Forgive me

I could not do anymore, I promise my hands were tied 

As I lay you in your grave all alone tonight 

My sister I知 sorry, please forgive me 

 

1.     I raised you with so much love, I fed you with my hands 
I could never see you cry, Your wish always was my command 
I used to play with you, As though we were best friends 
Today I am burying, You in this foreign land 
You were always frightened, Of the dark when it was night 
Forever you値l lay in, A prison where there痴 no light 

My sister I知 sorry, please forgive me 

 

I could not do anymore, I promise my hands were tied 

As I lay you in your grave all alone tonight 

My sister I知 sorry, please forgive me 

 

2.     The palace where we were stood, Our necks and our hands in chains 
The enemy asked are You the daughter of Hussain 
A tear rolled down your cheek, As they laughed at his pain 
They pointed and told us, To come forward by our names 
An evil man asked for you, To be a maid for him 
My body began to shake, But I could not move a limb 

My sister I知 sorry, please forgive me 

 

I could not do anymore, I promise my hands were tied 

As I lay you in your grave all alone tonight 

My sister I知 sorry, please forgive me 

 

3.     Is this how this brother, Will get to say goodbye 
Your body is scolded, so sunken are your eyes 
The slaps you have on your face, The sound of your final cries 
the state of your body, Will haunt me until I die 
As I use my bare hands, To make a grave in the ground 
How can I forgive myself, You don稚 even have a shroud 

My sister I知 sorry, please forgive me 

 

I could not do anymore, I promise my hands were tied 

As I lay you in your grave all alone tonight 

My sister I知 sorry, please forgive me 

4.     Our father always prayed, For a daughter like you 
His one in a million, Like whom there are so few
He found so much peace and love, And nurtured you as you grew 
He痴 crying on that spear, As you池e beaten black and blue 
I watch on in horror, and see him on the spear 
As stones are thrown at him, His face wet with blood and tears

My sister I知 sorry, please forgive me 

 

I could not do anymore, I promise my hands were tied 

As I lay you in your grave all alone tonight 

My sister I知 sorry, please forgive me 

 

5.     We watched in the courtyard, Yazid was in his seat 
Our father痴 head was kept, On top of the balcony 
The tyrant took a stick, and hit our father痴 teeth 
You then opened your arms, And said come to me please 
His head lifted from that place, And landed in your laps 
You held on to his head, As your face was being slapped

My sister I知 sorry, please forgive me 

 

I could not do anymore, I promise my hands were tied 

As I lay you in your grave all alone tonight 

My sister I知 sorry, please forgive me 

6.    
The night of the orphans, When the tents were all ablaze 
You entered the battlefield, Where bodies lay like a maze 
You found our father, On his chest your cheeks you placed 
You found peace for moments, Before we were dragged away 
We walked on a long road, Where nights turned into days 
And tied to a camel, your body was in chains

My sister I知 sorry, please forgive me 

 

I could not do anymore, I promise my hands were tied 

As I lay you in your grave all alone tonight 

My sister I知 sorry, please forgive me 

 

7.     Those nights in the dungeons, Where you weren't allowed to cry  
You stared hopefully at, the doves as they used to fly 
You wanted to go home, And leave all this hurt behind 
If you asked for freedom, You would get slaps in reply 
I'd say to console you, That we will go home soon 
But now you are laying, Alone in a darkened tomb

My sister I知 sorry, please forgive me
