They brought me honey,
but I would not eat it.
Food from the honeycomb,
but I would have none.
How can I eat when my love is gone?
How can I taste pleasure when my heart is so low?
They found me at Ramallah
Wandering in Tesh Gibbeon
Looking for the one I love
Even as I searched, I grew far from you
In my distress, I abandoned you
Come with us, and drown your sorrows
Take pleasure, for love has gone
How can I forget you
Who gave my life to me
How can I turn away
From the one who will come for me
It was not you who abandoned me
But I who lost myself from you
Do not forget the one you love
Rescue me from the haze of love
