3. Three Days (c)
Shloshah yamim lo mash zichro mimeni,
Ubvarvi-i parasti et halechem,
Ubarvi-i patachti et hatsoar,
Ubarvi-i raiti et hayam.
Shloshah yamim lo mash zichro mimeni,
Ubarvi-i yada'ati shehayam,
Yafeh me'od umerchavo kachol,
Uv'mashav-haruach hamaluach,
Re'ach hayam, lo ta'am dim'otay.

Translation:
Standing in the heart of the desert
I have not one star
The wind is silent
The sand will not preserve my footprints

Standing in the heart of the desert
I have not even one star
And the wind is not whispering to me...

I called out: answer me!
He did not answer
I cried out: open!
He did not
The night was burning hot and dry
I went to a different gate to try

I called out: answer me!
He did not answer
I cried out: open!
He did not
The night was strangling and sedate
I went to try a different gate.

I whispered: answer me
He did not answer
I pleaded: open
He did not
That morning the sun rose, but dew wouldnt fall
Thus I was found by the guards of the wall

Three days his memory haunted me
And on the fourth I cut the bread
And on the fourth I opened the window
And on the fourth I saw the sea...

Three days his memory haunted me
And on the fourth I knew
The sea was beautiful and blue

And in the breeze
The scent of waves
But not the taste of tears
