about

2nd single from Liraz - Israeli singer, songwriter and actress of Persian origins. Family of Liraz Charhi emigrated to Israel during the 70’s at the brink of the Iranian Revolution, and the inspiration from Persian culture and traditional Iranian music can still be heard in her modern renditions. Liraz has chosen her distant homeland and its culture as one of the most important topics of her artistic path. The role of women in the society and culture, perception of female artists and singers in Iran are the key issues for Liraz.

Lyrics & Music by Kourosh Yaghmaei
Produced and arranged by Rejoicer

Kourosh Yaghmaei - one of the biggest heroes of pre-Revolutionary Iranian music, composed the song. Throughout the 1970s he was one of Iran's quintessential guitar gods, rock stars and prophets of young, progressive generation of Iran. His career collapsed soon after the Islamic Revolution started. He got barred from releasing records, traveling, and performing live - like all other musicians and singers, especially women.

lyrics

Dear Shirin

At the corner of the sky
Written with great letters
Who ever has a beautiful lover
Has his place guaranteed in heaven
Dear Shirin, my soul my sweetheart
Be my sweet life and kiss me
But you’re walking away
and you are leaving me here broken into pieces
