LAMAH HALACHT MIMENU

Lamah halacht mimenu

WHY DID YOU GO AWAY FROM US

Why did you go away from us
oh how you left us
we are asking ourselves each time anew
what did we not do
we watered (you) and we hoped
suddenly you just left.

I was weak
I was sad
I was lonely
I couldn't develop
I was a weeper
I was poor
I had potential
and that's it.

Why did you leave the guy
he was alright
he would have got you a house and kids
our clock
knocks in biological (time)
and your head works in the theoretical.

Why did you go away from us...

I wanted freedom
I wanted advancement
I wanted to succeed
to work and to earn too
I wanted Tel Aviv
and to take up a hobby
I wanted a goal
and that's it.

Why did you go away from us...

I want adventures
guys with ponytails
in high societies
I want to sing songs
I searched for myself
in the mirror
and I didn't see anything.

The village is weeping
only yearning (for you)
all the children leave and don't come back
what, wha did we not do
we watered (you) and we hoped
and at the end you went away.
