1. Todas las Palabras


Supongo que tú y yo nos encontraremos  que3talvez ni nos demos cuenta
tal vez suceda  sin prisa y sin viento en algún lugar de ayer
Presiento que tú y yo nos encontraremos y
tal vez nos parezca extraño
con la ilusión  sin prisa y sin voz, sin pasos que recorrer
Todas las canciones, todas las palabras  vienen y bailan
con el sonido que hace el viento cuando se acerca a tu boca y tu piel
mírame un instante, toca este silencio que ya se apaga
y abraza el aire que se vuelve cielo dentro de tu aliento y mi sed
es el aire el que se vuelve cielo dentro de mi sed
Supongo que tú y yo nos encontraremos  que
talvez ni nos demos cuenta
tal vez suceda  de prisa y con viento en algún nuevo lugar
Presiento que tú y yo nos encontraremos y
tal vez nos parezca extraño
con la ilusión  sin prisa y sin voz, con sueños por empezar
 
 
Todas las Palabras (All the Words)
I suppose that you and I will eventually meet
And perhaps without even noticing
Perhaps it will happen without rush and without wind
In some place from yesterday
I feel that you and I will meet and it might be strange
With the hope, without rush and without voice,
Without any footsteps to follow
All song, all words, come and dance
With the sound the wind makes
When approaching your mouth and your skin
Look at me for an instant
Touch this silence that is ending
And embrace the air turning into sky
Inside your breath and my thirst
It is the air that becomes the sky into my thirst
I suppose that you and I will eventually meet,
We might not even notice
Maybe it will happen quickly
And with wind in some new place
I feel that you and I will meet and it might be strange
With the hope, without rush, without voice,
With dreams to begin
All song, all words, come and dance
With the sound the wind makes
When approaching your mouth and your skin
Look at me for an instant
Touch this silence that is ending
And embrace the air turning into sky
Inside your breath and my thirst
It is the air that becomes the sky into my thirst

Bein Kirot Beiti (Within My Walls)
Here within my walls
Everything is shut
And no one will intrude
Faced with my silent walls, not a whisper will enter
Within the borders of my home
No obstacle lies
Within the room’s many paths
No sun will burn
And no shadow will dim
And no storm will gush
And no rain will wash
And no small opening will frighten
And not a thing can burn my walls
For everything is protected
From any menace at the gate
Within my walls
There is no one who will leave
Here within my walls
Silence lurks
Grey and comforting
Against the threatening street
Is a drawn curtain and candlelight
Here within my walls there is a memory,
A letter under the door
And not a voice to cry
And not a soul to answer
And no pain will remain
For my walls are a comforting white
And there are no stains of blood
Or bruises
Or tears of the heart
Of course all is foretold – you know
Within the walls no flower
Will wilt before its time

She’eriot Shel Ha’Chaim (Scraps of Life)
What is time telling me
It’s all scraps of life
And to live the moment
To begin collecting the shards
Maybe I will get out more
Start to speed up a bit
Start to get along
And make some noise
Maybe a different place
A more exciting place
Start to shake things up
And make them right again

3Mai Nahar (River Waters)
Flowing waters of the river
See
These are the days of your life
The waters of your life
Washed in the current
That begins with the first rain
Flowing water of the river
See
These are the streams of water
That will reach an anguished desert
With the falling silence
Even if I drink the entire ocean
It will not quench my thirst
For another day close to you
For another day in your arms
Even if I sit under the sun
Her rays will not burn me
As my heart burns in the flames of your love

5. Chalomot Shel Acherim


3Chalomot Shel Acherim (Other People’s Dreams)
For years everyone runs away
For years everyone returns
Chasing after the sun
Trapped within circles
Everyone is complicated
So what are you still dreaming for?
For years they are hiding something
For years everyone knows
A stone overturns
Throughout the days and nights
Everyone is talking
Why are you still here?
It’s better to run to the flames
Demand
Not ask
What are you afraid of?
Don’t think twice when he says
There is no better time
Bring on the day
For years they are asking
For years they are not listening
Keeping everything inside
It gathers and strengthens
And finally exhausts
What are you talking about?
Turns out you’re always silent
But inside everything is burning, on fire
All the words that vanished
You will find them in other people’s dreams
For years they open up
And remain shut,
Grasp the wind
Every disaster on the heals of another
One announced
As another is told
Returning to the open wound

 Ôdjus Fitxadu (With My Eyes Shut)
When I looked at the sky today
All I could see were stars
Telling me that you are gone forever, my love
Do beseech God’s angels
To come and get this woman
Who refuses to go on living without your love
Your love…
Sovereign queen over gloom
I seek a way out
Bearing the sword and the power of longing and pain
With my soul free in time
I vow to live with my eyes shut
And thus keep you with me,
With me…

We will try to get used to each other
We will try to trust

We will try to begin again

Come back to me

8. Rov Ha'Sha'ot


3Rov Ha'Sha’ot (Most of  The Hours)
Most of the hours that remained
Were filled with love
For most of the days that escaped us
She was with me and I was with her
In most of the songs that filled the room
I was a raging storm
And what is left at the end from the break
For most of the time is the silence
In most of the escapes and bursts of anger
I remember a frigid wind
In most of the winds and storms
At days end she returned
In most of the songs, still remember her face
Touching
Not touching
And a tear of silence
Through most of the tears,
The room’s reflection
As if commanding her life to end in bed
There are days left
And they are many
And they are hers
And there are hours that are filled entirely with her scent
And most of the time she remained
An when she wasn’t weeping
One way
Or another
I remain hers

3Min 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

10. Cada Día


3Every day someone talks to me about you
Trying to remove the pain from within my soul
Every day someone talks to me about you
Trying to explain to me that you won’t return
But at night, when there is no light
When everyone leaves
You slowly walk into my dreams,
There you are, you are not just a memory
I can feel you so close that you are almost real
But then you leave again
And when I wake up your absence is present
Every day someone talks to me about you
And they tell me time is like a turning wheel
Every day I could climb
After reaching the bottom if only I could also turn
But at night, when there is no light
When everyone leaves
You slowly walk into my dreams,
There you are, you are not just a memory
I can feel you so close that you are almost real
But then you leave again
And when I wake up your absence is present

11. Hakol Over


3Hakol Over (This Too Shall Pass)
I was already so far away from you
And no words remained for us to speak
And the wind swept away a lone sail
And made it lonelier still
Awake from every dream and every whisper
This too shall pass
All that was once and was forgotten
Today will not return
It is every wrinkle carved deep into the skin
That today burns deeper still
For there is no way back
And this too shall pass
Every day follows another
And night follows night
And as long as nothing changes on this earth
It is good we stayed together
And that we have someone with whom to share
Despite everything there is no way back
And this too shall pass
Every wound that healed and reopened
Today burns even more
It mends and restores itself
And again it all bursts forward, even stronger
Now it does not fall apart and crack
And this too shall pass
Do you remember how we once were?
Facing the strengthening wind
And after all the bad years
Many better years came to pass
Our time rushes forward continuously
And never stops

12. Nin'al Be'Mabato


3 A man withdraws into his world
Despite all the signs telling -
Come to the door,
Tomorrow has arrived
Get up and go out to the sunlight
To the open spaces
His gaze is locked
Even though she whispers in his ears
Words
Spells that she knows
Things he no longer does
He doesn’t feel
How the moon brightens his window
A man is thrown into his loneliness
Until he is struck deep within
And his entire life follows a winding path
From his first day to his last
A man dives within his inner depths
Until his life is within his walls
From suffocating air
To the blowing wind
And his song
Is the fire of his heart and flame of his life

13. Maisha


3Alone and listening to the light of the moon
An orphaned child cried to the shadows
Alone and listening to the light of the moon
Maisha prayed for someone to save her
 
She’d wandered for so very far
That she no longer knew her way home
The whole world knows her story
But no one knows her name
 
Moon, if you are there
Return so that she might be comforted
Moon, if you are there
Return so that she can sleep
 
Moon, if you are there
Return so that she might be comforted
Moon, if you are there
I am begging for Maisha
Return for Maisha
 
Maisha is a girl’s name in Swahili, but also means “life”.  This song is dedicated to the child soldiers in Northern Uganda.
