Music Monday: Arash- Behnaz

Today's song is from Arash, an Iranian-Swedish singer, who has gained popularity not only among Iranians, but around the world as well. I remember hearing his songs on the radio in Germany. In this song, he's singing about his love, Behnaz. 

I think this song is pretty helpful to practice conjugates of words with you and I. And while we are on the subject, I read this article a while back about Arash's Persian accent and thought it was a really interesting analysis. 

(Unfortunately there was no good video to go along except this one. For a bit higher quality, click here.) 

Arash- Behnaz

behem begoo, behem begoo // tell me, tell me
doostam dari // you love me 
behet migam, behet migam // I'll tell you, I'll tell you
doostet daram // I love you

(refrain 1)
bad joor khater kham // I've fallen for you hard
bi to hicham //without you, I'm nothing
donyaye man faghat to-ee // my world is only you
ay yay yay yay

(refrain 2)
akhe Behnaz to // cause oh Behnaz do you
mikhayi ba man bashi? // want to be with me?
jaye to khalist // you're place is empty
vaghti azam doori // when you are far from me

(refrain 3)
aya Behnaz to // Behnaz do you
mikhayi ba man bashi // want to be with me?
delam barat tange // I miss you
hamzabune man // [companion] who speaks my language
zendegi birange bedoone to // life has no color without you

azize man, sheytoone man // my dear, my mischievous dear
jaye to khalist // you're place is empty
oomadanet che shirine // your coming is so sweet
bi to safa nist // without you there is no happiness

    If you really love this man (I don’t especially!), try him singing Behnaz to guitar in his recording studio in this Manoto TV docu. Starts at around 9:35:
