Your Forehead Adorned
Lyrics: Avraham Halfi
Music: Yoni Rechter
Adorned is your forehead with black gold (I can't remember if it was written in a song)
Your forehead rhymes with eyes and light (I can't remember if it was rhymed in a song)
But for whoever you'll be
His life is filled with song
Your pink robe is fluffy and soft
You always wrap yourself in it before night
I wouldn't want to be your brother
Nor a monk praying to the image of an angel
And see grim dreams of sanctity
And in front of him you, a woman.
You like to be sad and silent,
To listen to a story about something close something far.
And I, who will often be watching you silently,
no sound or words,
Forgetting everything about other people;
My soul resides within the walls of your home.
Captive between your walls, set apart from me,
As I in my body am apart from you;
Stretched out is my dream as a rug to your feet
Pace, beloved on its flowers your paces
Wear your pink robe before night.
In a short while I will come to you.
And your black gold adorned forehead
Will come close to my lips like a rhyme to a song;
Then I’ll whisper to your ear 'til morning, 'til dawn, like a drunk:
Adorned is your forehead with black gold.
