Yael Naim – Shelcha lyrics

Too many screams in my throat
Too many faces
Too many plans
That I wanted to change
So many words
If I can tell you
There's no other love
But the one I live with you

Still don't know how
We let all this happened
Will this war last forever and ever?
They've burned my hands
Cut my hair and steal my soul
But do you really want to know?

Rest in peace with my sorrows
Are we alone or together
Or are you my greatest war?

    I may be wrong but on a first listen I would think its about two lovers seperated physically or emotionally. Perhaps because of a war. (. How we let all of this happen. Will this war last forever) the woman is lonely and wonders why he's so distant. The man sounds like a soldier (. Cut my hair) whose experienced a lot of bloodshed and death(too many screams in my throat, too many faces, steal my soul) or perhaps torture he's been tortured. But he has difficulty telling her this and it causes conflict with his lover.
