Title: Azoy vi a khulem, ze ikh atsind (Like a Dream I Now See)
Transcription: Miriam Isaacs
Translation: Miriam Isaacs

Information: This song combines longing for lost home with thwarted love.



Azoy vi a khulem, ze ikh atsind,
Ven ikh dermon mikh, ven ikh bin geven a klayn kind.
Ot ze ikh dem tatn, ot ze ikh mayn mamen
Do ze ikh mayn shtibele, vi mayn vigele iz geshtanen.

Refrain:
Oy oy oy feygele (x2),
In mayn hartsn iz dokh zeyer shver,
Vayl ven du kenst libn vem dayn harts bagert,
Ikh lib dikh nor mayn libe iz geshtert.

As in a dream, I now see,
when I recall when I was a small child.
I see my father, I see my mother,
I see my little house, where my cradle stood.

Refrain:
Oh, little bird (x2)
my heart is heavy,
because you may love whom you wish.
I love you but my love is thwarted.
