Ruben Blades - Buscando América (English translation)

English translation

Searching for America

I’m searching for you, America
and fear that I won’t find you
your footprint has been lost in the dark
I’m calling for you America
but you are not answering me
you have been made to vanish by those who deny truth
 
Surrounded by shadows
we deny all that’s true
until there is justice
we will never have peace.
Living under dictatorships
I search for you and I can’t find you,
your tortured body
is nowhere to be found.
 
If one’s dream
is everybody’s dream
to break the chains
and begin our journey
Let’s be confident
let’s go ahead, my race,
 
You’ve been abducted, America
your mouth has been gagged
and today it’s our turn
to bring you freedom.
I’m calling you America
our future awaits us
and before it dies on us
we will find you.
 
Chorus:
I’m searching for you America
I’m calling you America
Oh, Oh
 
Fighting for our race and our freedom
 
Chorus:
I’m searching for you America
(this is my home)
I’m calling you America
Oh, Oh
 
And we will find you among the darkness,
 
Chorus:
I’m searching for you America
I’m calling you America
Oh, Oh
 
You’ve been vanished by those who deny the truth.
 
Chorus:
I’m searching for you America
I’m calling you America
Oh, Oh
 
And it’s our turn today to set you free.
