The Thoughtful Animal

What I’m Listening To

Sapri Li Ahuva (Tell me, beloved) by one of my fave Israeli singers, Dindin Aviv.

For those who don’t understand Hebrew, here is a transliteration (courtesy

Tell me beloved, with your beautiful eyes
What does your heart desire?
Tell me child, beautiful in my dream
How will I wake you up for the day?

Day, another night, and a day
I am awake and my heart is asleep
What I used to be is gone
From all the has passed it seems
Only when you are with me
My heart is playing a melody

The one loved by your soul
I looked for all over the city
Locked garden you are
Open it for me, soft-eyed beloved
Open your door for me
