6. Min Nhar Li Mshiti (From The Day You Left)


Hey mama, why did you leave?
You are the soul and life of me
My tears flow in you, mama
You taught me and suffered for me
You are your own shadow, the light of my eyes
Sweet mother
Beloved mother
Only you, light of my eyes
How much you toiled and thought of me
I miss your shadow, the light of my eyes
Hey mama, light of my eyes
You left, and left me
Hey, mama
How did you leave me without
And I will die of worries day and night
It is me that you cried about
My entire life I will not forget you, my beloved
Where are you mother?
Where were you my beloved?
I am an orphan from the day you left
The enemies cheated me
Only God will comfort me

(From the Day You Left) (4:10) Lyrics Shimon Buskila | Music Idan Raichel | Produced by Idan Raichel, Gilad Shmueli | Arranged by Idan Raichel, Gilad Shmueli, Marc Kakon | Vocals Maya Avraham | Guitar Marc Kakon | Oud Shalom Mor Accordion Idan Raichel | Recorded by Val Gamarnik, Barak Levi, Yair Goren | Mixed by Yair Goren at Gil Feldman Studios
