SHALOM,
TIL WE MEET AGAIN
by Eva
[Jerusalem - 1983]

Shalom means peace, til we meet again.
It's never a definite good-bye.
Hello, how are you, is quickly released.
Then, so long, who cares; not I.
How quickly through corridors of time, we sail,
Forgetting the people, the land.
Yet, Jerusalem
has branded her love within me,
A love, so special and grand.
So, shalom means peace, til we meet again,
I'll never, to you say good-bye.
It's in you, Jerusalem, my spirit does live,
A burning flame that will never die.
