Yael Naim Too Long Lyrics

Last updated: 11/28/2008 10:00:00 AM

I waited for so long
Outside myself
You see I was pretending
To be someone else
I was longing to see
Who I wanted to be

And I've been waiting on my own
I've been waiting for too long
Not strong enough to be with you
And I've been making up my world
I've been painting it with gold
Not strong enough to see you
Oh

I irrigate illusions
Then let them grow
How can I pacify myself
And let go?
And I run wild to see
Who I turned out to be

I've been waiting on my own
I've been waiting for too long
Not strong enough to be with you
And I've been making up my world
I've been painting it with gold
Not strong enough to see you

And I've been waiting on my own
I've been waiting for too long
Not strong enough to be with you
And I've been making up my world
I've been painting it with gold
Not strong enough to see you
I've been waiting on my own

(in Hebrew - romanic pronunciation)
Ratsiti ligdol itcha lehizdaken
Yikach ma sheyikach
Yiten ma sheyiten

[Translation:
I wanted to grow up with you
To grow old
Whatever it takes
Whatever it gives]

But it was too cold
In my world
My world

And I've been waiting on my own
I've been waiting for too long
Not strong enough to be with you
And I've been making up my world
I've been painting it with gold
Not strong enough to see you…
See you…
On my own…
Strong enough…
