Story of Our Lives (pre-Purim Exile song) to One Direction Story of My Life

Story of Our Lives (Exile pre-Purim) to One Direction Story of My Life

When they breached the walls of the temple of the One we call The Name
It tore our hearts open, we died and yet still we remain
They tell us God’s mourning, we’ll again see flesh on our skeletal bones
Feels to us that God has hidden and now we’re left all alone

Is God gone, gone from sight?
Hamaqom supporting me shifts and I slide
We cling to hope that fades into night
Will God’s face ever be seen?

The story of our lives
We’re far from home
Our sheltering Light turned driving Storm
Hashem… is hidden (Hester panim Hester panim)
The story of our lives
Whom our soul loves
Song of songs
but our hearts broke
Inside
The story of our lives (History of history of)

Stolen from those walls are the luchot of our brit with the Name
Ripped our hearts open, but somehow our breath remains
Each of us is mourning, but perhaps the covenant remains still
Our bodies broken, our souls remain and our will.

Let’s have song, song tonight
The fire in our hearts is burning bright
The truth we’ve been clinging to so tight —
We’re in the time between.

The story of our lives
We’re far from home
Our sheltering Light turned driving Storm
Hashem… is hidden (Hester panim Hester panim)
The story of our lives
Whom our soul loves
Song of songs
but our hearts broke
Inside
The story of our lives (History of history of)

And we are waiting for that time to come around
But Hashem each day of ours is like a thousand

The story of our lives
We’re far from home
Our sheltering Light turned driving Storm
Hashem… is hidden
The story of our lives
Whom our soul loves
Song of songs
but our hearts broke
Inside
The story of our lives (History of history of)

The story of our lives
The story of our lives (History of history of)
The story of our lives
