KVAR ACHAREI CHATZOT (Hebrew)

IT'S ALREADY AFTER MIDNIGHT (English)

Kvar Acharei Chatzot

Od lo kibu et hayareiach

Ki lifnei kubui orot,

Orot shel kochavim

Notnim od rega kat la'ohavim.

 

Chorus

Machar y'hieh zeh yom chadash

Uma efshar mi yom chadash k'var l'tzapot

Az ten lanu od rega,

Rak od rega

Af al pi sh'k'var acharei chatzot.

 

K'var Acharei Chatzot

Od lo hidliku et haboker

Ki lifnei sh'menakim et ha etmol

Min har'chovot

Notnim lanu od rega kat la'ahavot.

 

Chorus

Machar y'hieh zeh yom chadash

 

K'var Acharei Chatzot

Od lo hidliku et hashemesh

Ki lifnei sh'mechalkim

et ha iton v'hechalav,

Notnim lanu od rega sh'nohav.

 

It's already after midnight

they haven't yet turned off the moon.

Because before "lights out"

star lights,

they give another small moment to lovers.

 

Chorus

Tomorrow it will be another day

And what can you expect from a new day?

So gives us a moment,

just a moment,

even though it's already after midnight.

 

It's already after midnight

They haven't turned on the morning yet

Because before they clean yesterday

from the streets

they give us another tiny moment for love.

 

Chorus

Tomorrow it will be another day

 

It's already after midnight

They haven't turned the sun on yet

Because before they deliver

the newspaper and the milk

They give us another moment for loving.
