    Official Lyrics:
    "This is my new favorite song.. it means so much to me. I’m half Algerian and growing up in America has created a cultural and religious divide between me and my dad’s family. I wrote this song in an attempt to unify us by mixing English, French, and Arabic, and to ask them to accept me and love me as I am."
    Produced by Stelios
    Mixed by Stelios

    [Verse 1]
    "Inshallah," that's what you say
    You think I lost my faith
    You won't speak my name
    Forbidden, won't see you again
    I chose a life of sin
    Wish you could forgive
    I got sharp edges, I get defensive
    Too lost to care, middle finger in the air
    I'm sorry that I scared ya
    Be my protector when I cross the Sahara
    Take me there, take me there and
    Love me like a desert rose
    Hold me like you can't let go
    Keep me safe when I come home
    Love me like a desert rose
    [Verse 2]
    Regarde nous
    Les mêmes joues
    Toi et moi, tous les deux les mêmes
    Plus de joie, en rentrant dans le bled

    I got sharp edges, I get defensive
    Too lost to care, middle finger in the air
    I'm sorry that I scared ya
    Be my protector when I cross the Sahara
    Take me there, take me there and
    Love me like a desert rose
    Hold me like you can't let go (Like you can't let go)
    Keep me safe when I come home
    Love me like a-
    Love me, that's all I want (Habibi)
    Hold me, is that too much? (Habibi)
    Keep me safe when I come home (Habibi)
    Love me, ah, love me like a-
    Love me like a desert rose
    Hold me like you can't let go
    Keep me safe when I come home
    Love me like a-
    Like a desert
    Habibi, habibi (Habibi)
    Habibi, habibi, ah (Habibi)
    Habibi, habibi, ah
    Love me
    Won't you love me?

    1:50 she sings in French ! Stop saying it's arab, the song is in english & french she just say some arab words here & there . Her mother was french & dad algerian, also Algeria used to be french back in the days so even since its independance most peaople out there still speaks french.
