Countryside Party

Like sparks
Or the thin points of needles
The stars shine
On Saint John's day...
 
The frills1,
Xotes2 and xaxados3
Hold the tips
Of my heart...
 
Bombs in the magic-war
There was no one killing
There was no one dying...
 
In the trenches
Of joy
What exploded
Was love...(2x)
 
Like sparks
Or thin points of needles
The stars shine
On Saint John's day...
 
The frills,
Xotes and xaxados
Hold the tips
Of my heart...
 
Bombs in the magic-war
There was no one killing
There was no one dying...
 
In the trenches
Of joy
What exploded
Was love...(2x)
 
The burning bonfire
Warmed me
Throughout my life
It was an eternal night
Always as if it's the first
Countryside party4...(2x)
 
Like sparks
Or thin points of needles
The stars shine
On Saint John's day...
 
The frills,
Xotes and xaxados
Hold the tips
Of my heart...
 
Bombs in the magic-war
There was no one killing
There was no one dying...
 
In the trenches
Of joy
What exploded
Was love...(2x)
 
The burning bonfire
Warmed me
Throughout my life
It was an eternal night
As if it's always the first
Countryside party...(2x)
