lyrics

el aire tiene olor
a que alguien murió

prende la vela hijita
no llegues tarde estelita
que la noche te alcanza
y no te vuelvo a ver

van ya más de veinte veces
que el ave se espanta
el alma no aguanta
de ver pasar los rostros sin vida
no mires mi niña
es por tu bien
mira que es por tu bien!

deja mejor que te cuente
del día en que era todo verde
corrías y no, no buscaba
no hacía falta saber donde estabas

deja mejor te cuento de los sueños eternos
del aire que cruza los cercos
de éste amor que ahora te ofrezco
mi niña, verás que la vida va bien

el aire tiene olor a que alguien murió
cierra la puerta hijito
no quiero escuchar el rito
de los tiros que danzan
y te hacen caer
ay! que te hacen caer

deja mejor que te cuente...

mis niños, verán que la vida va bien

-------------------

translation:

the air smells
like someone died

light up the candle my child
don’t be late estelita
the night will reach you
and i won’t see you again

more than twenty times
the bird has been frightened
the soul can’t bear
the passage of the lifeless
faces
don’t look my child,
for your own good

let me tell you instead
about the day when everything
was green
you ran and i didn’t seek
i didn’t need to know where you were

let me tell you a story
of eternal dreams,
of air that crosses over the fences,
of this love that i offer
my child, life will go well, you’ll see

the air smells
like someone died
close the door my child
i don’t want to hear the rite
of the shotguns that dance
and make you fall

let me tell you instead...

my children, life will go well, life will go well
