    تکیه گاه
    Tekiyeh Gah
    Someone to Rely on


    ای همه آرامشم از تو, پریشانت نبینم
    Ey hameh ârâmesham az tow, parishânat nabinam
    O (you), the wellspring of my tranquility, how could I see you perplexed?
    چون شب خاکستری سر در گریبانت نبینم
    Chon shab-e khâkestari sar dar garibânat nabinam
    How could I see you forlorn as a gloomy night?
    ای تو در چشمان من یک پنجره لبخند شادی
    Ey tow dar cheshmân-e man, yek panjereh labkhand-e shâdi
    O you, in my eyes (you are) the one who is like a window to merry smiles
    همچو ابر سوگوار این گونه گریانت نبینم
    Hamcho abr-e soogvâr, in gooneh geryânat nabinam
    How could I see you so tearful as a mournful (dark) cloud?
    ای پر از شوق رهایی رفته تا اوج ستاره
    Ey por az shogh-e rahâyi, rafteh tâ ojeh setâreh
    O (you), filled with the zeal of liberation, (you are the one) who has wanted to reach the stars
    در میان کوچه ها افتان و خیزانت نبینم
    Dar miyân-e koocheh hâ, oftân o khizânat nabinam
    How could I see you listless, wandering through the lanes?

    مرغک عاشق کجا شد شور آواز قشنگت
    Morghak-e eshghat kojâ shod shoor-e âvâz-e ghashangat
    O lovebird, why did your passion for chanting fade away?
    در قفس چون قلب خود هر لحظه نالانت نبینم
    Dar ghafas chon ghalb-e khod har lahzeh nâlânat nabinam
    How could I see you endlessly weeping as my own heart?

    تکیه کن بر شانه ام ای شاخه نیلوفرینم
    Tekiyeh kon bar shâneh am ey shâkheyeh niloofarinam
    O (you) my lily, (rely on me and) put your head on my shoulders
    تا غم بی تکیه گاهی را به چشمانت نبینم
    Tâ gham-e bi tekiyeh gâhi râ be cheshmânat nabinam
    How could I see the sorrow in your eyes, for the absence of someone to rely on?

    قصه دلتنگیت را خوب من بگذار و بگذر
    Ghesseh deltangiyat râ khoob-e man bogzâr o bogzar
    My compassionate one, leave your tale of sadness and let yourself go
    گریه دریاچه ها را تا به دامانت نبینم
    Geryeh daryacheh hâ râ tâ beh dâmânat nabinam
    How could I see you (as a gracious sea) obsessed with the griefs of lakes (and rivers)? *
    کاشکی قسمت کنی غمهای خود را با دل من
    Kashki ghesmat koni gham hâ-ye khod râ bâ del-e man
    I wish you would share your sorrows with my own heart
    تا که سیل اشک را زین بیش مهمانت نبینم
    Tâ keh seyl-e ashk râ zin bish mehmânat nabinam
    How could I see the flow of tears running through your face?

    تکیه کن بر شانه ام ای شاخه نیلوفرینم
    Tekiyeh kon bar shâneh am ey shâkheyeh niloofarinam
    O (you) my lily, (rely on me and) put your head on my shoulders
    تا غم بی تکیه گاهی را به چشمانت نبینم
    Tâ gham-e bi tekiyeh gâhi râ be cheshmânat nabinam
    How could I see the sorrow in your eyes, for the absence of someone to rely on?

    تکیه کن بر شانه ام ای شاخه نیلوفرینم
    Tekiyeh kon bar shâneh am ey shâkheyeh niloofarinam
    O (you) my lily, (rely on me and) put your head on my shoulders
    تا غم بی تکیه گاهی را به چشمانت نبینم
    Tâ gham-e bi tekiyeh gâhi râ be cheshmânat nabinam
    How could I see the sorrow in your eyes, for the absence of someone to rely on?
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    * In this line the poet analogises the beloved to a gracious sea. Those lakes (and rivers) which are connected to the sea, signify the sorrows and pains from the others. It means that the beloved is so kind that she is easily affected by the sorrows and pains of people around her.

    Owles,

    This song is another precious gem that you've introduced to us.

    Kheyli mamnoon!

    Maybe I'm wrong here, but I also see this song as very emotional political statement hidden behind a veil of a love song, where the beloved is - in fact - Iran.
    But if I'm wrong about it - please correct me asap.

    However, no matter what interpretation keys one chooses to open this song with it's a hauntingly beautiful piece of art.

    Daghighan dooste khoobam, hamishe ma ro be taraj bordan o har bar az bare ghabl badtar boode. Omidvaram be ghole Dr. Iraj Razmjoo va az zaboon e shadravan Hayedeh:

    "Delam mikhad ye roozi baade salha
    Parastooye saadat ro bebinim
    Nemikham bish az in too soorate ham
    neshoone yaas o vahshat ro bebinim"

    English

    "I wish that someday after so many years
    We will see an auspicious swallow (which will bring happiness to us)
    I don't want to see on each other's face
    the sign of terror and despair anymore"

    In countries where people have to suffer so much , art , literature and music are often a means to read between the lines,
    a green highway through inexplicable inhumanity and thus give them hope for a better future.
    Insallah!

    So true, Amaryn!
    The art can help nations survive.
    The art can help individuals survive, too.
    A truly God's gift!
