Entre a mi pago sin golpear (English translation)

English translationEnglish
A A

I entered my home without knocking

My suffering was great when I was far from home
So much running never to arrive anywhere
Because what I was looking for out there was where I was born.
 
Friendship that is neither bought nor sold is gold
It's only there when it's felt in the chest
It's not something to use only when it serves you right.
 
That's how my fellow countrymen are in friendship
Their hands are a piece of bread and prepared mate tea.
And the flower of humility usually perfumes their farm
I borrowed life from them and I have to return it.
I'll wait till the creator calls me to deliver me
May my bones, skin and salt fertilize my homeland.
 
The moon is a lump that illuminates with borrowed light
Only when she sings coplas of the soul
The sun explodes in her heart and climbs up on her voice
 
Singer, what do you sing for if your verses don't say anything?
Oh, why would you silence the silence?
If silence is a song full of spirits in the voice
 
My people are a singer that sings a chacarera
They shouldn't sing what they don't feel deep inside
If you want to listen
Enter my home without knocking
 
I borrowed life from them and I have to return it.
I'll wait till the creator calls me to deliver me
May my bones, skin and salt fertilize my homeland.
 
Thanks!
