كل وعد وعدتهولك . هاوفيهولك ماتخافيش كل حلم هايجى وقته . وبأوانه ماتقلقيش
مش هاقصر يوم معاكى صدقينى
اجمدى دنا بقوى بيكى ماتضعفيش

.انتى نفسك كنتى حلم فيوم حلمته

فضلت اعافر فى الحياه لغايه ماطولته
وانتى زى ماكنتى واقفه فضهرى سانده

هاتسندينى و هاعمل اكتر م اللى عملته
اوعدينى ان انتى تبقى .. زى ضلى ماتبعديش
كل صعب عليا عدى ..وانتى جمبى ماهزنيش
الوحيده اللى فحياتى بتفهمينى

واللى بيها وليها عمرى الجاى هاعيش
