EILAT

Back in the times of King Solomon,
wisest of men
He explored these very mountains
And the sea and their secrets
His ships transported to her (the city of Eilat)
silver and golden treasures
The route for the perfume trade
led to her and shiploads of ivory

Chorus:
I always come back here
to the sunsets reflected on Mount Edom
To the seashore and to the quietude
unlike any other place
I always come back here
always excited, almost awestruck
At how the desert and sea merge
with the works of human hands

White sands, a date palm
and hot desert winds
A small dirt hut
overhanging cliffs and perilous drops
On the road going down
to the scorched land
With a hand-painted flag,
a reality is born a city in the Arava (-valley)

Chorus...

With an unseen magical attraction
the city holds out its arms
Attracting to its gates
a thousand young women
With sun, beer and sky palm trees
casting their shadows
Men feel free here
though they are caught for life

Chorus...

EILAT

De volta ao tempo do Rei Salom?o,
o mais s?bio dos homens.
Ele explorou por completo essas montanhas,
o mar e seus segredos;
seus navios transportaram para l? (Eilat)
tesouros de prata e ouro;
a rota do com?rcio de perfumes para l? conduzia
e aos navios carregados de marfim.

Coro: Sempre volto para c?
para o por-de-sol refletido no Monte Edom
para a praia e o sil?ncio
diferentes de qualquer outro lugar.
Sempre volto para c?
em geral excitado, quase aterrorizado
de ver como o deserto e o mar se fundem
com o trabalho das m?os humanas.

Areias brancas, uma tamareira
e ventos quentes do deserto.
Uma pequena cabana suja,
rochas salientes e desfiladeiros perigosos
pelo caminho afundam
para a terra devastada.
Com uma bandeira pintada ? m?o nasce
uma realidade, uma cidade no Vale de Arav?.

Coro: Sempre volto ...

Com atra??o m?gica e invis?vel
a cidade estende seus bra?os
atraindo para seus port?es
um milhar de jovens mulheres.
Com sol, cerveja e palmeiras
espalhando suas sombras
os homens sentem-se livres aqui
apesar de capturados pela vida...
