Dear Songwriting+ patrons, thank you so much for your patience! Here is the first stab at a new song for January. 

Crazy

Adel olam lishochen me’onah
Hanothen leadam imri binah

I just wanted to sing songs with you
But you had to make it into something crazy
You’re always making it into something crazy
And then I can’t have a relationship with you
Because you’re so fucking crazy
You ask why I don’t want to sing songs with you
It’s because you’re crazy

Adel olam lishochen me’onah
Hanothen leadam imri binah

You’re so fucking crazy
You drive me crazy
You don’t even know that you’re crazy

Adel olam lishochen me’onah
Hanothen leadam imri binah

And then I get scared that you’ll die
And that you’ll take all this heritage with you
I want you to heal before you die
But you won’t do anything to heal
You’re just so fucking crazy
And you don’t know that you’re crazy

Adel olam lishochen me’onah
Hanothen leadam imri binah

And I can’t remember the words to this song
I want you to teach me the words to this song again
But I can’t call you because you’re fucking crazy
You’re so fucking crazy
And I can’t take it that you’re crazy

Adel olam lishochen me’onah
Hanothen leadam imri binah

So I just keep repeating the chorus
Because I can’t remember any of the other words
And 4,000 years of heritage are leaving us
