Chozer lab'didut ve'lo motze otach,
hacheder meyutam mehamag'a shelach,
zocher et haleilot itach et harega'im,
veshuv halev nishbar merov ga'agu'im.
Ani margish k'mo yam bise'arah
ve'at afilu lo sho'elet mah karah,
itach ani yode'a shehaytah li derech,
bil'adaich ein li matarah.
Ani chayav otach kan letzidi,
ani karu'a lig'zarim ana chizri.
Ein mi sheyargi'a, ein mi sheyelatef,
uch'shemagi'a lailah ke'ev oti otef.
Achshav ani shavur le'elef resisim,
holech li le'ibud yored mehapasim,
hayiti menaseh leshanot et chayay,
lu rak hayah sikui shetachzeri elai!
YOU NEXT TO ME
I return to the loneliness and I'm not finding you
the room is orphaned from your touch,
I remember the nights with you, the moments
and again my heart is broken due to yearnings
I feel like the sea in a storm
and you don't even ask what happened
with you I know that there was a path for me
without you I don't have a purpose.
I must have you here by my side
I'm torn to pieces please come back
There's no one to calm, no one to stroke (me)
and as the night comes, pain envelops me.
Now I am broken to thousands of pieces
going to an abyss, I'm coming off the rails
I'd try to change my life
if only there was a chance that you'd return to me!
