Oh Furat

 

(Ya Abbas) x7

 

As I see my reflection in you, I would take death or pain 

I just want to get you, to the children of husain 

(Oh Furat) x3

 

1.    when I hold you in my palms 

my soul and my heart break 

as I see the children's face 

my two hands begin to shake 

I hear the cries of Al atash  

they are calling out my name 

I just want to get you, to the children of husain 

(Oh Furat) x3

 

As I see my reflection in you, I would take death or pain 

I just want to get you, to the children of husain 

(Oh Furat) x3

 

2.    my parched lips will stay dry 

despite three days of thirst 

until all of the children drink 

I won't drink a drop first 

In you I can just see their face 

my grief I cannot contain 

I just want to get you, to the children of husain 

(Oh Furat) x3

 

As I see my reflection in you, I would take death or pain 

I just want to get you, to the children of husain 

(Oh Furat) x3

 

3.    Throughout all Arabia 

I am known for my loyalty 

my name is the one called 

when there is a difficulty 

my heart can never bear 

To see anyone in pain 

I just want to get you, to the children of husain 

(Oh Furat) x3

 

As I see my reflection in you, I would take death or pain 

I just want to get you, to the children of husain 

(Oh Furat) x3

 

4.    Look at me I am the result 

of the prayers of ali 

my eyes did not open until  

my master hussain held me  

from the moment that I was born 

this has been my life's aim 

I just want to get you, to the children of husain 

(Oh Furat) x3

 

As I see my reflection in you, I would take death or pain 

I just want to get you, to the children of husain 

(Oh Furat) x3

 

5.    with one mission I have been sent 

towards the battlefield 

to bring water back and 

for my sword not to weild 

my master gave me this command 

and in his love I am insane 

 I just want to get you, to the children of husain 

(Oh Furat) x3

 

As I see my reflection in you, I would take death or pain 

I just want to get you, to the children of husain 

(Oh Furat) x3

 

6.    all my dreams and all of my hopes 

belong in that water flask  

if that ever gets pierced 

it will be the end of abbas 

I will not return to the tents 

because of the guilt and shame

I just want to get you, to the children of husain 

(Oh Furat) x3

 

As I see my reflection in you, I would take death or pain 

I just want to get you, to the children of husain 

(Oh Furat) x3

 

7.    an arrow is deep in my eye 

I have lost both of my hands 

the flask is clutched to my teeth as 

you spill out upon the sands 

I fall onto the ground upon 

my face from the horses reins 

I just want to get you, to the children of husain 

(Oh Furat) x3

 

As I see my reflection in you, I would take death or pain 

I just want to get you, to the children of husain 

(Oh Furat) x3

 

8.    As it brushed against his skin

To Abbas the water replied

Through you my name will be known

We will stay side by side

 so that I can kiss your feet 

In honour as your slave

for all of eternity 

I will circle your grave

(Oh Abbas) x3
