Jorge Vercillo - Leve (English translation)

English translation

Light

The hummingbirds levitate
So graciously sudden
How can they be so happy?
Nobody dares to reprimand
 
It's needless to invent
Anything that raises me up
I only need your smile to dismiss
This hang-glider1
 
If you need a definition: I feel light
That the wind takes this blue sky caught in a soap bubble
To the heart, as a leave
When reflecting yourself, a mirror
Turns into a painting, turns into art
Salvador Dalí didn't dare imagine you
 
And I feel myself floating
A wonder that chooses me
Like a kite in the air
A blue sea on this beige sand
 
Kissing me like a breeze
Your affection protects me
You hug me and make me melt when playing
Like the sea does to an iceberg
 
With you there's no explanation, I feel light
That the wind takes this blue sky caught in a soap bubble
To the heart, as a leave
When reflecting yourself, a mirror
Turns into a painting, turns into art
Salvador Dalí didn't dare imagine you
 
If you need a definition: I feel light
That the wind takes this blue sky caught in a soap bubble
To the heart, as a leave
When reflecting yourself, a mirror
Turns into a painting, turns into art
Salvador Dalí didn't dare imagine you

Author's comments:

The original lyrics are very confusing, as sentences seem to have been put out of place. I tried to convey the original sense of the song in this translation, but I'm not 100% sure it's accurate or not.
