Matisyahu's Jerusalem (Esta Noite Sinto-me Assim (v))

The thing I love in this song is the sense of suffering and recover, of harmed past and strong hope that it transmits to me.

In the ancient days, we will return with no delay
Picking up the bounty and the spoils on our way
We’ve been traveling from state to state
And them don’t understand what they say
3,000 years with no place to be
And they want us to give up our milk and honey
Don’t you see, it’s not about the land or the sea
Not the country but the dwelling of his majesty

Jerusalem, if I forget you,
fire not gonna come from me tongue.
Jerusalem, if I forget you,
let my right hand forget what it’s supposed to do.

Rebuild the temple and the crown of glory
Years gone by, about sixty
We were burn in the oven in this century
And the gas tried to choke, but it couldn’t choke me
We will not lie down and we will not fall asleep
So they come overseas, yes they’re trying to be free
Erase the demons out of our memory
Change your name and your identity
Afraid of the truth and our dark history
Why is everybody always chasing we
Cut off the roots of your family tree
Don't you know that's not the way to be


Caught up in these ways, and the worlds gone craze
Don’t you know it’s just a phase
Case of the Simon says
If I forget the truth then my words won’t penetrate
Babylon burning in the place, can’t see through the haze
Chop down all of them dirty ways,
That’s the price that you pay for selling lies to the youth
No way, not ok, oh no way, not ok, hey

Aint no one gonna break my stride
Aint no one gonna pull me down
Oh no, I got to keep on moving
Aint no one gonna break my stride
Aint no one gonna pull me down
Oh no, I got to keep on moving state


Jerusalem, if I forget you
