To My Beloved Country, by hanaa wahba

كان نفسي اعاتبك واسمع منك رد يخفف اوجاعي
لكن عتابك هم يزيد علي همومي
عتابك يقلب المواجع ولايشفي الجروح
انت لا تحب العتاب
العتاب لوم والحب غفران
فانت اخترت الحب
بس بشروطك
بما انك رفضت العتاب فانت لم تعترف بالخطا
ولم تشعر بالجرح
ومن حقك تعيد نفس الموقف مرة ومرات
واذا عاتبتك يبقي مش باحبك
واذا ذكرت الجرح يبقي انا لا اعرف الغفران
واذا لم اتحمل يبقي اتغيرت من ناحيتك
واذا كلمتك مش هاتسمع لان الكلام تضييع وقت
عاوزين عمل جاد وانتاج
بلاش العتاب
القلب العاصي تاب ولو ان الجرح عاصي مش عاوز يطيب
وما يزال يدمي
ياخسارة يا مصر
