lyrics

In the beginning there was love
It waited for fertile soil as it would wait for water
It waited for the sun, for the sun setting into the sea
And to a wave of longing
Waited
In the beginning there was love
And it waited until it would have the heavens
To look up to the stars
And it waited for Adam and Eve

Someone is waiting for you at home
Nearby
Maybe around some corner
A place you will call home
That when you go inside it will become yours

In the beginning there was love
And it waited until it would find some rest
And it waited for children in the courtyard
And for a tree to climb and to rest in its shade
In the beginning there was love
And after it, sorrow was created
And the tears and the broken heart
And after them came consolation

בראשית

בראשית כבר הייתה אהבה
לאדמה טובה חיכתה כמו למים
חיכתה לשמש, לשקיעות שבים
ולגל של געגוע
חיכתה

ובראשית כבר הייתה אהבה
וחיכתה שיהיו לה שמיים
לשאת עיניים אל הכוכבים
וחיכתה גם לאדם וחוה

מישהו מחכה לך בבית
קרוב לכאן
אולי באיזו פינה
מקום שתקראי לו בית
כשתכנסי בו יהפוך לשלך

ובראשית כבר הייתה אהבה
וחיכתה שכבר תמצא לה מנוח
וחיכתה לילדים בחצר
וגם לעץ לטפס ולנוח בצל

בראשית כבר הייתה אהבה
ואחריה כבר נברא לו הצער
והדמעות והלב השבור
ואחריהם הגיעה נחמה
