Foreword

Interesting note: The video was recorded in Kyiv, Ukraine! 🙂

As with previous text translations, this translation is based on the official lyrics. The reason for not doing this one as a video translation, even though you can find the video below, is because several parts that were in the official lyrics didn’t correspond what actually is sung in the official music video. I also corrected some typos, like the official lyrics having “enfolds” instead of “unfolds”, and “grow” instead of “growing”. The latter is actually sung correctly, just not correct in the official lyrics.

English lyrics:

Years, looking over my shoulder
Getting colder and colder
How to leave, when to go?
Voices, growing louder and louder, sounding bolder and bolder, as the drama unfolds.

Oh, those dark eyes, mesmerizing in their touching plea, speaking to us silently, reaching to the skies.

Dark eyes, wise eyes, they have often seen how difficult your life is.
I want to now really sing about you and remember all the brilliance of the Jewish eyes.

Danger, hovering over
Needing rescue and cover
Shaking our core.
Dreams growing stronger and stronger
Though we’re weary and older
It’s been done before.

Oh those dark eyes
Tell our story
Piercing through the mist
Eyes of grace and mystery
How can we resist?

Dark eyes, wise eyes, they have often seen how difficult your life is.
I want to now really sing about you and remember all the brilliance of the Jewish eyes.

The skies were dark, but we knew G-d would help us.
Heart-troubled, as without G-d and faith, we can not do it.
Human will destroy, it’s not a pure power of G-d…
It is impossible to live.
Is it all necessary?
We are children of G-d
Moses was given a road
We have many enemies
Being a Jew is not easy.
Bullied for a long time
We can’t and don’t want to, but we forgive.
I don’t trust anyone for a second, I’m losing my compassion.
We need to pray.
Help us, G-d.
