Superstitions – ( Khorafat )

Gâhi vaqtâ ye tori az avaleš mitarsi

Sometimes, somehow in the beginning you are scared

Ke nakone be talxi haqiqateš beresi

That you’ll finally discover the bitter truth

Gâhi vaqtâ miofti yade qadimâ

Sometimes, you remember the past by yourself

Yâde un kandeh kârie ru afkâre mâ

You remember the engraving in your thoughts

To yâdet xub miâd ke bâhât če kâr kardand

You remember exactly, what they’ve done to you

Az to ye âdam kuki vâse in donyâ sâxtan

How they made a wind-up human out of you

Hanuzam hanuzam gâhi vaqtâ mitarsi az harfe unâ

Still, you are scared of their words

Unâi ke mixandan ye sare be mâ

Of those who keep laugh at us

Sâyehâ donbâletand

The shadows follow you

Tâ az to pul dar ârand

Making money out of you

Hanuzam ba xorâfât

Still, with these superstitions

Az to pul misâzand

They’ll make money out of you

Gâhi vaqta milarze tamâme tanet

Sometimes, your whole body shivers

Tuye kudaki četor xam kardanet

Just like when you were a child

Buye xuno pul midád hameye nasihatâ

All their advices, had a taste of money and blood

Hanuzam sâye dâran ru sare mâ

And still their shadows are in our heads

Sâyehâ donbâletand

The shadows follow you

Tâ az to pul dar ârand

Making money out of you

Hanuzam ba xorâfât

Still, with these superstitions

Az to pul misâzand

They’ll make money out of you

They are laughing at us…

Hanuzam ba xorâfât

Still, with these superstitions

Az to pul misâzand

They’ll make money out of you
