Efrat Kolberg - Heartache and Tears

Heartache and tears but also love, laughter, family, independence, creativity and optimism. Happy birthday Israel!

Dad, just don't ask me
What my plans are
Mom, don't look at me
With that scrutinizing eye

Maybe it's not what you thought
That I'd grow up to be
You gave a lot and I returned
Heartache and tears

I went out to the road,
To discover the country
I met the people
Whose lives are worth less

I discovered that injustice
Doesn't bother those who have rights
And it made me want to change
Heartache and tears
I chased after love
I gave her everything
I agreed even to forget
Who I was yesterday

I learned to be patient
And what it means to give unconditionally
And what did I get out of it?
Heartache and tears

I came back home and mom
Asked what I brought with me
If I learned and moved forward
Speak and I will listen to you, my daughter

I don't have a degree
Also no property or finances
But I would be rich if they sold in stores

Heartache and tears
