Who would you sing it to?
2. כל מה שיש לי – Everything I have
In this song written and performed by Natan Goshen, he sings – sadly and nostalgically – about a love that’s no longer available for him. With sadness and pain, he tells “her” that she is everything he has and that he truly wonders what would have happened if he had never left.

3. עד שתחזור – Until you come back
In this song, Yuval Dayan talks about how much she misses that special person. She mentions everything that she does and will do “until he comes back”. In a very poetic way, she says how much she walks around the walls during nights and how and why that will happen until he comes back. Among other beautiful things, she says in this song that everything that is an “empirical fact” doesn’t apply to her love story.
4. זכיתי לאהוב – I had the privilege of loving
Ivri Lider, an amazing Israeli singer, wrote and sang this emotional song. He sings beautifully that when everything goes wrong, or when we are just having a bad day, it is good to remember that “there is a pair of hands that want us close by”, that we can love, that we have won the privilege of loving.
