I´ve hidden wishes for so long,
buried deep inside,
keeping them secret from a world
That´ll never realize
The way I dream.

Puedo ver esos ríos de luz
escapar de mi piel, hacia la fantasía.

Out in the real world
You are waiting to take my hand,
I´ll be looking for answer
That leads me back.

I lack the will to face my fears
I´m running from it all.
And all the painful memories,
They haunt me once again
I´m giving up...

Puedo ver esos ríos de luz
escapar de mi piel, hacia la fantasía

Out in the real world
you are waiting to hear my call;
through a river of illusions
you saw me fall
Out in the real world
you are waiting to take my hand,
I´ll be looking for answer
That leads me back

Outside
Back in your arms

No matter how hard it may seem
We should never hide
The little things that make us real
Show them who we truly are,
We will in time

Out in the real world
you are waiting to hear my call;
through a river of illusions
you saw me fall
Out in the real world
you are waiting to take my hand,
I´ll be looking for answer
That leads me back

Puedo ver esos ríos de luz
escapar de mi piel, hacia la fantasía.
Hay en mí tanto temor,
tanto mal que ocultar.

    General CommentUm wrong-ish lyrics (sorry) here are the right ones:

    (Out in the real world, you are waiting to take my hand,
    I'll be looking for an answer that leads me back)

    I've hidden wishes for so long, buried deep inside
    Keeping them secret from a world that'll never realize the way I dream

    Puedo ver esos ríos de luz
    escapar de mi piel, hacia la fantasía

    Out in the real world, you are waiting to take my hand,
    I'll be looking for an answer that leads me back

    I lack the will to face my fears, I'm running from it all
    And all the painful memories, they haunt me once again
    I'm giving up

    Puedo ver esos ríos de luz
    escapar de mi piel, hacia la fantasía

    Out in the real world, you are waiting to hear my call;
    Through a river of illusions you saw me fall
    Out in the real world, you are waiting to take my hand
    I'll be looking for an answer that leads me back

    outside,
    back in your arms

    No matter how hard it may seem
    We should never hide
    The little things that make us real
    Show them who we truly are,
    We will in time

    Out in the real world, you are waiting to hear my call;
    (Puedo ver esos ríos de luz)
    Through a river of illusions you saw me fall
    (escapar de mi piel, hacia la fantasía)
    Out in the real world, you are waiting to take my hand
    (Hay en mí tanto temor)
    I'll be looking for an answer that leads me back
    (Tanto mal que ocultar)

    General CommentThis song really is gorgeous.
    I think that it's about coming out of your shell with the help of someone who gives you courage.
    The fact that one of the lines is "Back in your arms" implies that the person faced something horrible which made them hide within themselves before coming out again with the help of that special someone.

    General CommentFor me this song is about a person who is gay, has strong feelings for someone and cannot find the strength to come out and be with them. I probably see it this way because I am, but it does make quite a lot of sense if you read through the lyrics carefully, especially the three verses, e.g.

    "I've hidden wishes for so long,
    buried deep inside,
    keeping them secret from a world
    That'll never realize
    The way I dream."
