You are...

Versions: #1#2#3

Like a promise, you are, you are [to me]
Like a summer morning.
Like a smile, you are, you are [to me]
That's how, that's how, you are [that's how I perceive you]

You are like my hope, you are, you are [to me]
Like a fresh rain in my hands
Like a strong breeze, you are, you are [to me]
That's how, that's how, you are [that's how I perceive you]

You are the source of my water
You are the warmth in my home
You are (You are something like, ohhhh)
Like the fire in my fireplace (something like the fire from my fireplace)
You are (You are something like, ohhhh)
The wheat of my bread (my love, you are something like that ).

Like my poem, you are, you are [to me]
Like a guitar in the night,
you are all my horizon, you are [to me]
That's how, that's how, you are [that's how I perceive you]

You are the source of my water
You are the warmth in my home
You are (You are something like, ohhhh)
Like the fire in my fireplace (something like the fire from my fireplace)
You are (You are something like, ohhhh)
The wheat of my bread (my love, you are something like that ).

You are...

A beautiful song, one of the best love songs from the 70's, but difficult to translate.
* Brackets are my additions [ ] to complete the sentences.
* The typical way to say something is " tú eres como una promesa", "you are like a promise" but the artist uses passive sentences.
* The exact translation would be: "You are, you are, like a Promise [to me]".
* another translation of "eres tu" could be "it's you".

Thank you for the beautiful translation. Such smoother flow to write: "You are the source of my water" and "you are the warmth in my home" instead of just the straight translations.

My vote didn't seem to save...
Once again, thank you for the great work.
