Zaali Tawwal Ana Wayyak زعلي طوّل أنا وياك (Our Falling Out Was Years Ago) Fairouz

Our falling out was years ago

زعلي طوّل أنا وياك

I’ve been trying as of yet

وسنين بقيت

To finally let you go

جرّب فيهن أنا إنساك

But I could not forget

ما قدرت نسيت

If one day I come home and realize

لو جيت نهار ع بيتي لقيت

You’ve been there while I was away

إنك حبيبي بغيابي جيت

You would only see the trace

بتشوفن ما مرقوا إلا إيديك

Of your hands in the place

على هالبيت

As if you and your eyes,

كإنك حبيبي إنت وعينيك

Had just left today

هلق فليت

Our falling out was years ago

زعلي طوّل أنا وياك

I’ve been trying as of yet

وسنين بقيت

To finally let you go

جرّب فيهن أنا إنساك

But I could not forget

ما قدرت نسيت

I wish you were here and it was night

يا ريتك هون حبيبي وليل

There would be wine by candlelight

ويكون نبيد وشمع الليل

To avoid saying the words, I would write them on a paper

وأكتبلك ع ورقة حتى ما قول

I wouldn’t be able to say

ما بقدر قول

I wish you wouldn’t leave

يا ريتك مش رايح

I wish you would stay

يا ريت تبقى

Stay forever

تبقى ع طول

Our falling out was years ago

زعلي طوّل أنا وياك

I’ve been trying as of yet

وسنين بقيت

To finally let you go

جرّب فيهن أنا إنساك

But I could not forget

ما قدرت نسيت
