Shahab Hosseini - Shahzadeye Roya

The Lyrics :

I saw him in my dream, near twilight

A golden Prince

Riding a white horse

He was coming down from the mountains

and his eyes, set my heart on fire

I hope secrets of my heart be revealed and my teary eyes become a sea 

One day I’ll be lucky and I will find the person who comes in to my dreams

The Prince of my dreams might be you

You are the person that i see in my dreams

And I woke up from the sweet dream, i don’t see him, oh god he is not beside me anymore

I’m dying from sadness, oh god i’m waiting every day and night

I saw him in my dream, near twilight

A golden Prince

Riding a white horse

He was coming down from the mountains

and his eyes, set my heart on fire….
