Judaism Alive: Lyrics


Bo’I

Bo'i V'shalom, Ateret Baalah, Gam B'simcha U'vtzahala

Toch emunei Am Segulah

Bo'i Kalah, Bo'i Kalah. Bo'i Kalah, Bo'i Kalah. Ani

L'dodi, V'dodi Li. HaRoeh, Bashoshanim.

Ani L'dodi, V'dodi Li. HaRoeh. Bashoshanim.

Coke and a Gemara

Some people like kicking back watching football in the rain

Some people like reading Vonnegut while lying on the Seine

Some people like climbing mountains that no men climbed before

Other people stay in bed and throw darts at their door

Some people drown their sorrows by sleeping in at Shea

But give me a Coke and a Gemara and I’ll be on my way

CHORUS:

Give me a coke and a Gemara, Give me Tosefos Lamed Hey

Give me a coke and a Gemara – I can sit just for the day

Some people have such fine tastes, they need a Pesach in Gestat

Other people can’t sit still until they buy what their friends got

I know a guy who likes roller skating down Malibu Beach

I also know a girl down at Cal Tech who lives just to teach

Some people drown their sorrows by sleeping in at Shea

But give me a Coke and a Gemara and I’ll be on my way

CHORUS

Give me a coke and a Gemara, Give me Tosefos Lamed Hey

Give me a coke and a Gemara – I can sit just for the day

BRIDGE

You can live for the moment

You can live for a dream

You can live searching for stardust

Or trying to find the source of a stream

But give me that Bava Kama

Or else I’m gonna scream

CHORUS

Give me a coke and a Gemara, Give me Tosefos Lamed Hey

Give me a coke and a Gemara – I can sit just for the day

Forever Gone

I fear the dark, my bones feel so cold

I’ve been around I feel so old

Why did you do it,

Why did you go away?

We’ve been down this road for years

We’ve both been drowned byr a billion tears

Why did you do it,

Why did go away ?

Chorus:

For-ever gone

Away

For-ever gone

Away

Verse 2

I've had hopes, I've had dreams

I've been kicked I've been reamed

Why did you do it,

Why did you have to say?

Even now, and even here

I have had hopes it got so clear

Why did you do it,

Why wont you let me stay?

In my mind, in the air

I've tried so hard, and been so scared

Why did I do it

Why did I go astray?

It was easy, took no thought

to shout out those names, it hit the spot [hurt a lot]

Why did I do it,

Why did I have to say?

Great Beis Midrash in the Sky

They’re all standing together as one

The Chafetz Chaim, Rav Kook and the Vilna Gaon

My my what a beautiful sight it is.

Learning Torah, swaying side by side

They shine on forever

In the Great Beis Midrash in the Sky

Hashem Hold On 

Nobody was expecting the news that day

Nobody thought it would play out this way

Too soon, too short,

Too hard, too dark

Life don’t give you a schedule

But we sure could’ve used a Divine memo

CHORUS

Well Hashem, I am holding on, staying strong , stay

ing strong

Hashem as you have a plan

I’ll hold on, I’ll hold on

VERSE #2

Heartache and heartbreak rears its head

Trying to recall the words we said

Too few, too timed

I replay the parts

Could it have gone differently?

Could it get there some other way

Well Hashem, I am holding on, staying strong , stay

ing strong

Hashem as you have a plan

I’ll hold on, I’ll hold on

I Daven

Life has beat you up, knocked you down again

To the ground, searching for a way back up.

Strength has slipped away, and left emptiness in its wake

Find a seat, and open up your prayer book

Well I

hope the words

will guide my heart

And let me shine again

So I Daven... And open my heart to Ha-Shem

I Daven .....And all

I feel

is light inside

I Daven .... And make myself one again

You passed

the open windows, and nothing is where it should be

Golden opportunities ,

fell

like flowers to the ground

You promised never again, but find the ark has clos

ed

So find a seat, and open up your prayer book

Well I hope the pages ignite my soul

And let me fly again

So I Daven... And open my heart to Ha-Shem

I Daven .....And all I feel is light inside

I Daven .... And make myself

one again

Bridge:

There’s a hurricane inside your mind

Judaism Alive 

Life is moving fast, and life is way too short

There were these dreams I had, where my boat road o

ut to shore

And my passion was stoked strong

And my vision went deep and long

My Judaism’s Alive, It’s pumping through my veins

Le Chaim to Life, jump aboard this bullet train

Mishmar 

There’s a cool chill runnin up my spine

Taste’s so sweet , must be wine

Its that feeling I get every Thursday Night,

When I break out my talmud and open the light.

I’ll sing and learn call me a nerd

How can you judge what you haven’t heard?

It’s that feeling I get when my legs go week

As the chulent comes out overflowing with meat

Mishmar, Oh Mishmar – the night comes to life and your worr

ies fade.

Mishmar, Oh mishmar - Pass me a fork and a plate

You come here tired and need your sleep

But you’ll leave feeling wired and suddenly leap

There’s a kind of magic in the air

That wakes you up just by learning in your chair.

Bite into my chips n’ sip my drink

Hear a nice vort from Aryeh Fink

These is an evening you’ll never forget

The night you stayed up learning till you sweat.

Mishmar, Oh Mishmar – the night comes to life and your worr

ies fade.

Mishmar, Oh mishmar - Pass me a fork and a plate

Raining in Manhattan

What did I do to get your cup on me?

In the house where I’m supposed to be

So I scatter in reverse, make my way back

Hoping to get on at the midnight track

But there’s a thunder crackling only miles away

Funny that a sound can ruin your day

It’s Raining in Manhattan and another Sukkah sits alone

I’d spend 7 days, If I could, away from my home

But I’ll wait patiently, for a million years

To get another shot, if it ever appears

I live to be covered by your warm cloud

And one day to make you oh so proud

But there’s a thunder crackling only miles away

Funny that a sound can ruin your day

It’s Raining in Manhattan and another Sukkah sits alone

I’d spend 7 days, If I could, away from my home

Remember 

Take my hand,

Hold on tight,

Close your eyes,

And I’ll take you back.

Walk beside me,

And dream tonight,

I’ll be there,

By your side.

Bridge:

We were young,

Full of hope,

When dreams ruled and filled the night.

We were young,

Times were hard,

And yet still smiles shined so bright.

Chorus:

Remember when, we were young,

Remember when, we found love.

Remember when, we fought hard,

Remember when, we passed through.

Bridge:

We were young,

Full of hope,

When dreams ruled and filled the night.

We were young,

Times were hard,

And yet still smiles shined so bright.

Instrumental Solo

Day by day,

Night by night,

We’ll make it through,

Side by side.

Against the tide,

We’ll sacrifice

The easy road

For real life.

Bridge:

We were young,

Full of hope,

When dreams ruled and filled the night.

We were young,

Times were hard,

And yet still smiles shined so bright.

Chorus:

Remember when, we were young,

Remember when, we found love.

Remember when, we fought hard,

Remember when, we passed through.

Remember when, we were young,

Remember when, we found love.

Remember when, we fought hard,

Remember when, remember when...

Take my hand,

Hold on tight.

Close your eyes,

And we’ll sleep tonight.

Shira on the Water 

We stand at the water, waiting for the sign

Gazing at the life, we wished we left behind

Living life, laughter and tears

Taking chances, these will be our best years

Shira Al HaYam

Strong Dreams

Moses dreamed of entering the Land

G-d said “son, you only get what you can”

Joseph thought he’d be forever by his fathers side

G-d said, “boy, it’s time for you to run and hide”

Bridge

When the floor beneath you seems to recede

And you lost the rug where you used to put feet

Just know

Chorus

Strong dreams don’t die they just whisper and fly

Waiting for G-d to bring it down

Strong dreams don’t die they just soar to the sky

Waiting for G-d to bring it down

Rabbi Akiva sat there with a smile on his face

While they though it was the end of the human race

The Eish Kodesh never saw his writings come to life

He would have loved the class I was at last night.
