ABA - Shlomi Shabat

Aba, chaver amar li lichtov shir alecha
Al kol ma shera’iti befanecha
Al hashalva lelo milim
Hanichochot vehatzlilim
Hakol haya kol kach yafe be’enaecha

Aba, zocher et hashvilim levet hasefer
Et kol hamanginot mitoch hacheder
Kshehikshavta ech ani shar
Im hamabat hame’ushar
Vehachiyuch hamistater ben sfatecha

Aba, al hadrachim sheko ahavta letape’ach
Ani halachti venisiti lenatze’ach
Velo tamid hevanti ech
Ki lo hakol holech
Ani shone mimcha aval me’od kamocha

Aba, habayit hayashan mizman enenu
Avarnu, hitkadamnu, hishtanenu
Umemal’im et echaser
Befartzufim domim yoter
Lema shekol chashav shecahser lo

Aba, al hadrachim…..

Aba, hazman avar velo dibarnu
Aba, slach li
Lakach li zman kdey lehavin – ata shayach li
Kmo she’ani shayach lecha
Kmo she’ani ohev otcha
Bo lo nishmor bifnim yoter unedaber

Aba, chaver amar li lichtov shir alecha

DAD

Dad, a friend told me to write a song about you
About everything I saw in your eyes
About the calm without words
The scents, the sounds
All of it was so beautiful in your eyes

Dad, remember the roads to school
All the melodies out of the room
When you listened to how I sing
With a happy look
And the smile hiding between your lips

Dad, the paths you loved to care for
I tried to win over you
I didn’t always understand how
Things will not always work out
I am different from you, but so much like you

Dad, the old house is no longer there
We have moved, have advanced, have changed
We fill the missing gaps
With more familiar faces
Whatever each one of us thought missing

Dad, the paths……

Dad, time has passed and we didn’t talk
Dad, forgive me
It took me time to understand – you belong to me
Like I belong to you
Like I love you
Let’s not keep it inside, lets talk

Dad, a friend told me to write a song about you

Dad, a friend told me to write a song about you
About all I saw within you
About the serenity beyond words
The scents and the sounds
Everything was so beautiful in your eyes

Dad, I remember the roads to the school
All of the tunes in the room
When you listened to how I sang
With the joyful look
And the smile that hid between your lips

Dad, on the paths that you so loved to cherish
I went and tried to succeed
And I didn't always understand how
Because it doesn't always work
I am different from you, but so much like you

Dad, the old house has been gone for some time
We've moved, gone forward,
And fill in what is missing
With similar faces
To what everyone thought was missing

Dad, on the paths that you so loved to cherish
I went and tried to succeed
And I didn't always understand how
Because it doesn't all work
I am different from you, but so much like you

Dad, the time has passed and we haven't spoken
Dad, forgive me
It took me time to understand- you belong to me
Just like how I belong to you
Just like how I love you
Let's not keep it inside anymore and let's talk

Dad, a friend told me to write a song about you...
