  • This 'goodbye' doesn’t mask a 'see you later'
    This 'never' doesn’t hide a 'maybe'

    These ashes won’t play with fire
    This blind man doesn’t look back

    This notary certifies what I write
    This letter I won’t renounce
    Keep the acknowledgement of receipt
    This eve is what happens later

    To this orphan noise
    I won’t allow to drill
    a heart that is sick of beating

    This fish doesn’t die by your mouth anymore
    These eyes don’t cry for you any longer

    And so the song starts...

    (Loosely translated from "Nos sobran los motivos" by Joaquin Sabina)
