(Lyrics & Music: Rahbani Brothers)
Long time ago, when I was a young girl, a boy used to come from the nearby woods
His name was Shadi
Shadi and I used to play in the snow, we sang for each other and ran in the wind
We carved our names in the rocks and the wind bit our faces.
One of these days, the world was smothered with fire
some people began fighting against other people
and the fighting spread to our hills
Shadi ran to watch
I got scared, I yelled: Shadi where did you go, Shadi
He disappeared, he could not hear me, the valley took him in
since that day I never saw him again
Shadi was lost for ever
Snow fell and melted away for twenty times
I grew up and Shadi remained the boy I knew, playing in the snow.
