Translation

“Dream
and protect my dream
and people’s dreams
with emotions
and after exhaustion and stress
heads held high, we dream
we must dream
and I don’t plan on waking from my dream
let me live my dream
I’ll dream, and you wake

We dream and raise our voices and speak

Let’s dream, let’s dream, let’s dream
We dream, we’ll never give up
Let’s dream, let’s dream, let’s dream
Let’s dream

Through my people’s will and kindness
Millions demanded change
Peaceful, real, for me and my siblings
Its address is Tahrir Square
Through my people’s will and kindness
Millions demanded change
Peaceful, real, for me and my siblings
Its address is Tahrir Square

Let’s dream, let’s dream, let’s dream
We dream, we’ll never give up
Let’s dream, let’s dream, let’s dream
Let’s dream

We dreamed and sang out loud
And my voice reached far
We carried on & kept moving night after night
Every time with a new dream
We dreamed and sang out loud
And my voice reached far
We carried on & kept moving night after night
Every time with a new dream

Let’s dream, let’s dream, let’s dream
We dream, we’ll never give up
Let’s dream, let’s dream, let’s dream
Let’s dream

Peaceful, real, for me and my siblings
Its address is Tahrir Square
Peaceful, real, for me and my siblings
Its address is Tahrir Square

We dreamed and sang out loud
And my voice reached far

Let’s dream, let’s dream, let’s dream
We dream, we’ll never give up
Let’s dream, let’s dream, let’s dream
Let’s dream

We dreamt & sang
Our dreams united us
We wished that we
Will get closer
       We struggled & suffered
We wish that we will join hands together
We dreamt & sang
Our dreams united us
We wished that we
Will get closer
       We struggled & suffered
We wish that we will join hands together

Rejoice in the freedom
Rejoice in the freedom
When you see it in people’s faces
Rejoice
Finally your happiness has a basis

When the people will to live,
Destiny must surely respond.
Oppression shall then vanish.
Fetters are certain to break

My homeland, my homeland, my homeland,
You have my love and my Heart.
My homeland, my homeland, my homeland,
You have my love and my Heart”
