lyrics

Wandering in the dark of night, through the lifeless outskirts streets,
With their cement heart and steel lungs swallowing up all my thoughts
In spite of dawn is near, everything is still sleeping in silence,
lulled by rain, whose ticking tumbles on houses roofs with its hypnotizing pounding

Falling drops sweetly strike my face, mixing with the flowing tears,
As my fragile hopes are shattered by this empty isolation.
I’ve walked along every corner of my subconscious,
in vain, Without finding any answer.

When solitude shines on its own
All my certainties eclipse, facing the unknown.
Inquietude dries all this flow,
Like rays of an unborn sun

Now that my childhood dreams are vaguer, as time goes by,
I’ll never have a second chance until when I’ll pass away.
“A common person walking to and fro across life’s blind alleys”, they’ll think
And a grave will be like home to me when I am gone.

When solitude shines on its own
All my certainties eclipse, facing the unknown.
Inquietude dries all this flow,
Like rays of an unborn sun

I’m almost home. I only have to reach the end of the street.
Now a starry nightsky leads me through houses rows.
I fall asleep while dawn appears at sunrise.
