“Milim” Lyrics — Harel Skaat (Eurovision 2010, Israel)

Shuv ha’etsev kan, shuv hapachad kan
Vehasof nirkam bechaloni
Zgugit sduka veshuv shtika
Muteshet vezruka bedimyoni

Haor nirdam, dmaot shel dam sorfot li bagaron
Yadit sruta, tikra shmuta
Cshe’ani shaer lach et hashir haacharon

Sfarim mesudarim, uven hachadarim
Hesh’art li rak milim, zer shel man’ulim
Elohim, hesh’art li rak milim

Kirot shotkim achshav uma lakacht keshebaracht?
Ken, ma lakacht? Bamilchama hazit ulay nitzacht
Uma nish’ar li kshe’alacht?

Hesh’art li rak milim, miklat ben hatslalim
Sfarim mesudarim, uven hachadarim
Hesh’art li rak milim, zer shel man’ulim
Elohim, hesh’art li rak milim

Hesh’art li rak milim, miklat ben hatslalim
Sfarim mesudarim, uven hachadarim
Hesh’art li rak milim, zer shel man’ulim
Elohim, hesh’art li rak milim

Vegam lakerach kar, ksheani nizkar
Ech at hayom mulo, mueret betsilo
Nishberet bishvilo, et hamilim shehesh’art li
At achshav omeret lo

Hesh’art li rak milim, miklat ben hatslalim
Sfarim mesudarim, uven hachadarim
Hesh’art li rak milim, zer shel man’ulim
Elohim, hesh’art li rak milim

Sfarim mesudarim, uven hachadarim
Hesh’art li rak milim, zer shel man’ulim
Elohim, hesh’art li rak milim

English Translation

Words

The sadness is here again, the fear is here again
and the end is at my window.
Broken glass and silence again
exhausted and forsaken in my mind.

The light fell asleep, tears of blood are burning my throat
scratched handle, fallen ceiling
While I’m singing the last song to you.

You’ve left me nothing but words, shelter in the shadows
tidy books and in between the rooms
you’ve left me nothing but words, a wreath of locks
Oh God, you’ve left me nothing but words

The walls are silent now and what did you take when you ran away
Yes, what did you take? You might have won this war
What am I left with when you are gone?

You’ve left me nothing but words, shelter in the shadows
tidy books and in between the rooms
you’ve left me nothing but words, a bouquet of locks
God, you’ve only words behind

Even the ice feels cold when I remember
How today you stand before him, a light in his shadow
Breaking for him the words you’ve left
you are now telling him

You’ve left me nothing but words, shelter in the shadows
tidy books and in between the rooms
you’ve left me nothing but words, a wreath of locks
Oh God, you’ve left me nothing but words

Can't remember any other Eurovision contestant who impressed me so much as Harel! He's the best singer with the best voice and the best song ever in the history of Eurovision!! Will not stop repeating this!!!!!
