Zolf bar baad – Mohsen Namjoo

A beautiful song and clip by Mohsen Namjoo


Let not the wind into your tresses or I will go into the wind

Let not seduction be your way or I will loose mine

Drink not with any old contender or I will drown in pain

Savor not your wine or I will turn red in sobriety

Lock not your hair or I will be locked in remorse

Twist not your hair or I will get twisted

Become not the rival’s friend or I will become mad with rivalry

Feel not for others or I will cease to feel

Open your face and I won’t need a flower

Stand tall and I won’t need the air of heights

Paint not the town red or I will shed blood for tears

Cherish not the other’s company or I will perish

Steal not the limelight or all light will leave me

Ogle not or I will melt beneath your gaze

Be kind to this poor suitor and come to my aid

For me not to appeal to the Messenger

Hafez will never turn away from you

For he became free the day he was entrapped by you.
