I LIVE OPPOSITE THE WATER

 

I live opposite the water
Between fields and sand
The sky above me
In front of me a blue sea
Some times you live here
Some times you are dead
Some times the imagination here
Looks already as the truth
There are nights with a moon
In this East
There are days that this pain
Screams in the chest

I live opposit the water
The horizone is far
The skys are high
And the sea is deep
Beauty here has a taste
Of traces of war
Here are growing fury weeds
Between condolence flowers
Here the lips know
To smile at time
Here for years
The eyes cry on their own

I live opposit the water
And sceneries from before
Meanwhile they tell me
How they turn to ashes
You will find here in every stone
The remains of dreams
Here they carry suffering
In the celebrations basket
Here they drink sorrow
In love goblets
Here they sing stormy songs
Between burial prayers

 

אני גרה מול המים

Hebrew words

Note:
The song was written by Yosi Banai, who passed away in 2007. It carries a light, sad criticism on what is happening in Israel, and on the moments which have gone and will never come back.
Rita's new album Remazim is the first one she published after splitting with Rami Kleinstein, her husband, partner and composer. It is a new Rita: quite, simple and talking to her audience from the heart.
