Color Esperanza

Sometimes I just miss home, living away from your people is like living away from yourself.  In tose moments, I cook a Bolivian dish or I listen to my music. I found Diego Torrez on you tube and this song made my day. I had not heard it in a long time; it made me sing, his is one of my favorite songs, it made me dance and gave e big smile.  I love the rhythm, it has that Latino not commercial rhythm that I miss so much.

The singer and composer,  Diego Torrez; the song The Color of Hope or better yet Color Esperanza.

Lessons from the song besides rhythm.  Verbs, similes, optimism and a better perspective in life.

Color Esperanza

The color of Hope

Se que hay en tus ojos con solo mirar

que estas cansado de andar y de andar

y caminar, girando siempre en un lugar. 

Se que las ventanas se pueden abrir

cambiar el aire depende de ti

te ayudará, vale la pena una vez mas.

Saber que se puede, querer que se pueda

Quitarse los miedos, sacarlos afuera

pintarse la cara color esperanza

tentar al futuro con el corazón.

Es mejor perderse que nunca embarcar

mejor tentarse a dejar de intentar

aunque ya ves que no es tan fácil empezar

Sé que lo imposible se puede lograr.

que la tristeza algún día se irá

y así será, la vida cambia y cambiará

Sentirás que el alma vuela

por cantar una vez mas

Saber que se puede querer que se pueda

quitarse los miedos, sacarlos afuera

pintarse la cara color esperanza

tentar al futuro con el corazón  (2x)

Vale más poder brillar

que solo buscar ver el sol

Pintarse la cara color esperanza

tentar al futuro con el corazón

Saber que se puede…

Querer que se pueda.

Pintarse la cara color esperanza

tentar al futuro con el corazón

 

I know what’s in your eyes with just looking at you

(I know) you’re tired of walking and walking,

always in circles in the same place.

I know that windows can be opened

to change the atmosphere depends on you

it’ll help you, it’s worth just once more.

To know that it’s possible, to want it to happen

To get rid of fears, to expel them.

To paint our faces with the color of hope,

to tempt the future with our hearts.

It’s better to get lost than never having boarded,

better to fall in temptation than giving up trying

even though you see it’s not that easy to start.

I know that impossible can be achieved

that sadness will go away one day

and it’ll be like that, life changes and it will change.

You’ll feel your soul flying

for singing one more time.

To know it is possible, to want it to happen,

to get rid of fears, to expel them

to paint our faces with the color of hope

to tempt the future with our hearts. (2x)

It’s better being able to shine,

than just trying to look at the sun.

To paint our faces with the color of hope

to tempt the future with our hearts

To know it’s possible,

to want it to happen.

To paint our faces with the color of hope.

to tempt the future with our hearts
