whispers and cries

aah! min zaman

it's all happening too fast

ya leyli, ya haiati

aah! when was all this?

when that all began?

when will it end?

aah!

ya... ya leyl... ya...

c'est la vie

kan, min zaman, min zaman,

min zaman

refrain:

kan fi zaman, min zaman, ya zaman

sabatalef sana wa el wakt gambina

sabatalef sana wa el wakt waktina

ya... ya... haiati...

i love you so much

it's going too fast

ana bahebak awi

el haiati

c'est la vie

c'est la vie

ya... ya... ya... ya... ya...

repeat refrain

aaah!

sabatalef sana wa el wakt waktina

ya... ya...

sabatalef sana wa el wakt gambina

sabatalef sana wa el wakt waktina

flesh, all dust, all

aaah!

c'est la vie

ya leyl, ya leyl

ya... ya... ya...

ya habibi

aaaahh!

c'est la vie, ya...

aaah! aaah!

whispers and cries

ed dounia kéda

ya dounia helwa

c'est la vie

Can you tell me which language it is ?

thanks

Update:

i know it is a different language.

JMJ likes to use words/language/sounds from all cultures in his music, so I don`t know if this is a legit language or not.

D/l the song (legally or not, i really dont care) and give it a listen.

    The only French line in the song is, 'C'est la vie'

    The rest is in Arabic and English.

    For example the part:

    ya... ya... haiati...

    i love you so much

    it's going too fast

    ana bahebak awi

    el haiati

    c'est la vie

    c'est la vie

    means

    my life

    I love you so much

    it's going too fast

    I love you a lot

    the life

    it is the life

    it is the life

    I can't be bothered to translate it all but I'll just translate some words quickly:

    ya leyl - the nights

    sabatalef sana wa el wakt waktina - 7 thousand years and the time is our time

    sabatalef sana wa el wakt gambina - 7 thousand years and the time is by our sides

    ya dounia helwa - the pretty world

    Hope I've helped you!

    The title is French and it means "That is life." That is all I know. The lyrics seem like they are in a different language though.
