Golda



Former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir once said about the Palestenian right of return: “The Old ones are going to die, and the young ones will forget.”


Golda

Lyrics: Jowan Safady
English translation: Alice Liddell


The old ones are gonna die,
And the young ones will forget,
But the enemies will remind us,
whenever we forget.

How to forget the day before?
When today there is only more?
And tomorrow, very likely,
Will have another war?

Falling helpless forever in the fall,
Wandering from pitfall into trap,
Some became a vowelless grave,
or a rose upon the grave.
Some still don't even know,
Do not even know what they became.
But the justice is in heaven,
only in heaven it remains.

The old ones are gonna die,
And the young ones will forget,
But the enemies will remind us
Every time we dare to forget.
Whenever we forget...
