“They were right, those who said love is not enough to overcome the problems and the phases, partner”
Relationships are always tricky. Especially long ones go through phases and challenges with time. Why argue or be angry, it’s such short life after all!
If you can choose to be with someone: make it work, it’ll be worthy.






Quiero dedicarte niña una canción

Por todos estos años juntos, por todo lo que trajo el amor

Nos conocimos en un concierto
Llevabas en el cuello un triskel, como yo

Hay días que tu quieres salir cuando yo me quiero quedar

Hay cosas que nos hacen reír y otras que nos hacen llorar

Pero han pasado quince primaveras

y sigo amarrado en la playa de tu piel


Tenían razón los que dicen que no basta el amor

para poder salvar los problemas y las fases, compañera

Me miro en el espejo y veo tu reflejo sin querer saber

que ayer faltaba de tu cama otra vez

Pero al amanecer me acuesto lentamente junto a ti


Tenían razón los que dicen que no basta el amor

para poder salvar los problemas y las fases, compañera

Tantas cosas que aguantarse pero no vale la pena discutir, gritar,

esta vida es tan corta…

Si me dan a elegir yo quisiera disfrutarla junto a ti, compañera

Todo aquello que nos queda por vivir, compañera, compañera



GIRL I WANT TO DEDICATE A SONG TO YOU

FOR ALL THIS YEARS TOGETHER

POR WHAT LOVE BROUGHT US

WE MET AT A GIG

YOU HAD A TRISKEL AROUND YOUR NECK

LIKE ME


SOMEDAYS YOU WANT TO GO OUT

WHEN I FELL LIKE TO STAY IN

SOMETHINGS MAKES US SMILE

AND OTHERS MAKES US CRY


BUT FIVETEEN SPRINGS HAD PASSED

AND I’M STILL MOORED IN THE BEACH

OF YOUR SKIN


THEY WERE RIGHT

THOSE WHO SAY LOVE IS NOT ENOUGH

TO OVERCOME THE PROBLEMS AND THE PHASES

COMPANION


I LOOK MYSELF IN THE MIRROR

AND SEE YOUR REFLECTION WITHOUT WANTING TO KNOW

THAT LAST NIGHT  I WAS ABSENT FROM YOUR BED

AGAIN

BUT AT DAWN (SUNRISE)

I SNEAK TENDERLY IN BED NEXT TO YOU


THEY WERE RIGHT

THOSE WHO SAY LOVE IS NOT ENOUGH

TO OVERCOME THE PROBLEMS AND THE PHASES

COMPANION


SO MANY THINGS TO PUT UP WITH

IT’S NORTH TO ARGUE ABOUT, TO SHOUT ABOUT

LIFE IS TOO SHORT

IF I COULD CHOOSE

I’D LIKE TO ENJOY IT NEXT TO YOU


COMPANION

ALL THAT IS STILL AHEAD OF US

COMPANION
