El dia que aprendiste a soñar

(Scroll down for English) Esta es una de las ultimas canciones que he escrito. Ha estado en un papel garabateado por varios meses y esta es la primera vez que toma vida digital. Es una canción con doble intención, la primera es para cantarle a mi hijo al que le debía su canción por varios años y al verlo crecer me ha inspirado a escribirle esto. La segunda se las dejo de tarea. A ver que les parece.

El dia que aprendiste a soñar

Se abrieron los almanaques
y llenaron el estanque de agua bautismal
Cantaron los ruiseñores
Se arrastraron caracoles hacia la ciudad

Declaré mi día feriado
Y encerraron con candado al cuervo del dolor
Se subieron las banderas
Limpiaron las carreteras, se prohibió decir no

Y se creo la solución
Hiciste al sol brillar
El día que aprendiste a soñar

Bailaron los alquimistas
Y cantaron los artistas locos de pasión
Encontraste un silabario
Se vaciaron los armarios, se encendió el reloj

Resolviste el crucigrama
De quien vive de la cama al auto de sol a sol
Y a vos te salieron alas
Que dejaron en la grama plumas del adios

Y se creo la solución
Hiciste al sol brillar
El día que aprendiste a soñar


* Rough translation * This is one of my most recent songs, this is actually the first time that I transcribe it to the computer. It has been sitting in my paper notebook for a while. This is a double aimed song, first I wrote it for my son to who I owed his own song for years and now that I see him growing up, it inspired me to write this lyrics, the second reason is … I’d better let you figure it out. Let me know what you think.

The day you learned to dream

The almanacs were opened
And the pool was filled with baptismal water
The nightingales sang
and snails crawled towards the city

I declared my new holiday
And the crow of pain was locked out
Flags rose,
Streets got cleaned and prohibited was to say No

The solution was created
You made the sun shine
The day you learned to dream

The alchemists danced
Out of passion the artists sang
You found a phonics book
The closets were emptied and the clock woke up

You solved the puzzle
about who lives between the bed and the car
And you got your own wings
and dropped goodbyes of feathers on the grass

The solution was created
You made the sun shine
The day you learned to dream
