One man A-Capella - everything you hear was multi tracked by Ray Livnat.
Music by Eyal Amir. Lyrics by Ray Livnat.

Wake:
I find myself beside your hospital bed
bright lights reveal your eyes
still closed as they have been before

I smell the scent of jasmine filling the room
your nose might catch its drift, drawing, intoxicating

I try having one-sided dialogs now,
your ears should sense my tone
stroking them as it whispers:
open your eyes and say that you hear me! don't make me wait
anymore.

I call softly for sleeping beauty - arise!
(unwise)
I try to improvise: I'm asking louder -
open your eyes and say that you hate me! don't make me wait anymore.

Waiting
for your unplanned
waking
while I pretend
taking
so long to have you with me is a burden I can stand

I see Frankie between some records I brought
he asked you for a dance, but you declined politely

I rub lightly the tip of your cotton gown
so thin that with no words
my hands could tell your skin to
open your eyes and say that you want me to leave

Waiting
for your unplanned
waking
while I pretend
taking
so long to have you with me is a burden I can stand

we'd go dancing and be just like Fred and Ginger
(I'll even let you lead if you don't like my moves)
and then I'd give you flowers - the ones you love, that go with your evening dress
we'd hold hands at the movies and make faces as Tracy and Hepburn kiss
we'd share ice-cream for dinner, and I could tell you all about when I had hopes for me to stop

waiting
for your unplanned
waking,
while I pretend
taking
so long to have you with me is a burden I can stand

Arranged and Produced by Eyal Amir

The Great Voice of Ray Livnat reminds me of The Great Voice of Roland Orzabal.....
