 Shir Le'Bavat (Song for Bavat)

Ady Cohen / IL

duration: 3'38"

Text of the song
I've got a good girlfriend
And she's not here with me
I am waiting that she'll return

She went away from here a long time ago
To a place that has no sea
How much longer is it possible to wait?

When I heard that she is singing songs
Then my heart sank to the depths
My portrait makes her miss me

There is no such place where the heart is able
To be alone without anyone touching it at all
I'm going to send this song to space.

I've got a good (girl)friend
And she's not here with me
I am waiting that she'll return

She went away from here a long time ago
To a place that has no sea
How long is it possible to love this way?

When you'll come I won't be able to wait anymore
I'll sit in the living room and just look at you for hours
I wouldn't want to do anything else anymore

You'll take my heart and envelope it in your hand
No need for you to say where, why and how
And I'll look at you...

(the girlfriend):
...and you'll simply smile

(they both giggle)

(the boyfriend):
I've got a good girlfriend
And she's not here with me
I am waiting that she'll return…
