Lyrics: Leah Goldberg
Music: Oded Lerrer
You came to me, to open my eyes.
To me your body was a view, a window and a mirror.
You came as night comes to the owl
To show him, in the darkness, all things.
And I learned: There's a name for each eyelash and fingernail,
And for every hair on the exposed flesh.
And the scent of childhood - the scent of paste and pine
Is the night aroma of the body.
If there were torments - they've sailed towards you.
My white sail into your darkness.
Allow me to go, oh allow me to go
And kneel on the shore of forgiveness.
