I am Spaniard

Versions: #1#2
I let out a cry of emotion
Within my heart
I am love, I am heat, I am fire
I am the path made for walking
I am a sigh, I am singing
I am a song, I am passion, I am longing
 
I am the night, I am the light
I am the North, I am the South
I am a medieval castle
I am of stone and metal
I am from the sea and the inland
 
I am Spaniard
And I say that with sincere pride
I am happy when I walk on its ground
Messenger of a love song
 
I am Spaniard
Heir of Sancho y Quijote
My customs don't touch them
Don't touch them
These are things that are deep inside of me
Of my heart
 
I am a grill and a big steak
I am Sabina and Camarón
I am an olive tree, I am a vineyard and sky
I am a mountain, I am a volcano
I am a poem, I am a saying
I am a sweet talker, I am Don Juan, I am a bullfighter
 
A tear on the return
A perfume of carnation
I am a guitar and drum
I am the light of April
Moon and Sun, land and sea, snow and fire
 
I am Spaniard
And I say that with sincere pride
I am happy when I walk on its ground
Messenger of a love song
 
I am Spaniard
Heir of Sancho y Quijote
My customs don't touch them
Don't touch them
These are things that are deep inside of me
Of my heart
 
I am Spaniard
And I say that with sincere pride
I am happy when I walk on its ground
Messenger of a love song
 
I am Spaniard
Heir of Sancho y Quijote
My customs don't touch them
Don't touch them
These are things that are deep inside of me
Of my heart

Thank you so much! I thought I was missing something with that line, and I don't know why that didn't click because I know both of those singers haha

'Sun' shouldn't have its first letter capitalized. Also, a typo on that same line: see → sea

Thanks for catching that mistype. However, Sun is capitalized because it is referring to the astronomical context of the word and not a poetic meaning. Thanks!
