      One of the singers who performed at the Zochrim memorial ceremony on Israel's Remembarance Day was Idan Amedi, who performed his song “Fighters’ Pain”. Amedi, who served as a fighter in the Engineering Corps, wrote the song about the pain and trauma that soldiers sometimes go through during their military service. He performed the song when he competed on the Israeli television show “A Star is Born” (Israeli version of "American Idol") and later released the song as a single.

      Fighters’ Pain

      First night alone,
      I sit and write you a letter
      About everything that happened
      what exactly happened

      Letters appear on the wall
      ‘I am fear, nice to meet you’
      The characters like to play
      They move here in the empty house

      And you do not know how much
      I tried to hide from you
      The nightmares
      The screams and blood on the uniform
      You do not understand that
      I am no longer me
      The pictures from that night are running
      The tears, the pain of the warriors

      It’s the first night you're there,
      I lie there thinking, I do not fall asleep
      The silence is slowly playing
      I dedicate to you a song with no name
      A song with no name.
