about

Idan Raichel is dedicated to the art of collaboration, and on his new single he is joined by Zehava Ben, one of Israel's most beloved voices. 

Raichel has an innate ability to cast the right voice with each of his compositions. "Each song is a different scene from an imaginary film," explains Idan. "I relate to each song as though it is a complete stand-alone creation and all the elements have to come together to serve the end purpose: the song. So the voice that performs the song is very relevant. Turning to Zehava was the natural and obvious move from the moment I completed writing the song.”


ENGLISH TRANSLATION:

A love like this can't be found anymore
Secrets stored in my heart for years
Pictures between silence and words
A broken heart turns into songs
Silence turns into a melody

A love like this can't be seen anymore
Walking slowly and holding hands
Along the path everyone passes by
Collecting pieces, fragments of life
Tears turn into words and melody

As the moon gets fuller, and smaller
You get closer and walk away
But my heart goes out to you
And again you flee, and again return
Not a day will pass without me thinking of you


HEBREW LYRICS:

Ahava ka'zo kvar lo mots-im
Sodot shmurim ba'lev sheli shanim
Tmunot bein sheket bein millim
Lev shavur hoffech shirim
Shtika hoffechet la le'mangina

Ahava ka'zo kvar lo ro-im
Holchim le-at ve'ochazim yada-im
Be'tsiday ha'shvil kulam ovrim
Osffim shvarim pissot cha-im
Dma-ot hoffchot le'shir u'mangina

Kmo yare-ach mitmalle u'mitroken
Ata karev u'mitrachek
Aval ha'lev shely yotse elecha
Ve'shuv boreach shuv chozer
Ain yom echad she'ya-avor bli she'echshov alecha
