My first solo album was recorded in the basement of the legendary cultural center Lepakko in 1992, mostly at nights, when Clifters and Kingston Wall were not recording. Already back then we did English lyrics to this love song, against religion/prospirituality - in order to apply a subsidy for a music video, but as we didn't get it, the English version was never published.

 I ordered now an Arabic chorus from Morocco, but received so nice pronounciation demo that I had to include it.

لو احسست الحب ،لعرفت يقينا
لو احسست الحب،هوانايكفينا
لو رق هدا القلب، ما عاد يعنينا
اتباع اهالينا،إر ﻀاء الواعظين

Your goodbye kiss left me with this strange desire
’cause though your lips were cold, they didn’t put down the fire

So divine and so alive
I can’t forget
Wish I only knew
should I kneel down and regret

In sha’allah, in sha’allah... A Dieu!
In sha’allah, in sha’allah... A Dieu!

Men and women are living under the burning sun
Still the light of it isn’t same to everyone

All these walls and all these veils, and what you see
is nothing but a forest without a single tree

ANY TEMPLE OF LOVE, I CAN HEAR YOU PRAY
YOUR DESERT MIND COULD OPEN UP TODAY
TELL ME WHAT YOU SEARCH WHAT DO YOU HIDE
SOMEDAY YOU’LL FIND ALL THE LOVE INSIDE...

Now the drums are here, time to take our chance
My pilgrim soul is a rhythm in your sacred dance

So divine and so alive
I can’t forget
Wish I only knew
should I kneel down and regret

ANY TEMPLE OF LOVE, I CAN HEAR YOU PRAY
YOUR DESERT MIND COULD OPEN UP TODAY
TELL ME WHAT YOU SEARCH WHAT DO YOU HIDE
SOMEDAY YOU’LL FIND ALL THE LOVE INSIDE...

لو احسست الحب ،لعرفت يقينا
لو احسست الحب،هوانايكفينا
لو رق هدا القلب، ما عاد يعنينا
اتباع اهالينا،إر ﻀاء الواعظين

TELL ME WHAT YOU SEARCH WHAT DO YOU HIDE
SOMEDAY YOU’LL FIND ALL THE LOVE INSIDE...

God is only man without a god
and no man really knows him but God


* free translation of Arabic chorus:
If you felt love, you would know for sure
If you felt love, that our love is enough
If I touched your heart, we wouldn't care about
following our families, pleasing preachers
