Amr Diab translation

Is there anyone here with enough Arabic to tell me what Amr Diab's song "Tamally Ma'ak" means? It contains the word "habibi" a lot, so I presume he's singing to someone he has feelings for, but I don't know any Arabic beyond that.

A phonetic transcription of the lyrics is at http://www.lyricsdownload.com/amr-diab-tamally-ma-ak-lyrics.html

If it's too tricky to translate word-for-word, even just the general gist will do.

Thanks very much in advance.
