PITOM ACHSHAV, PITOM HAYOM 
AHAVTIHA 

Hi belibi achshav, betoch libi,
k'mo harbeh tz'lalim
k'mo harbeh sh'vilim
k'mo ashan.
Hi rak sheli achshav, hi bechubi,
kenof harbeh alim
k'mei nahar k'chulim,
achshav hi kan.

Ahavtiha
ani yode'a zot pit'om,
ahavtiha
pit'om achshav, pit'om hayom.
Ken hi sheli achshav,
k'mo hashir,
olah hi mitochi,
olah bechol kochi,
k'mo hashir.

Ani kore bekol, ho, bnei adam
umer'chavei ei sham
vechol ruchot hayam, vehagalim.
Shm'u gagot ha'ir,

d'mamot vera'ashim,
shm'u koli.

Ahavtiha...

Ahavtiha...

Hashmi'i kol yaldah, hashmi'i kol,
dabri, sapri hakol
imri: hu k'sil gadol
hu lo yad'a, hu lo yad'a.

SUDDENLY NOW, SUDDENLY TODAY 
I LOVED HER 

She’s in my heart now, inside my heart
Like many shadows
Like many paths
Like smoke.
She is mine alone now
Like a bough with many leaves
Like a river’s blue water,
Now she is here.

I loved her
Suddenly, I know that,
I loved her
Suddenly now, suddenly today.
Yes she is mine now
Like the song.
Rising from within me,
Rising with all my strength,
Like the song.

I call aloud, hey, human beings
And open spaces somewhere
And all the sea winds, and the waves.
Hear, city rooftops,
Listen streets,
Houses and people
Silences and noises,
Hear my voice.

I loved her…

And you, where are you? Where? Where?
I don’t call your name,
I just wait expectantly for your reply
And if you should hear me
And my song
Bursting forth like the sea
Crying out to the world
If you should hear…

I loved her…

…then raise your voice, girl, let it be heard
Speak, tell all
Say: What an utter fool he is
He didn’t know. He didn’t know.
