Oh Qusair! Oh you proud city! Oh you spring of freedom! I miss you loads! We’ve had enough of humiliation and poverty I miss hanging around in your streets And sleeping in your hands I miss the round-about Playing in our garden I miss the schools Where I used to study I miss Assi River And swimming in it I love your country side Your willows are so beautiful I miss the Qantara (the arch) It is surrounded by apple orchard I miss the grove The willows and the pomegranate I miss your olive trees Your apples and lemons I miss all the places Today and everywhere I miss the smell of your soil And meeting your dear lovers I miss you Qusair I became like a grown up now because of all those worries I swear by your love and your name We will repaint you With love and peace With goodness and security I miss everything in you Your people and your families This exile is killing us It took all of our energy Oh Qusair! We tasted bitterness But we need to have patience Those people who died, why? I don’t know why A man kills his brother And I don’t know what for For power and glory? For money and profits? Trust me, all of this will be gone Interests will come to an end Everybody will regret For every stone that was demolished Oh Qusair! Don’t be sad! I give you my soul and my blood Pray to God now To make our return soon Oh Qusair! You are ours And you will remain ours No matter how long it will take Security will come again Oh Qusair! Open your gates! Your dearest lovers are coming! Oh Qusair! Open your gates! Your dearest lovers are coming!

(Arabic below) Where are you Arabs? Where are you Muslims? Don’t you see what is happening to the Syrians? The massacres that happened The blood that was shed Thousands of martyrs Everyday and in every family Of the Syrian people and the world is silent Adults and children Christians and Muslims Injustice is everywhere Shame on us, humans That is the greatest shame “Silence in the face of injustice is complicity with the oppressor” Trust in God Protests in millions All presidents are vile The Syrian people is resisting Despite the injustice and the siege Don’t you see Hollande, Putin and Cameron Who destroyed Syria With their military arsenal You detained a child, you called him a terrorist The child who died under the siege, what wrong has he done? Oh mother! Oh Syria! I give you my soul and my blood I raise my voice out loud I am Syrian! I am not a terrorist! Listen to me closely No matter how long we live in exile We will come back and rebuild it Syria is calling Listen to me for God’s sake I want my children You will come back, Syria And we will rebuild you again I miss you! I miss you! I miss you Syria! I want to live in safety I want to play with my friends I want to go to my school And study with my friends I wish we live the old days I wish we become unified again To build our country Don’t you see all the tears Smell of blood is everywhere No one of you cares That is shameful, world! That is the greatest shame You killed adults and children You ruined our childhood You destroyed all of our dreams You stole everything from us The XXXXXXx the peace We want nothing in this life But to live in safety Without shelling or killing Without destruction or war We want to study again In the schools that we will build Syria is calling Listen to me for God’s sake I want my children Why? Why? Why? Why are you doing this to us? Why are you destroying our country? Why do you enjoy watching us suffering? Why did you take us away from our country? Why do you enjoy killing innocent people? When will this war stop To come back to God? When will the war stop To live with love? That’s when we kick off our inability To live in honour I love you my country Syria! وينكم يا عرب وينكم يا مسلمين مش شايفين ياللي صاير بأحوال السوريين المجزاير ياللي صارت الدم ياللي يسيل شهداء بالآلاف كل نهار وبكل عيلة الشعب السوري وانتو ياعالم ساكتين كبار وصغار مسيح ومسلمين الظلم بكل مكان والله عيب يا بشر والله أكبر عار اللي ساكت على الحق شيطان أخرس خلي توكلكم على الله مظاهرات مليونية رؤساء كلها كلاب والشعب السوري قاعد تحت الظلم والحصار مش شايفين هولاند وبوتين وكاميرون اللي دمّروا سورية بمدفعاتهم الحربية حبستوا طفل قلتوا عنه إرهابي شو ذنب الطفل ياللي مات تحت الحصار يا أمي يا سورية بفديكِ بروحي وبدمّي برفع صوتي وبعلّي أنا سوري منّي إرهابي اسمعني كتير منيح مهما طوّلت فينا الغربة رح نرجع ونعمّرها سورية عم بتنادي مشان الله افهموني أنا بدّي ولادي رح ترجعي سورية ونعمّرك من أول وجديد اشتقتلك اشتقتلك اشتقتلك يا سورية بدّي عيش بأمان بدّي إلعب مع رفقاتي بدّي روح عمدرستي وأتعلّم مع رفقاتي متمنّي نرجع متل زمان متمنّي نرجع نتوحّد حتى نبني بلدنا مو شايفين شلالات دموع وريحة الدم بكل مكان مافي حدا منكم مهتم والله عيب يا عالم واللهِ أكبر عار قتلتوا كبار وصغار حطّمتوا طفولتنا حطّمتوا كل أحلامنا أخدتوا كل شي منّا ال××××× السلام ما بدنا شي من الدني غير إنّا نرجع نعيش بأمان من دون قصف وقتل من دون دمار وحرب بدنا نرجع نتعلّم بالمدارس يلّي رح نبنيها سوريا عم بتنادي كرمال الله افهموني أنا بدي ولادي ليش؟ ليش؟ ليش؟ لك ليش هيك عم تعملوا فينا؟ ليش عم بتدمروا بلدنا؟ ليش بتحبّوا تشوفونا ونحن عم نتعذّب؟ ليش بعدتونا عن وطنا؟ ليش بتحبّوا تقتلوا الناس الأبرياء؟ متى ستسقط الحاء من حربنا لنعود إلى ربّنا؟ متى سيسقط الراء من حربنا لنعيش حبّنا؟ فعندها سيسقط الجيم من عجزنا لنعيش عزّنا

We, your children, my country, will redeem you, and our love for you is eternal We miss you, by God, and we pray for you the time of distress We, your children, my country, will redeem you, and our love for you is eternal We miss you, by God, and we pray for you the time of distress Oh oppressor, tell me what do you want? I left my land, and from that day I did not see the feast Every day I wait for the sun to rise after it sets Hoping it will shine someday and I'm sure We are not slaves, we are free born We got hit from the eye of the envious How our nation betrayed us We are not slaves, we are free born We got hit from the eye of the envious How our nation betrayed us We, your children, my country, will redeem you, and our love for you is eternal We miss you, by God, and we pray for you the time of distress We, your children, my country, will redeem you, and our love for you is eternal We miss you, by God, and we pray for you the time of distress
