Sting, “Desert Rose”

هدي مدة طويلة
hadaee mada tawila
وانا نحوس انا وعلا غزالتي
wa ana nahos ana wahala ghzalti
(Oh night, oh night–
It has been a long time,
and I am looking for myself and my loved one.)

I dream of rain.
I dream of gardens in the desert sand.
I wait in vain.
I dream of love as time runs through my hands.

I dream of fire.
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire.
