To Speak About Changes Was to Speak Love by Yotam Ben-Or Quartet


It's been a long time since I've heard from you.
I have not received even a little piece of paper,
even like an official notice from offices
which have forgotten my name and my existence.

The generation machine is still sweet
between my thighs, but for a long time
I haven't felt the sweetness of a letter between my eyes.

We did not stay long enough together
to erect for ourselves a lovers monument.

Now time comes in place of time.
Sadness is changing its people like clothes
and your serious face is slicing your life:
each slice with another man on it.

Once we talked about changes.
To speak about changes was to speak love.
