lyrics

en mi caminar busco una salida
un color que pinta y brilla mi verdad

con mis pies en el cemento
siento el ligero peso de mi cuerpo
y las piedras de mi cuello se van

vientos lejanos
caminos cercanos
ríos que me alejan de tí
devuélveme el cielo
regrésame al suelo
llévame a la tierra donde nací
llévame a la tierra donde te conocí

en la soledad veo vestiditos
a los cuerpos
infinito caminar

con los brazos en el cielo alcanzo
el reloj que está a lo lejos falto
de que yo lo entienda y vea su faz, su paz

vientos lejanos...

cuando llegue a tu lado
y veas que el tiempo ha pasado sobre mí
quiero estar junto a ti
quiero quedarme aquí
quiero tenerte cerca de mí

espera a que el viento sople en otra dirección
espera a que las hojas caigan solas, solitas
la cara se te pinte bonita

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

translation:

on my path i look for a way out
a color that paints and brightens my truth

with my feet on the cement
i feel my body’s light weight
and the stones on my neck fall off

distant winds
near paths
rivers that keep me away from you
give me back the sky
bring me back to the ground
take me to the land were i was born
take me back to the land where i met you

in solitude i see the bodies
dressed up
an infinite walk

with my arms in the sky i reach the distant clock
that lacks understanding and someone
to see his face, his peace

distant winds...

i’ll come to you
and you see, time has passed through me
i want to stay near you
i want to stay here
i want to have you near me

wait until the wind blows in a different direction
wait until the leaves fall off, by themselves
your face will paint itself, beautifully

about

Diana Gameros San Francisco, California

"Her steady fingerpicking and elegantly simple melody create a calm within the storm, a safe place for big questions and long-ailing wounds that transcend any news cycle. Her voice has a remarkable expressive range. She's at once strong and breathy — in an instant, wounded and boldly searching." Benjamin Naddaff-Hafrey, NPR's All songs Considered ... more
