If I give you everything Will you open your heart and let me in If I give you everything Throwing my soul against the wind Would you let me sing My inside out All the love within, If I give you everything If I give you everything If I give you everything All of my dreams and hidden fear If I give you everything My craziest laugh and saddest tear Would your feelings grow The more you know Would they disappear If I give you everything If I give you everything She stares at the mirror She's seen that face so many times before, She knows every line, every pore, Poor souls been tattered, She's been round and round but still some how, You hear her say... If I give you everything Will you open your heart and let me in If I give you everything Throwing my soul against the wind Would you let me sing My inside out All the love within, If I give you everything If I give you everything...

Can I reach you, Are you there? Can reach you Do you care? Can I reach you If I let down my hair, If I sit here and stare.. Can I reach you If I try? Can I reach you If I cry? Can I reach you If I show you my eyes If I wear my disguise Can I reach you? What'll it be Longing or sorrow? What'll it be Beauty or light? What'll it be Honesty, passion? What'll it be Tonight.. Can you hear me Through the dark? Can you hear me Where you are ? Can you hear me How I give you my soul How I swallow you whole Can you hear me? What'll it be Frailty or anger? What'll it be Purity or pride? What'll it be Sanity, madness? What'll it be... Can I reach you With my voice? Can I reach you With my words? Can I reach you With my dreams.. Will I be happy? What'll it be Longing or sorrow? What'll it be Beauty or light? What'll it be Honesty, passion? What'll it be Tonight.. What'll it be Frailty or anger? What'll it be Purity or pride? What'll it be Sanity, madness? What'll it be?

Explain the night to me Explain the stars Explain the way I feel Explain the scars Explain the outline of the trees against the sky Explain the tangled words of love we can?t untie Explain the night to me Explain the black And how the light was lost And how to get it back Explain the rising of the waves to swallow sand Explain how difficult it is to hold your hand We are wrapped around our needing In a drunken trance Will you swing and sway me slowly And pretend to dance We are wrapped around our sorrow In a strong embrace And between your temple and your eye I hide my face Explain the night to me The pregnant moon Explain the sudden urge The empty room Explain the way to blue And all the space Explain the makeup swiftly streaked across my face Explain the night to me Explain the past Explain the thrill of love And why it cannot last Explain the rings that slowly spread across the lake And how to someday learn to live with my mistakes We are wrapped around our needing In a drunken trance Will you swing and sway me slowly And pretend to dance We are wrapped around our sorrow In a strong embrace And between your temple and your eye I hide my face.

Stop. It's 3:15 You have one minute. Are you ready? Now think of all things created Think of those that you care for Think of what you've been blessed with And everything that makes you afraid Wish for anything Let yourself dream Wish for things to get better Until 3:16 There's a stone in my garden that keeps me committed And close to the ground when I feel I should run There's a branch in my window that helps me remember To reach out my arms and touch the sun.. There are two million ants that live in my sidewalk Working together to nurture and feed And the old TV set, with the sad evening news So I never forget how much love we need Home-made religion (In my kitchen) Home-made religion.. Think of how you've been feeling And how you've made others feel Think of what you've been given And what you need to heal Wish for anything.. Try to keep still Wish for things to get better And maybe they will There's a plant in the corner that helps me remember All of the beauty that grows from a seed And the old TV set, with the sad evening news So I never forget how much love we need Home-made religion (In my kitchen) Home-made religion.. Stop.

Every moment we decide What to open, what to hide Every moment we decide How to live our lives Every moment we can learn How to better understand Who to follow, where to turn How to find a friend I?ll wrap it with love Every day and night Wrap it up with love Watch it fill with light Wrap it up with love Every way is right . Wrap it up with love, love, love.. Every moment we grow old Trust in no one, so were told I won?t live my life in fear Rather disappear Wrap it up with love Every day and night Wrap it up with love Watch it fill with light Wrap it up with love Every way is right Wrap it up with love, love, love..

Angel with a broken wing Never leaves the ground Angel, trying hard to sing But she can't make a decent sound. Angel with a broken wing Feeling so alone Angel, she's tried everything But she can't find her way back home. So she wanders in disguise With a longing in her eyes And she looks up to the skies But there's nothing there but grey She looks down and turns away... Angel with a broken wing In our neighborhood Angel, look how things turn bad When you're so busy being good So she wanders in disguise With a longing in her eyes And she looks up to the skies But there's nothing there but grey She looks down and turns away... Angel with a broken wing Feeling so alone Angel, she's tried everything But she can't find her way back home. No, she can't find her way, Her way back home.

Don't haunt me anymore Don't haunt my days and nights Don't haunt me anymore I want to be free of your love gripping me tight Don't haunt me anymore Don't follow where I walk Don't eavesdrop on my heart, screaming silently inside While my mouth pretends to talk Don't haunt me anymore Don't haunt the things I do Don't haunt me anymore I want to be free of the memory of you Don't haunt me anymore Don't wander through my rooms Don't peek behind my eyes And laugh at all the lies I wear to hide my wounds Don't haunt me anymore I want to sleep without dreaming Let nothing in Eyes that were crying are seeing How to begin How to begin... Don't haunt me anymore Don't haunt my days and nights Don't haunt me anymore I want to be free of your love gripping me tight Don't haunt me anymore Don't trace my footsteps home I?ll live the life I have Not as crazy or as mad But my soul will be my own Don't haunt me anymore...

How many times I say the words Again and again and again and again A thousand different ways I say I love you And I tell myself I can and I can If I say the words again and again A thousand different ways I say I need you When I'm with you walls will crumble I sit down I stand I stumble Every word I mumble comes out wrong And again I try, trip and fall, Burn inside and again I call your name... And I want to dance this dance with you This crazy dance for two And dancing I?ll pretend Everything's alright And you, stay with me tonight Baby... Lately I've said these words Again and again and again and again Don't know if there's anyone to listen And I tell myself I can and I can 'Cause I didn't run when the others ran And never really cared what I was missing When I'm near you I'm the queen or I'm nothing Or I'm in between Always running not so sure where to... And you, again your face Touch me but you won't embrace me Why? And I want to dance this dance with you This crazy dance for two And dancing I'll pretend Everything's alright And you, stay with me tonight Baby.. And I want to dance this dance with you This crazy dance for two And dancing I'll pretend Everything's alright And you, stay with me tonight Maybe.. Again and again and again A thousand different words for keeping still And I tell myself try something new, There are a thousand things that you can do And I know I can... And I know I never will.

Grow into me like a vine through a sidewalk Struggling to reach for the sky Grow into me like the veins on my forehead that stand out whenever I cry Oh, I will wrap my arms around you like a long coat in winter Oh, will you stay with me on thinning ice and trust me to lead? Will you be everything I need? Climb next to me up the trail, up the mountain Even though times running out Night falls around, there's no light in the distance Only my shadows of doubt Oh, I will wrap my arms around you like a long coat in winter Oh, will you stay with me on thinning ice and trust me to lead? Will you be everything I need? Will you be everything I need?

Blue touches blue Touches grey touches brown I look down at my feet, they've been with me for years I take one step for you and then two for myself Oh, I need to be stronger I need to be stronger Blue touches blue Touches black, then expands All the tears and the years in the palm of my hand Do you think you can tell me what?s wrong and what's wronger? I need to be stronger I need to be stronger I want to twist in your arms Like a snake that's been charmed Like a baby newborn with his arms groping out I would shout but there's always a song and I need to be stronger I need to be stronger Blue touches blue I look down at my feet I take one step for you I need to be stronger Blue touches blue Touches gray, frothy white Where my face is all blurred and reflecting the night If I tell you I feel like a bird in the cold And I need you to hold me? I need you to hold me Blue touches blue...

A sad mistake A strange coincidence Two fields were crossed I lost my innocence Stood staring straight into the sun An orange flame To break the black of night He calls my name But doesn''t say it right I stay in place When I should run Carefully, carefully now Don't let it fall and break Hold it tight, with both hands For sadness sake I know you're there But I can't see too well I touch your hair Inhale your earthy smell I try to feel Beyond the glass Carefully, carefully now Don't let it fall and break Hold it tight, with both hands For sadness sake A sad mistake But I'm recovering The birds of prey No longer hovering.. Carefully, carefully now...

transliteration: Yom rishon baboker ve'ata omer li, Kama tov lehitorer kan letzidech. Shemesh melatefet ben hatrisim u- vli siba muchedet ba li lechayech Kumi kumi mami, kach ata omer li Numi numi od enayich atzumot Veharadio mekashkesh bisfat hakodesh Al ha'omes sheben rishon leganot Shir katan mitnagen baboker As the day begins - shir muar. Od daka chadashot nekave sheze beseder Good morning good morning 'Tishmei hechlateti' kach ata omer li Ani ve'at nos'im velo la'avoda Ulai nivkok et hamiflas al haKineret O bishvil shoko nitgalgel ad Yotveta Shir katan... Boi nikach et haCharade hameubeket Ga'aguim od dvukim al hashimsha Nisa le'at ki hahistoria lefanin Ma yetze lanu im na'akof ota Shir katan... <strong>Free translation from Hebrew by Noa:</strong> Monday morning and you tell me: Waking up beside you is living in style I feel the sun caressing, softly through the shades, and For no particular reason, I think I'm gonna smile! Wake up, sweety, wake up! (That's just what you tell me) Sleepy, sleepyhead, Your eyes are still afloat And the radio carries on in the holy language About a million traffic jams from Rishon to Ganot There's a little song playing as the day begins Bright and clear Any minute now the news God I hope today well hear Good morning, good morning, yeah.. Listen, I've decided (That's just what you tell me) Both of us are going, but not to work, hurrah! We could check the water level of the sea of Galilee Or make a run for chocolate-milk Down in Yotvata There's a little song playing as the day begins Bright and clear Any minute now the news God I hope today well hear Good morning, good morning Let's take the dusty charade Our heartache and longing still stuck on her glass We can take it slowly, for history?s before us What good would it do us to speed by the past? There's a little song playing as the day begins Bright and clear Any minute now the news God I hope today well hear Good morning, good morning, yeah! Good morning!

When I look into your eyes, I don't know what to say It's been so very long we've been waiting for this day When you give me that smile, I don't know what to give you back So I say oh, look at that Look at the beauty of that When I look into your eyes, I see your universe And how much better your life could be, and how much worse I see all that you've done to try and keep your hope intact And I say oh, look at that Look at the beauty of that Oh, look at that Look at the beauty of that Oh, I guess I was blind Until I realized The sun only shines When it shines in your eyes... I say, oh, look at that Look at the beauty of that Oh, look at that Look at the beauty of that

Smile, without a reason why Love, as if you were a child Smile, no matter what they tell you Don't listen to a word they say 'Cause life is beautiful that way Tears, a tidal-wave of tears Light that slowly disappears Wait, before you close the curtain There?s still another game to play And life is beautiful that way Here, in his eyes forever more I will always be as close as you remember from before. Now, that you're out there on your own Remember, what is real and what we dream is love alone. Keep the laughter in your eyes Soon, your long awaited prize Well forget about our sorrow And think about a brighter day 'Cause life is beautiful that way From the motion picture "Life IS Beautiful" / "La Vita E Bella"
