lobna's song

In Taksim Square, on May 31st

I was sitting with everyone.

Then a gas smell. Things got mixed up.

Escapes… The aftermath is dark

I don't know if I'm actually good or bad

I do not know.

I'm happy that I'm alive

But I always… cry

Lobna, don't be afraid, generous to you

The life you believe in

Lobna, who did this to you

There can be no life

Lobna, with your mind, with your hope

You been there

Lobna, this

It can never be a crime

I turned 5 years old, became a little woman,

My goals, what I do is small

Is it the same woman that lives in me

Yes the same and different ...

My words are in my mind but they can't get out of my mouth,

I'm learning again

Everything has changed, I only have one thing that doesn't change

My life pleasure

Lobna, don't be afraid, generous to you

The life you believe in

Lobna, who did this to you

There can be no life

Lobna, with your mind, with your hope

You been there

Lobna, this

It can never be a crime

Good people…

It was May 31st, I was sitting with everyone

We were there at Taksim Square

Then a sudden smell of gas… and chaos all around

It was a stampede…. and settling darkness

I do not know, if I am okay or not at all

I really don't know

But I'm alive, and that's what I am glad for

Even though all the time, can't stop my crying

Lobna, hold on, the life you believed in

Is still on your side

Lobna what you've been through

Cannot ever be 'life', at all

Lobna you were out there

With reason and hope for all

Lobna the two being one can never be

A crime at all

I went back to being 5 ... A little woman

With baby goals and tiny tasks

The woman inside me, is she still the one?

Yes she is and not quite the same

The words are in my mind, but they simply can't

Just flow out, I'm learning how

Everything has changed, there's only one thing that has not

Which is my joy for life

Lobna, hold on, the life you believed in

Is still on your side

Lobna what you've been through

Cannot ever be 'life', at all

Lobna you were out there

With reason and hope for all

Lobna the two being one can never be

A crime at all

Good people…
