Despierta, despierta,
No hay mas tiempo.
Hay nada mas importante que sus sueños
El mar la pregunta
tierra repuesta
El futuro es tuyo,
sin que lo quiera
Running in water
crawling through consciousness

Lashes dance on sleeping eyes
Pretty dreams in pretty mind (I know)
Like dandelions and weightlessness,
Kisses soft and sweet upon the neck
Comet dancing purple sky
wandering through my lazy eyes (I know)
Capricorn and baby's breath
Window in the soul, oblivion

La lluvia bailando
Feliz con viento
La playa besando el mar tranquilo
No hay absolucion
Solo su deseo.
Realidad subjetiva
Es solo en que piensas
Drowning in fire
Climbing through consciousness

Rhythm slows beneath her breasts
Pretty dreams in her pretty head (I know)
Lavender and orchid leaves
Kisses soft and sweet on her belly
Laughter echoes dragonfly
Towers spiral through the sky (I know)
Creatures in the candlelight
Window in the heart, a kiss goodnight

    General CommentI speak both English and Spanish, so here is a legitimate translation of the spanish parts of the song, since the previous poster just typed it into a translator, which gets horrible results.

    Wake up, wake up! We are out of time.
    There is nothing more important than your dreams.
    The sea asks, The earth responds.
    The future is yours if you want it.

    The rain dancing happily with wind
    The beach kissing the calm sea
    There is no absolution, only his desire.
    Subjective reality is only what you think it is.

    General CommentShe wakes, She wakes,
    There is but no time.
    Any more has important that its dreams,
    the sea, the question,
    replaced earth,
    The future he is yours,
    it wants without it,
    Running in water
    crawling through consciousness

    Rain dancing,
    Happy with wind,
    The beach kissing the calm sea,
    is no acquittal,
    Only its desire.
    Subjective reality,
    He is only in which you think,
    Drowning in fire
    Climbing through consciousness

    General CommentThis song defined my summer audibly. I heard it live in San Diego mid july, and it's by far my favorite on the new album. Stunning.

    My InterpretationTo me, this song is about laying down with the girl you love for a sensual, dreamy night.

    The imagery is beautiful, and seems to detail the hazy conscious/unconscious visions that two lovers are having.

    I think it could also be only a woman sleeping, dreaming about the man she desires. Maybe he's watching over her as she sleeps.

    Also,
    "running in water"
    "drowning in fire"

    cool verb switch.

    General CommentThanks for the accurate translation, WakingTheFallen, I've been wondering about the lyrics for a while. I took 4 years of Spanish, but I'm still not fluent enough to properly translate. What's the title? I keep wanting to say it's something like "While I See Her Dream." The lyrics would definitely fit it.

    General CommentMy family is Cuban, so I speak English & Spanish fluently. :)

    Mientras la veo soñar = While I see her dream

    Wake up, wake up,
    There is no more time.
    There's nothing more important than your dreams.
    The sea asks,
    The earth responds:
    The future is yours,
    Even if you don't want it.

    The rain dancing happily with the wind
    The beach kissing the calm sea

    There's no absolution,
    Only your desire.
    Subjective reality
    is only what you think.


    Hope this helps :)

    General CommentHe is saying that each of us create our own realities. The future is yours if you want it, it's time to wake up and realize that reality is subject, and it's only what you think it is.
