Yerushalayim, tell me what's wrong|
I have never seen such sorrow
In your eyes and the future is tomorrow.
How I hate to see you like this
There is no way you can deny it
I can see that you're oh so sad, so quiet
Yerushalayim, tell me the truth
I'm a shoulder you can cry on
Your best friend, I'm the one you must rely on
You were always sure of yourself
Now I see you've broken a feather
I hope we can patch it up together
How it hurts to see you cry
And how it hurts to see you sad
Yerushalayim you and I know
How the heartaches come and they go
And the scars, they're leaving.
You'll be dancing once again,
And the pain will end.
We will have no time for grieving.
Yerushalayim you and I cry,
But the sun is still in the sky
And shining above you.
Let me hear you sing once more,
Like you did before,
Sing a new song, Yerushalayim
Heartaches come and go and
How the morning sun is shining
Once again we're dancing and
Pain will end, pain will end
Morning sun is shining,
yes it's shining and
it's time for dance and singing
like the whole world did before, before.
At the dawn you wake with a cry
In the eve you murmur a sigh
It won't be so far long
Till you rise and sing your own song
All the world will come to know
Fly high our broken sparrow
Hold to the truth my friend
As you've done again and again
