PRI GANECH

Leil kochavim hasahar alah
at sham yoshevet bohah ba'afelah
sha'ah cholefet yom veshanah
ve'at adain lo mechakah
sha'ah cholefet yom veshanah
odech ovedet sh'vuyah ba'emunah.

Et pri ganech at tevakshi
mi lach yomar umi lach yashiv
mar ke'evech rodfim hayamim
notart levadech rotzah leha'amin -
Shehineh k'revah otah hasha'ah
shebah hivti'ach lashuv bachazarah
Shehineh k'revah otah hasha'ah
shebah hivti'ach lashuv bachazarah

Bedumiyah otefet hatugah
uvelibech notrah hamish'alah
sha'ah cholefet yom veshanah
ve'at adain lo mamtinah
sha'ah cholefet yom veshanah
odech zocheret ve'lo ma'aminah.

Et pri ganech...

Et pri ganech at tevakshi
mi lach yomar umi lach yashiv
mar ke'evech rodfim hayamim
notart levadech rotzah leha'amin -
Shehineh k'revah otah hasha'ah
shebah hivti'ach lashuv bachazarah
Shehineh k'revah otah hasha'ah
shebah hivti'ach ve'lo shav.

FRUIT OF YOUR GARDEN

It is a starry night, the moon comes up
You sit there staring into darkness
The hour passes, a day, a year
And you still wait for him
The hour passes, a day, a year
You are still lost, captive of faith

You ask for the fruit of your garden
Who will tell you? Who will answer you?
Your pain in bitter, days pass
You were left alone, wanting to believe
That here comes the time
When he promised to come back
That here comes the time
When he promised to come back

Grief is wrapping you in silence
The with stays in your heart
The hour passes, a day, a year
And you still wait for him
The hour passes, a day, a year
You still remember, you donít believe

You ask for the fruitÖ..

You ask for the fruit of your garden
Who will tell you? Who will answer you?
Your pain in bitter, days pass
You were left alone, wanting to believe
That here comes the time
When he promised to come back
That here comes the time
When he promised but didnít come back

 
Hebrew words

Note:
Song also sung by Aviva Avidan and also by Aviva Avidan with Eli Luzon.

Yoni Roíeh wrote the song about his classmate, childhood friend, first lieutenant Chen Brod who was killed in October 1985 while serving in the Israeli Army on the foot of Mount Dov in the North of Israel.
After Chen was killed, Yoni sat with a friend who asked him why he doesnít say hello to Chenís mum. Yoni replied that he didnít recognize her. In her sorrow the mother neglected herself. After the incident he came home and wrote the song.

The clip was filmed in Shirim Bakikar (Songs in the Square). This event takes place in Kikar Rabin in Tel Aviv on the evening of the Memorial Day to the fallen soldiers.
