lū šalmāt ibrī ša libbiya (Goodbye Old Friend)

lū šalmāt ibrī ša libbiya (Goodbye Old Friend)
šukšudat qātī-ma (My hand reaches forth)
ilūta hašhat (Striving for divinity)

rāmī (My love)
lū šalmāt ibrī ša libbiya (Goodbye Old Friend)
ina kibsī mātika (At the steps of your kingdom,)
ištēnis nemme (We become one)

balātī (My life)
