Shira tells how she came to compose this song when she was in
«It happened in Meherabad at the beginning of January 2008, a few days before I had to return to
I didn’t understand and asked Baba, "Why now, when I have this rare opportunity to be alone with You in the Samadhi?"
Then Baba said, "I want you to write a song for Me and to sing this song one day before you leave Meherabad, during Arti time."
So I went out of the Samadhi and sat down not far from it … and after five minutes I had the words and music.»
The name of the song is “I Have Nothing Except You.” Listen to Shira sing the song here. Here is Shira’s translation of the Hebrew lyrics:
I see Your face all the time
shine inside of me like a big sun
now I am ready to hear what You want to tell me
suddenly I feel holiness
suddenly I feel weakness
and You are looking at me with a smile on Your face.
I have nothing except You …
