  • 1. Yored Ha’Erev (Evening Falls) Song Lyrics Download from iTunes

    Evening falls, flooded in silence

    In the windows of the houses there is a faint light

    A darkened dirt track leads to the house

    And the barking of dogs calls out hello

    Evening after evening I get lost

    And I smile to myself when I remember

    It’s not at all like what I thought it would be

    When I imagined that we would be grown up

    And it feels so simple and relaxed

    And there are no storms that bring you to life

    And it isn’t what I always dreamed

    But it’s good enough for me

    Do you even remember things we dreamed

    Beautiful places, distant cities

    Everything will always be in our favor

    And then we will live out all our dreams

    And don’t promise me that one day we’ll be more

    Such words washed with time

    It’s all a game, whole lives have already disappeared

    In a sea of lost people we were another wave

  • 2. Achshav Karov (Closer Now) Song Lyrics Download from iTunes

    Sitting on the shore facing the sea

    The foam disappearing into the sand

    The streams still flowing

    A beating heart remembers everything

    What there was during our childhood

    What we have become

    Big hopes carried by the wind

    Autumn of memories returned

    So everything touches me

    All the wonders of the day

    So come and stand for a moment

    Closer now, closer now

    A star falls close to us

    And prayers go out to it once more

    The light of hope envelops us

    It is forever, it will not pass

  • 3. Rak Oto (Only Him) Song Lyrics Download from iTunes

    He in his way, I in mine

    Him by himself

    And as for me, what will become of me

    I really wanted only him

    And as for him – who knows what’s with him

    He is full of good things

    And he is full of hidden secrets

    But I wanted only him

    And as for him – who knows what’s with him

    He in his way, I in mine

    He follows his path

    And as for me, what will become of me

    I always walk next to him

    And he passes on his way, on his own

    And he is night and he is day

    And he is full of little lies

    But I wanted all of him

    And as for him – who knows what’s with him

    And he is hills and valleys

    And he tells me tall stories

    But I wanted all of him

    And as for him – who knows what’s with him

  • 4. Ba'Layla (At Night) Song Lyrics Download from iTunes

    Maybe soon, maybe after the holidays

    Who knows, who knows

    Maybe when you no longer expect

    Who knows, who knows

    At this door or outside the window

    Everything is still waiting

    One morning or on an evening like this

    You will definitely see

    In a passing moment or in pouring rain

    Who knows, who knows

    When everyone is asleep, no one sees

    Who knows, who knows

    And if it I seems that it was, and is finished

    Everything is still waiting

    Even if it is bad and difficult and close to the edge

    You will definitely see

    If you ask, your heart will answer

    And At night, at night

    In the early hours

    Simple prayers are pleading

    At night, at night

    Waiting for answers

    To find another reason to hope

    A moment before you don’t even want

    Who knows, who knows
    And before you say it doesn’t matter anymore

    Who knows, who knows
    And if the taste is a little bitter and it burns the chest

    Then everything will wait

    You are here, there’s still time and everything will change

    You will definitely see

    If you ask, your heart will answer

     

     

  • 5. Sabe Deus (God Knows) Song Lyrics Download from iTunes

    God knows

    Everything that enters my soul

    God knows

    Where do I find my calm

    Only God knows

    How quiet was the morning when you left

    That day when you left me

    And forever you were gone

    God knows

    How cold our bed is

    God knows

    As my voice still calls you

    Only God knows

    How can I live in this sadness

    Knowing that you will not come back

    That is my certainty.

    But God willing

    You will be waiting for me

    Where it’s always spring

    But God willing

    I will come back to you

    Born again when I die

     

    There is truth in what you say
    A simple truth
    Against the guiding hand
    Just breathe facing the sea which will be here after us

    Day passes
    Night, which brings him a new beginning

  • 6. Ana Ana Wa Enta Enta (I Am What I Am) Song Lyrics Download from iTunes

    You are what you are

    And I am what I am

    Be yourself

    And let me be me

    Each of us and their world

    Living their lives

    You are free

    Until your freedom limits me

    You are what you are

    And I am what I am

    Be yourself

    And let me be me

    You are what you are (be yourself)

    And I am what I am (I’ll be me)

    Be yourself (be yourself)

    And let me be me (I’ll be me)

    Stop judging me

    And trying to change me

    I would be doing really well

    If you only stop limiting me

    Keep it in mind

    We are all born free

    We are both just human beings

    Who want to exist

  • 7. Ad She'Ein Yoter Le'an (Until There's Nowhere Left) Song Lyrics Download from iTunes

    Dreams such as these which are only dreamt from a distance

    To die out of longing for you

    Dreams such as these wake me suddenly

    Leaving everything and searching the town

    Dreams such as these – pain that will not let go

    Just to hold on all night until the next morning

    Dreams such as these which fall out of time

    Everything that is already not here, everything that is not yet there

    Dreams such as these – time brings no comfort

    Travel until there is no end, travel until there’s nowhere left

    Dreams such as these – the big sea of sadness

    Sail in it again, drown again in it every day

  • 8. Ha'Ru'ach Ha'Zo (This Wind) Song Lyrics Download from iTunes

    This wind which is blowing the waves

    She will blow for years after we are gone

    Andthe raging sea, and the whispering sea

    Will still be here come other days

    The sand on the beach which became towers for children

    Will still be here even when we are grown

    And this sun which sank so suddenly

    Will still light up other lives

    The wind doesn’t take everything

    Not everything is buried dead in the sand

    Washed by the ocean

    Better not to know everything

    To carry on, not to ask

    To fall, to get up, without remembering

    To give everything

  • 9. Mon Amour (My Love) Song Lyrics Download from iTunes

    Do not go away I would say woah
    Do not leave me alone my love
    Do not leave me alone again
    I would say it is difficult

    Do not go away I would say woah
    Do not leave me alone my love
    Do not leave me alone
    I would say it is so difficult

  • 10. Chaim Pshutim (Simple Life) Song Lyrics Download from iTunes

    On the day that all the streets will be in our favor

    Will be there for us and not for others

    We will then be able to go out hand in hand

    And see clear skies above us

    And you, you now don’t know

    But I have heard – there are good lives

    With all the people living without fear

    And staying together

    Simple life

    On the day that all the streets will be in our favor

    We will be able to go out at night and see only stars

    We will then be able to see by ourselves

    All that we did not know over the fence

  • 11. Olam Shalem (A Whole World) Song Lyrics Download from iTunes

    Now we again spread arms

    It’s all of everything

    In the big world

    When eyes are closed then you see everything

    A whole world, a big world

    And if we got this far

    And all that is left is to say that we lived

    That nonetheless it is possible

    That every tomorrow that comes is a new beginning

    And if we got this far

    And all that is left is to say that we lived

    That nonetheless maybe tomorrow will bring some kind of magic

    Maybe it will interpret dreams

    Now we slice the bread

    Everything turns simple again

    In the big world

    Every tear that chokes slips down the throat

    A whole world, a big world

  • 12. Detras Mi Alma (Behind My Soul) Song Lyrics Download from iTunes

    Perhaps you can’t learn

    To see what’s hidden in my eyes

    Perhaps you don’t understand the reason

    Of so many starry nights

    Perhaps you can’t understand

    Perhaps you just can’t understand

    And see what’s hidden behind my soul

    To feel what’s hidden behind my soul

    Perhaps you don’t want to try

    Perhaps you can’t hear

    If you don’t grab my words

    If my signal is not strong enough

    Perhaps you can’t decipher

    Where my smile is hidden

    Perhaps you can’t invent

    The glow of a caress

    Perhaps you can’t understand

    Perhaps you just can’t understand

    And see what’s hidden behind my soul

    To feel what’s hidden behind my soul

    Maybe you can’t and won’t even try to know what it is inside of me

    And the truth is that it does not matter the time it takes you to know who I really am

    If in one second, in one hug you are always able to decipher my soul

    What if, once in a while, you miss a sign

     

  • 13. Be'Karov (Soon) Song Lyrics Download from iTunes

    Soon I will be back

    To the quiet, to the light

    To the wind, to the water

    Soon I will be back

    To the warmth after the cold

    To the shore, to the sky

    Soon I will be back

    You will see, like one intoxicated

    To dive again into your eyes

    Soon I will be back

    Time we waited will pass

    And will bring me to you

    Because from afar

    Also here the sun sheds light

    Every day

    But changed

    Somewhat similar, somewhat different

    Because from afar

    The days and the nights

    Are awash with memories

    There, you are beautiful and you are laughing

    Soon I will be back

    Stopping at the end of the way

    At the street, at home

    Soon I will be back

    To close the final door

    And then to fall into your arms

  • 14. Im Ha'ita Ro'eh (If You Would Have Seen) Song Lyrics Download from iTunes

    And the truth is that I no longer long

    A whole life followed on

    I learned to fight

    I also learned to give way

    And the truth is that for ages I no longer think

    Of what could have been and if there was more

    I learned to calm down

    To give again, to receive again

    If you would have seen me now

    You would certainly have been proud of me

    Maybe you would have been less ashamed of me

    You would have seen that now I am already whole

    And the truth is that now I no longer remember

    Where the time has passed and disappeared to

    I have learned to cling on

    To forget everyone

  • 15. In Stiller Nacht (In Silent Night) Song Lyrics Download from iTunes

    In a quiet night,
    In the first watch,
    A voice began to complain,
    The night wind
    Sweet and gentle
    Carried the sound to me

    From bitter sorrow
    And sadness
    My heart melted away,
    The little flowers,
    With pure tears
    I watered them all.

    The beautiful moon
    Wants to set,
    Not wanting to shine anymore on the suffering.
    The stars
    Stopped shining
    They want to cry with me.

    No birds singing
    Nor joyful sound
    Can be heard in the air,
    The wild animals
    Also grieving with me
    In rocks and crevices.

    Wherever I go,
    Wherever I turn my eyes,
    My worries will follow me

    Haunting me ’til the end,
    Hidden deep in the heart.

    The beautiful moon
    Wants to set,
    Not wanting to shine anymore on the suffering.
    The stars
    Stopped shining
    They want to cry with me.

  • 16. Or Ka'ze (A Light Such As This) Song Lyrics Download from iTunes

    A few stars have now fallen

    I am lost for words

    Years pass us by

    Meeting people

    Palaces and mountains

    And building towers

    Rising and falling now

    Between all the paths

    I also found myself one star

    He will whisper things to me

    He will comfort with words

    He will stay through time

    A light such as this

    That remains

    Doesn’t burn out

    When the wind blows

    When pressed and in difficulty

    Apologize, comply

    Will laugh if you cry

    Will stay if you want
