Gaby Moreno - Valle de Magnolias (English translation)

English translation

Valley of Magnolias

Look at them play on the grass without minding
anyone who looks at them.
All they want, all they ask for
is freedom.
 
Like children out of school and without homework
they keep jumping; they get there one by one,
with their balloons, towards the world,
who unites them?
In the Valley of Magnolias
underneath the sun
I'm so lonely
 
Four-hundred elephants* on parade wearing their diamond garments
Their kaleidoscope of figures and colors
Inviting me, urging me to celebrate
Under never-ending confetti
 
In the Valley of Magnolias
underneath the sky I am so lonely.
On the street there are butterflies;
fear doesn't exist.
 
In the Valley of Magnolias

I started to translate here to help other people understand songs that
they could not understand themselves. The languages I speak are
very common, and therefore I do not have anything else to contribute
to this website. As far as I am concerned,
use whatever I have published in any way you want. That was never
a problem with me .
Except for the Basque (Modern Batua) songs that are properly cited, all was
done by me.
I do not care if you use it or pass it off as yours. I could not care less.
You are more than welcome to do whatever you want with anything I did here.
2017.
