AFAR VE'AVAK

EFER VE'AVAK 

Yom aviv rechot lilach
bein chorvot ha'ir shelach
yom pafeh lidog banahar
betochi halev nishbar
sham haytah ve'einah
yaldutcha isha k'tanah.
anashim she'ish lo makir
ein afilu bayit sheyazkir.

Ve'im at nosa'at le'an at nosa'at
hanetzach hu rak afar ve'avak
le'an at nosa'at le'an at nosa'at
shanim veklum od lo nimchak.

K'chi me'il yihyeh lach kar
kesef kis, g'vish sukar
im yihyeh kashim hayamim
hizkeri bi lif'amim
ve'im zeh od mas'a no'esh
el hatz'rif, el hamigrash
b'msilat ha'ir hayeshanah
ish lo yechakeh batachanah.

Vei'm at nosa'at...

Mi yamtik leilotaich
mi yakshiv liv'chi'ech
mi yishmor tze'adaich bedarkech.

K'chi me'il yihyeh lach kar.

ASHES AND DUST

ASH AND DUST

A spring day the smell of lilac
Between the ruins of your city
A beautiful day to fish in the river
Inside me my heart is broken
There it was and it wasn't
Your child is a small woman
People that no-one knows
There isn't even a house that you'll remember

And if you're going, where are you going
Forever is just ashes and dust
Where are you going, where are you going
Years and nothing is erased…

Take a coat, it'll be cold
Money in your pocket, sugar crystal
If the days are hard
Remember me sometimes
And if it's a more desperate journey
To the hut, to the plot
On the path of the old city
No one will wait in the station…

Chorus…

Who will sweeten your nights
Who will listen to your crying
Who will stay by your side [while you are] on your way

Take a coat, it'll be cold.
