Track Name: Cambiar
Tal vez si me rajara la piel
si dejase de ver, me pondría a llorar
no sé qué me espera detrás
pero en este rincón aún te puedo observar.
Si tus ojos me dejaran de hablar
si ese espejo al brillar no pudiese mirar...

Esas ruedas que se oyen llegar
son del coche que hoy ya me viene a buscar,
y no me quiero ir, necesito esperar
un milagro hoy aquí porque nada va a pasar...

Se fue la gran oportunidad
cara extraña que vio y que nunca volvió
y el tiempo empieza a ir hacia atrás
y parece que no va a volver a parar...
Las pistolas llegan sin munición
sabotaje cruel, quién ha podido ser...

Mil gusanos en mi mente hay
y aunque sigan ahí no me van a asustar
y no quise mirar, pero al ir a dormir
y mis ojos cerrar ahí volvían a estar,
en un ángel confié y no me aseguré
de que no se compró la corona en el corte inglés...

No sé si sigo viva o qué
pero no puedo ver, sólo oigo llover.
Sentí un fracaso en mí
y ya nada es igual, pero vuelve a empezar.
Track Name: No se me da bien el blues
No se me da bien el blues
No se me da bien el rock
No se me da bien el pop
No se me da bien el jazz
No quiero saber nada más que ayer
No quiero pensar, ni sentir ni ver
Track Name: I would like to go to London
When I thought I was sleeping
When I thought I was dreaming
There you were! there you were
I try to understand it,
There's no reason to stay here
Go away! go away

And when I feel that I'm certainly dreaming
Well, then I know that the morning is coming

I can see your face laughing
I can hear your mouth shouting
Go away! go away
There's no doubt, you're complaining
And the words keep on saying
Go away! go away

I would like to go to London
Track Name: Didn't know
Didn't know you were so fine
Didn't know you were so great
Didn't know you were so fine, so fine

Show me your scar of war
And I swear I didn't know you were so good
Show me your smile once more
And I swear I didn't know you were so cool...

Beautiful eyelashes over those deep blue eyes
Hard chords sounding in the air
Never stop, keep on playing...

Thank you, it's been a lonely time
Thank you, it's been a real shock

Look at me now and see
Everything I want to tell you with my smile
Look at the things you've done
Yes I swear I didn't know you were so fine...
Track Name: The river
The river takes me, the river calls me
And lets me hear its heart
And when I listen I want to stay there
But I can't keep my breath anymore

When the river calls me
I gotta go with you, it says
Yeah, the river tells me the secret of love

Oh, river, don't let me cry before his eyes
Oh, river, don't let me fall before it's time
Sometimes I can't stand it,
'cause I think I'll never understand...

When the river calls me
I talk to you without you know
When the river calls me
My heart goes among my words...

The river tells me, the river shows me
And opens up my eyes
And when this happens I know that somewhere
A little angel falls from the sky...

When the river calls me,
I gotta go with you, it says
Yeah, the river tells me
How easy is to throw a stone
Track Name: My friend Mary
My friend Mary, she's invited us all
My friend Mary, to have lundh at her home
My friend Mary, take a look at her world
My friend Mary, you can see her alone, alone, alone.

She says she's got a lot of problems
But I know they aren't so different as others
She calls me almost everyday
To tell me her existence is so, so dramatic...

She says Dutty's got a better life
But she knows now that won't be so nice
She complains about heer sons
And Denise she whishes she coud have one...

I want to think of you one more time, one more time...
She says she's got a lot of problems
But I know they aren't so different as others
She calls me almost every day
To tell me her existence is so, so, so sad...
Track Name: Beautiful song
Give me the music, give me the lyrics
I'll sing the sweetest song you've heard.
Bring me the voices, bring me the rhythm
The feelings will come out from us.

The song is written
and it will sound some day
As long as everybody's ready to play.

If you have no good voice
But your feeling is true
We'll always trust in you again
And never worry if you sing out of tune
You'll always have another chance.

The song is sounding
and it will never end
As long as everybody's ready to play.

Don't think of those days
When you felt alone
You thought that things could never change.
Open your eyes now, see that you're lucky
Having friends who care for you.
Track Name: Happy loser
One, two, three, here I am
I think I feel awake
Four, five, six, levitate
And you will find the way.

Come on and struggle for that ugly doll
You saw out there with all the toys
Come on and try to understand everything
She tells you, they are only words
They are only words.
Just two simple words that you won't forget

All the people you can see
All the sounds that you can hear
All those eyes that look at you
All those cats who purr and purr
I don't wanna, I don't wanna,
I don't wanna leave.
Let's just wait, I know the sun is
Coming back again...

And the water tastes so rank
And the food it is so bad
But I'm getting used to it
And I feel that now I'm free

Seven, eight, I could say
I miss you, but I don't.
Nine and ten, you were nice
I hope you understand.

And there're so many hand into the wall
So many hands that I can't touch.
I feel like I am in a movie and
It is just the preview of a life.
It's just the preview of a life.
The silly movie will be called
"A happy loser in New York"...
Track Name: La estrella sin luz
Mucha diferencia tiene que haber
Para que nuestro ser nada tenga que ver
Mucha diferencia no puede haber
Para que el mismo sol nos dé luz a los dos.

Dime lo que te cuenta tu corazón
¿Es realmente algo tan raro?
Dime lo que te cuenta tu corazón
¿Es que es algo tan lejano?

Y pienso en ti, sólo quiero oírte una vez más
Y pienso en ti, y me pregunto
Por qué me atraes cada vez más.

Tienes el calor, y abrasas al soñar
Tienes el valor, y tienes mucho más.

Mucha diferencia tuvo que haber
Para que algo tan vil te llevara de aquí
Mucha diferencia no pudo haber
Para que un mismo son nos guiase a los dos

Dime qué te contaba tu corazón
¿Era realmente algo tan raro?
Dime qué te contaba tu corazón
¿Es que era algo tan lejano?

Y pienso en ti, sólo quiero oírte una vez más
Y pienso en ti y me pregunto
Por qué al final te fuiste sin más.
Track Name: You know you got me
Everybody's going out, yeah
Everybody's going out, yeah
Everybody's taking me, yeah
Everybody's going out, yeah

You can tell me everything
Yeah

You can tell me everything,
You know you got me
Track Name: Nirvana sounds
I saw you walking down the subway
I saw you with the Rolling Stones
I heard you singing Bob Dylan
And tuning your guitar all alone

I went to the art museum
I saw the big Picasso there
I stared at those magic paintings
And then I saw you there with Dalí

And I hear Nirvana sounds

My head always dries the end

And when two lovers woo that's I love you
Track Name: Forgetting you
Perhaps that party was alright
Music and lights shining all night
But nothing in my mind was really true
'cause something was missing and it wasn't you

Forgetting you was very, very little hard
'cause there are things
That really matter but not you

The classes are boring, I can't concentrate
When I think of you my thoughts are very far
But I look at the people who's in the place
And I really think you're not the only one

Now get ready 'cause you're gonna know
The things I've been thinking all this time
No, it's not about you love
It's about living my own life

Like a clown you made me laugh
Like a bird you sang your song
But now the circus has closed down
And the clouds have stopped your sounds

Why do we talk
If we know we have nothing in common?
Let's say goodbye
And we'll see what's coming up tomorrow
Track Name: Where's my mother?
Where's my mother? Where's my mother?
I wanna talk to her

Anywhere, any place, I need to talk to her,
Any time, anyway, I wanna see her face
On the phone, in the bus, I wanna talk to her
In the sun, in the night, I need to see her face

I don't know what's wrong
I can't find the words

Say goodbye now

La, la, la, la, la, there're no words to say
La, la, la, la, la, there's no need to wait
Track Name: Inútil
Tengo algo
Aquí dentro que bulle y quiero sacarlo
Tengo algo
Aquí dentro que bulle y quiere salir
Es algo fuerte que me está matando

Tengo algo
Que me hace observar cosas que no existen
Tengo algo
Que no quiere sentir lo que mis ojos ven
Es algo débil que no quiere irse

A veces me hace sonreír
Y a veces me empuja a llorar
Y nunca deja que descanse a gusto.

Tengo algo
Que me gusta tener pero me está cansando
Es algo
Que me engaña y me dice lo que quiero oír
Y me acompaña y luego me abandona.

A veces le he visto reír
Pero tampoco es tan feliz
No es lo que esperaba pero no puedo echarle

Una escalera en vertical
Y dentro sueños que se van
Es algo mudo que no sabe callarse
Los besos llegan y se van
Y quien los ve los va a olvidar
Pero quien los siente los guarda para siempre.
Track Name: El pelirrojo
Hay un pelirrojo que no dejo de mirar
No atiendo a razones, voy a donde está.

Te invito a un café, te invito a una coca
O a algo de chocolate
No quieres tomar nada, bueno, da igual,
Pero no te marches.

En la biblioteca no te paro de mirar
Y es que con tus gafas aún me gustasmás.

No puedo estudiar contigo delante
No puedo concentrarme
Voy a tomar el aire a la cafetería
Ven a acompañarme.

Tengo mucho sueño, la clase puede esperar
Antes que aburrirme voy a dibujar.

Te veo venir, te has cortado el pelo
Vaya, qué sorpresa!
Me miras, yo te miro, has roto mis esquemas
Pero qué bien te sienta.
