Speak

Spanish

Habla

Habla, tú puedes hacerlo,
Dime habla.
Cuéntame una historia inventada,
Me gusta escucharte cuando me hablas.
Parece tan sencillo empezar.

Sabes, no tienes razones para hacerlo,
Pero es la única forma de entendernos.
Puedes convencerme si me hablas.
¿No quieres ganar mi confianza?

Por todos los que tienen que callar,
Que nadie te quite la voz.
Por todos los que nunca ganan.
Por todos los que faltan,
Dime habla.

Habla, suéltate un poquito de palabra
Tu lengua se ha quedado enjaulada
Dime, el aire se desliza en tu garganta
Y no encuentra la forma de salir
No encuentra tu boca.

Por todos los que tienen que callar,
Que nadie te quite la voz.
Por todos los que nunca ganan.
Por todos los que faltan,
Dime habla.

Speak

Speak, you can do it,
Tell me, speak.
Tell me a made-up story.
I like to hear you talking to me
Starting seems so simple.

You know, you don't have any reason to do it,
But its the only way we can communicate.
You can convince me if you talk to me.
Don't you want to earn my trust?

For all of those who have to remain silent,
Let nobody take your voice away.
For all of those who never win.
For all those missing,
Tell me, speak.

Speak, let out a few words
Your tongue has been trapped
Tell me, the air flows through your throat
But it can’t find a way out
It can’t find your mouth.

For all of those who have to remain silent,
Let nobody take your voice away.
For all of those who never win.
For all those missing,
Tell me, speak.

Author's comments:

For some reason, I'm not quite satisfied with "tell me, speak" for "dime habla". "Dime" strikes me as something more frequently said in Spanish than "tell me" is in English. Also "tell me, speak" doesn't make much sense, whereas I feel like "dime habla" does.
