about

The Hazelnuts’ new album – “The Birth of Hope” is the love child of the Hazelnuts trio – Shira Z. Carmel, Yifeat Ziv and Anat Moshkovski with producer Shuzin.

The trio’s tight vocal harmonies, rooted in their swinging days as a close-harmony-singing group, are reinterpreted and reimagined into the here and now, and this time with their own songs.

In the album, the “Hazel Sisters” (as they’re called in Hebrew) paint a sonorous world of magical hummingbirds, poignant sunflower-girls and moonlit journeys, leaving the listeners with a soft yet explicit message– the Birth of Hope.

Track Name: Time Tale
Time Tale
Music and Lyrics: Shira Z. Carmel

One step at a time…
Baby sister - time ain’t gonna slow down for you
So you better slow down for yourself

It hurts! And it’s gonna hurt some more…
Slow down, baby sister, slow down
The world hurts! from the billows to the core
So to ease the pain, it moves around
Baby sister - time …
One step at a time…
Once upon a time,
The world began to move around
to ease the pain
and thus, created time

So it’s no wonder (oh, what a wonder!)
time heals all wounds.

Baby sister time ain’t gonna slow down for you
So you better slow down for yourself,
Baby sister time ain’t gonna slow down for you
So you better take time and slow down for yourself
Track Name: Hummingbird
Hummingbird
Music and Lyrics: Shira Z. Carmel

Hummingbird
Come
Hum
With me
I’ll be your honeysuckle
Come Play

Hummingbird
Majestically
You fly and you stand still at the same time

Hummingbird
Came
Hum
With me
Sip of nocturnal nectar
Come Play

Hummingbird
So Delicately
You’ll be my Wings, I’ll be your strings
Come Play

(ooh oo woo oo..)

Your heart - 1234 BPM
Your wings - 5432 BPM
(Hum with me)

Hummingbird…
Track Name: Sunflower Girl
Sunflower girl
Music and Lyrics: Shira Z. Carmel

I wanna be the sunflower girl
Follow the sun wherever it goes
And in the night time growing my seeds
Then in the morning letting birds feed

I wanna be the sunflower girl
Follow the sun wherever it goes
And in the night time sowing my seeds
Braiding a necklace with dew drops beads

Be that sunflower girl
Bees caressing her curls
And in the twilight, heart on her sleeve
Plucking her petals, counting the leaves

I wanna be the sunflower girl
Follow the sun wherever it goes
And in the night time growing my seeds
Then in the morning letting birds feed

Be that sunflower girl
Bees caressing her curls
And in the evening dance with the weeds
Making some music with the wind in the reeds

I wanna be the sunflower girl…
Track Name: You Again
You again
Music: Shira Z. Carmel / Lyrics: Yahia Lababidi

You again, of the singing wound
here again, lost and found and lost
trafficking in metaphysics and eternity
as the nearest hopes

where to, pilgrim
outdistancing chasms
rationing emotions
seeking sustenance

for the self too subtle and proud
for words
nocturnal flower, nurtured solitude
watered night

there you go, restraining the impulse
to say it all at once
even surrounded by silence
still filled with noise

now, having stirred some thrumming
hour when the moon throws
her full-bodied light
over all, like a silver screen night
of silent films, the whirring
of the reel.
Track Name: Two Five One
Two Five One
Music and Lyrics: Anat Moshkovski

Two five one,
You teach me how to walk not to run,
And you laugh till it hurts
Two five one,
I show you how to dance in the sun,
And it burns to the core

Two five one,
I've noticed something's different
But nothing's changed as far as I'm concerned

Two five one,
Notes fall into place one by one
And the sound is bright
Two five one,
I tell you what i hide from everyone,
When the day is done

Two five one,
I've noticed something's different
But nothing's changed as far as I'm concerned
nothing's changed
nothing's changed
And my past has yet to pass, you know me
Track Name: Where is the One
Where is the one?
Music and Lyrics: Shira Z. Carmel

Where is the one to save us from our misery? Where is the one?
You are the one to save us from our misery… You are the one…
We are the ones to save us from our misery! We are the one…
Track Name: Ten Li - תן לי
תן לי
מילים ולחן: יפעת זיו

תן לי רק סיבה אחת טובה להישאר
הספינה כבר טובעת, הים מקיף אותי מכל הכיוונים
אז תן לי רק סיבה אחת
Track Name: Bliyaal - בליעל
בן בליעל
מילים: שירה ז' כרמל / לחן: האחיות לוז

...
בליעל
לך לך
תבלע אותך
האדמה
וכשהיא
תירק אותך
כרעל
בליעל
אז יקחוך ממעל
ואנחנו ננשום לרווחה
Track Name: The Birth of Hope - פתח תקווה
פתח תקווה
מילים ולחן: שירה ז' כרמל

מבלי לגלוש להסחות דעת,
מבלי להתפתות למתק הייאוש המתפשט ושוקע -
כמו אוויר עומד בניחוח יסמין בערב רפה של חמסין

ניקח עצמנו בידינו,
כל עוד נפשנו הומייה...
איך נוכל להיות עם חופשי בארצנו,
אם עודנו מחזיקים אומה שבויה?

האורות מנצנצים בפתח תקווה
הרשות עוד נתונה
ואנחנו נצא לרחוב
נעשה ונשמע
Track Name: Let's Dance (Bonus Track)
Let's dance
Music and Lyrics: David Bowie

Let's dance - put on your red shoes and dance the blues
Let's dance - to the song they're playing on the radio
Let's sway - while color lights up your face
Let's sway - sway through the crowd to an empty space
If you say run, I'll run with you
And if you say hide, we’ll hide
Because my love for you
Would break my heart in two
If you should fall into my arms
And tremble like a flower

Let's dance - for fear your grace should fall
Let's dance - for fear tonight is all
Let's sway - you could look into my eyes
Let's sway - under the moonlight, this serious moonlight

If you say run…

Let's dance - put on your red shoes and dance the blues
Let's sway - under the moonlight, this serious moonlight…
