(the son)
I remember
You giving me strength
Although you ran away,
I was privileged to forgive
You already sang all the words
I was left with silence

(the son)
Do you remember
Hugging me one morning
Telling me:
Remember you are now
The man of the house
Maybe you forgot
I was only a child
Your child

(the father)
What you dont really know
That i sang for you in bed
Until morning came
I was yours,
So yours, you hear?
I sang to you until morning came

(the father)
Strength,
You give me strength
To remember
What was good over the years
Something good
Happens within me
(the son)
Happiness
Is you being with me now
I will take it with me,
For my whole life

(the father)
Do you remember me
Not really being there
I walked naked
Only with a kings crown
On my head
I tried so hard
To cover
For what was missing
I also remember
Hugging you one morning
Saying a sentence
That cost me dearly
Maybe i forgot
You were only a child
My child

(the son)
What you dont really know
I heard you singing to me
Every night in bed
I was yours,
So yours,
So listening
How you sang for me
Until morning came

Strength,
How you give me strength
To remember
What was good
Over the years
Something good
Happens within me
Happiness
Is you being with me now
I will take it with me,
All my life

 

Hebrew words

Note:
Ishai Levy, one of Israel's most talented singers, couldn't deal with his success and fell heavily into drugs.

Shir Levy is Yshai Levy's son. While Yshai was married he had an affair and Shir was born out of that affair.

Shir was raised by his grandparents and until he was a teenager, didn't know Yishai is his father.

Today Shir is a talented and popular singer and after many years of no relationship is now in contact with Yishai.
This beautiful song tells their story.
