MENAGEV LACH ET HADMA'OT

Lokachat chatzi kadur lehargi'a et atzmah,
vezoreket mishpat shel himur:
"atah, o ani, o atah?"
va'ani betochi sagur, milotai kvar einan yotz'ot,
vechutz milil'chosh et sh'mah,
menagev lah et hadma'ot.

Tivki li achshav,
tivki ani omer,
zeh ko'ev, zeh yich'av,
aval besof zeh yishtach'rer,
tivki bimkomi,
ani kvar lo yachol livkot,
ani, tafkidi -
lenagev lach et hadma'ot.

"Tir'eh" hi omeret li, "arafel mechaseh et hakvish,
habe'ayot matchilot barosh,
hachaim mafchidim mafsik."
Va'ani betochi sagur, lo yachol shum davar lir'ot,
vechutz milil'chosh et sh'mah,
menagev lah et hadma'ot.

Tivki li achshav...

WIPE YOUR TEARS

She's taking half a pill to calm herself,
and gives (me) a sentence of wager:
"you or me or you?"
and I'm closed within, my words no longer come out,
and aside from whispering her name,
I wipe her tears.

Cry for me now,
cry I say,
it hurts, it will hurt,
but at the end it will get released,
cry instead of me,
I can no longer cry,
me, it's my job -
to wipe your tears.

"Look" she says to me, "a fog covers the road,
problems start in one's head,
life is scary enough."
And I'm closed within, I can't see anything,
and aside from whispering her name,
I wipe her tears.

Cry for me now...
