Di tsayt The time
Tekst un muzik S.Lipovsky Lyrics and music S. Lipovsky
Di tsayt, zi loyft, zi bavegt mikh;
tsi baveg oykh ikh di tsayt?
Time rushes by, it moves me,
Do I also move the time?
Di tsayt zi firt, zi vekt mikh;
tsi vek oykh ikh di tsayt?
Time leads me on and wakes me,
do I also wake the time ?
Tsi khap ikh di rege, tsi khapt zi mikh ?
A nes farborgn farblondzhet zikh!
Do I seize the moment or does it seize me?
A miracle, unseen, has lost its way.
Tsi vilstu gefinen dayn gildene sho ?
Zukh, nit zukh, zi iz shoyn do!
Do you hope to find your golden hour?
Search or not, it's already here.
Vos ken, bekitser, a mentsh nokh ton ?
Di tsayt, zi rirt mikh tsaytik on…
What indeed is one to do?
The time will touch me when it's ripe.
Di Tsayt
