Damià Olivella - Avui (English translation)

Catalan

Avui

Ja no cerco les estrelles
més enllà de tu i de mi.
Ja no espero les respostes
que no ténen cap sentit.
Avui, camino sense pressa,
potser avui hi arrivaré...
 
Ja no vull seguir esperant,
que la vida ja és aquí.
No et demano que em responguis,
però que tot es pugui dir.
Avui, sento que la vida
és un gran regal per mi...
 
Ja no puc entendre els somnis,
ja no puc entendre el món;
però deixa'm abraçar la vida,
que avui sento que ho tinc tot!
Avui sento que sóc lliure,
que no hi ha res decidit...
 
No m'importa allò què diguin;
el que pensin se me'n fot.
El que vull és que somriguis,
que avui t'ho mereixes tot.
Que cada moment guarda un present,
potser avui et trobaré...
Avui tot serà més fàcil;
avui sento que ets amb mi...
 
[Instrumental]
 
Ja no em burxo les ferides,
sé que tot vol el seu temps.
Deixaré que el temps i els dies
siguin el més gran present.
 
Avui lliuraré les penes
que m'han fet creixer per dins;
agraïr-te el que m'ensenyes,
el més important per mi
Avui camino sense pressa,
potser avui hi arrivaré...
 
Avui tot serà més fàcil,
perquè sento que ets amb mi...
 
Avui sento que la vida
és un gran regal per mi...
 
Avui sento que sóc lliure,
i no hi hà res decidit...
 
Decidit...

Today

I don't search for the stars anymore
Beyond you and me.
I don't expect to hear answers, anymore
That don't make any sense.
Today, I walk without hurrying,
Maybe today I'll get there...
 
I don't want to keep waiting anymore,
For life is already here.
I'm not asking you to answer me,
But I demand that we can say anything.
Today, I feel that life
Is a great gift given to me...
 
I cannot understand dreams anymore,
I cannot understand the world anymore;
But let me embrace life
For, today, I feel that I have everything!
Today, I feel that I'm free,
That nothing is set in stone...
 
I don't care about what they say;
I don't give a damn about what they think.
What I want is for you to smile,
'Cause today you deserve everything.
For every moment brings a present,
And maybe today I'll find you...
Today everything will be easier;
Today I feel you here with me...
 
[Instrumental]
 
I don't pick at my wounds anymore,
I know that everything takes its time.
I will let time and the passing days
Become my greatest gift.
 
Today, I will release those sorrows
That have made me grow inside;
i want to thank you for what you're teaching me,
The most important thing to me.
Today, I walk without hurrying,
Maybe today I'll get there...
 
Today everything will be easier;
Today I feel you here with me...
 
Today, I feel that life
If a great gift given to me...
 
Today, I feel that I'm free,
That nothing is set in stone...
 
Decided...

Proofreading : 1:4 typo - don't, 2:4 "anything" sounds more natural than "everything" in this context, 2:6 typo - Is
