Tell Us When

Sung by: Chanale Fellig
Album: Chanale and Friends

City walls please share with me
The secrets that you hide
I want to know the legacy
Of those who lived inside
For years you stand there silently
Never said one word
City walls it's time you share
The secrets that you heard

City streets I want to know
The thoughts you keep within
Tell me of the journeys
All the places where they've been
For years they walked on cobblestones
Down your narrow streets
Don’t you think the time has come
For you to finally speak

Tell us of the miracles
The once upon a time went on
Connect us to our people
Oh it's you we count upon
Read the final pages
Of the book of Yisroel
Tell us when the time will come
When in your walls we’ll dwell

City homes, confide is me
The treasures that you hold
For years you kept the heritage
Their stories never told
Tell of the history
The nation you loved well
City homes it's time now
Yes it's time for you to tell

Tell us of a nation
That once upon a time you knew
Help us to discover
What it means to be a Jew
Every stone a witness
Throughout the night and day
Tell us when the time arrives
When in your walls we'll stay

City walls please share with me
The secrets that you hide
I want to know the legacy
I want to know
For years you stand there silently
Never said one word
City walls it's time you share
The secrets that you heard
