Lyrics and Music: Me'ir Ariel
Translated by Noa

Upon release, the doctors recommended a monthly
Visit to the aviation pier,
It does me good to see a big steel bird
Taking off through a transparent tear
So now I'm feeling better, less pressure on
The laundered eye, a little less to fear.

I choose a positive afternoon,
The airport's straight ahead
I tell myself on the way down there:
"could this be another addiction to dread?"
Myself replies, with a glimmer in her eyes:
"we could always do push-ups instead".

Terminal, je t'aime, I love you terminal, bella mia.

The doors guess my intentions
And slide to let me in
I take my steppin' slowly
With a ritual back-side swing,
Intercontinental jive
Is live and tickling

I gotta calm down in the lavatoire
I look into the mirror, a maniac looks back
Terminal's a chick like all chicks are
I know at least a dozen girls like that

She's standing there, with her short cropped hair,
Like something suspicious aboard swissair
A real bomb-shell,
Her earring hook,
The security guard gives her penetrating look.

Terminal, je t'aime, I love you terminal, bella mia.

I gotta find a flight, but I don't know how!
Rome through zurich is leaving about now
Polite pager lady telling me it's time
Deep inside I've made up my mind

Polite pager is getting uptight
I gotta go upstairs and see my flight!
Inside, my passion's burning bright!

She's running now, she's flying high
Taking off into the blood-red sky
Reflected in this tearful joker's eyes

Terminal, je t'aime, I love you terminal, bella mia.

It's all a joke, I say to me
Then suddenly I hear the boom!
Explosion tears the sky apart
A panicked flurry fills the room
And so I turn and take a bow
I think I'm feeling better now.

Upon release, the doctors recommended a monthly
Visit to the aviation pier,
It really does me good to see a big steel bird
Take off through a transparent tear,
After that the pressure's not so bad
There's so much less to fear
