Español

Golondrinas de un solo verano
con ansias constantes de cielos lejanos.
Alma criolla, errante y viajera,
querer detenerla es una quimera…

Golondrinas con fiebre en las alas
peregrinas borrachas de amor…
Siempre sueña con otros caminos
la brújula loca de tu corazón...

(Instrumental)

English

Swallows of just one summer
with constant yearning for faraway skies.
Creole soul, roaming and wandering,
attempting to stop it is a fantasy...

Swallows with fever in the wings
pilgrims drunk on love...
Always dreaming of other paths...
the crazy compass of your heart...

(Instrumental)
