MIRI!!!!! You have a keen perception of the obvious.

PS, can you translate the lyrics to the Tomer Yosef video? I can get the jist but the Hebrew is not good enough to figure it all out.

the gist is more or less what it is- a guy being obsessive about the fact that his girlfriend broke up with him. most of the lyrics are about how he tries to think of moving on and what comes next until he doesn't have the strength anymore; about him not getting out of bed without convincing himself that they won't go to sleep alone that night; etc. some of the lyrics I can't quite make out, either bc he's not enunciating clearly or bc I don't know the words he's using. also some things I'm just missing, like the theme about standing on the side. it's repeated two or three times, but I can't quite make out the signifigance. as to directly telling the story of the video, the end bit is left as a mystery; he seems to be raising her from the dead, but if you notice, right at the beginning of the video, the photograph taken at the end is taped up on the wall. I'm still trying to figure it out. maybe we should ask Tobie.

נתתי כל מה שיכולתי
לא היה מי שהיה לי כמו שאת ידעת
ואיך עכשיו פתאום נדמה לי שהזמן כבר לא קורא לי להמתין בצד
את אהובתי
בלי לדעת להיות שלי
את אהובתי
בלי לדעת להיות איתי

כואב הראש מלנסות לחשוב לבד על מה בסדר ומה קורה עכשיו
וענן סמיך של עשב מערפל את מה שכן או לא נחשב
ואז קורה שאין כבר כח והאיזון הוא לא נינוח ושהכל ילך קיבינמאט
ואי אפשר לקום בבוקר בעירנות עוינת רק שבסוף היום לא נלך לישון לבד..

את אהובתי
בלי לדעת להיות שלי
את אהובתי
בלי לדעת להיות איתי
את אהובתי
בלי לדעת להיות שלי
את אהובתי

נמצא מקום חמים באמצע
ונבוא לשם לרגע יותר מידי איבדנו מהצד
את לא שומעת שברקע אין כבר יש שקט יש רק מתח ואל תבכי עכשיו..

את אהובתי
בלי לדעת להיות שלי
את אהובתי
בלי לדעת להיות איתי
את אהבותי
בלי לדעת להיות שלי
את אהובתי
בלי לדעת להיות איתי

I gave you all I could
There was no one I had like you knew
And now there isn't (?)
Suddenly, it seems that time isn't calling me to stand beside my love
Without knowing to be mine, my love
without knowing to be with me

My head hurts from trying to think alone what's alright and what happens now.
And a thick cloud of grass (?Maybe typo and sadness?) obscures what is or isn't thought
And then it happens that there isn't strength and the balance isn't serene and everything is going ?? (a word so weird it's not in the dictionary)
And it's impossible to get up in the morning wide awake
Just that at the end of the day, we shouldn't sleep alone...

(chorus)

We'll find an innocent place in the middle
And we'll come there for one second more that we lost from the side (?)
You don't hear that in the background, already there isn't is (yes, I know, but he says both) quiet, there is only tension and now, don't cry

(chorus)

The translation might be off, because frankly that's really horrible garbled Hebrew without normal sentences or anything. Maybe the transcript of the lyrics is wrong or maybe the man just doesn't make sense.
