lyrics

Luces del pueblo como reflejos del mar
Luces de la vida donde quiero estar

Luces del cielo en el camino salteño
Luces de la luna en las noches sin sueño

Que no se tapen las luces

Luces de las velas en el bar La Catedral
Luces de los ojos que comparten sin hablar

Que no se tapen las luces
Que no se las tapen las palabras

these walls take me back in memory through mazes of colored rooms
these paintings hanging tongues that lick and heal our wounds
these tables are deep dark wells from which flows the purest water
these candles ticking meters that burn and limit by the hour

Buenos Aires took me by the hand and moved me to her inner dance
this heart hanging busted broken in lost love song and ancient chant
the face of the famous gardel watching over los tangueros
his bright smile and white eyes blind us as they shine

Que brillen sin parpadear


[Spanish - English Translation]

Without blinking

Lights of the town like reflections in the sea
Lights of a life I want to lead

Lights, dont hide yourself away

Lights of the sky along walks through Salta
Lights of the moon on sleepless nights

Lights, dont hide yourself away

Lights of the candles in the bar La Catedral
Lights of the eyes that speak without their mouths

Lights, don't hide yourself away
Words, don't hide them away
Shine on without blinking
