lyrics

ايران پا شد، تو اطاق سردش
هيچکس نبود، بجز اون و دردش

Iran stood up in her frigid room
Save for her and her pain no one else was there

اينم يه روزي، مثه روزاي ديگه‌س
ميگن اما، آدم به اميد زنده‌س

This too is a day like any other
But they say that people live on hope

ايران از در، اومد بيرون که بره
لب حوض آب، تو پارک خاطره

Iran went out the door so she could go
By the reflecting pool, in a park of memories

تو شهر میگن يه جايي هست
که آرزوها مي گردن دست به دست

They say there is a place in town
Where wishes pass from hand to hand

يه جايي هست که خاطره يه سکه‌س،‏
يه جايي هست اميد هميشه زنده‌س.‏

There is a place with memory of an intimacy
There is a place where hope always lives

ايران، ايران تنها
ايران، ايران تنها

Iran, Iran all alone
Iran, Iran all alone

اون دور دورا، يه چيزي برق ميزد
يه سکه ديد، لاي بنفشه هاي زرد

Far, far away something glistened
She saw a coin among the yellow violets

سکهً قديمي رو برداشت و تو آب انداخت
(ميدونست، شايد اين، وهم و خياله)
لبخند زد و به راهش ادامه داد.‏

She picked up the old coin and tossed it in the pool
She knew this also could just be a delusion
She smiled and kept on going

يه جايي هست که آرزو يه سکه‌س،‏
يه جايي هست اميد هميشه زندس.‏

There is a place where a wish, an intimacy
There is a place where hope always lives

ايران، ايران تنها
ايران، ايران تنها

Iran, Iran all alone
Iran, Iran all alone
