Idan Haviv-Waiting



I love the simplicity of this song. It's quite emotional but at the same time very relaxing. The kind of music they like to play on the radio on weekends. And I'm pretty happy that it's no.1 on the radio charts. Idan Haviv is a former army officer from an elite unit and I think that it shows in this song. It's hard to describe, but I can really hear in this song the voice of a soldier away from home. Yesterday was the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and like the rest of the world we too had our eyes on America and watched the emotional ceremony on the news. Everybody talks about where they were on 9/11 and how vividly they remember it so I'll also share my thoughts. I was in the seventh grade at home with my sister- we were watching some sitcom on the children's channel and it was early evening. My mom came home from work, her face pale and told us to switch to the news because something happened. This was during the second intifada and my first thought was that there had been a terrorist attack in Israel-the thought of terror outside our country, in New York of all places, seemed so strange and foreign to me. Just a few months earlier I had a conversation with a friend from summer camp who said that when he'll grow up he'll leave the country and move to America because it's so much more normal there and from what he heard also easier to make money. I personally thought he was acting a bit cowardly but didn't say anything to him. I think that was the biggest shock of 9/11-realizing that no place was really safe from terror, completely contrary to what we thought before of America.

Who comes up first it's an old love
Until I'll wake up
Here lying beside you try to relax
Who like me is this way with you?

The same dream, a familiar sentence doesn't leave me alone
I'm here with you always waiting
A field of thorns or a field of cotton
I'm again me, I'm just me
Standing barefoot on warm ground and ready

Who comes for sure it's an old love
Until I'll wake up
How the light in me went out and still guarding yours
Who like me is this way with you?

The same dream, a familiar sentence doesn't leave me alone
I'm here with you always waiting
A field of thorns or a field of cotton
I'm again me, I'm just me
Standing barefoot on warm ground and ready
