتي
Your eyes became my summer, mine became your winter
وعيونك الصيف وعيوني الشتي
Our meeting place my love will be beyond seasons and time.
ملقانا يا حبيبي خلف الصيف وخلف الشتي
A stranger passed by and she gave me a letter
مرقت الغريبة عطيتني رسالة
Written by my beloved with tears of sadness
كتبها حبيبي بالدمع الحزين
I opened the letter, but the words were missing
فتحت الرسالة حروفها ضايعين
Days flew by and the years sealed our fate
ومرقت الأيام وغربتنا سنين
And any trace of your letter was erased by the rain.
وحروف الرسالة محيها الشتي

Fairuz Performs in Lebanon this Month, Adds Extra Concert

Fairuz in concert at Platia Jonieh, Lebanon.  December 2011

The long awaited concerts of Fairuz started this week at Platia Jonieh, Lebanon, one year after her concert in Biel where her album “Eh Fi Amal” was launched.

Fairuz is performing for 4 nights this month: last Friday and Saturday the 9th and 10th of December plus 2 more concerts on December 16th and 17th--all at 8:30 pm.

It seems that all 4 concert dates were not enough for every single Fairuz fan out there and so many did not get the chance to buy their tickets because they were sold out so quickly. As a result, a fifth concert date has just been announced. That concert will be held on December 23rd, 2011 same place, same time, Platea, Sahel Alma, Lebanon.

You can watch a segment from this live concert (courtesy of Fairuz's daughter Rima Rahbany)  at this link: http://youtu.be/A5lvDubQpGA

Tickets are on sale at all Virgin Ticketing Box Offices.
