Te he venido suponiendo
en todos los días que me faltan
tal cual si, pudiera verlos
como son.

Sólo quiero resumirte
que al principio te pensaba
y que hoy contemplo en ti
la costa a donde voy.

Si te cuento que esta unión
de dulce y sal me sujetó
y otras cosas parecidas
que me envuelven y me dan
de imaginar.

Es que me deleito tanto
escuchándome inventarte
en mi prisión
es mi sueño preferido y
no quisiera un día notar
que este encuentro
no me sucedió jamás

A mi que vuelvo a amanecer
para tu aliento, muchas más veces
de las que hubiera confesado ayer.
Que despido al sol poniente
cuando he contemplado el siempre
de tus ojos y por fin comienzo a ver.

Que estoy dejando de callar que te amo
que me detienes la respiración
que atraen mi vida tus puertos tiranos
a donde siempre apuntó mi amante embarcación.

Mi existencia el pescador
que a diario le tendió a la vida
sus resplandecientes redes de ultramar
donde arde el astro poeta
que se ilumina a si mismo
y viaja y sueña en su eterna senda solar
lugar de brisa, oleaje y días añiles
que siempre estaban conduciendo a ti.
Que siempre fueron signos invisibles
cursos intrazables a través de mi.

Toma el timón de mi barca
y el oriente de mis velas.
en tu tierra firme dame una señal
se mi faro por las noches
déjame arar con mi quilla en tus arenas
remontar tu manantial.

Si aguas adentro en tus labios me pierdo y
no me es posible llegar a volver.
Me internaré en tus senderos secretos
a explorar tus fuentes, tus selvas tu sed.

Entre Pairos y derivas
por los mares de mi vida
hoy me veo siempre bogando a ti.

    This song talks about confesing your love to someone you have loved in secret from a long time. This song narrates the feelings you have when you finally confess your love by making an analogy of a sailor in a sea.

    I love this song, but due to the poetry it has it's hard to translate it...

    *The word "pairo" doesn't exists in the english language, but it means leaving a boat with the sails free so the wind will move them, but won't move the boat.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Ed Sheeran
“Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms. “Well, good morning there / What a way to start the day / With everything laid bare,” Ed Sheeran sings in the first verse, enthusiastic to be waking up beside his woman. He apologizes for missing her calls in the second verse and promises to return them because for him, speaking to her is the most important thing. “Well, I get lost inside my head / In this chaos, you’re my calm / And I will find my feet again / ‘Cause еven the worst days of my life will always еnd / At midnight in your arms,” sings Ed Sheeran in the chorus, revelling in his good luck.
