THey came with Stones

Music and Lyrics by Sharon Eliashar

They came with Stones and oiled bones, making their way
My life is pure, my heart is sure
They came with stones to take it away
My silence will be spoken
Climb up in the night, stones in candlelight
We follow the rain, we won't be forgotten
Last cup of tea, sweet with Jalabi
We fall with the braid
Fly like a bird over the cliff, crash into rushing water
Breathe in the mud to be free
Now I dream of morning apricots, fresh inside my garden
Stones are resting wherever they want
And the fruit trees will flourish from the flood that almost tore me apart
Climb up in the night, stones in candlelight
We follow the rain, we won't be forgotten
Last cup of tea, sweet with Jalebi
We fall with the braid
Fly like a bird over the cliff, crash into rushing water
Breathe in the mud to be free
