LYRICS Ask me how I’m doing As though you do still care I won’t know how to answer you Still, I cannot bear Another night like yesternight Pretending to be fine with all my might Our story’s ended, this I know I know this to be true Just one short conversation more Is all that I am asking for / Pregunta si he dormido bien Prepárame un café Tomemos desayuno juntos Por última vez Tan sólo un Momento más Un segundito más De complicidad Yo sé que tú ya has encon- trado un nuevo amor Lo entiendo, te respeto pero Igual te pido este favor CHORUS Walk with me Acompáñame un instante Talk with me Compartamos como antes Humour me Compláceme, querido, que mi pena ya pronto pasará Ask me how I'm feeling As though you do still care The answer might get messy Still, I cannot bear Another day Like the other day Spent wondering whether Life is better for you this way Our story's over, this I know I know this much is true Just wishing you were here with me; for one last taste of normalcy CHORUS Walk with me Acompáñame un instante Talk with me Compartamos como antes Humour me Compláceme, querido, que mi pena ya... This too shall pass Soy mujer, ergo, valiente I'll wear the mask Más que nada soy consciente I just had to ask Consciente que mi pena, que mi soledad pronto pasará.
LYRICS Come in from the storm Old friend, it's been too long The years have not been kind To you and our kind Been waiting on this stool for you To find your way back home to me Come sit so I can braid your hair And love you again. The lights shine much too bright For us to hide the truth For you to hide your pain For me to hide from you We've fought a million wars thus far We're owed a moment's peace, we are So come in from the storm, old friend Hold me again. CHORUS Take your dog-tired hands And gently trace my scars As we brace ourselves for debris and falling stars Whisper into my ear Show me yours, I'll show you mine Then we'll laugh our way through the fire Drinking whiskey and wine Bridge/Instrumental (back to Chorus)
The twilight of the dove; city streets begin to sigh. And streaming from above, the faintest light. Returning to a place we have never been before. I see an old man gaze upon the shore. CHORUS Walking with you, Rosewood in bloom, We wend our way. The sky turns to blue We hold onto Our love and seize the day. BRIDGE Tears drop from the trees There's just you and me Barefoot on the stone This place feels like home La hora del albor, Caminamos rumbo al mar Las calles sin rumor - ¡a despertar! Junto a ti, Quiero vivir Y florecer Y siempre reír, Nunca dormir Hasta el amanecer.
La pequeña Amália está soñando con su libertad. Vueltas y piruetas da, bailando su felicidad. Amanece en un jardín tapizado de musgo y verdín. Gotas de rocío/ en las plantas y las flores, y se bañan las aves de mil colores al rayar primera luz. Canta y tararea, de puntillas se deja llevar por el dulce viento y el murmullo del arroyo, un incandescente asombro en cada pasito... Amáliaaaa. Destacar en su andar / la inocencia pura, ternura y candor. Exaltar el altar de la naturaleza, nobleza y verdor. Sueño infantil, paraíso fértil / promesa'hecha a los niños que hay que cumplir. La pequeña Amália está soñando con su libertad. Vueltas y piruetas da bailando su felicidad.
