Blooming Orange Tree

lyrics

(English translation below)

Era mas blanda que el agua
Que el agua blanda
Era mas fresca que el río
Naranjo en flor

Y en esa calle de estío
Calle perdida
Dejó
Un pedazo de vida
Y se marchó

Primero hay que saber sufrir
Después amar, después partir
Y al fin andar sin pensamiento
Perfume de naranjo en flor
Promesas vanas de un amor
Que se escaparon en el viento

Después, que importa del después
Toda mi vida es el ayer
Que me detiene en el pasado
Eterna y vieja juventud
Que me ha dejado acobardado
Como un pájaro sin luz

Que le habrán hecho mis manos
Que le habrán hecho
Para dejarme en el pecho
Tanto dolor
Dolor de vieja arboleda
Canción de esquina
Y con un pedazo de vida
Naranjo en flor

Primero hay que saber sufrir
Después amar, después partir
Y al fin andar sin pensamiento
Perfume de naranjo en flor
Promesas vanas de un amor
Que se escaparon en el viento

Después que importa del después
Toda mi vida es el ayer
Que me detiene en el pasado
Eterna y vieja juventud
Que me ha dejado acobardado
Como un pájaro sin luz.


(ENGLISH)

Blooming Orange Tree

She was blander than water
Than soft water
She was fresher than the river
Blooming orange tree

And in that street of weariness
Lost street
She left a piece of my life
And left...

First one must know how to suffer
Then love, then part
And finally go on without a thought
Perfume of blooming orange tree
Empty promises of a love
That escaped with the wind
And then, who cares about the "then"!
All of my life is yesterday
That keeps me in the past
Eternal and old youth
That has left me a coward
Like a bird without light

What must my hands have done to her
What have they done...
To have left in my chest
So much pain
Old grove pain
Corner music
With a piece of life
Blooming orange tree

First one must know how to suffer
Then love, then part
And finally go on without a thought
Perfume of blooming orange tree
Empty promises of a love
That escaped with the wind
And then, who cares about the "then"!
All of my life is yesterday
That keeps me in the past
Eternal and old youth
That has left me a coward
Like a bird without light...
