Bambi just discovered a deep and very beautiful Arabic song on her Lebanese-American internet radio station from LA. Bravo to Mr. Azeem for his talent!
From his YouTube page, Bambi learned that Azeem is a songwriter, singer, lyricist, music composer and producer. He also plays the drums, the piano, and the guitar. He was born in Beirut, Lebanon.
Mr. Azeem, Bambi fell in love with your song entitled “Zrouf” [“Circumstances“]. This is why she took the time to translate its lyrics to the readers of her blog who do not understand your mother tongue (and hers).
First, before singing, Mr. Azeem starts with those words of wisdom: “Who among us did not go through circumstances? Some circumstances are beautiful and others ugly. Some circumstances make us laugh a lot and others cry. In the end, we cannot escape circumstances”.
“Circumstances pass by us
Making us fall in love with someone who does not belong to us
Circumstances pass by us
Forcing us to live in stories that do not look like us
Sometimes, out of much sadness, we get attached to any hope
And when our heart is being questioned, it replies: I have circumstances
Sometimes our tears betray us and make us talk
Making the story complex and governed by circumstances
Circumstances take us out of warmth
To a place full of ice
At other times, circumstances promise us a more beautiful tomorrow
Along with a new hope”.
