The white dove (La Paloma)


La Paloma

Una canción me recuerda aquel ayer
Cuando se marchó en silencio un atardecer.
Se fue con su canto triste a otro lugar
Dejó como compañera mi soledad
Una paloma blanca me canta al alba
Viejas melancolías, cosas del alma
Llegan con el silencio de la mañana
Y cuando salgo a verla, vuela a su casa
¿Donde va que mi voz
Ya no quiere escuchar?
¿Donde va que mi vida se apaga
Si junto a mi no está?
Si quisiera volver
Yo la iría a esperar
Cada día hasta la madrugada
Para quererla más

The white dove

Versions: #1#2
A song reminds me of
That yesterday
When she left in silence
One sunset
She went away with her sad song
To another place
She left as a companion
My loneliness.
A white dove sings to me
At dawn
Old melancholies, things
Of the soul
Arrive with the silence of
The morning.
And when I go out to see her, she flies
To her house
Where she goes that she
Now doesn't want to listen to my voice
Where she goes that my life
Fades away
If she is not next to me
If she wanted to return
I would go to wait for her
Every day, every dawn
To love her more.
