Shalom Hanoch's Lyrics

translations by Daniel Rice

A Man Within Himself (Adam BToch Atzmo)

---------------------------------------

Lyrics and Music: Shalom Hanoch (1978)

A man lives within himself
Within himself he lives.
Sometimes he is sad or bitter,
Sometimes he sings.
Sometimes he opens the door
To greet an acquaintance
But,
But mostly,
A man lives within himself.

A man lives within himself
Within himself he lives.
In some raging city
Or in some village,
Sometimes its end comes
And his house is broken,
But,
But mostly,
A man lies within himself.

And you, and you
How good that you came
Without you the house is empty
And the night is cold.
So I watch over you
As much as I can,
And for all that
Will I find you tomorrow?

A man is close to himself
A man lives within himself.
