Ignacio Copani - María Eva (English translation)

English translation

María Eva

María Eva was born in Los Toldos,
not in a movie set,
she knew to drink of everyone's pain
not only when the curtains went up.
 
Eva is not a story, it doesn't follow a script...
María Eva was born in Los Toldos,
Evita in our heart.
 
María Eva was gone in a winter...
July of a black fifty two
The eyes of the goodest burn,
and cry for Eva, they refuse her farewell.
 
A people doesn't give... so much devotion.
María Eva was gone in a winter...Evita not.
 
What knows a choreographer in London about this story...
What does he knows about the kiss that our memory hides...
About the shirtless hugs,
about a country sown with dignity...
Seed of Evita that one day will bloom.
 
María Eva was born in Los Toldos,
not in a fiction Opera,
later Evita on the broken neighbourhoods,
was reborn on every factory.
 
Eva is not a tell... Is revolution
María Eva was born in Los Toldos... Evita in you.
 
What knows a choreographer in London about this story...
What does he knows about the kiss that our memory hides...
About the exiles, the affronts,
about the brothers that are no longer here,
for going behind her footprint and her steps of freedom.
 
Give me the sun of your tenderness... teach me to not slack...
I'm one among millions, in which Eva and her reasons
return one more time.
 
I was your privileged...You gave me a happy time
and laws to follow...
I...after the year two thusand, though I didn't meet you,
I love you since I was born.
 
What knows the Broadway critics about this story...
About the verse and the music that honor our memory...
The marquees and the windows, one day shine, the other are gone...
In my country the Eva's flag is immortal.
