Yehudit Ravitz's lyrics

As Though We Were Orphans (na`amid pney yetomim)

Lyrics: Tsuriah Lahav
Music: Yehudit Ravitz]

Translation by Daniel Rice

From the album: U'Meod Lo Pashut L'hakot (And it's really not simple to wait)

Let's pretend we're orphans
We'll cross the fence
We'll lie in the whispering reeds
We'll sleep and awake,
We'll sleep and awake,
The house is flooded with raging waters

And we'll close reality behind the door.
She waits for she is a harbor and she is the abyss.
She steals away through the cracks in any case.
Tomorrow we'll see it all by the light of day.
