From the album Open the Gate / ouvre la porte
Music and lyrics by Lenka Lichtenberg
zol zayn (trans. Yiddish: what if)
chorus: zol zayn: let’s say deep down inside,
we’re just one, one
in the end, we still feel the same pain
zol zayn, ah, ah
1.verse why is it that
only when under threat
are we united
how bad must it get?
are we there yet?
what will it take to be
to be united…?
chorus: zol zayn… (as first time)
2. verse isn’t it great
when you get up at eight
and turn on the TV
no bloodshed today
what a relief! – for a day,
time enough for love
for love or hate…?
chorus: zol zayn, ah, ah. (only 2nd half)
bridge: in times like these,
what does it matter
what does really matter?
in times like these,
what does it matter,
chorus: zol zayn, little piece of you is right here in me
take ch’fil vi du et comme toi, je suis
chorus: zol zayn, maybe deep down inside we’re just one, one
zol zayn, in the end we still feel the same pain
zol zayn, little piece of you is right here, in me
take ch’fil vi du, et comme toi, je suis (transl. Yiddish: I really feel like you)
kol ha’am echad, ja jsem jako ty, (transl. French: and I am as you are )
yadadai dai dai, yadadai dai dai (transl.Hebrew: only one people)
(transl. Czech: I am like you)
