about

A true story

lyrics

I first found God when I was fifteen at the highschool concert hall,
She was in the orchestra I was in the band, I remember it well.
At first I saw that pretty little girl in boots eight inches tall,
that made her waiver like an angel playing violin on top of the berlin wall.
She looked so respelndnt in her ugly highschool sweater
That I knew right then and there that my hear just had to get her.
She played a song so sweet that all that I could hear
Was the voices of her fathers calling me
calling to me loud and clear.

Later in the year after having read "the broken wings" by Khalil Gibran
I gather up the courage to ask her on a date, so I asked her on one.
She looked at me and said, with eyes as grey as night,
She couldn't do it, because I wasn't Jewish, it would never be right
So I studied all night long and I practiced every day,
All six hundred Mitzvahs and the Aleph Bet Vav Gimmel Dalet Hey

Two weeks later I heard from her sister that she had been out on a date,
with a a boy with money and a drop down car, the kind I loved to hate.
When I asked her about this new boy, was he one of the chosen or one of the goy,
She said the later and I said "oy" and my heart just started to cry.

Well the lesson that I've come to know after looking back from so far,
If the feeling was true the you can always use it forever as a guiding star,
Beacause I still praise God and I study all the laws year after year,
Call him in his private number and I offer him up this prayer,
I say: Thank you Thank you for all this pain, deep inside of me,
if it wasnt for all this pain, I would probably just be happy, or something.
