about

Transparent Water is about a close friend who experienced impossible love between an Israeli and a Palestinian, their love was beautiful but unfortunately it had to end. The last verse of the song says:
"If we were like the flowing water,
Transparent, invisible
Then we could cross the borders
Without fear, without problems"

lyrics

Transparent Water (English translation below)

מים זורמים
לנו זה נעים
הים מלא גלים
אך פה שקט וחמים

זה לא , זה לא , זה לא
לא אפשרי

שמש זורחת מעל
ואין עננים בכלל
לנו לא אכפת מה אומרים
ולא מחכים לאישורים

זה לא , זה לא , זה לא
לא אפשרי

השנאה, השנאה, השנאה
היא נצחה את האהבה

אילו היינו כמו מים זורמים
שקופים בלתי נראים
אז היינו את הגבול לחצות
יכולים בלי בעיות

Transparent Water (English Translation)

Water is flowing
It feels pleasant to us
The sea is full of waves
But over here it’s quiet and warm

It cannot, it will not
It is hopeless

The sun is shining above, not a cloud in sight
We don’t care what people say
And we are not waiting for their approval

It cannot, it will not
It is hopeless

The hatred, the hatred, the hatred
Has defeated the love

If we were like the flowing water,
Transparent, invisible
Then we could cross the borders
Without fear, without problems
