Life Carnival


Roll up for the biggest carnival!
Join the million people already there
The masquerade is compulsory
A ride in the rollercoaster a duty.

Start with the room of mirrors
See yourself transforming to the core
Unrecognizable you'll be for everybody
Everybody even your own.

Line up to ride the rollercoaster
The highest peak and the deepest hell
Stand up behind a thousand people
You'll feel as if the wait never ends.

A hard ride to the top and you'll feel in the sky
But nothing as hard as going down to the dephts
You'll think the wait wasn't worth it
and yet you'll do it all over again.

On the hundredth ride there's a spark of hope
Terrified, you'll throw away the mask,
Thinking the sky'll be better with an open heart
And though even worst will be the fall.

A never ending cycle just like your infinite hope
Monsters from the carnival on the rollercoaster will crawl
And still blindly and headstrong you'll want to go on,

On every ride you'll hope, every minute, every day
You'll force yourself not to do it and yet you'll wait
The longer it takes the more it'll hurt
But no matter what you'll still hope.
Burn


You hurt so much I wish I could rip off my heart with every feeling in it,
And though, I know that then, there would be no more love, and no more life.

You hurt so much that every tear starts to taste like blood
And blood starts to feel like ice burning in my veins.

It would seem that my stomach has turned into a rock
And my heart has become nothing but a wad of paper.

You hurt so much but I won't give up
As long as the wad of paper beats, I'll stay
Because after walking such a winding road, I've learnt to fight
Because I'm not a quitter
Because I still believe
Because it's you

Silencio

En silencio grito
En silencio lloro
En silencio me pierdo
En un profundo silencio me ahogo.

De todo lo que el viento me arrebata
esto hubiera dado mi vida por no soltarlo.
Contra todo aquello a lo que la consciencia me obliga,
y contra toda maldita lógica
yo me hubiera rebelado.

Un clamor de auxilio y socorro en el silencio
Una infinita batalla entre mente y sentimiento aqui adentro.
Con garras y furia me aferro fuerte a los restos que de esta historia quedaron.
Manchas, cenizas, ruinas, retazos, letras y colores de un último encuentro.

Yo tan solo espero, por siempre espero
aunque no lo sepas, ni lo veas, espero.
Cada sonido, cada movimiento, cada gota, palabra, paso, latido,
un susurro de todo lo que queda,
lo que tenemos y lo que no,
esperanzas quedan y van
pero tú, tú siempre estás.

Pero mientras te armas y te desarmas yo pienso en ti,
juego con mi corazón en vez de con el tuyo
y me despido de mi mientras me despido de ti
y me pierdo mientras te pierdo a ti.

Este no es mio, pero es tuyo.

Te digo adiós, y acaso te quiero todavía
Quizá no he de olvidarte, pero te digo adiós.
No sé si me quisiste... no sé si te quería...
O tal vez nos quisimos demasiado los dos.

Este cariño triste, apasionado y loco 
me lo sembré en el alma para quererte a ti.
No sé si te amé mucho... no sé si te amé poco;
pero sí sé que nunca volveré a amar así.

Me queda tu sonrisa dormida en mi recuerdo,
y el corazón me dice que no te olvidaré;
pero al quedarme solo, sabiendo que te pierdo
tal vez empiezo a amarte como jamás te amé.

Te digo adiós y acaso con esta despedida,
mi más hermoso sueño muere dentro de mi...
Pero te digo adiós, para toda la vida,
aunque toda la vida siga pensando en ti.

José Angel Buesa

Known

It’s like touching the sky with the tips of your fingers
It’s like grabbing a piece of cloud just to let it go
It’s like the sweetest star powder flying away from your hand.
It’s like the very end of the very beginning of a story already known.

Couldn’t cross the hawthorn that guarded my price
And so the departure I must sit down to see
Away from the castle I once though I had
Away from any treasure I could have dreamt with

For this castle the founds I never Knew
Although the ceiling was clear as sun
Walls were made of the softest cotton
But it would look like the hardest rock.

Ethereal substances are not supposed to be grabbed
Of freedom I could never keep a hold
As Clouds are meant to float in the blue
Endings are meant to cover my grey sky.

Today I know from this path there’s no turning back
Today I’m just letting go every hope and every joy
I’m closing my eyes to feel a dew I already know
And since this trip has started I know I cannot return.
