Ignacio Copani - Las cosas y la gente (English translation)

English translation

The things and the people

Don't expect the metal to twist like rubber
don't expect the crystal to emit some smell.
Don't expect mercy, the wolf to not eat you,
don't expect truth if I'm kidding.
 
The things and the people have shape
don't expect they dye with the color you like the most,
to spin in your ring.
 
Don't expect a gale if four drops fall,
don't expect the salt to sweeten the defeat.
Don't expect the sign of the broken stars,
don't expect a loyal step if the foot wears a boot.
 
The things and the people have shape,
don't expect to turn them into your people and your things,
to spin in your ring.
 
Take me
the way they made me,
with crooked mouth when I laugh,
Take me
when I tangle
among what I want to say,
Take me
as a low average in the grade book,
take me with the face, the nape and the profile
from the top to the bottom.
 
Take me
the way they made me,
not like the good guy of the film,
Take me
when I remember
the sane myself I never was,
Take me
not as a joke, be more gentle
take me with the face, the nape and the profile
the way I take you.
