This was the original demo of Yesh Tikvah. I composed the song on the 10th of January of 2012. The original lyrics (that predated this version) were different and much more primitive. I directed Avi Newmark & Benny Friedman to Miriam Israeli, who built on my original lyrics. The version presented here was actually recorded on April 1 of 2012 after Miriam wrote these lyrics (I think this was the 3rd draft). There are obviously some small changes that occurred afterwards in the lyrics as well as the melody of the ending of the high part.
