Harel_Skaat_skaat4_wa

On March 15, Israelis will decide which song boyish heartthrob Harel Skaat will sing at Eurovision. Those of you who aren’t lucky enough to vote in the actual selection contest can still play along. Listen to Harel’s four songs below, read the lyrics (which Wiwi has added in English) and then cast your vote! Voting ends Saturday, March 13 at midnight. Let’s tell Israel how we think they should vote, Europe!

Le’hitkarev / Closer

Lyrics:

End of day
Night begins again
in the window a familiar place
body heat goes up
and will come back to break alone – together
one-hand clock counting with me how many

how many distances to approach
to what then wrapped me hugged me
and it’s empty without it
that was then and now I’m
looking for getting closer

the end of the heat
cold is coming into the room
on the wall, the song
words is written on stone
limp light has gone out
soft lips touch
entire city is in silent
and I ‘m asking how many

how many distances to approach
to what then wrapped me hugged me
and it’s empty without it
that was then and now I’m
looking for getting closer

Le’an / Away

Drops of cold winter are washing the entire city
Beginning colors at the end of a clear day
I dream maybe hallucinating you
Running away from the silence

and where, the time, took you far away
Floating through dreams finding a sign. A small moment
i remember you whispering a secret
Slowly a shadow of your image, I’m staying, not touching you and i’m breaking
Lost In your world

Now that you are not here I’ve forgotten how to
feel
Everything you left I share with nobody
I dream maybe hallucinating you alone

from the silence, the time, took you far away
Floating through dreams finding a sign. A small moment
i remember you whispering a secret
Slowly a shadow of your image, I’m staying,
not touching you and i’m breaking
Lost
I’m running away
and where
not touching you and i’m breaking
In your world
I’m running away
and where

Millim / Words

once again the sadness is here
again fear has risen
and the end is at my window
cracked glass, silence again and
exhausted and cast aside
in my mind
the light fell asleep, tears of blood
burning my throat
scratched handle ,fallen ceiling
when singing to you the last song

you left me only words
Refuge in the shadows
arranged books
and in between the rooms
you left me only words
and a bouquet of locks
god
you left me only 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 is left when you are gone?

you left me only words
Refuge between the shadows
arranged books
and in between the rooms
you left me only words
locks bouquet
god
you left me only words

to the ice is also cold
When I remember
how today you are in front of him
Lightning in his shadow
Breaking for him
the words you left me
You are telling him

Ela’yich / Towards You

And on that day when I lost value
I found the whole world inside your eyes
When everyone returned to the house and road
I wanted to return to you

And that night when I broke down quietly
You stroked my head affectionately
When everyone believed in the light and the sun
I always just believed in you

I was close to falling and giving up
You played for me until the last one of your strings broke
When everyone asked for the world
I asked for you

That autumn, that upset the rhythm
I stopped shaking only in your hands
when everyone fled into the ground and Sorrow
I chose to run to you
In this life where nothing is guaranteed
I swear to light your Shadows
And how lucky I am to have you?
What would I do without you

All of them sound the same to me.. .and none of them have a good rhythm tune… so I guess it doesn’t matter which song he picks.. this is going to be Israel’s worst entry in the past 3 yrs…. I liked Fire in Your Eyes… in 2006
