Oriental Imagination

Farid el Atrache - ESL

 

(CAPO @ IV)

Am E Am     Am E Am     A Dm Am      Am E7 A

Reality still haunts me, it comes again just to hurt me   

There is no pity above, for a defeated love

But my imagination, can in this incarnation

Reverse all guilt and damnation, and just fly on with the wind.

 

A E     E A     A E     E A

The vastness of imagination I have driven

This Hell I easily can turn into an Eden

I'm breathing in the light and tasting of the freedom

My eyes are gazing high onto a whole new kingdom

 

A Bm     Bm A     Am E      Am E Am

The rainbow once again above my head is stretching

The ancient door of mystery my dreams is fetching

This oriental imagery my soul is catching 

For everyone, space in this promised land

 

But my imagination, can in this incarnation

Reverse all guilt and damnation, and just fly on with the wind.

 

Am E7 Am     Am E7 Am     A Dm Am      Am E7 Am

Ya zaharattan fi ha'iaii ra'ai tu 'a fi fu 'adi

Ya zaharattan fi ha'iaii ra'ai tu 'a fi fu 'adi

Gan'at al'ai ha'leiali wa'azbalat hal'ayati

Wa'sha'alat hal oyun, gamat asich ron gubul

      TRANSLATION

      Iím staying up late thinking of you

      In my imagination nights have passed by.

      (My) eyes have been working, sorcery of the eyelid.

 

REPEAT I & II
