To The Unknown

I don’t even remember how But I spent a few years On a ship till now

The crew was nice There were no mice But all I ate was just plain rice

The sun was withering The ocean kept whispering You’re floating on turquoise ice

One day I went to the Captain Told him I wanna go for a dive Captain said NO You’ll never come back alive…

So I told him
So I told him

To the Unknown I’m on my own
To the Unknown All fears are thrown
To the Unknown My life reborn

Life is too short To spend on a boat That feels like a protective coat

I swam to the shore Where I’ve never been before I felt a deep urge to explore

The sand said he’s crazy The shells said he’s lazy The jungle shook his head and said maybe

So I told them
So I told them

To the Unknown I’m on my own
To the Unknown All fears are thrown
To the Unknown My life reborn

My Parents may cry
My Friends may say why
The Skeptics will frown and slightly sigh

So I’ll tell them
So I’ll tell them

To the Unknown I’m on my own
To the Unknown All fears are thrown
To the Unknown My life reborn

 

Lyrics & Music by Eldad Cohen

If You Ever Catch A Thief

Far away across the ocean There’s a man behind a screen He sells roses with devotion Making money off my dreams

Giving in to his charmed power I bought his flowers with my bills But when they came they were all dead I lost my money and was misled

So if you ever catch a thief Show him that you’ve got belief Light a match Pull his teeth

I struck him with a mighty stroke Like a storm upon an oak If he’d avoid this one charge I would have suffered by and large

So if you ever catch a thief Show him that you’ve got belief Light a match Pull his teeth

Now I know I can’t correct all wrong Cuz that’s too much for just one song But when I came across that scam I just had to give a damn

A shudder of anguish ate his soul As he was arrested and put in a hole Now he’ll have to return my bills Well that’s just God’s will

So if you ever catch a thief Show him that you’ve got belief Light a match Pull his teeth

 

Music & Lyrics by Eldad Cohen

Did you Notice?

I am the tree That you moved, overseas I’ve got no roots Nor twigs or leaves

I thought you should know That I’m the tree that has no forest Off all the feelings Feeling lost is the strongest

Did you notice?

Probably not I’m fool with a song I just heard a cry Of a wolf with false hopes

I thought you should know That I’m the tree that has no forest Off all the feelings Feeling lost is the strongest

Did you notice?

I thought you should know That I’m the tree that has no forest Off all the feelings Feeling lost is the strongest

Did you notice?

 

Music & Lyrics by Eldad Cohen

Oh' Mama

Oh’ Mama
Papa don’t care for me
Care for me
Don’t care for me

Oh’ Mama
Papa don’t care for me
Care for me
Don’t care for me

Oh’ Mama
Papa don’t share with me
Share with me
Don’t share for me

Oh’ Mama
Papa ain’t fair with me
Fair with me
Ain’t fair with me

Oh’ Mama
Papa don’t care for me
Care for me
Don’t care for me







The Time Is Never Right

Baby, I’ve been waiting for a while Fingers flirting numbers, for a dial Baby, I wanna take you, for a ride

But the time is never right The time is never right

Baby, I like you, it’s very clear Like a mirror dancing wild, I’m too sincere Baby, let’s go out, drink all your fears

But the time is never right The time is never right

And I’ve climbed this tree And you are lost at sea Baby, it’s just a cup of tea

But the time is never right The time is never right

And I (I, I) hate this train (train, train) Cuz it (it, it) moves insane (insane) Wanna have (have, have) you today (today)

But the time is never right The time is never right

Time Time Time is never right

The time is never right The time is never right The time is never right

 

Lyrics & Music by Eldad Cohen

Looking For Love She Dies

She lies in her bed and cries

Looking for love she dies

Just don’t lie…

She lies in her bed and cries

Looking for love she dies

Clouds rise Open your eyes Please be wise

She lies in her bed and cries

Looking for love she dies

Just don’t lie…

 

Music & Lyrics Eldad Cohen

I rise Like Dust

If I, If I could bring back time

I would, I would take just one path

For years, I searched and searched and fought

And now I feel so lost

Like dust, like dust, I will rise

I’ll look for some light

I don’t want to be in the dark

Insecure and lost in thought

I just want to walk

I look, I look through the cracks

The answer must be caught

For years, I searched and searched and fought

And now I feel so lost

Like dust, like dust, I will rise

I’ll look for some light

gonna Hang up

I just called
To ask how you are
But you talk numbers
Jumping up and down

I can’t hear
You preaching me
I can’t speak
My father’s blind to me

I just asked about your heart And you just answered
With your mind
Tears are falling, that ain’t right

Gonna hang up
Gonna hang up
Gonna hang up
Gonna hang up

Don’t know when
I’ll call again
I’ve been here before
And you’re over there

I have tried
Tried to pretend
That things have changed
But everything’s the same

I just asked about your heart And you just answered
With your mind
Tears are falling, that ain’t right

Gonna hang up
Gonna hang up
Gonna hang up
Gonna hang up

 

Music & Lyrics by Eldad Cohen

Why Now?

Oh brother, dear brother
I know we haven’t talked, for a long time
But it doesn’t matter for I’m, no longer now
Like two wrecked ships in a storm
We crossed the seas, with dread and scorn

Why Now
Why Now
Why Now
As I die

Oh brother, dear brother
I heard your heart is locked, in a cage of grudge
But let me free you of, that odious judge
Like two birds on a crumbling arch
We’ve lost our poise in this funeral march

Why Now
Why Now
Why Now
As I die

I shake your hand as I leave Bruised and lonely, now you grieve

Why Now
Why Now
Why Now
As I die

 

Music & Lyrics by Eldad Cohen

 

Embrace The Now

As the days pass by You’ll understand how As the days pass by You’ll understand how

As the days pass by You’ll understand how As the days pass by You’ll understand how

Let the sun shine Let the river flow Let the cows walk on Let it all go

Don’t ask how Just embrace the now Don’t ask how Just embrace the now

As the days pass by You’ll understand how As the days pass by You’ll understand how

Let the monkeys steal your time Let the boulders touch the sky Let the street vendors lie Let it all go

Don’t ask how Just embrace the now Don’t ask how Just embrace the now

As the days pass by You’ll understand how As the days pass by You’ll understand how

 

Lyrics & Music by Eldad Cohen

A 1000 Masks And One Screen

A thousand masks and one screen
A generation of the instant caffeine
A thousand masks and one screen
I need some rest, give me some morphine

A thousand masks and one screen
Take a good look at the American Dream
A thousand masks and one screen
Humans controlled by heartless machines

Have you looked at the sun today?
Is it dark blue or pale gray? Have you felt the breeze today? Or where you stuck in virtual delay

A thousand masks and one screen Live online, where everyone is seen
A thousand masks and one screen I need some friends, give some esteem

A thousand masks and one screen Take a good look at the American Dream
A thousand masks and one screen
Humans controlled by heartless machines

Have you looked at the sun today?
Is it dark blue or pale gray? Have you felt the breeze today? Or where you stuck in virtual delay

 

Lyrics & Music by Eldad Cohen Piano: Gil Assayas

I'm Done With The Guilt

Remember when I hired you
In a Coffee Shop, downtown Jeru
Buttoned shirt, formal look
You read me like, an open book

Two days later, one phone call
I was surprised: a ride for fall… You asked for whiskey and a hug
You felt so lonely, attention was your only drug

You gave me a flower, I threw it with delight
Cuz you’re the Princess
And I’m the Knight
And now you’re angry,
Though I apologized

I said sorry once
But you won’t forgive
Now it’s not about me
I’m done with the guilt

I said sorry once
But you won’t forgive
Now it’s not about me
I’m done with the guilt

Time passed by, it really did And then I wrote you, and asked for relief
You said I hate you, you’re such a fake
But I said sorry, for Heaven’s sake

And so I waited, a few weeks passed
I felt so sad, when thought of the past
So I wrote a poem, cuz I felt so lonely
It was so blunt, nothing was phony

You read my poem, You said, leave me alone
I dropped my sword
Prayed to the Lord
And you’re still mad
Though I said it was my fault

I said sorry once
But you won’t forgive
Now it’s not about me
I’m done with the guilt

I said sorry once
But you won’t forgive
Now it’s not about me
I’m done with the guilt

אֱמֶת שֶׁלִּי תִּתְפַּשְּׁטִי

אֱמֶת שֶׁלִּי — תִּתְפַּשְּׁטִי הָרְאִי לִי אֶת פנייך הָרְאִי לִי אֶת צבעייך הָרְאִי לִי, הסתלבטי

אֱמֶת שֶׁלִּי — תִּתְפַּשְּׁטִי אחרייך אֶצְעַד לְנַצֵּחַ⁠ מֵאֲחוֹרֶיךָ לֹא אֹכַל לְהֵחָבֵא שְׁקוּפָה אֶת כְּמוֹ אֲוִיר

מִמֵּךְ לָמַדְתִּי לִזְרֹק אֶת הדאווין אֶת הָרֹאשׁ לְהַרְכִּין לִהְיוֹת אֲנִי

אֱמֶת שֶׁלִּי — תִּתְפַּשְּׁטִי הָרְאִי לִי אֶת עַצְמִי הָרְאִי לִי אֶת הַהוֹנָאוֹת שֶׁיַּמִּי קֵץ לַחַיִּים במרכאות

אֱמֶת שֶׁלִּי — תִּתְפַּשְּׁטִי הוֹרִידִי אֶת נעלייך הוֹרִידִי אֶת בגדייך סוונרי אוֹתִי סִנְווּרִי

מִמֵּךְ לָמַדְתִּי לִזְרֹק אֶת הדאווין אֶת הָרֹאשׁ לְהַרְכִּין לִהְיוֹת אֲנִי

אֱמֶת שֶׁלִּי — הַאִם אֶת שֶׁלִּי? אִם כֵּן אָז הַנְהְנִי התפשטי נָא כְּמוֹ שְׁמוּעָה תְּטַהֲרִי נָא אֶת גּוּפִי

 

What is This Sign That's Shining?

I see a star between the skies
It shines so bright, it hurts my eyes
It jumps right off onto my thighs
It must be something, maybe a sign

Right when it starts to disappear
I hear a whisper in my ear
The
Universe sends me a hint A little sign, a little wink

What is this sign that shining? Maybe a message coming… Why does it keep returning? There’s gotta be a meaning to this

At first I think it makes no sense
I look again using my lens
Oh my god, I see my name
A cue from heaven, once again

What is this sign that shining? Maybe a message coming… Why does it keep returning? There’s gotta be a meaning to this

Miracles do appear
Closer than you think
Yeah Yeah Yeah

What is this sign that shining? Maybe a message coming… Why does it keep returning? There’s gotta be a meaning to this
