Theme Interpretation: I took the theme of "twist" and approached it by "twisting" a traditional Jewish song into the format of a mid-2000s emo piano ballad.

lyrics

How beautiful your homes are,
And the way that they’re shining
In all of the mid-morning light.

In your dwellings where you’re dwelling
On the love and the splendor,
That lights up the streets outside.

And how good it is to be here,
And how wonderful to see,

All your beautiful houses,
All your beautiful houses,
All your beautiful houses,
Ma tovu, ma tovu, ma tovu.

I remember when you came here
And you shone in the doorway
With rain running down your face.

Expectations of elation
And the awe of creation
Contained in a single place.

And how good it is to be here,
And how wonderful to see,

All your beautiful houses,
All your beautiful houses,
All your beautiful houses,
Ma tovu, ma tovu, ma tovu.
Ma tovu, ma tovu, ma tovu.

And how good it is to be here,
And how wonderful to see,

In your dwellings where you’re dwelling
On the love and the splendor,
That lights up the streets outside.

Letting go of all pretensions
As we’re sheltered in our tents and
We watch the day slip by.

In all your beautiful houses,
In all your beautiful houses,
In all your beautiful houses,
Ma tovu, ma tovu, ma tovu.
Ma tovu, ma tovu, ma tovu.

In all your beautiful houses,
In all your beautiful houses,
In all your beautiful houses,
Ma tovu, ma tovu, ma tovu,
Ma tovu ma tovu, ma tovu.
