Lyrics “Un Lugar”

Y ahora que, que mas quieres de mi
(And now what, what else do you want from me?)

Si te llevaste todo lo que te di
(If you took everything I gave you)

Aprovechaste la oportunidad
(You took advantage of the opportunity)

 

Excavaste mi profundidad
(You excavated my depth)

 

Ya no queda mas (x4)
(There’s nothing left)

 

Y ahora que ya no puedo fingir
(And now that I can’t pretend anymore)

No hablaré, qué más puedo decir
(I will not talk, what else can I say)

Descansa mi corazón bajo el concreto
(Rest my heart under the concrete)

 

Y sigue lleno de amor, más que repleto
(And it’s still full of love, more than completely full)

 

Ahora sé, no te puedo olvidar
(Now I know, I can’t forget you)

 

Quisiera contigo volver a empezar
(I’d like to start over with you)

 

Huir de aquí dejar atrás todo esto
(Run away from here and leave all of this behind)

 

Y perdonarte amor vivir el momento
(And forgive you my love, live in the moment)

 

Ya no queda mas (x4)
(There’s nothing left)

 

Yo conozco un lugar
(I know a place)

Y te quiero llevar
(And I want to take you)

Contigo descubrir lo que está aquí
(Discover what’s here with you)

 

Me gusta, que compartes lo que tienes
(I like, that you share what you have)

Y eres amable no solo si te conviene
(And you are kind not only if it’s good for you)

Siempre provienes decora y pasamos horas
(You always come from a place, you decorate and we spend hours)

Hablando pa’ conocernos o en la puerta del silencio eterno
(Talking to know each other or at the door of eternal silence)

Haciendo jugo de apio y leyendo sabio
(Making celery juice and reading wise stuff)

 

Me encanta tu optimismo, tu creencia en los milagros
(I love your optimism, your belief in miracles)

 

Te conozco hace mil años respirando incienso
(I know you since a thousand years ago breathing incense)

 

Por eso siempre me llamas cada vez que yo te pienso
(Because of this you always call me each time I think of you)

 

En blanco el lienzo, no lo manchemos de mentiras
(The canvas is blank, lets not stain it with lies)

 

Basemos esta unión en la disciplina y la buena vida
(Let’s base this union in discipline and the good life)

Vegetariana, saludable en la comida
(Vegetarian, healthy in food)

No toma, no droga, no fuma cancer suicida
(Doesn’t drink, doesn’t do drugs, doesn’t smoke suicidal cancer)

Solo sin semilla, y par de hongos en la pizza
(Only “seedless” (cannabis), and a pair of mushrooms in the pizza)

Viviendo en humildad pero muertos de la risa
(Living in humility but laughing to death)

Nada ‘e prisa, aquí no hay decepción alguna
(Not in a rush, there’s no disappointment here)

Solo dos almas desnudas meditando como Buda
(Only two bare souls meditating like Buda)

 

Yo conozco un lugar
(I know of a place)

Y te quiero llevar
(And I want to take you there)

Contigo descubrir lo que está aquí
(Find out what’s there with you)

 

Ahora sé, no te puedo olvidar
(Now I know, I can’t forget you)

 

Quisiera contigo volver a empezar
(I’d like to start over with you)

 

Huir de aquí dejar atrás todo esto
(Run away from here and leave all of this behind)

Y entregarte amor cada momento
(And deliver love to you every moment)

 

Yo conozco un lugar
(I know of a place)

Y te quiero llevar

Contigo descubrir lo que está aquí
(Find out what’s there with you)
