I need to learn Spanish. But in the meantime, I have gotten so much from translations of the poetry and lyrics of Pablo Neruda and Silvio Rodriguez. This song is about a revolutionary Latina sparrow.

Story behind the song
I need to learn Spanish. But in the meantime, I have gotten so much from translations of the poetry and lyrics of Pablo Neruda and Silvio Rodriguez. This song is about a revolutionary Latina sparrow.
Lyrics
Mi amor, as you pause beside the lilacs I watch you take them in You start the morning like a prayer That´s the way your days begin And if I could be a petal Which you touch before you go Then with this branch I´ll scratch the dirt And that´s the seed I´ll sow Mi amor, as you dive beneath the water I watch it cascade down your chest You rise upon the wave As if it´s molded to your breast If I could be a stream that feeds this lake Which might rise to kiss your face Then I will wind my way between these rocks So I might settle in this place Mi amor, as you glide beside the clouds I feel the wind beneath your wings With such ease you take this gift That your friend, la luna brings And I hope that in my lungs There might be the strength one day That you might gather other sparrows And chase the crows away Mi amor, the sound that rises from your belly Is one I´ve heard before It reaches deep behind these walls And I want to live some more And if I might write a verse That you choose to sing one afternoon Then I´ll gladly wile away the hours Searching for the tune ---- Created September, 2002 Copyright David Rovics 2002, all rights reserved
