What is the secret of this song?
Why did it touch so many hearts?
Why did it become the anthem for a movement?
Why was it worthy of winning a prize?
The song was a cry for freedom
Freedom from nonsensical restrictions
Freedom to express oneself
Freedom from oppressive rules
The words of this song expressed the desires of a people
A people who have suffered for so long
People who are beaten for how they dress
People who are jailed for what they say
The lyrics of this song expressed what was needed
To show the world what was happening in Iran
The days of carrying out injustices without others knowing is over
What is happening is laid bare for all to see
The words that bubbled up from the soul of a young man
Have reached the world
The song has been sung everywhere
The truth is there to be heard
This is the secret of this song
