With One Gentle Touch (bingiyah achat rakah)

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

Nurit Galron


When I sat opposite you without speaking
Because everything had been said
And you might have thought that it was very hard for me
And you might have seen it was bitter
So you moved suddenly towards the kitchen
And you returned a minute later
And on the way you didn't place your hand on my shoulder
For a single gentle touch

Yes, you're so honest and so very fair
And you could never cheat
When you're not in love, that's that
And that can't be changed
But when you passed right next to me
And I was one big scream
You didn't place your hand on my shoulder
For a single gentle touch

And that I haven't forgotten
And that I don't forgive
And for that I won't forgive you
Ever
For that I won't forget
And that I won't forgive
Forever

When I was with you, I wasn't with me
I was just a picture
I only allowed myself to love you
And all else was forbidden
And I didn't want any niceties from you
But in that very moment
I would have wanted, I would have needed
One gentle touch
