'Gypsy Love' / 'Ahava Tzoanit' by Light In Babylon (Song, Hebrew, Video)

Let there be Light in Babylon!


Lyrics:

"Mi ze yoshev bechalomi
Mechalomi el chaloni

Matai taboha ahuvi
Mechalomi el chaloni

Matai, matai
Matai tashuv elai
Veim tizke
Lirot et ziv panai

Ze ahuvi min hamidbar
Ze ahuvi min hametzulot
Ani yodaat ze mikvar
Sheahuvi rav maalot

Matay, matai
Matai tashuv elai
Veim tizke
Lirot et ziv panai

Eheye lecha keshvil chalav
Lecha adlik shmei kochav
Ve lo eshev ve lo eshkot
Ad sheata oti tohav

Matay, matai
Matai tashuv elai
Veim tizke
Lirot et ziv panai

Im metziut o chalom
Hu ahuvi
Ha ahava
Hi zot shebilvavi"


Lyrics: Michal Elia Kamal
