I would like to share with you all, this subtitled version in English.
...In memory of all the fallen children who are leaving the world everyday, victims of violence & cruelty...

What spring shall I sing about?
What spring Shall I talk about?
The pain that is coming out of me
is a scream of my worried heart
What spring shall I sing about?
What spring shall I talk about?
The people who are dying are
innocent but who is responsible?

We’ve dreamt of Spring of blossoms
The scent of which is spreading
it turns out this spring is indecisive
And has bloomed the bood of children and men

It began with vegetable cart
That ignites a revolution in the square
It was a blood red revolution
That killed in the name of religions

Big countries interfering
Each for its political gain
Sleepless became our nights
Defenseless were our seas
Barbaric Mongols were brought from distant villages
theirs heart filled with cruelty, and their religious beliefs absolute and never fading
Their roaring voices burst out
“You are warriors”, they were told.

The Arab world is your trench
Differentiate no color or faith,
people who chose their path
Have the right to live free
But the revolution has turned them back to slavery

What spring shall I sing about?
What spring shall I talk about?
A revolution of change is for progress
Not for moving farther backwards
I fear that this revolution will push us backwards
And make the whole thing a farce

I want my spring a vibrant green
A promise for a new summer
But they turned it into a red spring
Burying us with iron and weapons

After the spring shines the sun
Of a summer bright and warm
After the summer the autumn hears
The sound of a winter’s storm
Until the rain falls tomorrow
To wash our red lands clean
The circle of life goes on
With a loud human scream

They called us the Arab Spring
Yet a chaotic autumn bloomed
The West made it so the Arab nation
Could not make a white revolution

Today I fear the Arabs are doomed
To always let others lead theirs revolutions instead
To remain as naïve as boys reigning in preschool
As naivety is further spread.

What spring shall I sing about?
What spring Shall I talk about?
The pain that is coming out of me is a scream of my worried heart
What spring shall I sing about?
What spring shall I talk about?
The people who are dying are innocent
But who is responsible?
