KOL YOM MATCHILAH SHANAH

ROSH HASHANAH 

 

Haraki'a od bahir
Ach ba'erev kvar karir.
Bachalon asher poneh layam
I-efshar ulai lomar
Shehakayitz kvar nigmar
Ach hashemesh mitayef yoter mukdam.

Al hadesheh bechatzer
Yom matchil lehitkatzer
Ach od k'mo davar lo hishtanah.
Im ata yedid emet
He'emad panim ka'et
Al tagid li she'avar kvar od shanah.

Lo, zeh lo yachol lihyot
Hashanim hen lo shniyot.
Im tabit tuchal lir'ot
Sheklum lo hishtanah.
Kol chushai mitkomemim
Ten li od kamah yamim
Lo hispakti shum davar hashanah.

Ein od geshem be'anan
Al tikfotz al kol siman,
Al tered lifnei hatachanah,
Al tar'eh li bayoman.
Tihyeh k'mo av rachman
Al ta'ir oti, ani od yesheinah.

Lo zeh lo yachol lihyot...

Shananananah, shananananananah
Shanananananah, od shanah
Shananananah shanananananah
Al tagid li she'avrah kvar od shanah.

EVERY DAY A NEW YEAR STARTS

NEW YEAR 

The sky above is clear still
But in the evening, thereís a chill.
From the window looking out to sea
It's impossible to know, maybe,
That summerís already over -
The sun just tires a little earlier.

In the yard, out on the grass,
The days are shortening fast
But it doesnít yet seem different.
If youíre really a good friend
Just help me and pretend -
Don't tell me another yearís already passed.

No, no, it canít be true -
Years arenít seconds on the clock.
If you look, you'll see, too,
Everythingís the way it was.
All my senses rebel in shock -
Give me just a few more days,
Iíve not done anything yet this year.

The clouds donít yet bring rain -
Don't point out the signs again,
Don't get off before your stop,
Don't show me news forecasts.
Have pity, like a caring pop,
I'm still fast asleep - don't wake me up.

No, no, it canít be true...

A year, a year,
A year, another year
A year, a year,
Don't tell me another year's already passed...
