Nickel Creek - Sabra Girl Lyrics



lonely the life, that once, i led
strange the paths, on which, we tread
led me to you, unlikely but true
sabra girl, clouding my view

rainy the day, the first time we met
deep was the talk, forever my debt
it didnt seem wrong, to sing a sad song
sabra girl, soon you'd be gone

early the morning, and sad the goodbye
with a wave of your hand and, a smile of your eye
so lately did meet, no sooner depart
sabra girl, homeward must start

rosy the lines that you wrote with your hand
reading between them to misunderstand
i made the mistake you said not to make...

yes reading your letters conviction did grow
i thought it a chance, i knew i must go
its hard to believe i could be so naive
sabra girl, flattered but deceived

now you just told me that friendship is all
im forced to repair the breach in my wall
illusions and dream as usual it seems
sabra girl, they have been my downfall

lonely the life, and dismal the view
closed is the road, that leads to you
since better cant be, as friends we'll agree
sabra girl, time will cure me

    Love this.

  5. The Shaver Ranch + Wolves

    I couldn't have stumbled across this song in a more poetic time in my life... It's quite Eerie really...

  6. Nachtuil36

    Is this the most beautiful sad love song we ever heard ? I want to believe this girl from Sabra actually met with Andy Irvine. And Nickel Creek sang/played the ultimate most beautiful version with their singer's velvet voice !!!!

  7. Joseph Smeall

    This is so beautiful, it makes my hair stand on end.

  8. Shaun Power

    This song was writen by Andy Irvine of the Irish group Planxty. His excellent original recording is also on youtube .

    Lisa Mischke

    Love them!

    I had such a crush on a girl named Sabra in grade 6. OMG she was beautiful.

  10. Cassio Peia

    Seni görmeden önce yalnızdım,
    Hayatta inandığım karmaşık yollar beni sana getirdi
    İnanılması güç ama öyle oldu
    İlk olarak yağmurlu bir günde karşılaştık,
    Derin bir sohbete daldık,
    Bu benim sonsuza dek beklentim oldu(?)
    Hüzünlü bir şarkı söylemeyi yanlış bulmuyorum,
    Çünkü Sabra kız, birazdan gitmiş olacaksın"
    Sabahın erken saatlerinde "Hoşçakal!" demek çok zor,
    Senin ellerinin hareketleri ve gözlerinin gülümsemesi ile.
    Çok geç karşılaştık seninle,
    Harekete geçmek için erken,
    Sabra kız, eve doğru yol alalım.
    Ellerinle yazdığın pembe satırlar,
    Bunun bir şans olduğunu düşündüm ama biliyordum, gitmeliydim.
    İnanılması çok zor, oldukça naif olmalıyım.
    Sabra kız, gururlu ama aldatılmış.
    Şimdi bana bütün bunların arkadaşlıktan ibaret olduğunu söylüyorsun,
    Şimdi duvarlarımdaki tüm yıkıntıları onarmak için güçlüyüm,
    Hayaller ve illüzyonlar her zaman gördüklerimden,
    Sabra kız, onların hepsi benim yıkıntılarım
    Yalnız yaşam ve onun kasvetli görünümü 
    Kapalı yollar sana öncülük edecek,
    Çünkü daha iyisi olamaz,
    Birbirimizi arkadaş olarak göreceğiz,
    Sabra kız, zaman beni tedavi edecek
    ...

  12. Sabra Thomas-Gray

    Always feel like this song is about me :) 

  13. James Day

    TIL: Sabra girl refers to a girl that is a Jew born in Israel. Interesting...

  14. Van Man

    I think Andy Irvine should get some of the credit for writing the words and music, around 1968.
