Hi, everybody!
I have a strong feeling, that there is something wrong with the lyrics of this song, particularly with the lines 2,3 and 6. Please, can anybody check it? My native language isn't hebrew, I can hear what she sings, but I'm not 100% sure. Thank you!

Thomas222, thank you very much! And still are you sure there is "אכאב" in "אותך אני אכאב ודאי יותר עם בוא הערב".?

You're welcome! Unfortunately, I am sure. That is indeed a very poetic / flowery way of phrasing, but it is valid. Honestly I have no idea how to translate this line. In Keren Tzalul's English translation, she wrote: "I'll probably hurt you more when evening comes", which is not incorrect, but it does not send the right message. To me it sounds like Sarit Hadad is gonna hurt HIM, but what she actually means is that SHE HERSELF will be hurt, she will suffer great pain (or, her heart will ache) because of her longing. Even if she's with someone else, she will suffer greatly because she misses her ex lover.

Oh, Thomas, I really appreciate your interpretation! I've been breaking my head over it! Now I see. Thank you very much! You are the best! Regular smile

could be translated to read, "i'll probably hurt even more when evening comes," or, "it will hurt me even more when evening comes."
