Yitzhak Rabin

 

Ofra Haza, singing Leorech Hayam (Along the Sea)

Tell me how to stop the tears

Tell me where there’s another world to live in

Tell me why there is no truth, only illusions

So why should we try, and continue crying now?

Along the length of the sea

There are no waves; there is a world

Broken into fragments on the pier

Tell me how to stop the tears

Tell me where there’s another world to live in

When people run into an inferno as if into the sea

I would run into the fire,

If only they would return from there

Tell me how you live with death

Hiding the tears every night –

Tell me, how much longer?

The fire that calls me

Is not really there

And the one who disappeared,

Will he return, or is he already dead?

Tell me how to stop the tears

Tell me how…..

“We are travelling surely on the road to peace and see the fruits of our labors, even if difficulties are mounting. Our political, security, and economic situations are a source of optimism and hope for us all.” Rabin’s Knesset Policy Statement, May 1995

Tell me how to stop the tears
Tell me where there’s another world to live in
Tell me why there is no truth, only illusions
So why should we try, and continue crying now?
Along the length of the sea
There are no waves; there is a world
Broken into fragments on the pier
Tell me how to stop the tears
Tell me where there’s another world to live in
When people run into an inferno as if into the sea
I would run into the fire,
If only they would return from there
Tell me how you live with death
Hiding the tears every night –
Tell me, how much longer?
The fire that calls me
Is not really there
And the one who disappeared,
Will he return, or is he already dead?
Tell me how to stop the tears
Tell me how….Tell me how to stop the tears
Tell me where there’s another world to live in
Tell me why there is no truth, only illusions
So why should we try, and continue crying now?
Along the length of the sea
There are no waves; there is a world
Broken into fragments on the pier
Tell me how to stop the tears
Tell me where there’s another world to live in
When people run into an inferno as if into the sea
I would run into the fire,
If only they would return from there
Tell me how you live with death
Hiding the tears every night –
Tell me, how much longer?
The fire that calls me
Is not really there
And the one who disappeared,
Will he return, or is he already dead?
Tell me how to stop the tears
Tell me how…..

  1. such the mystery……………I wonder, why did they love him so much? Was he a savior figure? My heart’s reply to this song is yes, there is a world to live in, with Jesus, and His Grace will take you there.
