    Default what is this lyric meaning? Ofra Haza- show me

    Show me, show me

    Sitting around the table
    Learning the lesson of years
    So far away in heaven
    Someone is shedding a tear

    Nobody knows, nobody knows
    Who will pay, who will stay another day

    Show me, show me the light
    Open the door
    Tell me, tell me I'm right
    Show me some more

    Dancing around the table
    Watching the candles light up
    Feeling the fire inside me
    Moving my lips to the cup

    Everyone knows, everyone knows
    When they pay, they will stay another day

    Show me, show me the light
    Open the door
    Hold me, hold me so tight
    Leave me no more

    Im en ani li mi li mi li
    Im en ani li mi li mi

    Show me, show me the light
    Open the door
    Tell me, tell me I'm right
    Show me some more

    Show me, show me the light
    Open the door
    Hold me, hold me so tight
    Leave me no more

    Im en ani li mi li mi li
    Im en ani li mi li mi
    Im en ani li mi li mi li



    I didnt understand this song.it talk about heaven,but then it ask something about payment and staying.does the writer say about rent a heaven?I really confused

    Hmm...this song is really about living the life to fullest as this journey can end anytime. Its also about sharing and enjoying love with others. Listening to elders. I love Ofra's music. This song and the album was made for European \Us listeners. Its beautifly made and they implemented many middle eastern elements into the song.

    what do you mean by living the life to fullest?

    I still didnt get it. I will try to interpret as best as I can and help me to find hidden meanings that I didnt get..

    Sitting around the table
    Learning the lesson of years
    So far away in heaven
    Someone is shedding a tear

    Nobody knows, nobody knows
    Who will pay, who will stay another day

    what is "lesson of years"? Maybe this part is what you say about learning from elders. but I didnt see any relation between first 2 sentence and 2 sentence after that. shes learning lesson and somebody crying from heaven. the last 2 part talk about paying which I dont understand

    Dancing around the table
    Watching the candles light up
    Feeling the fire inside me
    Moving my lips to the cup

    Everyone knows, everyone knows
    When they pay, they will stay another day

    this one more confusing..

    Show me, show me the light
    Open the door
    Hold me, hold me so tight
    Leave me no more

    this is the reff. what she want? she want to learn something new? I tought open the door is knowledge door. but what to hold?why she wanna left?


    well Im an asian.I didnt understand much about europe culture.especially middle east about europe..

    share pls
