Jorge Vercillo - Himalaia (English translation)

English translation

Himalaya

The whole world is kept inside me
From Sarajevo1 to the Pekingese temples
'Don't be afraid of loving and being happy'
That's the holy secret of the apprentice
 
I want to walk on the streets inside me
And know the corners of the heart
Fall down in the bars
Where light doesn't reach
 
The whole world has changed within me
From Soweto2 to the Berlin walls
'Don't be afraid, if you change it's because you're happy'
If you change it's because you're happy
That's the third vision of an apprentice
 
I'm a river of the griefs inside me
A waterfall that ends up in the sea
An ocean of the lives I lived
And some others on which I'll sail
 
In the lightness of being, beauty is in flying
Over the Himalaya, over the Himalaya, over the Himalaya, over the Himalaya
Over the whole Himalaya
Alchemy is keeping the mountains in your eyes
The Himalaya, the Himalaya, the Himalaya, the Himalaya
The whole Himalaya
 
In the lightness of being, beauty is in flying
Over the Himalaya, over the Himalaya, over the Himalaya, over the Himalaya
Over the whole Himalaya
Alchemy is keeping the mountains in your eyes
The Himalaya, the Himalaya, the Himalaya, the Himalaya
The whole Himalaya
The whole Himalaya...
 
In the lightness of being, beauty is in flying
Over the Himalaya, over the Himalaya, over the Himalaya, over the Himalaya
Over the whole Himalaya
Alchemy is keeping the mountains in your eyes
The Himalaya, the Himalaya, the Himalaya, the Himalaya
The whole Himalaya...
