Lyrics translation of different version:

The breeze of romance started blowing in my mind. Give me the peace of my Habibi(Beloved).You will say, 'Return my precious, forget the separation and the strangeness.'
My imagination will say, 'I wonder aimlessly, and my ambition will be happy. "And she appeared from the high towers,and said strange words...
Return my love,I don't have luck in this world. You are my love then, But it is impossible that you will be mine again.
Oh night,
Oh my love,
It is Finnished.
Salaam Habibi
From: SerpentHeadSoldier

Natacha Atlas - Cage=Gafsa The winds of love suddenly began blowing in my head Bringing me the greeting of my beloved Saying "return my precious" "The separatoin has been long while you are away" The impatience of my imagination wandered in a void And it was a happy wish for me She emerged from a high tower And said a strange word Return my love I don't have any destiny for me in this world
