Baraye

For a dance in the alley; For breaking the taboo of kissing in public; For our sisters, mine and yours; For a change in the minds of the fanatics; For father's shame for empty pockets; For the longing for a normal life; For the dreams of the dumpster kids; For this command economy; For this polluted air; For the dying Tehran's landmark trees; For the Persian cheetah (Pirouz) about to go extinct; For the unjustly banned street dogs, For these non-stop tears; For the loss of the downed passengers; For the faces that smile no more; For the school kids, for the future; For this forced road to paradise; For the jailed beautiful minds; For the neglected Afghan refugee kids; For this list that goes on and on; For these meaningless hostile chants; For the rubbles of the bribe-built houses; For feeling peace of mind; For the rise of sun after long-lasting nights; For the tranquilizers and insomnia; For man, homeland, prosperity; For the girl who wished she was a boy; For woman, life, freedom.

A beautiful song that is now the soundtrack of the protests in Iran. I cried!
